‘Real World: Austin’ Star Melinda Stolp is Reportedly Being Stalked


Reality TV fame isn’t all glamour and free vacations. Sometimes, it can be downright scary to be famous, as Real World: Austin star Melinda Stolp has learned in recent months. According to Milwaukee news station WISN, Melinda has allegedly been dealing with a very scary stalker, who has not only threatened Melinda’s life but also the lives of her co-workers and even those that work at MTV!

The news station reported that a warrant has been issued for the arrest of a Michigan woman named Rachel Hill, whom has allegedly been stalking Melinda, despite the fact that she has never met her. According to the news report, Rachel has sent dozens of threatening emails, phone calls and messages to Melinda and to the dental office where Melinda works.

“Laced with profanity, the messages include threats like, ‘I’m going to come into the office and shoot all of you in the head’ and ‘I’m going to go to MTV and burn the building down,’” the report said.

‘The Real World’ is Coming Back! Bunim-Murray Officially Casting for Season 31

It's happening, people!

It’s happening, people!

Fans of The Real World have been nervously twiddling their thumbs, awaiting an announcement that MTV had renewed its longest-running reality show for a 31st season. The aging reality show, which premiered in 1992 (before many of its fans were even born), has been slumping in the ratings in recent seasons, causing many to fear that MTV would soon cancel it. The network announced months ago that it had renewed ‘Real World’ spin-off The Challenge for another season (click here for details on that), but had remained suspiciously mum on the fate of ‘The Real World.’

Today, a casting director for Bunim-Murray announced that they are currently casting for ‘The Real World 31,’ and, although the network hasn’t released any info on the new season, the fact that they are casting at least confirms that there will be another season after all!

Exclusive Details on the Upcoming Season of ‘The Challenge: Bloodlines’– Meet the Cast!

The Challenge

The next season of MTV’s The Challenge is on its way—and this season’s theme will be like none before it! The Ashley can confirm that the cast left the country on their way to film next season’s ‘The Challenge: Bloodlines!’

In what will likely be a rip-off of the Survivor “Blood vs. Water” season, ‘Challenge’ participants will bring a family member with them to compete. It is not yet known whether the family members will compete as a duo, or if they will compete against each other.

The Ashley’s source tells her that Bodrum, Turkey, is the location of this ‘Challenge;’ however the source was unable to confirm that detail.

Calls for casting starting going out in March, the source tells The Ashley, and many regular and long-lost cast members were contacted. However, many of them were not cast because they weren’t able to find a suitable “bloodline” to bring along with them. (The “bloodlines” had to go through the same casting process that the ‘Real World’ folks do—applications, Skype interviews, tests, etc.)

Jemmye and Knight were a favorite ‘Challenge’ couple.

It’s been about six months since Ryan Knight, star of MTV’s The Challenge, passed away from an accidental drug overdose, but his MTV cast mates, particularly his ex-girlfriend, Jemmye Carroll, are still struggling with the loss.

Jemmye, who was Knight’s partner on the show’s most-recent “Battle of the Exes II” season, recently penned an essay for Thought Catalog in which she reveals her heartbreak over the loss of Knight, and explains what was happening during the days leading up to his death. His last tweet, which said, “You used to mean a lot,” seemed to be aimed at Jemmye, something she confirmed in her Thought Catalog essay.

“Hours before you died you tweeted and I will never be able to get over your last words because they were directed to me,” Jemmye wrote. “ You died mad at me.

“I forever have to live with the thought that you left this world upset at me.”
