Better Names For The Celebrity Yard Sale Reality Show

By Kelly Conaboy / June 12, 2012 - 9:30 am

Lance Bass is back in the biz, you guys! I hate to start your morning on such a high note that there is then no place else for the day to go so you have to go back to bed and wait for tomorrow, but SURPRISE! Lance Bass created a show for Lifetime, and now he’s back in the biz. Assuming he had been out of this biz since ‘N Sync, which may be incorrect. The show is like MTV’s Cribs meets Pawn Stars, or so I hear! From Deadline:

Created by Bass, Celebrity Sellouts is described as “MTV’s Cribs meets Pawn Stars.” It will follow A-list celebrities in their homes as they part with memorabilia, costumes, furniture and tchotchkes, all of which will be auctioned off for charity, with the celebs trying to hit a goal dollar amount. Bass, DiSanto, Gateley and Leftfield’s Brent Montgomery executive produce. Former ‘N Sync member Bass brought the idea to DiGa because of his relationship with former MTV topper DiSanto via the music channel and its Total Request Live program, which DiSanto co-created.

Oooh lala! Certainly only the biggest A-list celebrities will take part in sorting through their tchotchkes on Lifetime to hit a goal dollar amount, I’m sure. It all sounds perfect, except for the name, which is actually kind of perfect but I think we can make it MORE perfect. My suggestions:

  • Celebrity Garbage
  • Who’s Gonna Buy All This Celebrity Garbage?
  • They Touched It And Now It Is Mine
  • Anything That A Celebrity Has Or Had, I Want
  • I Got It From ______, IMDB Him
  • Don’t Touch It, It’s Going To Be Worth “A Lot Of Money” Someday
  • Garbage Auction For Charity

So glad to see Lance Bass is back in the biz. So glad to see all these MUCH better names for his TV show. Just so glad.
