5 Celebs Who Hate Reality Shows

Posted by PZ on October 30th, 2012

From ‘Dancing With The Stars’ to ‘Honey Boo Boo’ and ‘The Hills’ reality shows can take many different forms, but they all give us a glimpse into the lives of others – how they deal with things, how they compete and what they’re really like as people. These 5 celebrities don’t like reality tv, even though some have even appeared on their own shows in the past! Others just believe that reality shows are completely trashy and shouldn’t be allowed to air because they aren’t teaching people anything positive and are simply bad sources of entertainment.

Adam Levine

Adam says he doesn’t enjoy hearing about reality shows and would prefer to keep his private life separate: “I’ve thought about it a lot and it’s seriously not something that I enjoy hearing about from others, so why would I want to become part of the problem. There’s so little that we get to keep sacred and keep to ourselves these days, in general, when you look at social media and television and radio, these crazy things, how much of your life can you keep to yourself and how much should you keep to yourself and I’m a huge fan of keeping a lot to myself, otherwise you just become this joke, I’m not living my life on television, I’m doing my job.”

Peter Andre

Peter admits that although he’s starred in some shows himself, he isn’t generally a fan:”Believe it or not, I just don’t really like reality TV shows. I love my show because it’s about me and the kids and we are documenting our lives, but I’m not a reality TV person. Things like ‘X Factor’, ‘Dancing on Ice’, occasionally I’ll see something but I don’t like watching them. I haven’t even seen a single episode of ‘TOWIE’, ever. That’s bad seeing as I know them all but it’s true.”

Paul McCartney

Paul says that reality shows can be addicting but not for good reasons: “You can’t turn on the telly without somebody being judged by 4 people, whether they are on ice, or on the stage or in the jungle, it’s compulsive viewing, but so is a traffic accident.”

Olivia Palermo

Olivia, who became famous for appearing on a reality show, later admitted that it was ridiculous to be a part of it: “I think from the beginning of my career . . . being in television . . . that was completely — it was just ridiculous, it was not me at all, it was a learning experience. That’s how I always put it. I’m very happy in the career I’m in now, and that’s the end of the matter.”

David Boreanaz

David insults the genre and says it doesn’t belong on tv because it’s all trash that shouldn’t see the light of day: “Why are we turning reality shows into comedy shows for Network television, the trash belongs in the can not in our living rooms.”
