Last week, you read here that William Shatner was shooting an indie film in Riverside, Iowa, the home town of his Star Trek alter ego, Capt. James T. Kirk. Turns out, it's just a hoax! On Tuesday, Shatner revealed to Riverside's residents that he's really been making a Spike TV reality show about a small town playing host to a Hollywood film shoot. "Everything in front of and behind the cameras was faked," Shatner admitted. "The only thing that was real is the love we have for Riverside." To soften the blow, he donated $100,000 for community projects. Another $50,000 and the town can hire a hit man.
