A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
Generally innocuous, though Whitman is a workaholic and sometimes treats her employees rather firmly. On the upside, she's a successful, confident, passionate businesswoman.
Violence & Scariness
Occasional dangerous behavior -- for example, Whitman driving with her knees (no hands on the wheel).

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this reality program follows the life of a celebrity interior decorator. Because viewers see both her work and personal life, there's a good deal of talk about who she finds attractive and her past dating experiences. There's also plenty of cursing, with only the worst words bleeped. Other "highlights" include a shot of Whitman driving with her knees -- her hands entirely off the wheel -- and a scene in which she wipes a dog's behind several times (viewers get an up-close look).
Is It Any Good?
Getting glimpses of celebrities in a somewhat real-life setting can be fun, so the show works as a guilty pleasure/stay-home-sick show, but it doesn't go beyond that. As the growing popularity of the home renovation industry (both on TV and in real life) demonstrates, watching a room go from "before" to "after" can be enjoyable. And teens might enjoy the celebrity eye candy, though parents should be aware that bad language flows pretty freely, with only the major words getting bleeped.
Also, while Whitman's work ethic is incredibly solid, she could also be considered a workaholic, putting work above her health and personal relationships. Not a great message for teens. On the other hand, she's a successful businesswoman with lots of confidence, and she doesn't hesitate to correct someone if they're wrong or stand up for what she believes in. Not a bad message for teens.
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.
