    The People Who Produce Reality TV and Everything Else That’s In Your Face

     

    There are thousands and thousands of people who are desperate to be celebrities. They’re aching to get their chance in the spotlight, their “fifteen minutes of fame” like Andy Warhol stated. For what? Money? Happiness? Lasting fame? Usually they get none of the above. But still more reality “wannabes” keep coming.

    Women with no particular talent (they can’t sing, dance or act) but with entitled attitudes and loud mouths are becoming media darlings. Young girls often look up to them, wanting to emulate their look and oftentimes buying into the “I’m so fabulous with my Botox and Bentley” lifestyle. It’s heartbreaking to see more and more girls adopt this fame-seeking personality.

    When and why did this happen?

    Remember when bands and recording artists were signed because they could actually sing? Yes, there are exceptions, but when I look at the idiots from Jersey Shore, listen to Katy Perry, or see the latest antics from Miley Cyrus, I highly admire and respect entertainers who enter celebrity maintaining their values, accepting honorable roles and contributing back to the society that helped support them in their chosen career in the first place.

    I understand that a lot of reality TV is addicting. It’s like the old adage, “It’s a train wreck but you can’t stop watching!” TV producers now are banking on us being riveted by people who are willing to make complete fools of themselves on national television.

    Each reality TV show has the same formula: Keep upping the ante on outrageous and humiliating behavior. ‘Actors’ are exploited with a golden carrot dangled in front of their eyes if they go to extremes. Producers love it when their ‘talent’ pulls the other girl’s hair, demands more money from her husband, etc.

    Instant gratification can only last so long for many of these actors. It’s heartbreaking to watch, not only for actors but for other entertainment industry professionals who are creating these shows for all the wrong reasons.

    Yes, I know, times change. I just wish more people in positions of authority in film, television, the music industry and so forth would advocate for good role models with good values and something to offer back to the world. I wish many more entertainers would recognize all the amazing blessings they’ve been given.

    Instead of spending their fortune on plastic surgery and more Louboutins that they don’t need, I wish that they’d search for a higher purpose – to serve God, which in the end is all that matters anyway.

    1. Oh my gosh, this is so so so true. My mom told b about this show and how these billionare wives would go shopping with their spoiled brat daughters to buy 20 pairs of 1000 dollar jeans when she has already 30! It grosses me out…

    2. This is exactly what I have been thinking about! What ever happened to good solid talent getting you famous? Having that amazing voice, or funny acting ability? I mean, COME ON WORLD! Me and my dad both think it’s absurd that the Jersey Shore cast is demanding $100,000 dollars for each person to do a single episode, where they do pretty much nothing all day. If I did the same thing, I would end up in jail more in likely, or pregnant, or drunk.
