Morrow: Morristown has 'Strictest Parents'

For an upcoming episode of the reality show "World's Strictest Parents" on CMT, two rebellious teens, whose parents are fed up with them, are shipped off to Morristown to stay with Scott and Penny Knight. The Knights have the reputation in the community as no-nonsense parents.

The Knights have taken in hard-to-handle foster children for the last eight years. Penny is a probation officer and deals with unruly kids on a daily basis.

The Knights post the children's daily chore chart and have a household set of rules to make sure expectations are clearly understood.

They screen their kids' phone calls and text messages, and attend their social functions. In other words, these two visiting teens are going to get a dose of reality. This episode airs at 8 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 7.

n Sold: Actor/ prankster Johnny Knoxville has reportedly sold the pre-Civil War log cabin that he bought in the Nashville area a few years ago. Knoxville bought the property because it once belonged to his hero, Johnny Cash.

Yes, the artist formerly known around here as PJ Clapp took his stage name "Johnny Knoxville" from his favorite singer and his hometown.

n In the buff (kind of): Starting in January, we can all see Rockwood native Megan Fox in her underwear and tight-fitting jeans.

The sexiest babe from East Tennessee will be featured in an upcoming Emporio Armani Underwear and Armani Jeans campaigns. She posed for the shots a couple of weeks ago in Los Angeles.

The pictures will be in print ads and billboards nationwide, according to Women's Wear Daily, which is reporting the news.

The photos should be very hot: Remember last year's pics? Victoria Beckham was dressed down to her Armani underwear for a steamy campaign featuring her and her husband, David Beckham.

Oh yeah, Fox is still acting: She will star in the comic-book adventure "Jonah Hex" with Josh Brolin and John Malkovich, and in the period drama "Passion Play" with Mickey Rourke, both set for 2010.
