JO DEE DOES "HOLLYWOOD SQUARES"
Jo Dee Messina will be bringing some of her country spirit and Nashville spunk to national TV next month when she makes her debut appearance on Hollywood Squares, where she'll sit alongside such celebs as Whoopi Goldberg and Kermit the Frog.
"You know how there are shows that you just always remember?" Messina says of the classic game show. "Well, Hollywood Squares is one of those for me . . . and the idea that I could actually be the 'secret square' is so exciting!"
Messina will tape the long-running game of tic-tac-toe merged with trick-or-truth the weekend of Jan. 20-21 in Hollywood. Since she'll already be in L.A., she'll be using the trip as an opportunity to meet with various casting agents and do fittings for the wardrobe for her upcoming Burn 2001 tour.
Jo Dee's five episodes of Hollywood Squares are scheduled to air the week of Feb. 12.
