Flashback Friday-Growing Up Gotti (2004-2005)

Every genre has their own sub-genre. The reality television genre is no different. One of the more popular sub-genre within the overall concept that is reality television is the show about the personal life of someone who is rich and/or famous.

In 2004 & 2005 A&E included Growing Up Gotti on their schedule. The show took the audience into the everyday life of Victoria Gotti (daughter of the late crime boss John Gotti) and her sons. Set in the suburbs of Long Island, NY, Victoria was then a single mother trying to raise her boys while dealing with everything else that life throws at you.

While the show was mildly entertaining, I can look back and see that it relied a bit too much on stereotypes to draw the audience in.

Do I recommend it? Maybe.
