[QUOTE=molds13;347314]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] But it is sometime the truth. i hardly see that as insulting. Whatever happened to thick skin? We're all adults here and should be treated as such. I didn't mean for it to come across as such.
[QUOTE=wutzrenzi;347307]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.[/QUOTE] It's actually, "I can't do that". I love how Nia slapped Averey upside her hair. Very classic.
[QUOTE=Seminole;347293]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.[/QUOTE] To be honest, Amanda should take Averey's place because Amanda really deserves that knock upside the head.

Most of you don't recall when I was a moderator here during vevmo's early years, so I'll offer some advice I gave to many then, including new moderators. -- Discussion of actions by moderators can not be allowed. This is standard across most major sites. Why? Because the membership can not be in a position to question the decisions of moderators. It's disruptive and undermines their authority. It's like umpires calling balls and strikes. You can complain about them, but you are likely headed to the showers if you complain in public. Send a mod an email if you have a problem. Chances are you will receive an intelligent response with an explanation. In the end, you may not agree with a decision but by PM dialogue you may come to understand the decision. Moderators at vevmo are volunteers. Imagine being a volunteer who has to take crap from people who hide behind anonymous screen names. It's a wonder everyone isn't given a time out now and then. In mod circles elsewhere, comments about moderating are often called "litter." I'll do my best not to cause the creation of litter, and maybe we can all be a little more ecco-friendly to each other. molds13, thanks for your "service." :)
Yeah I have nothing against Molds or you V1 I just think that what happened was not justified. You're right it should be kept to pm. I apologize in advanced if this cause any problems.

"i'm strong enough as a christian woman to give a christian man what he needs in a christian wife" We get it, girl. You're religious. I've also noticed that Jessica answers almost any conversation or questions like she is in a miss america pageant.

It sounds like she was trying to dodge the things Bird said. Jessica needs a reality check if she thinks marriage is a Disney fairy tail. She's the sort of girl who'll get married, give up the V, then discover a few months later that she's living in this thibg called reality.

I still love me some Jessica though. i can't help it even if I'm "thirsty and junk".
Nia is a coward...attacking a man who you know won't fight back, and then to try and attack him with a weapon is even more pathetic. Johnny has had a pretty wild temper throughout the season but you have to take your hat off to him to not only ignore his natural instincts of fighting back, but to pull Aevery back multiple times. (Nia is a much bigger girl than Aevery too)
So next week we are for sure going to get a preview for Rivals II right? I have Real World recorded & wait 20 minutes after it's already on air to start from the beginning so I can skip through commercials and this time I slowly skipped through the commercials so I can catch a commercial for The Challenge but they didn't do one :(

I'm surprised at how very little club scenes we watched this season!? Anyone else notice?
Violence issue aside, did anyone actually think it was Nia's responsibility to clean up the dog poo? Sure, it would've been courteous, but that's Avery's dog, so Avery should be responsible for any and all messes caused by the dog.

If Nia just spotted dog crap around the house I don't think she's responsible for cleaning it up...even if she feeds the dog and walks it here and there. BUT, if I'm in my house and I step on ****, and I smush it into the carpet I would've just cleaned it up because it's the right thing to do.
Re: The show [I]degrading[/I] itself by having the producers 'let' them fight... I don't recall many Real World physical altercations, but I don't seem to remember any producers stepping in to stop Dustin from flipping Mike out of his chair and mushing him in the face in Las Vegas 2. Now that I think of it, the female cast members had to break it up because the producers were nowhere to be found. Or...during the NOLA season when the producers didn't step in to stop Preston from cleaning the house toilet with Ryan's toothbrush. OR...the fights that went on during the Hollywood season. I once again don't remember any producers stepping in for anything. Which just leaves me to believe there's a lot of selective memory/re-writing of history going on in this thread. Although I'm convinced V1man is in fact Mike from Las Vegas 2. 'He needs to go to jail!'.

I would've cleaned it up the first time, but if it ever happened again I would not continue to clean up after the first time.
[QUOTE=fais54;347430] Although I'm convinced V1man is in fact Mike from Las Vegas 2. [/QUOTE] LOL! He's more than young enough to be my grandson! ~~ [QUOTE=salt&vinegar;347422]Violence issue aside, did anyone actually think it was Nia's responsibility to clean up the dog poo? Sure, it would've been courteous, but that's Avery's dog, so Avery should be responsible for any and all messes caused by the dog.[/QUOTE] This really is the question of a social contract of the type that most young adult roommates make every day in new living situations. There is no right or wrong solutions or answer beyond what the roommates have agreed among themselves -- such as "If you are going to steal my OJ, please don't drink it out of the carton." While I have no evidence for this, production likely avoided having the cast discuss any agreement involving Daisy so that, since most animals not sufficiently housebroken or allowed outside regularly will ******** or urinate inside, it's a guaranteed production "moment," and one that has potential for greater drama (as happened). It's been seen on more than one reality show in the past 15 years including during RW LA season 2 (anyone remember Monkity?
[QUOTE=salt&vinegar;347435]I agree with you. I would've cleaned it up the first time, but if it ever happened again I would not continue to clean up after the first time.[/QUOTE] Yeah...they were talking about it on Grantland and said pretty much the same thing. I don't like Nia but I don't think she was necessarily wrong about the ****. Averey chose to bring Daisy, and there wasn't like an agreement or anything that said that the other people in the house had to take care of her. If Jordan or Marlon or whoever takes her for a walk, that's just them being nice...it doesn't mean they have the responsibility to do that all the time. However, I do think that Johnny wasn't yelling at her just because she didn't clean up ****...it's that she didn't clean up **** that she mushed into the carpet. If you notice, when Nia spilled all the stuff on the floor and made it look like Daisy did it, Johnny didn't start yelling at the people that were in the house at the time...he cleaned it up because he thought the dog made a mess. It was because Nia had made the mess messier than it was that he wanted her to clean it.

It wasn't like Ryan got sick or a situation that was out of control per se. Plus Ryan started the **** when he cut up Preston's debit cards...
[QUOTE=Nostalgic;347497]Why should they? It wasn't like Ryan got sick or a situation that was out of control per se. Plus Ryan started the **** when he cut up Preston's debit cards...[/QUOTE] If I remember correctly, Ryan got really sick from that. I could be dead *** wrong though.
[QUOTE=molds13;346875]Personally...I think any woman who wants to fight like a man should be prepared to get hit like one. Men do (should) not hit ladies. However - Nia is no lady.[/QUOTE] AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA -AA-men!!! If not hit then how about a PUSH ...defensively of course, but hard enough to send her and her weave right through a brick wall fortified with steel girters and a little aluminum siding...::sweet smile::
[QUOTE=Desertpuma;347227]Actually, from what V1Man said, the Portland City Council is looking into it because city and state laws for domestic abuse may have been broken. Permits were issued for filming which required production to be compliant with those laws. By permitting such things to occur, they may have broken those laws and invalidated the permits which could also result in a civil lawsuit which would affect BMP and VIACOM (who owns MTV). If that occurs, the producers of this particular season will most likely lose more than just their jobs.[/QUOTE] ...um would [I][B]ANY[/B][/I]thing happen to tropical **** Nia?
[QUOTE=dreamer;347404]I'm surprised at how very little club scenes we watched this season!? Anyone else notice?[/QUOTE] Alex said on Spreecast that in recent seasons they try to make them go to bars instead of clubs because it's easier to film.
I don't get it. First they say Daisy is mine, don't touch her. Then they say Daisy is everybody's dog. I'm confused.
