I’m a little late on this, but I recently read a pretty interesting article about the plight of reality TV “stars,” once they’ve finished the talk show circuit. I’d heard about these lecture and party circuits, but was always skeptical. I mean, who wants to see Joe Whomever from some show give a speech? Apparently, the answer involves enough people that these less-than-iconic everymen/women are able to make comfortable livings merely by showing up for appointments. A little notoriety – and in many cases, I mean very little – still seems to go a long way.
