Guessing game: No longer required. On tonight’s “Real World: St. Thomas,” Brandon admitted–after first trying to cover his tracks–that he’d done cocaine the night before a random production-conducted drug test. After ultimately deciding to come clean about having “bumped it” in a crowded bar’s bathroom, he got sent home, and while he says he hasn’t completely curbed his drinking or drug use since his one-way trip back to Boston, he does regret disappointing those who had faith in his sobriety.
“Most of the show I spent not drinking,” Brandon says in the “Real World After Show” below. He adds that he had things under control until a new friend, Kyndra, pressured him into diving head-first into a bottle of whiskey, and when the floodgates re-opened, he fell back into his old habits. “It really hit me that I’m doing a TV show, and people are watching,” Brandon says about the moment it sunk in that he was a goner. “And I’m gonna let down a lot of people.”
Now, Brandon says he’s not ready to jump back into Alcoholics Anonymous or any similar recovery program, but adds he’s not drinking or using drugs to excess, anymore, either. Take a look at the videos below, and tell us if you think Brandon’s choice to take things “one day at a time” will ultimately work in his favor, or if he needs to recommit to ditching drugs and alcohol cold turkey.
