I'm guilty of indulging in some reality television here or there. Most shows are like watching a circus version of humanity. The people have very little shame, and because there isn't really a plot you end up watching them do embarrassing things. Whether you like it or not, reality shows are killing television. Because a lot of people are tuning in and how cheap they are to make, they are taking over and almost ousting great scripted TV. Curious to see what crazy things these stars have done for ratings? Here are 13 moments that is contributing to the decline of TV.
1. Christina Milian getting her nipple pierced.
2. When the Kardashians made a home video that might as well have been an explicit music video.
3. That time a Real Housewife of New York took off her leg and threw it at her enemy...
4. All those times women have sugared up their kids to perform in beauty pageants on Toddlers & Tiaras.
5. TMI! TMI! TMI!
6. Nicole Richie breast feeding her pups.
7. That time we watched Paris Hilton "cleaning" on The Simple Life.
8. The time Kourtney decided to work out while wearing a sex toy.
9. When Phaedra from The Real Housewives of Atlanta decided to pay a stripper a compliment.
10. Honey Boo Boo going crazy with pads.
11. Duck Dynasty's Jase getting peed on by a frog he caught.
12. A teenager being the worst on her birthday on My Super Sweet 16.
13. Snooki getting arrested for public intoxication.

Bjork has opened up about her painful 2013 split from longtime boyfriend Matthew Barney, revealing most of the tracks on her new album were inspired by the breakdown of the romance and its aftermath. The eccentric pop star reveals she poured her emotions into the songs on Vulnicura, explaining the split was "the most painful thing" she had ever experienced.
Bjork tells Pitchfork, "The only way I could deal with that was to start writing for strings; I decided to become a violin nerd and arrange everything for 15 strings and take a step further than what I've done before."
Still emotionally raw 18 months after she and artist Barney ended their relationship, Bjork sobbed during her new interview, explaining the album's lyrics tell the full story.
She adds, "It's really hard for me to talk about it. It really is in the lyrics. I've never really done lyrics like this, because they're so teenage, so simple. I wrote them really quickly. But I also spent a long time on them to get them just right. It's so hard to talk about the subject matter; it's impossible.
"There's so many songs about (heartbreak) that exist in the world, because music is somehow the perfect medium to express something like this."
Bjork and Barney's romance lasted more than 10 years and they share a daughter, Isadora.
Former High School Musical star Vanessa Hudgens' Broadway dreams have been realised - her hit new stage show Gigi is heading to New York. The big theatre news was announced on Wednesday (14Jan15) and the actress took to Instagram.com to celebrate with fans.
She wrote, "Omg (oh my God) I can't believe it!!!!!! It's official, after DC I'm going to be making my Broadway debut with @gigionbroadway. Feeling so blessed, grateful and extremely excited!!!!!"
The revival of the play, about a simple Parisian girl who is trained to be a courtesan, will begin performances in March (15) at the Neil Simon Theater. Opening night is set for 8 April (15).
Meanwhile, Hudgens and her castmates will stage the show at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C. from Friday (16Jan15).
Managers of bands including Radiohead, Arctic Monkeys and One Direction have signed an open letter to British politicians calling for a crackdown on concert ticket scalping. Some of the most powerful figures in the music industry have joined forces to put together the letter, which was published in Britain's Independent on Sunday newspaper ahead of a debate by Members of Parliament (MPs) on the issue in the House of Commons on Monday (12Jan15).
In the letter, the managers ask politicians to crack down on scalpers who use "unscrupulous" practices to resell tickets and rip off fans, and urge them to back proposed legislation to tighten rules on secondary selling platforms.
The note reads, "We are committed to ensuring that event-goers have the best experience possible at a fair price. The way that the secondary ticketing market is allowed to operate at present can seriously undermine that effort... Secondary platforms court major ticket touts and take allocations directly from promoters to sell on above face value to unsuspecting consumers... If the secondary platforms have nothing to fear from transparency, they have nothing to fear from these simple provisions. It's high time the Government stopped sticking up for them, and decided to put fans first."
The letter was also signed by Iron Maiden's manager, as well as the bands Bullet For My Valentine, Gallows and Cancer Bats, and representatives for a number of festivals and music events.
Angelina Jolie has revealed she and Brad Pitt were already husband and wife when they wed at their home in France last year (14). The couple exchanged vows at their Chateau Miraval retreat in August (14), but now the actress tells the new issue of Corriere della Sera magazine she was Mrs. Pitt before she and the movie star flew out for the top secret nuptials.
She explains, "Before the wedding in France with the kids, Brad and I were already married in California. As Americans, we couldn't marry legally in France."
And she insists the legal ceremony was a very simple affair, adding, "One day I said to Brad, 'Let's meet up at 4.30 pm'. I called a justice of the peace and we signed the documents."
"We chose a simple and intimate wedding that was perfect for us. We wanted the day to be about our loving commitment to each other." Ludacris' new wife Eudoxie Mbouguiengue gushes about the couple's recent impromptu wedding, which took place hours after the rapper proposed on Christmas Eve (24Dec14).
"This is the happiest time in my life, and I could say that every day. I often feel like, 'I can't believe I'm experiencing this'. And that can be a big moment like my wedding day or a simple afternoon in front of the fire. I know how fortunate I am. And I'm excited to see the entire journey that my family is going to go on." New mother Blake Lively is thankful for all the blessings in her life. The actress welcomed her first child with husband Ryan Reynolds just before the New Year (01Jan15).
Goodfellas star Paul Sorvino rang in 2015 as a married man after tying the knot for the third time. Actress Mira Sorvino's father exchanged vows with political pundit Denessa 'Dee Dee' Benkie outside the Lincoln Center in New York City on 27 December (14).
The new Mrs. Sorvino tells the New York Post, "(It was a) very short, simple, sweet ceremony. It was just us."
Sorvino, 75, and his bride celebrated their nuptials at nearby restaurant Cafe Fiorello.
The couple met and began dating last year (14) after they were both guests on U.S. TV news show Your World with Neil Cavuto.
Sorvino was previously married to Lorraine Davis, the mother of his three children, Mira, Michael and Amanda, until 1988 and then to Vanessa Arico for five years from 1991.
