    Re: Real World 26: Back To Las Vegas

    This episode last night made me furious on so many levels! The one thing I have to say though is that Adam's friends stepped up and did what they had to do to keep him from going even crazier.

    Actually, the relationship between Mike and Leroy is unlikely only in that it's unlikely that they'd ever have met without being on the show. They're from very different places, but they've had similar experiences in terms of abusive families, and they're both clearly the smartest, most level-headed guys there. They also seem to be the most serious about working and supporting themselves. Oddly, they have more in common than you'd think they have at first glance. God knows, given Adam's volatility and Dustin's childishness, it makes sense that they'd look at each other and think, "Well, I'm certainly glad there's at least one other semi-sane guy in the house."

    I wonder how much of it her being an idiot and how much is her being controlled in an almost (maybe even truly) abusive relationship.

    I feel badly for what happened to Nany in her past. She just broke up with a guy that was horrible to her. And I don't know if he was hitting her recently or not, but it is obviously something she hasn't taken the time to figure out. Women who have been abused once are more likely to be abused again in new relationships if they don't straighten up their minds first. It isn't that she is drawn to Adam because she likes the drama per say. It is the only way she knows relationships to "work." Even so, it is difficult to understand how she couldn't see that Adam is the worst possible option. It is tiring. I hope Adam goes home so this story line can just be over with. Adam is trash and there is nothing more to say about him. But Nany is a jerk too. I mean, I can understand how she can justify cheating on her ex, but how can she be friendly with Adam's "girlfriend" and then hook up with Adam? Horrible. The roommates are babying the girl too much. She is not that innocent.
    I agree with Leroy a lot when it comes to Adam. At times I think he is the smartest guy in the house. And then he treats women like objects and I vomit in my mouth a little.

    I'm interested to see how things go when Leroy starts acting like Adam.

    I haven't seen the episode in its entirety, but given Adam's behavior at the end of the episode, it's clear he simply shouldn't be there. He may only have punched out a picture, but he was holding onto Nany at the time and his fist came perilously close to hitting her. He can't control his behavior at all, and as a result, he's a danger to himself and to others. If I were one of the women in the house I would insist that he be evicted, and if he weren't, I'd insist on leaving myself.

    Actually, that might be an interesting development--what if the rest of the house said that if Adam isn't tossed off the show, the rest of them are walking out? It's not like they'd want to replace an entire cast.

    Really, though, I'd be surprised if the hotel itself didn't insist on Adam's removal. He's destroying the suite, he's repeatedly made scenes in their club/bar, and he shows absolutely no willingness to change after having been warned that he needs to stop behaving as he has been. He's had his warning, and it didn't help. Now it's time for him to go.

    As for positives, I will say this: it's the first time Dustin's seemed genuinely more concerned about someone other than himself. I didn't like him hauling Nany away physically, but I don't suppose he really had much other choice, given the fact that she was drunk, and she really did need to be removed from the situation post haste. And, to be fair, he had no idea she'd been abused at that point, so he couldn't have known that it might have been a trigger for her to be picked up and dragged away against her will (though, as I said, he was doing it clearly for her own safety when she was in no condition to make a smart decision).

    Speaking of smart decisions, it kind of irritates me that the other two women in the house keep telling Nany that not every guy will treat her like that and that some day a guy will come along who'll be wonderful to her. I agree that not every guy will, or should, treat her like that, but the important thing is that she shouldn't be concerned if she never meets Mr. Right, because no guy is better than a guy who hits you. If Nany had the choice of never finding the right guy or settling for a wrong, abusive guy, the first choice would still be far healthier, emotionally and physically. Dustin actually had that right too: she shouldn't tolerate being hit, period.

    Dustin should have no regrets about removing Nany from the room. Just because she had been in an abusive relationship in the past does not mean she can never be restrained again in life. Especially when she is escalating a violent situation. He handled it as well as anyone could.
    Why does MTV always cast guys who want to hurt the women in the house. The last few seasons, there has been at least one guy who is absolutely disgusting. Overall, there isn't anyone to like. Is there no such thing as a protagonist anymore?

    Dustin was pretty level headed this episode, which is something that I don't think they've shown in Dustin all season. Nany and Adam are both a mess, but it's time for Adam to go. During Adam's first drunken mess tirade I felt he was a little more in control than he was showing and wanted to see how far he could go and how much they would take. This time he was trashed and far more violent. I think the hotel will throw Adam out (especially since they show him throwing an iron out the window next week). MTV should have stepped up to boot him before the hotel had to step in.

    Leroy is getting more and more frustrated. Didn't like they way he chose to make a point by destroying things but it may actually be the only way to get that group to see how ridiculous it is for them to put up with that crap.

    I never said he should have any regrets or that she should never again be restrained in life. In fact, I said he basically had no choice and obviously didn't know she'd been abused before when he dragged her out of the room. I even said she had to be removed, because she was in no position to make a smart decision, because she was intoxicated. I just wish there had been another choice, because someone who's been abused may very well be more traumatized by being physically hauled away than someone who hasn't.
