Jose Canseco and Omarosa in the Same Nut House

You know Jose Canseco as the American male who had it all: a dream baseball career, an MVP trophy, a World Series ring, hot Latin good looks, huge gorgeous lusciously cut biceps . . . uh . . oh, a rumored relationship with Madonna, millions of dollars, cars, mansions, and adoring fans.
Since then, he's written a tell-all book about illegal steroids and other nice-nice tidbits in pro baseball, and thusly, ended his chances to get into the Hall of Fame someday. Fair enough. But with all his riches, it slays me why he would agree to do something as lame as "The Sureal Life," a reality TV show that pits has-been celebrities in a house hoping for a volatile mix. Or just anything interesting.
The upcoming series will feature yet another group of B-list (and c-list) celebs while they are filmed 24/7 living and playing together in a mansion in the Hollywood Hills. The hapless seven are: Jose Canseco, motorcross champ Cory Hart, model Caprice, former model Janice Dickinson, actor Bronson Pinchot, Sandi Denton (Salt-n-Pepa), and former Apprentice diva contestant Omarosa Manigault-Stallworth.
, Let's look at that list one more time: a superstar MVP baseball 'roid head, rock star Pink's boytoy, a vomit diet stick figure model, an aging former 70s supermodel and Sylvester Stallone's ex-fiance, Serge from "Beverly Hills Cop," a gangsta chick, and the evil incarnate herself.
The inclusion of Omarosa shows that VH1 is picking up on the latest trend: recycling outrageous or controversial TV reality show contestants to boast ratings on other shows. (Witness Rob and Ambuh on AR7). Why, Omarosa is actually lucky she didn't win a job with Donald Trump -- she's found a niche just being Omarosa. Imagine, the dumbass winner of "The Apprentice" actually has to shlep around a briefcase and show up for work for a year while many of the other contestants ("You're fired!") are cashing in on their continuing 15 minutes of fame.
Shows have already begun taping. The season premiere is set for September 4. Punches will be thrown.
