Way back in 1992, MTV debuts “The Real World” and we found out what it was like “when seven strangers were picked to live in a NYC loft” and “stopped being polite and started getting real.” Well, guess what? The original cast is back! They just wrapped filming in their original loft at 565 Broadway in Soho, and pretty soon we’ll see how kind the past 3 decades has been to the Real World OGs Becky, Andre, Heather, Julie, Norman, Eric and Kevin.

Evan Rachel Wood opened the floodgates when she named Marilyn Manson as her abuser. Over the past couple weeks, several more women have come forward, including Esme Bianco. Esme, who appeared as a minor character in “Game of Thrones,” said she was transported from the UK to the US and coerced into involuntarily servitude, which included sexual abuse and physical abuse.” She claims Marilyn cut her with a knife, scarred her back with a whip and starved her. Esme said, “I was given nothing to eat. He gave me drugs and alcohol, and I essentially was not allowed to leave.” She claims Marilyn would force her to pull up her dress and show his friends the bruises he’d given her, and she has pictures of the scars, bruises, and cuts allegedly from him. Esme said she also kept text messages where Marilyn allegedly said he wanted to “murder other women.” Esme said because she was such a huge Marilyn Manson fan when she was a teenager, she would forgive him and stay. But after he chased her with an ax, that was it. She left. The FBI has now asked Esme to turn over any evidence she has against Marilyn, who is now being investigated for human trafficking and sex crimes.

Kristin Cavallari popped over to the West Coast to film some scenes for two episodes of “The Hills: New Beginnings.” While she was there, she hooked up with rumored boyfriend Jeff Dye. This relationship has a lot of us confused — including me. It was just a couple weeks ago that Kristin and Jay Cutler posted identical photos and called out “users.” We knew they were referring to Southern Charm star Madison LeCroy, but we thought maybe Jeff was included when Jay and Kristin’s reps said they were both single. But paparazzi caught Kristin and Jeff shopping for groceries so they’re obviously very much a couple.

When Lamar Odom dropped that bombshell on Wendy Williams about his ex-fiancée Sabrina Parr hooking up with one of Khloe Kardashian’s men, it turns out he was referring to Tristan Thompson. However, this was not news to Khloe. Sources told TMZ that Tristan and Sabrina hooked up almost 10 years ago, during Tristan’s rookie season with the Cavaliers, which was Sabrina’s hometown team. Even though Lamar made it sound like the hookup was recent, it was WAY in the past. And Tristan apparently told Khloe about it a long time ago, so no harm done.

It’s a big blow for the #FreeBritney movement. A judge has ruled that Jamie Spears will remain co-conservator of his daughter’s estate for the time being. Lawyers for both sides were arguing over an “unclear and ambiguous” petition that had been filed by Britney’s attorney. And it is EXTREMELY confusing. Apparently, they’re not trying to remove Jamie as co-conservator, even though her lawyer told the court that it’s “no secret” that Britney doesn’t want him and that they’ve filed previous paperwork saying Britney won’t perform again until her dad is out. But her lawyer said removing him is a separate issue. Right now, they just want to get the language right on delegating the responsibilities of handling Britney’s estate. The judge set two more court dates for March and April. Meantime, a virtual “Free Britney” rally was held on Zoom and over 1000 people tuned in, including Britney’s baby sister Jamie Lynn, who hung out for about 10 minutes. People on that call were encouraged to write California Governor Gavin Newsom about Britney’s case and also create a White House petition to set Britney free.
