"Go forth and magish..."
I think VH1’s Celebreality may have finally gone too far…
I had been meaning to post something about “Celebracadabra” ever since I started seeing the commercials. But after seeing the first five minutes of the premiere, I couldn’t put it off any longer.
If you haven’t heard of it, “Celebracadabra” follows seven “celebrities” who team up with seven professional magicians in a competition to become the best celebrity magician. The celebrities are: Ant (“Celebrity Fit Club”), Kimberly Wyatt of the Pussycat Dolls, Hal Sparks (“Queer As Folk”), Carnie Wilson, C. Thomas Howell, Chris “Kid” Reid of Kid N’ Play and Lisa Ann Walter (“The Parent Trap”).
The sight of the nearly skeletal C. Thomas Howell just makes me want to cry. How could he possibly stoop to this level? I mean, if he was headlining the show, like Scott Baio, it might be different. But trying to be a magician?
And since when did Carnie Wilson become the queen of reality?
But the real kicker of those first five minutes was during the setup of the show when host Jonathan Levit turned to the celebrities and told them “go forth and magish.”
What does that even mean?! STOP THE INSANITY!!!
Is there any chance VH1 will make this show disappear?
If you must check it out, “Celebracadabra” airs Sundays at 9 p.m. on VH1...
