Ricky Nixon – a new reality star?
If ever a scandal cried out for that tired old -gate suffix, it was the palaver around the then AFL player manager Ricky Nixon. He has been out of the news recently, but the 2012 football season is already upon us and journos trawling for forty-related gossip can rely on him for column inches. It seems he has his sights set on his own reality show, if The Age‘s Postcode 3000 column is on the money. Perhaps he sees himself in the Probst role of a rebooted local Survivor, or maybe he thinks that in the hands of some skilful editors his daily life could become must-see TV. Carbone reports that, as yet, no network has signed on to this project, so it could be that we don’t really have (Ricky) Nixon to kick around anymore.
