"Wife Swap" Family Claims Harassment

Don't reality shows have some type of "stupidity" clause? Apparently not, since Capital News 9 is reporting that more willing participants of reality TV are crying boo-hoo. This time, the culprit is ABC's "Wife Swap."

How can a show with such a classy premise go wrong? The Felix family, of Syracuse, says they have been harassed, had to move their kids out of the house, and have gotten an unlisted phone number. Is now a good time to say, "I told you so?"

Jeremy Felix apparently came off like a racist. Um -- did he not see the cameras in his house? The family said that since the show has aired, they have received threatening phone calls and -- perish the thought -- people drive by and beep.

People -- if celebrities don't always look good on TV, what chance do you have?

The family is considering moving the family; probably a good idea. They have also asked ABC for protection, which the network is giving in to. They also claim they only received $5,000 for their pain and suffering, and now deeply regret the whole thing. Hopefully, they used that money to buy a brain.

"Wife Swap" airs Mondays at 8:00 p.m. (EST) on ABC. -- Rachel Cericola
