Father Cutié gets Fox show
First South Park, now Father Albert. Father Alberto Cutié announced Tuesday that he's about to get a new TV show that will air in major markets later this year.
First South Park, now Father Albert.
``This really completes our roster,'' said Frank Cicha, senior VP of programming for Fox Television. ``Tyler Perry, Wendy Williams, South Park, Jeremy Kyle and, now, a minister.''
This is Cutié's first English-language talk show, hence the newly dropped `o' in his first name. Previously, he hosted a Spanish-language program on Telemundo, which earned him the nickname ``Father Oprah.''
Cutié became talk-show fodder in 2009 when got caught smooching on the beach with a secret girlfriend, now his wife, Ruhama, whom he left the Roman Catholic church to marry.
The couple recently had a daughter, and Cutié has become an Episcopal priest.

MEET THE MAYOR
Cast members of the upcom
ing bilingual drama Hacienda Heights partied it up Miami style Monday night, celebrating the premiere alongside other celebrity guests at Fontainebleau's Arkadia.
HH marks Steven Bauer's return to TV (remember Que Pasa USA ?) with another illustrious local, Julio Iglesias Jr.
It stars the local Scarface star, 54, as an ambitious mayor of a suburban California enclave where two families are pitted against each other. Think Dynasty meets a telenovela.
Channel and air date: TBA.
PRETTY AS A PICTURE
