We’ve seen celebrities attack each other before on reality shows, and now The CW is offering non-celebs a chance to get up close and personal with stars they can’t stand.
According to Deadline, the network is expected to announce that it's picking up a reality show called “H8R” on Thursday. Hosted and executive produced by “Extra’s” Mario Lopez, the reality show gives a celebrity the chance to confront his or her biggest “hater” so the star can try and convince the regular Joe that all that vitriol is misdirected.
A pilot episode featuring Snooki and Kim Kardashian facing off against their haters has reportedly been well-received. (We gotta ask: If you were to get the opportunity to go toe-to-toe with the celeb you find most detestable, who would it be?)
In addition to "H8R," the network is also expected to announce that it's picked up the Sarah Michelle Gellar series "Ringer," which marks Gellar's return to the small screen as a troubled young woman on the run from the mob.
