The New York Post today reports a made-for-TV reunion between the buttaful Buttafuoco’s (Mary Jo and Joey) and the third member of the once troubled troika, Amy Fisher, the Long Island Lolita.
In case you were wondering, Joey and Mary Jo divorced after moving to the left coast (where all tabloid heroes seem to end up). Joey re-married, after serving time in jail, and Mary Jo’s now engaged. Amy had a baby girl , who’ll turn one this week, with her husband, a retired police officer. I don’t know if she’s still penning a column for a Long Island newspaper.
So why write about this? Because it’s fiction. The “TV reunion” has yet to find a home on broadcast or cable. (I personally think it should be Hi-Def VOD.) To help drum up carriage, the producer’s PR rep went to the NY Post with the exclusive. He offered up Joey who had this to say:
“There’s going to be a lot of shocking revelations, and that’s why I’m excited to sit down to do this.”
I can’t wait.
Bigger question: who’ll grab the foreign distribution rights? This is just the kind of high-brow cultural programming we need to help elevate America’s sagging reputation abroad. Now what ever happened to Tonya Harding ?
