Reality, if it's convenient

I don't watch "reality" TV shows, as I find them explotative, and far from anything resembling "reality". An example of this was in the news this week as an American Idol participant was dismissed from the show for having been involved in a Porn webstie when she was 18. Interestingly enough, the producers even knew about it, but let it ride until someone found out. Why was it okay to have this person included in the show if what she did was so bad that she would have to be kicked off? Especially when the producers already knew?
So apparently, TV producers are interested only in the "reality" that they have preconcieved, and reality only becomes real when it hits the papers. The fact that someone is talented but had to actually struggle in the real world just doesn't fit into that notion. Too bad for her, I hope the publicity this spawns will garner her enough notice to get a recording deal that will eclipse whomever actually wins this Star Search/Gong Show hybrid.
