Real World’s Johnny Bananas Sues ‘Entourage’ (Subtitle: Working is Hard)

The Superficial / August 3, 2011

Everything about this makes my brain shit blood. Apparently this clown Johnny Devenanzio, who proves my theory that Penn State main is a secret government douchebag academy, was nicknamed “Johnny Bananas” by his Real World castmates and feels that appearing in basically every single Real World/Road Rules challenge since 2006 instead of getting a job is legal grounds for him to sue Entourage over a storyline where Drama voices a cartoon monkey of the same name. TMZ reports:

Johnny was out at Beso in L.A. last night … and told us, “It’s not like I spilled hot coffee on my vagina and I’m trying to make a buck off of it … my identity has been stolen man.”
He adds, “I’ve been on television for the last 5 years, acting like a jerk-off, creating this name, making it a household name, and I’ll be damned if some half-ass gorilla is gonna come by and steal my thunder.”

It gets even better, Johnny also claims his lawyer sent HBO a cease and desist because, wait for it, he owns the rights to the name “Johnny Bananas” and that HBO is attempting “to capitalize on the name recognition which I’m solely responsible for creating.” So, he’s the famous 1940s gangster? It all makes sense now. Or at least does after this quote:

A spokesperson for HBO tells TMZ the folks at “Entourage” have not received “any correspondence regarding this matter.”

But the reality star just said he sent the letter. How can this be? Next you’re going to tell me Kim Kardashian is a liar leaving me no choice but to slap you in the face with my glove and demand satisfaction. TV chose these people to dictate reality. How dare you?
