I would not want my daughter to think this is how models behave.They don not go through this in real girls get that kind of many models live like that.The mistress is called then they fly on a private jet.Yeah right.They give hard working models a bad name

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2):
Kids say (1):

While it's vaguely interesting to meet the women who appear as virtual "eye candy" in the background of popular music videos, this reality series is far too focused on girl-on-girl conflict to produce any serious food for thought. A lot of the dialogue seems forced as well, and one of the Candy Girls is actively trying to launch her acting career -- which makes her participation in the project seem more than a little suspect.

In the end, a show that could have offered a thought-provoking perspective from strong-willed women working in a male-dominated industry devolves into a celebration of trash-talking, skin, and shameless self-promotion. So if you're craving something sweet, keep looking: These Candy Girls will give you a tummy ache.
