Will Kato Get His 16th Minute?????

Per L.A. event organizer Mac Africa, one-time mini-celebrity and professional houseguest Kato Kaelin (remember O.J.????) is down to the final three for a potential reality show on Fox Reality Channel.kato.jpg

The show is called “16th Minute” about all those 15-minute fame types who never got another look.

Mac is trying to drum up support for the former pal of O.J.’s. But she (yes, Mac is a woman) described the show as giving “people who have had their 15 minutes of fame, one extra minute.”

That minute theoretically makes them famous again.

“Watch Kato go on an emergency backed up toilet call at a kiddies party with Joe the Plumber.”

“Kato shows u why these people are famous by showing news clips and interviews from their past.”

Go to this link, watch a preview and vote 4 KATO.

LAT In 90 Seconds

chemer.jpegErwin Chemerinsky Back At The Helm: UC Irvine Chancellor Michael V. Drake has re-offered liberal scholar Erwin Chemerinsky the job of law school dean, on some conditions that the paper promises to tell you about later. We love live news.

spfrong.jpegThe LAT Learns The Art of Hyperlinks: In a story about online music provider SpiralFrog.com (which by the way, sounds like an atrociously un-user friendly system), the paper inserted a plump, juicy hyperlink, letting readers take a look at SpiralFrog for themselves. We applaud, thee, unpaid high school newspaper intern! Keep up the good work.

ojail.jpgMike Sweeney Said It Best: When accepting the Emmy for his work Late Night with Conan O’Brien, the head writer said, “The rest of our writing staff is back in New York because we have a show tomorrow. Thanks to O.J., we’ll have a show tomorrow.” When the audience applauded, he added, “Thank you. He’s incredible.” And, really, he is.

Mickey Book Author: News Corp. Decision To Not Publish Was ‘Un-American’

mickey_author_7.jpgPeter Golenbock, author of 7, the controversial Mickey Mantle book due this week which along with O.J.‘s If I Did It got Judith Regan canned, says he was surprised by the firestorm the book created and thinks that the decision not to publish both his and O.J.’s book was “un-American.”

Golenbock who says Mantle was “funnier than Chris Rock,” tells the “Mr. Media” podcast he doesn’t understand all the fuss. Some excerpts:

ANDELMAN: Did you ever anticipate the negative storm that has come up around this book?

GOLENBOCK: Well, I didn’t anticipate that Judith Regan would get fired. I knew when I wrote it that some people would really love it, some people would like it, and there would be a small majority and probably a vocal majority who would resent it, “Oh, how can you say such things about Mickey, my idol, Mickey?” So I knew it wasn’t going to come into the world quietly. On the other hand, I had no idea that the Daily News was going to spend three days telling people that my book should be thrown in the garbage can and spending three days trying to get Judith Regan fired. That was a surprise.
