THE HOUSE BUNNY NOW ON DVD!!

Posted in Uncategorized by kiwi on January, 17 at 4:36 pmComments Off

HOUSE BUNNY DVD

THE HOUSE BUNNY is now available on DVD. I highly suggest that you buy it. For those of you that have been living under a rock, here is the plot:

When Shelly, a Playboy bunny, is tossed out of the mansion, she has nowhere to go until she falls in with the sorority girls from Zeta Alpha Zeta. The members of the sorority – who also have got to be the seven most socially clueless women on the planet – are about to lose their house. They need a dose of what only the eternally bubbly Shelley can provide… but they will each learn on their own to stop pretending to be what others want them to be and start being themselves.

Just to make things easier on you, I’m adding the link so you can purchase this gem right now.
