Betty Cohen is leaving Lifetime after only 2 years, and ABC’s Andrea Wong is rumored to be the leading contender to take her place. Wong’s chief glories have been reality winners, like Dancing with the Stars, et.al.

At the upfronts, Lifetime announced reality shows:

How To Look Good Naked–hosted by Carson Kressley who’s probably seen pictures of women naked, at least.

America’s Psychic Challenge–psychics duke it out. How come they never go to Vegas?

and scripted fare:

Army WivesKim Delaney loves a man in a uniform.

and MOWs:

Write & WrongKirstie Alley in The Front, only she’s old, not black-listed.

And if the predictions come true, the hed can be Write and Wong. We crack ourselves up.
