"Prepare for a night of no holds barred, knock down and drag out.....celebrity chat!," according to press notes. "Talk-show host Preston Quick always asks the tough questions, but this night is different. Preston’s Battle of the Divas means no question is too taboo, no answer too scandalous. The fate of two superstars rests in his devilish hands. And sure, he can dish it out; but can he take it? Tonight, anything can happen, LIVE!, on 'The Preston Quick Show.'"
