Reality TV : our obsession with the fast track to fame

(Written by Alexandre Lacas)

These days, it’s simply impossible to watch television without being exposed to, in some form or another, reality TV shows.  Whether you like fashion, hopeless people fighting over love, teen drama, food, music, dancing or you name it; the big networks have found a way to target us directly through our likes and dislikes.  We need to question ourselves for a second and think about how and why the reality TV phenomenon has managed to take over our screens while building a solid and extremely lucrative empire.  And why, sweet heavens, are we so taken up with it?

The Kardashians : Why do we hate loving them?

(Written by Alexandre Lacas)

Unless you’re from another planet or you’ve been living under a rock for the past few years, everyone knows who the Kardashian family is.  Whether it’s because of their 4 different but pretty similar reality TV shows or countless tabloid covers, they seem to have made a place in our lives.  Last week, I came across a cover page of Us weekly (okay, yes, I admit that I read this type of trash every now and then; blame it on my guilty pleasures I guess?) and it was advertising ‘The latest Kardashian event…’ where Kris, the mom, manager and the one responsible for turning her family into a multimillion dollar industry was now officially separated from her husband Bruce Jenner after 22 years of marriage. As I was reading the article I thought to myself, who cares?  What makes this family so special that we like to feel involved in every step of their life?  Whether it’s Kim Kardashian’s new baby with hip hop superstar Kanye West or 72-day union to Kris Humphries or Khloe Kardashian’s troubled marriage with NBA player Lamar Odom; we all love to hate, talk and secretly wish we lived their lifestyle.  But really, why is that?  How this controversial family made its way to the top of popular culture and into our lives.
