I’ve always been an advocate for change: drastic haircuts, cross-country moves, jumping ship from Team Edward to Team Jacob (and then back again) — you name it, let’s risk it. Which is why I’m very excited to announce that the MTV Shows Blog is packing its bags and heading over to live with MTV News. Yep, we’re all grown up and ready to cohabitate!

The MTV News hub recently got a shiny makeover, and we’re all over it. We think you will be, too. It’s the Upper East Side condominium to our college dorm. No more hot plates; all stainless steel appliances.

Plus, now you’ll have access to stories on EVERYTHING pop-culture-related (TV, music, style, celebs, humor) in one place, as our friends at MTV Buzzworthy, Guy Code Blog and more awesome MTV.com hangout spots will also be joining. It’s a win-win.

So come with us. Explore with us. Continue to inform us about what you want to see on the site. There’s no use having a beautiful new home without a constant stream of guests.

See ya in a few?

With Love (I Mean It),

’16 And Pregnant’ Sneak Peek: Karley’s Mom Demands Some Gratitude http://remotecontrol.mtv.com/2014/05/16/16-and-pregnant-sneak-peek-karley-video/ http://remotecontrol.mtv.com/2014/05/16/16-and-pregnant-sneak-peek-karley-video/#comments Fri, 16 May 2014 22:08:13 +0000 http://remotecontrol.mtv.com/?p=210243 Karleyblog

On the next episode of “16 and Pregnant,” we’ll meet Karley, a young mom of TWINS whose living situation is anything but peaceful. Karley’s mom, Cindy, has been kind enough to allow her daughter, the babies and the babies’ father, Tony, to live with her, but she wishes Tony would show a little more appreciation for her support.

In the sneak peek below, Cindy overhears Tony admit that he doesn’t like living at the house, and she immediately tells him, “I don’t feel like you know how much we really do.”

Tony says he’ll start paying $300 a month in rent, but that’s not really the point for Cindy, who responds, “I would really like some gratefulness.”

Cue the screaming.

After a long day at his job, the last thing Tony wants to do is fight about gratitude with his girlfriend’s mom, who’s equally exhausted from working and helping with the twins. While Karley tries to get the two to calm down, Tony ends up storming out and Cindy is left in hysterics.

Watch the video, and tune in to “16 and Pregnant” Monday at 10/9c to see if Karley can eventually ease the tension in the household.

Fairy Tale ‘Catfish’ Couple Derek And Lauren Have Split: Max And Nev React [Video] http://remotecontrol.mtv.com/2014/05/16/catfish-derek-lauren-break-up/ http://remotecontrol.mtv.com/2014/05/16/catfish-derek-lauren-break-up/#comments Fri, 16 May 2014 21:21:07 +0000 http://remotecontrol.mtv.com/?p=210252 LaurenDerek

Catfish” has left dozens of love-hopefuls with broken hearts, but through the romantic rubble, one couple — Lauren and Derek — kept audiences optimistic that Internet dating can still yield the real deal. Lauren and Derek’s feelings for each other were so genuine, in fact, that they wound up getting engaged on Season 2′s reunion special. Yet while happily ever after seemed well within reach, they recently decided to split up.

The news might come as a shock to fans of the show, but in the interview clip below, Nev and Max maintain that no one is immune to the challenges of love, and that they understand how things can sometimes just fall apart. “I think it’s important to remember that just because relationships come and go, and you might be in love with someone and you think [is] the one, take your time,” Nev says. “There’s no reason to rush.”

Nev also shares that the breakup was “amicable,” and that he hopes the former couple can remain friends. Watch the interview clip, take another look at Derek’s proposal and post your reaction to the split.

