Interview with Erica Rose - 8/23/2012
Even though I can’t stand her voice, I had a really good time talking to Erica today.
She mostly talked about her frenemy Michael BUT she also gave some other fun details about the rest of the season and what the next step in her life is. Read on to find out more.
Erica felt so betrayed by Michael because even before the show she was texting with him and he kept saying how he would have her back all season. They were really friends. They went to concerts and did a lot of things that friends do. She never thought that she would lose friends after this season; she only thought that she would gain them. Erica said that she doesn’t regret anything that she said to Michael at the end of Monday’s episode. She doesn’t want them to hate each other but she isn’t sure she would want to be friends with someone that would turn their back against her so quickly.
She knew that Michael was lying to her as soon as she left the voting room with Chris. She could tell by his reaction. Erica said that she would have felt so stupid if she actually believed Michael and took Chris home with her. Michael played the game just like last season and she didn’t want him to make it any further or win this season by dishonesty.
She was closest to Sarah in the house and to this day they are still close friends. She was also very close to Nick. She said that she fully trusted him and that he always stuck to his word. Erica still doesn’t consider Kalon a friend (remember she knew him before) and out of everyone in the house, she was most surprised that she got close to Jamie (going into the season she thought that she was weird, I mean who didn’t haha) but she thinks Jamie is a really sweet, good person.
Erica was surprised at first by Blakeley and Tony’s relationship but now thinks that they are a really good match. And even though, she doesn’t see Kalon as a friend (and wishes he stopped commenting on her appearance), she thinks that Kalon and Lindzi have a genuine relationship as well. She hinted that we will see how Michael and Rachel’s relationship unfolds later on in the season (I wonder what that means)?
Erica just graduated law school and is going to be working at a law firm in Houston. She is ready to pass her bar and move on with her life (eventually she would even like to have her own court show). She also mentioned that her father just did plastic surgery on Trista (I thought that was really interesting)! P.S. On a side note, I just saw a picture of Trista and she totally didn’t even need surgery!
Erica said she would not go on another season of Bachelor Pad but would love to be a judge of a competition (I think she would make a very entertaining judge)!
