RIP! Former reality TV stars Jon Gosselin, Omarosa, Tila Tequila, Big Ang, and Ronnie Ortiz-Magro gathered together on Tuesday, March 31, to say goodbye to reality TV with a mock funeral.
Officiated by Omarosa, who was dressed as a reverend, the “Fake Reality” funeral was in honor of AOL’s new show Connected, which focuses on the lives of six prominent people, including Susan Sarandon, comic Derek Gaines, and tech executives Eli and Ido Bendet-Taicher, and aims to document “real life” as one of the “most intimate series ever.”
The Times Square event, which was dubbed as “putting the nail in the coffin of fake reality TV,” also reunited Gosselin with his infamous Ed Hardy shirts. The Jon & Kate Plus Eight alum tossed one of the designer’s graphic shirts into a casket, while Jersey Shore alum Ronnie Ortiz-Magro parted ways with the phrase “Gym, Tan, Laundry” by throwing laundry detergent into the casket as well.
Connected is produced by Oscar-nominated director Morgan Spurlock.
