Billionaire Heiress Tamara Ecclestone To Make Us Jealous With New Reality Show

TamaraEcclestone091211.jpgIf your little sister buys the most expensive home in America and then has an insanely extravagant wedding - complete with a Black Eyed Peas performance - you'd probably want to steal the spotlight back too. And that's just what Tamara Ecclestone is doing!

The eldest daugther of Formula 1 billionaire Bernie Ecclestone and Croatian model Slavica is now starring in her own reality show - and shopping for a home as over-the-top as Petra Eccelstone's recently acquired (and paid for in cash!) $85 million Spelling mansion.

Tamara Ecclestone: Billion Dollar Girl will premiere November 4 in the U.K., and she's been in talks with major Hollywood studios to promote it in the U.S.

She should have no problem with that! Not only does she have Hollywood practically salivating over her no-holds-barred lifestyle, she's spending over $1.5 million on Amazonian rock crystal to build a luxurious bathtub in her London home.

Tamara confirmed that the price tag is no rumor, telling the U.K.'s Daily Mail:

    "No, it’s completely true. They’ve gone to find this crystal which will be turned into my bathtub. It’s costing £1 million because I’ve got to reinforce the floor and I’ve had to pay for everyone’s travel and the hauling back and polishing of the crystal. But I spend a lot of time in the bath so it’s worth it."

Ironically, this is a girl who claims she was brought up grounded, saying her father raised Tamara and Petra to "appreciate money and not to take it for granted."

We would appreciate being able to buy a $1 million bathtub too. This is so a reality show we're watching if it comes to America - Tamara has Hollywood written all over her already!

Production company TwoFour followed Tamara around for six months for her upcoming reality show. Producer Melaine Leach told the Daily Mail:

    "She is someone who is so different from what you expect. People have a certain expectation of what Tamara is like and, of course, she lives in a different world. The first show has her taking her five dogs to the Harrods day spa. It costs hundreds of pounds and the dogs are getting their nails painted pink. But there is another side of Tamara that is deadly serious and very ambitious. We have been taking meetings with some of the biggest people in Hollywood and I have never seen such a reaction. Tamara has something that people just relate to."

And Tamara has been reiterating that despite the money, she's a normal 27-year-old. She says:

    "I have a strong built-in b-s detector. I know who my real friends are and I like to think I’ve not become cynical. Of course, some people want to be my friend because of the money. But the people I have around me are a tight-knit group. I desperately want to have a career. I feel I have something to prove. I want to accomplish something on my own and build my own business."

Can't wait to see what Tamara has in store for us!
