Q: Do you watch reality-TV shows?
A: I do watch a little bit. I've seen Survivor and The Bachelor.
Q: What do you think?
A: They're not bad shows. But these people are living in fantasyland. Every time the bachelor picks a female, haven't they broken up later on? Every one of them breaks up, including that other one, Joe Millionaire. No one has gotten together.
Q: Why watch?
A: Television is my entertainment.
Q: Like an escape?
A: Just entertainment. I don't escape. I'm a realist. Do you know what a realist is? A realist doesn't deal with any fantasy.
Q: Well, they call it reality television. Anything real about it at all?
A: It's a stretch. It's just 15 minutes of fame. Or people looking for financial rewards.
Q: Any lessons to be learned there?
A: There are absolutely no lessons that can be learned there.
