    Post Reality TV Pioneer Mary-Ellis Bunim Dies at 57

    Why is this important? She is part of the duo that brought us over 10 years of miscegenation, homosexuality, and helped in polluting the MTV generations morality. If there were such a thing as karma, she would have been dead a decade ago. As a teen Ms. Bunim showed me why homosexuals are much better people than those that despise homosexuals, aka homophobes in the mainstream. She showed me that the poor black man just can't be expected to live in a household and act in a decent manner because white people are just too damn racist. I think her greatest contribution to society has been the promotion of unbiased promiscuity. For over a decade of polluting youths minds and helping to further destroy white culture, rot in the disease you've helped to spread.

    Reality TV Pioneer Mary-Ellis Bunim Dies at 57

    Friday, January 30, 2004

    LOS ANGELES — Producer Mary-Ellis Bunim (search), who brought television into the age of reality with MTV's "The Real World" and whose latest hit series was "The Simple Life," has died at age 57.

    Bunim died Thursday after a long battle with breast cancer, MTV (search) announced Friday.

    She and business partner Jonathan Murray, who kicked off the reality trend in 1992 with "The Real World," were among the genre's most prolific producers.

    Their series included "Road Rules," "The Love Cruise," "Making the Band," "Starting Over" and, most recently, Fox's "The Simple Life" with party girl and headline-maker Paris Hilton.

    Bunim was "an extraordinary talent who pioneered an entire genre of television," Fox's entertainment president, Gail Berman said in a statement Friday.

    Bunim, Murray and other producers upended the TV order as reality shows soared in popularity, eventually wresting chunks of broadcast and cable schedules away from traditional scripted series.

    While some critics decried the shows as base, sometimes exploitive entertainment, audiences and networks embraced them.

    The Bunim-Murray productions targeted a young audience. "The Real World," (search) for instance, threw a mixed group of young adults together as roommates, with an unblinking camera keeping tabs on them.

    "Mary-Ellis opened our eyes and our hearts to a whole new way of looking at young adult programming," Judy McGrath, MTV Networks Group president, said in a statement.

    The Bunim-Murray magic didn't translate to films, however. Their movie "The Real Cancun" was a critical and box-office dud.

    Before she turned to real-life soap opera, Bunim had vast experience in the traditional kind. She was responsible for more than 2,500 hours of daytime TV as executive producer of "Search for Tomorrow," "As the World Turns," "Santa Barbara" and "Loving."

    As a New World Entertainment vice president, she developed programming for children as well as for daytime and late-night.

    The native of Northampton, Mass., is survived by her daughter, Juliana.

    Good riddance.
    The Phora

    "There are no principles; there are only events. There is no good and bad, there are only circumstances. The superior man espouses events and circumstances in order to guide them. If there were principles and fixed laws, nations would not change them as we change our shirts and a man can not be expected to be wiser than an entire nation."
    —Honoré de Balzac
