For as long as it has been around, reality television has never truly been an accurate reflection of reality – at least not the reality that most of us experience. But as reality shows become more and more gimmicky and provocative, a cultural change is starting to occur. Viewers are actually starting to imitate the content of these shows rather than vice versa.
Doing things the reality-television way is usually not a good idea. And a new reality show making its way to the U.S. seems to be no exception. The show, called “Divorce Hotel,” promises that couples can check into a hotel married and check out divorced. Their divorce is mediated over the course of a long weekend.
