    From reading this story today from yahoo / AP:

    Tequila will take another ‘Shot at Love’

    Wed Jan 2, 6:09 PM ET

    NEW YORK – “A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila” is apparently over for Bobby Banhart.

    The 25-year-old male film student selected last month by Tequila on her popular MTV reality dating show is no longer — or maybe never was — dating the 26-year-old bisexual Internet celebrity.

    During MTV’s live New Year’s Eve programming, Tequila said that Banhart had broken up with her because of her hectic work schedule. “He couldn’t handle it,” she said. “He broke up with me.”

    However, Banhart said in a Dec. 30 message posted on MySpace that “she never called me after the last show and no one would give me her number.”

    The network announced Wednesday that a second season of “A Shot at Love” will air this spring and will once again feature Tequila looking for love, reality TV style, among a group of men and women.

    “This time I wanna find love for real,” Tequila said during “Tila Tequila’s New Year’s Eve Masquerade 2008.”

    Casting notices circulated online for a second season of “A Shot at Love” before the finale, the network’s most-watched broadcast since November 2005.


    On the Net:



    My first thought was yeah right, this was most likely setup to be a failed relationship in the first place. I mean Tila was a star using her image for profit long before this show, and it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to realize that finding love and working for a successful happy relationship does not create a sequel, second season show to make more money for the girl, or MTV.

    It may make for popular TV, but I feel sorry for the guy who got on there and won the chance at a relationship with her. Sure, he should know that going on a reality MTV to find a relationship is kind of like being invited to Jerry Springer to find good news, but I’m sure he was under the impression that there would at least be a chance for a relationship. Now it seems that he was just set up to take the fall from the beginning. Perhaps I am wrong, but that;’s me first impression with this story.

    My advice first off is not to go on TV looking for love. Second bisexual women who are not even sure which sex they are more interested in will be tough to keep happy. Unless you are looking for a polygamous relationship or swinging lifestyle, keep away from the confused men and women who seem to have no preference. It can be a heartbreaking experience.

    Not to say there is anything wrong with bisexual, homosexual, trisexual, or polyamorous relations whatsoever, I just think if you are trying to find a mate, it would be prudent for both people to have in mind what they are looking for in the first place. It is hard to get into a relationship when you know what you want and yet the other partner is completely oblivious as to what sex they are even interested more in. I suppose as long as you know what you are getting into it is not a bad thing to help someone find what they are looking for, as long as you are prepared to find out it may not be you, or your sex.

    more on this thought tangent later…
