Reality Queen! (2019)

Inspired by today’s obsession with reality TV and social media stars, writer-director Steven Jay Bernheim’s clever mockumentary fixes on a Paris Hilton-esque heiress named London (Julia Faye West) who is struggling to regain her past fame in the wake of three sisters called The Kims — think Kardashians.

London has it all — product endorsements, talent managers, pet psychics, private jets, fashion shows, yachts, celebrity friends, the smallest chihuahua ever — and she eventually regains her fame. But are we the ones paying for it?

This movie has plenty of people in it that know all about being a celebrity. Denise Richards is top featured and you’ll remember her from being a Bond girl, as well as appearing in Starship Troopers, Wild Things, Drop Dead Gorgeous and Valentine. Then there’s Mike Tyson, who is one of the most recognizable people born in the modern era, playing himself.

Charles Fleisher — yep, the voice of Roger Rabbit — plays a talk show host and John Witherspoon — in his last role — plays Joe the Plumber.

Steven Jay Bernheim has produced plenty of projects — the Ice-T movie Gangland for one — but this is his first directorial effort. My favorite IMDB credit is that he played himself on The Dr. Phil Show in an episode all about gold-digging secrets.

Loren Lester (the voice of Nightwing in the Batman cartoons, as well as Fritz Hansel in Rock ‘n Roll High School) also is in this. I love looking up people to see what roles they’ve played and then realizing just how many things I’ve seen or heard them in.

You can visit the official site and Facebook page for more information. Reality Queen! will be available on demand and on DVD, as well as in select theaters across America starting January 10.
