This is an MTV love story very few people saw coming. After experiencing public heartbreak on their respective reality shows, Teen Mom 2 star Javi Marroquin and Real World: Skeletons alumna Madison Channing Walls are giving love another chance. "Javi and I are definitely together," Madison confirmed to E! News exclusively on Wednesday evening. "We are definitely boyfriend and girlfriend." According to the couple, Madison direct messaged Javi on Instagram after many fans thought they had similar stories about exes and babies. What started off as a friendly conversation quickly turned into nonstop talking, which ultimately turned into a relationship. "I love that he is a »
So earlier today I wrote a short piece about The Chappelle Show and mentioned how I think that “Mad Real World” could be the best skit I’ve ever seen on a sketch comedy show ever. But in that same article I also mentioned another amazing sketch comedy show: In Living Color. When you look back at that show it was truly the precursor to The Chappelle Show so you have to give it credit. Also, the amount of comedic talent on that show is tough to match (with the exception of the entire history of SNL). When you look at

If you run out of something to write and you work on a television site, just post something from The Chappelle’s Show. That’s essentially one of my credos each and every day. But today is special because I’m rehashing what I consider to be one of the best segments in the history of the show, “Mad Real World.” It’s a parody of MTV’s The Real World in which the worst stereotyped white male moves into a house that is comprised of the worst stereotyped black people. If you’re a super PC person then this video isn’t for you but it’s

Numbers don’t lie. A recent study found female filmmakers remain “grossly underrepresented” when it comes to directing opportunities, and there is no arena in which that is more apparent than Hollywood’s own studio system. As The Wrap recently noted, “of the 149 movies currently slated for a wide release from the six legacy studios over the next three years, only 12 have female directors. That means a whopping 92 percent of the major motion pictures due in theaters through the end of 2019 will be helmed by men.”
That number only includes studio features from the big six, not speciality arms like Fox Searchlight, Sony Pictures Classics, or Focus Features. However, adding those more indie-minded distributors (which are often heavy on festival acquisitions) doesn’t paint a much rosier picture. Over the course of 2017 and 2018, only 24 films directed by women will hit theaters care of a Hollywood studio, and despite continued attention »

Kim Kardashian West is once again rocking her favorite new accessory: a lip ring.

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight the titles that have recently hit platforms. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of streaming titles (new and old) across platforms such as Netflix, iTunes, Amazon, and more (note: U.S. only). Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.
Who knew that one of the year’s most potent representations of America’s addiction to abrasive conflict would be Anne Heche and Sandra Oh beating each other to a pulp? Onur Tukel’s Catfight is an unabashedly silly and political film, but it’s also a funny one, with its two lead actresses literally and figuratively hurling themselves into their roles. Heche and Oh play »

Ask a certain crowd of people what the defining MTV show of their childhood was, and it’s not Trl, or Real World or Jersey Shore. It’s Daria. Though Ms. Morgendorffer had been seen on Beavis and Butt-Head before, the March 3, 1997, premiere of Daria proved that the two shows couldn’t be more different. Let’s take a fond trip back to Lawndale for a closer look at the best animated misanthrope of the ‘90s.
Judge agreed to release the character, but that’s where his involvement with the show ended. »

Tron 3, which had the working title Tron: Ascension, isn’t dead, according to director Joseph Kosinski (Oblivion). Every once in a while somebody involved in Tron 3 says never say never, but two years ago was when Disney pulled the plug on the project. During a recent Q & A for Tron: Legacy, Kosinski said the sequel is in a “cryogenic freeze” […]

Why am I just finding out about Bad Girls Club right now? I mean I know I’ve read that title before but season 17? Really? Why has no one told me about this guilty pleasure? From what I understand season 17 of Bad Girls club is doing an “East meets West” kind of a thing and they’re already gearing up for the third episode tonight. Seven women, kind of like The Real World have been picked to live together in the same house. While the tagline isn’t “see what happens when people stop being polite and start getting real,” that’s

Just about anyone who owned an Nes is familiar with the game Contra. It’s a classic. From the amazing unlimited lives code (up down up down..you know the rest) to the music to the sick weapons you got to use, in the pantheon of greatest games of the Nintendo Entertainment System, most people would put it in the top ten. The series just celebrated its 30th anniversary, as the arcade version began appearing in arcades in late February, 1987. Though most people are much more familiar with the home version and hold a special place for it in their hearts,

Hot on the heels of the momentous announcement of the Eeoc’s finding that Hollywood Studios “systematically discriminated” against women directors, a group of 52 executives, producers, and directors have banded together to present ReFrame, a new initiative working towards concrete, lasting change when it comes to gender inequality.
Founded by Keri Putnam of the Sundance Institute and Cathy Schulman of Women In Film, the duo behind the Female Filmmakers Initiative have amassed an influential group of industry creatives committed to the mission of gender parity. For the last two years, the group has been plotting and strategizing new ways to break gender barriers in Hollywood.

Hopefully the picture above gives you an indication of what these photos are all about. A photographer by the name of Francois Dourlen has a pretty awesome hobby. He’ll take real world photos and then with his phone he’ll find a scene, any scene that can replace a particular element in a picture and then create an entirely new photo. For this particular set of pictures I’ve focused on the ones he mixed with movies and TV. As you can see in the photo above he replaced the back of a car window with that of Jim Carrey as a

I was thinking about putting up a comparison picture for this guy but do we really need one? This is about as spot on a Khal Drago as you’re going to get in the real world with the exception of people who are cosplaying the character. Obviously this guy did this all on purpose and he’s not quite as large as the real Khal Drago but come on! Funny because if you were going to write an article or come up with photoshops of “Game of Thrones Characters in the Real World” I think this is exactly the picture I
