Real World DC: Erika Lauren Wasilewski

Hi. My name is Billy and I am the ex-boyfriend. As reported on [URL="http://www.shabooty.com/2009/07/29/erika-lauren-wasilewski-of-real-world-dcs-ex-boyfriend-confirms-fake-cancer-sob-story-shabooty-exclusive.php"]Shabooty[/URL] I can confirm that this is true. I dated Erika a few years back for only a couple months. Very quickly did I realize that something was not right with her. I would venture to say that she was a compulsive liar. Never have I met somebody so dramatic or attention-starved. Soon the craziness was just too much to handle so I broke up with her. Immediately after breaking up with her she said something along the lines of 'you can't break up with me . . . I . . . I . . . have cancer.' I guess she figured that I would stay with her out of pity. Knowing she was full of **** I instantly called her bluff and she played it off as being extremely offended that I would say something like that to a cancer patient. For the first few months only a select couple people did not believe her. Everybody else figured lying about cancer was so far-fetched that they just went along with it. It wasn't just a one-time lie. She constantly used her cancer as a tool to manipulate scores of people. For some ****ed up reason her whole family was in on the lie and covered for her. For months I was hated in my hometown because I was 'the guy who made fun of the girl with cancer'. Slowly people started to connect the dots and realize that a girl who claimed to be in chemotherapy still had a full head of hair. About 9 months after she initially told me she had cancer, she finally admitted that it was all a lie. It wasn't until after we broke up that I found out she had also faked diabetes, west nile, and having a cancerous growth removed (it was a non-cancerous mole or something). While she was faking cancer she started dating another guy (whom later realized she was insane and became a friend of mine). She manufactured another story about her full-blooded italian grandfather dying (she's 100% polish) and used it for pity with this new guy. I'm not sure of all the details on that, but you can read about it in the Shabooty comments section. Another story about that family that comes to mind is a few months into our relationship her sister cheated on her boyfriend and created a rape story to cover up for her infidelity, so it seems that bat**** crazy is in their genes. I don't know how I am suppose to 'prove' that any of this is true, you can ask anybody from our hometown, everybody knows the story. If anybody has any other questions I will be glad to answer them.

Welcome Billy.
People can change a lot over three years, but not Erika. She is just as awful now as she was three years ago, except she lies about other things instead of having cancer so she can play the victim and get attention. I knew her 3 years ago when all of this cancer stuff happened, and i knew her at Columbia College, where she graduated from this Spring. Not only has Erika lied about having cancer, she was also the biggest wanna-be band groupie for the longest time. She went to a ton of shows and tried to romance various band men via MySpace. MySpace - the place where she has 17,000 friends or something (are you seeing her extreme need for attention yet?) and met seriously almost all of her band boyfriends on after no one in Illinois wanted anything to do with her because everyone here knows shes a lunatic. She dated guys all over the country, and in Canada so no one would know about her "cancer" story. Eventually, much like this, most people found out because someone came forward. I believe one ex-boyfriend from Michigan even commented on Tim's blog that contained the "cancer" conversation with Erika where she admitted she was lying- he had no idea. Her current boyfriend lives in Ohio. I wouldnt be surprised if he was clueless up until now either. Erika also created quite the scene at the University Center dorm at Columbia College Chicago in Fall 07. A friend of mine was friends with her 3 roommates in her dorm apartment. I walked in the lobby of the building and saw Erika in there crying and yelling to Police Officers. I laughed immediately, because i know her from home and know shes insane. This psychotic broad CALLED THE COPS on her MUSLIM ROOMMATES for EATING HER BACON. Muslims, do not eat pork. She also had called their RA's on them and told them to search the room, where they found liquor, resulting in one of the girls getting kicked out of the dorm. And she even typed out a FOUR PAGE LIST of rules for her roommates to abide by. Erika wanted out of the dorm, because the girls didnt like her, as per usual, and couldnt get out unless she lied about something extreme. She also filed restraining orders on these girls who couldnt care less about her and told her parents that they tried to assault her. Really i dont know anyone who has ever met Erika and actually liked her, nor do i know anyone who has ever been friends with her that is STILL friends with her. All im saying is that all of Chicagoland doesnt dislike this girl for no reason. Find anyone who knows her from Lincoln Way or Columbia even, since thats more recent for you, and ask them about her. I guarantee the number of people who say bad things, that are also true things will overwhelm you. Sadly, she can probably hold back her insanity for 3 months and the real Erika wont be exposed on TV. Be fooled and think she's Mary Sunshine and you'll just be another number in the long list of people she has TEMPORARILY fooled.
Wow, from what everyone's been saying this girl seems crazy. I hope it comes out on the show.

