Storyline

The Surreal Life is a show about celebrity has-beens, ones who were hot back in the day when they were on the A-List. This is what happens when they've fallen off that list long ago and are no longer in the public eye. As they live their day to day lives in a series of misadventures from odd confrontations to bizarre personal issues, they learn to live together as a family. Taking many people from the movie, television, and music industries, this is how they all live together in one Los Angeles mansion. It's how their life has become surreal. Written by monkeykingma

No More Omarosa
16 October 2005 | by Cate1956See all my reviews

Mean, spiteful, cruel and hateful, Omarosa's slurs to Janice Dickinson on "The Surreal Life" was unwarranted, uncalled for, and without merit. With her fifteen minutes of fame long spent, Omarosa and all of her hyphens need to slither back to Capital Hill. Let "The Entertainment Industry" leave the overwrought, overacting to the professionals, or at least Tom Cruise or Shannon Doherty, they are well trained for that type of work. Viewers are not entertained seeing Omarosa call someone a "Crack Whore". We are not entertained with Omarosa using pejoratives that refer to someone as a "Bad Mother," and it is simply heart breaking when Omarosa is given TV air time to tell Janice Dickinson that "your children must hate you". There is no world that I know of where that statement will entertain. Omarosa is not entertaining as a villain; she is not entertaining as an apprentice, Omarosa quite simply is not entertaining. To Janice Dickinson, may I say...I apologize for watching "The Surreal Life", for listening to those things that Omarosa said to you. I agree with you, that was wrong! I just want you to know, from one Mother to another, when Omarosa said those heartless, cruel, defamatory things to you, I, for one, was not entertained!
