Tasha Smith and Micheal Jai White on Reality TV: ‘I Hope It Burns Out’
TV couple Angela and Marcus from For Better or Worse may not agree on much, but in real life they stand together against reality TV. Yesterday (Sept 16) during a luncheon at the OWN network in NYC, the stars of the show, Tasha Smith and Michael Jai White were very vocal about their distaste of the popular reality shows.
“I just don’t have time, I don’t know what’s going on with the whole reality thing…I hope it burns out” Michael said in response to Rae Holliday from Stuff Fly People Like’s question on his thoughts of reality TV.
While White was short on his thoughts, that didn’t stop Tasha Smith from voicing her thoughts in a lengthy response.
“I know bad and good acting, and some of these reality TV shows have some of the worst actors I’ve ever seen in my life,” Tasha begin her rant. “For us to love acting as much as we do, reality shows aren’t our preferences, we don’t see the talented actors on TV as much as we did 10, 15, and 20 years ago. So we aren’t going to be the advocate for reality shows.”