With the stories I've heard (and read in our threads), of the rigorous casting process, I can't imagine how all of this could have escaped the casting directors. I even remember someone saying they even do interviews with potential cast members' friends and family. I wonder if they do know, and if this is going to be part of her "storyline." Either way, I guess it will be interesting.
True OPD. Most things don't get past them, so I wonder if this will be covered on the episodes.
if you have read the previous posts, people have commented how Erika's parents lie to try and cover her ***. i dont imagine this would have been any different. and friends? ha what friends? she has none, and i imagine whoever was her "best friend" for the week at that time, before she REALLY knew her and peaced bc shes insane, would have probably said great things.
Heh my brother went to Columbia downtown. I wonder if he knows her. Anyways, this girl seems bat**** crazy. Can't wait!
I sure hope this hits episodes. Now I understand why when I am out with the cast Erika is all by her self. the whole night at Halo she was grabbing on to mike and callie. They were trying to have fun and she was so guarded. i have noticed that no one even likes to go out with her to the clubs anymore except mike because he has a heart of gold. Now I know the reason why she hates us "bloggers" she didnt want her little secret leaked....oooops :victory:

It's OUTSTANDING TV!
[QUOTE=wiggyndc;105696]BMP would be CRAZY themselves NOT to have this in the episodes. You know they'll somehow egg her on to get the insane to surface. It's OUTSTANDING TV![/QUOTE] It would be interesting to know if BMP did their research in this case. I assume they would have, but you never know.
Wouldn't BMP get the names of her friends and family from her? She could have easily just given them names of people who wouldn't tell BMP about the cancer story, and I doubt her family would at all.
It would be interesting if one of the castmembers actually had or is currently living with cancer. I think that would make great TV as well.
its not too far fetched to assume that out of 7 other people, one of them has had a family member fall victim to cancer. im sure if this comes out, some shocked or angry confessionals will follow. im hoping for a confrontation though. everyone i know in illinois that knows erika is having "Real World Viewing" parties every week, so we can laugh our ***** off at what lies Erika brews. :laugh2:
[QUOTE=Bacchus;105701]It would be interesting to know if BMP did their research in this case. I assume they would have, but you never know.[/QUOTE] Well since BMP folks read Vevmo religiously, follow twitter feeds and their IP addresses have been logged on Shabooty's website, I'm sure they're well aware of this now. Clearly Jim Johnston and his staff are aware at this point. They clearly must realize that this information is going to come out (no sooner than the show airs and these friends in Illinois go to the local media...if not already...) Better to let her be the potentially crazy musician and get people hooked on the storyline than try to ignore it and subsequently see it come out in the news and in tabloids (OK, well maybe not tabloids, since they're not truly celebrities). But what do I know about TV and media...? :dance3:
Can they read vevmo in the cast house? Erica is probably freaking out now.
[quote=ilovesuper;105736]Can they read vevmo in the cast house? Erica is probably freaking out now.[/quote] I'm told we are on the filter list... [QUOTE]Well since BMP folks read Vevmo religiously[/QUOTE] My logs show 29 absolute unique IPs from BMP in the last month, so they are paying attention. I was wondering more so if they had properly vetted her prior to casting as this is not something that would be easily found unless they properly interviewed people in her community. None of this would show up in court records, the local newspaper etc and if what is alleged is true, I doubt she would have volunteered it during the interview processes just based on what we have learned. Interestingly enough, this season they were supposed to be looking for cast members that were afflicted with a disease, or were handicapped...
[QUOTE=ilovesuper;105736]Can they read vevmo in the cast house? Erica is probably freaking out now.[/QUOTE] They probably can't. But their friends can (and are - 100% for sure on this one). So they're getting the scoop.

If anyone from Erika's town wants to directly notify a cast member of Erika's story by e-mail, send me a Private Message.
Why would anyone want to directly notify a cast member of the story?!
I don't know Dart. Perhaps they want to create drama?
[B]Multiple reports: Erika's mom just arrived at the house.[/B]
Her mom is there? Interesting.
