The voyeuristic series offers viewers the chance to see how reality celebs work out their tabloid-worthy problems in front of the cameras. The colorful personalities of the cast, which includes folks such as Viva La Bam's Bam Margera, I Love New York's Tiffany Pollard and Sister Patterson, and infamous exes Dina and Michael Lohan, the parents of Lindsay Lohan, only add to the spectacle.

There are some some brief moments of insight and healing, but these fail to have any significant positive impact on the overall show thanks to the yelling, violent outbursts, and other behaviors featured here. Ultimately, it's a show that's meant to be more entertaining than helpful or proactive by capitalizing on the family dysfunction that extends these folks' five minutes of fame.
