Last week’s Friday Feature was focused on some of the best returning television series for the 2012-2013 television season and I kind of wanted to continue on with the television theme for Music Monday, as well. I also wanted to shift focus from the brilliant scripted series of the major networks to a very different subset of the entertainment industry – Reality Television. Reality television, in many cases, showcases some of the lowest forms of people this world has to offer. This is not always the case but that kind of unearned fame does have a tendency to bring out the worst qualities in people. One of these qualities is the desire for more fame. Since reality stars are frequently bogged down with this stigma of being no-talent fame-whores, they frequently decide to pursue other careers within the entertainment industry. Most frequently, this career is in the world of pop music. There are countless singles out there by cast members of “Real Housewives” series or “Teen Mom” or any of the other countless reality shows on television. It is not always the case that these singles are so bad, though, and there have been a number of people who started their careers or have been most famous for appearing on reality television who have managed to create really strong careers in music, or at least managed to release one really great song. So, I decided it would be a fun idea to gather up a collection of some of the best, as well as some of the worst, of these reality stars singles. Let’s start with the best!
Julianne Hough from “Dancing With The Stars”
“Is That So Wrong?”
Jess Wright from “The Only Way Is Essex”
“Dance All Night”
Tyra Banks from “America’s Next Top Model”
“Shake Ya Body”
Kelly Osbourne from “The Osbournes”
Tila Tequila from “A Shot At Love with Tila Tequila”
Paris Hilton from “The Simple Life,” “Paris Hilton’s My New BFF” and “The World According To Paris”
“Nothing In This World”
Brooke Hogan from “Hogan Knows Best” and “Brooke Knows Best”
“Hey Yo! (featuring Colby O’Donis)”
…and the worst.
Kim Zolciak from “Real Housewives of Atlanta”
“Tardy For The Party”
Heidi Montag from “The Hills”
Kim Kardashian from “Keeping Up with The Kardashians,” etc.
“Jam (Turn It Up)”
Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino from “Jersey Shore”
Countess Luann de Lesseps from “Real Housewives of New York”
“Money Can’t Buy You Class”
Kevin Federline from “Britney & Kevin: Chaotic” and “Celebrity Fit Club”
Ali Lohan from “Living Lohan”
“All The Way Around”
So, there you have a selection of some of the best and some of the worst songs from reality TV stars. This actually ties in a lot with the Friday Feature this week, which I am pretty excited to share with you all! I think it’ll be pretty fun, although I do have a pretty busy week ahead of me and am not sure how many looks I will be able to get done for the post. We’ll see how it goes down, though. Either way, I promise to get the post done to the best of my ability and I will make it is fun, interesting and entertaining for all of you! In the meantime, though, I wish you all a beautiful week ahead and a beautiful life!
