Is It Any Good?

The Paula revealed here isn't much different from the one we already know, though the glimpse into her busy schedule offers some insight into her sometimes-delirious behavior. And it's fun, in a voyeuristic way, to see her get pissy sometimes, too. (Seeing the less-than-glamorous side of celebrity might be a good eye-opener for star-struck younger viewers.) Ultimately, this is pure, unadulterated, guilty-pleasure fluff -- fun fluff, perhaps, but after watching you might wonder what else you could have done with the 30 minutes of your life you'll never get back.

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.
