The 'Real' Story Behind Wedding Reality Shows -- Video Interview

I'm kind of addicted to wedding reality shows. What I want to know is... how much of it is real? Come on, the very first episode of Wedding Island showed a guest literally ruining the ceremony photos. Stay tuned at the bottom of this post for an exclusive sneak peek at the upcoming episode.

And just this week, there was a controversial post here on HuffPost about Unplugged Weddings. What's the deal with these guests? What I really wanted to know was whether the show's producers had put this guest up to it. Seriously, no one in their right mind would stand between a bride and groom in the middle of the ceremony to get a close-up shot, would they???

So, I stalked the show's star, Sandy Malone, and got her to do an exclusive video interview. Here's the story behind the story. Note: please be patient with google on-air's video quality and the fact that it cut out the intro. It was just your standard intro. "Hi, I'm Ariane. This is Sandy. Um, Sandy, what the $%^& was up with that guest????"

And here is the promised exclusive sneak peek at this week's Wedding Island episode. Best. Entrance. Ever.

Disclaimer. When I say I'm addicted to wedding reality shows, I mean it. In fact, I made it a job requirement for all of our employees to watch 4 Weddings and Wedding Island. I figure it's the absolute best way to provide compassionate customer service. What's your excuse for your addiction?
