Back in 1992, MTV launched a little reality show called The Real World. For three months, everyone was captivated by the roommates’ lives. Therefore, you would think when the show ended; the cast would have no problem getting jobs. It was quite the opposite for everyone who wasn’t named Eric Nies.

Yesterday, the seven houseguests were on Shade 45, and he wanted to know what their lives were like after the show ended. Julie Gentry told him she was trying to make it as a dancer in NYC. However, she kept getting rejected from jobs because she Julie from The Real World. Since she needed to pay the rent, she took a job as a temp for MTV and Viacom to pay the bills. She says it was better than working as a waitress and having people recognize there.

Even though she had a rough time after the show, it all turned out OK for her. As we learned last week on The Real World Homecoming: New York, she is happily married with children.


Why didn’t Eric Nies return to the Real World loft?

Today, Paramount got into the streaming business with Paramount+. One of the first shows to debut on the streaming service was a reunion from one of the first reality shows to grace our televisions.

In 1992, we got to know Norman Korpi, Julie Gentry, Becky Blasband, Kevin Powell, Andre Comeau, Heather Gardner, and Eric Nies on The Real World. Back in January, they all got together again for six days to film The Real World Homecoming: New York in the same loft from 28 years ago.

Well, almost everyone. Six houseguests moved in, but one was missing. That person is Eric Nies. Did the model turn host get bitten by the Divo bug and refuse to do it? Far from it. He got bit by a different bug; he tested positive for COVID-19 and was forced to quarantine in a hotel. He is still part of the reunion, but from a safe distance away from his former roommates.

When it comes to the first episode, they are still nice to each other. It could be because they are older, or it could be that they are still being polite. Hopefully, next week they will start getting real. Who doesn’t love reality show drama? That is why we are still watching Real World after all of these decades. Do you feel old?

Talking about old, let’s talk about how great they all look. They aged a little, but they all still look great. I would still be able to pick them all out in a crowd.

On March 4th, the original cast of The Real World is moving back in together after 29 years. Find out what happens when people stop being polite and start getting real, Now that they are almost 30 years older.

Back when the show that launched reality TV, their ages ranged from 19-26. Now, they are 48-55 years old. Did they gain wisdom with age? According to the trailer, they didn’t. In fact, when they were younger, they were more willing to learn new things. Today, they are set in their ways.

What will happen seven people from different lifestyles move into together after nearly 3 decades apart? We will find out on Paramount+ next week.

I know I can’t wait to see the tears, the fights, and the hugs. Hopefully, this social experiment will teach us how to get along and not tear us apart. If seven people can live together and not kill one another, why can’t we?

There have been rumors for almost three years that Kelsey Grammer wanted to bring back his character Fraiser Crane in a sequel series. The rumors are true, and it is coming to Paramount+.

“Having spent over 20 years of my creative life on the Paramount lot, both producing shows and performing in several, I’d like to congratulate Paramount+ on its entry into the streaming world,” said Kelsey Grammer. “I gleefully anticipate sharing the next chapter in the continuing journey of Dr. Frasier Crane.”

As of now, they have not announced if any of the show’s original stars will be part of the reboot. Without them, I have no faith in the show. Grammer might think it was all about him, but it was also about his castmembers’ chemistry with him.

Would you watch Frasier if it is just Frasier?

One of the biggest shows on CBS All Access is The Twilight Zone. Therefore, you would think that they would want a new season on the rebranded Paramount+. They do, but there is a slight problem.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Executive Producers Jordan Peele and Simon Kinberg have decided that they do not want to do any more episodes. There was no reason was given for the EP’s decision.

I heard rumors that Peele wanted all of the episodes to be aired in black and white like the original run. However, they were streamed in color. It makes you wonder if he wanted things that they were not letting him do?
