An excerpt from Video Killed the Reality Star, my forthcoming novel about a serial killer who terrorizes VH1’s headquarters. (SPOILER ALERT: It’s Bret Michaels.) Also, a mnemonic for the 22 cities that have hosted a season of The Real World (New York, Seattle, Sydney, Chicago, New Orleans, London, Key West, Austin, Vegas, Paris, D.C., Philadelphia, Brooklyn, San Francisco, Cancun, San Diego, Los Angeles, Hawaii, Hollywood, Boston, Miami, and Denver.)
