MTV: Invading a Borough Near You

OMG, you guys. The next Real World (21st!) is going to be....in BROOKLYN. Yeah, that's right. After already having two seasons in Manhattan, the MTV staff has decided to venture into the across the bridge. Apparently, Real World: Hollywood is doing super-well, so the MTV has green-lit season 21 (was there ever really a doubt?) and decided to, according to Jon Murray (ya know, of Murray-Bunim, the company that brought us the Real World, Road Rules, the Challenge, the Gauntlet, etc.) "focus on what people loved about 'The Real World' when it launched in 1992 - genuine people, meaningful conflict and powerful stories." Hmm, do you think "meaningful conflict" will include taking a side on the Atlantic Yards issue? Or more like, "I really wish you hadn't slept with dave since you knew we slept together the night before which I thought meant he like totally loved me and now things are totes awkward"? Only time will tell...

Oh, and this totally relates to publishing because we're all poor and can't afford to live in Manhattan, so we hang out in Brooklyn where now we will run into Real Worlders. See?
