Dream of begging Candy Spelling for cash? Ryan Seacrest can make it happen

Seacrest Do you really want to see these rejections? Ryan Seacrest is giving ordinary people an opportunity to beg C-list celebrities for money via a new E! reality show.

Seacrest's Ryan Seacrest Productions is producing "Bank of Hollywood," a series in which Candy Spelling, poker player Vanessa Rousso, Wilhelmina Models president Sean Patterson and Pussycat Dolls singer Melody Thornton will take pitches from everyday folks in need of cash for a variety of reasons, ranging from fund-raising to funds for an engagement ring.

"The idea's simple," the "American Idol" host told THR. "We are giving away tons of money to everyday people to alleviate the stress of today's climate and have fun."

The series premieres Dec. 14. Seacrest, whose alleged stalker just pleaded not guilty to a stalking charge, also produces "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" and "Denise Richards: It's Complicated" for E!
