Former reality TV star Pamela Anderson who has appeared on reality TV series such as Big Brother, Dancing On Ice and US show Dancing With The Stars has labelling the concept “desperate and exploitative”.
The on-screen character’s remarks come after a few stars from the United kingdom reality series “Love Island” urged producers to offer help to contestants after they leave the show. Earlier this month, former contestant Mike Thalassitis was found dead, nearly a year after.
The 51,years old actress, said: “Did I enjoy being on a reality show on Twitter that the genre can leave people feeling “used, dirty, and with no feeling of accomplishment”.
Pamela continued,“You are usually bullied into doing TV like this by agents fighting over commissions – you’re left without any great amount of joy or money- Please no more reality shows or reality stars- even France is polluted with them – it’s an epidemic of ugliness, superficial competitions, desperate and exploitive for the artist.”
“Unless of course – you attempt to find any meaning or redemption by donating all to charity. It’s how I forgave myself,” Anderson tweeted.
