Real World and The Challenge Alum Wes Bergmann’s Wedding Turns Into an MTV Reunion

This is the true story…of wedded bliss!

Wes Bergmann, the Real World: Austin alum who became a mainstay of The Challenge, tied the knot with Amanda Hornick on Friday — and the wedding served as a gathering of MTV reality stars.

Nehemiah Clark, Lacey Buehler, Rachel Moyal and Melinda Stolp — who all called Bergmann their roommate during the 2005 iteration of the long-running reality show — along with The Challenge‘s Devin Walker posed alongside the bride and groom for a group photo shared by the newlywed.

“Married AF,” Bergmann, 33, captioned the shot.

Hornick also shared a dreamy black and white photo of the couple tagged at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City, Missouri.

“Found my best friend & locked him down forever,” she wrote, adding the hashtags #TheLuckiest, #MrAndMrsBergmann and #MarriedAF.

“My favorite part of the wedding was the vows,” Bergmann told MTV News. “They were the most beautiful combination of seriousness and hilarity.”

The former roommates didn’t let the fun end after the wedding. On Saturday, Buehler shared photos of the crew heading to a Kansas City Royals baseball game.

“My best brother friend. One of the few people I don’t look as pale next to,” she captioned a photo with the groom. “Love you and am so happy for you.”

Bergmann was just 19 when he found reality TV fame on the Real World. He then became a fan favorite on MTV’s The Challenge and its spin-off Champs Vs. Stars, even becoming a winner on The Duel in 2007.

And it appears that the fierce competitor is coming back for more. He told MTV News he planned to “go on the next Challenge and f— some people up.”

21-Year-Old with ‘Paralyzed Stomach’ from Rare Condition Fights for Cure with ‘Pie Face Challenge’

Andrew Belliveau, of Lynn, Massachusetts, was just 10 years old when he was diagnosed with gastroparesis, a condition that he says left his “stomach paralyzed,” causing him to starve from the inside out.

“I was so young at the time so I didn’t even understand what the doctor was saying. We’d never even heard of this, it was so shocking at the time,” Belliveau, 21, tells PEOPLE. “I had just started middle school and I came down with what I thought was your normal stomach bug, but as the weeks progressed it kept getting worse.”

Gastroparesis, or delayed gastric emptying, slows movement of food from the stomach through the digestive tract. Symptoms include nausea and severe vomiting. Belliveau says the condition is like living with the flu virus each day and “as much as you want to eat, your body is not allowing you to.”

“I had to force myself to eat, knowing I’d vomit it up a few hours later. I’d just hoped for the best, that I’d absorb any nutrients that I could. You pay the price for eating. It’s like you’re trapped inside your own body tying to get nutrients. You’re always hungry.”

Although most people with the illness are tube-fed, with some even starving to death, Belliveau says he has been fortunate enough to get a gastric stimulator — which he says eases his symptoms and allows him to eat normally as it functions like a “pacemaker for your stomach.”

Belliveau has been able to help bring awareness to the condition and to other people who suffer from the illness. He recently started the Gastroparesis Pie Face Challenge to raise awareness of the condition, encouraging people to take a pie to the face and donate to G-PACT, a non-profit organization that supports people with gastroparesis.

“I was like, ‘Maybe I can have my own Ice Bucket Challenge,’ ” he tells PEOPLE, noting that he was inspired by HASBRO’s “Pie Face!” game. “I was determined to get it off the ground.”

And he did. Athletes including Boston Red Sox players David Price, Brock Holt, Rick Porcello and more have taken part in the challenge. Their support is extra special to Belliveau, who says he loves to play baseball.

“To see these athletes take part in the challenge is something that truly means a lot to me,” he tells PEOPLE. “They’re inspirations for me to keep going and keep fighting through my illness. Baseball was kind of like my escape throughout it all, so to see them actually take part and help me in my effort … it’s really remarkable.”

