Celebrity Reality TV

It seems like every C-list celebrity is making a reality show these days. Most are short-lived and shallow, but a handful of these "celebreality" series offer a few positive messages or an informative glimpse behind the scenes of the celebrity lifestyle. You'll still likely want to introduce these shows to kids and teens with caution -- just because someone is famous doesn't make them a role model.
