Reality TV is costing us a fortune

I am so over Reality TV in the worst way possible.  Jersey Shore, The Kardashians, Ice & Coco and the list goes on and on.  They are even going to do a reality tv show on Kevin Jonas and his wife being part of the Jonas Bros even though the Jonas Bros have basically lost all notoriety since ONE DIRECTION and JUSTIN BIEBER arrived on the scene.

My complaint?  These people are getting paid to do what they do on a daily basis.  The Kardashians have had their fifteen minutes of fame and yet are worth $20 million a year.  Get over yourselves!!  How are you really going to spend all that money?  The studios are willing to pay these people enormous amounts of money to promote their lines or washing powder but aren’t willing to give it away to needy people!

Stop the senseless payments of stupid reality shows and start putting the money into something and someone who can make a difference.

Do specials on The Brotherhood of St Lawrence; Red Cross; Salvation Army – show how the average person lives on a pittance every week while people who don’t deserve it live in glass houses?

I have always disliked reality tv mainly because in most cases it’s not real.  It’s REAL make believe.   Being that shows are filmed, they can be edited, re-shot and doesn’t want to show any bad sides to anything.  If there is a bad side then it’s been put there to make it look real.

Yes I love fantasy and frankly when I turn on a tv I want to get away from my own real life so why can’t I expect a little romance and fun instead of the “crap” they tend to show us nowadays.

Companies who want to put their commercials on during Reality TV should start to look at the big picture.  Why pay a fortune to show your commercial on an hour reality program when you could put more commercials on over a few shows and pay a hell of a lot less.  People will notice your work no matter when it’s screened.

Give me a good old fashioned SOAP OPERA any day compared to the REAL SOAP OPERAS that exist EVERY SINGLE NIGHT on free to air TV – this includes THE VOICE, AUSTRALIA’S GOT TALENT; THE PROJECT, and the many other shows that people just want their 15 minutes.  If they just stopped and let everyone have fifteen minutes I believe it would be a hell of a lot more interesting.

Stop paying so much money for bad television – the only people who are winning are the bad actors.

I am having the best time of my life. I'm 50 plus, divorced, two grown children and just the opportunity to have a life after so many years of scrimping and saving is well worth the time it took to get here. I have a fantastic family with great family values and spending time alone is certainly something I enjoy which a lot of people find difficult to handle. I was born and raised in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia and cannot imagine living anywhere else. Strangely I don't like to travel and have no plans to do that in the future - I say strangely because so many people can't understand this, wanting to travel and experience other cultures - not on my agenda. What do I want to do? I have my new house and am enjoying making it my own but now I am looking for the right job for me after 10 years of being "just a receptionist". I don't want to be "JUST" anything anymore. I would like a job that helps me grow personally, something that encourages me to learn but also where I can be creative and people appreciate me. I want, I want, I want but really I need to know that I am comfortable in my own skin and my life means something to me. My motto is ... "People may forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel" I've had many people who I can't even remember their names tell me that I made them feel good and for that I am truly grateful. I have become an avid reader of Rhonda Byrne's 'THE SECRET', "THE POWER" & now 'THE MAGIC". Whether you believe or think it's a load of @#$!@ - I do know that it works for me and my life and I am all the better for it. You can't go wrong when you just learn to say "thank you".
