I have a real problem with the show "If you really Knew Me." And not just because they refer to groups of students as cliques and give them silly names like the "populars" and "loners."Do you honestly think people would be sharing those oh so heart wrenching stories, if they weren't getting camera time for it. Also they never touch on any issues that could depict the school in a negative way. Foxnews.com has an article saying MTV's show breaks boundaries one high school at a time. I'm sorry but they aren't breaking boundaries, they are casting teens who have the most intense story lines. How about the kids who just can't deal with the pressure of homework, or the kid who can't get a date to prom. Nope it's all about the teen's with depression, the popular kids who are upset because even though they have tons of friends they feel alone, and the smart kids who think they are superior to everyone else. It is just frustrating to watch a completely wrong depiction of the high school life.
