It’s unlikely that Cory and Brian will ever be best friends (oh, how we miss those earlier episodes), but will these two manage to make it to the end of the season without getting into another fist fight?

The drama-fueled finale of Real World: Ex-Plosion airs tonight, and Wetpaint Entertainment has an exclusive sneak peek from the emotionally charged episode. Cory wants to teach Brian a lesson for his drunken shenanigans — and it involves a fist to the face. But Brian decides he wants to talk things out with Cory, leading to a very heated conversation in the clip below. Will Cory lose his cool and punch Brian?


Wetpaint Entertainment caught up with Cory after filming, and he filled us in on what really happened with Brian. “To be honest, I zoned out the last two weeks of filming,” Cory told us. “I had enough drama. I was ready to go back home, go back to reality. I was done with the Real World house at this point.”

This, of course, lead Cory to take out his frustrations on Brian. “I reached my breaking point. I had enough of everybody else’s drama — I didn’t have any drama. I was just having a good time, but all of the couples were fighting every day. I couldn’t take it anymore, so I exploded. It wasn’t even that big of a deal, but [Brian] set me off. I had so much built-up anger.”

As for where these two stand today? Cory tells us there’s no hard feelings between them. In fact, the only Real World: Ex-Plosion castmate Cory would prefer to stay away from is Jenny — his former fling and Brian’s ex. “I didn’t get along with Jenny for half the time we were in the house.”
