    Yesterday I watched the most recent ep that I had - the one with the bartender giving away liquor, drinking OTJ (totally illegal in that state), pocketing money from customers, not ringing up sales, and having a party with her friends there, after closing the restaurant.

    I think I'm totally starting to get that it's fake now. The owner said that she was losing $4,000 PER MONTH, in liquor, and figured this girl was probably the culprit (although she had no idea the extent to which the girl was screwing off).

    Now, how many months of losing $4,00 per does it take to do something about it? The impression I got was that this was going on for a while. Seems to me it would take only ONE month of that to be on the case, unless I had money coming out my caboose (which she definitely did NOT seem to have).

    Then it's always the same thing - the disgruntled employee gets all in her case about the accusations, even though s/he is seeing it all on video, like the boss was the one in the wrong. Later they apologize (ha! meaningless) and go on with their life. Nobody seems to prosecute these illegal behaviors and thievery. Really? I'd have your sorry ass in jail in a NY minute.

    I believe that all these "reality" shows are nothing but theater. One shown on True TV used MY business to stage one of their shows. Total fantasy spun as reality. When challenged, they called what they do ... "Scripted Reality."

    Also heard recently that House Hunters is fabricated. I guess real life is just too boring, so networks have to spice it up with fake conflict and content.
