Knight graciously offers to help Jemmye lose her "white-boy virginity." Sahara and Eric share a kiss. And the roommates become increasingly skeptical of Ryan after a night out sends him to the hospital.
When Sahara's boyfriend comes to visit, the roommates find out that he's been cheating on her back home. And his drunk and obnoxious behavior frazzles Sahara just as she's about to perform her biggest gig yet.
I've been watching the Real World on and off since the original (NY 1992)... wow, 22 years! I've really grown up with this show. RW New Orleans II is in my top 7. Much like the Brooklyn season, these cast members actually look and act like "real" people which is refreshing as opposed to other seasons full of aspiring actor/singer/model types.
There was the usual sex and drinking but not in a trashy and excessive way like a lot of the other seasons. They did a fair amount of volunteering and the viewer got a nice view of the city and it's people. Again this was a welcome change from other seasons that hardly even feature the filming location. Oh and the house was gorgeous, the exterior and also the decorating.
Now some cons... Eric and Ashlee were hardly featured on the show, Eric at least seemed like a cool person. Ryan Leslie was super annoying but to make him the "villain" of the show was silly, too easy maybe? There were parts of the season that were a bit boring but I much prefer that then a bunch of made up drama. All in all, well worth the $14.99 to purchase the season on Instant Video.
