There is a new AMAZING show on VH1 called: Confessions of a Teen Idol.
I accidental stumbled upon it the other and WOW. VH1 has done it again. I just love their ridiculous programming. You really can’t get better than Brett Michaels in his bandannas deciding which stripper he’ll give his heart to. But then he’s not sure if he can fall for a stripper again since “a dancer” as he calls it, broke his heart once and that’s what inspired Every Rose Has it’s Thorn. They just have this knack for finding people who are willing to take themselves way too seriously and exploit that on national tv.
But Confessions of a Teen Idol is hosted by Scott Baio. At the beginning and end of each episode he does this Doogey Howser wrap up about the pit falls of fame and wanting that limelight again. The show is just about former teen idols trying to get themselves back in show business. Check out the cast list:
1)Guy from the Blue Lagoon
2) Guy from TJ Hooker
3) Guy from Fame
4) Jeremy Jackson from Baywatch
5) David Chokochy from Baywatch
6) Eric Neis from Real World New York and The Grind
7) Jamie Walters from Beverly Hill 90210
I KNOW!! JAMIE WALTERS!!!!!!!! WHAT A DREAM BOAT!!!!!
You might remember him from his hit single “How do you Talk To An Angel.” He was also Donna’s bf, Ray on 90210. Please see the below clip to job your memory
Isnt’ that a really beautiful song about Donna? Ok, here’s what happened on 90210. Ray comes into town with his guitar and flannel shirts and sweeps Donna off her feet. Then he throws her down some stairs, he pushes her against the wall, and he sleeps with Valerie. DRAMA. but he from the wrong side of the tracks. He couldn’t deal with Donna being all spoiled and stuff. It wasn’t his fault!
But now Jamie Walters is a dad and doesn’t necessarily even want to be in the public eye. He’s happy just being a dude and hanging with his kids. However, during one of their group therapy sessions they helped him realize how happy he would be doing what he loved the most – music.
cue How do you talk to an angel
If you’re like me, you immediately went to your itunes and tried to find this song so you could listen to it while you did your billing or planning. But OH NOOOOO IT’S NOT ON ITUNES AND IT’S NOT UNDER JAMIE WALTERS. In order to find this song for download, you need to go to Amazon.com and look under the band The Heights. The Heights was a 90210 spin off that lasted for 12 episodes according to IMDB. I think I had that song on cassette as a little girl. I dubbed it off the radio and would listen to it before bed.
Man, I love Jamie Walters.

It’s too bad you weren’t in the women’s control group on the Confessions of a Teen Idol I DVR’d last night. I think Jamie Walter’s feelings were downright hurt when he heard all the harsh feedback. YOU would have made him feel like he was still worthy. In fact, if he saw this blog entry, I’m pretty sure he would be on your doorstep:-)
Don’t you feel like they are forcing Jamie Walters back in to fame? He seems VERY content with his life. I don’t know, I’m worried about him!
Oh and have you seen that show on VH1 where 2 brothers try to find love? Their prospective girls are named Corn Fed and Bay Bay Bay. I mean, are they serious??????
