People have willingly appeared on daytime talk shows for decades discussing pretty embarrassing topics to the rest of us.
Most of these appearances are controversial and they didn’t start with “Cash Me Ousside” girl last year.
The Morton Downey, Jr. Show, Jerry Springer, Maury, and much more have all exploited people going back decades using “trash TV” to gain viewers and advertisers.
Not everyone watches these shows and prefer to watch Ellen or The Talk or other programs that are a little more positively-driven.
Alas, it’s 2017 and we’re inundated with even more daytime talk show choices – and legal dispute programs – and their popularity doesn’t seem to be waning.
The biggest issue with some of these shows is while they are trying to shock audiences with absurd themes, there are real-life people who have to deal with the aftermath of their appearance.
A lady named Gemma appeared on the tabloid talk show The Jeremy Kyle Show for an episode about dealing with their partner’s exes, but for Gemma, she became harassed and bullied for something completely different: her teeth.
