Julie is getting married to her new boyfriend Spencer

Julie (New Orleans) has recently broke the news that she is getting married to her new boyfriend Spencer. Check out her site for details. Congratulations to Julie and Spencer and we wish them the best!

Philadelphia's timeslot given to the VMAs; Extreme will soon end; Battle of the Sexes 2 to begin

For those of you who were smitten by the Philadelphia cast in last night's episode, you're going to have wait two weeks until you see a Real World episode. Even though the VMAs officially air this Sunday night, MTV took the Tuesday timeslot next week and gave it to a replay of the VMAs. The first episode airs September 7.

As for filming, there are no Real World or Road Rules series that are currently filming. Xtreme, which was filmed earlier this year, will end its run in the next two months. The next challenge, Battle of the Sexes 2 which filmed in Galisteo, NM last month, will begin airing on MTV following the end of Road Rules.

As for future seasons of Real World and Road Rules, the sixteenth season of The Real World had officially begun casting last month. There is no official word as of yet as to which city hosts number sixteen, but previous contenders have been known to include Sydney, Washington DC, Austin, Boulder, Atlanta and Knoxville. Road Rules XIV should begin filming alongside Real World XVI, although no official comment has come from BMP about the next season of Road Rules. And there was talk about another Challenge to be filmed immediately following Battle of the Sexes 2, but no move has been made by BMP and production has been pushed back indefinitely. That being said, there probably will not be much info made available about new seasons within the next few months.

And time for some alumni news: Cara (South Pacific) will be joining the ranks of such alumni as Beth (Los Angeles), Flora (Miami), Veronica (Semester at Sea), Jisela (The Quest), Katie (The Quest), Arissa (Las Vegas), Trishelle (Las Vegas) and Marybeth (South Pacific) as the latest girl to pose in Playboy magazine. However, Cara will get a special spot in the magazine as she will be Playboy's Miss October and will get the chance to be Playboy's Playmate of the Year. Beth, Flora, Veronica and Jisela were a part of a special feature of the magazine, while Katie, Arissa and Trishelle all took part in a DVD.(which is available in our store) Marybeth posed for the online magazine. Cara would mark the first time as an alumni making it as a Playboy centerfold. Congratulations to Cara!

Dan, Ruthie, Steven, Trishelle and San Diego cast weigh in on the new Philadelphia season

For those of you checking out the Blog before the Preview Special airs on MTV tonight, a preview of the preview special was aired on TRL today. In addition to Dan (Miami), Cameran (San Diego) and Jamie (San Diego), the preview special will hear what Ruthie (Hawaii), Steven (Las Vegas), Trishelle (Las Vegas) and what the rest of the San Diego has to say about the new Philadelphia season.

The cast shows up with Bon Jovi over at WireImage

If you head over to Wireimage, you can see photos of Bon Jovi and the Philadelphia cast at a press conference yesterday. (Search for Bon Jovi or MTV Real World.) The cast's job in the later part of the show was to build a playground with the Soul Community Outreach Program. They held a press conference to open the playground yesterday.

Preview episode of Philadelphia airs tonight; Coral and Abram may be dating

The preview episode of The Real World XV: Philadelphia will air tonight. Expect to see snippets of the new season and old castmembers talk, talk, talk about the new roomies.

And I've been receiving numerous sightings of two very suspicious alumni. We're all hearing rumors that Coral (Back to New York) and Abram (South Pacific) are dating. They actually started something secretly during the Inferno and apparently we're supposed to see something of their romance in Battle of the Sexes 2. However, many people have been catching both Coral and Abram out in public, schmoozing it up, in each other's arms. Well, the latest sighting was the most interesting as someone spotted the couple at Disney's California Adventure with none other than Abram's parents. Good luck to those two and we'll see them on the Battle this fall!

New York Post details Philadelphia cast; The cast may have two gay male castmembers

The NYPost published a very interesting article today. The castmembers moved out over the last two days and are currently in the middle of press week, so there will be lots of stories on the seven strangers over the next week. But the article does reveal some interesting tidbits about the new season. already confirmed that Willy was the gay castmember. But, The Real World will make history this season with two gay men on the show. (Chicago had two gay people, male and female.) However, you may seem to notice that the fact was left out of the MTV profiles, because the person "(as yet unidentified)... tackles coming out of the closet on the show."

This actually wouldn't be the first time someone "came out" on the show. If you remember way back when, five seasons ago in New Orleans, editors portrayed Danny as "straight" on the casting special. On the first episode, they made it seem like Danny "came out" in between the end of casting finals and the start of filming the show. (Viewers later found out that it was a ploy of producers and that Danny had came out before the casting of the show.)

There was speculation on The Real World Philly Boards that Karamo was gay and Sarah is quoted in the article as saying, "We have political debates, and there are issues of race and sexuality with two gay men in the house." She also comments on how all the castmembers are all over 21, five are all over 23. There is also talk about the fight involving Shavonda and Landon, a romance in the house, the set-up of the Seamen's Insitute, and how the cast got tattoos in Fiji. Check out the article here.

Philadelphia profiles are up; Yes is on the Driving Votes Caravan

Over the weekend, MTV posted up profiles of the seven strangers and should be posting information on Battle of the Sexes relatively soon. The premiere special with Dan (Miami), Cameran (San Diego) and Jamie (San Diego) (amongst others) will be airing tomorrow night.

And an update on a former castmember: Yes (Semester At Sea) is traveling with the Driving Votes RV Caravan. He's working hard to register voters in swing states just in time for the upcoming Presidential election. He left Seattle on Friday and will arrive in New York next week in time for the RNC after registering voters in Missouri, Ohio, and Pennsylvania. Anyone and everyone is invited to come meet up with Yes at the Driving Votes RV at each stop! Here is a schedule of meet-up dates and locations.

For those of you that are American citizens and are over 18, be sure to register to vote in time for the Presidential election in November. Be sure to register especially if you live in the following states: FL, NM, WI, IA, OR, NH, MN, MI, OH, NV, TN, PA. Go to either Rock the Vote or Declare Yourself to learn more about how to register to vote.
