Reality shows are the kiss of death
Trying to land a reality show appears to be the latest, hottest trend. Many folks think it’s the key to overnight fame and riches, and some people are willing to do almost anything for it. (Remember balloon boy) But as I look around, for many who go that route, it seems like it may bring more grief. Right now, Storage Wars and Pawn Stars are both involved in multi-million dollar law suits.
It’s not only law suits plagueing people associated with these shows. Many of the show’s stars have had trouble with public sex tapes, arrests, tax trouble and other problems. It seems like more and more the payoff for a reality show is jail or rehab.
I think I will start a reality show for my cat. Viewers can tune in week after week to watch him eat, walk around and mostly sleep. At least he won’t end up in jail or in a sex tape. (he’s fixed) I think it would be more riveting than Honey Boo Boo.
