Ray Thrown Out Naked for Cheating With Olympia Dukakis on 'Bored to Death' (VIDEO)

A little tip from this week's 'Bored to Death' (Mon., 9PM ET on HBO). If you're going to cheat on your significant other, try not to do it in the house you share with her. When Ray got caught cheating with an older woman -- Olympia Dukakis , no less -- he was thrown out of the house immediately. Unfortunately for Ray, and the people out in the streets, he was in the middle of a bubble bath which "immediately" came down, and so he found himself running around outside wearing nothing but a swim cap. Luckily, George is there to help a friend in need, so Ray won't end up homeless. It also keeps him closer so he can continue going on wacky adventures with George and Jonathan, which is really what we're tuning in for every week.
