Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

From worrying about eating Kosher to looking for a doctor to marry, the series offers a voyeuristic view of the "Jewish-American princess," a term used to describe young Jewish women who are spoiled and whose privileged lifestyle makes them a bit out of touch with the rest of the world. Some of these women proudly admit to living up to these conventions, and their behavior makes them seem more like caricatures than people you can take seriously.

Like most Bravo shows of this type, there's lots of drama thanks to catty arguing, strong sexual references, and lots of drinking and drunken behavior. Many of these moments feel artificial and staged for the cameras. But the most problematic aspect of the series is that it plays up the many stereotypes that exist about the Jewish community, especially Jewish women, for the sake of entertainment.

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.
