Whether you’re into rich, entitled families with relationship issues, wild party girls who don’t take life seriously, pageant girls and their overbearing mothers, or celebrities who are adventurous enough to spend time in the wilderness, there’s a reality show out there for everyone.
Some people have done well after reality TV. They’ve used the platform to solidify their brands and become actual celebrities. However, some people started to become delusional after appearing on a reality show. They didn’t know how to deal with the fleeting fame, took their “celebrity status” too far, or allowed other family issues to take over until they were too overwhelmed to truly focus on their careers. Some would say that appearing on reality television isn’t for everyone, since some people aren’t able to handle the scrutiny that comes with fame. Want to know what happened to some of the reality stars you used to watch regularly? Here are 12 celebs who lives were completely destroyed after reality TV.
12. Karlie Redd
Karlie Redd from Love and Hip Hop thought that being on the reality show would help her to get new opportunities in Hollywood. Redd was under the impression that her exposure on the show would be great for her career, but her behavior on the show actually blackballed her. When she auditioned for a Tyler Perry movie, she was told that the role was not open to reality show stars. Karlie also says that this is not the first time she’s been held back from acting gigs due to her time on Love and Hip Hop. Redd even says there have been times when she actually got the role she auditioned for, but once producers found out about her “past”, she was turned down. Looks like being a reality TV star doesn’t always have its perks.
