Debbie Gibson and Tiffany Reuniting

From our "It Came From the 1980s" file: Debbie Gibson, now known as Deborah Gibson, and Tiffany will star together in Mega Shark Vs. Giant Octopus, an original Syfy Saturday Night Movie! Both Gibson and Tiffany have previously appeared in Asylum films — Gibson in "Mega Shark" and Tiffany in "Mega Piranha" — but this is the first time the duo will appear in a film together. Both were huge teen pop stars in the 1980s, which will obviously never die.
Gibson will play an animal rights activist who specializes in freeing exotic snakes from pet stores and setting them loose in the Everglades, where they, of course, grow to enormous sizes. The flame-haired Tiffany is set for the role of a park ranger who "uses dangerous methods to save endangered alligators." This is not ironic, since this is an epidemic, with irresponsible pet owners releasing snakes into the wild, only to have them grow big, have no natural predatory enemy except for the alligator, whom they are battling for "top of the food chain" status. (I read a lot about this stuff!)
The script reportedly includes a scene in which Deb and Tif engage in a brawl, moving from a bar interior out to the muddy swamp. MUD WRESTLING! Between two hot teen stars as adults? I can hear the 40-year-old red-blooded males, who had Teen Beat photos of the stars on their walls, cat calling like crazy. The more important question is will the pair break into a duet?
Reports are that Tiffany approached Syfy with the request that she and Gibson appear together in a movie! The pair were often portrayed as at odds with one another in the media when in fact they were not. You know, girl on girl crime.
Are you planning to watch this? I am!
