Real Worlder: MTV “fuck[s] you for three months”

The reality of being an MTV reality star, especially on a has-been series, has set in for some of The Real World DC‘s cast members.

Having not been invited to the MTV Movie Awards Sunday, where the Jersey Shore cast was in attendance, cast member Mike Manning tweeted (and self-censored): “Reason 19 Why I’m mad at MTV: Like a bad Ex. they F*** you for 3.5 months nd don’t even invite u 2 the Award Show after the breakup.”

It’s not clear if the “fucks you for three months” comment was a reference to three months of pleasure or being screwed in a bad way. He wrote earlier, “Love u @MTV but today, um suck it” and “Denied to the @MTV Movie Awards. Lame. Maybe I’ll bring a teddybear and pretend i’m w snookie.”

His fellow cast member, Ashley Lindley, tweeted, “It’s cool boyfriend we’ll remember the snub later. I feel like #fuckmtv needs to be a twitter trend.”

Surprisingly, man not eaten alive on Eaten Alive

Eaten Alive

Discovery Channel’s happy family holiday special Eaten Alive aired Sunday, rewarding viewers for their two full hours of viewing by ensuring that they spent quality time in the company of others instead of wasting that time doing something else that might not have been as satisfying, such as buying things that have labels which accurately reflect their contents.
