Storyline

The Surreal Life is a show about celebrity has-beens, ones who were hot back in the day when they were on the A-List. This is what happens when they've fallen off that list long ago and are no longer in the public eye. As they live their day to day lives in a series of misadventures from odd confrontations to bizarre personal issues, they learn to live together as a family. Taking many people from the movie, television, and music industries, this is how they all live together in one Los Angeles mansion. It's how their life has become surreal. Written by monkeykingma

Quotes

Christopher Knight: [making a movie] Jane... I don't think there's time for that. We should just get to rehearsing.
Jane Wiedlin: [annoyed] Okay, Chris, I know you're trying to help and you've had more experience in directing than I've had... but if you could butt out, that be nice.

the second season was my favorite
13 December 2005 | by Noir-It-AllSee all my reviews

I liked the first season, but the second was my favorite. I loved everyone on the show. There was something about them so I ran to the IMDb and looked up their birthdays. Sure enough, except for Traci Bingham, they were all water signs! I liked Ron Jeremy. You can tell he is pretty bright and has beautiful eyes. I liked Tami Faye, too. Erik Estrada played the father figure well and I loved how Vanilla thought of him as a brother. Traci seemed like a nice person, but does have a wild streak. Trishelle does drink a lot but that "intervention" by Sally Jesse Raphael rattled her. I would show Trishelle or anyone who drinks a photo of Brigitte Neilsen (season 3) who has not aged well. I was appalled how 'Gitte would drink and pass out, leaving the Dave Coultier with the work of leading the musicians through rehearsal, compete by acting like an idiot on stage, then hug those little boys on her team while dressed totally inappropriately. Now, there's someone who needs an intervention.
