On April 9th and 10th, 2011, reality fans were able to meet and greet their favorite reality television stars at the Reality Rocks Expo, held at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
The highlight of the expo was the “Where Are They Now? Catching up with Reality TV Stars and Their Lives Today” panel, produced by The Conlin Company and moderated by Sheila Conlin. The panel included an eclectic group; Omarosa (The Apprentice), Chanel (Rob Dyrdek’s Fantasy Factory), Leonard Goodloe (Chef Academy), Suzanne Winn (Chef Academy), Erika Othen (True Beauty), and David Palmer (True Beauty).
Another great panel was “TV Dinners: How Television Changed the Culinary Industry”, moderated by Jeffrey Saad (Cooking Channel’s United Tastes of America). These panels were very well received and everyone had a blast doing them. We look forward to next year, where we hope even more fans attend!
