All You Chic Brooklyn Moms Who Have Served Time Need To Audition For This Reality Show

Considering that a reality show in which parents can “bet” on their babies was greenlit, there’s just no telling what the next “big” reality TV pitch might be. But a look at a recent casting call for Brooklyn women who have been incarcerated can certainly give us a tip. Brooklyn mothers, grab your Bugaboos from your VIP stroller parking and take the tots out early from toddler CrossFit. You need to be in this lineup. More »

Mom Caught Her 13-Year-Old Daughter Reading A 'How To Make A Sex Tape' E-Book Oh Dear

Yeah yeah, parents can shield their kids from what kind of media they are exposed to and what they are buying for their Kindles and it’s ultimately the parents’s responsibility, but ideally don’t we want a world for our young daughters where they realize that becoming famous for having a private sexual moment leaked to the press isn’t something admirable?

8 Mom Reality Shows I'd Rather Watch Than The Rich Kids Of Instagram

I like some reality TV shows. I like seeing how other people live. But all this new rich kids show will do will make me furrow my brow a lot and invent new profanity.

Orlando Shaw Has 22 Children, Can't Currently Pay Child Support, But Totally Deserves A Reality Show
