Coming to a reality TV near you

Snapped in the window of my local newsagent in Bristol last month:

Finding it difficult to realise your true potential as a lone parent? Fed up with having no time for yourself? Would you consider an alternative way of living that could transform your life?

BBC3 are looking for ten single mothers and their children to share a house together. We would like to offer you the chance to find out if by living, working together and sharing things like domestic chores and childcare you can improve your quality of life and more importantly help you enjoy some much-needed time to yourself.

We want to see if this radically different support network can improve your life!
With 1 in 4 kids now growing up in a household headed by a lone-parent (read: single mother), and the current vogue for parenting programmes (pdf), it was only a matter of time before the 'reality' TV mongers came up with Pramface Mansion.

The cunts.

Well, I would tend to agree with you. "Reality" TV is an abomination because the situations are so "Unreal"! Of course these womwn will find it easier in the first place , having others around them in the same situation, but life isn't like that!
