Is It Any Good?

Kids say: Not yet rated

You've seen other shows on E! before about famous -- or marginally famous -- L.A. families and their "outrageous antics" (Keeping Up with the Kardashians and the equally unnecessary spin-off Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami, anyone?). So the question is, why do we need another one? And the simple answer is: We really don't. But maybe this will catch on as a guilty pleasure. After all, somebody apparently liked watching the Kardashians, right?

In terms of stuff you want your kids to be watching, the guilty pleasure potential factor doesn't apply. Teens are bound to identify with Shayne (whose accomplishments include a stint on General Hospital and winning the 12th season of The Bachelor). But her worthiness as a role model is iffy at best. In the pilot episode alone, she claims that she eats lots of pineapple to keep her lady parts smelling good (who knew?) and gives up on spelling "menopause," offering instead, "Ask me how to spell 'shoes.' Ask me how to spell 'lip gloss.' 'Cars,' 'money,' 'men,' 'sex' … I know how to spell those." Ugh. Can you spell "vapid" and "shallow"? We can.

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.
