Is Bravo High?

3/5/2008 6:14 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Somehow the star of "Showgirls" landed a gig hosting a dancing show ... did they not see that train wreck of a movie?!
Elizabeth Berkley: Click to launch
Elizabeth Berkley -- who's proved her acting chops on "CSI" and "Saved by the Bell" -- will host Bravo's Step Up, So You Think You Can Dance "Step It Up & Dance."

It gets better: a press release for the show actually mentions the words "critically acclaimed" and "Showgirls" in the same sentence.

I grew up with Elizabeth Berkley and remember when Showgirls came out. Everyone went to the theature to see what she could do on the big screen. The result was so bad though, that it was the first time I ever watch people walk out of a movie. What an embarassment. This show is going to fail.

Does anyone remember when Bravo used to show quality programming, such as shows about the arts, instead of showing any old cr@p?

To TMZ and the laziest bunch of Wikipedia sourcing tools- Either put down the pipe or go buy one and make use of it. Months and months pass and the "journalism" continues to leak out of your staff, as well as the creativity and apparently the ability to to judge when sarcasm is approproate, as well as HOW to use it.

Everyone who has ever seen Showgirls knows it was horrid- but most agree that the appeal is how bad it was. So mocking a television outlet for trying to put a positive spin when advertising an upcoming show is inane to start with. A+ to Captain Obvious for that. Secondly, while Im no Berkley super fan, the woman has a longer list of credits than what your sloth-ridden writer provided and had the "writer" actually looked into her career as an actress and performer, they'd know that she isnt some B-list shlub with no talent. She is a solid actress, she has background in dance and not just from Showgirls.

Id like to say that this is some over sight but based on the past few weeks of stretching a lot of truth, lame jokes, incindiery headlines for weak stories, and on over all weak writing ability, this article is no surpise, which is sad given that this was the same site that brought to light the Mel Gibson drunken tirade and the ensuing cover up by some law enforcement officials. I get that you guys are trying to constantly get fresh dirt and entertain. But seriously- qulaity far out weighs quantity, especially when you have journalists who actually know what theyre talking about.
