LOS ANGELES, CA. (Top40 Charts/ Luck Media & Marketing) - With 1,800 fans and 90,000 views and counting on the VH1 Friends
website (www.famousvh1friends.com), former 80s heartthrob Billy Hufsey is by far the most popular star of the network's new hit reality series 'Confessions Of A Teen Idol.'
Those fans, along with millions more who tune in every Sunday night to see his latest adventures, are waiting eagerly for February 16, when 'Better Man,' the inspirational first single from Hufsey's upcoming debut album Confessions, hits Adult AC Mainstream Radio stations across the country.
Hufsey, who became a major heartthrob in the 80s as Christopher on TV's 'Fame' and who wowed screaming teen girls as Emilio on 'Days of Our Lives' into the early 90s, then concertized around the world-including drawing 75,000 people in Israel-is also set to sing 'Better Man' in one of the episodes of the show.
VH1 also approached Hufsey about making a video for 'Better Man,' which will begin filming soon. He expects it to run on the network and be in rotation on VH1.com. He will also be the star of the new independent pilot called 'What's Your Point?,' portraying a right-wing talk show host; filming is set to begin shortly.
'Confessions Of A Teen Idol' invites seven teen idols from the 80s and 90s to live together and reflect on the highs and lows of 'heartthrobbery.'
Joining Hufsey in the camaraderie-filled digs are Jamie Walters ('Beverly Hills, 90210'), Adrian Zmed ('Grease 2,' 'T.J. Hooker'), Christopher Atkins ('The Blue Lagoon'), Eric Nies ('The Real World') and 'Baywatch''s David Chokachi and Jeremy Jackson. After receiving mentoring from a life coach and in their face industry experts (including stylists)-each one will decide whether to attempt a career comeback or to pursue another career path.
On one of the memorable episodes, Hufsey won the contest for one of them to get the contract for Aussie Shampoo from Procter & Gamble.
After several years away from Hollywood, Hufsey re-launched his career last year with an appearance in the film 'Crazy Girls' and the pilot for a series called 'Son of a Gun.'
