Remember all those rumors that the next edition of MTV's "The Real World" was going to be based in Royal Oak?

Sorry.

On Monday, MTV and Bunim-Murray Productions and the State of Colorado announced the 18th season of "TRW" will begin production in Denver. The next season of the popular MTV reality series is scheduled to premiere in the fall and is slated for 24 episodes.

"Denver has absolutely everything we could hope for -- diversity, activities, energy and nightlife," says MTV big shot Lois Curren.

If you're counting, past seasons of "The Real World" have taken place in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, London, Miami, Boston, Seattle, Hawaii, New Orleans, Chicago, Las Vegas, Paris, San Diego, Philadelphia, Austin and Key West

That building in Royal Oak still isn't ready yet. Who knows? It may be next in line after Denver.

I'm devastated. Really. But not really. Actually, I'm pretty happy.

Me too, Gotdetroit, me too.

Folks in Detroit need to realize that opportunities such as this past us all the time because we don't have a real "downtown." Why should producers come to the most segregated region in the United States? Where our perceptions of a major downtown is Royal Oak?!

So what? They are just going to throw away all that footage of the Super Bowl volunteer Real World cast? LMAO!

Actually I can't help but take a little comfort and pleasure knowing that someone, somewhere out there...believing that proximity to a bad TV show validates their existence...is more than a little devastated by this news.

I COMPLETELY agree with you Ltorivia485. Its a complete shame Detroit isn't able to host things such as Real World... and when I say Detroit, I actually mean downtown DETROIT, not some Royal Oak. Its also a shame that if they were going to have the Real World in Michigan, the alternative would be Royal Oak.... Its funny though because some people are always saying "YEAH IM FROM THE D.... YEAH DETROIT...."... but won't dare step foot on a Detroit sidewalk... (SORRY FOR THE RANT) As a teenager, I should be able to actually have a downtown experience (shopping) and not just go to a boring mall and it sucks to have the "teenage movie hotspot" be in Birmingham! ugh... (SORRY FOR THE RANT AGAIN)

Yeah, Royal Oak is a real drag. Safe streets, effective city services, a walk-able downtown, decent schools that don't have STAGGERING dropout rates.

To Southofeight:




What makes all of those qualities that you boast Royal Oak has?


:-O A cities' residents.!! :-O

Why do Detroit schools fair so poorly...


Why do the city services operate so terribly...


Why do the streets seem not so safe...


The city is full of a bunch of knuckleheads.


As I write this I am looking down my street at the throng of dudes that have been parked out in front of thier cars all day long, instead of at a job, instead of cleaning their house, instead of taking care of their family and instead of even posting on here!


KNUCKLEHEADS!!

So how are you any better for sitting inside all day watching some guys sit outside? (The question begs to be asked.)

Bussey...have you at the very least tried to encourage any of those dudes? Would you even dare go and talk go to any of them and tell them of Detroit's good points?

Or do you sit in your window, just looking out at them and shake your head in disgust.

I noticed something in my old neighborhood. When one neighbor starts sweeping their front...others follow. They get out and discuss with their neighbors the problems and they band together to rid of them.

Even in my neighborhood, although it is a fairly new community, we talk about the area and what we are going to do to help maintain a comfortable living environment.

That's what we all need to do and things will change

I just hope Pittsburgh or Cleveland or Minneapolis don't beat Detroit to the Real World. :-) Detroit isn't ready yet but give it a few more years...

Ltorivia, Easydoesit, I think there's just too much of the populace around here who is not just anti-Detroit but anti-urban. Hell, the state constitution sure is. Anyways, these people are content to watch the region's youth, knowledge, skills, and money move out. I don't have any solutions for those people. OTOH, there's definitely a market for urban in the region that isn't being met. The Royal Oaks (Mt. Clemens...) are certainly trying.

Has anyone here been to downtown Denver? I was there two years ago, and they were about 4-5 years ahead of us, at most. I actually found it lacking much of the character we have here.

Gambling_man, haven't been there but have a friend moving there. From what I've heard and see of its downtown, they've got a downtown mall and light rail but otherwise it's a very 70s/80s downtown. It's characteristic for downtowns of that era to lack character. While Detroit may not have regional light rail or a downtown mall in 4-5 years it could definitely be more bustling. Right now they are comparable in size.
