Lara Bingle returning to her old roots after wrapping up reality show
Melbourne, May 29 (ANI): Lara Bingle will soon be leaving the multi-million dollar Bondi apartment - which provides the major backdrop for the star's upcoming self-titled reality show - to return to her old Darling Point flat.
The show titled 'Being Lara Bingle' and dubbed an inside look at the 'real' person behind the famous swimsuit model visage, has already hit a minor snag when it was revealed this week that Bingle's Bondi apartment is purely for show.
The former fiancee of Michael Clarke is currently living in an 8 million-dollar beachfront, four-bedroom mega-pad on posh Knotts Ave but will soon hand back the keys to the luxury abode being rented by the program's production company Eye Works for about 4500 dollars per week, real estate sources have said.
A rep for Network Ten defended the decision to present the plush pad as Bingle's regular digs in the upcoming series Being Lara Bingle, saying it was simply easier to shoot in.
Previously the former swimwear model resided in a pokey, one-bedroom Darling Point flat worth one-tenth the value of the Bondi penthouse.
"The (penthouse) makes for a better backing. It's easier to film in and the views are stunning," the Daily Telegraph quoted a network source as saying.
It's also understood the producer opted for a Bondi location "to make the show more appealing to overseas TV buyers".
Asked if it will be disclosed in the reality series that the property is purely for show, the rep said: "It's brushed over".
Meanwhile Channel Ten has decided to move her upcoming reality series from its planned Thursday time slot to a beefed up time of Tuesday 8pm - going up against Nine's ratings powerhouse The Big Bang Theory and Seven's US drama Once Upon A Time.
The decision, made within Ten headquarters, comes on the back of a series of positive test screenings as well as a huge wave of public interest in the show which will launch on June 12.
"We are getting dozens of calls about this show every day," said one Ten staffer, who confirmed advertising support for the show is already 'very encouraging'. (ANI)
