Lance Bass Wants To Turn Celebrity Junk Into Reality-TV Gold

Having mastered the worlds of pop music and celebrity dancing, N’Sync alum Lance Bass is taking on a new challenge: producing a reality-television series.

At a recent reality-TV convention, the out entertainer was shopping a series based on Famous Yard Sale, his charity project that allows stars to auction off memorabilia and unwanted items for good causes.

With garage sales and appraisers it kind of sounds like Antiques Roadshow meets Clean House, but co-producer Liz Gately compares it to some other well-known projects:

“You get a little bit of Cribs, a little bit of the Barbara Walters aspect where the celebrity is walking down memory lane, and a little bit of Pawn Stars,” says Gateley. “It has big set-piece moments so it can definitely play on some of the broadcast networks. But it works equally well on cable.”

We hope the show gets picked up and becomes a big success. Otherwise Lance might be selling his stuff in a yard sale—and not for charity!

      It’s sad to see a has been getting desperate.

      I’d watch a quiz show named “Celebrity Junk”, if you catch my drift.

      No no. I think it’s a good idea.

      The last line of this story is a bit silly given Bass’ net worth is to be estimated at around $22 million.

      Oh, ok.

      I guess the checks are slowing down and he’s getting pretty desperate to stay in the limelight.

      @Timmmeeeyyy: It’s not silly at all once a person has gotten used to living a certain lifestyle and wants to maintain it. Nothing is cheap out here in LA, you pay out the ass to show that you have money.

      $22 mil is a lot everywhere else in the country, but here it’s chump change.

      I’ll watch that, hopefully it’s not on some random cable channel that I don’t get.

      How on earth could a mediocre back up dancer and singer from 10+ years ago have a $22M net worth? That must of come from a press release. If he had that kind of cash, he wouldn’t appear so desperate.

      Oh, ok.

      @TJ: Net worth =/= immediate funds. He very well could have a net worth of $22 million considering N-sync was huge for 5 minutes.

      Net worth really doesn’t take into account things like cars depreciating in value, the fact that you won’t get the same return on furniture, and that you probably won’t get more for your house than you paid for it.

      If he was smart he would’ve invested it and made it work for him. But it looks like he wanted to keep being a celebrity after his 5 minutes were up so he’s been squandering it. I guess he thinks he can hit the lottery twice…

      This sounds like a stretch for him. If he can sing then why doesn’t he continue his musical career singing in lounges, on cruise ships, Las Vegas, etc.

      @Oh, ok.: That’s from the celebrity net worth website, right? Their numbers are not reliable at all. They admit themselves that all they have to work with is the same public information anyone else can access, and they don’t know or subtract money the celebrity has spent, paid in taxes and lost on bad investments. If Lance has lost most of his money he would still look like a millionaire on that website.
