Another toothbrush incident on The Real World

This week is filled with Real World news!

In case you've wiped it from your memory as part of some sort of intensive post-traumatic therapy, The Real World New Orleans was a show that existed. On it, cast member Ryan Leslie discovered a fellow housemate peed on his toothbrush and he tried to get the police involved over it. The intrepid folks at the Times-Picayune were on it even before the show aired.

But it seems Real World Chicago alum Tonya Cooley has him beat with her accusation of toothbrush assault: according to a lawsuit, she's saying male cast members raped her with a toothbrush while taping the spin-off Challenge: The Ruins. Cooley also claims show producers were aware of the incident but didn't do anything.

A word of caution to anyone heading to Baton Rouge to audition for the show tomorrow: if you end up being among the seven feral humans selected to get drunk on television, beware of toothbrush assault.
