entertainment industry coach Question 452: Umm what's the obsession with cheezy people from NJ on reality shows?

Alas, a question that has finally stumped me. I have many DEAR friends from New Jersey, NONE whom are anything like the Garfield/Snooky chick from The Jersey Shore, Teresa from the Real Housewives of New Jersey, or anyone from Jersey Couture or Jerseyliscious.

I truly don't understand this new reality phase. I suppose it's the "train wreck syndrome"; something so awful, yet you can't tear your eyes away from it.

I have no answer. In fact, I just have to leave it at this because I find it disturbing (although I am happy for all of the crew members who have jobs because of them, I just hope their brains are capable of tuning out the awfulness of these freaks.. and by freaks I mean everyone on those shows EXCEPT the Manzo Family members- I'd like to live, and Albie's hot).
