This just in! “Vogue” specialist Carson Kressley and wishful drinker Carrie Fisher are in production on a Hallmark Channel original Holiday 2012 movie called Caroling — a modern-day spin on Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. Fisher will play the ghost of a book publisher who used to be Kressley’s boss. Carson, beware! Never go with a hippie to a second location.
I think the real question here — besides “Why can’t they fast-track this mess for 2011?” — is “When is Carrie Fisher going to do Dancing With the Stars?” I say she should join the cast of season 15 in fall 2012 — that way she and Carson, who will hopefully have become a third host by that point, can endlessly plug their Hallmark Christmas movie as often as Tom Bergeron mentions the dreaded “Macy’s Stars of Dance.” No one will get annoyed at all.
Sound like a plan?
