Big Brother 12 live blog and reality blurred’s 10th anniversary Q&A

Tonight at 7:30 p.m. ET, it’s time for another live blog, and this one is a two-parter: First, since reality blurred is roughly 9 years, 364 days old today, I present my first-ever Q&A. Since questions have come up in the middle of live blogs in the past, I thought we’d just do a half-hour of questions and, if I feel like it, answers. Ask me whatever you want: about reality TV, the site, et cetera.

Then, at 8, we’ll tune in together and watch the first episode of Big Brother 12 to find out what cheesy lines the producers had the contestants say to introduce themselves, and to find out who we love and who we hope never reproduces. (If you’d like to see what the deal with a live blog is, here’s the American Idol finale live blog.)

Get a reminder e.mail in the box below, and I’ll see you at 7:30 ET (4:30 PT).