‘True Life’ Check-In: Have Jackie And Sergio Had More Threesomes? http://remotecontrol.mtv.com/2014/05/16/true-life-check-in-couples-threesomes/ http://remotecontrol.mtv.com/2014/05/16/true-life-check-in-couples-threesomes/#comments Fri, 16 May 2014 20:24:43 +0000 http://remotecontrol.mtv.com/?p=210206 MTV’s latest “True Life” explored the stories of couples who wanted to have threesomes. We had an opportunity to check in with Jackie and Sergio to find out how their lives have changed since filming wrapped — take a look at the follow-up Q&A below.

sergioblog

What have you been up to since we last filmed with you?
We’ve continued looking for threesomes and have been quite successful finding gorgeous girls that we both like. You could say it has kind of become our weekend hobby, but our eyes are always open and looking for a sexy lady to join us for a special night. We also started a YouTube channel called “The Menage Project,” and have been vlogging our continued pursuit of threesomes. This is largely due to the enormous amount of support and positive feedback from sex-positive people who have thanked us for showing the world that we live in a new era, where people don’t have to be afraid of their sexuality. We know there are many people just like us who are afraid to explore their natural feelings, so we make it our daily goal to help as many people as we can understand that there is a big difference between love and sex.

What was it like being filmed while trying to have a threesome?
Having the cameras around was a wild experience, but in the end, we realized it was really difficult to get someone to have a threesome with us while the cameras were present. Many girls that we liked agreed to hook up with us, but as soon as they found out the cameras were a factor, they suddenly had a change of heart and ran away. Having a threesome with the cameras in the room was very awkward at first, but you eventually focus on what’s in front of you and forget that the cameras are even there.

What’s it like when you run into your threesome partner?
We’re sure most people think that it would be really weird or awkward running into someone you had a one-night stand with, but between the two of us, there is zero jealousy or regret. We both really enjoyed that magical night, and often think back to it. It has helped our relationship and communication skills in so many ways, so when we run into our mystery lady from that night, we only have amazing feelings and thoughts. In fact, we’re good friends now and see each other quite often.

Have you had any more threesomes?  Or do you plan to?
Wouldn’t you like to know? Yes! We’ve totally had more threesomes. How could we not after such an amazing first time? We’re very selective and only hook up with girls we both feel are 10s, but safe sex is a must and we take every possible precaution to ensure we prevent STDs and unplanned pregnancies. This keeps everyone safe and prevents any kind of future regret, so that we can continue to enjoy a sex-positive lifestyle. It has also been a lot easier to meet sexy ladies now that everyone knows what we like and the only cameras around are our own.

How has having that threesome affected your relationship long-term?
Before having a threesome, we were both very concerned that it would destroy our relationship and cause us to split up. There were feelings of jealousy and misunderstanding, but now that we’ve done it, our relationship is a lot stronger and trust is at an all-time high. It forced us to communicate and share our true feelings, and we learned that traditional relationships are not the only ones that work. Helping each other accomplish our dreams is what it’s all about, and if you’re truly in love, you will go to the ends of the earth to make it happen. We don’t have to hide our true sexual desires; instead, we achieve them together and the adventure only enhances the emotions we feel. We’re so very much in love and we’re excited to continue making our dreams a reality for the rest of our lives.

That’s What You Said…About Whether Jennara Can Remain ‘Awkward.’ BFFs http://remotecontrol.mtv.com/2014/05/16/awkward-jenna-tamara-friends-fan-comments/ http://remotecontrol.mtv.com/2014/05/16/awkward-jenna-tamara-friends-fan-comments/#comments Fri, 16 May 2014 19:35:54 +0000 http://remotecontrol.mtv.com/?p=210222 JennaraUse

College visits are meant to help zero in on your higher education options, but on this week’s “Awkwardepisode, Jenna saw them potentially narrowing down her friendships, too. While touring Southern Coast University’s campus, Jenna was incredibly inspired by the fellow aspiring writers she met, but Tamara, on the other hand, partied so hard that she completely blew her interview. In an instant, J-Town saw their paths divide, and wondered if they could remain BFFs.

She wasn’t the only one left pondering the permanence of the relationship, though, and after the show aired, fans sounded off, with some even sharing stories of whether they were able to maintain high school friendships after graduating. See a few of our favorites from MTV.com and Facebook, and keep the conversation going!

“Just like most high school friends, you’re going to have to separate different paths sooner or later. They’ll still be friends, but I don’t think they’ll stay that close.” — Basil

“Welcome to the real world. I have a VERY select few people from high school that I still talk to, and I only graduated five years ago. People drift apart…” — Kyle P.

