Sarah Silverman Thinks Reality TV Should Come With A Warning
Sarah Silverman isn’t making any jokes when it comes to her frustrations with the women of reality TV.
On the first episode of Lifetime’s, The Conversation With Amanda de Cadenet, the comedienne says that she doesn’t understand how she can be labeled “offensive” in comparison to reality TV.
"I'll tell you what's offensive: these shows that are on television, on ABC during primetime. Twenty-five women in JC Penney prom dresses, fully grown, going, 'He took us to a castle!' No he didn't. Producers procured a castle! And there's 25 of you -- that's how special you aren't."
Silverman later admits that she watches programs like The Bachelor and Real Housewives, but believes there needs to be a certain maturity level when watching these shows.
"I think, 'Wow, some young girl is watching this, and there should be a warning saying, 'This is not acceptable behavior,'" Silverman said. "The biggest thing that a woman should realize is that there is not just one slot for a woman in any given thing. I think that's something that society -- men and women both -- have enforced. It's in the ether that one woman's success can only come at another woman's failure."
The Bachelor continues to be a success since it’s first season in 2002, and has generated two spin-offs, The Bachelorette and Bachelor Pad.
