The next day, Arissa talks to Alton. Arissa says that she got it in her mind last night that she was attracted to Steve, and she told Irulan about it. And then, Irulan went and told Frank that Arissa was going to sleep with Steve. Of course, since we didn't see Irulan and Frank's conversation, we'll never know what Irulan actually said. Fucking late-night camera crews. Also, where in the hell did Irulan and Frank have this conversation that it didn't show up on one of the bedroom infrared cameras? I've said this before, but they really need to set this show up like Big Brother, where every angle is just covered by cameras, so that this sort of thing doesn't happen. In an interview, Alton says that Irulan has a big mouth.
Irulan shows Alton some photos. I have no idea what they are pictures of, but they feature a KKK figure. Maybe it's some sort of art installation? Who knows. Anyway, Arissa is sitting near them, looking kind of pissed off. In an interview, Irulan says that she noticed Arissa was ignoring her. Arissa gets up and leaves. Irulan asks what her problem is. Alton wisely says that Irulan should talk to Arissa about it. A Real World roomie who doesn't get in the middle of controversy and try to create more drama? How in the hell did Alton get on this show? Irulan says that she's going to talk to Arissa right now.
In case you just ran to the fridge to grab some ice cream (and could you get me a soda while you're up?), Irulan tells us in an interview that Arissa is "livid," because she thinks Irulan was gossiping about her. Irulan and Arissa lie in bed and discuss the issue, and suddenly Irulan is crying and saying that she's angry that Frank lied. How did they get to that point? In an interview, Irulan says that Frank feels she implied that Arissa and Steve had sex, but that Frank made an incorrect assumption. Irulan tells Arissa that she's not the type to "put people on shout," and that she doesn't want to ruin her friendship with Arissa. In an interview, Irulan says that she doesn't want to create a situation where she can't be friends with Arissa. Irulan yells that Frank is an asshole. Arissa says it's not Frank's fault, but Irulan says that it is, because you shouldn't come into someone's room and say, "I heard you guys had sex." Well, with those roommates, you could say that and it would be both true and applicable nine times out of ten. Irulan denies that she said Arissa and Steven had sex, or even came close to saying that. Of course, she could be totally lying, and we would have no idea. Also, Frank is socially retarded. Of course you don't just walk into someone's room and say that you heard they had sex. Arissa and Irulan make up. In an interview, Arissa says that she can only go by what Irulan said happened. Or she could go by what Frank says. I'm just saying. It's not like she has no other options. In an interview, Irulan says that Frank has to realize that his words have weight. Is this really that big a deal? At some future point, Arissa and Irulan confront Frank. Irulan yells at Frank and tells him not to put words in her mouth. She didn't say that Steven and Arissa had sex, so Frank shouldn't go to Arissa and say that Irulan made that claim. Okay, didn't Frank ask Arissa if she hooked up with Steve? Because in my experience, hooking up does not necessarily equal sex. Then again, I don't put people on shout, so what the hell do I know? Frank looks trapped as we go to commercial.
