AOL PopEater’s Shuter Continues to Mix Drinks With Celeb Dish – Breaking the Latest Industry News and Gossip – Only on HDNet!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

DALLAS – (February 16, 2011) Can’t get enough of “Naughty But Nice with Rob Shuter?” Well, neither can HDNet! The network has just extended the celebrity talk show by adding 26 new episodes to the mix. “Naughty But Nice with Rob Shuter,” hosted by one of the most widely read gossip columnists in the world, airs on HDNet every Saturday at 1:00 p.m. ET/PT with a same-day encore presentation at 7:00 p.m. ET/PT.

“Naughty But Nice has quickly become a standout program for us and we’re happy to extend it for 26 more episodes,” said Mark Cuban, Chairman and Co-Founder of HDNet. “Rob gets the hottest Hollywood up-and-comers – along with some of the old guard – to open up and tell him what is REALLY going on. We can’t wait to see more!”

“Naughty But Nice with Rob Shuter” combines the coolest cocktails with the hottest celebrity conversations and is filmed at the ultra chic Gansevoort Park Avenue Hotel in Manhattan.

“Rob Shuter’s ‘Naughty But Nice’ is a great fit for the Gansevoort Park Rooftop,” said Michael Achenbaum, President, Gansevoort Hotel Group. “He is a great guy who always presents a very cool interview. His charming style creates buzzworthy stories while always taking the high road. We are excited to be working with his entire team on this stylish, hot show!”

So far this season, “Naughty But Nice” has featured candid and revealing interviews with today’s hottest names in Hollywood – all over a signature cocktail or two. So far in the program’s first season, Rob broke news of Joan Rivers’ feud with Fox, let all of us know that Holly Madison will not be attending Hugh Hefner’s upcoming wedding and kicked off a firestorm when MTV’s Sofia Black D’Elia defended the behavior on her program “Skins” as something “all teenagers do.”

Other stars appearing with Rob on “Naughty But Nice” are Melissa Rivers, Kim and Kourtney Kardashian, entrepreneur Russell Simmons, Molly Simms, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino (MTV’s “Jersey Shore”), NFL quarterback Eli Manning, Yankee All Star Alex Rodriguez and many more.

Clips from some of Rob’s best interviews can be found at the HDNet web site.

Before joining AOL’s PopEater to pen his “Naughty But Nice” column – which has over 10 million unique hits a month – Rob Shuter was executive editor of OK! Magazine, which quickly became the country’s fastest growing weekly magazine during his tenure. With Rob’s help, the magazine sold its first-ever million selling issue breaking such exclusives as Jamie Lynn Spears’ pregnancy, Britney’s first post-meltdown interviews, Eva Longoria’s wedding and worldwide exclusives of Jessica Alba, Tori Spelling and Matthew McConaughey’s gorgeous tots. Additionally, Rob has represented some of America’s biggest stars — including Alicia Keys, Sean Combs and Jon Bon Jovi. Before being hired by Jessica Simpson, someone told Rob that the decision to hire him would be entirely up to Simpson’s Maltese, Daisy. He walked into that meeting with a pocketful of salami and got the job!

“Naughty But Nice with Rob Shuter” airs every Saturday on HDNet at 1:00 p.m. ET, followed by encore presentations at 7:00 p.m. ET Saturday, 1:00 p.m. ET on Sunday, and 11:00 a.m. ET on Monday and Tuesday.
