Southie bad boy Brandon Kane joins cast of The Real World
Growing up South Boston style is no joke, or at least it wasn’t for Brandon Kane, who is aiming to get his life on track after struggling with heart break, a cocaine addiction, and meaningless sex.
The cure? Reality TV, of course.
Kane, a Quincy resident, has joined the cast of The Real World: St. Thomas, which premieres on Wednesday, June 27 on MTV.
Kane’s story will revolve around the turmoil he’s faced in life, and how he hopes to stay clean, and move forward from a devastating break up.
Sporting tattoos and gauged ears, Kane said he had to steal and hustle to survive in Southie.
After a particularly heart-wrenching breakup with his first love, Kane had a year-long bender of promiscuous sex and coke-fueled partying.
But he’s been drug free for five months now, and he sees The Real World as his opportunity to get out of his town and have a shot at a normal life.
He will join six other cast members from around the country for a season of living the laid back Caribbean culture.
