Further proof that there’s no such thing as bad publicity: Jonathan Baker and Victoria Fuller, the couple you loved to hate on the last season of The Amazing Race, have leveraged their on-camera shoving match into several forthcoming projects, including a VH1 reality show pilot and a potential show on Sirius satellite radio. (Not to mention Fuller’s upcoming Playboy spread.)

Fuller tells the New York Daily News that she and Baker have taped a demo for the radio show and started filming this week on the VH1 show, which will examine how the pair copes with newfound fame. She says she and Baker have largely turned around the negative impression of them created by Amazing Race, thanks to some savvy PR advice from, of all people, Omarosa Manigault-Stallworth. ”Her advice was when you do an interview come off humble and apologetic,” Fuller told the Daily News, ”and when you walk the red carpet, be a slut and a bitch.” She also promises that the reality show won’t be a whitewash. ”Is he pushing me? No. Will we be at each other’s throat to that degree? No. But we still will be bickering, we still will be fighting because that’s who we are.”
