[QUOTE=Desertpuma;347230]I said the RW fight occurred on US soil. I said the CT vs Adam fight did not occur on US soil. As for the DA extraditing Nia to Portland? If he is trying to make a point about reality TV violence in his city and/or state, he just might.[/QUOTE] I know what you said. But my point is US soil covers a lot of ground, this is a big country, and given that Atlanta is 3000 miles away from Portland, trust me, they wont be traveling 3000 miles just to extradite her back to Portland on a misdemeanor domestic dispute. lol. that would be an insane waste of time and resources. The only thing they could possibly do is issue a warrant out for her arrest in Portland, which basically means that if she shows up in Portland again and is pulled over driving and her license is run in, the warrant will show up, or in some other legal trouble where police run her name through and see the warrant, them she may be arrested and prosecuted by the DA. But if she's pulled over or comes into contact with police in her hometown of Atlanta, and they run her name through and find the warrant in Portland, the Atlanta legal authorities won't be extraditing her across the country, lol. That I am sure of.
[QUOTE=TheFeedMachi;347231]Well, when she hit Johnny with the hair dryer, it becomes aggravated assault which is a felony.[/QUOTE] Even if its a felony, the DA in Atlanta would not take the time and resources to track her down, contact Portland authorities and extradite her all the way across the country unless she was wanted for something a lot more serious, like a kidnapping or murder or a drug trafficking ring, etc. and even then, police dont usually actively search for you, they just arrest you if they happen to come into contact with you and run your name through and see that theres a warrant out for your arrest. basically, the only thing Portland authorities can do is issue a warrant out for her arrest on assault charges and hope she shows up in Portland again and somehow comes in contact with the police while shes there, whether it be getting pulled over in her car, etc.
[QUOTE=Seminole;347259]I think Nia continuing to fight is another aspect of her immaturity. If you "won" against Averey in the hallway, don't take it into the bedroom and keep going. And she said in the aftershow that she got portrayed as the "angry black woman" because of this. No...YOU brought that among yourself. Lots of people won't punch someone for throwing an energy drink at them, which isn't a violent act. Oh no, now you'll grow wings.[/QUOTE] Heather B of RW1 fame said it best: "They work with what you gave them."

For nia i just am not sure she knows how she wants to come off.. On one hand on twiiter she is hurricane Nia the baddest chick ever no bull she will destroy you and she feeds into that image...But than she appears on like multiple shows/podcasts recapping the episode basically saying she never fights and its not her thing and basically playing victim... So which is it? I think she looks completely fake and i dont know why people would believe an admitted liar.. But i am curious which is real but i think most if not all if the tough girl stuff is an act A lot of people loved marie and latoya and i was in the minority not likibg the whole "bad bit$$" thing i dont think any of that is legit with those girls..fake tough girls who think tge louder you yell the more tough you are.. Kind if like nia claiming to be a master manipulator or master of verball arguing according to afterbuzz tv ep recap haha

I think Nia is sort of a camealeon, she feeds off the vibes of the people around her and becomes whatever she thinks they want her to be. So if she's around people who are encouraging the bad ***** type behavior, like they do on Twitter, she plays it up. But if she's being interviewed by people who are discouraging it and look down on it, she becomes the innocent victim who doesn't like to fight.

In a place where DA's are elected, although Rod Underhill ran unopposed last November, being seen to be soft on violent crime never gains one votes. He is known to have a high family values standard and need not actually pursue extradition to be applauded in the community. He can easily achieve public note by having the court issue an arrest warrant that will likely never be served within the statue of limitations. There is a bit of a back story here that mold13 laid out some of before the season taped. Local media had the story that RW was coming to town and even identified the location while city hall was denying it was true. The permit to film is what many are concerned with in the community -- and the nature of the last few episodes has done nothing to dampen those concerns, especially among those in the community -- including local government -- who feel lied to.
Dreamer, please be observant of the Terms of Service. Audreyhorne should not be ridiculed for her views. Disagree if you must, be humorous, be sarcastic, but please don't be rude to new members. Audreyhorne, welcome to vevmo. Most who are brutal in the comments usually mean well, with a few exceptions.

