Shortly after finding out they were to be 'cut loose' and expected to 'find their own way,' Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie have been signed to star in a new reality show on Al Gore's faltering TV network, CURRENT, hosted by Keith Olbermann.
It will be the first time a 'Royal' has been forced to take a job for money!
Tentatively titled 'My Big Fat Makeover', the sister uglies will be competing with newly signed capitalism basher, Michael Moore, so fat he can't find his own privates with both hands and a mirror, recovering scientologist Christie Alley, and Sally Bercow, wife of John Bercow, currently speaker of the House of Commons (sic), known in London pub circles as the NAKED LADY IN THE SHEET.
Staff close to the Royal family said the Queen is thrilled to get the girls off the payroll, and happy that while they're getting paid, at least not many people will see them embarrass themselves or the monarchy due to the limited viewers of the off beat channel.
Mother of the pair, Duchess of YUK, no stranger herself to selling herself out to public ridicule for filthy lucre, is said the exposure will lead to even more success and possibly even an in depth interview with deported British talking head Piers Morgan for which she expects the usual fee of 10% 'off the top."
Contestants will take part in weight loss programs, learning simple social graces such as using the right salad fork, learning how to dress themselves properly, the proper time to appear nude in public whilst showing their best attributes, and learning how not to bite the hand that feeds them.
Moore said he's so excited about the opportunity he may even do a documentary about the experience as long as he can 'make about $10M and not have to share the wealth in a country that practices capitalism!"
A Gore spokesman said Al is 'thrilled' about the concept for the new show which is said to be a cross between "The Wags of Warwick," 'World's Biggest Losers" ,"My Big Fat Gay Wedding", "Flip that House" , and "Pre-teen Mothers Coping with Drug and Alcohol Addiction."
As no sponsors have yet stepped forward, the producer said the show will appear 'commercial free' although viewers will get a 5 minute intermission should they feel the need to 'purge!'
