Donna Mills is a big star with big opinions.
On the newest podcast episode of "Behind The Velvet Rope with David Yontef," the soap opera icon sat down to dish her opinion on reality TV — and let’s just say she had some thoughts.
“Shows like the Bachelor and the Bachelorette, and those kind of shows and the Kardashians and all that, I hate. I hate. My daughter used to watch the Kardashians, and I would say, 'What is wrong with you? What kind of values are you getting from that?'” the Knot's Landing star said about the famous Kardashian clan on their popular 20-season show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
“It makes me crazy. Somebody said to me, ‘You’ve got to sit down and watch with her and you’ll understand why she’s watching it.’ And I sat down and I watched it with her and I hated it even more,” Mills continued.
When asked why she disliked the popular reality series, Mills pointed out a common critique, saying that the reality stars don’t actually “do anything.”
“There is no artistry, you know, there’s no actual thing they do. They don’t sing, they don’t dance. They don’t act, you know, they don’t do magic. They don’t play an instrument. They don’t do anything. And for me, it’s like, I don’t want to watch them. Did they have nothing to offer me?”
“I know, I dunno, I know her slightly, and she’s a lovely woman, but you know, I still, I don’t think...I don’t have any respect for it, for the, what they do. I just don’t,” she commented on Rinna and the Housewives franchise.
Mills also touched upon other topics in the podcast and reminisced on her role as Abby Cunningham on Knot’s Landing; she talked about her favorite co-stars and even discussed the evolution of women in Hollywood since the '80s.
