Flavor Flav is busy trying to break into the profitable world of autotune balladry, but whatever happened to his Strange Love paramour Brigitte Nielsen? Clean and sober following her time on Celebrity Rehab, Nielsen has been enjoying the fruits of reality TV in continental Europe, filming six cosmetic surgeries for German and Italian audiences in late 2008 and getting booted from France’s La Ferme Célébrités (one of those “stars on a farm” shows) after one week, reportedly because her French ain’t so hot. That she went on anyway is exactly why she made our list of the 15 Biggest Reality Whores.
Thankfully language issues haven’t been a problem on Let’s Dance, Germany’s answer to Dancing With The Stars (she’s Danish). Competing against such legends as German boxer Arthur Abraham and Mathieu Carrere from the film Young Torless (what, you don’t religiously rent from the Criterion Collection?), the Danish dynamo has whizzed past the first elimination, already making this a more worthwhile venture than that French farm fiasco. Looks like the former Red Sonja is putting those fight scene choreography lessons to work! Think they’ll let her on the US version? Watch her shine in the gallery below.
