Hey, look, it's the cast for the new season of "The Surreal Life!"

Oh, wait, sorry - it's just the owners list for the Hollywood Fame, a new team in the American Basketball Association that seems to have attracted a bizarre mix of celebrities.

Too bad...we were really looking forward to that John Salley/Stacy Keibler romance angle to play out.

Celebrity Owners Announce New ABA Team 'The Hollywood Fame'

LA's Top Basketball Players to Compete for Roster Spots

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- A group of celebrity owners today announced the formation of "The Hollywood Fame," a new team that will join the growing American Basketball Association. Owners of "The Hollywood Fame" include AJ Discala, CEO of Brax Capital Group, Nick Lachey, Geoff Stults ("7th Heaven" and "The Break-Up"), Stacy Keibler ("Dancing With the Stars"), former NBA legend John Salley, former MLB All-Star Brady Anderson, NFL quarterback Kyle Boller of the Baltimore Ravens and NASCAR's Brian Vickers. "The Hollywood Fame" will kick-off its inaugural season starting this November with home games to be played at The Los Angeles Sports Arena.

"We're excited about 'The Hollywood Fame' bringing highly skilled basketball players to the fans of Los Angeles," said AJ Discala, owner, "The Hollywood Fame." "We are creating a unique family entertainment option at affordable prices."

Tryouts will be held on August 29, 2006 from 9:30am-1:30pm (PDT) at the Pan Pacific Recreation Center in Los Angeles to recruit professional basketball players to join the elite squad. Many of the celebrity owners will be on hand to take part in the player recruiting process and show their support for the team. Additional tryouts will be held in September to fill the remaining player spots and for "The Hollywood Fame" official team cheerleaders.

"We are thrilled to have the support of Hollywood behind 'The Fame' and combining professional sports with entertainment makes this a slam dunk," said Laura Brau, President and General Manager of "The Hollywood Fame."

More details on "The Hollywood Fame" and open tryouts can be found on their website at www.thehollywoodfame.com.


The ABA is the most diversified professional sports league in the U.S. with more than 60% of the team owners being African-American, Hispanic, Asian and women. There will be over 60 teams beginning play in November including teams in the US, Mexico and Canada. The ABA provides exciting, fast-paced professional basketball and family entertainment at affordable prices to hundreds of thousands of fans. Community involvement is one of the cornerstones of the ABA with an emphasis on youth groups. This coming season the league will play over 1200 games, employ over 700 players, over 120 coaches, over 600 staff and management personnel and over 300 referees. Since its inception, it has been known for innovative rules with one of the most popular being the 3-D Rule that rewards good defensive play. For more information, visit www.abalive.com.
