12 Celebrities Who Destroyed Their Career Thanks To Reality TV

Reality television has a knack for turning the ordinary into the extraordinary and launching careers faster than a rocket. However, for some celebrities, stepping into the reality TV arena became more like a landmine, exploding their careers instead of propelling them forward. These 12 individuals, once at the top of their game, found themselves caught in the whirlwind of reality TV, and unfortunately, it became the catalyst for their downfall.

1.Kelly Price

Known for her powerhouse vocals and soulful ballads, Kelly Price’s career soared in the R&B realm. However, her appearance on “R&B Divas: Los Angeles” stirred controversy and public backlash due to on-screen conflicts, leading to a tarnished image that impacted her music career negatively.

2.Omarosa Manigault 

Omarosa Manigault rose to prominence as a standout contestant on Donald Trump’s reality show, “The Apprentice,” showcasing her competitive nature and confrontational style. Her association with Trump extended beyond the show as she took on roles within his administration, notably as the Director of Communications for the Office of Public Liaison. However, her tenure was marked by controversy, characterized by internal conflicts and reports of discord within the administration. Omarosa’s departure from the White House was tumultuous. Her fallout with Trump was highly publicized, leading to public exchanges and legal disputes, ultimately solidifying her polarizing public image, where her fame and notoriety became intricately linked to her association with Trump.


Initially a rap sensation, Tyga ventured into reality TV via “Kingin’ with Tyga.” His highly publicized relationship with the youngest Kardashian, who was underage when they started dating, drew immense attention during his appearances on “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.” The legal and ethical implications surrounding their relationship sparked controversy, tarnishing Tyga’s image and derailing his musical career.

4.Heidi Montag

Heidi Montag gained widespread recognition through her involvement in the reality TV show “The Hills,” where her friendship and subsequent falling out with Lauren Conrad became a central storyline.

The fallout with Conrad significantly impacted Montag’s public image and career trajectory. Despite her appearances on subsequent reality shows, none matched the fervor or popularity of her time on “The Hills.” The allure of her dynamic with Conrad seemed unmatched, casting a shadow over her subsequent television endeavors and leaving a lasting impact on her entertainment career.