For Portland's take on things, here is what the Oregonian published: [url=http://www.oregonlive.com/movies/index.ssf/2013/06/the_real_world_portland_the_ra.html#incart_river]'The Real World: Portland': The rains came, and Nia erupts | OregonLive.com[/url]
The thing with Nia that bothers me is that RW/RR/The Challenges have always had the rule of You punch someone you go home. Nia punched Jordan a while back, so she should've been sent home then. While I agree that physical fighting is entertaining, it's just weird how the lines aren't always as black and white as they are for the Challenges. The announcement MTV made at the end of the episode also kinda was weird because if it's never the answer, why don't they do something about it? More entertaining than most episodes this season, but the lines are kind of blurry nonetheless.
[B]Johnny[/B]: Did he just shower with a... dog? Yelling at Ana was uncalled for. "That sucks, Nia! Now I'm gonna have to go pick up the **** you smeared. It's so unfair!" [B]Nia[/B]: I would've reacted just like her about stepping in ****. Especially in my ******* house. It's disgusting. You shouldn't have to touch anybody's feces but your own, or your babies'. LMAO at her calling Daisy "triflin" [B]Averey[/B]: "Other people would be like 'Well I stepped in it, might as well clean it up'" LOL no. what kind of logic of this? It's your dog, you take care of it. Better yet, don't bring it to a ******* RW house. The way she blew Ana off was just rude, some friend she is. [B]Marlon[/B]: The "bro's" and "yo's" in every sentence... "Let em fight!" was he thinking about ratings or would he really let his friends fight IRL... hm? [B]Ana[/B]: YES BIRD YES. Tell that bish! [B]Jordan[/B]: Am I the only one who thought he looked really hot during the fight? Love that cute little smirk he was giving Nia at the end of the episode... *swoons*
[QUOTE=CherryPie;347286] [B]Nia[/B]: LMAO at her calling Daisy "triflin" [/QUOTE] Best post ever. I love me some Nia.

[QUOTE=TheFeedMachi;347212]People keep trying to compare this fight to the CT fight, but the way production handled it was completely different. With CT, they tried to stop the fight but were unable to do so. As v1man mentioned earlier, members of production were hurt because of what CT was doing. Production's lack of involvement in this is what is absolutely appalling. After Nia assaulted Johnny and Jordan broke it up, production should have stepped in and sent her home right then. Instead they let it continue when they were perfectly capable of stopping it. As for why CT is a fan favorite and Nia is not, CT has shown remorse for his actions and had a redemption story arc on Rivals. People love a redemption story. It is why Ray Lewis was so popular.[/QUOTE] Nia just got on the show/franchise and shouldn't be compared to CT especially when he's been around for 10 years the 25th.
geez it seems like a lot of people are probably going to be expecting warnings from administrators.
[QUOTE=Nostalgic;347279]Yes because its a crime to be black and angry. Get real, please.[/QUOTE] haha, it's not a crime, but I'm sure she isn't angry in real life. I know noone would ever want to be called an angry person of any race, cause that would be horrid. Cause who actually wants to be known as an angry person? It's a TV show, so people will throw criticism like Nia is the "angry black girl" or Jess is a "whiny brat" or Johnny is a "whipped baby" etc. All celebrities, no matter which list they fall under, are usually good at shrugging out critical comments from the general public. Maybe except for Amanda Bynes.
I believe violence is acceptable in certain situations, aka as last resort. Nia pounding on Johnny and then using a blow-drier just because he poured a drink on her was unecessary. Provoked, yes, but the punishment didn't fit the crime, so to say . On the other hand, Averey stepping in and fighting Nia was necessary; somebody she loved was in danger and she defended him, since clearly no one else cared enough to intervene. BMP has been getting more and more lenient with fights (that goes for BGC as well). I remember when Trisha got sent for that incredibly weak push. Or when they wanted to sent Puck home for spitting in that guy's face. Now they're just letting people do whatever they want.So with that formula, things like Nia hitting men with metal objects and no one intervening was bound to happen. I'm not surprised, and that's not a good thing. It's entertaining, yes, and good for discussion, but there's a point when you gotta question the ethics behind it. And saying "dude it's just a TV show, it's for ratings" is kind of a copout

[QUOTE=dreamer;347290]I think you mean "For one writer in Portland's take on things" ******[/QUOTE] I write what I mean, but thanks for your assistance. More later about that reporter and the community tone.
[QUOTE=CherryPie;347294]And saying "dude it's just a TV show, it's for ratings" is kind of a copout[/QUOTE] Lol um not really. That's just what it is. We can all say our opinions and thoughts but at the end of the day that's ultimately what it comes down to and I doubt this situation is gonna stop them the next time.
Just an observation: So where the heck is that clip shown in the trailer where Averey shouting to Johnny: "You can't do that!?" . It looked like they were wearing the same clothing as they did in this episode. Unless that happens next week of course.
Some of you are dangerously close to violating the terms of service (and some of you have already crossed it and will be getting infractions)...watch it. No need to tell someone to "get real" or "get the facts straight" or "get off your high horse".
[QUOTE=Nostalgic;347289]It has nothing to do with upbringing you know. By the way you can step off your high horse now.[/QUOTE] Yeah, I agree. I don't think what Nia did was right. However... You can think she's a HORRIBLE human being because of it, whatever. But saying that those who don't think what she did was the worst thing on the planet haven't been properly raised is really insulting. [QUOTE=Nostalgic;347287]Best post ever. I love me some Nia.[/QUOTE] Thank you, thank you haha

[QUOTE=brunett;347265]they wont be traveling 3000 miles just to extradite her back to Portland on a misdemeanor domestic dispute[/QUOTE] When Nia was waiting outside the room waiting for Johnny with the blow dryer, she had a weapon and was planning on attacking him. This makes it an aggravated assault and makes extradition more likely.
