Grab your tissues, reality show lovers. It's a tear-jerking end of an amazing ride.

Reality Shows Are Coming To An End This Year, What A Way To Close Out The Decade

Snooki recently announced her departure from the reality show franchise, "Jersey Shore," and the spin-off, "Jersey Shore: Family Vacation." Needless to say, I'm not surprised.

Snooki has three beautiful children and is in a marriage with the love of her life. She traded in her party shoes for tennis shoes to keep up with her children and gave up the nightlife scene to become a businesswoman.

Snooki was the highlight of my childhood (along with Pauly D) and always made me laugh when a new episode came on.

On the December 8 episode of "Keeping Up With the Kardashians," the oldest sister Kourtney Kardashian and matriarch Kris Jenner caught hell from Khloe and Kim for not being so open with the cameras and sharing their lives with the world.

Kris has done her time in the spotlight and is the main reason that their family has a television show. Kourtney is in a different headspace from when she was in her 20s and 30s.

She wants to just enjoy life with her kids and be present without having cameras around her every second of the day. Kourtney made multiple points that her kids are her first priority and that should be acknowledged and respected by her other sisters. Khloe and Kim are forcing her mom and sister to hold onto a life that needs to be laid to rest.

The 2010s was the best time for reality shows and we saw them thrive and give birth to other shows and socialites.

Snooki's departure and Kourtney's feelings about her future on her family's show have sparked a conversation that is very important for entertainment and reality television watchers to participate in.

We've put our favorite stars on a pedestal so high that many have fallen. When they fall, they're frequently met with harsher criticism than average.

They open their homes to a world full of strangers and put themselves and their families at risk because they share their personal lives with the world.

This does not count as me saying, "Jersey Shore won't survive without Snooki" or "Kourtney Kardashian's feelings about not wanted to share every aspect of her life is the main reason that KUWTK went off the air."

Both shows could go on for a longer time, and so can all other reality shows like the "Real Housewives" franchise. Still, I just think that going into 2020, there won't be as much commotion and a fixation with these types of shows anymore.

We've watched these people go through some of the most heart-wrenching times in their lives and some of the most exciting times, but all good things must come to an end.

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

Mental health is not an easy endeavor. It's not a fad. It's not a bandwagon that you can hop on and off of whenever you want to. Your yearly dose of sadness is not depression.

I sometimes look back at the days when I had anorexia and think to myself what would have happened if I had taken another bite? Nowadays, I spend days dreading over my figure and wondering if the old sundresses and outfits even fit. I tell myself that they do, but I feel like reality holds a different truth.

I oftentimes (excessively) use the excuse of my job as a writer to justify my excessive spending habits.

I needed the new Huda Beauty palette before anyone else in the name of journalistic integrity. It was my job to test out the new Francis Kurkdjian fragrance to make sure I could tell people whether or not it was truly worth the splurge (it was).

I remember the days where closet drinking before going to a party or bar was part of the night's itinerary. It was a requirement to have a good buzz flowing before calling the Uber to take you to that bar where you see everyone from your high school at. The pregames were the best part of the night, but it wasn't ever because of the alcohol, it was because of the atmosphere and those who were in it. The number of times I've heard "Wait, why aren't you drinking tonight? C'mon, get drunk with us" is endless, but think about it. Where were you when you were asked that? You were at the goddamn pregame and being there doesn't mean you need to be ripping shots. Being social doesn't require alcohol.

I asked 20 people how they cut back on alcohol while still being social.

Listen, you can do whatever you want with your free time. It's yours to spend and you have free range. However, I hope you recognize that there are a ton of proactive things you can do right now instead of stalking your man's ex – yes, I know you do it becuase we are all guilty of it.

Take this time to research your privilege. There are always new things to learn and ways to deepen your understanding of yourself, this world, and your surroundings. We live in a multi-dimensional, ever-changing society that needs your help and your time. By that, I mean there are so many layers to each and every one of us, and with our physical, mental, spiritual, or emotional selves, we can create real, positive change.
