You Hate Reality TV? I Don’t Believe You

You Hate Reality TV?

You Hate Reality TV?

 

I love soo many so different reality tv shows for sooo many different reasons. They are all basically the same but each one is hilarious for their own reason. What I can’t stand is people who tell me they hate reality TV or they don’t watch it. It’s a lie! I don’t care what they say. They aren’t above trashy mind numbing television, no one is.  People who tell you this only want to appear more sophistated than they really are.  I don’t watch a ton of television in general but when doing chores or working out I see no reason to avoid watching people who are just as crazy if not worse than what you currently deal with on a regualr basis.  I am not against documentaries or educational television. I love them.  I watch edu-shows all of the time but nothing compares to the awesomeness and insanity of watching other people spaz out over something ridiculous.
Reality TV has gotten me through some difficult times when I didn’t want to deal with my own reality but still be able to emote over someone elses. Are scenes scripted? Probably. Are situations staged? I am assuming but if you are a fan of reality tv you know you have related to or felt for a situation you are watching just as much has you have for any movie or scripted show maybe even play.
Every time someone tells me they hate reality tv or don’t watch it I want to poke them in both eyes. I know you do, I know you probably secretly watch it when no one is looking and probably watch some of the reality shows made like Celebrity Wife Swap or The Mole (when it was on). Just like good television writing “reality” situations still are based on reality. They are actual events unlike many a soap opera where your father and brother can be the same husband to a woman and her evil twin who gave up her baby to your fathers/brothers cousin to raise but she wound up marrying the babys biological father but he got into a head on collision and had a brain, face and arm transplant but has amnesia and doesn’t know his adopted child is his. I’m not going to lie I would like there to be more reality shows to have those kinds of plots but let’s be honest some probably are.  There is always room in my book for juicy reality show. I don’t care what any of these haters pretend. I can understand boycotting some (I personally have started boycotting all things Kardashian, except Khloe and Lamar, because I am sooooo over them, they are just mean people now) shows for personal or political views, ahem 10,000 Kids and Counting, I can respect that.  A fan of all is a fan to none I say. To hate all of them is just a bold faced lie, I refuse to believe it.
Ask these haters have they every been dumped, have they ever fought with some one they loved or better yet hated? Have they ever talked shit about someone they didn’t like or even someone they did? I can list a hundred maybe more reasons why your hater has much more in common with reality shows than they want to admit.  This has been my Reality Television Public Service Announcement you may resume your reguarl
