'Real World' Poll: Was Cory’s Reaction To Lauren’s Pregnancy Understandable?


When a bunch of exes are suddenly thrust together in one house and forced to share a bathroom for weeks, petty fights are inevitable, but nothing could have prepared Lauren and Cory for the argument they were forced into on tonight's "Real World: Ex-Plosion." Lauren came clean to Cory -- with whom she'd recently reconciled -- about finding out she was pregnant with another man's child, and though she and Cory were broken up at the time of conception, he lashed out at Lauren and hung her out to dry in her time of need, claiming she was simply paying the price for her actions.

As Jenny pointed out, both Lauren and Cory had slept with other people while they were broken up, but Cory maintained that his pain was irreparable, and that Lauren betrayed his trust. Arielle surmised that Cory's cold shoulder was more rooted in the pain that came from the fact that his fantasy future with Lauren was no longer possible. Either way, he finally came around by the time Lauren decided to leave the house, and assured her he'd support her as a friend. But was it too little too late?

+ Tell us what you think -- how would you have reacted if put in Cory's shoes?
