The security manager appeared and ordered him to pack up his stuff and leave. Though Adam's been a terrible boyfriend (if we can even call him that) toward Nany, his leaving upset her the most.
They hugged, and she started to cry. Adam said, "I'm sorry. I feel bad. I'm sorry I have to leave you."
Adding alcohol to the mix just makes it worse. Adam is a violent drunk, too, which is another warning flag that a relationship may not be a great idea.
At least he was limited to punching walls this week, but the way he went after them was still very dangerous and a little frightening. Especially if you're between him and the wall, as Nany was at one point.
Over the phone, she confesses sleeping with one of her house mates. He guesses correctly that it was Adam. She tells him, "I just need to like do this experience on my own. It's nothing against you."
"You're the one telling me, 'When [I] get back you better have a ring for me. We're gonna move in together. I love you so much,'" replies Jordy. "But you know what that is? That's all bulls---."
She chose MTV.
I am 45-years-old. I have not watched MTV regularly since Nirvana smelled Teen Spirit and Michael Jackson told us it didn't matter if things were black or white. I haven't "wanted my MTV" in a while. There was a time -- say, from 1981, when MTV debuted, to around 1992 -- when I watched the channel a lot. They actually played more music videos than reality shows then and the ratio of good to bad music was much more in my favor. I wore my sunglasses at night, I was caught in the heat of the moment, and I wanted Jessie's girl.
... And then, of course, there's the first fight on the latest installment of 'The Real World' (Wed., 10PM ET on MTV). Stick a group of bored/drunken twenty-somethings together in a house, and a fight is bound to happen. The only question is, who will the fight involve? Will it be guy-on-guy, girl-on-girl, or the far rarer cross-gender fight?
According to The Hollywood Reporter, MTV is currently casting season 26 and gave a green light to seasons 27 and 28. Season 25, set in Las Vegas, is currently airing on MTV.
Although in many minds 'Jersey Shore' has taken 'Real World''s place in the pop culture landscape, the latest 'Real World' has brought in around 2 million viewers. They're not 'Jersey Shore'-level numbers, but still OK for an MTV series.
Christina Applegate Lands NBC Role, USA Announces 'White Collar,' 'Covert Affairs' Premiere Dates and More TV News
The 'Samantha Who?' star fielded many pilot offers, including ABC's 'Good Christian Bitches,' before taking the role of a working mom in NBC's untitled comedy.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Applegate will star as a working mom who has a stay-at-home husband and pretty opinionated parents. The project comes from 'Parks and Recreation' writer Emily Spivey.

Sinclair took over showrunner duties after the end of the critically panned first season, and has largely been credited for instilling a renewed energy into the rebooted series. No word on her replacement yet. [TV Line]
• Two 'Real World: Back to New Orleans' cast members are wanted by police after failing to show up for their Wednesday court date in Florida. Jemmye Carroll and Ryan Knight were arrested for disorderly conduct on Saturday. According to the police report, Carroll blamed a black eye on a security guard but a witness saw her repeatedly punching herself in the face. [RadarOnline]
Now, 'The Real World' is virtually indistinguishable from the typical trashy reality TV that VH1 and MTV have become known for. In other words, this 25th season might as well be the next season of 'Jersey Shore,' for the way these people are behaving.
Downstairs at the bar, Adam decides to make sure he has way too many drinks so that everyone can see what a terrible drunk he is. He got himself escorted out of the club and back up to the gang's hotel room, which horrified his roommate. That's just the kind of reputation they need in Vegas.
'The Real World' Turns 25 With the Boys Trying to Bring Nearly That Many Women Into the Hot Tub (VIDEO)
Sure, the pretense was that there was a hot tub to enjoy, so getting the girls down to their underwear was even easier than usual. But nobody's naive enough to think it stopped there. But not everybody in the house was impressed with the quality of young ladies parading through the pad.
"Obviously the boys wanted to bring home girls, which is fine," Heather said. "But, is it gross? Yeah."
Michael didn't get involved, instead watching from a distance in what looked like a mix of awe and horror. "Grandma would not like that," he said.
'The Real World' has chosen to mark its 25th season in the sinningest of cities -- Las Vegas.
Nearly a decade after the first go-round in Sin City, though, the latest 'Real World' installment doesn't really seem all that scandalous.
Sure, the cast is young, tan, beautiful, reality-TV savvy and, most of all, drunk. But in a post-'Jersey Shore' world, is that enough anymore?
"Oh my God," groans a 20-something guy at the end of the first trailer for MTV's newest season of 'The Real World,' which returns to Las Vegas after an eight-year absence. That's essentially how we feel after watching the two-minute clip.
Considering that the first Vegas season marked the show's turn from "interesting glimpse at diverse roommates interacting with each other" to "hot, angry, young people drinking, having sex and fighting," we're a little torn at the prospect of watching yet another batch of PYTs get into trouble.
Included in PEOPLE's first look trailer are drinking, making out, gambling, punching, scromiting (screaming + vomiting) -- really everything you've come to expect from an MTV reality show. That doesn't mean we won't tune in when season 25 (!!!!!) premieres in March.
So, for anyone who decried the fact that one day the "slackers" on 'The Real World' will one day run the country, take notice: one of them just got elected to help do just that.
Sean Duffy, a cast member of 'The Real World: Boston' in 1997, was elected to Congress last night by residents in Wisconsin's 7th district. The Republican district attorney of Ashland County won quite handily over opponent Julie Lassa, for a seat that was held by Democrat Dave Obey since 1969 (two years before Duffy was born).
And while this event may indicate to people my age (I'm about five months older than Duffy) and older that we're going to hell in a handbasket, what I thought when I heard about Duffy's victory was: why didn't this happen sooner?
Ryan dug out a few pairs of house mate Eric's filthy undies. (We don't know why.) He discovered ... more than skid marks. It pains us to write more detail. As Eric explained, "When I run, I spray fart. I can't help it -- God made me this way."
Jemmye Carroll summed it up by saying: "I don't know what's creepier -- the fact that Eric [beep] himself, or the fact that our roommates enjoyed watching it and pulling out his dirty underwear."
News Roundup: Oprah Picks Jonathan Franzen for Her Book Club, J.J. Abrams' Second New Pilot Gets Picked Up and More
The talk show host has reportedly chosen Franzen's newest novel, 'Freedom,' for her book club, although the announcement will not officially be made until later today, according to the AP.
This is the second time Franzen has been selected -- Oprah picked Franzen's 'The Corrections' in 2001, but the author denounced Oprah's previous book club choices by calling them "schmaltzy," which prompted her to cancel his appearance on 'The Oprah Winfrey Show.' It seems nine years was enough time for both sides to work things out.

• 'Glee' creator Ryan Murphy has teamed up with '24' showrunner Howard Gordon for a drama about phobias. Gordon previously worked on 'The X-Files,' so the pedigree sounds promising. Though Fox hasn't officially picked up the pilot yet, it will likely end up at the network. [Deadline]
Sahar was busy lamenting that soon she would be gone from the house on Dufossat Street -- along with all the other housemates. So Knight made an effort to raise everyone's spirits. (Or maybe he was just being crazy; it's always hard to tell with Knight.)
