Reality TV, Enron, & the Real Estate Bubble

My favorite recent quote on the maybe-maybe-not real estate bubble goes to an L.A. Times Calendar columnist writing about the troubles with reality shows, and with The Bachelor contestants in particular:

Charlie has done some acting too, but his primary profession seems to be as a real estate investor. (For those of us who watch reality television during this bubble economy, “I am a real estate investor” is starting to sound a lot like “I work at Enron” must have sounded five years ago.)