He says he’s received messages from gastroparesis patients from around the world, many whom have credited Belliveau for giving them hope.

“Just hearing people, and receiving messages, saying, ‘You’ve given me newfound hope or you’re making my life easier or I thought I was alone,’  It’s just really cool to see how I’ve united millions of people,” Belliveau tells PEOPLE.

Richard Ford On His New Memoir And The Challenge Of Writing About The South

The preteens and teenagers in Richard Ford’s fiction are captivated ― if perplexed ― by their parents’ choices. A 15-year-old drifts around in search of his twin after his parents are arrested for robbing a bank. An even younger boy witnesses a domestic spat just before his mother flees from his life.

Like his protagonists, Ford is taken with the task of understanding his parents. His most recent book, Between Them, is not a fictional exploration of that particular family dynamic, but a pair of memoirs, one dedicated to his father, who died when Ford was 16, and one to his mother.

“Hardly an hour goes by on any day that I do not think something about my father,” he writes of Parker Ford, a hardworking traveling salesman forced to stay still after a major heart attack. Of his mother, Edna Akin, he writes, “The act of considering my mother’s life is an act of love.” 

Of the pair and his relationship with them: “Our parents intimately link us, closeted as we are in our own lives, to a thing we’re not, forging a joined separateness and a useful mystery, so that even together with them we are also alone.”

This sort of matter-of-fact observation is what Ford has come to be known for, and accounts for his categorization as a writer of “dirty realism,” alongside Raymond Carver, Tobias Wolff and Cormac McCarthy. The style lends itself well to memoiristic writing, where analysis of one’s own life runs the risk of slipping into sentimentality. That’s not the case for Ford; by describing the details of his parents’ lives, and describing what he failed to ever learn about them, he gracefully pays them tribute.

Below, the author discusses the challenges of memoir-writing and his own Southern upbringing:

Is this your story, your parent’s story, or something of both?

Their story. It’s their story. It’s not my story at all. I mean, I get to tell it because I’m the only one who knows it. I’m the only person left alive who knew my parents. And so it’s inescapable if I want to testify to their experience that I be the person who tells it. I wasn’t obsessively trying to keep myself out of it, but I never imagined it as being my story, or that their importance as two people owed itself to me in any way.

How did the writing process differ for you, between writing fiction and writing these short memoirs?

Well, it was sort of a sensate difference, in that it seems starker to write about my parents because it all depended on the factual rudiments of their lives. So it seemed a little grainier, whereas writing fiction for me, which I’ve done for most of my life, has kind of a plushness to it, as if underneath the surface there’s a volume. And with any kind of nonfiction writing that depends on facts entirely, there is not that plushness. Even when I was provisionally commenting on things that [my parents] did ― supposing this or supposing that ― it still seemed fastened to the mast of the book’s factual underpinning.

You’ve talked about writing and word choice as a mode of discovery ― the meaning of a sentence may change based on a desired tone or sound. How did this function for you when writing about true things rather than made-up ones?

That’s a good question, because you still do ― one still does ― write a sentence, and you come to a point at which you need a verb, or you need even an adjective. In a piece of fiction, you can choose a word without any investment in its content. Only an investment in its effect, or where it might lead the sentence. With a piece of nonfiction you still have a choice. But you have to say about the word and its use, “Is this accurate?” Accuracy is not a phenomenon in writing fiction in the same way that it is a phenomenon in writing memoir or writing nonfiction.

There are some kinds of accuracies in fiction that obtain. If you’re writing about Great Falls, Montana, you can’t say the Missouri River runs south there. There is that sort of geographical accuracy, but even that can be subject to all kinds of fantastical whims. But still, I think, that the Missouri River runs north there is kind of inescapable.

I remember one time I wrote a story for The New Yorker, and I put the address of the YWCA, and let’s say that I said that the YWCA was at 613 2nd Street NW. And the fact checker for The New Yorker called me and said, you know, the YWCA is actually at 132 2nd Street S, and I said, “That’s fine, but it doesn’t have enough syllables.” And they said, “Well, no, this is where it is.” I said, “No, just go away.”

