And, speaking of other countries, there is once again Real Housewives of New York. Bethenny's camera-crew suffering boyfriend is now suffering seriously --- he's lost his job because, says his employer, they're offended that he'd choose to appear on the "tawdry" show. (The tawdry appearance in question was apparently at a charity function he was involved with, and not the later episode in which Bethenny's camera crew ambushed him on a date.)
They said it was reality television. Reality isn't pretty.
