Despite the title's wild-and-crazy connotations, these pampered princesses' antics aren't really all that bad compared with seriously "unleashed" behavior seen on other reality shows. And maybe that's a good thing. After all, we don't really need another reality series urging girls to one-up first-class passengers aboard the Rock of Love bus, right?

Of course, nothing's sacred in reality TV, so it shouldn't surprise you to learn that Veronique's decision to "vajazzle" herself in preparation for a pending first date is a major plot point of an early episode. (Or that she forbids friends from posting pictures of her vagina on Facebook.) But there's actually a split-second moment of poignancy when Rachel talks to Lauren about losing her mom to breast cancer, prompting Lauren to reach out to her estranged dad with a tearful voice mail message. Too bad those moments are far too rare.

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.
