Bin Laden’s niece is getting set to star in her own reality series. No, I’m not kidding:
Osama bin Laden’s niece, an aspiring singer who posed for a sexy photo shoot in a men’s magazine last year, has signed up for a reality television show about her life and her as yet unfulfilled "quest for stardom."
Wafah Dufour Bin Ladin, whose mother was married to the al Qaeda leader’s half brother, was born in California but lived in Saudi Arabia from the age of three to 10.
"I understand that when people hear my last name, they have preconceived notions, but I was born an American and I love my country," Dufour said in a statement from ReganMedia announcing the deal to develop a reality TV series.
Dufour has dropped the "Bin Ladin" — a different spelling of the Arabic name from that used by Osama bin Laden — and now goes by the name Wafah Dufour.
Yeah, dropping "Bin Ladin" as a last name. Good career move.
