If anyone you know is talking about anything other than Game Of Thrones you need to find a new social circle I guess? The most recent episode had a shocking scene with young Maisie Williams getting a sex scene. In typical Williams fashion she had a good spirit about it all.
Although you would expect Jemmye Carroll to be tweeting solely about the latest season of The Challenge (airing Tuesday nights on MTV) the Real World alumni took to the social media platform to give back.
This week the “shade queen” of MTV put out a call on Twitter for teachers to send her an Amazon wishlist of supplies they needed so she could purchase them. Carroll took not one but SIX of those wishlists and fulfilled the orders that same night.
Teachers who received the wishlist fulfilling tweeted their gratitude and it warms my heart to read. The reality TV star and writer encouraged others to do the same and it’s inspiring when people in the public eye use their influencer and platform to do more than sell you sunglasses and weight loss tea. Good on you Jem, good on you. I’ve seen more than a few tweets about others picking up some more Amazon wishlists and if you have ever been back to school shopping you know this isn’t cheap. More often than not teachers will pay out of their own pockets for supplies for their class, tweet at Jemmye to see how you can help?
A woman who lives her life by the Hakuna Matata, provides MTV with hilarious commentary and really should have her own reality show ‘Marie,Marie And Also Marie: Redemption House’ takes over this week’s #TMITuesday. We first fell in love with the blonde babe on The Real World: St Thomas, and after avoid the show for a bit we were reintroduced to her on The Challenge. I laid down (I usually sit down for interviews but Y’ALL I AM TIRED) to ask Marie about her showmance with a certain AYTO man, her online rivalry with Cara, and made plans with her to party.
Oh wait not, I def forgot to do that last one. Either way, check out this week’s new interview to get your fill of Roda after her elimination on The Challenge.
1. You got yourself into some trouble early into the season by being a part of the reason Jenna went into elimination against her bff Kailah. With both ladies being your friends how do help to separate friendships from Challenge house politics?
In this particular challenge it was really hard. At the end of the day, everyone had a number 1 but me. (Toya went home so soon) I was playing for myself and myself alone. In any other season the move we pulled off would’ve been epic but of course w my luck there was redemption. I never want kailah/Jenna. I wanted Kailah to take out Camila. I did know that if something did get messed up two big players would go enviably.
Either way – it still made me feel like shit because I’m not a “dirty” player/person. If nothing else, it made for a great episode.
2. What would you say is your ‘theme song’?
American Woman LOL
3. To say the least you didn’t eat a whole lot in the redemption house challenge; do you think you would fair better in the physical elimination the first round of redemption house challengers competed in?
Yes. Aneesa’s ankle was still hurting and I straight up told her if it was physical I planned on kicking it. In regards to the “food” – 1. I knew my ability to take it down and I couldn’t foresee eating it faster than Nicole/Aneesa was. I also knew that we weren’t even half way through the game. Had it been a final perhaps I would’ve competed differently but for me I was kind of like … well I’m gonna lose this regardless, why lose AND eat shit. Poor Nic ate almost everything and was on the same plane home as me so.
4. You deal with SO MANY TWITTER TROLLS. Recently you tweeted that you believe Cara Maria runs a few. Let’s get shady, can Cara back it up when she dishes it?
Nope! But that’s what trolls do. At this point I’m not even sure how we got here, but we’re here. I’m excited for everyone to see the rest of the season and the person I currently know Cara to be. I’m also looking forward to the reunion since everyone will see for themselves if she can back it up or not. I’m not one to hold grudges — I don’t care nor do I have the attention span.. plus I told myself yesterday I need to grow up and ignore trolls and twitter drama. I’m too cool for that shit
5. You also tweeted about the premiere of the latest season of Are You The One, who would be your perfect Challenge match of all the guys to compete in 30 seasons?
That is a tough one. I like to think Kenny. He’s hot and hilarious. Although he’d prob make it much further than me in a challenge and I don’t fair well with long distance relationships. I’m also not really sold on crossfit so I’m not sure if he’d accept me or not lol
6. Unlike the more recent seasons of The Real World your season didn’t include a twist. Do you think your cast could have handled a twist?
