Researchers are saying that reality shows like the "Real Housewives" series are making people, especially young girls, mean. Women on these shows are constantly acting petty, fighting with each other, and attacking each other to the point of tears. It's "Mean Girl Syndrome' to the max, front and center for us all to see.

Girls will watch this and think it's okay to be mean to their family members and closest friends. Should these shows be off-limits for girls, or do the women on them need to be nicer to each other?
