There’s nothing quite like watching rich socialites try to live like the rest of us. “The Simple Life” put Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie in situations that forced them to do actual work.
While the show was real in the sense that the girls did work a lot, Hilton admitted that most of their reactions were exaggerated for entertainment value.
The Bachelor/The Bachelorette
Like many reality TV shows that revolve around finding love, both shows are mostly scripted. There have been many rumors of producers basically working behind the scenes to create much of the drama on the show.
Everything from casting to the eventual rose ceremony is predetermined. The producers of the show are in control from start to finish, which leaves no room for love.
"Basketball Wives" follows the lives and drama involved in being married to famous basketball players.
Unfortunately for the show’s producers, in an astonishing interview, former cast member Matt Barnes claimed that the show is entirely fake. His claims were backed up by Tanya Young, who was equally unsupportive of the show’s creators.
Whitney Port from "The Hills" got her own spin-off show in "The City". Port went to live in New York City and got into various dramatic scenarios throughout her day.
While the show was essentially real in terms of the people involved, many of its events were either staged or forced by the production.
South Beach Tow
We thought that nobody would watch a show about towing illegally parked cars, but "South Beach Tow" proved us wrong.
The show’s lead star, Bernice, is known for using incredibly creative methods for towing cars. The show is obviously fake, but that doesn’t mean it's not extremely fun to watch.
