    The Truman Show

    ★★★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Is this how the stars of Love & Hip Hop really live? Is life even real at this point? How come I couldn't debut in a life with a rich family and not having to work, but instead go to school since the age of five, still be going to school at age twenty-three knowing damn well I still have to work after I graduate?
