When I was a child, there was always a good family TV show on like Full House, Family Matters, Cosby Show, and Boy Meets World. Today the younger kids do not have anything like those positive television shows to look at, but they do have the reality television show like the Bad Girls Club (BGC).

When Ripsy did black out, she started beating on her roommate Kerri. The other roommates tried to get Ripsy to stop beating on Kerri, but nothing seemed to have been working. Nothing seemed to work until Ripsy falls into the swimming pool. The...
