UPDATE: Sunny tells TMZ she plans to fight the charges because she only blew a .08 ... the legal limit, by the way. As for her failed field sobriety test -- Sunny says she was wearing Christian Louboutins and "nobody could walk a straight line in those shoes."

Sunny Cross
, who was on the very first episode of the MTV show "Catfish," was arrested this morning for suspicion of driving while intoxicated ... TMZ has learned.

Cross was popped at 8:20 AM in Fayetteville, AR. According to the website for the Washington County Sheriff's Office, Cross was popped for driving too close to another vehicle, driving on the wrong side of the road, and lastly ... DWI.

Cross posted $1,055 bond and was released at 9:39 AM. Oddly enough ... at 8:39 AM she tweeted, "Last night was hilarious."

We called Cross for comment and got her voicemail. A few minutes after we called, she tweeted, "Well I guess it's safe to say last night was an epic fail."

Cross appeared on the very first episode of "Catfish" -- where she was "introduced" to her Internet boyfriend, who turned out to be a girl named Chelsea.

What the hell is wrong with people. For years and years we've known about the dangers of drunk driving, all the thousands of deaths & injuries because of it yet there are still nitwits who put the rest of us in danger because they're so selfish & stupid by getting behind the wheel. Can't cars come equipped with breathalizers or something that won't start the engine if you blow over? Or can't we have much stronger reprimands for drunk drivers? Looking at her friggin glassy eyed drunken face makes me furious and the fact that she's smiling like it's a photo op makes me want to smack the crap outta her.

That is because 98% of people who agree to appear on a "reality" show aren't playing with a full deck. This is not surpsing.

TMZ, does this really warrant a big red box around the article? It really diminishes the effect that is supposed to have if you use it on crap like this.

I've never heard of the show, but she's a very good looking woman. She does need to learn that drinking, and driving is a horrible idea.

I had a friend who was just over the limit, but driving in the snow when he couldn't avoid hitting a person on foot in a curve. The person he hit died on the spot, and he spent many years in prison. Had he been sober, it would have been the fault of the weather as the judge put it.

I'm honestly not surprised anymore by people getting DWIs and DUIs. It's sad, really.
