{March 28, 2008}   The one with all the reality shows


In the last couple of years, reality shows have hit an all time high and what we are seeing more recently are the reality shows that involve celebrity families. They claim that they want the world to know that they’re a normal family, but the truth is that they either want to create a better fan base for themselves or to make their family look better in the media.

The most recent family that has stated that they are going to start their own reality show is Lindsay Lohan’s mother and sister. Even though Lindsay claims that she will not appear in the show, the fact that she is constantly in the media and that she has such a bad reputation, brings up the specualtion that they want to start the show at a peak of her fame and use it to promote themselves, proving that that they are not as crazy as Lindsay is.

Here’s some other celebrity families that have used a reality show for their own purposes:

1. The Hogans: Their reality show “Hogan Knows Best” convenienty came at a time when Hulk was no longer a wrestler and his children were creating a name for themselves. Brooke made her album and Nick was trying to become a racer, and the cameras were there to catch it all.

2. Snoop’s Dogg’s family: He claimed that he wanted his show “Snoop Dogg’s Fatherhood” to show that he’s a normal dad when he’s not working. However, it didn’t seem like a coincidence that he was making his new album at the same time, and it seemed to be the oppertunity to costantly promote it on the show.

3. The Osbournes: Though their antics weren’t exactly normal and self-promoting on their self-entitled show, they still kept their names in everyone’s ears.

Celebrities may say that their shows are meant to be about the truth, but the truth is that all their shows have selffish purposes. If celebrities can’t get the media’s attention naturally, they might as well create a show to do it for them.
