You know, ever since a little Dakota Fanning magnificently tackled playing a wise six-year-old in the very grown up movie I Am Sam, I knew she was going to have an amazing career…and she has. The actress has run the gamut by playing thought provoking and controversial roles throughout her tween and teen years while her Hollywood peers were partying hard and being typecast in every teen movie we've ever seen. Not only that, with a thriving and respected film career, Dakota managed to graduate high school (one she actually attended where she was a cheerleader and homecoming queen) and begin her studies at NYU. All the while, she's still picking roles that help hone her craft and catapult her into blockbuster status (thanks, Twilight!).
Proving that you can be a major star and not have your name in the tabloids every day (are you listening, LiLo?), Dakota has managed to stay under the radar regarding anything other than her career…until now. That's right. Dakota Fanning may be an award-winning actress, a serious college student, and an avoider of the negative limelight, but she's also an avid reality show watcher–and not just any reality show.

2012 is rapidly, rapidly coming to an end and before the Mayan Apocalypse claims us all make sure to catch up on all your 2012 reality TV marathons. Who doesn't need a 50th viewing of the infamous "Who gon' check me, boo?" argument.

We all know there's only one reason to appear on these shows right? Product hawking!
Below is Reality Tea's list of the best products of 2012:
I know I've said it before, but I love, love, LOVE the Robertson family. If I didn't think Jase and his wifey were so adorbs, he would totally be my dream guy. Yes, I'm talking about that little gem on A&E known as Duck Dynasty. Sure, the situations they get into are definitely scripted, but the love and hilarity is so real. Duck Dynasty is what reality programming should always be like…it's the same reason I watch Here Comes Honey Boo Boo and Jersey Shore. They all truly care for one another.
Yes, they're hairy and silly and don't shower that often, but they are all very intelligent and kind. Did you know that Phil is a former school teacher who declined the NFL draft while playing first-string quarterback at Louisiana Tech? The second-string quarterback when Phil played was NFL Hall-of-Famer Terry Bradshaw. All of his boys went to college, and they all became Duck Masters except for Al who used to be a minister…he's also the only one sans beard. Okay, okay, I'll stop with the ridiculous Robertson trivia. I just love them…and now they've given me yet another reason.
The Robertsons typically live under the radar (minus the whole reality show thing), but now they are using their popularity for the greater good. I am not at all surprised. These are good people, y'all, and if you've never watched, I highly encourage you to do so. It's drama-free fun…and cute burly men!
Our favorite reality TV stars can’t get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite photos from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!
A&E is doing the happy dance this week as its smash hit reality series, Duck Dynasty, became its most-watched show ever on Wednesday night. The Robertson family's season 2 Christmas-themed finale drew in a staggering 6.5 million viewers!
A&E's president says the reason viewers are connecting with Uncle Si, Phil, Willie, Jase and the rest of the Robertson clan is because “Duck Dynasty represents the best of A&E’s unique brand of storytelling, showcasing authentic and engaging characters.”
