Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Lone Star Lady is a reality series with lots of positive messages about the importance of valuing family, tradition, respect, and responsibility over material wealth. It also contains some iffy vocab ("piss," "ass," "hell"), some risqué humor, and some occasional drinking (wine, beer) and cigar smoking.
Is It Any Good?
From refusing to leave their family home or get a maid to providing outhouses for the boys when they demand a bigger house with more bathrooms, Rochelle's brassy personality and hands-on parenting style creates lots of humorous moments. Some of her family members' unique personalities also add to the fray.
Most of the show is clearly staged for the cameras, but a lot of these scenes are genuinely heartwarming and funny. Adding to it are the positive messages it sends about placing positive values above money and the love of family. The result is some lighthearted reality fun full of positive messages.
