Mary-Ellis Bunim, Co-Creator Of 'Real World' And 'Road Rules,' Dies
Mary-Ellis Bunim, producer of shows like the Real World and Road Rules and an all around pioneer in the world of reality television, died the other day of cancer at age 57.
Check out this amusing quote from Jonathan Murray aka the Gay Guy from BMP:
"Mary-Ellis was a one-in-a-million partner and friend, and I will always treasure our incredible years of collaboration," Murray said in a statement. "Even as the family at Bunim/Murray Productions mourns her loss, we will honor her memory by remaining committed to her ideals of creativity, adventure and excellence, both on the screen and in our lives."
Creativity, adventure and excellence? Hmm...
I think in honor to Mary-Ellis Bunim and her committment to the ideals of creativity, adventure and excellence, I'm going to go ahead and finish off those Episode Summaries of the last three episodes of the Real World that I've been putting off for the last week or so.
That way, people can witness my own personal committment to the ideals of creativity, adventure and excellence, which were no doubt formed from years of sitting in my parents' basement watching crap like the Real World and Road Rules.
