In an interview with our sister site, StyleBlazer, Mica Hughes spoke about her days as a model and her time on the show, Blood Sweat and Heels. Since the show premiered in January, it hasn’t really painted her in the best light. She drinks a lot, she acts a fool out in public quite often, and she doesn’t have the best set of “friends” on her side (as we talked about yesterday). But the new reality star said that she did have a good time doing the show, she just never realized how ugly some of the girls talked about her behind her back. She went in depth about that, as well as drinking to deal with what was a stressful time for her as she dealt with her dad dying. Here are some tidbits that stood out from the interview:
Her Drinking And The Flack She Gets For It (Especially From Geneva)
“I’m not working on my drinking; I don’t have a problem with drinking. Geneva, you know, she chose to label and judge for whatever reason to be mean. I was going through a really vulnerable time in my life during filming and it was very stressful. It was over a very long period of filming, so of course the camera is going to catch something. Did I get tipsy here and there? Yeah I did but you know, I’m human, I’m not perfect. Am I a drunk and alcoholic if that’s the definition? Then, I guess. But I’m going to tell you I’m not. I think it was inflated and it’s reality TV so things get inflated easily and the world can believe what is repeated over and over on camera and with someone’s words.”
“My favorite is really red wine but its hard to find a good red wine by the glass, but I love Montrachet. I love white wine, I love Chardonnays and I do like Santa Margherita Pinot Grigio. Some other reds I like are Caymus and Opus One.”
What Has Shocked Her When It Comes To Her Castmembers’ Behavior
“I’m learning a lot through watching the show, I’m seeing it with everybody else. It’s a little surprising sometimes how the girls go in on me. I didn’t know that was happening so much. So watching and hearing the comments and just the constant comments, it’s like their whole thing is just talking about Mica. It went a little overboard and its surprising of course because you don’t know what’s coming up. I’m always on the edge of my seat with my teeth clenched like ‘Oh My God, what’s next.’ It’s not easy to watch but it is entertaining, most of it.”
From the outside looking in, it does seem like she might have a problem. But as Mica said, she was dealing with a really tough time, and we all deal with grief differently. But what do you think?
