Heidi Fleiss: Prostitutes to Parrots Is an Actual Thing

Heidi Fleiss. Caw, caw.

Animal Planet will air one-hour special Heidi Fleiss: Prostitutes to Parrots on July 31, and it would not be at all surprising if this turned out to be a backdoor pilot. Fleiss's passion for exotic birds was first documented in the 2008 documentary Heidi Fleiss: The Would-Be Madam of Crystal, and her passion for being on reality television was first documented on Celebrity Rehab in 2010. On Prostitutes to Parrots, Fleiss will juggle the difficulties of caring for twenty avian pals, the pressures of owning a laundromat, and the stress of her tenuous sobriety. Madam to Macaws is probably not as catchy a title, but it could have worked. [Futon Critic]
