Thanx to our friends over at fashionista for this great rendering of the Simpsons as they should be. I would love a more fashionable Marge and Homer.
Why do reality couples break up? From Nick and Jessica to Kris and Kim reality shows seem to be the kiss of death for any relationship. Have you ever wondered why?
- External appraisals of private moments
- Perception of infidelity
- Financial increase
- Cosmetic surgery
The media plays a huge role in breaking up these not so lovely couples. Magazines, tabloids, and blogs can take private moments out of context and create the illusion of infidelity or bitter turmoil. Even if these allegations aren’t true adding doubt into the mind of a spouse is all it takes to cause a rift. These tiny tears are added to by the old rapper adage “mo money mo problems.” Also a random fact of divorces, many are proceeded by at least one spouse obtaining a cosmetic procedure. This piece is short and sweet but if you want more info email me and I’ll see if I can put an article together. The cosmetic surgery stuff is really interesting!
In today’s celeb obsessed world, it seems as if everyone wants to be famous just for the sake of being famous. There are less and less people willing to work hard to become something amazing, I guess it’s just easier to be on Bad Girls Club or Jersey Shore. In the wake of the recent tragedy suffered by TAYLOR Armstrong of Real Housewife of Beverly Hills, we need to give our reality obsession a second glance. Post-reality show life is not quite as idyllic as many reality show watchers assume. Having all of your mistakes and comments misinterpreted in the media and constant judgments from people you know and don’t know begins to weigh heavy on the soul resulting in some pretty negative behaviors. This is not a phenomena exclusive to reality shows; studies of school bullying also show suicidal thought and substance abuse in bullied children. Even Danielle Staub, also of Real Housewife fame, mentioned suicidal thoughts after her show aired. To all the youngsters considering a future in reality TV, think twice and think for your future. It’s not always fun to have others think of you as a perpetual joke. Please take yourself seriously or you may be the only one that does.
