Reality Stars Not Actually Stars: Nobody Attends Reality Rocks Expo

Vyxsin, Kent, The Amazing RaceThis weekend, the Los Angeles Convention Center played host to the Reality Rocks Expo, a sort of Comic-Con for reality TV fans. The convention promised intimate access to such luminaries as the goths with the pink hair from 'The Amazing Race' (Kent and Vyxsin), Judge Lynn Toler from 'Divorce Court,' and early 'American Idol' castoffs.

Though our friend Andy Dehnart at Reality Blurred reports that the staff projected an audience of 15,000 attendees, come convention weekend, nobody actually showed up. Seriously -- check out these photos of the event from B-Side blog, featuring crowds as large as 12 amassing to watch former 'Idol' finalist Andrew Garcia, empty autograph lines for 'Paranormal Files' hosts, and a 'Big Brother' panel with the same amount of panelists as audience members.

Christopher Knight and Adrianne CurryUntil 2008, Adrianne Curry and her husband, former 'Brady Bunch' star Christopher Knight, had spent almost their entire relationship in front of reality show cameras, first as their romance blossomed on 'The Surreal Life,' then as they romanced and battled their way to the altar and beyond in their own VH1 series 'My Fair Brady.'

But after the series ended, the couple decided to take themselves out of the reality spotlight. Knight hosted a game show on GSN and Curry popped up on a Smoking Gun talking head show, but the pair has more or less been off TV for over two years, mainly to see how well they get along when the cameras weren't in their faces.

Now, with her marriage still intact, Curry's ready to get back into the reality game. She and Knight will be appearing at the first-ever Reality Rocks Expo in Los Angeles on April 9 and April 10. The first winner of 'America's Next Top Model' has also been getting back in fighting shape and fielding offers for new shows. Oh, and in our wide-ranging and frank conversation about reality TV, she told me she wouldn't mind if a show like 'Dancing With the Stars' came knocking.
