Local TV Notes: Chicago Woman Tells National Audience She Just Hates Being So Pretty & Other Inexplicable Television Events

Plus: From her Facebook page:

I feel horrible for Paris Jackson she is way to pretty to be doing that to her self life is to short to be doing that to your self and wish her nothing but the best and to get better soon

Because only ugly people have a reason to commit suicide.


2. Chicago Broadcast Museum Out Of Ideas.

"Tragic former child star Gary Coleman's young life is to be remembered as part of a retrospective exhibition in his native Chicago, Illinois," Starpulse reports.

"The late Diff'rent Strokes star's poetry, illustrations and correspondence with stars like Bob Hope and Lucille Ball will be on display for three months at the Museum of Broadcast Communications from 26 June (13)."


3. Take The Hint, Hollywood.

"Village leaders in the Chicago suburb of Inverness are shooting down a production company's request to film a reality TV show about family members of infamous Chicago gangster Al Capone," AP reports.

"The (Arlington Heights) Daily Herald reports that a Los Angeles company had hoped to spend two months shooting The Capones in a seven-bedroom mansion in the northwest suburb."

And the problem was . . . ?

"Police Chief Bob Haas says city leaders were concerned about public safety and wanted more time to consider a zoning change to the site."

Dear Hollywood: That's our way of asking you to, um, make some key investments in the local economy. Consider it a convenience fee.


"The show, set to broadcast on the Reelz network this fall, follows the 'drama-filled, lasagna-loving dysfunctional family' of Dom Capone, who owns an Italian restaurant in Lombard."


4. Pawn Spawn.

"A celebrity pawn store's spawn is bringing pawn battles to a new city - Hammond, Ind.," NBC Chicago reports.

"Wayne Cohen, co-star of the reality television series Hardcore Pawn: Chicago, has reportedly opened a new store dubbed Super Pawn in Hammond, Ind., nearly across the street from the city's established EZ Pawn, according to the Northwest Indiana Times."


5. New Charges Against TV Host.

"Charges of child sex abuse have been lodged against a Chicago Spanish-language music producer and television host already charged in the assault of an 11-year-old girl," the Tribune reports.


Comments welcome.
