Look, we all know that none of the ensemble casts knew each other from Adam when the first season started shooting. However, relationships form when people work together. Especially when they work together year after year on a show that gives us at least a small window into their lives. Just like any other workplace, sometimes romantic relationships develop. More commonly friendships develop and occasionally people get together in between filming seasons. It’s kind of like teaching. I had strong cliques at some schools I worked at and we would often go out every Friday after work. But when summer came, we rarely talked unless there was some major gossip going on and then the next fall, we’d pick up where we left off. It’s a lot like that with filming reality shows. After months of being tied down, people want to get the hell out of dodge and take vacations and hand out with their real friends.
And then there are the drama queens. Many shows have that one person who starts screaming about how they are not sure they can endure another season with their cast mates. There are people who get fired and go on social media ragers against their on camera enemies for weeks or months after they have been let go.
Then there is that one show. For a while there, a season or two ago, this show looked like it didn’t have the ratings to return. At that time one female cast member single-handedly started a social media storm that sent rating through the roof just before the reunion. Websites everywhere were talking about the drama. We’ve basically become immune to it at this point. That drama queen that saved the show has apparently given up her role as villain for the upcoming season and we will supposedly see a more mature and sophisticated woman when the show premieres.
However, this is one of the show with male drama queens. Drama kings? This one is outraged that his newly hired fair maiden to play the role of his love interest is being maligned on social media. Here’s the thing, back when I got the exclusive on Kenya Moore’s elopement, I was reporting other things that got a bit overshadowed. One of those things was this young lady. So this is not news. This information was being discussed from the inception of the relationship when I was sent exclusive photos.
So it is very interesting to me why this male reality show participant is screaming from the mountain tops about it now, other than to drive up the ratings for the next season. The male reality show participant is doing more to advance the accusations than the party he claims to be so outraged about. Literally, no one would have known about the “bully” if he, and to some extent the young lady whose virtue is being questioned, would have just ignored it.
Instead, he keeps giving ammunition anyone he can coerce into attacking this alleged “bully.” At the same time he is accusing multiple cast members of befriending the “bully” and denouncing them publicly saying they were never friends. Thus the reason I covered the whole “friends” thing in the first paragraph.
The male reality show participant is well aware of the nature of his own relationship. All the histrionics are for ratings. Which is why it is basically being ignored by most of us.
Who is the male reality show participant? Who is the young damsel in distress? And most importantly, what’s up with the name of this blind item? Perhaps there are other clues on this site… if you can find them.
