We already know that The Surreal Life 4 spawned a romance between Adrianne Curry and Chris Knight; now, there’s a report that a second surreal romance has resulted from the series. Marcus Schenkenberg and Joanie Laurer, aka Chyna Doll, “were seen locking lips at Scores West in the wee hours of Saturday morning,” Page Six reports. Perhaps more disturbing was when Chyna’s nudity.
