Heidi Fleiss, the famous madam who started her own prostitution ring at the age of 22, is following in the footsteps of Mike Tyson in nabbing her own bird-themed reality series on Animal Planet.
The 44-year-old told TMZ that she's scheduled to shoot the pilot shortly with the show based on her famous exotic bird collection. Apparently, it will focus on her day-to-day caring and training of the 20 birds she lets loose around her Las Vegas home.
"They're extraordinary creatures that are complex, intelligent and require a huge commitment," she added.
She went on to reveal that her current flock was the result of a deathbed promise to care for a friend's exotic birds. "I'm a madam and skin trader," she said. "I'm not the type of person who has pets." Look for Fleiss' new series to fly sometime in late 2011.
