The second Michelle Money was named a contestant on The Bachelor Season 15, people came out of the woodwork with less-than-savory whispers about her past.
In our Wetpaint story “10 Things You Didn’t Know About Bachelor Crazy Lady Michelle Money,” we included a couple of the affair rumors out there — and those rumors dovetail with a Life & Style story in this week’s “Bachelor Dirty Secrets” issue.
Michelle admitted to Life & Style that she had an affair with married NBA star Carlos Boozer. "Yes, I was in a relationship with Carlos while he was still married,” Michelle told the mag. “What I did was wrong."
According to the story, when Michelle first met Carlos, she was a recent divorcee living in Salt Lake City, and he was a star forward on the Utah Jazz. Carlos didn’t file for divorce until March 2009, after he and Michelle began seeing one another, but she implied to Life & Style that he led her to believe they were separated.
"I should never have been so naive to assume what I was told was true," Michelle said. "I'm not trying to shy away from the fact that he was still married. I don't put that on Carlos. I don't put that on anyone but myself. I feel terrible for Cece for that pain she's had to go through and that I am a part of it."
Sounds like she should put plenty on Carlos, since he was the one cheating on his spouse. Michelle and Carlos split officially in June 2009.
"All I can do," Michelle says, "is try to do better with my life. I screwed up. But I can only try to do the best I can."
