The Governor of Pennsylvania is rallying to keep Real World in Philadelphia

Looks like the rumors of Philadelphia's desire to keep The Real World in Philly are indeed true. reports that the governor of the state of Pennsylvania has personally called producers in Los Angeles to apologize for what occurred and to ask producers to reconsider their decision. Another politician, House Representative Robert Brady also called producers to request the same.

The article definitely speaks about talks that were ongoing, but many involved had declined to elaborate. But what's clear in this situation, is that chaotic arguing from the unions, the non-unions, and residents has Philly in an uproar over BMPs Tuesday decision. As it stands right now, BMP has still stood by their decision to pull out of Philadelphia.

Bunim-Murray is still engaged in negotiations with unions in Philadelphia to stay

There are inklings of information that Philly may not be a done deal yet. There are rumors going on that BMP is still engaged in negotiations with Philly labor unions. No real confirmation on this... However, another protest was held outside the now defunct Third and Arch house last night. Young Involved Philadelphia held a protest last night in front of the house to keep The Real World in Philadelphia. Although had quoted a spokeswoman for BMP as saying that they decided not to shoot in Philadelphia, there has been no official word from BMP saying that they are still considering options. Most likely, other locations are being scouted for the fifteenth season and a decision should be announced soon.

Atlanta, Providence rumored for new choices for the next season of Real World

There are rumors floating around that Bunim-Murray Productions would like to stay on the East Coast for the new season of the Real World. Two possible locations since Philadelphia got axed are Atlanta, Georgia or Providence, Rhode Island. Only time will tell if either of these choices pans out.

Bunim-Murray announces that it will pull out of Philadelphia because of union protests

In a stunning move announced just yesterday, Bunim-Murray Productions have decided to pull out of Philadelphia. You heard right, the fifteenth season of the Real World will no longer belong to Philadelphia. In an article published by, producers pulled out of the city, with 70% of principal construction completed on the house, when union protests outside the Third and Arch house apparently forced BMP to their wit's end. Taping was scheduled to begin in three weeks. Apparently, for the past fourteen seasons, producers at BMP have insisted on hiring non-union contractors to work on the house. This continued without incident, even on big cities like Chicago, Los Angeles, and New York. However, Philadelphia unions had offered the Real World producers a deal once filming started, that would include unions on production once the show began filming. BMP turned them down.

If you remember, this is not the first time The Real World has encountered protests at their door. Back in the Chicago season, the house was hounded by protestors demanding that the Real World leave the Wicker Park section of the city. After castmembers were hassled, arrests were made, and even red paint was splattered on the infamous orange front door, producers decided to stick it out in Chicago. "After considerable evaluation, we are disappointed to announce that Bunim/Murray Productions has decided not to shoot The Real World in Philadelphia," a spokeswoman for BMP said Tuesday. Most likely, this will push back filming a few more weeks to a yet unnamed location

Real World Houses

The new season isn't being filmed until April but already it is making waves. For the past two weeks, the local carpenters' union has set up shop in front of the new house. They are protesting the use of a non-union contractor to prepare the house for the arrival of the seven strangers. Negotiations are being made as we speak to limit the number of pickets and keep the crowds down.
