The trailer for the new season of The Real World premiered last night after Jersey Shore! The 25th season starts on March 9 on MTV.
Season 25 returns to Sin City! “Everything in Vegas is on a grander scale, and that comes through loud and clear this season,” MTV told People in a statement. “Romance among the cast members is at an all time high, and as secrets each cast member has brought with them are revealed, those relationships will be challenged and tested.”
The seven new roommates — Nany, Adam, Michael, Naomi, Dustin, Leroy and Heather — will live in a suite at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. Season 25 will premiere in March.
Season 12 of the reality series also filmed in Las Vegas back in 2002, but at the Palms Casino and Resort.
Random: I ran into Brynn (bottom: second from left) at a kids pizza place last year. I gawked at her like she was an actual celebrity. She probably wondered WTH was wrong with me.

Apparently the new reality show that Lauren Conrad has been busy filming for MTV has just been axed – due to the “high brow” content. Lauren wanted a show about her career – MTV wanted a show about Lauren.
Lauren Conrad’s upcoming MTV reality show has been pulled, the fashion designer tells The Hollywood Reporter.
“We sold a show to MTV, filmed it and are really proud of the final result,” she tells THR. “MTV felt the subject matter was too high brow for their audience and offered me the opportunity to change the show by incorporating more of my personal life.”
The show was to follow her as she creates a line of evening wear and launches her label.
“We agreed going into the project that this show would be an aspirational one, focusing on my career and my goals and not my personal relationships,” Conrad tells THR. “We delivered the show that we sold and are sorry MTV didn’t feel their viewers were savvy enough to appreciate it.”
What’s your take? Would you have liked seeing a show about Lauren and her career? Or are you more interested in the drama? Whitney Port’s show “The City” was a show about Whitney’s fashion line – and that show was canceled. Guess MTV wasn’t interested in a repeat?
MTV viewers weren’t the only ones who refused to give up on now-married Teen Mom 2 stars, Leah and Corey Simms.
The 20-year-old certified water-distribution operator — who has 13-month-old twins Aliannah and Aleeah with Leah — insists in the new issue of Us Weekly (on stands now) that “he always knew we were going to get back together.”
Ultimately the turning point for the duo, who wed in October, was watching daughter Ali’s health struggle.
“Whenever she came home from a doctor’s appointment all upset, it hit me that Ali needs both of us together,” says Corey. “I knew that if we had Ali in a split-up home, that wouldn’t help her at all.”
MTV is not having a good week. Yesterday it was announced that several major advertisers pulled their ads due to the content of the show. Today – it was reported that ‘Skins‘ plunged 52% in the ratings for it’s second episode. The series premiere last week drew in 3.3 million – and last night’s episode delivered 1.6 million viewers. Ouch. EW explains why they think the show dropped so drastically:
– No Shore. The Skins premiere had a 7-million-plus lead-in from an original episode of Jersey Shore, while last night only had a Shore repeat. With that kind of huge initial push, the network expected at least some ratings decline.
– The controversy: Could accusations that the show is basic cable kiddie porn have hurt the numbers? Controversy can often improve a show’s turnout, but in this case, there may be an “ick factor” that did Skins more harm than good.
– The show itself: Ken Tucker noted last night’s episode came off “more like a mediocre episode of Degrassi” than the terrific British version (despite one character masturbating to a poster of Audrey Hepburn).
Yesterday, Skins creator Bryan Elsley defended the show as “rather old fashioned” while more advertisers dropped out. So far, MTV is weathering the storm and waiting to see what happens next.
I agree with one commenter who posted on ICYDK earlier. She said despite all the controversy – the show is just plain bad! It’s not acted well, it’s not written well – it’s obvious the main goal here is to “shock”.
I’m thinking ‘Skins’ won’t be around much longer. Did you watch last night’s episode? Was it any better?
