#TMITuesday: 10 Questions With CMT’s Party Down South Star Josh Murray

One of my favourite activities with my dad was watching trashy reality TV together. My dad actually introduced me to Jersey Shore so it is no surprise he got me hooked on Party Down South.

I had the pleasure of sitting down to ask an alumni of the show about his life now, The Challenge, and the essentials for a really Southern party in this all new #TMITuesday interview.

1. I’m (obvious from my Twitter account) a huge MTV’s The Challenge fan, a show where a fellow Party Down South cast member Mattie Lynn competed on. Were you watching her last season?

 Sh*t yeah I watched Mattie Daddy on that challenge whippin’ she ass left and right! I love her Ass and was a huge supporter or hers and that particular challenge season. 


2. Speaking of reality TV, do you watch any? I’m big on 90 Day Fiancé lately. 

I honestly don’t watch much reality tv and had 0 knowledge of even what happened in it until I stumbled into Party Down South.

I do try to keep up with Floribama Shore and Jersey Shore when I can. Having the same production company, 495 Productions, I support their shows and enjoy watching with inside knowledge of what’s going on. 

3. Since today is #TMITuesday can you tell the readers something they may not already know?


There really ain’t much I haven’t talked about publicly so hmm.

When I failed the backflip into the pool and busted my head open we downplayed the injury. I’d messed up my back, jaw, nose, eye socket, and neck. I turned down pain meds from the doctors cause I couldn’t drink and take pain meds so I chose partying and was back to it the next day!

4. Do you keep in touch with any of your former cast mates?

I do still talk to my cast mates! I talk to Daddy at least once a month!


5. What can we find on your recently played songs list? (Top 5)

My top 5 right now ranges widely from Jon Langston to Amon Amarth

6. Party Down South was clearly inspired by the hit series Jersey Shore. Do you think the JS cast could handle a night in the PDS house? Could you handle a night on the Jersey Shore?

When it comes to Party Down South compared to Jersey Shore we’re vastly different as people. So I think if the casts were to meet we would flat out drink em under the table, but they would party longer than us through the night.


We’d typically drink all day everyday and go to the bars around 8 or 9 so we’d have time to fish for chicks before the lights came on at 2 am. I think that’s typically what time they go to the club!

7. How has your life changed since your time on the show?

Since the show ended it was a pretty seamless transition back into the work place I was at before I did PDS. I do miss the fun though, can’t get it going the same without everyone else!

8. Everyone has a celebrity crush so who is yours and why?


My celebrity crush is hands down Maria Brink! Singer for the band In This Moment. That woman is the top of my list being beautiful, artistic, talented, tattooed, and puts on a FANF*CKINTASTIC show!

9. Partying down South looks hard (this is coming from a Canadian). What are the essentials for a night out in the South?


So prepare for a typical night out in the south you don’t need much at all! It’s clothes optional, booze a necessity, and a mentality prepared to GET IT GOING!

10. What’s next for you?


Next for me is to finish this drink and climb into bed so I can get up at 5 am and go work on some equipment!

This Thanksgiving Weekend I Am Thankful For New Harry Styles’ Music TBH

For me there are genres of music and then there are Nikki genres. One of my favourite Nikki genres is “dance and spin in your room like a fool” and Harry Styles has blessed us all with a banger for this category. “Lights Up” questions knowing who you are when the lights are on and everyone can see you.
The video, released not even 12 hours ago, shows Styles dancing with women and men and Stan Twitter is all over this with it being Coming Out Day. It has a warm tone visually and the sound had me shuffling my shoulders all silly like.

This new track seems on par with the musical progression of the former One Direction member since his freshman solo release in 2017 (I am currently BLASTING that album and feeling all the feels.). Strangely enough Halsey (who released Hopeless Fountain Kingdom in 2017) seems to be mirroring this progression (and vice versa with Harry to Halsey) with her new album Mania. All my 2017 feels from the year and these albums appeared to have grown like these artist’s music. Poetic or human nature?

What were you listening to in 2017? What do you think of the new Harry Styles song? Let me know in the comments.

#TMITuesday: 10 Questions with Teen Mom Star Mackenzie McKee

In a shocking plot twist after my 5+ years interviewing MTV celebrities this is my first Teen Mom chat. I was lucky enough to ask MTV’s favorite cheerleader who first met on 16 & Pregnant about her life now. We discuss her relationship with God, business and find out what she’s listening to with the kids.

1. How has your life really changed since your episode of 16 And Pregnant?

Well, I have really grown. I became a mom to two more beautiful children, I opened a business, and have learned how to take care of myself. 


2. Your story continued on Teen Mom 3/OG, how do you want your story to impact viewers?

It is very hard to be raw, open and honest on tv because people will say so many horrible things about you. But being real is the only way people can relate. I deal with real life problems and I hope people can learn from my mistakes.

3. Your recent divorce has been all over the press. How do you deal with the tabloids?

I simply do not read the tabloids or It will mess with my mental health. God knows where I belong and I truly believe he will lead me to the right person. 

4. Since today is #TMITuesday is there anything you can tell the fans about you that they may not already know?

In high school, the football players use to think I was the only cheerleader who farted because I was the only one who would do it around boys. I ain’t trying to have a stomach cramp all day to impress these boys.

5. Is there anyone in the “Teen Mom family” that you look up to? hmm, I think

All of them have an inspiring story to tell. I think Kail is a true bullet proof woman though. To see where she came from and who is is now really inspires me. 



6. Let’s talk fitness! Whats a typical routine like for you?

I wake up and work on self development because my mental health comes first. My children need me to be ok. And than I take my Great Dane on a walk and some times a short run. I come back and work on my business. Ill check emails, run my pages, do my social media stuff and teach cardio classes online from my home. And than its time to get the kids from school. I like to take a moment to help them with homework, fix supper, clean the house and than I load the kids up and go for my evening weight training. We than come home for bed time. This is my Monday-friday schedule. Saturday is for family, but I do try to sign up for races, or fitness things, or be active in some way. If for some reason I missed a workout throughout the week ill catch it up on Saturday. but I do try to leave that open for my family. And Sundays are for JESUS. My grandma cooks for the entire family and has since could remember. That is a day I just eat good food and do not stress about it.

7. Speaking of fitness, how do I get you as a trainer? I want a BodyByMac.

My website is www.bodybymac.net you can look through all of my plans. And I have some amazing support groups on facebook for those participating in my programs. Its kinda like connecting with others and me on a personal level and get the help you need for no extra charge. 

8. Baby Shark was a banger, what’s the song your kids are playing the most right now in your home?

Old Town Road for the boys and anything Jojo Siwa for my daughter. I may get judged for this, we love family dance parties and Snoop Dogg is always played haha. 



9. What advice do you have for young moms reading this?

Don’t forget to love yourself and always work on yourself. Sometimes life is too much for you as a single human to handle., Give it to God and let him carry your burdens. One day at a time sis, you got this.

10. And finally, what’s next for you?

My life has been rather crazy this year. It has taken big turns. I wake up every morning and ask God to lead me. Without him I would not even be here. Without turning to him I would have killed myself along time ago. I just want to work hard and see where life leads me. You guys will continue to see my story, my mom is rocking this thing called life, and I will continue what I have worked hard for, my business.
