Celebrity Paranormal Project

Just in time for Halloween, the Celebreality (TM) braintrust over at VH1 has come up with a way to blend the freakshow entertainment that is Gary Busey (and other recognizable people) with ghost stories. It's brilliant, brilliant I tell you! They send a "team" of celebrities to a supposedly haunted location, at night, without a crew, give them some paranormal research equipment and cameras, split them up as much as possible, and scare the crap out of them.

What I found most amusing about the one episode I've seen so far is how sincerely into it the team is. People you'd expect to be completely cynical and skeptical (like my fave from the "I love . . ." series, Hal Sparks) are actually really open to the idea of ghosts, and people you'd expect to be easily freaked (like ANTM's Toccara) end up being all "whatever, I'm tired" when left alone in an abandoned hospital in the middle of the night. Love her!

This week's episode features Ethan Zohn, Rachel Hunter, Godfrey, Traci Bingham, and Tony Little.

Hal Sparks being really into things does not surprise me in the least. Had you watched Celebrity Duets, you would have seen him totally oversing hair metal songs on a weekly basis, with not one bit of irony.

It wasn't all that pretty.
