A little reality television never hurt anyone.
In fact, we like to think that it can be educational. We learn important things, like not to feed our children Go-Go Juice (thanks, "Toddlers and Tiaras"), not to date a guy who spends more time on his hair than you do (looking at you, "Million Dollar Listing") and how to "smize" (our gratitude, "America's Next Top Model").
Then there are the more substantial lessons. Money lessons, in fact. For every Real Housewife selling her life story to tabloids, there are savvy businesswomen, brilliant managers and etiquette situations we might all face one day.
So take this opportunity to learn money lessons from six popular reality shows ... and no one will blame you if you need to do some follow-up "research."
To see the slides in one list, enter the slide show and select "list view."
