A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
The series is designed to entice spoiled and entitled women to grow up and be strong and independent by holding them accountable for their attitudes and behaviors, but this is overshadowed by the emphasis on reality show fare like catfights, partying, etc. It also offers very stereotypical images of what average people live like.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this series about spoiled women who are tricked into participating in a reality show designed to help them change their behavior contains some good messages, mixed in with lots of iffy content. While the show's stated intention is to encourage the women to be less selfish and more strong and independent, these messages are offered within the context of over-the-top reality moments, including cat fighting, salty language ("bitch," "hell," "ass"; plus stronger words muted), excessive drinking, and smoking (including a hookah pipe). It also contains stereotypes about America's middle class. Not surprisingly, expensive brands like Mercedes-Benz, Louis Vuitton, Charles David, etc. are frequently seen or discussed.
Is It Any Good?
The series is intended to show how these women must take responsibility for their narcissistic and egotistical behavior in order to understand that there is more to life than material wealth. It also underscores how the overindulgence of loved ones, as well as deep-seated psychological issues, also contributes to their behavior.
It contains some good messages, but the show focuses more on the cast members' attitudes, which are so entertainingly over-the-top that it makes the women seem more like caricatures than real people. In between the catfights and salty language, it also offers a lot of stereotypes about what constitutes being middle class or "average" in America. Bottom line? Like overindulgent parents, the producers of this show may have had some good intentions, but eventually lost site of what is really important.
