The truth about Erika
The truth about Erika
Little Miss Erika Lauren Wasilewski seems to have an interesting past in her hometown of Chicago.
My run-ins with her have not been great, and I can say she is the only roommate I can say I have any issue with. Turns out, I’m not alone.
Erika’s nickname at home is “Cancer.” Why? Well, thanks to my sidekick Martin, we have some “official” statements from two of her hometown “friends.”
Apparently about 3 years ago, she broke up with her boyfriend. In order to get him back, she decided to pretend to have Skin Cancer 8 hours after the break-up. She went along with the story for 9 months before finally admitting she was lying. She even had her family in on it.

Here is what some of her ex-friends have to say about the situation that she can‘t escape, even after she went to school at Illinois State University:
“When they broke up she was devastated and I guess for attention or who knows what she started to tell people that she was just diagnosed with skin cancer. She was telling me all about her chemotherapy and showing me her stomach where she takes some kind of shot every morning..? She had my best friend crying and defending her so much that it ruined a lot of friendships. Some of her stories just didn't seem to add up and a girl I know that actually did have cancer called her out on it one time. She finally couldn't take it anymore and decided to tell people the truth. There is a conversation somewhere that we're trying to find where she says how sorry she is and that she needs mental help. The crazy thing is that when my friend would go to her house even her parents were in on it. She got so deep into her lie that she made her parents lie as well. My friend was like Hey can I just see a doctors note or something so we can put this all to rest? And Erika said if you see a doctors not then we will never be friends again, and my friend said I don't care I want to see the doctors note. And then Erika never showed her and never talked to her again.
God she is a NUTCASE. Of course they picked her to be on the real world.. look how much publicity she is getting already. By the way I HOPE you listened to her music and think it is hilarious like everyone back home does. We are going to have real world parties when it airs.”
“She faked cancer for 9 months… just wouldnt give it up. When she first told me she started bawling her eyes out immediately and really sold it to me. She deserved an Oscar for her acting performance that night. This went on for so long, and her cancer "kept moving" from different parts of her body and people were really feeling bad for her. She even told us that she was losing her hair because of chemo and treatments. There were people who didn’t believe her at first, and I was one of the ones who everyone hated for "making fun of the girl who has cancer" but things just didn’t add up. People kept asking her questions, and she was avoiding answering them and it just came to a boiling point where she finally admitted she never had cancer. She absolutely dropped off the map socially, and everyone hated her so bad. They still do, you won’t have any trouble getting this story from 50 more people. I was the one who finally got her to admit that she didn’t have cancer through an AIM convo. I’m sure America will see her true colors.”

They say cops were called on them numerous times for harassing her and constantly asking for doctors’ notes etc. She was constantly threatening friendships, but no one seemed to care.
She also faked having the West Nile Virus before this, and claimed her grandfather died but said her boyfriend could not come to the funeral because he was not Italian. (Even though she is Polish.)
Ya know, some people are just mean or ignorant or not fun to be around. Some people do bad things here and there. This girl took it above and beyond all of that. No wonder she’s always so worried about us bloggers and news sources being around.
Too late now… The story is out!
