'Real World: Portland': Tensions Rise in the House (Exclusive Video)

It wouldn't be The Real World without another ridiculous disagreement.

The Hollywood Reporter exclusively debuts a scene from Wednesday's episode of the Portland edition, the 28th season of the long-running reality show, with the housemates divided. Though things seem to be headed in the right direction between Nia, Johnny and Averey, when Nia starts to talk to Averey's dog Daisy — it rubs one side of the house the wrong way.

In the clip, Averey confronts Nia after she hears her fellow housemate make "kissy" noises at her dog, something she's not too fond of.

"Please don't do that to my dog!" Averey tells Nia. "You know what that entitles." Then the verbal spewing begins.

"What does that entitle?" Nia counters.

Marlon seems to have the most reasonable outlook on the entire situation. "No one's willing to be the bigger person," he says in his confessional. "If one side would just admit that they were wrong, then that opens up the other side. You can legitimately squash these issues — and people won't fight over a turd."

But are his fellow housemates willing to be "the bigger person"? From the looks of things, doesn't seem like it.

Real World: Portland airs at 10 p.m. Wednesdays on MTV.
