Style Stealer: Jamie Chung Wears Her Love For Celfies

Jamie Chung used to be on “The Real World: San Diego,” and now she’s a hot actress who has the style game of a French Vogue fashion editor, I swear. See, not every person who goes on an MTV reality show spends the rest of their life on a downward spiral towards drug addiction and endless failed attempts at winning not that much money on “The Challenge.” Get the look of a reality TV success story, after the jump!

“The Real World” Gets An “Explosive” Update For Its 29th Season

"The Real World" Gets An "Explosive" Update For Its 29th Season

“The Real World,” television’s second longest-running reality show behind “Cops,” is switching things up for their 29th season, which will have the cast returning to the third season’s home of San Francisco. Initially, seven strangers will move into a house and have their lives taped … but one month into the three-month shoot, the roommates will go on a day trip … and when they return, they’ll discover their exes have moved in. Something tell me people are going to stop being polite and start getting real right quick. According to an article on EW.com, it sounds like “The Real World: Ex-plosion” has already been filmed and while this little twist took some scrambling to arrange — producers had to convince the exes to drop everything and join the cast too — it worked out, with five of the seven agreeing to appear on the show as well. It will air sometime next year on MTV. Keep reading »

“The Real World”‘s “No Fighting” Rule Apparently Doesn’t Exist Anymore, As Proven By The Brawl On Last Night’s “Portland” Finale

Nia fights with Averey, Johnny and Jordan on the "Real World Portland" finale.
WTF?

Over the course of 28 seasons — yes, 28 — MTV’s “The Real World” has changed a lot. If you’re old like me, you probably look back on the wonderfulness of the first few seasons (“New York City,” “Los Angeles,” San Francisco”) and sigh about how the cast used to represent a wide array of people who were always smart and thoughtful, if different from each other. Nowadays, it seems the primary requirements for being on “The Real World” are being stereotypically physically attractive and willing to cause drama. But speaking of drama, the one constant on “The Real World” has always been that if a cast member gets physically violent in any way with another cast member, they are immediately pulled aside by producers and, 95 percent of the time, sent home. There have been a few exceptions (for example, Stephen on “The Real World: Seattle” was sent to anger management after he slapped departing cast member Irene), but for the most part, any cast member who physically attacks another is forced to pack their bags and go. This has also been true on “Real World” spinoffs, “Road Rules” and “The Challenge.”

Well, that appears to not be the case anymore. Keep reading »

TV is a big part of my life; I watch a lot of it, which means the invention of the DVR has been my saving grace. Over the years, I’ve DVRed one-off programs, of course, but a smart TV viewer knows to DVR whole series so that a brain fart on Monday morning won’t lead to missing the latest episode of “The Bachelor,” which would obviously be a tragedy. The problem is that these days, I’ve noticed that I’m DVRing a lot of TV shows I don’t even watch anymore and haven’t in years. I’ve got major DVR clutter and in honor of Spring Cleaning Week, I’m cleaning house. Here are seven shows I’m deleting from my DVR and why. Keep reading »

One “Real World” Dude Is A Congressman, Another A Medical Hero

Remember Sean Duffy, the sweet-talking Wisconsin lumberjack from “The Real World: Boston”? You probably know that he went on to marry Rachel Campos, the Republican who had a crush on Puck during “The Real World: San Francisco.” Well, he apparently is also now a member of U.S. Congress. Last night, he won his race for Wisconsin’s 7th District seat in the House of Representatives. “What a great night in Wisconsin,” he said at his victory party. Another interesting piece of info about him: did you know that he and Rachel have six kids. Hello, reality TV producers. [PopEater]

But Sean isn’t the only Real Worlder in the news today. Keep reading »

Teen Prostitute Makes Reality TV Dreams Come True. What About You?


We all have dreams, goals and aspirations: For some, it’s to one day have a family. For others, it’s to run a successful business. For Yorkshire’s Chloe Victoria, her dream is to make it big as a singer on “X-Factor,” Britain’s version of “American Idol.” There’s nothing particularly surprising about that, except that Chloe Victoria’s day job is as a prostitute. The 19-year-old mother of a 2-year-old has been arrested 140 times in the last two years for violations related to prostitution. Up until a few days before the competition, she was posting ads for a “100 percent English Yorkshire dirty slut” online. Remarkably, despite just an “okay” audition, judges Simon Cowell and Nicole Scherzinger voted her through and she’s on to the next round. Keep reading »

Woman Sues MTV For $5 Million, Says She Was Too Drunk To Give Consent To Appear On “The Real World”

Tears Shed On “The Real World,” As One Housemate Is Deemed “Not Skinny Enough” To Be In Playboy


Last night’s episode of “The Real World: DC,” which, thus far, isn’t living up to our high expectations (which were probably higher than they should have been, but I digress), was the show’s token weight issues episode. Ty — who has managed to confuse “honest” with “completely dickish” — told bubbly, blonde workout freak Callie that she wasn’t skinny enough to be a Playboy model. And then she cried. A lot. And I don’t blame her, as it’s totally crappy when you’re told you’re not BLANK enough to be BLANK. But seriously, it’s a sad day in the universe when one girl’s self-worth is deeply wounded because she’s not “skinny” (or plastic) enough to take her clothes off for a no longer relevant magazine run by a Peter Pan in diapers.

The Real World: Does Having A Threesome Make You A Skank?

I’m pretty sure the cast of “The Real World: Cancun” is the worst bunch of deplorable nincompoops in the show’s history. On last night’s episode, newly single Jonna (pronounced “Jon-nay”) was gettin’ busy with this tool named Pat (who already hooked up with her roommate Jasmine) and the two of them ended up having a threesome with “bi-curious” roomie Ayiiia (how are there three f**king “i”‘s in this chick’s name?!). Afterward, everyone (but Pat, of course, who, SHOCKER, turns out not to be the sweetheart Jonna thought he was) is feeling all guilty and ashamed, worried about what Mom and Dad will say. Ayiiia ended up bawling her eyes out because she feels so judged by her family. Now, I don’t know what your parents are like, but mine are both pretty liberal and open-minded and they would not be cool with me boning anyone on reality TV, let alone two people, never mind two people who are total jackasses. So, tell me folks, are threesomes becoming a lot more commonplace? Does having one make you a big ol’ tramp or is it a normal rite of passage, so long as you’re safe? Keep reading »