I was raised by two people, and they each had a view of things and a view of me, and I had a view of them which was not always consonant. I felt like if I tried to make everything completely add up, it would renounce something true about the book.
Richard Ford

These two memoirs have some redundancies and also some contradictions. Why did you choose to include them?

I was raised by two people, and they each had a view of things and a view of me, and I had a view of them which was not always consonant. I felt like if I tried to make everything completely add up, it would renounce something true about the book.

Books are written by human beings. I knew that I was leaving some things inconsistent, and I was willing to do that for the sake of a certain kind of accuracy. But also, I wasn’t there. I was there after 1944, but I wasn’t there before that.

Entire paragraphs of this book are composed of strings of questions, without answers. Why did you choose to do this?

Regarding my father, since his absence was predominant in my life, it was to try to penetrate those absences, rather than just saying, “I don’t know,” which wouldn’t make much of a story. I thought that the questioning strategy for the narrator ― me ― was in and of itself interesting.

It reminds me of some of your stories.

And in Canada also. I think it’s just something that ― in the end of “Rock Springs,” when the narrator says, “Would you think he was anybody like you?” you want to give that question over to the reader in an almost conversational way.

I do it because there are certain stories in my past, that I didn’t write, but Frank O’Connor did, that seem to me to be touching and alluring, because they represent, in their first-person interrogative style, a certain kind of human impulse to understand what is otherwise not understandable. There’s a way, when you answer the questions that you pose, of gaining dominion over your life, and demonstrating that dominion. I guess that’s why.

How has your Southern upbringing influenced your approach to writing?

Well, I grew up down the street from Eudora Welty. I started off with the assumption that one could be a writer. You could be from where I was from and be a writer. It was something that was supported in the community.

I think also, because I grew up in a racist society, in which we were constantly being told that what wasn’t true was true, that I had a natural and have a natural skepticism about what I receive, and what I’m told. And that causes me to try to provide explanations for things that I don’t believe, and that’s a way in which fiction can operate. Fiction can be a kind of imaginative explanation of something, when the discrepancy between apparent fact and truth is too wide to believe.

Fiction can be a kind of imaginative explanation of something, when the discrepancy between apparent fact and truth is too wide to believe.
Richard Ford

Even though you’re from the South, you tend to set your stories elsewhere.

Well, because everybody had written about everything I knew before I got there, and had done it better than I was going to be able to do it. If I had just let myself become a writer of the South, about Southern topics, for Southern readers, I wasn’t ever going to be a great writer, and that’s what I wanted to be. And I still do. And I had to be able to have a subject over which I was the world’s greatest expert. I was not going to be the world’s greatest expert about the South. First of all, I didn’t like the South very much, and second of all, I liked the literature that I knew about the South immoderately. Faulkner, Welty, Flannery O’Connor, Walker Percy. I thought that stuff was just great. Why did there need to be another one of them, which was all I was going to be able to be?

How has your parents’ life on the road impacted you as a writer?

I know in the book I call them transients. And in a sense they were people who didn’t, until I was born, stay in one place very long. And so I’m on a constant quest for some new experience that I could come to know and maybe use. I just never have been comfortable feeling, “This is my home and, by god, I have to stay here.”

And my parents ― my parents were both in their own way fleeing certain circumstances that obviously didn’t make them very happy. Without being miserable and malcontents, and they weren’t because they found each other at a very early age and immediately started making each other wildly happy. So when I think about where I reside, I think I reside wherever my wife is.

Do you think you’ll write more memoirs in the future, or are you more likely to return to fiction for now?

I don’t think I have anything else to write in a memoiristic way. I’ve written a few essays that are kind of memoiristic. My agent, who was very taken by the character of my grandfather really would like me to write a book about him, but I don’t know what I would write. He was a force of nature sort of guy, and did as best he could to ― he was a rakish guy, a real-chaser-after women.

