Report: 'Real World Las Vegas' nightclub boss Marc Portugal fired after castmember's sexual harassment allegations aired

By Reality TV World staff, 10/16/2002 

Marc Portugal, a Palms employee who supervised the cast of MTV's The Real World: Las Vegas at the nightclub that they worked in during their stay at the Las Vegas casino resort, was dismissed after the reality show aired allegations of sexual harassment by Portugal, The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported Sunday.

"We have zero tolerance for such behavior," Michael Morton told the Review-Journal.  Morton is a co-owner of the company that owns N9NE steakhouse, the nightclub Rain and the pool lounge Skin at the Palms.

During The Real World: Las Vegas' fifth episode broadcast on October 8, one of the show's female roommates reportedly complained that Portugal was "a molester" to her castmates.  A night-vision bedroom camera also showed a female castmember complaining when Portugal crawled into her bed, according to the Review-Journal. 

Portugal had been tasked with supervising The Real World: Las Vegas' seven castmembers while they worked at the Rain nightclub and also often partied with them in their suite at the Palms, according to the Review-Journal. 

"Obviously, we were unaware of the things that were going on," Morton told the Review-Journal.
