Real World Reunion
Julie and Heather finally arrive at their hotel. Heather tells some kids in the pool, "No splashing, shorty!" Heather is so sassy. They meet up with Kevin and Becky sitting by the pool. Everyone hugs and stuff. Becky is wearing a crocheted skullcap, which looks pretty good on her. They are all sitting around chatting when Tami from LA walks across the courtyard carrying a baby. Heather gives her the stank-eye. Tami introduces herself and says that no one is there from her cast, so she joins them. Heather repeats that she's not passing judgment (even though she totally is) but that her cast seemed phony. Tami thinks the NY cast has a "slight attitude," and she's right. I love them, but she's right. Heather accuses the people on LA of being always done up for the camera. Tami says she "walked around with scarves on [her] head" half the time. Tami was always herself and she's kind of offended at what Heather is saying. Heather says they showed "every side of [me]." Tami points out that Julie was portrayed as the "naïve, Miss Virgin, Just Don't Know Anything" and Kevin was the "political" and Kevin fills in "angry, black man." Tami presses her luck and says that Heather was portrayed as the "ghetto queen." In a voiceover, Heather says, "What is a ghetto queen?" Julie tells us that the situation with Tami "wasn't cool" and it made for a "tense situation." Everyone just sits there in silence. I guess Tami and Heather won't be swapping recipes anytime soon.
