Although some of the reality shows today have displayed women of color in a negative light, I still can find something positive out of what has transpired from these shows. Many of these “Reality Show Diva’s” have taken the fame and exposure they have received to develop and launch successful beauty & fashion businesses. To me that says a lot about them, because you have to be a true business women to use reality shows as a stepping stone to a bigger enterprise.
