2 days, 2 E! ‘True Hollywood Story’ specials

20110727-072908.jpg

It’s been a while since E! aired new specials of it’s long-running documentary series True Hollywood Story, and they seldom air new episodes within months. Oddly, this week will include 2 specials: 1 is brand new and the other is an extension of an old one.

Tonight, E! is giving Jersey Shore’s Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi her own True Hollywood Story in a one hour special that will include friends from the show (Vinny, Sammi, J-Woww) and family members. As I mentioned in my Most Wanted List post, she’s only been on the radar for less than 20 months and has already gotten the THS treatment.

The following day will have the update of the True Hollywood Story of Amy Winehouse. The original special aired back in 2008 and will be updated with important events from that point to her death last week. Speaking of Winehouse, MTV will air a special tribute concert tomorrow at 6:30PM, which includes the late singer performing a concert back in her prime for the cable network.

THS: Snooki airs tonight at 10PM and THS: Amy Winehouse will air tomorrow night at the same time slot.

Amy Winehouse found dead at age 27

20110723-021226.jpg

English pop singer Amy Winehouse was found dead in her London apartment today. She was 27 years old.

Winehouse found early success with her debut album Back to Black which got her multiple Grammys, including Best New Artist, Song of the Year, Best Female Pop Vocal, and Record of the Year for the song “Rehab”. Winehouse has been known in recent years for her struggle with drug addiction and her erratic behavior, shown most recently at a tour in Belgrade, Serbia where she was booed off the stage.

Police found her body at 4PM local time and have not released any other details. Her cause of death is not yet known.

Story developing…
