Today’s installment of “things I didn’t need to learn before 10 AM” is the fact that Playgirl magazine offered Rob Kardashian $45K to pose for them, with another $15K if he posed while hard. That’s right, ladies: your gentleman’s erection is worth a total of $60,000 – but only if he’s marginally famous because of being related to someone who made a sex tape. More
Topic: The Real World
This site has previously documented how some reality stars, including former Real World housemates, go into porn after their fifteen minutes fade. Now, MTV is closing the circle by hiring a porn star to appear on the next season of The Real World. 24-year-old Dustin Zito, who is a regular on a gay porn show called Fratpad, will be a housemate on The Real World: Las Vegas.

Although reality TV only got included at the Emmys within the last decade, it has been around for quite some time. The first reality show, PBS’ An American Family, aired in 1973. MTV’s landmark The Real World aired its first season in 1992. And almost as old as reality shows are reality cliches. The one I hate the most? Blaming the editing. Every time someone humiliates themselves on a reality show – or just does something normal without realizing what a horrible human being they are – the invariable next step is to blame the editing and claim that their words/actions were taken out of context.

If you remember The Real World: New Orleans (not the recent “back to New Orleans” season, which we’re never speaking of again), you’ll remember Matt Smith, the cast member who was equally devoted to his skateboarding and his Christianity. Matt, now 31, has since married and is enrolled in an MBA program at the University of Arizona. And now he’s back in the news again – this time because he helped deliver his own daughter. More
Last month, we posted a gallery of “1o Former ‘ Real World’ Housemates Who Actually Did Something Notable.” Considering the success some of these former housemates have had recently, we thought it would only be right to update you. Sean … More
Forget Modern Family. Forget The A List. The gayest show on television is MTV’s stalwart The Real World/Road Rules Challenge. The show, which brings together all the most crazy/histrionic cast members from the two shows and forces them to compete against each other in events like cliff-diving and mudwrestling. Of this season’s 30 castmembers, six have had same-sex relationships on camera. That works out to 20 percent of the cast, which is higher than the average reality – or scripted – show. More
Tonight, one of the guiltiest of my guilty pleasures returns to TV – The Real World/Road Rules Challenge. Created mostly so that all those knuckleheads from MTV’s reality shows could earn money without having to mix with the general population, the show features former Real World and Road Rules ‘stars’ doing everything from running on treadmills while drinking gallons of milk to sitting on blocks of ice. However, there are a few people from Real Worlds of yore who have managed to rise above their reality roots and actually accomplish something with their lives. Let’s meet them, shall we? More
The MTV Video Music Awards last night were a whirlwind. No, literally. The white carpet was like a wind tunnel — hair was getting blown this way and that, and most celebs shuffled down the press line with goosebumps, clutching their clutches tightly to their bodies as if they alone would hold in their body heat.
But we were troopers, and despite the fact that we are not necessarily the best photographers in the world, we got some good action shots and found out some serious scoop on our favorite reality stars. The theme of the evening was black and gold, so you’ll note that anyone starring in an MTV show is rocking the combination. Some of our favorite dish from the evening: More
