Paula Meronek has a big reason to celebrate this week.
The Real World: Key West star took to Instagram on Nov. 4 to mark a major milestone in her personal health: The former MTV reality star is seven years sober.
"2556 days," she shared with her followers before posting a message that read, "Keep calm because 7 years sober is sexy as hell."
Paula immediately received well wishes from friends and her extended MTV family, including Derrick Kosinski, Camila Nakagawa and Johanna Botta. "So proud of you my friend," Johanna shared in the comments section. "I always knew you were amazing but now I'm in true awe."
After stepping away from the spotlight, Paula married Jack Beckert in 2014 and now has three children.
When one fan asked the MTV star what made her get sober, she pointed to her family. "Atlas," she wrote in reference to her eldest son, who is featured on her Instagram page.
Paula's milestone has us wondering where our other favorite Real World stars are up to long after they stopped being polite and started getting real.
