Legimate question: If you move from ESPN2's "Cold Pizza" to another ESPN2 show with Mario Lopez, is that considered a promotion? We're just asking. (Correlary question: Would you rather work with Woody Paige or a guy who used to hang out with Screech? Actually, that's kind of the same thing.)
Former "Cold Pizza" host Thea Andrews is co-hosting the upcoming "ESPN Hollywood," and she chatted with the readers of the Ft. Worth Star-Telegram about it. Money quote:
Athletes are very excited about the show. Their publicists are VERY excited about the show. They're already calling, pitching us ideas.
Yep: You're gonna be getting tons of stories about all of Ron Artest's rap stars. Boy, we can't wait.
