don't be tardy

Being a mom is hard enough, I think everyone reading would agree. Being a mom on reality TV brings a whole new layer of crazy to deal with, and I saw a big problem this week with Kim Zolciak and her daughter Brielle on Don't Be Tardy, season 3, episode 6. In today's exclusive video below, I break it all down, as well as the finale of Leah Remini: It's All RelativeLeAnn & Eddie episode 5, and an update on that Dance Moms lawsuit.

Kim and hubby Kroy Biermann may well think they are using reality TV as a disciplinary tool for Brielle, but I don't think Brielle will appreciate it, and the cons far outweigh the pros. Having her daughter look lazy and foolish on national television is a problem. In today's video I explain where I think they went wrong and how they might be able to salvage things.

Leah Remini and her family set out on an RV camping trip for their finale, and it's quite a lot of fun. This show is a hybrid of the reality genre, more like a sitcom parody of a reality show. However, that makes the show more expensive to produce, as I break down below.

We can't go into the weekend without discussing LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian. On episode 5, it's Eddie who was a problem for me, though LeAnn has her own online problems. Are you allowed to make things up on a reality show? Well, there's no black and white answer, as those of us accustomed to producer engineering and editing know well. In today's video I detail what (I think) you can and cannot get away with in production.

Finally, there's new news for the Dance Moms and the lawsuit that could bring down the reality TV genre as we know it. No lie. I'm serious. Watch now!
