what freaked Tonya out? could it have been the Real World protests?
Tuesday, we saw The Real World Chicago’s Tonya breaking down and getting the heck out of Chicago. But was the cause of her distress really just her self-identified kidney infection? Liquid Generation thinks not: “I suppose that this caused the cast much distress, so much distress that some of them contemplated getting the fuck out of there. Tonya was the first to jump, although she used her illness as a cover-up.” One clue: the paint visible on the door behind her was thrown on the door during one of the protests. Liquid Generation is also sponsoring an e.mail campaign to get the cast to submit to interviews with them.
+ plus: Chris says he “got along best with Keri, Kyle, and Theo,” and says Aneesa “becomes pretty selfish.”
