MTV Is Bringing ‘TRL’ Back!

Image result for trl

Know what one of my favorite childhood memories was? Being in the crowd at ‘TRL’, that’s right little six year old me pushed my way through the streets of New York, okay my dad did, but I pushed my way through and got to see Damien Fahey through the large window of the ‘TRL’ studios as he waved to the crowd.

It looks like MTV knows how hot nostalgia is right now though because they are bringing back the show that made it all happen. It made music videos happen, it made superstars happen, just a show that absorbed all of the pop culture it possibly could.

MTV recently announced that they would be starting the pop culture phenomenon back up in October. It will be in New York City but it doesn’t look like it will be in the same studio which is a damn shame.

The channel announced that they will be on television as well as other social media platforms.

No, I will not be a host and I am pissed.

Interview With Alex Murrel From ‘Laguna Beach’!

Image result for alex m laguna beach

Let’s be clear, ‘Laguna Beach’ was one of the best reality television shows ever to grace our televisions.

It opened up the doors to all of those semi-scripted looking shows, although the cast of ‘Laguna’ have said that they were never handed scripts. Instead they had to recreate different things that happened when cameras weren’t rolling.

Well, 13 years after it premiered I would definitely say that the show still has such a part in pop culture. It showed all different kinds of teenage angst, friendship, and the soundtrack was so dope.

The show is iconic, that simple.

If you say that something is “dunzo”, there is a 99% chance that people will recognize it from Kristin’s car breaking down on the highway. Even now MTV gets a huge spike whenever they do their throwback weekends of the show.

Now, I just started an Instagram account Laguna_biotch (if you aren’t following it you should) and one night I got a little brave and asked Alex M for an interview. That’s right, the Alex M who took no shit from anyone and taught us all to stand up for ourselves. Well,taught teenage girls in the early 2000’s to do so. Luckily, to my surprise she agreed to answer a few questions for a small website trying to make it big.

1) Did you think 13 years later ‘Laguna Beach’ would still be such a staple in pop culture and people would still be talking about it? 

Alex: It literally blows my mind! People will come up to me and say “I loved you on Laguna” and honestly, I’m always so surprised. To think 14 years later people still recognize me or care about the show really does show what a pop culture icon it was!

2) Do you think that you were accurately portrayed on the show?

Alex: I think when you are 18 and your life is on camera, you tend to do things you probably wouldn’t have done had you been a little more mature. I tried to stay true to myself while filming and not waiver from that. I do feel that editing was a major role in ‘Laguna’ and creating characters is just standard when producing a “reality” show- people wouldn’t be interested if there was no drama.

Things were definitely exaggerated and editing made it seem as if it happened in one day. I think if you are a true ‘Laguna’ fan you can pin point where the editors messed up. All in all, I do not think I was accurately portrayed- I’m much nicer than they made me out to be.

3) How was life immediately after Laguna Beach, the backlash, the rumors, things like that?

Alex: Life was crazy to say the least. I had gone to college right after the show aired. My college roommates at the time would have viewing parties, girls would run in and leave stuff at my door and I would get love or hate notes on my car. It was crazy! I ended up moving to LA pretty soon after to pursue music instead and even that was a whirlwind. I think I was naïve going into this experience not to think the “15 min” of fame would follow but it was a great experience and even with the good and bad, I still wouldn’t trade it for the world. I honestly miss it.

4) *NSYNC or Backstreet Boys, I just feel like I have to ask anyone who grew up in the late 90’s/early 2000’s that question. 

Alex: I have to say Backstreet Boys only because Nick’s sister, Angel is a good friend of mine and my old roommate

So there you have it folks, a short interview with an absolutely iconic reality star. You can say I am wrong but we all remember the Cabo fight between her and Jessica, or her standing up to Casey.

What is Alex up to now? She and Morgan S, you know the Morgan who was friends with both cliques and never got enough screen-time? Well, they are still besties and run a marketing company called MOX Agency together.

To keep up with Alex you can follow her on Instagram where she posts adorable photos of her son.

Everyone remembers Whitney Port, right? She was basically the moral compass when it came to ‘The Hills’ and she even had her own short lived spin-off called ‘The City’.

Well the former reality star turned blogger and author welcomed a baby boy with her husband Tim Rosenman. Of course her former co-star Lauren Conrad also welcomed a baby boy earlier this money.

Lauren Conrad & William Tell Welcome Baby Boy!

Today is truly a big day for America, our all-time favorite reality star has welcomed her first baby into this world! Is there anything sweeter than that?

LC is a forever pop culture icon and now she has a little baby boy who is probably going to be dressed better than any other baby out there.

She and William named their little body Liam James Tell.

Congrats to the family!

It is sad to report that Big Black, from ‘Rob and Big’ fame has passed away at the age of only 45 years old.

Although there has been no official cause of death, many sites are reporting that it was in fact due to a heart attack.

Big was of course Rob’s bodyguard and best friend before tension caused the show to end abruptly.

The two eventually were able to clear the air and Big then appeared on a few episodes of ‘Fantasy Factory’.

Before becoming a reality show star, Big served in the Navy for nine years.

He leaves behind a nine year old daughter.

Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino has found himself in a pretty serious situation.

This is something that happen when you make a shit ton of money and don’t know how to handle your money. So this is a PSA to anyone who might be getting paid on a reality show right now. Be smart with your money because it won’t last forever unless you’re a Kardashian.

Okay, now that I got that off my chest, The Situation is facing serious jail time alongside his brother are currently facing charges for tax evasion, financial structuring and falsifying records.

According to Deadline, he could be in jail for up to 15 years or more if he is found guilty of these charges.

He and his brother Marc are set to appear in court on April 17th.

Now that’s a situation.

Are ‘Real World’ Alum Madison Channing Walls & ‘Teen Mom 2’ Star Javi Marroquin Dating?

So it looks like one of the hottest crossovers in MTV history is currently happening if you are looking at social media.

Madison is famous for starring on ‘Real World : Skeletons’ and being open about her past dru guse, Javi is famous for being one of the dads on ‘Teen Mom 2’.

There have been a bit of speculation about these two since they have been flirting a bit on Twitter but over the weekend it looks like Madison flew out to Philadelphia to spend the weekend with Javi!

Listen I am all about this couple. Madison got totally fucked over by her ex-baby daddy Tony and it seems like Javi has been put through the ringer with his ex-wife Kailynn. So they both deserve to be with someone who treated them right!

Check out their cute photos that were taken over the weekend and you make the call! I am going to guess that soon enough they will announce that they are together.

🙃
