Role Models !!!!!

I can't believe how stupid the mother is for allowing the behaviour in the first place, then whining about when she realizes her kids don't respect or help out! Allowing them to install stripper poles in the house !!! And the complaining of the daughter going through the court case is beyond stupid. Crying and complaining about the reporter who said she wore Louboutin shoes to court when she actually wore BeBe shoes - way to make yourself look even more dumb.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (9):
Kids say (5):

The original intention of the series was to highlight how these up-and-coming models are following the wild footsteps of their mother. But Alexis' unexpected arrest in connection with a high-profile teen burglary ring (which occurred while the show was filming) has shifted the voyeuristic show towards a new and more dramatic direction. The result is a program that mixes scenes of the sisters crying over Alexis' troubles in between their lingerie modeling events and moments of rebellious over-the-top behavior.

The attempt at showcasing the overall family's uninhibited behavior in the midst of these circumstances not only seems like a poor choice, but also shows the lengths to which some people will go to for a shot at stardom. Ironically, what they unintentionally succeed at doing is showing both parents and teens what can happen when kids choose (and are allowed) to live too much on the wild side.

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.
