One of the more successful crossover music career efforts comes from Housewives of Atlanta blonde Kim Zolciak, who, with Kandi Burruss’ Grammy-winning songwriting skills, had an iTunes chart-topper with “Tardy for the Party.” The dance tune is catchy, so it was destined to be a success.

Housewives of Atlanta cast member and former Miss USA Kenya Moore is the newbie on the Bravo network show, kicking up all kinds of dust with the other women. In an altercation with fellow cast member Porsha, Moore wanted to prove that she was so *snap* on point as a 40-something woman, she shouted “I’m ‘Gone with the Wind’ fabulous!” and proceeded to twirl to show her divaliciousness. And naturally, it’s now a single on iTunes. Now twirl, twirl, twirl, twirl! WATCH MUSIC VIDEO HERE
Kim Kardashian tried her hand at a musical debut with mega-producer The-Dream’s coaxing and production. Since many can’t wrap their minds around why she’s famous, her team thought maybe Kim could do something talent-worthy, and the end result is “Jam (Turn It Up).” The song was swiftly swept under the rug soon after, but we’ve revived it here for your viewing and listening pleasure.

MTV’s The Hills star Heidi Montag pounced on aspirations in pop music with this song “Higher” and an album called Superficial. The show focused on privileged 20-somethings. Along with desire, she had the means to begin a pop music career, and why not? This song a Timbaland-type beat, beach frolicking, and dramatic hand movements…a.k.a. the makings of a pop hit.
Speaking of MTV shows, any Teen Mom fans in the house? Did you know Farrah released an album (yes an entire album!?) on iTunes called My Teenage Dream Ended. Track titles include, “After Prom,” “Caught in the Act,” “Without This Ring,” and “Unplanned Parenthood.” Can’t make this up. She says the song is about digging down and finding the inner strength after becoming a young mother and losing her daughter’s father. You would think the tune would sound like a heartfelt ballad, but it’s really a hot, auto tuned, blathering mess. Press play if you dare.NUMBER 5: Laurieann Gibson
