Silly Surreal Life spinoff; OK for teens.

What parents need to know

Positive messages

Chris and Adrianne's relationship is one manipulation after another. Adrianne isn't very respectful of her father.

Not applicable

Bedroom scenes in almost every episode. Sexual innuendo; sexual flirting in the introduction.


Adrianne's dialogue is often bleeped out. She also freely uses the words "hell" and "son of a bitch."

Not applicable
Drinking, drugs, & smoking

Social drinking. Adrianne almost always has a cigarette in her hand.

Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Adrianne has a not-so-respectful relationship with her father and a penchant for cursing. She's aggressive and a bit wild, as well as rather manipulative when it comes to her relationship. The show's introductory montage includes scenes in which Adrianne dresses as a dominatrix, as well as photos of the pair skinny dipping.

What's the story?

In VH1's "celebreality" series MY FAIR BRADY, viewers go behind the scenes as Adrianne Curry and Christopher Knight continue the romance they began on The Surreal Life. In each episode, Curry (who won the first season of America's Next Top Model) and Knight's (Peter Brady in The Brady Bunch) tempestuous relationship takes center stage. With two failed marriages under his belt, Knight initially needed time before being ready to commit again, but Adrianne has always been more than ready to hustle him to the altar.

Is it any good?


The May-December couple, though endearing, at times comes across as offensive and annoying. Knight plays up the fact that Curry is basically forcing him to commit to her, and she often relies on her extensive vocabulary of curses to get her points across. This includes cheekily calling her dad a son of a bitch and using so much foul language that almost every time she's on screen, her sentences include bleeped-out words. Neither of these two is a particularly good role model, but watching their antics can certainly be a guilty pleasure.

Families can talk about...

  • Families can talk about commitment. What does it mean to develop and commit to a romantic relationship? How do couples develop trust? How do you feel about living together before getting married? Does it help or hinder a relationship?

it's a good lesson...

I actually think this show is perfect for all teens and pre-teens. This show shows the viewers basically what/who not to be... Adrienne Curry is innappropriate in every way, lnguage, sex, ect. This show will entertain you but still show you what not to be and who not to be like...
