Reality Shows Exposed

The problem with reality shows is that, at a certain point, the facade gets ripped off and we notice things like Matt Roloff's megalomania, Mama June's careless parenting, the Duck Dynasty patriarch's prejudices, Kate Gosselin's virulent OCD, and the Duggars' misperception of godliness.

But the people portrayed on the screen were concocted out of scraps of footage by directors, cameramen, and publicity flacks.  They were never real.
