Gets Taste of the 'Real World'

7/11/2006 1:59 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

paula_3_0711_250-1CROMWELL, Conn. (AP) -- A cast member on MTV's "The Real World" was arraigned on a misdemeanor assault charge after police said she bit her boyfriend during a domestic dispute.

Paula Ann Meronek, 25, allegedly bit her boyfriend several times when he refused to let her into their home early Sunday morning, police said. "I think it was an argument that led to one thing then another," said Cromwell Police Chief Anthony Salvatore. "He attempted to keep her from the house. It got physical and we were contacted." Meronek, who was arraigned Monday, was charged with third-degree assault, which carries a potential penalty of a year in prison. She is due back in court Aug. 11. No lawyer was listed in court documents.

Her boyfriend, John Alyward, was charged with disorderly conduct. The arrest was first reported by The Middletown Press. "The Real World," now in its 17th season, puts seven strangers together in an exotic locale -- this time in a Key West, Fla., beach house.

A call to the show's producer was not immediately returned.

WOW! I'd like to know what happened to Keith too. With their history I knew they wouldn't last for years, but I didn't expect them to be kaput so soon.

It's sad, she really needs psychological help.

Okay so the last episode of the Real World I watched Miss Paula said she and Keith were amazing and they wanted to have babies. Now she's with a new guy and she's still going crazy. Maybe that's why Keith hit her...she tried to bit him. To me she always seemed so innocent, I guess Tyler was right she's just crazy.

Anytime a couple has police called on them, it's NEVER a good relationship. AND IT'S ALWAYS THE MAN PROVOKING THE WOMAN. And for some reason, women get the bad end of it. That's why I am really, really careful when it comes guys. I stay away from the troublemakers. It's the guys who are psycho in these relationships, not the women. Even with family members. If you get into fights alot with your father or mother or someone like that too often where it gets out of hand, it's always best to stay away from that family member, once you are able to. Even if you rely on these people financially, cut yourself off from them emotionally and limit contact with them. There's only so much energy in this life.

Don't allow people with black auras to ruin your life. And i think John Alyward, no matter how good he may be at times, is someone who might just be evil in other ways, like MANY guys his age. Stay away from guys like that. They're classless. They deserve only weak unintelligent sluts in their life.

I think Paula Meronek needs to stop allowing herself to get angry and emotional. Women are often called "psychos" because of their emotional sides. Women are expected to be "submissive" and that's it. But if a guy gets angry he has a "right" to be. It's a double standard. And I feel sorry for weak women who allow themselves to be controlled by men like this.

Paula, leave emotions, especially ANGER out of your life. Stop getting angry and people will stop calling you a "psycho," like they do on the show. Men have nothing better to say except use the word "psycho" against women who are strong-willed, smart and determined. That's because men are too stupid to think of anything smart to criticize a woman on.

Don't allow anyone to provoke you. And revenge or retaliation or vindictiveness in any way is NEVER going to be a winner. It'll only make you a loser. LEAVE ANGER OUT OF YOUR LIFE and you will see things change. I guarantee it. There will ALWAYS be obstacles in life. Like many guys, women have to learn to take it with a grain of salt and handle situations differently without allowing men to make you angry. Remember, it's always the stupid women that allow others to provoke them. They always end up as f***-ups in life.
