Real World Paula


I just read that Paula from this season's Real World Key West was recently arrested for domestic battery. Not surprising, given that she is portrayed on the show as a crazy person. Looking into the issue further, I came upon this article from the Times all about Paula and whether MTV was irresponsible in casting her notwithstanding her myriad problems: bulemia, anorexia, depression, etc. The article's not particularly interesting, but I was most fascinated by the fact that the New York Times even covered this issue at all. Wonder if they'll do a follow-up piece on her arrest.

Am I the only one who sort of scrolled over the picture and thought "Oh, Tonya Harding got arrested again?"

(Obviously before remembering that TH has, um, filled out as of late.)
