‘Southern Charm’ is proof that you can make any show successful as long as you put an interesting spin on the classic formula of ‘The Real Housewives’. While its premise is interesting, former participant Danni Baird stated in an interview that many of its cast didn’t even live in Charleston.
He also claimed that much of the drama was pre-scripted by producers. So all in all, it’s not so authentic. Oh so fake.
I Am Cait
Caitlyn Jenner rocked the world when she announced her transition into a female, and everyone wanted to follow her story. 'I Am Cait' was the answer to that demand, and followed the lady throughout her challenging gender transition.
Once the first season was over, most of the excitement was gone, so the producers began creating fake scenarios for Cait to react to. Exceedingly fake.
'Hardcore Pawn' revolves around the Gold family, who runs a pawn shop in Detroit’s rough 8 Mile. While the show is entertaining and teaches you a thing or two about negotiations and handling people, much of its drama is fake.
Many of the show’s participants later claimed that their incredibly exaggerated fights with the Gold family were completely fake. Entertaining, but fake.
In today’s always-connected world, a group like the Amish tends to get quite a unique reputation, and many are obviously fascinated about their lives. And for good reason. 'Breaking Amish' introduced the premise of Amish people trying to break away from their confined lifestyles and moving to New York.
It’s known at this point that the show is actually fake, as these people aren’t really Amish, just acting. Extremely disappointing.
Keeping Up with the Kardashians
Whatever you might think about Kim Kardashian and her family, it’s impossible to ignore the fact that they have managed to make literally billions off their name and likeness by ginning up controversy and getting attention. Their reality show, 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians', has been around since 2007, and it's obviously fake to a very large degree.
It still draws in millions every week though, so apparently, the truth isn’t all that important. Kept up and fake.
