HBO Beats Former MTV Real World Cast Member In Bananas Lawsuit

| Filed under: TV NewsLegal Matters

We have no idea why John 'Bananas' Devenanzio thought he could sue HBO for featuring a character that shared his crazzzzy nickname and as it turns out, the judge had no idea either!

Entourage fans will definitely remember Johnny Drama's animated show Johnny Bananas — the show within a show which featured the fictional actor voicing a monkey. MTV Real World fans, on the other hand, MIGHT remember a nickname given to one of the cast members during a season in Key West, Florida.

Devenanzio filed a lawsuit against HBO last year that alleged the Entourage character was an "unwarranted, unauthorized and unfavorable mention of plaintiff's name and personality and allusions to plaintiff's physical and mental character."

New York Superior Court Judge Lucy Billings didn't quite agree with that notion. She stated in her ruling that the episode, "does not constitute atrocious, indecent or utterly despicable conduct meeting the requirements for an intentional emotional distress claim."

At the end of the day, however, the reality star was thwarted by a technicality. He simply filed the lawsuit after the one-year statute of limitations window had closed.

It sounds like the judge slapped down this lawsuit pretty quickly, but we kinda wish she would have just said this instead: "I'm ruling in favor of the defendant because this shiz is bananas! B-A-N-A-N-A-S!"

LOLz!
