The Duggar Girls Have a Big Problem They Need to Fix ASAP (VIDEO)

I'm branching out to cover the shows YOU asked me to watch! In today's exclusive episode below, I get into 19 Kids and Counting on TLC, as well as FOX's new train wreck, ahem, competition dating show, I Wanna Marry Harry. And there's Real Housewives of Beverly Hills gossip as well.

Want to know a secret? Before my career as a reality star, I had never seen a reality show. Not one. Ever. Which, to some viewers and network executives, may explain a lot. As I now jump into watching many shows on many networks, it's clear that the behind-the-scenes experience carries over into watching ANY show.

Watch the video below for my take on Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar after the engagement of their daughter Jill to Derick Dillard. I address the style of their show versus the docu-soap, including interviews, subject matter, and retakes. ALSO, I have one very big piece of advice for (some of) the Duggar daughters. Can you guess what it might be?

Also this week, have you been watch FOX's royal incarnation of Joe MillionaireI Wanna Marry Harry? I take a deep dive, well, as deep as it's possible to go, anyway, with what makes a young woman want to sign up for such a show, and what might be going through both their heads and that of lookalike star Matt Hicks.

Finally this week, Beverly Hills gossip. What goes into casting a housewife, and at what point is it better to start over versus investing in a lackluster cast member? I give you the DIRT on money and casting.

Yes! Joanna would fit right in and she does have a fabulous home there so why not? Of all the HoM Joanna seemed the only sane, sensible, good person. Hope the HoBH don't harm her!

Who the fuck cares about your shitty taste in reality shows?? Write about something intelligent for a change or are you so half assed educated that you cannot string a sentence together unless it comes straight from TMZ?

It sounds like that was recorded in a bathroom.

The Duggar girls...all ROBOTS. They speak the same , they look the same, they do side hugs, get real...and they have courtships  This not the real world and it is very hard to watch Michelle paly mother but made her daughters bring up her babies. Never ever have you ever seen her do anythng with any of the children. The girls wrote a book telling about the father;s temper and their feelings about sex. They do have eelins regardless of what Michelle tried t do to them and is Michelle's baby voice she uses real?  Michelle said once she and Jim Bob did not wait until they were married to be together. Sorry for the next two girls when these two leave the house THEY WILL HAVE TO DO ALL THE HOUSEWORK AND COOK FOR 19 POPLE EVERYDAY.

Another religious cult like house of breeding zombies. What the hell is up with TLC's fixation with religious outcasts and freaks of nature. These shows are just disturbing. Oh, speaking of freaks of nature. Alex McCord, really? Ick.
