It seems that today’s reality television programs are the new soap operas that we grew up on in the 80’s and 90’s. In fact, reality television shows have been so popular that they are popping up all over the place with characters that have become household names. But there is one reality show in particular that has been getting a lot of “buzz” lately and that show is “Basketball Wives” depicting former wives of basketball players displaying very disturbing behavior.

Every time the characters on this show get upset with one another the drinks are placed on the table the pumps come off and the swinging begins. I have yet to watch one episode of “Basketball Wives” but from what I’ve heard and read it is one of the most degrading of an example of what it means to be a woman and displays the wrong behavior to young girls as well. The show has gotten so bad that advertisers are pulling the plug and maybe it is time for the network to do the same!
