Real World Reunion
This is a cue to check out how the LA cast is doing. Tami tells us that after the show you get a lot of media attention and people say things about you and you never knew they felt that way. In case you have no clue what she is talking about, they cut to a clip of Tami asking Beth S. why she said that Tami just married her husband for money. Beth claims she never said that, and that Tami shouldn't believe everything she reads in print. I totally think Beth said that, and I think she was right. Anyway, Tami says that's why she asked, because she wanted to hear it from Beth. The LA cast is on deck as we cut to commercial.
Before the LA cast comes out, we see a clip package of highlights from their season, and we also see the cast reacting to the clips backstage, which is actually kind of cool. When they show the clip where Tami tells David, "It wasn't not funny," Glenn and Jon mock her backstage and they all laugh. When they show the clip where Tami slams the bathroom door on the head of Beth S., the audience laughs. The LA cast comes out. Glenn is wearing a T-shirt and jeans. Dude, you could have made an effort. Beth A. is looking very different than she did on the show with longer hair and a dress. Tami is in all black. Jon is wearing a red button-down shirt, black jeans and of course a black cowboy hat. David is wearing a hockey jersey, but the logo is blurred. Beth S. has on a really, really short black skirt. Irene is wearing pants, a shirt and a vest and she looks about ten years older than the rest of them. Dom and Aaron didn't show up.
Alison says they aren't going to tease them, and starts right off by asking Tami and David if they've seen each other since David left. They haven't, but they talked at lunch. David says issues were left as they were, but they've all matured in a year and a half, and when they all saw each other, they breathed a sigh of relief. Tami says this meeting gives them closure, and they all want to just be friends.
Someone asks Beth S., "Regarding the Tami and David incident, do you feel somewhat responsible for instigating it by claiming it was a form of rape?" We see a clip of Beth S. yelling "No means no" at David. It annoyed me more that she was wearing a baseball cap with her pajamas than her ridiculous rape charges. Beth says that she doesn't think about the incident anymore, and that she talked to David, but that she admits it was not "a rape situation." David says rape is a powerful word, and he may be "an a-hole" for pulling the blanket off, and he takes "responsible [sic] for that," but not for rape. Alison asks how watching the tape makes them feel. Tami says she sees David's side now, but when she was in the situation, it changed in the middle for her. David interrupts and says he just wants to give Tami a hug, which he has to climb on top of Beth A. to accomplish. Backstage, Rachel watches on the monitor and says, "You guys, they're hugging." Judd says it's fake, but Cory doesn't think so. Rachel says they were getting along at lunch. Mohammed says he's not into "solving things in thirty seconds" and I agree.
