A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.

Positive Messages

At least in the beginning, the show devotes more screen time to conflicts between the women than it does to spotlighting their careers or independence.

Positive Role Models & Representations

Some women are better role models than others, with nontraditional jobs like "stock contractor" and "barrel rider." That said, one woman's profession is listed as "party girl," and the foursome often goes out for social drinking that includes chugging beer and slinging shots.

Violence

Mostly squabbling, but with some light slapping.

Sex

Sexy dancing, cleavage, etc.

Language

Bleeped swearing (mostly "s--t") and audible words like "damn" and "hell."

Consumerism

Some visible brands, including Shiner Bock beer. One of the women is actively promoting her music career.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

Social drinking is usually to "get drunk" and includes shots, beer guzzling, etc.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that there's some bleeped swearing (mostly "s--t") and audible words like "damn" and "hell," plus regular social drinking to "get drunk." There's also some reality-show squabbling and, in at least one episode, a physical fight that involves slapping. Product placement is minimal, but one of the women appears to be using the show to advance her music career.

What's the story?

This CMT reality show trains its cameras on the lives of four spirited TEXAS WOMEN living large in the Lone Star State: Anna, a stock contractor; Hannah, a party girl; Brooke, a barrel racer; and Ali, a country singer. Anna and Hannah are living together for the first time, and Brooke is the only married one of the bunch.

Is it any good?

The creators of Texas Women could have blazed a brand-new trail by spotlighting strong Southern women with unconventional careers -- well, "unconventional," at least, to most city slickers.

Instead, it drags out the overdone drama of extreme personalities and booze-fueled catfights, revealing these women to be no different than any of the Real Housewives we know and tolerate.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about the trend -- and apparent popularity -- of reality shows that feed on female infighting. Why do people want to watch them?

  • Do these women break new ground when it comes to the way women are portrayed on television? In what ways does the show reinforce negative stereotypes about women?

  • Do these shows reflect the real way women interact? Do any of the scenarios seem staged or produced? How can you tell?
