No, I do not watch either of these shows. Actually, I am not a fan of reality shows. especially when a lot of family drama is involved. I have enough drama with my own family so I do want to see anyone else’s. Unfortunately this is what tv has come to. We need more real acting, with substance and a point of view. We viewers would like to laugh and feel good about a show, not what drama these families bring to the tube. It is evident that reality shows such as this highlights the fact that these people cannot act or they would do something else acting wise.

If you dont have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all. If you don’t like the show, why comment?

I am merely stating a fact and MY Opinion. The question was did I watch any of these shows. Evidently, you like watching junk tv and that’s okay. I just don’t watch those kind of shows. My comment was really a nice one, because beleive me I really wanted to say what was really on my mind, but I try to be kinda nice on the internet.
