What's the story?

ROB & CHYNA is an unscripted reality series starring TV personalities Rob Kardashian and Angela Renée White, a.k.a. Black Chyna, as they work on their relationship and prepare for the birth of their baby. The Kardashian spin-off features the two living together, but as they work through their issues, Rob seeks support from his celebrity family, especially mom Kris Kardashian. Meanwhile, Chyna turns to her friends for support. It's not easy, but they hope to build a lasting, healthy connection.

Is it any good?

This series offers the expected can't-look-away entertainment that the rest of the Kardashian fare is known for, but it's not the most riveting part of the franchise. ROB & CHYNA talk about themselves endlessly, their relationship, and their baby, as well as argue about those things and more. The appearances made by other members of the Kardashian clan help round out events.

From seeing them learn the sex of their baby and struggle with weight, to watching Chyna have a meltdown and throw Rob out of her house, there’s enough here to satisfy folks who are curious about their seemingly mismatched, tabloid-worthy relationship. But like most shows in the franchise, there is very little substance here.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about why celebs appear on unscripted shows like Rob & Chyna? Do celebrities act the same way when they’re not being filmed for an unscripted series? Should they be considered role models if their behavior is different than how it appears on tv (or vice versa)?

  • How do you feel about watching conflict play out on camera? Do you think it's exaggerated on shows like these?
