Tonya Cooley Alleges Toothbrush Rape By Real World Co-Stars, Sues MTV

by at . Comments

Tonya Cooley, a cast member on MTV's Real World/Road Rules Challenge: The Ruins, is suing the network after claiming she was raped on set ... with a toothbrush.

Cooley filed the suit against MTV, Bunim/Murray Productions, Kenneth Santucci, Evan Starkman and others. According to her lawsuit, the two male co-stars:

"Took another male participant's toothbrush and rubbed the toothbrush around plaintiff's genitals, including her labia, and inserting the toothbrush into plaintiff's vagina."

Cooley says it happened while she was passed out and cameras were rolling.

Tonya Cooley also says producers not only knew about the rape, they even replaced the toothbrush, never telling her what happened while she was out cold.

The suit also claims that female cast members were stripped of their bathing suits and that male cast members were encouraged by producers to "inappropriately touch female cast members' bodies, including in intimate areas."

Cooley alleges she and other cast members reported incidents of sexual abuse, but show honchos turned a blind eye ... and she was later kicked off the show.

According to Cooley, she was later booted from the show after slapping a cast member. She says nothing happened to the men who allegedly raped her.

Cooley is suing for unspecified damages. Calls to MTV have not been returned.

Obviously, if that's even remotely true, it's reprehensible and merits action.

In less scandalous and tawdry MTV News, Beavis and Butt-Head are back.

Sorry about not proofreading, lol

Cameras were suppose to have been rolling when this was going on, where is the proof? I seriously doubt that they kept any evidence that would incrimdate themselves, how are they going to proof something like that happened? I don't know what to think about this one.


if she was "passed out" how does she know this occured? did the boys brag? did she see the footage? why do producers give these scanks and dirt bags air time this is not entertaining on any level.

Avatar's an incredibly ignorant comment to say that if someone is drunk and passes out they are partly responsible for anything that happens to them. Rape is NOT about sex, or opportunity, it is about humiliation, degradation, & power. ANY woman has the right to do what she pleases, just like any man does, without having to worry someone is going to use her body as if it were a blow up doll. Whether she has no problem dating a convicted child rapist, while terrible in my book, also does not mean she should be raped. All of that being said, we need to hear from both sides, and find out how much is true. It could ruin 2 young men's lives also, if accused just out of spite. We shouldn't judge either because it could be ANY of us, on either side of that.


Any "evidence"? Bet that toothbrush was never seen again!


Why was she passed out? Boozing??? You drink that much, you take the risk she did. Does that absolve anyone who may have taken advantage while she was passed out? No, but it puts some of the responsibility in her court as well. I'm thinking she better have eye witnesses that will speak or a copy of the video. I'm also thinking the guy whose toothbrush was used might have a case if this is true too because of diseases he might catch from her.


i really hope this is not a made up stunt to get attention. Rape/sexual assault in any form is not something that needs to be taken lightly. If things happened like she says they did then the guys and shows producers need to be punished.


She has no problem dating a convicted child rapist though.....
