It’s been two years since Stacy Keibler had her last big television gig on the hit series, Dancing With the Stars in 2006. Now in September 2008, Stacy returns to the small screen for a brand new mini-series on ABC Family, “Samurai Girl”. The show kicks off tomorrow night (Friday) at 8pm on ABC Family and has gained a lot of buzz over the past few weeks. Reason being? It seems ABC Family is a network on the up. ABC Family has introduced a slew of high rated programming over the past couple of years including Greek, The Secret Life of the American Teenager and Kyle XY. This really could be a big break for Stacy if Samurai takes off.
Anyhoo enough talking, more staring! Check out Stacy’s promotional shots for the series below. What do you think of Stacy’s basic black look? Yay or nay? Let us know in the comments!
In an interview with the Boston Herald, Stacy had the following to say on her current career:
â€œI donâ€™t take it for granted that I have a deal,â€ she said. â€œI still feel like I have a lot to prove. Thatâ€™s why I work so hard. You never learn as much as you do when you work. And when Iâ€™m not working, Iâ€™m still in acting class three or four times a week.â€
Also in the article, Stacy mentions that she has turned down many jobs for acting, hosting and more. Perhaps if she had said yes to a few of them, she wouldn’t be at Kim Kardashian’s level of fame? Anyhoo, Samurai Girl begins tomorrow night, tune in won’t cha?! As I mentioned on yesterday’s podcast, Mickie James‘ episode of Psych also airs tomorrow night (10pm, USA Network) so we’ll see which Diva wins the ratings war. Oh and both shows are also up against Friday Night SmackDown. Who’ll come out on top?
