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.

HAHAHA!!! That Saved By The Bell Episode with Jesse's "addiction" was so incredibly gay (as were all the episodes). It was like she was a meth addict or something. I NEED MORE NO-DOZ NOW BITCHES.

I actually loved Showgirls.. Yes it was bad but it was damned entertaining which is more than you can say about some movies deemed 'good' by whoever the critics are...

"OK people need to stop pretending like they dont secretly love this movie, it was groundbreaking at the time it came out, whether people want to admit it or not and I am so sick of this girl being beaten up over this already !!! give her a break and let her have a career"

Exactly!! Kyle MacLachlan was in two heavily & explicit graphic sex scenes with Elizabeth Berkley in that movie, but he can play some goodie-goodie on Desperate Housewives with not one complaint. But with Liz, it's the total opposite!! Hollywood is like "She can't play (insert role here)!!! She played that HOAR in Showgirls!!!" TOTALLY HYPOCRITICAL!!! Paul Verhoven, Joe Esterhaus (Directors) Alan Rachins (Actor - L.A. Law), Gina Gershon...the list it long. But with the exception of Liz, everybody else got a pass.

People need to get off their high horses, get off her back, and just leave her the HELL alone!!! Liz is a great actress, and it's a shame that has to deal with this crap on an almost daily basis.


BTW: I actually liked Showgirls. I didn't think it was that bad.

Showgirls is the "best, worst movie" ever made!!! If you can't see the sheer camp genius I'm guessing you're the type who thought Caddyshack was funny. Go Elizabeth Berkley...too bad it couldn't be Gina Gershon, cuz Crystal Connors is a STAR!!! Can't wait for the show!!

I am probably one of the few thousand people that loved Showgirls. :) Anyway, she actually is a trained dancer. At least she has those credentials for the show...