And I’m certainly not going to write any autobiographies. As close as this memoir comes to autobiography, that’s close enough for me.

Stephen Colbert Happily Takes Trump’s Challenge To ‘Say It To My Face’

President Donald Trump recently expressed frustration about media outlets that quote anonymous sources in negative stories about his job performance. During his Feb. 24 speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference, Trump dared these negative sources — if they’d like to say “Donald Trump is a horrible, horrible human being” — to “say it to my face.”

Well, Stephen Colbert is happy to take on that challenge.

“Sir …” he said after the clip played, to applause from the crowd. “It would be my honor to say it to your face.” He beckoned the camera closer, smashing his face against the glass to make sure his message was crystal clear.

Just before that, Colbert had a very simple, but poignant, line about the president during his opening monologue.

After spending part of this monologue responding to the borderline unbelievable ending to the Oscars on Sunday ― where “La La Land” erroneously won Best Picture until it was announced that “Moonlight” was the true winner ― Colbert transitioned to Trump.

“Speaking of heartbreaking mistakes,” Colbert said, followed by a slight pause. “Donald Trump … “ he continued, to the crowd’s applause.

When the audience finally settled down, Colbert began to talk about Trump’s upcoming address to a joint session of Congress, where the president is expected to present a plan for the nation’s healthcare.

Yet earlier on Monday at the White House, Trump had said the mystifying line “Nobody knew that healthcare could be so complicated.”

After showing the clip of the president’s quote, Colbert followed up his “heartbreaking” comment with a more poignant response to Trump.

“It’s just that you didn’t know,” Colbert said, “That’s like if I performed open-heart surgery tomorrow and said, ‘Wow, nobody said it’d be so wet in here.’”

Heartbreaking for sure.

Even Some Humanitarian Hounds Are Getting In On The Ice Bucket Challenge

The ALS ice bucket challenge has taken the world by storm as people have dumped buckets of ice over their heads for an important cause. (To date it has raised more than $ 100 million for the ALS Association.) Most recently though, the challenge has caught on with some adorable members of another species.

Watch these hilarious (and dog-safe!) spins below — perhaps you’ll even be inspired to get your own furry friend involved.


We love this for two reasons: 1. Ammo the dachshund has a shower cap on. A SHOWER CAP! 2. The owner uses warm water on Ammo, making the challenge completely dog-safe, and a whole lot more pleasant.


An ice bucket challenge in which doggie treats come out of the bucket? No wonder these pooches were completely thrilled to be “splashed!”


Ya know, just another heroic day in the life of this police pooch.

By now, you’re probably familiar with ALS, or Lou Gehrig’s disease, because of this viral challenge, but did you know that dogs can be affected by a similar condition?

Degenerative myelopathy (DM) affects canines in a similar way ALS affects humans. DM is a progressive spinal-cord disorder that starts out causing weakness in the hind legs, and may eventually lead to paralysis of the dog’s entire back end within six months to a year, according to the GA Veterinary Rehabilitation, Fitness & Pain Management clinic. There is currently no cure for DM.

Meeting the Challenge of Social Problems via Agent-Based Simulation

Meeting the Challenge of Social Problems via Agent-Based Simulation


Social sciences are moving to the next stage. One ofthe promising methodologies is agent-based computer simulation. In a series ofworkshops on Agent-Based Ap- proaches in Economic and Social Complex Systems (AESCS), ground-breaking studies of complex economic and social phenomena using computational approaches are being presented and discussed. This volume contains papers selected from pre- sentations at the AESCS ’02 held at the University ofTokyo, Japan, on August 16, 2002. The workshop was the second in a series ofPacific Rim activities in interdis- ciplinary areas of social and computational sciences, the first workshop having been held in Shimane, Japan, May 21-22, 2001. The objective of AESCS workshops is to promote worldwide multidisciplinary activities in multiagent computational economics, organizational science, social dynamics, and complex systems. AESCS brings together researchers and practitio- ners from diverse fields, such as computer science, economics, physics, sociology, psychology, and complex theory, in order to understand emergent and collective phenomena in economic, organizational, and social systems.A ESCS also provides an opportunity for discussion ofthe effectiveness and limitations ofcomputational models and methodologies for the social sciences. The second AESCS workshop focused on the importance ofcumulative progress in agent-based simulation in the social sciences through discussions ofcommon tasks, standard computational models, replication and validation issues, and evalu- ation and verification criteria for the results.

New Web Series Will Challenge Your Narrow Definition Of Art

“Autointerventionist” artists Douglas Paulson and Christopher Robbins met for the first time a few years ago while living abroad in Denmark and Serbia, respectively. Although it was Robbins who, in the search of like-minded creators, first reached out to Paulson, it was Paulson that suggested that they meet.

But they wouldn’t meet just anywhere, Paulson explained. They would meet in the exact midpoint between their two locations, the middle of a pond located in the southern Czech Republic, and not communicate again until they saw each other there at high noon at an agreed upon date.

It was an art project to be sure, but maybe not the kind that your high school art teacher assigned you in 2D workshop. Nevertheless, it’s the subject of the inaugural episode of “The Art Assignment,” an adamantly interactive web series by former Indianapolis Museum Of Art curator Sarah Urist Green. The series’ goal, to “demystify the art-making process and bring you to a wider understanding of what art is and what it could be,” is evident throughout the episode, embedded above.

“Hold on, I understand why this is, like, beautiful and metaphorically resonant, but this is not The Metaphorically Resonant Assignment. It’s The Art Assignment,” Sarah’s co-host and husband John Green protests after Paulson and Robbins’ border-crossing and definition-bending artwork is introduced. “Why is that art?”

“People have been arguing for a long time that art doesn’t have to be an object or material. It can be something like Roy Ascott said: triggers for experiences… The definition [for art] has broadened.” Sarah explains.

It certainly has. Sarah traveled across the country to interview Paulson and Robbins in New York for the web series, and is excited to visit more creative spaces. “I think for lesser known art hubs, Kansas City has a good cool art scene, Minneapolis has a great art scene, and there are places, of course, all over the country,” she told HuffPost Arts, “and I’m really looking forward to continuing to discover new places.”

Each stop will include an artist and an “assignment”, one that viewers will be encouraged to attempt themselves. The assignments will be diverse: some in the future might delve into more traditional forms, but at least one will include the making of a GIF.

But are GIFs really art? Will they one day find their place in museums? This question made the former curator laugh. “I’m sure that an animated GIF has been shown in a museum already, but I think that the younger generation, as they grow up, maybe the distinctions between these mediums, like a video and a GIF and a photo, I think those will be less distinct and people will be more comfortable.”

John, at least, has been convinced. He’s already scheduled his “meet in the middle” masterpiece for this week, when he’ll trudge through the snow and slush of Indianapolis to see a familiar face in a wholly unfamiliar backyard.

The art world might be changing, and only for the more exciting.

Sugar Vs. Fat: What We Can Learn from One Weight Loss Challenge

Sugar Vs. Fat: What We Can Learn from One Weight Loss ChallengeThe twins, Alexander and Chris van Tulleken, are 35 years old and both, as Alexander describes them, "gluttons." As they approached middle age, they realized they needed to pay better attention to their diets if they were going to maintain a healthy weight. For a month Alexander cut out carbohydrates — pasta and bread, yes, but also fruits and vegetables, which are high in carbs via their natural sugars. (He didn't do a no-fat diet because everyone needs a little bit of fat for their bodies to operate properly.) Other than that, they could eat as much as they wanted, though the two also exercised the same amount, so any weight they lost would be controlled on that front. At the end of the month, Alexander had lost 9 pounds, and Chris had also lost weight (though the amount is unspecified).
