Real World Reunion
Someone has a question for Tami: "It takes a very open-minded and caring person to work at a support center for gays and lesbians. Why did you have the biggest reaction to finding out your roommate was a lesbian?" We see a clip of Jon and Tami finding out Beth A. is a lesbian, because she's wearing a shirt that says, "I'm not gay, but my girlfriend is." Tami says that because of her job, she could not disassociate lesbian and HIV positive in her mind, and then apologizes to Beth for not getting to know her. I may be wrong, but aren't lesbians (as long as they don't shoot up) at a lower risk for HIV than heterosexual women? And you'd think that Tami would have to know statistics like that. Therefore, she's an idiot. Not that I didn't know that already.
It's still attack Tami time, as someone says that she's coming off so "pretty and wonderful right now" and Tami interrupts, "No, I'm not. I'm a bitch," and rolls her eyes. The questioner basically says that's what he was going to say, and asks if it's an act. Tami says that we all have our hang-ups and she's not "faboo all the time." Becky from NY speaks up and says that people want the cast members to be politically correct all the time, but they're human. Jon gives the obligatory "You can't judge us" speech. Tami says that the show is real, but perception lies in the hands of the editors, and they have the tendency to make a character out of people, so viewers don't see all of you. Heather yells out that the editors use what you give them, and if you act a certain way, that's what they will use, so don't say you weren't really like that because you really were. I knew Tami would pay for that "ghetto queen" comment.
The SF cast is on deck, and Puck appears out of nowhere to join them. Alison asks the LA cast if they watched the SF season. Kevin holds up a sign that says, "We want Puck." Oh, he'll get Puck. Beth S. says she thinks the SF house had more respect, and that they got along better except for the whole Puck thing. Kevin tells us he's interested in meeting Puck because he likes non-conformists. I hope he likes sociopaths too.
Alison introduces the SF cast, saying their season included "a gay man's struggle with life" and ran the gamut from "snot rockets to terminal illness." Seriously, who writes these things? Snot rockets to terminal illness? We see clips of the SF season. Eric cheers Puck getting arrested in the first episode. Backstage, Puck mocks Judd, which is way too easy to do. Just before they go onstage, Puck says to Judd, "Buckle up. I got a bone to pick with you." And people wonder why they cast Puck? The producers live for this stuff.
