Emma Stone won 2004 'Partridge Family' reality competition

In 2004, Emma Stone was just plain Emily, fighting for fame on a reality show. The future actress participated on a VH1 series that aimed to create a new "Partridge Family" … and won a role!

“In Search of The Partridge Familysaw eight people competing for the roles from the ‘70s sitcom. A brunette Stone was one of eight “Laurie” contestants, who were judged on their singing, acting and resemblance to the original actress.

After belting out hits like “We Belong,” “Emily” won the role of Laurie Partridge and filmed a pilot episode for the “The New Partridge Family," according to the Huffington Post.

Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately), the series was canceled.

Singer Teddy Geiger also appeared on the show, competing for the role of Keith. Geiger and Stone reunited for the 2008 comedy “The Rocker.”

In the end, Stone didn’t need “The New Partridge Family.” Luckily for us, she switched her focus from singing to acting. She changed her name from Emily to Emma, snagged a role in Judd Apatow's comedy “Superbad,” and burst onto the Hollywood scene in 2007.

The 22-year-old currently stars in big screen hits “The Help” and “Crazy, Stupid, Love.”

    Hamburgers are usually a feature of fast food restaurants. The hamburgers served in major fast food establishments are usually mass-produced in factories and frozen for delivery to the site. These hamburgers are thin and of uniform thickness, differing from the traditional American hamburger prepared in homes and conventional restaurants, which is thicker and prepared by hand from ground beef. :

    Hello Hollywood, does anyone hear me? A classic example that some things should NOT be remade or resurrected!
    I'm glad it flopped, just leave the past alone and get your creative juices flowing on something relevant about today other than trailer trash reality shows! Use your BRAIN.

    I remember this show & it was pretty bad. I watched it coz I loved the original PF when I was a little kid. But none of the contestants were really very good & I wasn't surprised when the pilot went nowhere.

    She is a really good actress and her career will continue to grow. They all have to start somewhere.

    Thank God she chose to chase acting because she can't sing. That sounded like a bad karaoke performance.

    According to the new media regs, put in place long after this show ended, there will have to be at least 1 black Partridge.

      Go get some help for your poor self-image.

      What makes you think the poster has a poor self image Sammy? I figured they were either a fan of the California cheese "Happy Cow" commercials (which I have to admit are pretty funny & I live in Vermont), or a fan of Bill Hicks... or both.
