Michael Calls Dustin a Chronic Liar on 'Real World: Las Vegas Reunion' (VIDEO)

'The Real World: Las Vegas Reunion'As long as Dustin Zito is allowing people to ask him questions in front of a camera, his past work on an online gay streaming video site is going to keep coming up, and it looks like he loves being the center of attention. He was front and center yet again at 'The Real World: Las Vegas Reunion' (Wed., 10PM ET on MTV).

When asked point blank about photos depicting him having sex with men, he suggested they might be Photoshopped. But when several cast members admitted to having seen the photos, Dustin backed down a little bit, admitting that he'd held other men's parts, so to speak.

"I think that you're a chronic liar," Michael said. "I think that you can't tell the truth." He further went on to say that he hopes to never see Dustin again.

"Okay then," Dustin agreed. "Keep your comments to yourself."

But Dustin, sharing opinions is kind of what these reunion shows are about. Besides, if he's spouting off about you that puts you at the center of attention again. We know how much you like that!

maybe MTV execs look for young people without self esteem in order to ensure they'll always have an applicant pool for their off-shoots? Has any Real World castmate, beside that Miz wrestler and the one who became a congressman ever been heard from again outside another MTV show?

It's a shame Mr. Zito was taken advantage of as a barely legal young man; however, the roommate's inability to live and let live is somewhat shameful, too, if you ask me.

I always watch MTV's the Real World; haven't missed a season since the first. To me - half my adult life now! - it will always represent one of, if not the very, pioneering genuine and unscripted reality show efforts. One of the things that keeps bringing me back is how every season, castmates think they're the first to get a broken heart, to suffer the consequences of overindulgence, to be unfriendable, blah, blah, blah. That said, this particular season's cast was the first that made me wonder whether the producers and casting directors intentionally ignored some pretty big red flags regarding these peoples' backgrounds and potential to polarize the audience. Collectively, these people scraped the bottom of the proverbial barrel, and the show almost jumped the so-called shark.

I love Las Vegas. No matter where you're from, Las Vegas is the exact opposite. Unfortunately, it is also a place where some think anything goes, no matter how base their behavior or off-putting, and all's forgiven. You were extensively recorded, people! No one except MTV will likely ever hire you. Every single member of this season's cast made me wonder whether they were specifically chosen to ensure offending even the most casual viewer! Not one had a redeeming quality or came through the experience a better person. Usually there's at least one, but not this go round. Did the powers that be purposely stack the deck so no one would be entertained?

Here's hoping next season that some relatively sane young people audition and are chosen for the opportunity to have the classic "stop being polite & start being real" classic Real World experience instead of a group of ungrateful, premeditated, self-centered addicts with either criminal records or known psychological problems. MTV, please stop stacking the deck!

I wouldn't call a salary and room and board in a luxurious house in a resort area being "taken advantage of." Especially when you lack skills and qualifications and don't want to work hard in order to support a much more modest lifestyle. I can understand his feeling conflicted, but very little he did went beyond the level of fraternity hijinks. Basically, he's embarrassed about what other people might think and keeps spinning like a politician.
