The Real World: D.C. has been kind of boring to the point of being unwatchable (which is saying a lot, coming from me), but last night's episode featured such a shocking act of violence that sucked me back in.
On last night's episode, a male roommate told Callie—who struggles with body image issues—that she wasn't skinny enough to pose for Playboy, essentially pouring salt on the wounds she incurred from being the daughter of an aerobics instructor.
In this week's compilation of pop culture crap, Mariah Carey explains her drunken acceptance speech, Dixie Carter is an advocate for spastic necks, and Heidi Fleiss thanks God for abortions.
Last night's episode showed Andrew making unwelcome advances on his roommate. He's fashioned himself as the goofy, politically incorrect guy, but his seriousness about getting laid—and his cartoons for his college paper—make him seem like the creepy guy.
Tomorrow night is the premiere of the 23rd season of The Real World. A 10,000-square-foot mansion in Dupont Circle will house a motley crew—two bisexuals, a few artists, and a former cult member—in their early 20s.
