Relax, guys. Donald Trump is giving you the chance to watch Tara Conner and Katie Blair in action again.
Girl-on-girl action? Perhaps.
According to Variety, the Donald and MTV are joining forces on a reality show that will mix The Apprentice with The Real World, along with the winners of Trump’s beauty pageants.
The falf-hour series Pageant Place will see Miss Universe, Miss USA and Miss Teen USA living in the same New York apartment.
Conner, who of course became the subject of controversy after reports of her partying surfaced last year, will also star, serving as a sort of den mother and chaperone to the women. Sounds like the perfect role model to us. It’s just too bad Katie Rees couldn’t have joined her on the program.
“We’d been thinking about everything that happens backstage and how women like Tara captured the imagination of so many of us, including a slob named Rosie O’Donnell, who didn’t like that I gave Tara a second chance,” Trump said. “And we thought, Wouldn’t it be great if we let the cameras roll?”
Tara Conner and Katie Blair have made out at least once. Who knows what the future will bring on Pageant Place?
The three women who hold the pageant crowns always live in the same Gotham apartment during their yearlong reign anyway because they attend to their functions as pageant winners; we assume this job is almost as difficult as that of Tila Tequila and her MySpace posing.
“What’s great is that we’re not bringing them together — we’re tapping into a real situation,” said MTV programming topper Tony DiSanto.
The initial season of Pageant Place will follow the women – current Miss Universe Riyo Mori, Miss USA Rachel Smith and Miss Teen USA Katie Blair – as they model, make appearances on behalf of various causes and embark on international trips.
It could also feature drama between Conner and Blair, who have, shall we say, an unusual relationship.
