Ugh. This story has my three least-favorite things. Rape, Real World, and toothbrushes.

Tonya Cooley, star of 2002's Real World: Chicago, is suing MTV, claiming that when she passed out on The Real World/Road Rules Challenge: The Ruins, a castmate inserted a toothbrush into her vagina and rubbed her labia with it. Gross. She alleges that all this took place while the cameras were rolling, and MTV did nothing to stop it.

Considering how shitty and trashy this show has become in recent years, I wouldn't put it past a cast member to do this sort of thing, nor MTV to sit idly by while it happens.

MTV offers in its standard Real World reality contract:

  • Producers are under no obligation to conduct background checks on your fellow cast members.

  • Interacting with other cast members carries the risk of “non-consensual physical contact” and should you contract AIDS, etc. during such an interaction, MTV is not responsible.

MTV claims they're not responsible if you get raped on their show, but, let's face it: MTV should be pretty responsible if you get raped on their show. I'm surprised this doesn't happen more often. (TMZ)
