Maven says he’s the reality hunk; rumor says Surreal Life 6 taping at an LA bar tonight

Tough Enough‘s Maven Huffman reports on his web site that he’s the reality “hunk” who’s taping the show. According to an article on his site,

Maven has just confirmed his newest role in the entertainment business: He is currently in California filming the new season of VH1′s “The Surreal Life”.

In other Surreal Life news, an unsubstantiated rumor has floated this way, suggesting that the cast of The Surreal Life 6 will be at an event tonight that’s open to the public.

The anonymous source, who could just be a sly club promoter trying to attract a crowd, says that the cast will show up at the Battle of the Tribute Bands today at the Key Club, located on Sunset Blvd. Doors open at 4:30 p.m., according to the tipster, and cover is apparently free. (The club’s calendar doesn’t seem to mention it.)

Show up at your own risk, but if you live in LA and head down there, feel free to report back.

Beyond the headline-grabbing premise, the series has turned out to be a stripped-down, authentic exploration of something very interesting. Read the full review.
