Over before it began. Or not

Compare and contrast…

From News Limited’s Confidential team two months ago: “Lara Bingle’s reality career may be over before it’s even begun. A source says Bingle’s show is unlikely to be picked up because the model wasn’t prepared to let the cameras get a “warts-and-all” glimpse into her day-to-day life.”

From News Limited today: “The drama that is the life of Lara Bingle is about to become a real-life, televised soap opera. The bikini model has signed a lucrative deal with Network Ten to star in her own primetime reality series, and says nothing will be off limits.”

Still, fans of the reality genre have double the reason to rejoice today. Socialite Brynne Edelstein is reportedly the subject of a similar project with the Seven Network.

Truly 2012 is set to be a golden year for television.
