    Moment of Truth: The show that ruins lives

    I watched this clip from this show where people are hooked up to a lie detector and asked questions. This episode probably ruined a marriage and this girl will never get hired again. Ouch.

    Re: Moment of Truth: The show that ruins lives

    Yeah, sometimes I wonder why these shows even come about. Its amazing how we viewers get off on watching the lives of others ruined. I wonder how much is staged and how much these folks get paid to be humiliated if its all real.

    The question is, if you know you've done some terrible things and have some very dirty laundry, why the hell would you go on that show?!?!?!

    Personally I've seen a couple episodes and there have been some embarrassing moments and a couple question raisers in the relationships but nothing too terrible that I've seen.

    Re: Moment of Truth: The show that ruins lives

    I wonder if a lot of that stuff is staged though... I watched it that other night and it seemed a little bit over the top. The questions were absolutely crazy.

    Re: Moment of Truth: The show that ruins lives

    If you watched the one on Monday, it was horrible. The host even had a disclaimer at the beginning of the show saying how he didn't want that episode to air because he thought it crossed too many lines.

    The girl destroyed her marriage, walked away with low self-esteem, and with no money.

    It was hard to watch.

    I watched the same one. If all of that was real, she ruined her entire life.

    With all of that said...you still watched-which is why these shows survive.

    As far as depth goes though, the combination of White, Woodbury, Olaseni, Basabe, and Uthoff is much better than Niang, Ejim, Edozie, Gibson. Not because of the top 2, but because of the next 2 or 3. -DeanVogs

    Agreed. If you choose to go on the show you deserve what happens.

    Re: Moment of Truth: The show that ruins lives

    They obviously know what questions are going to be asked so if there was really something you didn't like, don't agree to go on air!

    A short recap of the show the other night. I didn't see it but all the old ladies around me were talking about it.

    Re: Moment of Truth: The show that ruins lives

    I refuse to watch the show - I don't consider watching people ruin their lives and bring their family/friends down in the process in hopes of trying to score some $$$ as entertainment. This show is pretty much offensive to me.


    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?
    Maria Sharapova: Don't you beat up other guys for a living? I don't know how to answer this.

    basically this show is a fluffer for the Jerry Springer show.
