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.

Since he’s been banned from being a player manager anymore, he’s got to try something.Lock up your daughters.

@BDD Perhaps having him on TV will perform some sort of public service?

Nixon’s Nubiles has a catchy ring to it.

@Georgie That certainly works! I’m guessing his new fiancee will hope that his dalliances with nubiles (apart from herself, of course) are behind him…

He has a book coming out soon. That should explain this sudden reappearance in the rumour mill.

@smauge Oh, JOY!

Ricky is coming!
He is about to sign a contract with the Reject Shop for his new (or should we say ‘retro’) underwear line.
The initial contract with the 2$ Shop fell through as the store refused to trade any items cheaper than 2$.
Let’s hope the stuff will be on the shelves before Father’s day.

Channel 10 announced that Ricky will be hosting the ‘Biggest Loser’ spin off ‘An even bigger loser’ that will have contestants try to stuff up their lives in the biggest possible way. Could be interesting viewing.

Yet another person who should just go away

I wonder if Kim Duthie will now announce that she too will have her own show.

He is one of the vilest and ugliest men I have ever seen in my life. What is it about these ex footy people that people are drawn to?
