The drama that is the life of Lara Bingle is about to become a real-life, televised soap opera.
The bikini model has signed a lucrative deal with Network Ten to star in her own primetime reality series, and says nothing will be off limits.

Speaking from Los Angeles, Bingle said she hoped the show - to be aired later this year - would give the public a glimpse of exactly who she is and what she does.

"I give my whole life away, I'm nervous as hell," she told The Sunday Telegraph.

"(My family) were a bit apprehensive at first. When you ask someone to be in your so-called reality show, it's a weird thing to ask. . .

"I've been through a lot with my family and they've been through a lot with me, and they support me in whatever I choose to do. Thankfully they're supporting me in this show.

"With my dad passing away it's just my mum, me and my brother, just the three of us and we're very close."

The 24-year-old said she hoped to dispel the perception of her in some circles as little more than a Sydney party girl.

"I think the last six to eight months have been the hardest period of my life to date, with things out there about my personal life and even my weight gain," she said.

"I'm not complaining but there has been so much scrutiny about what had gone on in my life and it has really taken its toll.

"I think this is the right time in my life for this kind of show and I can actually show the real me.

"Show people I can hold my own, and that I'm actually a very driven person."

Despite Ten's high hopes for the show, Bingle admitted she would not watch the series, Being Lara Bingle, herself.
