Thomas Ravenel’s “Southern Charm” reality television show may not be the only game in town …

Sources tell FITS a new installment of the original reality TV show – MTV’s “The Real World” – may be coming to Charleston, S.C. in the near future.

“A season of the Real World might be filmed in Charleston,” one of our source says of the long-running franchise, which first launched in 1992.

Apparently one of the show’s recent cast members – Jessica McCain – is helping to organize the effort in conjunction with the city’s hospitality industry and owners of local bars and restaurants. McCain appeared in the 28th and most recent addition of “The Real World” – filmed in Portland, Oregon.

So far, the campaign consists of providing MTV executives with testimonials about the “Holy City” – as well as pictures and biographical information on possible cast members.

“We must first raise enough interest for it to be filmed here,” one of the effort’s ringleaders wrote in an email.

Ravenel’s “Southern Charm” – which will air on Bravo later this year – has generated tremendous buzz within the Palmetto political community. It has also apparently piqued the interest of the MTV producers.

Wait, what? They haven’t cancelled The Real World yet? Oh, yeah, that’s right, MTV still airs it because it isn’t music.

Can we just go ahead and sever Charleston from the rest of the state? I’m sure the SOBs from SOB would be fine with it as well.

There are reasons that film/TV producers don’t feature Columbia, the screen door to Hell.

Mr. Happy July 26, 2013 at 11:44 am

So would appropriately naming Columbia- Douchetown run by blacks, make Charleston any less douchey?

Reply

Culture in SC does not exist beyond the Low Country. Columbia has no “industry” except government and those who are not in government but spend their time talking about government and/or sucking on government’s teat.

When The Smashing Pumpkins played at the Township Auditorium in 2000 and failed to sell it out, I should have moved soon after.

There is no culture in SC. Not in Charleston, not in Columbia, not in Greenville. Just one big cultural waste land. Too much cousin marrying, I suspect.

Check out Capt’n Stabbin if you want some great reality TV. It’s got boats, hot babes, etc. If you’re hung up on the TV thing get yourself a HDMD cable for about 20 bucks at The Shack.

Did you just fall of the turnip truck? The gay populations in places like Charleston, Atlanta, New Orleans, Key West, etc. has always been known. Nothing new there. What you miss is that the populace of those towns couldn’t care less.
