Burbank resident on ‘Weakest Link’

BURBANK -- Burbank resident Jessica Dyer competes against a

time-share salesperson, a telemarketer, a tax collector, a Department

of Motor Vehicles employee and a meter maid on an upcoming edition of


“The Weakest Link” that focuses on “The People You Love to Hate.”

The Lexus of Glendale saleswoman said she aced the audition

because “the louder and the more flamboyant you were, the better.”

The contestant had some prior on-screen credits -- having been


voted Miss Congeniality in the 1999 Miss Texas USA Pageant.

Dyer will appear on “The Weakest Link” at 12:30 p.m. Wednesday on

KNBC-TV Channel 4.

Disney hosts celebration

MEDIA DISTRICT WEST -- ABC-TV stars will be on hand to celebrate

the 20th anniversary of the Starlight Children’s Foundation with more

than 500 children and their families at the Disney Studio Lot today.

The international nonprofit organization assists families of


seriously ill children. While the event is not open to the public,

500 children and their families who have received the group’s

assistance will attend.

A donation of $10,000 will be presented to the foundation for its

Hospital Happenings program, which provides parties for children

while they are hospitalized.
