Lifetime Abandons Serena Williams' Nail Salon Show

Serena Williams Show Stopped

Tough break, Serena!

And to add to the bummer of news that it is for the tennis star, not only is lifetime pulling the plug on the series, but Oprah's OWN doesn't want it either:

A source tells us the pilot featured "a salon set-up" and footage of Williams giving Oprah Winfrey a pedicure (possibly taken from the time Williams pampered Winfrey's tootsies on her old syndicated show). Alas, our source says Lifetime programmers "felt the audience wouldn't think Serena was being authentic," even though Williams has studied professional nail care.

While we could get behind the idea that Serena loves doing nails and is probably great at it, it just doesn't sounds like an exciting show to us.

We hate to say it, but this sounds like a good move. Though, maybe it'll find another home and prove us wrong! (We'd be okay with that!)

Good luck, Serena!
