OXYGEN SIGNS ON FOR BATTLE OF STYLE AND SCISSORS WITH HAIR COMPETITION SERIES TEASE, HOSTED BY LISA RINNA

------

Six-Episode Series Set for January 2007 Premiere

------

NEW YORK, October 19, 2006 � Actress Lisa Rinna will use her style and savvy to host Tease, Oxygen�s six-episode hair competition series premiering January 2007. Well known to television audiences from her starring roles on Dancing with the Stars, Soap Talk, Melrose Place and Days of Our Lives, Emmy-nominated Rinna is also recognizable for her signature layered hairstyle. A series big on hair cuts and bold personalities, each Tease episode will feature two up-and-coming hair stylists as they face-off in an outrageous, Olympics-style tournament.

The aspiring stylists will put their skills to the ultimate tress test in front of a panel of expert judges as they compete for a chance at the supreme challenge � a one-on-one battle with a high-profile master stylist. Should they surpass the expertise of a hair pro, their photo will hang on the Tease hair wall of fame and they will receive the �silver scissors,� the crowning symbol of their styling victory.

Tease is executive produced by Michael Yudin for MY Entertainment (King of Vegas, and Pros vs. Joes) and Brian Gadinsky for G Group (American Idol Season One, American Gladiators, and America�s Most Wanted).

�Lisa is a terrific choice for us because she�s the perfect mix of enthusiasm, style, and competitiveness and female audiences love her,� said Debby Beece, President of Programming and Marketing for Oxygen. �She has a big personality and this is a big show with big stakes. Let the games begin.�

In addition to appearing on-screen, Rinna and her husband Harry Hamlin own Belle Gray, an LA-based women�s fashion boutique that has been featured on The Oprah Winfrey Show and awarded the Innovators in Fashion Award from the Laboratory Institute of Merchandising in NYC. Rinna and Hamlin have two daughters, Delilah Belle and Amelia Gray.
