Santino invites viewers to his house for a yard sale

You know you’re a reality star who’s show has ended and whose fame is fleeting if you’re inviting people to come to your house and buy your stuff.

And that’s exactly what Project Runway 2 star Santino Rice is doing, as Defamer noticed. Santino’s having a yard sale this weekend because he’s moving to a new home in the LA area–probably one that’s in a more high-traffic area so he’ll be sighted more often.

Santino lives at 609 N. Beachwood Drive in LA. The yard sale is both Saturday and Sunday, but no times are specified, which might not be the best idea, because without an actual start time to ignore, scary yard sale buyers may just start showing up now. Regardless, they’ll probably be beaten by scary reality TV fans, like the commenter on Santino’s blog who tells Santino, “now i’m definitely stalking you all weekend…or at least buying all of your belongings and selling them on ebay.”

The Sing-Off loses its star

Ben Folds

NBC's super-fun December a capella singing competition The Sing-Off is returning, but without its star judge, Ben Folds, and only as a two-hour special. Those are really depressing changes for a series that proved itself to be a super-fun show when it returned last December.