“I don’t think this is the end of Jennara, BUT I do believe that they will go through a tough transition period as they both explore their separate interests. I assume it will put a strain on their friendship as they figure out how to find their new roles in each other’s lives, and how to play them.” — CAdkinsMODEL

“My best friends from high school all have lives to live, and even though time passes between us talking, we still can pick up right where we left off when we see each other. I still have faith in them.” — Niki R.

“Just because they’re going in different directions, doesn’t mean they won’t stay friends.” — Ashlee S.

“I’ve had the same best friends for five to ten years. It’s definitely possible, ladies. Yeah, we maybe have had fights and whatnot, but at the end of the day, it’s sisterhood.” — Taylor C.

Time Flies! Kailyn Lowry-Marroquin’s Son Celebrates First Half-Birthday http://remotecontrol.mtv.com/2014/05/16/kailyn-lowry-marroquin-son-lincoln-six-months-old/ http://remotecontrol.mtv.com/2014/05/16/kailyn-lowry-marroquin-son-lincoln-six-months-old/#comments Fri, 16 May 2014 18:49:29 +0000 http://remotecontrol.mtv.com/?p=210149 KailynLincolnblog

Little Lincoln is growing up so fast!

It seems like only yesterday Kailyn Lowry-Marroquin welcomed her second son, Lincoln, with husband Javi Marroquin, but the couple’s precious little boy is already six months old! As most parents can surely relate, before you know it, your kids are walking, talking, going off to school, experiencing their first kiss, driving and getting married. Sure, Lincoln isn’t hitting those special milestones quite yet (hey, sitting up and rolling over are a good start!), but his proud folks took to Twitter today to marvel at his growth.

“HAPPY 6 MONTHS TO MY LITTLE <3 Cannot believe how fast this time has gone by. Love my Slinky!” Kail tweeted along with a snapshot of the mother-son duo. Javi echoed the sentiment about his mini-me, and shouted out his wifey for giving him the “greatest gift.”

Who else wants to pinch the nugget’s sweet cheeks RIGHT NOW? And my how far his ‘do has come since big bro Isaac held Baby Lincoln for the first time — and called his hair “disgusting.”

A message to Kail and Javi: Better get the 1st birthday party theme ideas ironed out stat, because it will be here before you know it!

+ Take a trip down memory lane and watch Lincoln’s first appearance on “Teen Mom 2,” and make sure to congratulate Kail and Javi on creating such a perfect child!

Between the intriguing “Teen Wolf” stars and the “Code” jokesters, our network’s cast members have always got a ton to share on social media, and each week, we’re rounding up the posts that had us RTing like crazy. Check out the latest!

Graduation selfies are the best selfies.

If you don’t have “Pomp and Circumstance” stuck in your head yet, it’s only a matter of time…

This weekend, college students across the country will attend graduation ceremonies that signify their move into the real world, and two of our very own are among them! Spencer Pratt, whose college trek was a 10-years-long affair, and Greer Grammer of “Awkward” both received diplomas from the University of Southern California today, and we’ve gotta say one big CONGRATULATIONS to both. “Can’t believe it’s been 4 years since [my mom] dropped me off!,” Greer tweeted. Time does fly!

Greer Grammer and her mom, enjoying the big day!

Elsewhere on Twitter this week, Max Joseph said there was more than met the eye on Wednesday’s “Catfishepisode, but “Free Agent” Aneesa thought there was too little to this week’s mission. And though Rita Volk of “Faking It” was blown away by love from fans, Arden Cho was taken aback by her “Teen Wolf” co-stars’ gaseous habits. Isn’t there any Pepto on set, guys?

See what some of MTV’s best and brightest had to say on social media:

‘Teen Wolf’ Cast Talk Tombstones, We Cry [Video] http://remotecontrol.mtv.com/2014/05/16/teen-wolf-gravestones/ http://remotecontrol.mtv.com/2014/05/16/teen-wolf-gravestones/#comments Fri, 16 May 2014 16:40:50 +0000 http://remotecontrol.mtv.com/?p=210166 gravestone2_tw

Tough question, much? MTV recently sat down with a few of your favorite “Teen Wolf” cast members to discuss Season 3′s tragic deaths, and to ask what is quite possibly the most morbid question in the history of ever: “What would your gravestone say?”

tumblr_mc1mi2WeF21rxx8q5
Whyyyy would you ask me that?!

