Retroality Interviews Little House's Alison Arngrim; TV Land Announces New Host for She's Got the Look Is... Brooke Burke

Chris Mann's Retroality.TV has a new cover story on Little House on the Prairie's "nasty Nellie Oleson," Alison Arngrim. In the two-part interview titled "Little Bitch on the Prairie" (oh how Chris has good titles!), Alison spills on Walnut Grove's real wench while prepping her wicked-fun one-woman show Confessions of a Prairie Bitch. In part two, she talks about Mackenzie Phillips (One Day at a Time) and the Diff'rent Strokes kids, as well as some hot-button issues. About Diff'rent Strokes, among the items she talks about is that Todd Bridges has a book out coming this March called Killing Willis. In that book, Todd Bridges shares the shocking but ultimately triumphant story of his struggle to find his identity after Diff'rent Strokes. Todd appeared as a guest with Alison on Little House on the Prairie in 1977.

We mentioned a couple months back that TV Land has ordered a third season of reality series She's Got the Look. Now TV Land has announced a new host. TV Land announced that television personality, entrepreneur and former winner of Dancing with the Stars Brooke Burke will host the third season of TV Land's original hit reality modeling competition She's Got The Look. This season of She's Got The Look, which begins production this week in Los Angeles, CA, sets out to discover a beautiful, sophisticated and confident woman over the age of 35 who has the potential to transform herself into a model, representing some of the most high-profile brands and highly-coveted campaigns in the fashion and beauty industries.
In other casting news, the network announced that model and TV reporter Roshumba Williams is joining the series as a judge along with celebrity stylist Robert Verdi and Wilhelmina president Sean Patterson. Emmy Award-winner Allison Grodner (Big Brother) returns as executive producer and has teamed up with executive producer Rich Meehan (Big Brother) in their first project together under their new banner, Fly On The Wall Entertainment. The show has also renewed partnerships with SELF Magazine and world-renowned modeling agency, Wilhelmina Models, Inc.
No premiere date has been announced yet. It is likely to premiere in summer, but stay with us for the actual updates. TV Land PRIME just started a new season of High School Reunion last week and after that is over in March, TV Land PRIME will air the new reality series First Love, Second Chance.
