Real World Philly cast’s job ends today.
Assuming they haven’t already been fired for being incompetent and lazy, The Real World Philadelphia cast’s last day on the job is today, and they’ll likely be moving out soon, if they’re not gone already. The show debuts on Sept. 14, but next Monday, the season will be previewed on MTV. (Don’t expect to see much of Dan Renzi, who participated in the preview show. He who writes in his blog, “I think I’ll be edited out of most of it anyway” because “[s]ometimes things fly out of my mouth and I just can’t help it.” Overall, he says “it’s a lot of the same stuff: the black guy is angry, the white girl is misunderstood, the whole cast is pretty.”) So what will happen to the Philadelphia crew’s house, the “former Seamen’s Church Institute (3rd & Arch),” after the cast leaves and it’s fumigated and bleached? According to the Philadelphia Daily News, “A spokesman for its owner, Yaron Properties, says the company is fielding offers from retail stores and corporations that want to occupy the space. The furnishings will be left behind, but don’t expect a ‘Real World’ tourist trap, as Yaron Properties is contractually forbidden from capitalizing on ‘The Real World’ that way.”
