BRASIL : New Vulgar Reality TV Show...Sickens Some Viewers.

                                     GUARDIAN/ T.PHILLIPS

      A new reality TV show just aired on Brasil's Band Network.
     Called Mulheres Ricas/Rich Women...it peeks into the lives of 5 newly super-rich women.
     One study estimates that Brasil has created...19 millionaires per day...since 2007.
     But...11.5m people still live in slums...up from 4.5m in 1991.
     Critics...and the social media...are having a field day reviewing it.
    "It was hard to understand why such financially well-off women would subject themselves to such exposure," wrote one newspaper critic...adding that it "would be comic if it was not tragic".
