can we get rid of reality stars?

March 8th, 2016 at 02:59 pm

I don't watch much cable, I do watch television but only streaming. I've never watched any reality tv show. I sometimes catch the voice auditions but nothing else. I do admit to reading star, US weekly, in touch in line grocery shopping or target. That is really my secret shame (I love reading the trashy mags I don't know why).

But seriously I have to look up most reality tv stars and see what they were on and who they are. I never watched Keeping up with the Kardashians, but I have to ask "who watches that crap?" Why are they still on and around? All I ever see on msn or cnn or any news sites is Kanye West and Kim Kardashian story. And the stories about them are TERRIBLE.

They are terrible people no matter how much money they make and what they are worth. Prior to this lastest twitter spat, I thought, "they must be doing this for rating and money." Now I really think they have no idea what sort of horrible people they are and completely delusional. Worse yet is how our society worships them and allows them to be constantly covered. I cringed reading Kanye West was $53 million in debt and wondered how the hell did that happen? And then Kim K posts nude selfies and thinks it's great and wants adulation? I just wonder why people will get tired of them, I am praying soon.

When will we get rid of reality shows and these horrible people who become "reality tv stars?" Do you watch any of these shows?

    Yes please! It's so tiresome and a huge toll on quality of pop culture. And sometimes I see examples of young people who aspire to be like them: famous and ostensibly rich "personalities" with no discernible talents or intelligence.

    The only reality shows I watch (not very often since we dropped cable) are talent contests: cooking, performance, design. And some makeover/renovation shows. Those at least have talented people displaying their craft. I used to watch HGTV shows like House Hunters until I learned they're entirely fake. Then I lost interest in them.

    Yes, let us get rid of them! I don't watch those shows you mention or follow any celebrities in any real way. I do catch my husband watching TMZ! I'm not sure why. We most stream tv shows on Netflix, the ones with real actors. Smile

    I like "reality" shows with people showing off professional skills, like Top Chef. Will admit I do watch Deadliest Catch or House Hunters International from time to time too. I don't watch any shows that are about the people themselves rather than what they are working on though.

    Why anyone likes reality TV is a complete mystery to me. I think reality shows are cheap to produce, which is why the networks love to produce them, but why do people watch? And why are reality stars discussed on the news? News used to be news; now it's junk.

    I swear I want to know who is watching them? I don't get it at all. How you become famous for doing literally nothing but being rich? Just let a camera follow you around like the Kardashians and then you keep it on you 24/7?

    Is it rude to tell Kim K I don't want to see anymore selfies on the news?

    I think most of what we see of "reality" stars is them doing stuff to get in the news - but not really who they truly are. Although I suppose if they do it long enough, the fakeness becomes their reality.

    I don't really watch any tv anymore, but I have watched/enjoyed some of the singing reality shows and Dancing with the stars = although they're enjoyed much better when you can fast forward through about 1/3 of it ...

    (head hung in shame) I *do* watch Dance Moms on Tuesday nights and Project Runway on Thursday nights. And it really is usually while I'm folding laundry or doing other random nonsense.

  8. FrugalTexan75 Says:

    Laura - you need the stress outlet. There's no shame in that.

  9. ceejay74 Says:

    Project Runway is one of the better ones out there -- you get to see some amazing talent and determination from the designers. I'd watch that if I still had cable!

  10. LivingAlmostLarge Says:

    Laura I agree I don't think those shows as bad as real housewives or keeping up with the kardashians. I don't mind the voice or american idol
