Changing Channels

There really is no such thing as an overnight success. Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Williams got a healthy dose of that lesson recently when she went in the booth on air to lay down "Perfectly Worthless." The song lyrically fits her divorce drama, and could have catapulted her to enough musical fame to match her reality TV popularity, but the song's producer has told her that it's not a good fit for her vocally, and already has sold the song to Syleena Johnson. Tough love. Will she keep pursuing her music career after that setback? Time will tell. Meanwhile, read on to see how more reality show stars have waded in the musical talent pool.
