Television's first reality series comes to daytime with STARTING OVER. Set in Chicago, STARTING OVER follows a diverse and ever-changing group of women as they attempt to make extraordinary changes in their lives - all while living together under the same roof. The women are joined by two life coaches, Rhonda and Rana, who will help them define their goals and outline the steps needed to achieve those goals. As each woman achieves - or fails to achieve their goals, she will leave the house and a new woman will arrive to attempt to start her life over. The show will also feature follow-up segments updating the women's lives after leaving the house.

Sweet merciful jesus.

Life isn't difficult enough. Let's try it in front of several million peeping toms, with a couple of designers who get paid even if they're completely wrong.

Andy, 32, New York, NY

Although happily married and highly-educated, Andy does not trust women and it's holding her back from achieving a successful career. At her husband's urging, she has come to the STARTING OVER house with the hope of finding the answer to moving her career forward.

I wonder if living in a house with five women, and being televised while she's at it will help her gain trust in her female compadres.

If SO turns out anything like the other reality tv shows, I don't think she's going to have much success...

NO KIDDING!! Half the fun of 'reality shows' is watching the participants stab each other in the back.

i think that babble should adopt nyanza: what could be more socialist than wanting to be materialistic in relating to property and people?

"It is not that we are too materialistic but that we are not materialist enough: the product itself is not sufficient but must be endowed with [advertising] 'magic'" - Raymond Williams

quote:
Recently divorced from an professional football player, Nyanza loves living the life of luxury. Shopping is her favorite hobby and gambling is another pastime. She put her accomplished career as an attorney on hold when she married because money and celebrity parties became more appealing to her. Realizing her life is somewhat empty, she is hoping to learn to be less materialistic [sic] and to develop more substantive relationships.

Nothing shocks me anymore.

One of my relatives just visited our home, and needed to watch "her show", this show is called Paradise Hotel.

It's on twice a week and involves a bunch of false, viscious, losers who are living in some extravagent hotel, lying and gossiping, trying to out-last eachother to win money.

It consumes too many resources and rots too many brains to produce this show. It's a deficit to society and to our culture.

I wish folks would stop watching this stuff and stop buying from companies who support it with advertising. We'd all be better for it.
