Lara Bingle’s New Reality Show To Start June 7 on TEN


Well the Lara Bingle reality show, Being Lara Bingle, will be on screen sooner rather then later with news that the show will start on Network Ten on June 7 at 8pm.

The Network clearly thinks the show is going to be interesting enough to attract the ratings in this prime time spot. Got to be honest the promos are not making me that excited.

She is still filming the show and is currently in the US and then will  be heading to India where apparently she is still a big drawcard because of her previous relationship with cricketer Michael Clark.

I wonder if they are hoping to try and get in the same room as his new wife Kylie Boldy? That would add a much needed plot line to the show.

Currently the plot lines appear to include:

  • The nude photo scandal;
  • Her appearances at Fashion Week; and
  • The surprise of Michael Clark’s wedding.

One plot line we won’t be seeing is her new relationship with fashion designer, Gareth Moody.

She told the Daily Telegraph:

On her relationship with Sydney fashion designer Gareth Moody – who she was snapped snogging at the weekend – she seemed to perk up.

“As weird as it sounds, I want to keep it sacred,” she said, microphone strapped to her back.

“I don’t think he will be part of the show. I don’t want to jinx anything. I respect him a lot and he’s got his own thing going on.”

Seriously it is ridiculous that a reality show about your life can have a significant part just removed out of it. Maybe she needs to look at Bethenny Frankel who has a great reality TV show, and it works because she puts her whole life on screen. Also Bethenny now would be the most successful reality TV star worldwide, with her range of Skinny Girl products.

For Lara’s show to work people have to think they are seeing the real her, viewers can sniff inauthenticity a mile away.

Being Lara Bingle commences on TEN on June 7 at 8pm.

I’m looking forward to Lara’s ‘Skanky Girl’ product range, but definitely not this show.

Lara who? Yawn

Based on some cunning google detective work Raver I now have the answer why she’s keeping her new bloke under wraps and off our screens:

Though apparently this bloke’s the gun if you need some piston ring packing.

I heard recently that the ‘B O P Girl’ song performed by Pat Wilson (formerley married to Ross Wilson of Daddy Cool and Mondo Rock fame) was about masturbation!

Interesting song choice!

Lara has a new bloke every other month. Can’t keep up. They said the show need 1 million viewers to be considered good rating. Fat chance I say. Masterchef just touch and go at 1 million viewers mark.

@Sioux Denim – well, God knows this show will be a complete wankfest, so appropriate.

Love it Mia!

As funny as that would be Sioux, you are confusing that song with She Bop by Cyndi Lauper.
I won’t be even watching this for shits and giggles to see how bad it is. I can barely sit through the 10 second promos Ten are showing.
Who in gods name is Bethenny Frankel?

Oh bugger – I would have liked it to be true – haha!

I can’t for the life of me work out who would be watching this show. Lara who, precisely!

I will watch. While she was with Michael Clarke I could never stand her but since that whole circus blew up Ive been slightly intrigued. I dont buy that bullshit nude photo scandal for a second, but I do follow her on twitter and she does seem to be a busy bee. As bad as it sounds, kill me I know, that she doesn’t play the dead dad card every episode. It seems to be the first thing she talks about in her interviews. (I’m sure ill go to hell for that).

I think ‘Being Lara Bingle’ will be as dumb and boring as being Lara Bingle!

14 brain dead dave { 05.29.12 at 12:18 am }

It doesn’t sound as intriguing as “Being $chappelle Corby” but I’ll probably watch.

15 Georgie { 05.29.12 at 12:23 am }

Filming ‘Being Lara Bingle’ won’t take long.

Georgie – a first review by the SMH http://www.smh.com.au/entertainment/tv-and-radio/review-being-lara-bingle-20120528-1zeyl.html He says it is better than he expected, but does query whether there are 10 eps in it.

BDD – Great minds… I was just thinking yesterday that a Schapelle Corby and Mercedes Corby reality show could be very interesting indeed.

17 smauge { 05.29.12 at 7:56 am }

Now, THAT I’d watch!

Can’t get any more “real” than producers renting the apartment she “lives in” during production. This show has crap written all over it…
