We're hard pressed to think of a better way to showcase the two main genres of reality television than this side-by-side comparison of the Thompson (of 'Here Comes Honey Boo Boo' fame) and the Kardashian families' Christmas cards.
Have you ever wondered what it would be like if your favorite celebrity was just like one of us? What if they worked in the cubicle right next to yours - or what if they were just like that average guy or girl that you see every now and again in the laundry room at your apartment complex?
Oh, the life of a Kardashian. Lounging on yachts worth millions, sipping on champagne and bouncing their money-makers (literally) in exotic waters were all on the agenda when the entire Kardashian Klan took a recent trip out to the Dominican Republic. They also found time during their free time to record a lip dub to Notorious B.I.G.'s 'Hypnotize.'
Just when you think you may have heard enough from the infamous family known as the Kardashians, they drop another bombshell on you. This time, news is out that they are interested in coming out with their OWN magazine. They already have their own reality show, clothing line, and boutique, but now they want to control what is being said and/or reported about them via their own publication.
During her 18th annual ’10 Most Fascinating People’ special last night, Barbara Walters pulled no punches while interviewing the Kardashians. In fact, Walters pointed out that the family is simply famous for being famous. Oh yes you did, Babs!
Who would have ever thought that the most realistic "reality" show from The Kardashians wouldn't even be on television. Right now the Kardashian Klan is in an all-out catfight on Twitter with Farrah Abraham-known to more people as Baby Sophia's mother from MTV's 'Teen Mom.'
Ahhhhh, The Kardashians. Sometimes I feel like their lives are lived strictly for our entertainment. This week Kim & Kourtney Kardashian's New York based reality show kicked off with the season premiere, and in perfect timing, early this morning, Kourtney dropped the news that she is pregnant for baby #2.
I often smirk at the term "reality TV", being that most of it plays out to be the farthest thing from what you and I would consider "reality." From the ironically unreal world of MTV's 'The Real World' to the fairy tale bachelor/bachelorette shows that always end in disaster when the cameras stop rolling, reality TV has taken over as seemingly the only TV.
