Smack-Talkers Compete For Prizes

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – You’ve heard of adding insult to injury but a new game show is adding prizes to insults.

Auditions are currently being held for a new MTV series hosted by Wilmer Valderrama called Yo Momma that will showcase the country’s best smack-talkers and pit them against each other to see who can do the best “Yo Momma” jokes.

The “slamming” series is set to air later this fall, and casting coordinator Rachel Stevens says MTV is looking for 18- to 23-year-olds who are quick on their feet and love trash talk.

They also should be able to come up with harder hitting Yo Momma jokes than these rib ticklers spouted off during recent auditions: Yo Momma is so stupid, she thought fruit punch was a gay boxer, and Yo Momma is so fat, her blood type is Ragu.

Despite all the maternal insults, Stevens says she hasn’t seen anyone cry, adding, “I think everyone knows Yo Momma jokes are not really about your mother.”

However, she thinks Valderrama might want to prepare a few comebacks of his own because she says people are already dissing him and Ashton Kutcher during auditions.
