Reality TV – now there is an oxymoron for you! There is nothing real about it. Well other than the ratings it gathers. It is an entertainment for the bored masses watching television.
This morning I heard on the radio that there is a convention of reality TV producers pitching their ideas for “new” reality shows. One that caught my attention was “Celebrity Wife Swap” and I thought don’t celebrities already swap spouses often enough? Is there really a need to promote that idea? On the other hand it may be the most real of all of the so called reality TV shows.
How many movie, TV, pop stars and politicians have musical chairs marriages? Some of them have affairs before the ink is dry on the marriage certificate. They make their marriage a sham. Do vows to God rally mean anything to them? I have known men who believe that it is the wife who must be faithful while they can sow wild oats at will. For every man committing adultery there is a woman doing the same thing.
Life is reality while TV is a production.
