We can’t cover every news story ourselves. Fortunately, there are a lot of great sources for reality TV news and gossip. Check out these links from some of our favorite sites in the March 3 edition of Tuesday Morning Tea.
Whether you agree with the results or not, the people have spoken. The People’s Choice Awards went down on November 10 and there were some big winners in the reality TV categories. And even the people who didn’t win showed up
to get some press enjoy the party.
I’m not gonna lie, I wish I got an invite because there were cast members from some of my favorite shows in attendance and I would just love to see them all interact. Real Housewives, Vanderpump Rules, The Bachelor, and Keeping Up With the Kardashians cast members showed up for the award show.
Confession: I can sit through 1oo’s of hours of “unscripted television,” but I have never once made it through an awards show. Except maybe the MTV VMAs one year while I was in college. And even then, I only made it through because I was too hung over to move from the couch where my roommates were watching.
However, I do find the People’s Choice Awards fascinating. Because the awards are voted on by the viewers, it makes for some… interesting results. For example, last year’s nominees for “Drama Movie of the Year” included Red Sparrow and A Quiet Place – both legitimate movies with plots and acting and character development. Wanna know what movie won? “Fifty Shades Freed.” That’s right, we the viewers chose soft porn over a movie starring Academy Award-winning Jennifer Lawrence and one starring America’s favorite human, Jim Halpert. America’s voting habits make me nervous.
Love him or hate him, it is pretty interesting that The Apprentice star Donald Trump went from being a reality TV star to a presidential candidate. It got me thinking about celebrities that I enjoy watching on reality TV who I would love to see run for president.
To make it clear, I don’t necessarily think any of these people should actually be president, just that it definitely would have been entertaining if we had them in the mix at some point during the nomination and election processes. Also, this list is meant to be a complete joke, so chill out with the political commentary and just have fun with the “what if” political possibilities.

MTV’s ridiculous competition show is back for an umpteenth season! A new Real World Challenge, aptly titled “The Challenge: Battle of the Seasons,” will feature twenty-eight of the original reality show’s
has-beens stars competing for a $250,000 cash prize in Bodrum, Turkey. The competition always boasts ridiculous and heart-pounding challenges, but people tend to tune in more for the house drama, hook-ups, and fighting.
This season premieres on September 19th , and it will pit newbie housemates against players who try to make a living off of their Real World fame and winning these crazy competitions. For example, veteran Wes Bergmann can’t wait to face-off against his former Austin roommates Lacey Buehler and the now divorced Danny Jamieson and Melinda Stolp.
In the preview trailer, Wes reveals, “These people really are as dumb as they look.” Ahh, yes, Wes. Yes, they are. San Diego’s Ashley Kelsey agrees, stating, “I feel like I’m living in an insane asylum!”

Get ready for more Reality TV dramz with MTV’s The Challenge: Rivals starring former MTV Real World & Road Rules castmembers.
With over $300,000 on the line there is bound to be conflict galore as the teams fight tooth and nail for prize money and glory. MTV takes 14 teams of men and women to the jungles of Costa Rica for a series of intense challenges requiring endurance, stamina, bravery, and cunning!
Expect lots of fighting, lots of backstabbing and tantrums, relationships forming and falling apart, and old rivalries reigniting! In fact, the drama is over the top right out of the gate as the first episode features contestants flying over a waterfall! Yikes. The series also features two castmembers from the very recent Real World Las Vegas, Adam Royer and Leroy ‘Roylee’ Garrett. Oddly enough, Adam is the only cast member not pictured above. Perhaps he got kicked off early for another drunken tantrum.
One thing is for sure if these enemies don’t put down the haterade, learn to put the past behind them, and work together – they definitely won’t be bringing home the dough! For a trailer of the upcoming series, see below! The Challenge: Rivals premieres tonight on MTV at 10pm ET/PT. The season trailer and photos of the 14 teams below!
