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.

Sorry but I have to disagree that this is only "iffy" when it comes to social behavior. Last episode I watched (before turning it off for good) was Sean Combs talking about how big one the girls' rear ends was. And she was a normal-sized girl!! That's tacky and such an unbelievably lousy message to be giving girls. And boys, too, for that matter. Ugh.

Best show on MTV

I love the show. The girls are great. I hope to see them around for a while. Sean may have came across the right girls. They are cute and sexy and they all have great talent
