THE REALITY SHOW MERRY-GO-ROUND
Reality shows have become the ilk of television to me. Every day some D-list celebrity is either rumored or confirmed to have a reality show in the works. For some celebrities, the reality tv show formula has worked for them. It revived an otherwise dead career. For others, reality shows have proved to sink them even further below the radar, even reducing them to court jester status. The new trend is recycled reality tv vets. We are seeing the same damn folks over and over again on different shows and networks. Just the other day I stumbled on some silly show on VH-1 called "Celebrity Paranormal Project". It's basically a show where they stick celebs into an allegedly haunted location, leave them alone and other celebs watch their reactions on a surveillance camera. How many times can we stomach Toccarra and her tittays, Gary Busey and his scary Chicklet teeth, and Hal Sparks with those same stale ass jokes? It hasn't been three years since these folks were on other reality shows. Hell, Hal Sparks' last reality show just ended earlier this month! We don't get enough time to even miss these folks! Shit, I feel like I'm being haunted by their asses! BOOOOOOOOOOOO for real!
Next up on the celebrity bandwagon, a new show featuring former Flavor of Love girls and Mo'Nique as the host. Now I don't know about you, but I certainly won't be watching this. I got roped into watching Flavor of Love Season 1 but I could not force myself into watching Season 2. I watched it all the way up until the chick shatted on the floor. I had to call it quits after that episode. That was buffoonery at its finest. I guess reality shows are a way for folks who have no real talent to get noticed by any means necessary. This is why it's important to make sure your children get a proper education so they won't end up on the reality show merry-go-round.
