Reality TV – you gotta love it. Who would’ve thunk that when MTV debuted The Real World in 1992 that reality television would soon take over the airwaves? Today, it’s not only a source of entertainment for viewers but also a source of money and fame for the celebrities and commoners who choose to expose their day-to-day lives to the cameras. For the most part, reality TV has served its stars well. Many women on the Housewives series produced by Bravo have been able to plug their small businesses and have racked up enough money to divorce their husbands (yes Nene, we talking about you) and many who had no talent whatsoever have been able to capitalize on their pure personalities (yes Nene, we still talking about you). Nevertheless, there are casualties.
For those who walk onto a show with nothing to lose If you walk onto a show with nothing to lose, then it usually works for you. But if you came into the reality television with an ounce of dignity and a lot of pride, then you may have not totally benefited from reality TV a la Kim Kardashian.
