reality tv
If reality television wants to grow and stick around, it might need to make a few changes.
reality shows
And believe me, they're not glamorous. They're also not "real."
thought catalog
By now, it’s my fault that I’m still surprised by these solicitation calls about my marital status.
television
I would have to sit through hour-long conversations with storywriters, sound guys, interns, that focused on the imperfections of my body. I ate salads, but the one night we had pizza I was filmed more than anyone else.

Here’s the thing: I don’t watch reality TV to have a mirror of society held up to my face.

My love life hit bottom. And then my grandmother passed -- and everything changed.
the bachelor
The show is exploitative. Degrading. Absurd. And I’m hooked.

I don't mind a little snark, but it is never, ever, ever cool for adults to say mean things about children. And yes, 16 years old counts as "a child."
drama
reality tv
I'm not here to make friends -- I'm here to make you famous.
dancing
The only reality competition series I’ve ever loved is back for its ninth season. I’m trying to sort out why it matters to me so much.
america's next top model
I was sitting next to America’s Next Top Model’s Jay Manuel, during my five-hour flight from Los Angeles to New York. So I asked him the same 5 questions we always ask.

Why am I always watching these shows that are little more than women backstabbing and backbiting? It makes me feel like I’m not practicing what I’m preaching. Am I adding to the problem?
divorce
Last time I checked, there were worse things a girl could do than court fame and money.
art
Reality TV stars inspire blogs, clothing lines, fragrances, and even foods (SkinnyGirl™ Margarita, anyone?). So why NOT a series of quilts?
moms
"70s again? I didn't even like the 70s when I lived through them."

Please fill Jane in on anything I may have forgotten. Also, I like Dr. Drew in a sexy way.

How the first episode of "NY Ink" pissed me off mightily, and what my awesome hot talented lady tattoo artist has to say about it.
