Poll question: Wafah Dufour's new reality show


http://www.thesuperficial.com/archives/2006/03/10/bin_l...

In the continuing pursuit to give every single person a reality show, Wafah Dufour - Osama bin Laden's niece, who wisely dropped the Bin Laden part of her name - has inked a deal for cameras to document her "quest for stardom".

I understand that when people hear my last name, they have preconceived notions, but I was born an American and I love my country, Dufour said in a statement from ReganMedia announcing the deal to develop a reality TV series.

Her story will bridge the gap that people feel exists between the cultures she has lived in, ReganMedia President Judith Regan said.

It's an odd tug-of-war Dufour is undertaking: simultaneously distancing herself from her much-bearded terrorist uncle, while at the same time cashing in on the fact that she shares his criminal mastermind blood. Then again, one thing television lacks is a show about an unknown (actress, designer, singer, model, inventor, juggler, or famous person) winning a competition, their reward a place in the public consciousness for 3-5 months.

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

1. She looks like every Melanie- or Joan Baez-wannabee who ever sat on the
floor in an airport in the 70s.

No offense meant at all -- that's how she looks to me.

Good luck to her.
