I have been watching reality TV for as long as I could remember. I have two older sisters and when I was younger, I would find myself watching the new season of Real World before I even checked to see what Zoey 101 episode was on. Now, with all the other shows, I find myself watching a lot of reality TV, which I can’t complain about since its extremely entertaining! Real Housewives, Vanderpump Rules, Mobwives, Teen Mom/16 and Pregnant, and Real World are all shows that I watch daily. Since I am older now and watching reality TV, I realized there are many negative messages that are sent through reality TV. When I was younger, it never affected me, but now that I watch it I can see how much it probably does affect the younger generation. Filled with fights, sex, cheating, and alcohol/drug use, reality TV sends out the wrong idea to the audience it attracts. But aside from all those issues, one of the biggest issues that I think reality TV presents is Domestic Violence. I have watched it in Real Housewives, Teen Mom and Real World. The media and reality TV displays Domestic Violence pretty often and I feel that the media sends the wrong message when it comes to Domestic Violence.
