NEW YORK – "A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila" is apparently over for Bobby Banhart.
The 25-year-old male film student selected last month by Tequila on her popular MTV reality dating show is no longer — or maybe never was — dating the 26-year-old bisexual Internet celebrity.
During MTV's live New Year's Eve programming, Tequila said that Banhart had broken up with her because of her hectic work schedule. "He couldn't handle it," she said. "He broke up with me."
However, Banhart said in a Dec. 30 message posted on MySpace that "she never called me after the last show and no one would give me her number."
The network announced Wednesday that a second season of "A Shot at Love" will air this spring and will once again feature Tequila looking for love, reality TV style, among a group of men and women.
"This time I wanna find love for real," Tequila said during "Tila Tequila's New Year's Eve Masquerade 2008."
Casting notices circulated online for a second season of "A Shot at Love" before the finale, the network's most-watched broadcast since November 2005.
