The Great #InstagramPurge of 2014—Andy Reacts!

Plus: The Couchers on the 'Real World New York' reunion and more viral news of the week.

What's going viral? Who's been the top trending topic on Twitter? And what are the news stories that had us obsessed all week? There's plenty of can't-miss stuff out there beyond our Bravoverse. And every Friday, we're rounding up all the must-see stories, Tweets, Instagrams, YouTubes, Vines, and more in one handy place. Enjoy!

The Great #InstagramPurge of 2014!
Celebrities—and Instagram users who think they're celebrities—were in for an ego-blow this week: the social network announced it was scrubbing the service of "spammy accounts," resulting in big drops to users' follower numbers. Page Six pointed out that Kim Kardashian lost about 1.3 million users, while Rihanna's account decreased by 1.2 million. Our Bravolebs including Andy Cohen were also hit by the purge—but at least they were good sports about it.

We are bemused about our 20k lost followers. Who were they? What does it mean? #InstagramPurge

The Real World: New York Reunites
What happens when people stop being nice—and start getting real? You're about to find out—again. The stars of MTV's reality show Real World: New York will reunite twenty-two years after it premiered on the small screen. Housemates Heather B., Norman Korpi and their pioneers will join Oprah to look back on the groundbreaking series. What do your People's Couch stars think of the reunion? They weighed in:
Scott Nevins: Ever since 1992, when someone says the words "True story" in front of me, I have a knee jerk reaction to instantly hollar "Truuuue storyyyyy! About seven strangers, picked to live in a house and have their loves taped....." (and yes, I did the entire intro speech!) The impact Real World Season 1 had on me can only be described by what I imagine a drug user feels when they try heroin for the first time. I'm always chasing that feeling!!! I was 13 years old and I was infatuated with this show, the concept and of course, the cast! Truth be told, I was always a nosey little kid, so this just fed into my need to know everything about everyone's lives. Twenty-two years later, we view Real World: New York as the fetus that grew up and spawned off big, fat, spoiled, bratty and hilariously entertaining yet frightening children from its family tree of reality TV! If it wasn't for MTV taking a chance on this "real" concept, I'd still be chatting it up with all of the elderly folks in my hood, trying to get the skinny on our neighbors about who's cheating, who's fighting, who's trying to make babies, and who isn't a natural blond!
Emerson Collins
One of the greatest impacts of The Real World was its trailblazing approach to portraying real LGBT people on TV long before there were many out celebrities, gay characters or LGBT storylines in mainstream media. As a young gay man, watching Pedro Zamora [in San Francisco] put a face on living with HIV, Danny Roberts tell the story of dating another man under Don't Ask Don't Tell along with Norman, Aneesa, Dan, Ruthie, Tyler, Katelynn and the many other memorable personalities through the seasons, The Real World was the first place in pop cultures where I, and others like me, saw real LGBT people living their lives openly. Simply by sharing the stories of individuals from our community, The Real World inspired many LGBT youth to come out and tell their own stories.
Nicole Resnick
I'm familiar with The Real World But since New York edition appeared 22 years ago, I was just born! Ha ha ha! Yep, I am a youngster.

 

Seth Rogen's Interview Is Canceled
The ongoing leak of Sony's emails and internal documents stemming from the Guardians of Peace hack had one huge repercussion this week: the studio announced it would not premiere the movie. Terrorist threats on theaters were a major cause of the cancellation of the flick, where Rogen and James Franco play characters sent to assassinate the leader of North Korea. But is this all just a smoke-screen to get people to see another movie? Emerson Collins of The People's Couch has a hilarious theory:

Charlie Sheen Reprises Ferris Bueller Role
Get ready to feel old: Charlie Sheen will bring back his infamous bad-boy character from Ferris Bueller's Day Off. The actor will play "Boy in Police Station" in an upcoming episode of The Goldbergs. Check out this photo.

Watch an Amazing Serial Parody
The buzziest, most-talked-about podcast, well, in history got an amazing send-up from the minds at Funny or Die. The clip seemed to go nearly as viral as Sarah Koenig's investigation of the murder of Hae Min Lee. Check it out.

WTF Is "On Fleek?"
Our Bravolebs have made plenty of phrases part of our daily slang: including Trash Box, Bye Felicia, Turtle Time and Woo-Hoo! But the term we were obsessed with this week was "On Fleek," a phrase that dates back to at least 2003 but has gotten revived since stars like Kim Kardashian, Ariana Grande, and others resurrected it. So what does it mean? As People points out, "on fleek" defined as "smooth, nice, sweet." But after seeing this Kim K photo below, we'll stick with "Gone With the Wind Fabulous."
