Frank Confronts Nate About His Homophobia on 'The Real World': VIDEO


On last night's Real World: San Diego Frank had a dish-smashing, chair-throwing confrontation with Nate about his homophobia.

TV Squad writes :"After threatening to walk off of the show, Frank ultimately apologized to the entire house for his reckless behavior, and Nate said he would go to a gay bar to prove he was comfortable with the situation now. Besties again?"

I haven't watched any of this season, but it feels like someone has a crush on someone —  this sure looks like a lover's quarrel to me.

  5. Wow, would you be yammering about violence and intimidation and silencing and hate if those roles had been reversed. No doubt bullying, too.

  6. Some one needs medication...

  7. I suffered through the first episode - and I've got to say Frank needs psychological help. He claims to be bisexual and proceeded to crazy-stalk one of his female roommates. The boy can't handle his liquor either.

    We should by no means be propping up this clown as some sort of warrior for LGBT rights. Regardless of whether Nate is a homophobe (or whatever) - Frank's violent tantrum should not be tolerated.

  8. It's a mantrum! But more sweet than serious.

  9. Looks contrived to me. Bad actors trying to remember their lines.

  12. I would totally do Frank. I love my men hairy and emotionally unstable. Well maybe just hairy.

  13. I have not watched the clip but this looks like a still from a porno.

  14. Fake.

  15. Maybe you should watch the episode before making random, incorrect statements. It's definitely not a lover's quarrel.

    Frank is a good example of what being conflicted about one's sexuality does to a person's mental health. He sees any hint of disapproval as complete rejection, he drinks way too much, and overreacts like a crazy person. It's actually quite interesting (and saddening) to watch. You know that if he just believed that his sexuality was okay and trusted that other people will come around eventually (and that he can't force them to do so by berating them), he'll be fine.

    Overall the season's not been too bad (better than the last few), I wouldn't be so quick to dismiss it. Yeah, most of the rest of the cast (except for a really cool lesbian) are quite blah.

  16. @ Craig - LOL, good one!! Nearly choked on my lunch!

  17. I'd totally bang Frank.

    Posted by: Myke | Oct 13, 2011 12:57:44 PM

  18. Frank clearly has some "mental problems". From a hitting one of his female roommates to this outlash, he clearly needs help.

  19. He has hair on his feet. yuck

    Posted by: asfasf | Oct 13, 2011 1:12:58 PM

  20. and he had to strip off his clothes to make his argument because why.....? was he planning on raping the other guy to change his mind?

  21. I've seen bits and pieces of the show this season. Almost all of the cast members are totally f'd up, to put it bluntly. They showed Nate drinking a lot (which the other castmates called him out on) and crying about something during the promos, directly after the clip between Frank and he fighting, so I wonder if they set it up where Nate ends up struggling with his sexuality as well.

    The show has long passed it's expiration date as a relevant show, but it's still OK on occasion for laughs. That's about it.

  22. That was freakin' hilarious! This Frank dude should be on Real Housewives of New Jersey; he'd give Teresa Giudice a run for her money. Totally contrived. I used to watch the early seasons of this show in the 90s. It's run its course and should be shut down, since it has no relevance these days.

  23. Hal is right. Frank cannot handle rejection. He has trust issues based on a previous relationship and as he told his housemates in a previous episode his father called him a faggot and kicked him out of the house a week before filming the series. To say he is a bit vulnerable and raw would be an understatement.

  24. When did MTV tolerate another "cast" member hitting or pushing another one? Wasn't that immediate grounds for being evicted? This has got to be somewhat contrived in order for Frank to still be on the show.

  25. Bro? Dude? Besties? BARF.
