Kristin Cavallari Caught Reading A “Hills” Script

We already knew “The Hills” was fake from that time Lauren Conrad told the ladies on “The View” that Spencer wasn’t on the other end of her apology phone call. Oh, and from that other time when L.C. wrote a book based on her experience on “The Hills,” and the character…

Beyonce, Lady Gaga, And Britney Spears Top The MTV VMA Nominations

So get your ballots ready, cause the nominations are in! “Single lady” Beyoncé and Lady Gaga each have nine nominations, tying for the top spot.

TV Shows That Are Complete Rip Offs

DJ AM, who you may remember as the other survivor in a plane crash along with Travis Barker, has a new show set to debut on MTV. The plane crash wasn't the first time DJ AM, aka Adam Goldstein, defied death. Eleven years ago, he was a crack addict who attempted suicide,…

MTV Gets Boner For Racy Teen Dramedy

It seems like only yesterday that MTV was promising to create a lineup of kinder, gentler new programming. Apparently, that's off the table. Now, the struggling-for-a-new-identity-in-the-digital-age network is courting the kind of racy content once only fit for HBO. Possibly inspired by the buzz surrounding HBO's new show, "Hung," in which one well-endowed guy…

Do You Have Bisexual Tendencies?

Watching "The Real World: Cancun" makes me feel old for multiple reasons. 1. I am five years too old to actually be cast on the show. 2. It's so insanely vapid that I cannot actually watch a full episode, which says a lot considering I can stomach an entire marathon of "Keeping U…

D.C. Isn’t Thrilled About MTV’s “Real World” Filming

Some D.C. folks have not rolled out the welcome mat for "The Real World: D.C." cast members and the whipped cream/hot tub/fake lesbian make out sessions sure to come. Quite the opposite, in fact! A couple D.C.-ers are grousing daily about their fratty new neighbors on the Anti-Real World D.C. blog. Explaining their,…

“Daria” On DVD, Finally!

La, la, la, la, la, I've got to be direct, I've been waiting for "Daria" on DVD ever since MTV took the "Beavis and Butt-Head"-spinoff off the air. Daria was to alt-girls what Cher Horowitz was to Valley girls. She made it okay to wear combat boots and not care about the latest fads. And…

Get Alexa Chung’s Style

MTV's new "TRL"-esque show, "The Alexa Chung Show," started this week and its VJ's style has already caught our eye. Good thing, then, that MTV.com will be detailing just what Alexa wore every episode online, with links to where the exact and similar items can be purchased. And look! She's even rocking…

Past Sexual Partners Stay With You Like Unwanted Pubic Hair

Check out this ad for MTV's Staying Alive global HIV and AIDS prevention campaign. What better way to visually represent how people's past sexual partners stay with them forever and become entangled than with name-shaped pubic hair! [Copyranter]…

Bar Refaeli Gets Naked And Inked For Esquire Cover

Spring must have sprung. Everybody's getting naked! Especially when it comes to the covers of magazines. Yesterday, it was Miranda Kerr stripping down and chaining herself to a tree to save the koalas on the cover of Rolling Stone. Today, it's Bar Refaeli taking it all off for the July issue…

Paris Hilton Documentary Doesn’t Reveal Much

Paris Hilton is so misunderstood that she's decided to let the world see the real woman behind the image in "Paris, Not France," a documentary that debuted last year at the Toronto International Film Festival. The film, according to the Los Angeles Times, was supposed to go along with the 2006 release of…

Leftover Pad Thai Is High Art? Photographer Mark Menjivar Thinks So

You've seen "Cribs," right? Each week, cameras capture a celeb's master bedroom, backyard pool, and refrigerator full of perfectly organized rows of Fiji water or Diet Coke cans. Well, think of Mark Menjivar's collection of photographs, entitled "You are what you eat," the high-brow version of the peeping-tom show.

Use A Condom When You Get Into Bed With MTV

MTV wants to protect you from the skanks you see on their station. To commemorate STD Awareness Month, they’ve launched a safe-sex campaign. And they’re so down with the kids, they’re speakin’ their language, their cell phone language, that is. The new initiative is called "It’s Your Sex Life," with a focus o…

Where Is The Music, MTV?

MTV plans to launch 16 new reality shows over the next four-and-a-half months, in an effort to retain its young and flighty audience. Recent ratings show a 23 percent drop in the network's core demographic of 12- to 34-year-olds. The new series will be in the same vein as "The Hills," a slightly scripted succe…

Who IS Russell Brand, Anyway?

Russell Brand quotes Oscar Wilde as easily as he rocks his ridiculously teased hair. He’s sexy, he’s suave, but, above all, he’s smart and he isn’t afraid to speak his mind. Despite getting flack for openly teasing the Jonas Brothers about their chastity rings and the “retarded cowboy President” Bush at the VMA’s last night,…

MTV VMAs: Totally Crappy In Every Way

Did the budget get majorly cut for this year's award show? Sure seemed like it, given the scaled down event space and the horrendous lineup of performers. Host Russell Brand was either hysterically funny or horribly flat, depending on who you ask, but I think everyone can agree that the British comedian (known for hi…

MTV’s Model Makers: Because Eating Disorders Make For Great TV!

Really MTV? Now, I know I can hardly knock ya too much -- after all, The Hills is my vice -- but when I read about an upcoming show called Model Makers, I knew maybe my favorite craptastic network had gone too far. Billed as a "Transformation Make-Over" reality show, Model Makers advertised…

Romance On TV: “The Hills” Is Back And More Scripted Than Ever

By now, it's pretty much accepted that The Hills is, to a certain degree, scripted. According to a recent article in Entertainment Weekly, parts of scenes are re-shot (for example, if the girls enter a nightclub and a crowd of people get in the way of the camera, the producers will have the girls enter…