WHAT!? WHAT DOES THIS MEAN? Is somebody else gonna die? Frankly, we can’t take another “Teen Wolf” loss — Allison Argent’s end was enough for one lifetime. And, honestly, we’re still only in Stage 2 of the grieving process i.e. not even near emotionally equipped enough to deal with another teary goodbye. (That puddle of blood Melissa Ponzio tweeted from the set the other day wasn’t much of a comfort, either.)

The tombstone query was a bit rough for the cast members to discuss, as well. Okay, maaaybe just for Tyler Posey, who immediately retorted, “How sad is that question?” YES! We agree. On the other hand, Dylan O’Brien, Tyler Hoechlin and Holland Roden had no prob chatting epitaphs for their respective characters. Check out the clip, and join us in counting down the days ’til the Season 4 premiere on June 23 at 10/9c!

There Will Be Blood! Melissa Ponzio Tweets Photo Of ‘Teen Wolf’ Carnage http://remotecontrol.mtv.com/2014/05/16/melissa-ponzio-blood-puddle-photo/ http://remotecontrol.mtv.com/2014/05/16/melissa-ponzio-blood-puddle-photo/#comments Fri, 16 May 2014 14:31:13 +0000 http://remotecontrol.mtv.com/?p=210141 MelissaTweetsUse

Is Beacon Hills about to see another big casualty?

We’re only just beginning to wipe the image of Allison Argent‘s death from our minds, but it seems we’ve got to suck it up, because there’s even more “Teen Wolf” gore on the horizon. While on the show’s set yesterday, Melissa Ponzio, who plays Scott McCall‘s mother, Melissa McCall, tweeted a photo of a huge, ominous puddle of blood that’s spilled across a scratched-up floor. Let’s just hope it’s part of the show’s storyline and not a case of Arden Cho getting sword-happy between takes…

“Overheard on #teenwolf set today…’more blood…or, just do something’ more blood it is!!,” Melissa wrote with the snapshot, which looks like runoff from a particularly careless slaughterhouse. We’re not sure whose DNA we’re looking at, or if the hemorrhaging will make the difference between life and death, but when you can see your reflection in your own vital fluid, that’s definitely not a good sign. Looks like Beacon Hills’ hospital staff will be working overtime!

Stay tuned for “Teen Wolf” updates (Melissa, herself, has promised more), and hang tight for the Season 4 premiere on Monday, June 23 at 10/9c!

Zach Defends His Trivia Title In Our Own ‘Challenge: Free-For-All’ Quiz Show http://remotecontrol.mtv.com/2014/05/15/challenge-trivia-zach-wins/ http://remotecontrol.mtv.com/2014/05/15/challenge-trivia-zach-wins/#comments Fri, 16 May 2014 03:00:54 +0000 http://remotecontrol.mtv.com/?p=210101 ZachWinUse

Some folks are brainy, some are brawny and some lucky buggers are blessed with both. On tonight’s “Free Agents” episode, Zach proved he’s more than just muscle by taking home the gold medal — alongside Devyn — in “Smarty Pants,” after correctly answering questions about Disney princesses and soccer (we’re sure his former educators are proud!). And in the “Challenge: Free-For-All” trivia game below, he proves that lightning can, indeed, strike twice.

In our very own game show, Zach, Devyn and Jordan go head-to-head by answering questions surrounding modern “Challenge” competitors and their forefathers, and between bowel movements and shouting matches, the topics discussed definitely aren’t for the faint of heart. Though Jordan isn’t quite sure who Rachel hooked up with on “Duel II” (or who Rachel is…), and Devyn struggles to remember which competitor almost threw down with TJ (the audacity!), Zach lays down his “Challenge” knowledge like it’s no big thang, and even knows who pooped in an “Inferno” chicken suit.

“Go outside! Stop watching TV!” Jordan jests after Zach identifies David‘s 2004 bathroom blunder. But Zach’s not thrown off balance.

“I am brilliant,” he concludes.

Watch the threesome go for the title, and share your thoughts on the episode!
