Despite having twice now announced that she doesn't want to be seen as trading on the name of her uncle Osama, Wafah Dafur Bin Laden's reality TV show seems to be based on little more than, erm, her being a Bin Laden:

"I understand that when people hear my last name, they have preconceived notions, but I was born an American and I love my country," Dufour said in a statement from ReganMedia announcing the deal to develop a reality TV series.

Don't run away with the idea this is all about some edgy publicity based on terrorist connections. Oh, no, it's an attempt to heal the world:

"Her story will bridge the gap that people feel exists between the cultures she has lived in," ReganMedia President Judith Regan said.

"She is also a young woman who falls in love, has her heart broken, worries about her looks, doesn't always listen to her mother, and hasn't spoken to her father in years," Regan said.

This is, of course, another attempt to leverage a musical career out of the connections with ole' wonky kidneys. Sitting in her pants in GQ did nothing for that, so we hope the reality series is the last desperate attempt.
