Last night, Variety confirmed what you all knew in your hearts to be true: A Shot at Love With Tila Tequila is returning for a second season on MTV. The show will follow the same format as the initial series — 10 episodes wherein men and women compete for a chance at Tila’s affections and network superstardom (the show earned a 5.9 rating among viewers aged 12-34, which means it enjoyed, to paraphrase Borat, great success). It will premiere next spring, following the Tila Tequila spin-off, That’s Amore with Domenico Nesci, who will be aided in his search by Ashley, the insane guy who broke his foot when he was kicked off the initial series.
But wait, you say! What about Bobby, the first season winner who vanquished Dani and promised to cherish his Tequila moments forever? According to Tila’s blog, it just didn’t work out. Writes Ms. Tequila, “Bobby had broken up with me a few days before all of this went down. I wasn’t expecting it at all because I thought I had finally found someone that I was compatible with, but I guess I was wrong. My hectic schedule was really hard on him and we both were getting frustrated, but at the same time . . . I just wanted to find someone who would understand what a crazy lifestyle I have so it’s too bad that things didn’t work out between us. With that said I just want to make it known that I still think Bobby is a great guy and I wish him the best.”
In the meantime, Tila Tequila and company partied hard on New Year’s at Tila’s masquerade ball in New York. Those in attendance? Ashley, Dani, Domenico and Vanessa (from the series), Perez Hilton, Angela Simmons, Wyclef Jean and Paramore. We wish all of them health, happiness, and good luck in finding soul-mates with the help of MTV.
