Remember the lovable red headed boy from the Partridge Family? Well, this isn't him! VH1 has been showing previews but I can't find anything on their site about it.

Like Danny is quoted in the article, comparing his life to a car wreck: "You have every right to slow down and look” at the wreck.
I blame Bravo and “Being Bobby Brown.” Because people were so enthralled to see the everyday life of one former R&B bad boy and his former pop princess wife, we now are bombarded with “reality” TV shows about people who have no concept of reality.
