And, of course, it is no secret that Prof. Chandni thinks she 'wuz abso-f'ing-lutely r-o-b-b-e-d' at Miss Universe 2010. It is all good, though, Paula Sugar, honey, because Rima got cleared of her drunken driving charge and is all set to appear on the new FOX TV show 'The Choice,' a celebrity dating show featuring a list of famous bachelors and bachelorettes (including Rima!) who audition sexy singles for a date night. Among the other famous bachelors and bachelorettes are Joe Jonas and Carmen Electra. In each episode, four celebrities sit in spinning chairs and listen to non-famous prospective dates pitch themselves. Over the course of three rounds, the contestant pool is paired down until each celebrity has chosen their date for the evening.
