How they portray you to be
Is not - REALITY
Only fabricated lives
Leading to more lies
In order to keep up
APPEARANCES

Shamefully
Even reality
is NO longer
Reality
When it comes to TV
These days

  2. Dana, your words are right on. "Reality TV" definitely is far from!! If Honey Boo Boo is reality, spare me. I would rather look out of the window than waste my time on that.

  4. Reality on TV is not, can not, be reality. Unless your reality has numerous camera crews trampling over your life. Nicely captured.
