The Real World Shocker: Tonya Cooley Files Lawsuit Against Show, Claims She Was Sexually Assaulted

A former Real World is suing the show, claiming she was sexually assaulted on the series.

E! News is reporting that Tonya Cooley claims that when she was on The Real World: Ruins in 2009, contestants were given alcohol and male castmembers were encouraged to mistreat the girls.

According to court docs obtained by E!, Cooley says that male castmembers forcibly removed women’s bathing suits, inappropriately touched the girls and used derogatory language.

The story gets wilder. Allegedly, Cooley claims that after one drunken night where she passed out, a toothbrush was inserted by two castmembers (she claims it was Evan Starkman and Kenny Santucci) into her vagina causing lacerations.
