Ashley Mitchell Is Back on 'Real World: Ex-Plosion': 5 Fascinating Facts About the Girl Who Left
The Real World: Ex-Plosion began like every other season of The Real World: a group of roommates, most of which have personalities stronger than any you've ever encountered in real life, move into a house in a new city and immediately begin fighting and having sex with each other sometimes simultaneously. But this year, things were different! A few episodes into the season, MTV brought in the exes of these crazy kids making the show even wilder than it was before.
One roommate didn't make it to this point because she brought so much drama she quite literally got herself voted out of the house. For the uninitiated, The Real World does not include cast members being voted off, but Ashley was different and after she disappeared for a couple of days, her roommates voted on whether she should stay or leave. She left during the third episode when some of them were like, "Uh... Yeah you kinda drink too much and ruin things so maybe you should go."
So why, when the show is about to air it's tenth episode, are we talking about the roommate who left oh so long ago? Because Ashley is coming back (!!!) and we want to take a closer look at the woman who thought it was a good idea to rejoin this crazy mess.
