'Real World' Star Puck and Son Injured In Serious Car Accident

PuckLong before there was a Puck on 'Glee' there was another Puck on TV, the one on MTV's reality show 'The Real World.' David "Puck" Rainey was the roommate during the show's fantastic (back when the show could actually be called "fantastic") third season in San Francisco, the one that argued with his roommates, made gay jokes, stuck fingers in the peanut butter and eventually got kicked out. We haven't heard much about him in the past several years, but he's in the news again today.

TMZ is reporting that he was in a serious car accident with his eight year-old son. Both were seriously injured.

The son was released but Rainey remains in the hospital, having a hard time speaking due to injuries. Rainey says he swerved to avoid a deer, but the police have charged him with drunk driving.

I'm usually not one to post about the personal lives/relationships of TV stars, who they're dating, that sort of thing. But I thought this was interesting because in the very first episode of that season of 'The Real World,' Rainey is shown going to a counselor after being arrested for drunk driving. That was over 16 years ago. Sigh.

Puck was a classless slob that never cared about how his actions might affect other people. Apparently, he still doesn't.

I know we should be chastising a drunk driver but I just want to say the first 5 seasons of The Real World were great, and I would even argue that Hawai'i, Boston, Seattle, and New Orleans weren't too bad either.

Puck, always the great antagonist.

I agree with your assessment. Actually I'd say that it wasn't really the "Real World" once they stopped having their own jobs. It used to be about normal-ish people doing normal things like actually working; that was more "real" than finding 7 freaks who could be an exaggerated caricature of something, that didn't work so they could just hang out and drink. I don't mind the premise - I mind that they call it "The Real World" as if there's anything real about it anymore.
