THE REAL WORLD HOMECOMING: NEW ORLEANS TRAILER REVEALS THINGS ARE STILL TENSE BETWEEN FORMER CASTMAT

After revisiting New York and Los Angeles, The Real World: Homecoming is heading back to the Big Easy for it’s third season.

In the new trailer, we take a scat-tastic trip down memory lane with season 9 castmates David Broom (who now goes by Tokyo), Jamie Murray, Matt Smith, Melissa Beck (née Howard), Danny Roberts, Kelley Wolf (née Limp), and Julie Stoffe.


Speaking of Jukie, it looks like a lot of the former cast mates have unfinished business with Julie, who’s views of people outside of her Mormon upbringing rubbed many of them the wrong way.

What I loved about the New Orleans season was Danny Roberts’ story, who was openly gay on the show and at the time of filming was dating someone who was in the military.

Paul even came on the show to visit Danny and had his face blurred out to conceal his identity. Times were different then, because this was the time of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. So if Paul revealed his identity, he could have been dishonorably discharged.

As a Real World watched growing up I really loved the groundbreaking stories featuring it’s queer castmates, and in 2022 we could definitely use more of that.

Even though more than 20 years have passed, things are still tense between the former New Orleans housemates. “We were really, really good friends, and then you did a really bad thing to me,” Melissa says to Julie. Danny, meanwhile, notes that everyone in the cast has a “complicated history” with Julie — who was known to fans of the original as the sheltered Mormon girl from Wisconsin.

The Real World Homecoming: New Orleans premieres Wednesday, April 20, on Paramount+.
