Several D-list celebrities, including Kim Richards, were rushed to the emergency room this morning after they hit rock bottom while practicing for tonight’s premiere of Fox’s ‘Stars in Danger: High Dive,’ a reality diving competition featuring individuals who stretch the definition of the word celebrity.
“It’s always dangerous when a celebrity hits rock bottom,” Fox President Kevin Reilly told Hollywood & Swine. “Just look at Whitney Houston and Corey Haim. We didn’t think it was humanly possible for the celebrities on our show to sink any lower than appearing on ‘Stars in Danger.’ But we were wrong and really should have made the pool much deeper.”
“Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Kim Richards, former NFL star Terrell Owens, and actor Antonio Saboto Jr. all hit rock bottom and were knocked unconscious after diving into the pool during the early morning practice for tonight’s show. According to horrified witnesses, all three would have drowned, but fortunately, two of the other D-list celebrities on the show — Alexandra Paul and David Chokachi — played lifeguards on “Baywatch” in the 90s, and dove into the water to save them.
Following the injuries to the three D-list celebrities, the network scurried to find several replacements, including actor Richard Grieco, who is reportedly living in a storage unit (Hollywood & Swine, June 14, 2012), and Emilio Estevez, who currently works at Taco Bell (Hollywood & Swine, June 28, 2012).
Luckily, for the injured D-list celebrities who may not be able to compete in tonight’s televised competition, they’ll be able to get a second chance for diving glory on ABC’s “Celebrity Splash,” another reality diving competition featuring D-list celebrities that will air on March 19th. ABC is threatening legal action against Fox for stealing their idea and beating them to the air with it.
“I came up with the idea of ‘Celebrity Splash’ this past summer while flipping back and forth watching diving in the Olympics and Lindsay Lohan’s downward spiral on ‘TMZ,’ ” said ABC President Anne Sweeney.
