PUCK FROM 'REAL WORLD' Begins Prison Sentence for Stalking

"Real World" legend David "Puck" Rainey is officially locked up in a California state prison ... TMZ has learned -- after he was convicted of stalking a woman earlier this year.

The details surrounding the stalking incident are unclear, but according to court docs, 44-year-old Rainey -- who starred in "Real World: San Francisco" in 1994 -- committed the crime on February 22nd.

The docs don't state explicitly that Rainey had violated a restraining order in the process -- but he was sentenced to more than one year in prison for the crime, which suggests he violated a court order.

Rainey pled "no contest" to the stalking charge in April and was sentenced to two years in prison in September. He turned himself in to Wasco State Prison on November 8th.

Rainey was given 401 days credit for time served, so he's got roughly 300 days to go.

Once a troublemaker, always a troublemaker.

I liked everything before Las Vegas. That's where it just became nothing but party party party bar hopping party party party.

Yeah, it sucks. I liked them actually dealing with issues (health AND social) and not just hookups and parties.

I love that in the first season, you can tell that none of them knew what to expect. They were really just taking part in this social experiment. These days, people show up knowing exactly what to expect: drinking, fighting, and fucking.

It's really changed the type of people who apply to be on the show. Obviously they still wanted attractive people who fulfilled certain roles even on the first season, but they were still real people without agendas (or at most, they thought hey, maybe I can plug my band while I'm on this show). Now you can tell people are going in with their character and hoping they can parlay a few months of being drunk on tv into a career of getting paid to show up at bars, speak to college kids, and win crap as lifetime members on The Challenge. It's so formulaic and fake that I can't watch it anymore. Las Vegas was the straw that broke the camel's back for me but I started actively disliking the show during Hawaii.

very true & everyone became crazy "attractive"

"Attractive" is right. Although it was usually more generic attractiveness. Like, diversity was really on its way out and it was easy to guess who'd they cast for the next season, etc.

lmao that is literally exactly what i meant

that's why i liked brooklyn - they got back to "real" looking people, had their first trans cast member, etc. i only watched a few episodes though. then the next one was like lol back to partying

Eh I always thought they picked people on the good looking side.

Survivor is one that bothered me. For the first two seasons, it was your everyday everbodys. Now it's like the Real World in some "deserted" place about 2 miles from a Pizza Hut

I only watched from the seasons from Hawaii - Austin, and even though partying became popular during those seasons the previews I see now or occasional episodes I watch are even more partying. Honestly the real world is more like jersey shore now, just different cities.

Srsly. These days, they push the alcohol into the hands of the alcoholics.
