Real World Reunion

For a young gay boy growing up in a Boston suburb, 1992 was a big year.  That was the first time I regularly saw a gay person on TV.  When MTV launched The Real World, they also started a reality craze that continues to this day.  Sure, we all lusted after Eric Nies, but Norm Korpi was out and proud and usually in a tub!  Paramount Plus is staging a reunion with the entire first-season cast.  The Real World Homecoming: New York drops on March 4th.

Dolly Parton is going to pop up on the final season of Grace and Frankie.  Or is she?  Most media outlets say it will happen, but I don’t believe it’s a done deal.  Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin have long discussed wanting to write something for Dolly, but it’s happened.  Last week, Dolly was on the UK chat show Lorraine and said, “We’ve been trying to write me in somehow.  So when it’s safe for us to actually do a production when they’re back, I’ll probably get around to doing that.”  Meanwhile, Lily was talking to Hoda and Jenna on Today and said, “We have a great role for her this time.  I think she will do it.  I’m just hoping she will.”  Fingers crossed.
