Reality Stars Real Fashion Lines

In the past five years I have had three babies and one thing that has really changed, besides developing constant bags and dark circles under my eyes, is my television viewing.  Countless up all nights with babies caused me to be glued to mindless, yet very entertaining programming.  I'm talking about reality T.V.  My DVR became filled with reality shows that I would watch at all hours of the night.   That is where my new favorite shows have come in.... TMZ, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and Orange County, Tori and Dean, Giuliana and Bill, Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency (which I think is canceled now) The Hills (also over) and Gossip Girl (which I know isn't a reality show but I'm still addicted!)    Have you all noticed all the fashion lines these reality stars are lending their names and their ideas to?  I've heard that some of these reality stars, mainly the Housewives, don't get paid much for their shows, so they use their celebrity to launch fashion lines then use the shows to plug those labels.  Reality show stars lending their name and then promoting their lines on their shows has become big business.  Here's a few that you've probably seen or heard of. 

The Real Housewives Franchise...where do I start?

Lisa Vanderpump's restaurants
 Gretchen Rossi's handbag, accessories and makeup line,  Gretchen Christine

Alexis Bellino, Alexis Couture 

Then the numerous other reality show stars...

Paper Crown by Lauren Conrad (I happen to really love this line!)

Whitney Port's Whitney Eve


Tory Spelling- Little Maven, InvenTori, countless books

Giuliana Rancic had plans to launch an affordable clothing line this month, but maybe because of her health, it has not yet launched.  Stay tuned...

So tell me.... will you or have you purchased anything from these lines?  If so, what did you think?


  1. Not going to lie, I love the LC line at Kohl's. I hadnt been in one in years and went looking for stuff for the boys one day and was shocked by how cute and affordable her designs were!

  2. I'm not a huge Lauren Conrad fan but I must admit I love her eye for fashion and her line is super cute and feminine! Great post, thanks for sharing all these :)

  3. I love all of the RH, so I've checked out Alexis' clothing line, but I'm not a huge fan of it. I like most of Adrienne's shoes, but I can't imagine paying $900 for a pair!
