How much raciness and other adult material there is in this series depends on who is being discussed. Therefore, suitability for 12 and 13 year olds varies from one episode to the next. That said, this series discusses the ups and downs of fame and show business and does not hide or sanitize the dark sides. This series serves as a cautionary tale for teens of how not to behave and what to avoid. While these lessons are particularly useful for those who end up becoming famous, everyone, famous or not, will have something to learn from these stories.
