Discussion: Would You Do a Reality Show?

So, if any of you tuned into Bravo last night for their new show Blood, Sweat, and Heels, you undoubtedly saw me in a preview!
Several girls on the show are my colleagues and friends, namely Daisy Lewellyn (I covered her Brooklyn Brunch series which appeared on the show tonight here), Demetria Lucas aka A Belle in Brooklyn, and Geneva Thomas.
Many of you tweeted that you saw me on the show, and quite a few of you asked, “Why aren’t you on it?”

Well, first… I wasn’t asked! LOL. But really, I have my reservations. You never know how the editors might twist your words. You never know if your costars will be crazy or embarrass you! And you also never know if the show will help or hurt your career!

It definitely worked for Bethenny

I’ve been having this conversation with several people lately, however: Would you do a reality show? Of course, it can be a great look for one’s career! There are those success stories like Nene Leakes.

But then there are also the legions of “Where are they Now?” moments. Remember Tiffany Pollard from I Love New York?
I guess it’s just a risk you have to be ready to take!
I support my girls and wish them the absolute best with the show–and continued success. And who knows, maybe I’ll change my mind. But for now, I’d much rather keep it all to myself..and avoid the wrath and judgment of my parents, brutal internet commenters, and random strangers.

But that’s just me.
What about you? Would you do a reality show?
