Tonya Cooley

Tonya Cooley (born January 7, 1980; Visalia, California) was a cast member on MTV's reality television series, The Real World: Chicago, the 11th season of The Real World, which aired in 2002. She has since been a regular on the spin-off series, Real World/Road Rules Challenge, participating in eight challenges as of 2009. She also posed for Playboy as a Cyber Girl of the Week and appeared in an episode of the Cinemax adult series The Erotic Traveler. Tonya Cooley hails from Walla Walla, Washington. At the time she began filming The Real World: Chicago, she claims to have never interacted with African-Americans and gay people, and had rarely been apart from her boyfriend, Justin. She did not socialize as much as her housemates, who often alienated her because they felt that she could be judgmental and overly dramatic at times. She was hospitalized three times during the season because of kidney stones, and even left to go home for about a week.
