Danny will return to Melinda because of the preview trailer which shows him returning

The question on everyone's mind is will Danny (Austin) return to his roommates... Highlight to read:

If you go over to MTV.com and check out the season trailer, near the end of the trailer, there's a voiceover from Danny talking to Melinda telling her that the only reason he came back was to be with her.

Landon opens a new website; Melissa, Trishelle, Mike, Theo, Coral appear on BONRS

Landon (Philadelphia) is the first castmember on his season to open a website. Check out landonlueck.net.

Also, Battle of the Network Reality Stars is premiering next Wednesday on Bravo. The show is getting a lot of attention in recent days leading up to its premiere. The show will feature Melissa (New Orleans), Theo (Maximum Velocity Tour), Coral (Back to New York), Mike (Back to New York) and Trishelle (Las Vegas) as a sideline reporter. Although initial reports had the four teaming up as their own "Real World/Road Rules" team, there are actually four teams of eight contestants, with each team vying for a $80,000 prize package. The classic format should have the cast teaming up according to their own network. However, this seems to be a problem as the show is overrun by CBS castmembers and has only one representative from UPN and ABC each. Other participants? Nikki McKibbin (American Idol), Ryan Starr (American Idol, The Surreal Life 3), Adam Mesh (Average Joe), Charla & Mirna (Amazing Race), Chip & Kim (Amazing Race), Jonathan & Victoria (Amazing Race), Richard Hatch (Survivor), Sue Hawk (Survivor), Mike Malin (Big Brother), Will Kirby (Big Brother), Evan Marriott (Joe Millionaire)... In addition to Trishelle, Omarosa (Apprentice, The Surreal Life 5) will be one of the several others doing the commentating.

By the way, TV Guide's reason not to miss the premiere episode? The collective cast teaming up to dunk Coral (Back to New York) in the water tank because of her "abrasive personality and tiny bikini". It airs Wednesday 9pm/ET on Bravo.

Side note: Melissa (New Orleans) makes mention of an incident that happened between her, Coral and Omarosa. It's a bit of a preview as she plans to update once the show begins next week with a brand new blog. Check it out here. And also, as always, The Miz will be updating you from his online Challenge diary, where he already promises drama and competition.

Updates on the Real World London and Paris houses

Here's a Blog exclusive and an update on the two European Real World houses. Although not too exciting, it's an update on "the eighth roommates" that we don't hear much about. First up, London:

The Real World London house, which was used for filming in 1995, is located in the Notting Hill area (famous for the Hugh Grant/Julia Roberts movie of the same name) of London. Although accessible by the Underground, Notting Hill is not Central London. So if you're planning a trip, expect to go out of your way. The house is in one of the most posh neighborhoods of London. Close by are the Portobello Flea Market and two of the failed suicide bombers were actually living in this area when they were arrested by police.

Now the house itself:



No huge changes, but on the lower floor, there is now a chain film store that sells film props. The infamous small door is still in place and the house is currently being lived in.

The Paris house is actually on the outskirts of the city. Used in early 2003, the house is only accessible by a suburban commuter line that speeds through outside suburbs of Paris. The neighborhood the house was in was extremely nice, but not Real World-esque at all. Very little to do for seven twenty-somethings and the nearest tourist attractions were at least half-an-hour away. But the neighborhood had plently of chateaus and parks, ideal for upscale family living. Here's the house today:

 

The first picture is obviously the house as we left it. There's a SUV in the driveway. The house is gated off, so you can only see the house from afar. No traces of the Real World has been left behind, much like the London house. What was interesting about this house was that there was a swingset, a basketball net and plently of children's toys floating about on the yard. There was also an outside house that's in the second picture that wasn't shown much on the series. Most likely because production was headquarted there. The spa house used out front is now gone. If you have any questions or comments about the house, comments are welcome at newroad@hotmail.com.
