In her post " Why I Said No To Being On MTV's Online Rival Show ," journalist Rafaella Gunz reveals even more backstory about the show's casting process. The producers apparently contacted her after she publicly wrote about being harassed online. When she expressed interest in the show, they contacted her trolls without her permission, and she says that contact started up the harassment all over again.
"Everyone was crying," neighbor Wayne Cameron told the TV station. "I was standing behind that tree over there. And that was it. I just couldn't take it anymore so I had to go back home."
This time, the bullet didn't stop in the book but instead pierced Ruiz in the chest. Medics tried to revive him, authorities said, but he was declared dead at the house.
"I said, don't do it, don't do it," Ruiz's aunt, Claudia Ruiz, told her nephew when he shared his idea, according to Valley News Live. "Why are you going to use a gun? Why?"
So on Monday evening, the couple positioned two cameras outside their home and prepared for their breakthrough stunt. They wanted fame, family said, and danger often brings it.
Mark Jafar, senior vice president of corporate communications at MTV, did tell Gunz that "Beyond the Keyboard" isn't currently slated for development by MTV. So this casting call could just be for the pilot Critical Content will use to pitch to the network.
"They were in love. They loved each other," Ruiz's aunt, Claudia Ruiz, told Valley News Live. "It was just a prank gone wrong. It shouldn't have happened like this. It shouldn't have happened at all."
Schulman, of MTV's Catfish fame, wed his fiancée Laura Perlongo Saturday in the backyard of his father's home in East Hampton, New York.
"I wish they wouldn't have done it," Claudia Ruiz told WDAY-TV. "I wish he would've just done another prank. He was so He had so much going for himself."
