TLC's Looking for Local Fashion Disasters, and MTV's Sending a Dallas "Gutter-Mouthed Girl" to UK Finishing School

Two makeover items for those in need of refreshing. First, we received word that TLC's What Not to Wear will be casting here in the near future. So, Friends of Unfair Park, that of course means a rare chance for you or your favorite frenemy to be utterly humiliated in exchange for $5,000 in new duds and a trip to New York. And don't worry, there are no stereotypes involved -- just check out the e-mail being sent around to local film folk. It's after the jump. Delightful.
Also, this just in from MTV: On February 9, the worst network in the world will debut The Girls of Hedsor Hall, an Americanization of the UK reality show Ladette to Lady in which "12 of the rowdiest, most foul-mouthed women in America" are shipped off to England to become "proper young ladies." (You stay classy, producer Donald Trump.) And, of course, there's a Dallasite in the mix, Lillian, described in the media release thusly:
She's a college grad from Dallas with her eye on a Masters degree in psychology, but you'd never know it. Lillian is a wild, gutter-mouthed girl who parties five nights a week and doesn't think twice about hitting on another woman's man at a nightclub. She hopes that winning this show will be the kickstart she needs to get back in school and on the right track.
If Lillian is naughty and idle, she shall sleep in the back kitchen amongst the black beetles, and be walloped by Mrs. Pearce with a broom stick.
