Reality Stars Turned One-Hit-Wonders

Earlier this week, “Real Housewives of D.C” personality, Michaele Salahi released her first single “Bump It’ which sounds like a geriatric Ke$ha. But Salahi is not the only reality star to force her way into the music scene.

Another old person and “Real Housewife” Countess LuAnn de Lesseps released her second single (she had a first single?) “Chic C’est La Vie” where she sings about going to the club (despite the fact she looks like she’s pushing 50) and sings with a “French accent” for the chorus. This video really could have benefited from some airbrushing and auto-tune.

Heidi Montag released an entire album in 2010 that reportedly cost $2 million to record and was three years in the making that nearly bankrupted the reality star and then barely sold 1000 copies. Her first video “Black Out” looked like it was filmed with a flip cam and features Heidi talk-singing while wearing many different bathing suits and swimming in both pools and beaches.

Nicole Ritchie is not just a socialite and former frenemy of Paris Hilton. Back when Nicole was still doing the oversized glasses, super skinny, dating Brody Jenner bull sh-t she released a song called “Dandelion.” The song wasn’t that awful that anyone could truly make fun of it, but it wasn’t good enough to actually listen to, so everyone kind of forgot about it shortly after and then she started dating that Good Charlotte guy and became all domestic and boring.

During Cycle 2 of America’s Next Top Model, Tyra Banks released a single and video, “Shake Ya Body.” Watching the video, at first glance one might think “Who is this tranny impersonating Beyonce?” Not surprisingly, the song was a failure.

Kim Kardashian released a single in March of this year called “Jam (Turn It Up) and the only compliment I can give it is that it sounds better than Rebecca Blacks “Friday.” She even filmed a music video with Hype Williams but never released it? Really expensive home video I guess?
