Reality Check It Up is the 22nd episode in season 2 of Shake It Up and the 43rd of the overall series. It first aired on June 10, 2012.


CeCe and Rocky throw a viewing party to watch "Shake It Up, Chicago's" feature story on a national TV show True Teen Life, but are shocked when the show makes ridiculous claims such as CeCe having a crush on Gunther, Rocky being a major diva and Tinka being the heart and soul of Shake it Up, Chicago. Quickly the viewing party's guests get offended at Rocky and leave one by one.
