Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart accept the Best Kiss award at the 2010 MTV Movie Awards.
Exes: They seem to be EVERYWHERE. Log on to Instagram and there they are, “liking” your pics. Check your Facebook feed and BAM! They’re changing their relationship status. And now, they’re infiltrating the last of the (supposedly) safe spaces by popping up on the new “Real World.” Oh, you haven’t heard?? Just a few episodes in to the housemates’ San Fran stay, they’ll come face-to-face with the Ghosts of Their Relationships Past. Cruel? Sure. TV magic? It is decidedly so.
Though we have no doubt the new cast will bring the drama this season (see: Jenny wielding a knife in the trailer), we can’t help but wonder what would happen if MTV conducted this experiment on famous exes instead. What if Twi-crossed lovers Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart were forced to hash it out in the hot tub while Miley Cyrus sobbed in the Confessional because Liam wasn’t paying her enough attention? What kind of hell would be raised if Katy Perry and Russell Brand were forced to share the same vanity table? And what would Taylor Swift do if she was stuck in the same bedroom as any one of her exes, with no privacy to pen a song about the living nightmare? Some chilling questions, and while there’s a 99.999 percent chance we’ll never find out the answers, it’s pretty fun to daydream.
So, which celebrity exes would you want to see starring on a fantasy version of “Real World”? Take the poll, and if your number one pick isn’t listed, nominate them in the comments!
