Last week on 'The Real World Homecoming,' Eric was desperate to do anything he could to get the Covid virus out of his body and get over to the loft. It was so hard for him to see his former roomies making new memories without him. But, the memories they were about to make were not the best. Becky seemed a tad off her rocker when she shared John Lennon had come to visit her in college and would come again during her time in 1992. This made everyone, but Shaman Eric, scratch their heads. Eventually, a clip from their time on the show came up when talking about racial equality. It was assumed it would be the one of Julie and Kevin but it was Becky and Kevin. He felt she had a lot of white privilege.
As they revisit the situation now, just as prevalent, it seemed Becky just was not listening. Her white privilege showed even more as they show her talking about her lifestyle and all of her travels. She lives the life of the upper-class. Should she have to apologize for this? No. But should she maybe concede she has no idea what Kevin's life as an African-American male is and will always be like? Maybe. Even Norm comes in and tries to get Becky to stop talking and hear Kevin. Julie, who was only nineteen when the series started, works with underprivileged youths in her town. She has become an activist in her own right and feels we should meet each other in the middle. Kevin is so pleased with the woman she has become and disgusted by Becky.
As for Eric, he is happy that he is healing in his hotel but everyone is trying to understand how Becky can be so small-minded. In the end, they see her wheeling her luggage as she has decided to leave. Will she return or is she off to her next adventure? Find out as 'The Real World Homecoming' airs weekly on Paramount Plus.
