Want to Buy Lance Bass's Trash?

Lifetime to anoint the former ‘N Sync member as the celebrity yard sale queen?

Deadline reports that Lifetime is on the cusp of picking up Celebrity Sellouts, a reality series created by Lance Bass that is described as “MTV’s Cribs meets Pawn Stars.”

According to reports, it will follow A-list (or maybe C-list?) celebrities in their homes as they part with stuff they don't want: "memorabilia, costumes, furniture and tchotchkes, all of which will be auctioned off for charity, with the celebs trying to hit a goal dollar amount." 

Does this mean people like Cher, who was recently chastised for auctioning the key to the city of Adelaide, Australia, on eBay, will have a way to launder the goods they deem no longer good? It used to be megastars would auction off their goodies in big, high-profile events. World tours of Elton John's costumes and highflying productions centered around Liz Taylor's baubles. But maybe this will mean a glut of keepsakes of a different ilk. While it was sad enough to see washed up celebs go and prostrate themselves to Donald Trump to get a new job (sorry, but Celebrity Apprentice is a bit depressing when you rethink what's happening), this seems like it could turn into a new low. As well as EXTREMELY watchable TV—like Storage Wars with more cachet to cash in on.
