Catfish, the TV show turned buzzword, is back to help love-struck young adults track down their Internet paramours IRL (in real life).

Think you don't have anything in common with people who have autism?

MTV's Teen Wolf Creates Memorial Site for Fans to Mourn Major Character's Death

SPOILER ALERT: The text below reveals major plot points to the Monday, March 17, episode of MTV's Teen Wolf

MTV is launching a special website for angst-ridden fans of its Teen Wolf series to collectively mourn the sudden death of one of the show's main characters in Monday night's episode.

Immediately after the third season's penultimate episode ended at 11 p.m. ET, MTV had the site TeenWolfMemorial.com ready to offer solace for people upset that the character Allison Argent wound up on the wrong end of a sword wielded by a mythical Japanese demon.

Argent, played by actress Crystal Reed, is the ex-girlfriend of Scott McCall, the drama's lead character.

Argent's death shouldn't entirely be a surprise; MTV has been advertising that one of the show's main characters would be killed off. The network kept that character's identity a secret, although the announcement that someone was doomed launched plenty of online speculation.

During a pause in taping, while props got rearranged and lighting and sound were checked, a bikini-topped Miley Cyrus amused the soundstage audience by sharing an epiphany.

"You can look at life one way or the other," the 21-year-old music star said, "half-naked or half-clothed."

Her young fans appreciably and knowingly laughed. The quiet, mostly off-camera moments Tuesday night at Sunset Gower Studios in Hollywood seemed more unplugged than the show by the same name.

Apparently every day is a party in the U.S.A. for Miley Cyrus.

The controversial pop star, 20, didn't hold back in her one-hour documentary, Miley: The Movement, which premieres on MTV Oct. 2 (10 p.m. ET) and covers an array of topics from her notorious VMAs performance to her buzzed-about haircut and even features her "SMS (Bangerz)" duet partner, Britney Spears.

"Right now I'm at a point in my career where I can just be exactly who I want to be," she says in the special. "I can just have fun and not think about any kind of repercussion and just go for what you want to do. That causes a lot of reaction but I think there's something about watching people grow up."

It sounds like a long lasting friendship between Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino isn't a shore thing.

The former Jersey Shore costars, who experienced many ups and downs during the course of their time living together while filming MTV's hit show, are no longer in touch.

After successfully battling ovarian cancer for the second time and sharing her journey on PEOPLE.com, Diem Brown is back to blogging. This time around, she will not only share updates on her own life, but also about competing on her new show, MTV's The Challenge: Rivals II.

Getting hurt after you reluctantly open up to someone isn't pretty. This week's episode of Rivals 2 was really hard for me to watch. I've known that I'm horrible with dealing with confrontation and being hurt emotionally, but watching it unfold on TV was particularly difficult to stomach.
