Remembering The Real World

So lately I've been loving Jezebel, a Gawker Media blog that touts itself as a website featuring "Celebrity, Sex, Fashion. Without The Airbrushing." Today, my love was cemented when they linked to this vintage Real World: Seattle clip. As someone who loved watching the Real World (well, until after the Vegas season) throughout my adolescence and young adulthood, seeing the sauciest moments again via the Internet is kind of the best thing ever.

So, check out that clip. For the uninitiated, some background: Irene has Lyme Disease, and side effects of this illness apparently include raging bitchiness. So, she pretty much picks fights with everyone, blames it on Lyme Disease, and then decides to leave the house. In the clip, she's leaving. She and Steven have a catty squabble before he slaps her (first physical confrontation on the Real World EVER!) and then tosses her teddy bear into the river.

That is a classic episode and clip. I believe I have heard it referrenced as the "slap heard round the world"

I loved that the guy from the seattle season (can't remember his name) was in love with a producer and he yelled that it was "killing him." Drama at its highest. There will always be a special place in my heart, however, for Real World: New Orleans, the best season in my opinion.

p.s. Loree, did you see that Scott Speedman is now dating Cameron Diaz. Read all about it at Bacon Soup.

You're thinking of David, who worked at the fish market and had one green eye and one blue eye. The producer he was so creepily in love with was Kira, and she had to leave the show after they hooked up. Ah, good times.

New Orleans was a great season, too.
