Episode Summary

EDIT
Irene Calls it Quits
AIRED:
Despite Irene's sickness, the show must go on, but at a production meeting for Dead Air, Irene's exhaustion forces her to leave. The other girls do their best to fully understand her condition, but they're confused by some of Irene's comments. Rebecca feels slighted that Irene would claim that no one was there for her. Basically, the girls feel Irene's put up a defensive wall, when all they want to do is help. Irene comments, "Being sick is a real quick way to find out who's going to be your friend, and who's not." Irene wants to use the phone to call her family, but Stephen's on the line, and the two exchange nasty words. Later, he confronts her and calls her a bitch. Irene blames her medication. Stephen and Nate discuss Irene's condition, and they're not sure how her disease is affecting her brain. Meanwhile, Irene breaks down crying to Rebecca. The following day, Irene attempts to sort it out with Stephen, but the conversation doesn't go as planned when he lashes out at her. Irene tries to make him understand that she's still dealing with her relapse, but he refuses to show compassion. The rest of the gang discusses Irene's behavior over dinner, while Irene tells a friend on the phone how much she hates the house. She finally informs her roommates that she's leaving the show. Shock and disbelief ripple through the house. Irene gathers her belongings and says her final goodbyes, then calls Stephen outside for one last chat. She calls him a homosexual, and Stephen calls her a bitch. He then races back into the house and grabs the stuffed dog Irene sleeps with--which he had hidden from her. He runs outside and throws it into the water, then runs up to the car, opens the passenger door, and slaps Irene in the face.moreless

    I hate all reality shows. Not only that but they are not reality. I believe that people who watch these types of shows are really dumbing down society. And even worse are the people that are behinde making these types of shows. I just wish that one day these people will sit back and reilize that they are making america dumber. And america, stop watching this garbage. I Love Tv, but I refuse to watch something that is so unoriginal that they can't even muster up a script. Now my last attact is that these are NOT Reality Shows. These are NON SCRIPTED SHOWS. or GAME SHOWS. Get it right.
