The Real World may have started out as a social experiment to see what happens when people stop being polite and start getting real, but 30 seasons later, it's become an excuse for seven hot twentysomethings to have the time of their lives on camera. It's still as entertaining as ever, but the reality franchise has lost its deeper meaning: to explore issues that young adults deal with like diversity, religion, abortion, illness, sexuality, AIDS, death, politics, and substance abuse. But this season, The Real World: Skeletons is going to bring the MTV reality show back to its roots, and get real again. The season begins in the traditional way with seven strangers moving into an old nightclub turned »
The Real World/Road Rules Challenge franchise has become known for its recognizable and fan-favorite cast of returning favorites. Some competitors have even made a living and established a career based on their appearances on the MTV reality competition show.

Diem appeared on seven seasons of The Challenge, and was filming her eighth appearance on the upcoming season in Panama when she collapsed on set. Diem had been battling ovarian cancer since her diagnosis in 2003 until she passed away on Friday at age 32. One of the reasons Diem remains to be one of the greatest competitors to ever appear on The Challenge is »

The portrayal of the Lgbt community on TV has come a long way since 1963, when NBC’s “Espionage” became the first drama series to use the word homosexual in a script.
On Wednesday night, the Paley Center’s L.A. Benefit Gala offered a look back at the last 50 years of programming and gathered small screen stars including Portia de Rossi, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, and Eric Stonestreet to celebrate TV’s impact on Lgbt equality. The fundraising event, held at the Skirball Cultural Center and sponsored by Honey Maid, chronicled the history of Lgbt images in television, from dramas and comedies to TV movies, miniseries and sports.
De Rossi, who was accompanied on the red carpet by her mother-in-law Betty DeGeneres, discussed her own personal struggles and growth as an actress and member of the Lgbt community.

Last season, MTV's long-running reality show, The Real World, flipped the script with Real World: Ex-Plosion.

And if you think having your ex move into the house with you while cameras are rolling is bad, just wait until you hear what the Real World cast members have to endure this season. Think back and reflect on your life so far. There are probably a few people—exes, family members, ex-friends, ex-coworkers—that you'd be totally fine with never seeing again. In fact, you hope »

Reality Blurred's Andy Dehnart looks at changes in MTV's Real World over its 30 seasons, discovering that the twists, gimmicks, and changes started early in the show's life, leading up to season 30's The Real World Skeletons. Monday, MTV announced that it will mark the milestone 30th season of the first modern reality show by calling it "The Real World Skeletons." While those of us who grew up with "The Real World" are ancient compared to MTV's 12- to 24-year-old viewers, that is not a reference to its former fans. Instead, the subtitle refers to the cast members' pasts, which will literally haunt them by moving into the house. With "skeletons" involving bullying, pregnancy, and cast member being surprised by a dad he's never met, it seems like an insane, desperate, and ethically dubious twist. But as crazy as "The Real World: Skeletons" is, it's just another twist in a long »
