What can I say about this week's episode other than I love it! Granted, it wasn’t so fun the night we shot Camille’s dinner party, but months later, it still makes me laugh. I’m not trying to make light of any of the drama the women went through. There were a lot of tears and hurt feelings that came out of that night. But as an episode of a reality show, it’s pretty much an instant classic as far as I’m concerned.

And that’s because it’s real. As I stated in my first blog, I’ve worked as a writer on scripted programs before. But never in a million years would I have thought to write a script that would be as wacky, and outrageous, and over-the-top as what happened at Camille’s that night, because it wouldn’t seem believable!

I bring this up because I’ve seen a slew of comments both on my blog, but also around the Internet, questioning if our show is real or is it secretly scripted? It’s a common question of reality shows–and I certainly can’t speak for every reality show out there–but our show is very real.
