A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
Living successfully as part of an integrated family is one of the show's major theme. Divorce and paternity are frequently discussed, but the focus is on working things out and family harmony.
Positive Role Models
Brown is both a successful entertainer (though some of the projects she's involved in are a bit risque) and committed mother. Stephen Belafonte is a positive parent figure in Brown's daughters' lives.
Sex, Romance & Nudity
Some strong sexual innuendo, only some of which will go over younger viewers' head. Scenes of women dressed scantily and dancing provocatively as part of a burlesque review.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that that this reality series -- which follows former Spice Girl Melanie Brown as she works in various entertainment venues while raising two children with her husband -- is pretty upbeat and includes positive messages about blended families. But there's also some strong sexual content (including innuendo and images of scantily dressed women) and adult themes, including discussions about a public custody battle between Brown and actor Eddie Murphy. Alcohol consumption (wine, cocktails, champagne) is also visible.
Is It Any Good?
Overall, the show offers viewers the chance to see how normal the life of a former member of a world-famous pop music group can actually be. Parenthood and successfully navigating the challenges of being a blended family are also major themes here.
Thanks to Brown's down-to-earth demeanor and Belafonte's humor, the show's mood is upbeat and positive. But there are times when it isn't very exciting. Still, former Spice Girls fans may enjoy watching what Scary is up to these days, while others may simply like the family-oriented fare that's featured here.
Did we miss something on diversity?
