Two Real World cast members arrested; criticize cops, threaten death on Twitter

Two cast members from The Real World New Orleans, the 2010 season, were arrested in Panama City Beach and subsquently attacked cops and others on Twitter, and one of them, Jemmye Carroll, threatened someone who allegedly punched her with death. While they did not smear their own feces on cell walls, that post-arrest reaction on Twitter is similar to Abram Boise’s arrest last month, when he bragged about his actions online.

Jemmye and Ryan Knight “were arrested on Saturday, March 12 at 7:54 p.m. for disorderly conduct,” Radar reported. They “were at a bar on Saturday night in Panama City Beach, Florida where Carroll claims a bouncer gave her a black eye and the two former cast members were arrested and taken to jail.”

Saturday, Ryan (who’s not Ryan Leslie, the cast member that season involved in the toothbrush-peeing incident) wrote on Twitter, “Got jumped because some fucking bouncer hit @JustJem24. I got him but didnt go so well for the 3on 1.”

Jemmye, whose Twitter profile says “Yea im that party bitch from MTV” (sigh), explained the incident by writing, “went 2 jail Bc a security guy punched me black eye from a grown ass man yet the police arrest me This is y women are to scared 2 go 2 cops.” The next day, she wrote, “My eye looks ridiculous this morning….. I legit might kill this dude…..,” referring to the security guard.

Later she bragged, in horrifically written English, Jemmye wrote, “DeSpite my concussion & doctor orders…I’m partying tonight…Bc thats what I do.”

Stay classy, MTV cast members and MTV casting directors.

Review: Married at First Sight

Marriage At First Sight

In an era of Tinder and Grindr, instant acceptance or dismissal of a potential partner, or instant sex with another body, Married at First Sight offers the thrill of watching strangers deal with the very basics of relationships.

Beyond the headline-grabbing premise, the series has turned out to be a stripped-down, authentic exploration of something very interesting. Read the full review.
