Racism and aggression in abundance

I must admit, I really enjoy “fly on the wall” entertainment, However, I am finding this series rather unsettling. The girl Autumn is such a bully, her racism is not okay! Who is policing this series? I can’t allow myself to be subjected to the hate this crass woman throws out on every episode! Is this what we are calling entertainment?

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much swearing

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (1 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

This unoriginal reality show shows how a group of women define and preserve their roles as professional athletes' romantic partners while enjoying the luxuries that come with the lifestyle. Much like shows such as Basketball Wives, it also highlights the "rules" of this community and the way women are positioned within its social hierarchy based on the kind of relationship they're in.

As wonderful as they claim the WAG life to be, these women spend a lot of time trying to cope with the fact that they're not always the No. 1 priority in their partners' lives. Meanwhile, their constant conversations about maintaining a certain image for the sake of their husbands and boyfriends is both tiresome and sexist. Viewers may enjoy this as a guilty pleasure, but chances are they've seen (and heard) all of it before.
