America's Greatest Bling: Wendy D-D-D-Diamond


Um, yeah, sorry for the lameass blog day yesterday, I was "indisposed" for a good 12 hours (i.e. working).

And I can't believe that I didn't mention this before but it's a freakin' awesome riot: my boss at the magazine, the inimitable Wendy Diamond, is going to be on a new reality show called Greatest American Dog on CBS. Holy crap. I can't wait to see these people's dreams shattered when they're told that their dog is a moron. I'm hoping to at least see a few good sobbing sesh's from middle-America's finest.

The pic on the right is the official judge's panel - my boss is the hot one, obvs - you think I'd work somewhere where my overseer was whack?

Just in case you're super interested, here's the official press release from Ceebs (shortened - I cut out the stuff about the other judges, oops):

DISTINGUISHED CANINE CRITICS WENDY DIAMOND, ALLAN REZNIK AND VICTORIA STILWELL WILL DECIDE WHO WILL BE CROWNED THE "GREATEST AMERICAN DOG" WHEN THE NEW REALITY COMPETITION SHOW PREMIERES THURSDAY, JULY 10, ON THE CBS TELEVISION NETWORK
Judges Wendy Diamond (and her dog, Lucky) Allan Reznik and Victoria Stilwell will determine the GREATEST AMERICAN DOG on CBS

Distinguished canine critics Wendy Diamond, Allan Reznik and Victoria Stilwell are the three judges who will decide which is the GREATEST AMERICAN DOG when the new reality-competition series premieres Thursday, July 10 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

Twelve extraordinary teams of dogs and owners from across the nation will compete for the title of GREATEST AMERICAN DOG. Hosted by zoologist/television personality Jarod Miller, owners and their pets — from "pageant dogs" to those simply trained at home — will live together and compete against each other in challenges that put the owners' ability to train their dogs to the test. Each week, the judges will eliminate one dog and their owner. The last remaining team will walk away with a $250,000 cash prize and the title of GREATEST AMERICAN DOG.

Wendy Diamond is the Chief Pet Officer, Editor-In-Chief and founder of the animal lifestyle magazine and website, Animal Fair, dedicated to fairness to animals and responsible breeding. Diamond and her rescue dog, Lucky, are frequent pet lifestyle contributors to the CBS' THE EARLY SHOW, "The Today Show," "The View," "Fox News," "CNN" and "Good Morning, America," among many others. She has been featured in numerous publications including Forbes, Time, People, The New Yorker and Vogue. Diamond is the author of two books, How to Understand Men Through Their Dogs and How to Understand Women Through Their Cats, and is currently working on her next book, How to Train your Boss to Roll Over. Diamond is the executive producer and host of the television special Paws for Style, and the co-producer and host of Lucky Travels on Animal Planet. She is also finishing her "Docu-Comedy," In Search of Puppy Love, featuring cameos by Warren Beatty, Paula Abdul and Hugh Hefner, among many more. In addition to her contributions in the pet world, Diamond is also a cause-related entrepreneur whose two best-selling cookbooks, A Musical Feast and An All-Star Feast, have helped raise thousands of dollars for homeless people and children. She and her dog, Lucky, are currently the Chairperson and Chair Dog of the Katrina Pet Memorial Fund, and continue to honor their Mantra of helping the underdog anyway they can.
