A few years ago we received an advanced DVD copy of the “The OC” on our door step – that was our first hint that where we chose to live was about to become a character in a TV series. Since then, “The OC” has gone on to achieve incredible success. Next up: Laguna Beach, The Real OC on MTV was supposed to show you what living here was like. It was fun, but also featured a city just a few miles south of us and spared our neighborhood all the hassles. Now it has come full circle and MTV is in our neighborhood. Depending on your perspective, this is either cool or lame. If you live here, the MTV cameras are not so cool – no need to go into details, but trust me on this. Otherwise, enjoy, MTV’s Newport Harbor:The Real Orange County.
I have two young boys – this is what they will grow up among. Geez, it is getting hard to be a parent.
