The rumor mill went into high gear a couple days ago after Lindsay Lohan and Ryan Seacrest were spotted out together at a late night dinner, but it’s not what everybody thought.
The couple were not a couple, per se – they were discussing buisness – a new reality show.
The day after the rumor mill had a chance to churn out sufficient speculation, mis-informing tens of thousands (maybe millions) of wag-hungry people, Seacrest updated his Twitter page with the real story:
“Met with Lindsay last night about a show idea I have for her, it helps people and gives others a second shot!”
“Still putting it all together.”
Then Lindsay tweeted:
“Working on a really great project for television — I am excited!
Something meaningful like Extreme Home Makeover on ABC. :)”
…which immediately sent the rumor mill spinning in a whole new direction, but that’s not the point here.
My question is somewhat naive but still plausable – Why is it that some celebrities are not taking more initiative in their careers by getting themselves a video camera and filming their own lives, the was anyone with a webcam has been able to do lifecasting for the past 2-3 years already?
Here’s my reality show idea:
Lindsay starts out by either getting a video camera herself, or hiring someone to follow her around for a day, or a week, whatever, and streams it live on a site like Justin.tv, Ustream.tv or Stickam.com.
She (or any celeb for that matter) could give it a try to see the response and find out if there’s enough publiv interest to get advertisers and sponsors on board. She becomes the executive producer, writer, star of the show and has complete control over the content, and even interacts with her viewers in the text chats attached on the show’s page.
Advertisers, sponsors and fans would be so excited they’d be peeing their pants to get involved.
So what do you think – wouldn’t you like to see and experience a celebrity’s life virtually through their own eyes? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
