REBEKAH DEVLIN OUT OF THE BOX
IF PEOPLE were to come dine with me tonight, they’d be sitting in front of the TV eating third-day chow mein leftovers, watching preview discs for TV shows.

Cheryl is tonight’s host and to say she’s eccentric is something of an understatement.

‘‘ This is not staged, this is how I live,’’ she says proudly.
Cheryl declares herself a ‘‘ born entertainer’’ and has a life-size picture of herself dressed as Wonder Woman — she used to do that for a living in Asia. I normally don’t care too much for narration (see the Military Tattoo review), but James Valentine is actually pretty funny — he’s so bitchy.

They score each other and then at the end of the week someone wins $2000.
And what a bunch these dinner party guests are —
