    Philly is Still the Place for the 'Real World'

    March 24, 2004 -- 'THE Real World" is going back to Philadelphia after all.
    After days of tense negotiations, several high-ranking Pennsylvania politicians - including the state's governor, a congressman and Philly Mayor John Street - have brokered a deal between the show's producers and local unions to restart work on the MTV reality show's 15th season.

    "Recognizing the economic impact 'The Real World' can have on our city and state, I am thrilled that the young people's voices have been heard and we were all able to come together," Pennsylvania Gov. Edward Rendell said in a prepared statement.

    "Real World" producers had pulled the plug on the show last week when local unions protested the production's use of non-union workers to refurbish a church in which the show's cast members will live.

    A local activist group called Young Involved Philadelphia played an "important role" in helping the two sides come to an agreement, according to a statement from "Real World" producers. The group had organized a rally to urge local and state politicians to get involved in the negotiations.

    Over the years, "The Real World" has run into its share of controversy. Last season in San Diego, two cast members were arrested while out clubbing and police are still investigating an alleged rape that took place inside the ritzy waterfront house where the cast lived.

    ugh. I don't get time to watch TV anymore, much less hang out at the FORT.

    But don't you worry, I'll be back in full force on or about November 3rd.

    There is just something wrong about this.
