Michelle’s most recent acting project is in the film Midway to Heaven – you can read more about that, including photos of Michelle and a trailer, HERE.
UPDATE – Since the announcement was made that Michelle Money would be appearing on the show there have been a number of unpleasant stories circulating about her and her break-up with ex-husband Ryan Money. One rumor was that she had an affair with NBA player Carlos Boozer of the Utah Jazz while both of them were still married. Michelle has since fessed up to the affair, telling Life & Style, “Yes, I was in a relationship with Carlos while he was still married. What I did was wrong.” According to Michelle the affair occurred after she had split from her husband and Carlos led her to believe he was separated from his wife CeCe at the time.
*** There is also a rumor that Michelle recently told people she was with at an NBA game that she was paid by ABC to act the way she did on the show, which is believable given her over-the-top villainous persona.
Michelle talked with ABC 4 about her experience on the show and people’s inevitable negative reactions:
