The tribe has spoken. Sort of. Well, stay tuned. Whether it's from the privileged enclaves of Southern California or the bug-infested jungles of Costa Rica, reality show superstars Heidi and Spencer Pratt continue to rattle pop culture's cage with their well-publicized on-again, off-again antics. On Wednesday, the Pratts pleaded on live television to be allowed to rejoin NBC's "I'm a Celebrity . . . Get Me Out of Here!," despite having abruptly quit the newly launched show Tuesday night.

The TABLOID world -- led by the magazine Us Weekly, along with the paradigm-exploding websites TMZ and Perezhilton.com -- is simultaneously bursting and flat. Bursting, in the sense that these media spill over with several dozen characters whose ongoing stories are meticulously and minutely dispensed to readers in the same lurid and addicting manner that a 19th century Penny Dreadful once was. The unbalance of Britney Spears, the growing pains of Miley Cyrus and the druggy tailspin of Amy Winehouse -- to name a few favorite plots -- add up over the hours to grand Flaubertian narratives about femininity, drugs, mental health, motherhood, legal proceedings, controlling parents and violence.

Balloon Boy, the White House party crashers, Octomom, Jon & Kate, Speidi -- nearly 10 years after the first "Survivor" offered us winner and dubious role model Richard Hatch, reality television remains the genre that just keeps on giving. Ten years ago, who among us could have imagined a nation riveted by the semi-scripted rantings of various "real" housewives or the emotional and physical exertions of the morbidly obese? (P.T. Barnum being already dead and all.) Certainly, as a concept, reality programming offers the possibility, and rare actuality, of personal drama and cultural revelation.

Lauren Conrad has kept a low TV profile since she ended her reality TV days of MTV's "Laguna Beach" and its spinoff "The Hills. " And she's not itching to get back in that spotlight. "I only ever got to tell half my story," Conrad told Marie Claire, which she covers in the July 2013 issue. "People are very quick to judge these days, especially behind the anonymity of a screen name. It's very easy to say, 'I hate her, I hate what she wore, she seems mean.' But you're only seeing a small fraction of her life.
