Tell me she actually cares and I'll eat my hat!!
I can't... and that's why I believe those kids should be adopted into warm, caring, two parent families who will love them for who they are, not the cash cows their mother sees them as. That may sound harsh, but I just don't see them getting the kind of nurturing, love and care all kids deserve... and should get if they are to become decent, respectable adults.
Sadly, however, the 'mother' will hang onto them for grim death and, devoid of a proper upbringing, an education in morals, scruples and principles, I see some of these kids devolving into lives of crime to get by/ahead. I hope that I'm wrong, but the odds against it are not good.
And as far as reality shows go...there's only one reality and that's the one we're living right now. No jobs...no place to live...people going hungry...swine flu pandemic killing people all over the world...health care so expensive it's beyond the reach of people with meager means...this is reality not that bullshit those greedy dipshits put on the boobtube. What makes it so damn irrational is that they know this and just don't give a damn!!
This is why I rarely watch television any more... there's too much bullshit and bad news on it. Nope, I don't even watch the new/current affairs anymore... 99% is too depressing, and the other 1% is about how the rich and famous live, which is also depressing when so many are living below the poverty line while they live in luxury and greedily horde their billions.
As for the reality show, well they are 100% bullshit and spit in the faces of decent folk who, though no fault of their own, are struggling to make ends meet. The trillions spent producing this crap is a disgrace... an insult to humanity, nothing more. And to add insult to injury, most if not all participants (supposed contestants) are wannabe actors who can't get jobs anywhere else, so many of these 'reality' shows are founded entirely on bullshit. It's all staged, yet the producers sell it as 'rea'l and expect viewers to believe the scenarios and that the competition is real.
A classic example of bullshit was The Bachelor a while back starring Aussie tennis star, Mark Phillipousous. Yeah, right! There was no way on earth he was going to marry one of those wannabe actresses, but the producers still churned it out and expected people to watch/believe it. Oh, and to answer any questions that may arise, concerning my knowledge of it, I caught the tail end of it some nights while waiting for Stargate to start... which is another pet peeve of mine... program schedules never running on time because of excessive ad breaks/station promos running over.
Another thing that gets up my nose big-time about late night TV here is the highly repetitive inclusion of mobile phone sex ads trying to sell videos and etc... not to mention the constant/too frequent 'preamature ejaculation/erection problems' ads. After 11.30pm they come back to back throughout the night until the early hours of the morning...usually stopping around 5.00 - 6.00am before the kids get up. YUP, wall to wall 20 - 30 second sex ads that go for that too often are epeated 2 or 3 times per 4-5 minute ad break, which usually is scheduled about every 10 - 12 minutes apart.... and all aimed at selling porn and peddling pills.
So how does this relate to the OP/remain on topic? Like um, the word 'reality' when used to describe total bullshit shows with wannabe actors. However, it's the too frequent use of "premature ejaculation" ... "erection problems".... "get 'blah-blah' stripping on your mobile phone". Now that is more than an abuse of words and phrases. HELL-O-OO-O!!!! "Like I didn't hear it 30 seconds ago, or the other 200 times the ad played since 11.30pm.... and it's now only 2.00am!!"
The prime motivator for 98% of everything that happens is MONEY.
And none these pill peddlers, moblie phone sex merchants or reality (?) producers will be getting ANY of mine... not after they've repeadtedly insulted my intelligence to such a degree I feel like I want to go out and strangle the bastards.
