Where to begin....

Never mind. It would fall on deaf ears.

Yeah now what, txt, go for it. It is definitely a positive & wonderful show that promotes & helps disturbed young adults get into even more self-destructive habits as America watches on & basically laughs. Yep, sounds like a great idea.

She's 100% correct txt. These people will be making a ton of money off of you. The more idiotic you look the more money they make.

Do they pay for that show? Do you know how much? Can you read a contract because they will make you sign your life away for the chance to "be a star".

If you've ever seen the tv show they have a computer there at the house.

What would your first parental reaction be?

What would you say/do?
Would you try to talk them out of going?
Would you even watch the show knowing what you may or may not see?
How would you feel about your child for even wanting to go on this show?

Can we get back onto THIS topic???

But I garentee you there is some kind of confidentiality clause that says you can't talk about the events surrounding the show.

So who are you going to boo hoo to when one of the other mean girls moves your shoes?

But they don't have seven showers or however many people are on the show. You might have to wait to use the shower and I know thats a deal breaker in your book.

The whining is what they would capitalize on. One of the reasons I said she'd make great TV. She's got a "hook" going in.

Txt, if my adult children came to me saying they'd signed on to do a reality show I'd rap my knuckles on their foreheads and ask if anybody was home.
