NEW YORK – Anna Nicole Smith has worked without clothes and without shame -- now she's working without a net.
The first episode of the second-season return of reality show The Anna Nicole Show will be live, adding a new and, until now, unimaginable dimension to the controversial series.
All previous episodes of the train-wreck series have been videotaped, heavily edited and filled with bleeps to cover the colorful language of many of the people on the show - especially Anna Nicole.
And this time around, Anna will be playing her version of the reality show, The Bachelorette -- by holding her own dating contest with five guys.
The live episode -- set to air Sunday, March 2 on E! -- will be "chock-full of dating truths and dares," according to E! Anna will be armed with a lie detector to see if the five hopefuls are really telling the truth.
In this case, the lucky guys who are picked to go on to the next round will be "pickled" (whatever that means) instead of getting the traditional rose on The Bachelor and Bachelorette.
This season, Anna Nicole is also expected to take acting lessons and to undergo hypnosis to better understand herself.
