Real World Cancun Proves To Be A Total Clusterf**k

Last week’s tale of the taco continued to haunt the Real World roommates last night as lingering tensions between Ayiiia and Jonna (pronounced illogically as Jzzzhon-ay) festered into some sort of us vs. them situation in Cancun. The girls – Ayiiia, Jasmine, and Emileeeee – all banded together against the guys and Jonna, and for twenty minutes, we saw nothing but beautiful, unadulterated, female cattiness in the form of bitchy mutterings and furtive stares (not to mention a lesbian interlude in night vision). However, at the halfway mark of the episode, things got all sorts of wacky. Emileeeee — who I always pegged as an unstable powder keg — flipped out at Joey when he pestered everyone about being ready for “work” (I say “work” because it involved swimming with dolphins, cornering pelicans, doing shots, and lying around in hammocks). Anyway, the girl flipped her lid in an explosion of expletives, and when Ayiiia didn’t defend her craziness, Emileeeeee realized that bitch wasn’t a true friend after all. And so Emilee and Jasmine spent their day in paradise bitching and moaning about Ayiiiia, ultimately brokering a truce with the boys and Jonna and leaving Ayiiia as the true house outcast. And that’s when the real fun began.

People at work be warned: the uncensored language is very NSFW (lots of f-bombs, c-words, and everything in between). After the jump, another argument that is literally about nothing. It’s not as explosive, but watching Ayiiia and Jasmine work each other into a tizzy instead of directly communicating with each other is sort of hilarious. Enjoy…
