MTV has unveiled the cast for the latest season of their long running hit – The Real World. The Real World DC is set to premier Wednesday, December 30th at 10 PM ET/PT.
This season was filmed for 3 months as production began on July 2nd, with filming wrapping up on October 12th.
MTV released the following statement regarding the new cast and season -
With high hopes and expectations, eight new roommates come to our nation’s capital for the 23rd season of The Real World, each pursuing their own passions and goals whether it be music or photography, political cartooning, or campaigning for Human Rights — while enjoying DC’s exuberant and diverse nightlife. Swept up in the excitement of the new administration to serve and impact change, the roommates experience their own personal growth and life changes: a small town Texas girl realizes her dream; the jokester of the house has to get serious when it comes to love; a dysfunctional romance threatens to divide the house; and a young man learns that coming out is not only a personal choice but a political one as well.

Things are bound to heat up on tonight’s episode of The City, as the tension mounts between Olivia Palermo and her colleague, Elle’s PR Director Erin Kaplan, over wardrobe for a television shoot.
On tonight’s episode, we get to see the two women disagree on an assignment. Erin makes an executive decision to send some of the clothes picked out by Olivia back. “I know what the producers want,” she says. “I’ve done more than my share of segments for TV.” This leaves Olivia annoyed of course, who then confronts her colleague for speaking to her dismissively. “Erin,” she asks, “would you talk to [Creative Director] Joe in the tone that you talk to me?”
“You’re not Joe,” Erin fires back. “When are you creative director of the magazine?” The argument continues as Olivia demands respect, leading Erin to then send an assistant out of the room, as the two continue to argue.
On the other side of the city, over at People’s Revolution, we get to see Roxy Olin‘s attempt to help Whitney Port/ impress her boss Kelly Cutrone fall short.
Stephanie Pratthas pleaded not guilty to a misdemeanor DUI charge in a Los Angeles court Friday and will enroll in a 30-day rehab residential facility.
The Hills star, 23, was arrested back in October in Hollywood after driving home from fellow castmate, Holly Montag‘sbirthday party. Her two breathalyzer tests registered .08 and .09 — the legal limit is .08. She was arrested and released on $5000 bail.
She recently told PEOPLE that the arrest “was the worst thing to happen to me and, at the same time, it was the biggest blessing” as a life lesson. If convicted, Stephanie faces up to six months in jail and a $1,000 fine.
According to People, Kristin is now dating Tal Cooperman, who just happens to be another ex of fellow castmate, Audrina Patridge. Tal and Audrina dated last summer.
“It’s brand new. They’re having a lot of fun enjoying getting to know each other better,” says a source of Cavallari’s relationship with Tal. “It’s not for the show. They hit it off and have been hanging out off-camera.”
Kristin and Tal allegedly enjoyed a date night Thursday in Los Angeles, during which they were spotted sharing a sushi dinner at Nobu and kissing at West Hollywood hotspot Voyeur. “They were making out on one of the club’s VIP stages after midnight,” says a clubgoer. “They were all over each other.”
It’s probably best for the human race that these folks keep their stds germs amongst their circle, as they all seem to date the same people. I haven’t been watching the Hills that much this season, but I have become a fan of The City, which seems slightly less fake than the Hills. That Olivia is quite the character, and definitely makes the show interesting.
TELL US: WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE NEW SEASON OF THE HILLS AND THE CITY?
Kristin managed to rub practically everyone the wrong way. The biggest conflict came when Kristin faced off against Audrina Patridge, who accused her of going after her on-and-off fling Justin Bobby.
In a new interview with USWeekly, Kristin dishes on Audrina and what she thought of the sixth season’s premiere episode. “I think that Audrina and Stephanie [Pratt] were very judgmental and just wrote me off right away without getting to know me,” Cavallari, 22, said on Tuesday at an event in West Hollywood.
Kristin however played coy on her reasons for going after Audrina’s ex, Justin Bobby, saying — “You’ll have to see it on the show” — revealing “the love triangle” gets “pretty dramatic” as the season progresses.
Something tells us Kristin went after Justin Bobby because the Hills’ script called for it. Kristin also manages to get a swipe in against Audrina when asked about what she thought of Audrina’s appearance, “I’m not commenting on her plastic surgery,” laughed Kristin.
Audrina however denies this report, saying “They offered me a presenting spot and I declined.”
And what does Kristin think of her new promo proclaiming her devilishly laughing in front of a sign that proclaims, “The Bitch Is Back”?
“It’s fun to play the bad girl on TV,” Kristin says. “I think it’s really funny because anyone who knows me, my good friends, would never say I’m a man-eater, a boyfriend-stealer like they’re making me out to be.”
Kristin however admits she is not friends with Audrina, “We literally just don’t see each other,” she toldUS. “I don’t have a problem with her. If she has a problem with me, that’s a whole other story.”
Kristin— who made her reality show debut at age 16 on MTV’s Laguna Beach — also says it’s fun to be back in front of the cameras.
“It’s been such a great experience for me and brought me so many opportunities,” says Kristin. “I definitely have a personal life. I only film three days a week, so I don’t put my real friends on camera because it will ruin friendships.”
Is this really going to be your last season on The Hills? Why?
You know, it’s just something that I felt inside. I’m an adult now, and I don’t need all the petty drama and drinking and fighting. I’ve done that, and I’m ready to move on.
Can you spill anything about The Audrina Show?
The producer is Mark Burnett, who executive-produced Survivor. It’s a behind-the-scenes look at my life in L.A.—the movies and shoots and parties. It’s not as glamorous as it appears, plus it’ll actually feature people I know. It’s, like, real.
