Vinny said in their rolling stone interview (everyone should def read if you're a fan) that they weren't allowed have them, guess it makes sense so that all the conversations can be mic'd. Don't understand how angelina had one.

yeah, on RW the jobs part of the show always blows... i cant remember a single season where the jobs or stupid projects they have to do add anything to the show at all. The reason jersey shore was so successful was because it did everything right that real world used to do or should be doing. Fights, partying, drama, socializing, etc. Real world now tries to be all politically correct and have castmates change the world and pursue their dreams on the show... its boring as hell. RW DC for example was incredibly lame for these reasons...having to watch Mike go around campaigning for gay rights etc etc.

They are clearly trying to pretend they aren't relatively huge celebrities. In the first episode when J-Woww/Snooki went to that bar in South Carolina it is very clear the "loser" knew who they were. When he started dancing he very clearly did an over exaggerated fist pump to make fun of them, but when everyone is in on the joke the show doesn't work as well.

Similarly they are all clearly getting laid a ton, there are enough people who will try to **** them just to get on TV at this point, but the producers don't want this show to turn into a reality version of Entourage so they probably omit a ton of this footage.

Considering that these days cell phones function as TVs and internet and e-mail and text devices, it's no surprise that they're banned, else they'd lay around on the couch all day texting, talking, and surfing and the TV prohibition would be pretty pointless. Plus as was noted they want to have the ability to two-way record every conversation. As it is half the population can't walk or drive anywhere without their goddamned phones glued to their hands so it's obviously a no-brainer decision.

Yeah that's the thing, just because people are trying to make it onto the show doesn't mean they will. It's not live, all the wannabe famewhore show crashers are just edited out. Not the least of the reasons being to not encourage others from doing same.

So what about the grenades that landed on the show? They just made it past the field sweep?

This would wind up being a fairly absurd expense and counter productive. You don't want people utterly blackout drunk for the most part (unless there is an arc involving some sort of problem with alcohol), you want them drunk but not horribly so. They probably have a curfew as well.

This. It forces the cast to have something in common and have something to interact and bond about. The dumb conversations they have at and about work lays groundwork for better overall relationships and better TV. It also forces their asses to get out of bed. They would lie around all day hungover without someone pushing them.

Nope, too many issues with audio (you would need them to have every call on speakerphone, basically) and with getting permission from the other person to record their voice. RW has an audio recording that automatically plays on the phone when someone calls in and a button to push to play it for when someone calls out. This would be impossible if they all had phones. No phones also leads to communications issues that do spur on story.

You guys have different tastes than me in what makes this show great. To me, blacked out idiots trainwrecking themselves is the best part of the show.

I meant blackout in the "not even functional" sense, not what they've been showing, even though they undoubtedly don't remember a lot of it.

rofl, love when Vinnie dropped the " you take my breath away" line to Snooki, and MTV immediately cut to Pauly D saying " Yea, I have no idea." Good stuff.
