‘Real World: Cancun’ Tackles Self-Mutilation

by | July 20, 2009 at 3:40 PM | TV News

Past seasons of ‘The Real World’ have touched upon heavy issues like drug and alcohol abuse, racism, domestic violence and AIDS. But on this Wednesday’s episode, one of the current housemates will have an issue that the series has never tackled before – self-mutilation.

22-year old Ayiiia Elizarraras – a model who won a spot at the house through MTV’s online voting competition – has a history of drug issues and self-mutilation.
These issues will rear themselves on this week’s episode, where she is caught cutting herself after a particularly difficult fight with a housemate.

Watch the fight between CJ, Joey and Ayiiia leading up to the event after the jump, and check out ‘The Real World: Cancun’ this Wednesday at 10pm ET/PT.
