Kevin Powell punches and bites writer.
Original Real World cast member Kevin Powell is apparently still just as angry as the reality TV archetype (which he helped to create) suggests he is. According to Page Six, “Stuff magazine contributor Bart Graham claims Powell sucker-punched him in the face after the two argued about a mutual female friend” earlier this week. The writer tried to leave but Kevin “confronted him again”; Graham says, “This time I grabbed him by his throat and threw him on the ground.” That’s when Kevin “crawled over and bit me in the shin.” Maybe he should have tried that move 12 years ago during his infamous fight with fellow cast member Julie.
