We didn't expect them to keep quiet about claims as horrific as these!

Former Real World castmember Tonya Cooley filed a suit against MTV, Bunim/Murray Productions, Kenneth Santucci and Evan Starkman for the latter two apparently using a tooth brush to violate her on camera while she was passed out during the production of The Real World/Road Rules Challenge: The Ruins, and now, a rep for the production company is denying the claims as completely false!

After "a thorough investigation," they are reporting that they "found Tonya Cooley's claims to be completely baseless."

Well, it does seem odd that cameramen and producers would sit idly by and let castmembers abuse each other in such a disgusting fashion - if only for fear of a situation exactly like this!

But who knows? These shows manage to always find the crazies!

What do U think actually went down??

    why they watched snookie get punched in the face, they watch cast member beat each other up its actually not that hard to believe

    RESPONSE TO PRIOR BLOCK

    Paula Dean is way better than Michele Obama……get over it.

    I doubt they sit idly by. Frankly, I think they probably encourage this sort of thing. They want conflict so nothing a reality show producer does would surprise me.

    If I got a toothbrush put in my vagina I know I wouldn't wait 2 years to do something about it. Jussst sayin!

    Let's not all forget, Tonya was a bit psychotic .. that girl needs some serious therapy. But I agree with Lushh..who waits 2 years? and if she was past out, how did she know it happened?

    Re: Lushh

    She likely didn't just decide to file this…it is a process and it's probably been in the works for awhile.

    Back in the day on the Real World Hawaii, Ruthie was drunk (aka completely shit faced) and was about to drive after leaving a club. Keys in hand heading to the car with a couple of passenger's who were also drunk. The producer's/camera men never interfered. She was actually in the car about to drive off before another cast member came and stopped her.

    So I totally believe RW show production would let sexual violation however "minor" go on and not interject. It may have taken 2 years for her to file suit because she just found out (if she was passed out) or obtained a copy of the footage.

    Re: JadeJones – Actually with Ruthie's season they did interfere. One of the producers was telling her that she shouldn't be driving at all and tried talking her out of it either before or after the other cast members tried. There was a REAL WORLD special about it a few years ago on MTV which I saw.

    Tonya has always been a whole lot of crazy!

    Could be a cover up. It's pretty weird stuff. Sounds like something a frat house might pull.
