Toni Ferrari performs on reality TV CD, says she wants “to be known as” an actress.
Paradise Hotel‘s Toni Ferrari promised to go away, but alas, she’s still around. Now she’s talking to TV Guide about her role performing on the new holiday CD produced by the reality TV sewer known as The Fishbowl. Holiday in the Fishbowl: Performed by the Reality TV Singers. So why is Toni singing, along with other unlikely reality TV singers such as Survivor Amazon‘s Rob Cesternino? Toni says, “it’s just addictively fun. I got to play with other reality stars and watch my little sister [fast friend McKibbin] singing her heart out.” Despite her continued reality TV presence–she says that “My bags are packed and the car is running” in the event The Surreal Life producers call–she still has no self-awareness and says that her real “career aspiration is to be known as one of the good character actresses of our generation, not a reality star!”
