Reality shows seem to be the gateway to fame these days, especially if the public seems to like you. Looks like the way to enter into the world of celebrity in today’s world is to sign up for a reality show, make sure you’re interesting to watch, then show the world that you’ve actually got other talents besides being dramatic and crying in the confessional booth. Hey, it’s worked for some people. For example, Snooki and JWoww are now trusted advisers when it comes to relationships and parenting, and occasionally appear on comedian and author Steve Harvey’s talk show. The Braxton family’s reality show has brought more attention to all of the Braxton sisters (not just Toni) and served as a launching pad for Tamar, the youngest of the siblings, to revamp her music career.

While there can be long-term benefits to being a reality star long after the show is over, there are also people who sign up for these shows because they are trying to run from their past. Some figure that if they can gain the approval of the public, no one will find out just how dark and terrible they really are. However, this is also the age of extensively researching celebrities, and it’s usually only a matter of time before the dirt is exposed. Here are 12 reality television stars who have very trouble pasts.

1 Kim Zolciak-Biermann

Kim Zolciak-Biermann rose to fame as a cast member for The Real Housewives of Atlanta, and was widely known for her affair with a married man who went by the name “Big Papa.” She has since left her scandalous ways behind and married football player Kroy Biermann. There were also reports that, back in the day, Kim was a stripper at The Cheetah Club in Atlanta. She allegedly had the stage name Barbi, and according to “an insider,” she didn’t hold the job for long. Kim’s former rep stated that Zolciak-Biermann did work at Cheetah, but only as a cocktail waitress. Cheetah Club, however, declined to comment. Interesting. Zolciak-Biermann can currently be seen on Dancing With the Stars, but has to sit out until the finale performance after suffering a mini stroke.
