Monday Morning Pet Peeve : Reality TV
Today's pet peeve is dedicated to Reality TV. I admit, when first season of The Real World (circa 1992) was, I watched religiously, and even to this day I do watch a little but it's confined to "Survivorman" and "Man vs. Wild" and other A&E shows. The Reality TV I'm talking about are the "Love" (ie. "Rock of Love", "Flavor of Love" , "I Love NY", "Bachelor" etc etc), shows like "Keeping up with the Kardashians", whatever show's Paris and Nicole are on, ect ect.... Shows that I feel add absolutely nothing of value to society. At least with "Survivorman" and "Man vs. Wild" you learn something, like urine is 80% water and you can drink it if your stuck in the desert. Paris probably couldn't spell "pee-pee"!
I guess the thing that really pisses me off is when Reality "Stars" think they are actual stars!!! Or more importantly that they have "TALENT!". They begin to host parties and masquerade around Hollywood like they did something worthy of praise!
I understand why TV execs make Reality TV. They are popular, people can't seem to get enough of it, and they are EXREMELY inexpensive to produce. But, we need to step back and see the distruction that Reality TV is doing to our society. You have women doing appaling things and degrading themselves to be with Flavor Flav, a fricken California Raisin!!! What the F*ck? What is this teaching our young daughters, that you should sell yourself and your self-respect to make out with quite possibly the ugliest person since Tyrone Hill (see picture).
And for what?? A shot at becoming a celbrity or extending your 15 mintues of fame like that jackass "Joe 'The Plumber'". How about you try to develope some TALENT!!!! Just a thought......
