James Frey: From tarnished writer to TV star?


141055__jamesearl_lSo everybody at PopWatch HQ was watching a sheepish James Frey on Oprah yesterday, and we got this crazy idea for a new series, My Name Is James, in which the disgraced memoirist (left) makes a list of all the lies and inaccuracies in his best-selling A Million Little Pieces, then sets out one by one to make ‘em true – à la Jason Lee’s repenting Earl (right). Tentative title for the pilot episode: ”The One Where Our Protagonist Gets a Root Canal Without Novocaine!”

Oh come now, PopWatchers. Don’t get all shysty on me, you know you’d watch (especially if some visionary network paired it with Here Comes Rhonetta!).
