‘Vanilla Ice Goes Amish’ in New Show, Will.i.am Admits Stealing & More
Vanilla Ice has finally found a job that's just the right fit – construction. As CBS reports, the "Ice, Ice Baby" rapper will appear on the upcoming DIY Network show "Vanilla Ice Goes Amish."
The premise of the show? Van Winkle gets his manual labor on, building stuff for the god-fearing people of an Amish society. You can probably expect the hip-hopper putting a glossy finish on some hand-made end tables. Heck, he might even frame a house or two. [CBS News]
