I cried while rewatching “Real World: New Orleans” Complete Season

For those of you who want to watch it, it is here on YouTube.

Omg. Idk why but rewatching it for the first time since 2002 (I remember the last time I watched it) brought back so many memories. The nostalgia hit me hard and I got teary eyed.

I loved this show back then and still love these old seasons. God. So many memories.

I was 14 when this originally Aired.

Rewatch with me guys. Let’s watch our fav cast mates, out of David, Jamie, Danny, Matt, Melissa, Julie or Kellie. Love this cast. Love my Danny.

I loved Real World because it really did put different young people from different backgrounds in the same house to live. A fantastic experiment.

I remember being repulsed by David when this originally aired but while watching now I am like “damn, he’s sexy”. It must be the personality that killed it for me. But he seems super cool at first. Idk why he becomes antisocial with the cast eventually.

Melissa is annoying. I always found her annoying.

Danny made a big deal out of his secret and no one cares lmao.

I laughed when Kellie and Danny are in bed together and Jamie is gonna sleep with Kellie, then he walks in, sees Danny there, then walks out lmao.

My favorite seasons are 11 and 12.

11 (Chicago) is the final season that followed the original format and then 12 (Las Vegas) changed the franchise forever and made it about hot people fucking.

It’s like day 1 and Danny is already going crazy because he is so horny. And we are surprised he is a whore? Watch episode 1. He was already going nuts by how horny he was and it was the first or second day.

I loved Julie crying and admitting how when she first saw David she brushed him off immediately in her mind. Love that she realized that natural way we can be racist.

She doesn't seem so bad. She was raised a certain way and learning about life outside of her Mormon bubble. I do not see what is bad about that.

Jamie is 100% hotter than Danny. I used to think it was Danny but while rewatching, wow, Jamie was gorgeous. Danny is pretty in the face but has no sex appeal, ironically, as he was a whore who was going crazy from his horniness while only being there for 1 day. Kellie even said thank God they didn't have a second gay roommate because then they would never see Danny, he would be locked in the closet fucking the other gay lol. She also referred to him as a sex-pot, and that scene where she asks his boyfriend if he would be ok with Danny hooking up with other guys while there, you could tell Danny asked her to do that. The way he kept looking at her and then the boyfriend.

I tried to rewatch a season where they were in Europe somewhere? Paris? With Ace?

There was this thicker basic white whiny brat girl and I think this black guy was like you can't get a guy like Ace. And she was like what? I can get Ace. Then pouting because she could not get Ace.

Then they went to Italy and she met Gisuppe and things were great with him. At the time I thought this show was so amazing but looking back I see a bunch of idiots kids.

I don't know how anyone can watch all of these episodes. Again. The premise of when people stop being polite and start being real? Wtf was that? Like you're not real unless there's some shitty drama going on? Being polite and kind is is rare and one if the only nice things we have to keep us going. It's not rewatching spoiled brats who contribute NOTHING back to the real world.

I bought the complete first season in New York on DVD at Amoeba on Sunset (RIP) for $3.99, which was my favorite season and cast.

I found out later that the music rights were only cleared for broadcasting on MTV, and replaced with generic, soundalike songs for physical product and syndication, which takes away a lot of the appeal. There were so many early 90s songs throughout the first season that it's very noticeable when they are removed.

R77/R84 I will always love Trishelle for her epic joint-win on FEAR FACTOR. She was way more interesting and fun to watch on that than on RW, and proved how tough she was.

iirc during a vignette on one episode she accidentally(?) outed Mike the Miz as bi (they were recent amicable exes at the time of filming). That in itself is a gift to us all.

And now she’s high on the hog. Not bad going for a third-string Playmate stunt double.

I never disliked David. He was an arrogant asshole but his story was interesting. He expressed having a sick mother back home in the ghetto and not having money, so doing all he can to make money vs the rest of the house (all white minus Melissa) whose issues were very stupid compared to his, and out drinking every night.

I mean you have David with a sick mom and broke trying to make it and then you have Danny, whose biggest issue is how horny he is and trying not to cheat on his boyfriend. Lol.

Julie turned out to be an evil cunt. Julie and Melissa came out of that show BFFs but Julie sabotaged that quickly. When Melissa would tell her she got personal appearance gigs that paid, Julie would call and offer herself at a cheaper rate. Melissa found out from one of the promoters who called her and said why is this chick trying to undercut you? She proved she would do anything to get ahead when she tried to kill Veronica in the challenge. She literally tried to kill her by removing her safety vest in a challenge where they were hanging 100 feet above the street. She then claimed she didn't know she could not do that as Veronica was screaming at her to please not do that and begging production to stop her. The entire cast was yelling at Julie to stop as Veronic cried and she just kept going.

I was around 12-13 when Back to New York aired. Coral had a big impact on me as a gayling, she wasn't even an out lesbian then. Coral really didn't take no shit and I loved it.

Years later on Being Bobby Brown, Whitney Houston quoted Coral when she told Julie "I beat bitches down!", in response to Julie saying she wanted to wrestle. That shit had me rolling.
