CBS reality show wants domestic divas



Do your brownies rule? Can you make a centerpiece out of items from the recycling bin? Fancy yourself as a new rendition of Martha Stewart . . . without the legal hassles?

If so, CBS television is looking for you.

The network is taking reality television home, pitting 12 creative types against each other in weekly tasks of gardening, cooking, baking, sewing, crafting, floral arranging and decorating to find a new domestic diva.

A dozen contestants will live together "somewhere in the northeastern United States" and compete, with one being eliminated each week. The show's name, host, prize and broadcast schedule are in planning stages.

To apply, a two-minute creative videotape demonstrating why the applicant believes he or she is a candidate to reign on the domestic throne - and two color photos - must accompany application forms, which can be found at www.cbs.com.

Application deadline: June 18.
