Michelle Money, a 30-year-old hair stylist and actress from Salt Lake City, Utah, seems to be going out of her way to be the villain on this season of The Bachelor, a theory that is backed up by recent rumors that she told friends she was paid by ABC to act that way. (Much like Justin “Rated R” Rego from the last season of The Bachelorette.)
Michelle’s villainous ways extend well beyond her actions on screen though, as stories about her past begin to percolate up on the internet, including an affair with NBA player Carlos Boozer. (A story which Michelle has since confirmed with Life & Style, although she claims she was separated from her husband Ryan Money at the time and claims Boozer led her to believe he was separated from his wife CeCe at the time as well.)
I was doing some research on Michelle’s background to see what other skeletons I might uncover when I ran across the photo above, which is the only picture I have seen with Michelle Money together with her ex-husband Ryan Money as well as their daughter Brielle. The photo was taken at the ERE Expo in San Diego in 2007.
Here’s a little bit of background info on Ryan from his now-defunct blog RyanMoney.com:
My first real job was as a bagger at Reams Grocery Store. Before that job I had spent many hours working at my Grandpa’s business (Peak Dist.). I graduated with a business education from Westminster College. While going to school I started a painting business, worked for HP and became a Founding Partner of www.JuntoPartners.com. I am the managing partner of a www.LoveSac.com franchise in Park City, UT. Now I am working with www.HireVue.com, easily one of the most exciting technologies to come out of Web 2.0.
