How do I paint over walls that have been wallpapered?

Sandra asked 4 years ago

Bedroom walls are wallpapered a number of times and I just want to paint over the paper, but I don’t want it to look like that is what I did. How do you cover the seams in the wallpaper so it isn’t so obvious? When you watch some of the makeover shows on TV, they just paint over the wallpaper in a room. How does it look? Do you have to prep with a primer or use a particular type of paint?
