The Real World's Paula Meronek (Paula Walnuts)

Meet Paula. In case you don't know who Paula is, I'll tell you. Paula was the blonde anorexic girl from MTV's The Real World : Key West.

On June 13, 2006, we received an email from Paula. The deal was that we'd send her some free shirts, and in exchange she'd wear the shirts in public, but more importantly, she agreed to send some pictures of her wearing the shirts so that we could put them up on the website. Did she ever send the pictures? Of course not. Here's the whole story:

June 15, the shirts were in the mail.

A month later, this happened:

"A cast member on MTV's "The Real World" was arraigned on a misdemeanor assault charge after police said she bit her boyfriend during a domestic dispute.

Paula Ann Meronek, 25, allegedly bit her boyfriend several times when he refused to let her into their home early Sunday morning, police said."

Ok, the girl was arrested...I figured I cut her some slack. I mean, she's anorexic and she bit her boyfriend...that had to be hard for her right? Sure it's been a month, but obviously the girl's going thru some trouble. I'm a nice guy right?

On July 25, 2006, I wrote the following to Paula after not hearing back from her since sending the shirts:

I understand you've been going thru a lot lately, but I'd appreciate it if you could please at least confirm if you've received the shirts. I'm not pushing you to send pics right away, but I would at least appreciate a response."

Surprisingly, she wrote back right away.

"oh i am so sorry, yeah i have received the shirts and i appreciate your understanding and no worries, it's not as bad as the media is makin it all out to be....but just want you to know, i will be sendin pics as soon as i am able..and once again, thanks so much for them, they are freakin awesome...hope all is well with you, take care"

Great! so, she received the shirts and she'll be sending pics soon. Perfect.

A month later, still no pics, so I wrote to her again asking about the pics. I figured a month was enough time right? Right?

September 1, 2006, wrote another email asking for a follow-up. No response.

On 9/15/06, I wrote the following:

"I really don't think it's fair that I have to keep emailing you asking for those pictures and you don't even have the decency to respond. We had an agreement that in exchange for shirts you would send pictures. I kept up my part of the agreement, but you have yet to keep up your part. Please email me back asap. "

Amazingly enough, I get a response....the same day!

"You are correct and I absolutely apologize...I have been dealing with many issues within my personal life which has put my travelling on hold, in turn leading to lack of chances to wear your shirts out and about...you have been great with holding up your part of the agreement and I am embarrassed that i have not held up mine yet. I understand your frustrations and would like to get you the pictures as soon as possible...but if you would rather have me return the shirts back to you, i completely understand...I have yet to wear them, otherwise you would have the pics already...if you can wait a tad long i will send them over as soon as possible..but if not, i will mail back the shirts to you...again my apoligies, life got a little hectic for me recently...let me know how you wish me to proceed. thanks and again i am sorry for my lacking of professional behavior."

Again, I have hope. Could it be? Could I really finally be getting the pics?

I wrote back telling her I don't want the shirts back...all I want are the pictures I was promised. Ahh, all is well with the world.

But of course, no pics, no emails, no nothing.

On 1/26/07 (2007!!!!!!) I wrote one last time just saying how disappointed I was that she never sent the pics. But, I gave her an opportunity right? I think I was more than nice enough to her...sent her some free shirts, gave her over 6 months to send pics.

Obviously Paula won't respond to me, but maybe she'll respond to others.

Here's her myspace: http://www.myspace.com/paulawalnuts - feel free to leave rude comments and nasty emails.

I'm thinking about providing her personal email address as well, but I'm not sure if that's illegal for any reason. If it's definitely not, I'll be sure to edit this post.

Also, please help spread she word. I figure either it'll push her to send the pictures, or just make her look like shit. At this point, I'm not sure I care which one happens.

you don't want trash like that wearing your shirts anyhow. tell her to do you a favor any NOT wear it. unless its in a mugshot, then thats ok.

No one cares about that girl, just do what you do guys, the shirts are fantastic, and shes just a girl out to use her 15 minutes of fame to get free awesome swag. If you really wanted to drive the point home, make a design that has a picture of a can of cambells soup or andy warhol and put under it "I used my 15 minutes of fame and all I got was this lousy t-shirt." and send THAT to her!

That's so shady. I agree with Brett send her some "has been" design and let her deal with that.

I messaged her and told her to ship your stuff back. She's full of crap; if it took SIX MONTHS then she never planned on sending anything. Like you wouldn't tell the world what a skank she's being.
