LOS ANGELES (TheWrap.com) - Sex-tape veteran and frequent ''Playboy'' Playmate Pamela Anderson is reclaiming her virginity - at least on Canadian television.
The former ''Baywatch'' babe will play the Virgin Mary - yes, the chaste mother of the Son of God - in CTV's ''A Russell Peters Christmas,'' the Canadian network announced Monday.
The special, which will be hosted by comedian Russell Peters, will deliver ''an irreverent twist on the Christmas special making it unlike anything viewers have seen before.''
No kidding. What, Ron Jeremy wasn't available to play Joseph? Also joining in for the twisted Yuletide festivities: Michael Buble, Jon Lovitz and Ted Lange, lovingly known by millions as Isaac the bartender from ''The Love Boat.''
''A Russell Peters Christmas'' will air Dec. 1 at 9 p.m. ET on CTV - assuming the Christian community doesn't somehow cause a power meltdown with mass collective outrage.Full content generated by Get Full RSS.

LOS ANGELES (TheWrap.com) - Cheryl Forberg, the longtime off-camera dietary architect for the NBC reality series ''The Biggest Loser,'' is leaving the show, she told TheWrap Monday.
Forberg, a best-selling nutrition author who has served as a registered dietitian for the show since its launch in 2004, said she's looking for an on-camera career.
An NBC spokesperson has yet to respond to an inquiry from TheWrap.
''I was there from the beginning - I've been with the show for 12 [cycles]. I co-wrote the eating plan, but I want to be on camera. That's part of the reason why I left,'' Forberg said.
Forberg - who is now sponsored by New Zealand-based appliance maker Fisher and Pykel to produce a cooking show out of her own kitchen - said her departure from the show is unrelated to trainer and former tennis pro Anna Kournikova's decision to leave the series, which was announced earlier on Monday.Full content generated by Get Full RSS.

LOS ANGELES: Kim Kardashian has found herself in a hairy situation - and it has nothing to do with the drama over her impending divorce from NBA player Kris Humphries.
Hair-removal product company Radiancy is suing the ''Keeping Up With the Kardashians'' star, claiming that she's made numerous false and misleading statements while shilling for hair-removal company Tria, which is also named in the complaint.
According to Radiancy, Kardashian made numerous claims during various media appearances and on her Twitter account that can't possibly be true.
Among the alleged falsehoods that Kardashian disseminated: That Tria's laser hair-removal product have been deemed safe and effective by the FDA, and that it also provides permanent hair removal.
The suit goes on to note that, during an appearance on ''The Wendy Williams Show,'' Kardashian claimed that she uses the Tria product ''on [her] entire body'' - even though, by Tria's own admission, the product is unsafe for use on the face, head, ears, neck, nipples, genitals or around the anus, as it may injure skin.
Also, according to Radiancy, Kardashian tweeted last December that she had begun using the Tria product and was ''loving the results so far'' - even though she had just become the company's spokesperson a few weeks before, and Tria's own web site states that a user wouldn't begin to see results from the product for at least 90 days.
These allegedly false statements have done damage to Radiancy's business, the claim states. The complaint is part of an ongoing legal battle between the two companies.
This isn't the first time that Kardashian has come under fire due to her many endorsements - last November, she and her sisters, Khloe and Kourtney, pulled out of a deal to sponsor a prepaid MasterCard because it carried ''outrageous'' fees.
She's also been accused of accepting money to tweet about products without revealing that they were sponsored tweets, though Kardashian, 31, has denied this.
Kardashian's spokesperson did not immediately respond to TheWrap's request for comment.Full content generated by Get Full RSS.
