Breaking news: Kim Kardashian got married to NBA star Kris Humphries this weekend.
OK, so it’s not breaking news. I mean, how can you keep a secret about a reality TV star — Kim Kardashian is actually in at least two separate reality TV shows — who’s life is basically broadcast for public consumption?
Kim is single — season theme. Kim is living in New York City and dating — new reality TV show. Kim gets married — season finale. Kim and new husband — spinoff.
It’s a cash cow.
But I wonder if a show like this would fly in Hawaii.
It’s amazing to me that reality TV juggernauts — particularly Bravo’s “The Real Housewives” series — hasn’t scouted locations here. Hawaii has perfect scenery, a a colorful cultural landscape, and enough drama to last at least a few seasons.
But would it work?
Here are some of my ideas:
• Remember Brooke Lee, Miss Universe 1997? Ever read her tweets (@brooksuniverse)? You should. And you’ll know why she needs her own reality TV show.
• Co-host of MTV’s NextMovie Daily and Roosevelt High alum McKenna Maduli (@mckennalive) should move back to the Islands and just eat everything in sight. I’d watch that.
• I know a few single ladies whose lives would make for interesting prime-time TV, including a dietician who drinks two — two — 2-liter bottles of Diet Coke a day.
See? This could happen.
But would anyone watch?
