A Lot or a Little?

There is some discussion about racial and gender stereotypes and how they affect the women's careers.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Empire Girls is a reality series about two up-and-coming Latina celebs who are close and loyal friends. It features lots of strong vocab ("bitch," "ass"; "s--t," "f--k" bleeped), some discussions about sex and sexuality (some partial/blurred nudity too), and occasional mild arguments. Logos for designers like Betsy Johnson and cars like Mercedes-Benz are visible.
Is It Any Good?
The series is a publicity vehicle for the pair of up-and-coming celebs, but it also highlights the close and positive friendship between them. The value of family, the importance of being professional, and the need to balance one's identity while meeting the needs of the industry are also themes here.
It has lots of positive messages, but it still offers some drama thanks to prior relationships, wardrobe malfunctions, and some of the challenges they face because of their ethnicity. But the these women can be entertaining, and reality fans will no doubt find some of these voyeuristic moments worth watching.
