Real World Alum Sean Duffy is Running for Congress

About ten years ago, when The Real World was still watchable, The Real World Boston’s Sean Duffy met The Real World San Francisco’s Rachel Campos, and they went on to have lots and lots of babies together. Sean Duffy became a District Attorney, and Rachel Campos made some appearances on The View. Now, Sean Duffy is running for Congress. Do I want him to get elected?

Arists nominated for best original song will not be performing at this year’s Oscars. One of the nominees is allegedly outraged by this revelation.

Remember that cheesy soap opera they had on the air in the late 90s?
