Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this series -- which follows reality celeb Audrina Patridge as she pursues her entertainment career -- focuses on the benefits of her tight-knit family. But it also highlights angry family arguments and negative tabloid moments, in which her mother is often involved. The language can be pretty salty ("hell," "piss"; other curses bleeped), and there's drinking (wine, champagne) and occasional cigarette smoking, as well as scenes of bikini and lingerie modeling shoots. High-end product logos (Mercedes-Benz; Badgley Mischka) are prominently visible.
Is It Any Good?
Audrina offers viewers a voyeuristic look into the every day life of a reality star whose fame comes from a combination of her modeling and on-screen career and tabloid gossip. While a lot of the show's focus is on the love of family, some of the drama centers on negative family dynamics, which usually involve Audrina's mother. The reality star's eroding romantic life also leads to some friction.
Audrina's approach is quite down-to-earth and likable, but her overall world reflects a rather privileged and materialistic lifestyle. Ironically, she also makes a point of noting some of the negative impact that being a reality star has had on her life, including dealing with intrusive paparazzi. In turn, viewers are left wondering why she's starring in another reality show -- and why her family agreed to join her.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
