The Two Coreys and PETA

This weekend I’m looking forward to doing…nothing. Yay! The only thing on my calendar is the premier episode of A&E’s new reality series, The Two Coreys, starring Corey Feldman, his wife Susie, and Corey Haim. Finally, Corey and Corey togther again, I can’t wait! I have to say that as a duo, The Lost Boys is my fave C&C flick, but independently, I’m going with The Goonies. That movie just makes me so happy. Maybe I’ll watch them both in preparation for the big event. I actually met Corey Feldman at PETA’s 25th Anniversary Gala and he was super sweet. He and Susie are veg and big PETA supporters, and Corey Haim…well, let’s just say he’s got a lot to learn, which you’ll see in the first episode when PETA staffer Nicole Matthews stops by for dinner.

Some of my friends from PETA’s LA office will be attending the big launch party tonight and I’m sure they’ll have a great time. Since you and I won’t be there chatting it up with the Coreys, check out this exclusive interview with Corey Feldman below and just pretend he’s speaking directly to you.

So how did you first get involved with PETA?
Corey: I’ve been a vegetarian for over 20 years now; I’ve been doing animal rights activist type stuff for that length of time. But the first project I did with PETA was about 6 years ago when I was doing the Surreal Life when I married Susie and did the Meet Your Meat campaign.

What was it exactly that first made you go vegetarian?
Corey: When I was 8 years old, my parents wouldn’t let me do it, and I think I was about 12 or 13 when I made the final decision like, “I know what I’m doing and if you don’t like it too bad.” And that actually came though the influence at the time of Michael Jackson and Stephen Spielberg, because I was working on the film The Goonies. I was eating a steak one day and he sat down next to me and was mooing and saying, “You realize you’re eating a cow right? Why are you doing that?” And then I became friends with Michael and he was vegetarian at the time but no longer is an advocate—but at the time he was very influential in that world. But he brought me to his house and had his chef prepare me my first vegetarian dinner which basically helped sell it. So between the two of them I was like, “Ok that’s it forget it, all bets are off.”

And then you didn’t look back?
Corey: Never once.

In the episode that’s about to air with Nicole Matthews from PETA, how does the whole dinner go over?
Corey: It’s kind of a train wreck but that’s kind of what makes the whole episode work so well and kind of what made the point go across so well. Because what happens in the episode is Nicole comes over and we’re having this great dinner and it’s really informative and the point of it is we’re trying to figure out a new campaign to do with PETA. What happened was Corey found her very attractive, so he starts like hitting on her. We had sort of set up a blind date and he was gonna go off with her as we did our business, but he ended up sending that girl home so that he could focus on Nicole.

Corey: We’re not going to say how it was resolved because that would give away the first episode…

To find out what happens tune in to A&E Sunday night at 10 for The Two Coreys premier. I’ll leave you with this exclusive sneak peak.
