FADED stars never die, they just become . . . blind dates?
In an irreverent twist on the hackneyed blind date show, E! Entertainment Television is pairing wanna-be lovers with celebrities of yore with "Star Dates."
Beginning Dec. 15, viewers can follow Butch Patrick (Eddie Munster from "The Munsters"), Jill Whelen (little Vicki on "Love Boat"), Dustin Diamond (Screech from "Saved by the Bell"), Gary Coleman ("Diff'rent Strokes"), Kim Fields ("Facts of Life") and comic grand dame Phyllis Diller as they brave blind dates with civilians who only learn of their dates' identities when they show up.
