Miley Cyrus was one happy little bunny today in Hollywood after putting pen to paper in a megabucks deal with PPVTV outfit TBTV* to present her very own TV talk show.
Miley's people regard the deal as the first of many great steps forward in her career projection since she sloughed off the Hannah Montana skin and broke away from The House Of Mouse - the Disney Corporation.
Friends say that immediately after signing the deal, the singer/actor rushed home for a celebratory mountain bike ride in the Hollywood Hills with her dad, Billy Ray, who sang 'Cakey Bakey Heart' back in the day.
TBTV execs were also punching the air in triumph as forecasted advertising revenue rocketed 1,000%, with one describing the deal as 'a licence to print money.'
Miley's first guest on the new show will be herself. It is thought that the show will feature the star talking frankly about herself to herself, followed by a second show in which Miley will talk to herself about issues raised by herself in the first show when she was featured talking to herself.
TBTV CEO Erskin Quint told us:
"When it comes to talking to yourself, Miley is the best in the business. That girl could charm a cheesegrater out of a giant redwood and probably fit the batteries into a grey squirrel. She certainly hits all the right keys on my spandrill.** We're delighted to have her jump ship."
More as we get it.
