R.I.P Real World & KC's Frankie Abernathy: Too Punk Rock for this planet

Frankie Abernathy unfortunately lost her battle with cystic fibrosis.

But that doesn't mean we can't remember the good times she gave us as she thankfully walked away from MTV's The Real World before it became nothing but a corporate exercise in product placement and stereotypes . . . If it ever was anything else.

Anyway, as an entertainer Abernathy was brilliant considering that I never bought the caricature of her that MTV broadcast to millions . . . As far as recently deceased white broads go, this one was probably my favorite because she seemingly made fun of the fact that most women from Kansas City are somewhat crazy, probably into cutting and will definitely cheat on you . . . And for that she rocks/ed.

For an AWESOME RECAP of the Real World Season that brought Frankie to fame, check out Bol's site.

Wow. I'm shocked...but not really. CF is a bitch.

Franks was a good kid.

Damn, her old boyfriend and I used to be roommates and he was pretty smitten with her. I hope he is okay. I only met her once; she didn't even say hi back.
