Ryan and Jemmye appeared on the 24th season of Real World, set in New Orleans, alongside roommates McKenzie Coburn, Preston O’Neil Roberson-Charles, Ryan Leslie, Sahar Dika, Ashlee Feldman and Eric Patrick.
Ryan was 28 at the time of his death. According to TMZ, a friend revealed Ryan choked on his vomit after a night of partying. He was once addicted to painkillers and his substance abuse struggle, as well as his subsequent recovery, were featured on the MTV series.
