Farrah Abraham & 3 Other D-Listers No One Wants to See on Reality TV

The Teen Mom star shopped around a "docu-soap" about chasing her dreams -- and not a single network bought it

Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham was overexposed before she decided to market a sex tape. We have now, quite literally, seen more of her than we ever needed to see. So you'll forgive us for not shedding any tears over the death of her reality show, Finding Farrah.

Finding Farrah -- and could there be a pornier title? -- was supposed to be a "docu-soap" about Farrah achieving her dreams. Given what the 22-year-old single mom has been up to lately -- a rehab stint, that pornographic video, and most recently, a photo shoot for a corpse fetish magazine -- that premise is looking a little flimsy. (Unless she always dreamed of posing in a bikini while holding a cadaver. Seriously, she did this!) Fortunately, the networks agreed with us.

"The consensus was they didn’t feel Farrah could carry her own show," an insider told RadarOnline. "Needless to say, you will not be seeing the project Finding Farrah anytime soon.”

We hope Farrah uses this opportunity to get her life together off camera (although she already has an offer for a sex tape sequel, so who knows). Farrah is one of many headline-grabbers who has tried, and failed, to channel their notoriety into reality stardom. (Though for her, at least, there's always Teen Mom.) Below, three other D-listers whose misguided reality shows never got off the ground.

Levi Johnston

Bristol Palin's ex-fiance ran for mayor of Wasilla to provide material his proposed 2010 reality show Loving Levi. After months of filming, Johnston called off his disastrous political campaign and killed the show.

Courtney Stodden

Doug Hutchinson's teenage bride seems like she was made for reality TV. But when she and Doug couldn't get a buyer for their show, they put an episode on YouTube -- and revealed that they're actually the most boring people alive. (Watch below.)


Nadya "Octomom" Suleman

Suleman's reality show actually did get picked up (overseas, not in the U.S.) in 2009. The project was called off when attorney Gloria Allred took legal action to prevent the exploitation of Suleman's children. Suleman made another bid for her own reality show in 2011 (see the preview below), before discovering the lucrative world of adult film.
