Charm School 3 and My Super Rad Idea

Charm_school_3 I will admit upfront to being rather ignorant to the Rock of Love/Real Chance of Love/Charm School phenomena. I have precious few brain cells at this point in life and I need to preserve them for things like eating and tying my shoes. Plus, my interest in reality TV pretty much stopped around the London edition of The Real World, so these weird spin-offs of spin-offs of spin-offs of shows, featuring the dregs of reality stars, just don't grab me. Well, I'll watch a few episodes here and there, but I can't really get into them.

Anyway, I was just watching the official preview of Charm School 3 and had a sweet idea, inspired by host Ricki Lake.

Two words: John Waters. If you're familiar with the guy, you probably know that Lake is one of Waters' regulars, appearing in four of his classically trashy flicks. Waters has always had a knack for finding the kookiest people to appear in his movies, people who would NEVER stand a chance in mainstream Hollywood if it weren't for Waters' ability to push his movies into the pop culture canon. It's tough to even mention Waters without mentioning his perhaps most infamous muse, Divine.

Despite Waters' documented distaste for reality TV, it would be so fantastic if the Charm School franchise could take a turn for the completely absurd and hire John Waters to search for the new trashy superstar. Because I think the problem that most of these women are struggling with is that they don't have appropriate outlets for their obvious insanity. They think that they are limited to such pedestrian rebellious behaviors as drinking, promiscuity, and fighting with each other, when there's a whole spectrum of weird shit that they could do to expel whatever demons they're harboring. The daddy issues are there. All we need are some cha-cha heels! I mean, seriously, Lake can't honestly sit down with this group and not see shades of Waters all over the place:

I don't like the fact that VH-1 houses pays these girls to be trailer trash whores, provides them with gorgeous homes and other opportunities and I have to clip coupons every week to save on groceries.

I haven't watched a full episode of Charm School but would if they put Supernanny Jo in charge. That is what these girls need -reparenting!

I have a sick and demented love (what else would it be?) of John Waters. I love that he pushes the envelope.

But really? I don't want him stepping foot in reality TV. I thought the conversion of Hairspray and now Cry Baby to Broadway Musicals was bad enough, but I don't want him finding his next Divine (which he'll never find), courtesy of a stupid TV show.

Now if they could gt him to guest on Charm School & see which girl would eat dog shit to be famous, well that would just be awesome.

John could at least be a guest star! But I agree the charm school girls aren't his type. Except maybe Heather. She was butch enough.
