It was surprising to see an article in the latest Good Weekend about Lara Bingle. A profile in this magazine is normally quite indepth and covers more worthy people rather than just a celebrities.
The disappointing thing is there was not much new or revelationary in it, as Good Weekend journalists in the past were given time to do indepth profiles.
It was basically a puff piece that promoted her new lingerie range that is currently in the planning stages. This will assist her in achieving her aim ”to have depth and substance” as she told the journalis the time has come “to stand for something, in particular one thing”.
Basically she wants credibility.
It would have been more interesting if they had talked to more former managers than just Max Markson and they tried to find out what happened to make the friendship break down between Hermione Underwood who was also in the reality show Being Lara Bingle.

If you watched Being Lara Bingle you would have been slightly mystified about what she actually did.
Yes there was endorsements, some modelling jobs and appearances and clearly there is some serious bucks in doing all that as she has a six figure car which she is now selling.
Just goes to show Lara Bingle is indeed a brand.

Reality TV trend of 2012 is if you are from the Shire and on a reality TV show the chances are you will end up in court.
Today it was Lara Bingle’s turn to face charges for an incident where she hit a person on a motorbike whilst driving her car whilst unlicensed. She has been fined $3500, placed on a good behaviour bond and banned from driving for 12 months after pleading guilty to three driving offences
The SMH reports:
During a brief hearing, her lawyer told the court Bingle initially drove off in a panic but turned herself in to police the next morning.
Bingle avoided an 18-month jail sentence, but was placed on a good behaviour bond for that period.
The court heard Bingle had stopped driving after the accident, and was asked to backdate her suspension to include the time she had not been driving.
Magistrate Robert Williams refused the request, citing “at least” six speeding offences this year.
“Your driving record is not a good record,” he said.
Williams warned Bingle she would face jail if she was caught driving without a licence while on the good behaviour bond.
A fourth driving charge relating to the incident was dismissed.
Seriously she needs to grow up.

If you had told me that Lara Bingle would have been the character I had liked best from her reality show Being Lara Bingle at the start of the season I would have been very surprised.
Her two main supporting cast mates were pretty unpalatable by the end. Her brother Josh Bingle had few redeeming features. He was thick “did you have a fire in the igloo” condescending to Lara but was happy to live off her largesse. He is no Khole Kardashian – when he mused that he did not know what he would do next, most viewers were hoping he would fade into obscurity.
Hermione Underwood who was her manager for the first part of the series appears to have little respect for her best friend talking down to her, again like Josh she appears to have forgotten the reason she has the lifestyle she has. Also Hermione talked about how smart and highly educated she was there was little sign of it. Oh and she is currently unemployed I suspect she will turn up working at a PR company soon.
It is unlikely there will be a season two as there just was not enough going on to keep it interesting, memo to producers – playing bingo is not a plot line….
Even though the ratings were good for a niche reality show, they were not good enough for a prime time free-to-air program.
The best bits were when she was hanging out with friends and family or actually working, though this did not occur very much. Also you can’t have a reality TV show on your life and not show your private life. Kanye West has no problem appearing on Keeping Up With The Kardashians, and he is a much bigger celebrity than Lara’s boyfriend Gareth Moody.
In the last episode Lara met with Peter Morrissey who was giving her some business advice, and hopefully she listened, however I would have thought her new management should be strategising on her behalf.
However one bit of advice she should have been given obviously was not. When she knew she was getting a reality show she should have had a product or merchandise with her name attached to it ready for when the show aired. It is no use sighing that she would like to have her own lingerie collection it should have been hanging on our shelves last month. You can’t buy that type of free advertising even a medium rating reality show gives you.
Put Lara in the Australian version of The Simple Life – I would definitely watch it.

Which was lower on the reality TV food chain The Shire or seeing Lara Bingle have a colonic enema on screen complete with a shot on the toilet?
The production company must be grappling for plot lines.
Tonight there was Lara Bingle naked again, surely there is a PETA campaign in her future, discussion about Lara Bingle’s body and Lara on a detox. One of the things I really like about Lara is that she likes to eat. In that way she is a positive role model to girls, however the same cannot be said about her driving record.
Mrs Bingle must be so proud to have both her children face court this year.
Joshua who is a tool was in court pleading guilty to an assault charge where he was put on an 18 month good behaviour bond, and it looked like he was loving the media attention this brought him. Enjoy it – as his allotted 15 minutes must be up soon.
He did not even apologise to his sister and continues to talk down to her, as does her alleged best friend Herminone, who had made Lara carry the box of detox goodies even though she probably paid for it.
Lara should remind both of them that they should treat her with more respect as they are currently living off her largesse.
