7 Reality Stars Desperate For A Comeback
Fame is a tricky thing because, while it comes on quickly, it fades twice as fast. This is especially true when it comes to reality TV where there’s a revolving door of cast members to make each new season better than the last. It’s pretty obvious reality TV isn’t a long-term job, but many celebrities use it as a launching pad to kick start their career. Sometimes it works, but a lot of the time it doesn’t — and once the spotlight fades, it’s tough to get back. These stars will do anything to get another 15 minutes of fame, so let’s take a look at 7 reality stars who are desperate for a comeback!
7. Gretchen Rossi
Gretchen Rossi first rose to fame on The Real Housewives of Orange County. She appeared on the show from season 4 to season 8, but was fired after her storyline began to fall flat. She and fiance Slade Smiley did their best to remain relevant after being laid off by Bravo and even tried to save face by claiming they left on their own accord to pursue other opportunities, but it’s been pretty much silence from them ever since. Gretchen pops up in the media every now and again to give interviews on her former cast mates or her relationship status, and even tried to make a comeback on the show by making a guest appearance to stir up drama. Sadly, her attempts to wiggle back into the Real Housewives fame haven’t worked.
6. Heidi and Spencer Pratt
These two were deemed reality TV villains after starring on five seasons of The Hills. Heidi was brought onto the Laguna Beach spin-off as one of the main cast members in season 1, and when she met Spencer Pratt in season 2, they became inseparable. Spencer was ruthlessly mean to Heidi’s best friend and star of the show, Lauren Conrad, and he’s made a point of keeping up with his evil persona by continuously slamming Conrad in the media. When The Hills came to an end in 2010, all the cast members went off to live their lives off-screen, but Heidi and Spencer continued to grasp at fame by selling stories, going on any reality show that would have them like I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! and Celebrity Big Brother, but they were never able to reinvent the fame they once had as MTV stars. Let’s face it, these two are irrelevant without The Hills, but we have a feeling they’ll continue to pop up in the media to make some money off a story any chance they get!
