Apparently, the MTV alumni club is a bit mafia-esque — when something bad happens to one member, everybody takes it personally. The gang — Duffy, his wife Rachael Campos Duffy (“Real World San Francisco” and “Road Rules: All Stars”), David “Puck” Rainey (her bad-boy castmate), Norman Korpi (“Real World New York”), Derrick Kosinski (“Road Rules”) and Laurel Stucky “The Challenge”) — were on the Hill to honor Diem Brown, the MTV-show veteran who died of ovarian cancer last year.
At an event announcing the new caucus alongside ovarian cancer survivor Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-Conn.), Duffy said Brown’s death “touched our MTV reality-TV family.”
“She didn’t choose to hide, she chose to share … her fight,” he said.
And even though Rainey is considered one of reality TVs biggest villians (he clashed with his housemates and had a stormy, it’s-complicated friendship with Campos), he was back in the fold Tuesday, posing for pictures and cheering during the program.
