*VH1’s Kim Osorio of “Gossip Game” was a bit surprised about the comments she received from about she and her co-stars about their looks.
But who would be? After all, they are on reality television.
“One of the criticisms I heard about our show a lot of times was the way we look,” Kim told Sister 2 Sister. “I feel like I just look like a regular person, but when you’re on TV, people expect you to be extra glamorous and you have to dress a certain way, and it’s all about image and style.”
Many of the reality shows embrace women who are quite well off already. But “Gossip Game” is whole different thing, featuring working women with real jobs.
So Kim is totally taken aback by the people who feel the show is not realistic enough.
“I’ve heard people critique how we look as a cast… ‘Oh, they’re not skinny enough to be on TV. They’re not pretty enough to be on TV…’ I just think that does a disservice to all of the stuff we’ve heard in the past about what people want from reality TV,” said Kim, who’s heard the many complaints about the images of women on other reality shows.
“’We’re tired of seeing these housewives and women who are dating people and that’s how they earned their way on TV.’ Well, if you’re tired of it, then don’t knock down the fact that we’re a show of women who may not be a size 2,” she said.
She added that she received a Twitter message from someone suggesting she get collagen injections in her lips.
