Just when I thought reality TV couldn’t get any crazier, I recently read about more crazy reality shows scheduled to launch this year.
Reality television has gotten out of control. On just about every network today there is at least one reality program. This reality TV thing really started booming after the launch of the Real Housewives of Orange County. After this launch, the housewives franchise started exploding. Although the early episodes of the Real Housewives of Orange County were pretty silly, they did not contain the three ’V’s” — vile, vulgarity and violence. Which is exactly what you will see when you watch this same show today. Instead of being about women trying to manage their families and business, it’s all about shouting matches, cat fights and a lot of cussing. I can’t believe how much this show has gone downhill.
Believe it or not, Orange County is not the worse of the real housewives franchise. I give this honor to the Real Housewives of Atlanta. Never in my life have I seen such vulgar language and ridiculous behavior from grown women. When you tune into this show you never know what you will hear or see. I saw an excerpt of a recent episode which involved the men on the show getting into an all out brawl. I mean this looked like a knock down drag out fight. Even some of the women got involved. This show has gone beyond ridiculous. I am sure that the people of Atlanta are ‘proud’ of this show. By now the rest of the country probably thinks that all women in Atlanta are low class, obnoxious and rude.
If this wasn’t enough, I recently read that another reality show based in Atlanta will launch sometime this year. This show is a spin-off of ‘Hollywood Exes”, which is a reality show made up of ex-wives of celebrities. The original show features the ex-wife of Will Smith and Eddie Murphy, and others. I have not gotten all the cast names of the new Atlanta spin-off, but I have read that it will feature the ex-wife of Usher, Tameka Raymond. I am hoping that this show will at least have some type of dignity and class, but sadly I don’t think it will. It looks like the city of Atlanta is becoming the capital of low class reality television.
The reality show L. A. Preachers that launched last year, is also ridiculous. As you have guessed, this show is about Los Angeles based preachers. In my opinion if you are a preacher you should carry yourself in such a way that the LORD would be proud. I cannot imagine that the LORD is proud of this mess.
