I get why some people are against Real World filming in DC. Occasionally a film crew and annoying scantily clad young things will take over a favorite bar or restaurant. But really, doesn’t the knowledge that people outside the Beltway are interested in DC make you a smidge happy?! I know I will do my fair share of complaining if my night gets turned around because of Real World, but I think it may be worthwhile. Plus, I am sure the cast will mostly venture to places I wouldn’t dream of visiting, so most likely no loss there. 

I am open to admitting it if I turn out to be wrong and the Real World presence is really annoying. But as long as they don’t live next door (which it sounds like they won’t), I think I’m ok. Check out the picture of the house they may occupy here!

The most surprising thing about all this Real World gossip, is how friends that I thought would love the idea, seem to hate it. I mean I’m going to have to really pick the brain of one friend who is even writing for The Anti-Real World DC. We’re going to  have to have a heart to heart over a lot of wine!

My take is positive at this point. I mean they can only add excitement to the city, right?

    i think it’s awesome! especially if they found space right in the heart of the city. recently on the shows it hasn’t looked like the cast was really participating in the city they lived in, if they were in dupont it would really “count” not like some random warehouse on the outskirts.

    and yes i have watched every real world season and love them.

    Love it!! The city should have big community events to watch the season premier. Don’t you think?!

    Well obviously I dissagree, but I for sure won’t begrudge those that are excited about it.

    I just wouldn’t want to the level of DC’s “cool factor” to be attributed to how many reality shows are filming here.

    Haha! I still need to hear you say it face-to-face!

    I think it’s cool. It’s not like it’s gonna mess up the city or anything. I mean we are the nation’s capital. If any Real World season deserved to be made, it’s here. And think about it, they’ve already done NY three times already. I knew that eventually they would come here…they already hit up most major cities in the states, might as well go to DC!!!!