I wish it did. Our season was pretty boring solely because of our location and ability to go out and meet people. Would def be hilarious to see my troll my ex boyfriends on national tv though.
7. Since today is #tmituesday can you tell the fans something they may not know about you? Any hidden talents or guilty pleasures?
I actually am a huge fan of AYTO. There’s something about hot young singles, alcohol, and a million dollars that reallllllly gets me going.
I also was a prude until I was in 8th grade. Hit the ground running though once we knocked that off my bucket list.
8. Who is your celebrity crush?
Paul walker RIP
9. Whatever happened with you and Anthony? You started a lil showmance on Invasion.
Love him. When he got kicked off we went on a little rendezvous to Florida and Aruba. I actually brought him as a date to my friends wedding. We talk still. Great guy, makes me laugh, and he’s hot.. but it’s more like a playful sister/brother bond right now with a high probability of some lovin’ if we were near each other. Lol
10. What’s next for you Marie?
Same thing I do everyday Nikki. Try to take over the world.
You can stay up to date with Marie and her antics on Twitter, and check out The Challenge tonight at 10pm on MTV.
As a Canadian, I was introduced to Stefan Brogren as Snake, lowkey my mom had a pretty big crush on him according to my dad, and later on to my friends who weren’t introduced to the show until Degrassi: The Next Generation (yes that was the one with Drake). Fast forward past Snake’s affair on the show, having a baby with Spike,and a stint as principal; Brogren is now directing, and producing off screen with Netflix’s Degrassi: Next Class.
Fun fact: I have auditioned for Degrassi more than once. Seriously, I did it as an actor who looks like 15, an as a Canadian right of passage.
But, the man is one of many talents with tweeting being on of them. Here are 7 times Stefan Brogren ruled Twitter:
1. When he said how we all felt about The Daily Show, and life in general…
2. When he proved he wasn’t a sore loser.
3. When he live tweeted during one of the disasters this year known as the presidential debates.
4. And then when he reacted to the results of said election a monthish later…
5. He may be Canadian but he understands Americans and their holidays
6. Speaking of being thankful, tfw you are also thankful for Dave Chapelle’s SNL hosting.
7. And finally, when Brogren gave in and watched Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life like we all did this past weekend.
For more tweets from Stefan Brogren, follow him on Twitter, or follow me as I retweet my favourites.
I’ve been saying that Vine is dead for well over a year, the social media platform that created a plethora of comedy careers for users of the app that allowed you to post up to 6 second videos is taking over Twitter with the #RIPVine tag today.
Twitter, which bought out Vine, announced it is discontinuing the app earlier today.
But how torn up about the loss are you, I care very little about it. I think the only people who will be upset are the companies who utilize famous Viners for ads, and promotion.
Vine introduced us to King Bach (Host of Punk’d), Jus Reign (Much Creator), and brought Josh Peck (Drake and Josh, Grandfathered, The Mindy Project) back into our lives/hearts.
Ultimately Instagram, and Snaphat took over the video game within social media. We will all survive without Vine.
Twitter has been blowing up today with trending topics of tea in the pop music world and people are very opinionated on the subjects.
First up, the unwarranted #TaylorVsAriana tag
No one is really sure why this tag came to be but T-Swift fans, and Arinators went NUTS. While some remained neutral and said the made up feud was silly and that both are very talented, others did not. Bringing up Taylor’s beef with Kanye, and comparing the vocals between the two women.
Others used it as an outlet to get more retweets and likes on a tweet with “RT for Ariana, Like for Taylor!”. The whole thing seems pretty silly, and I’m hoping one of the two will speak on the topic and put it to rest.
THE POP TEA DID NOT STOP THERE Y’ALL. Little Mix singer Perrie Edwards made the trending topis with #PerrieExposesZayn. Twitter was surely not on Edwards’ side calling it a ‘pathetic cry for attention’ and ‘sad’ as rumours re-circulated that the two UK popstars ended their relationship due to infidelity on Zayn’s side.
I wonder what Gigi will have to say about all this…
But why were there less tweets about Drake and Rihanna’s rumored split? There are certainly some theories out there about it…
