I Love Money Reunion: What You Didn’t See

|

Because there’s only so much time in any given broadcast, tons of reality gold never ends up making it to air. Because we were on set during the taping of the I Love Money reunion, we got to see everything that went down and can let you in on some of the finer moments that you didn’t get to see. From a whole segment devoted to Rodeo full of tears, name-calling, barbecue sauce and awesomeness to extremely off-color jokes from Mr. Boston to bottle-throwing from Heather, we’ve got the scoop. In the words of Heather: everyone’s getting exposed, motherf***ers!

- Rodeo’s segment was epic, maybe my favorite reunion segment I’ve ever witnessed (and I’ve been to every reunion taping since Flavor of Love 2, with the exception of I Love New York 2, regrettably since that was the best one of all time). It is a crying/hyena-howling shame that we didn’t get to see any of it (although there is an amazing segment in the video extras). Rodeo acknowledged her weight gain before breaking into tears. When Craig asked her why she said, “I came here to win this f***ing thing.” From then on, the emotions and curses flew. “The only person up there I think is a fake is goddamn Megan.” Rodeo called out Megan’s tendency to manipulate men with her sexuality, leading to this amazing back-and-forth with Brandi C.:

Brandi (from the audience): You took your top off for attention!
Rodeo: I did not.
Brandi: I was there!
Rodeo: F*** you.

Rodeo went on to describe her visit to the Walter Reed Army Medical Center, of course, and during this, she caught Megan snickering. “Megan, you can smile all you want, you bitch!” she yelled. The melodrama was so high, it was like watching a live soap opera. And I haven’t even mentioned my favorite thing that she said, which pertained not to her cast mates but to her product and where she sees it going: “Beef wraps dippin’ in my barbecue sauce.” Yeah. You’re sorry you missed it, right?

- The little back-and-forth between Brandi C., and Mr. Boston that made it to air was just a taste of the true nastiness unleashed during his segment. “I’d rather have my decency than start doing porno, ya f***ing whore,” he yelled to her. Even more hostile were his comments directed at 12 Pack regarding his supposed affair with Megan (as alluded to during Heather’s segment): “If he’s banging Megan, I don’t want to come down with AIDS.” Yeah, that’s right, Mr. Boston made a gay/AIDS joke, as if he’d be lucky enough to catch a social disease. I think airborne illness avoids Mr. Boston for fear of being annoyed. Anyway, the whole thing wasn’t a tenth as endearing as Boston clearly thought it was.

- The Entertainer’s segment went much as you saw, and in fact, in this case editing really did enhance the experience. The only notable thing that you didn’t see happened when Destiney was called up to the stage and they discussed their relationship for an appropriately brief amount of time. Apparently, things fell apart when the Entertainer commented on Destiney’s showing during the episode of Rock of Love 2, in which everyone watched a Poison concert. Apparently, Frank called her and said she looked like an idiot (which…uh…yeah), but the day he decided to tell her this also happened to be the day of her father’s funeral. They hadn’t spoken since. He claimed he called her an idiot in the most good-natured way possible, she conceded that she was particularly sensitive that day, and that was that. No kissing and making up — a few words ended it all. Apparently, their love wasn’t built on the strongest of foundations. You’re shocked, right?

- Megan’s segment was infinitely more chaotic than what you saw and anything else that happened that day, for that matter. Apparently, Brandi was supposed to be called up to the stage and everything, but the segment was cut short mostly thanks to Pumkin’s out-of-control display. Speaking of Brandi, early on in Megan’s segment during some heckling from the cast, Brandi spoke up and defended Megan. Heather shot back with, “She talks s*** about you, too!” Brandi protested, “We’re a team!” She became so frustrated over Megan’s treatment (and possibly from her inability to join what was happening on stage) that she got up out of her seat and sat on the edge of the platform that the cast was sitting on (I think there was a stray shot of this at some point during what made it to air). Brandi spent the rest of the show sharing her seat with Megan and Lily, like one big crowded family.

- It was sort of hard to parse out, so here’s some insight into Heather’s rage: she decided to believe a rumor that was being passed around that 12 Pack and Megan had recently slept together. Since she had more recently slept with 12 Pack (between the bleeps you can hear her say, “I f***ed you two days ago!” during her on-stage rant), she apparently feared for her health, reasoning that he must have caught something from Megan. This vexed her so much that she not only freaked out and “exposed” him on stage, but during the post-Megan-segment chaos, she threw a plastic bottle at him when back in her seat. For a second, it all seemed like it was going to devolve into more Rock of Love 2-esque shenanigans, but I guess it didn’t hurt him or he didn’t care (12 Pack, unlike so many people on these shows, is unflappable). After a brief cool-down, Heather was her less-ragey self. Everyone’s craniums sighed in relief.

- The Chance and Real segment was much longer, thanks to the brothers’ general toomfoolery. At one point, Chance referred to Craig as “Craigory.” Additionally, in reference to his scarf, Chance informed Craig, “This is my whip. I just had to turn it into fabric form.” Butch! And of course, totally silly. But it was a knowing sort of silliness. Earlier, someone from the audience yelled to Chance, “Chance, smile baby.” He shot back, “Why? You trying to expose my gap?” Chance’s sense of humor about himself is boundless. Seriously.

- Megan’s belief that she was I Love Money‘s star was only reinforced by the studio audience: you can’t tell on TV since the applause has been more or less normalized, but she got the biggest cheers during the introductions. Then, when Craig informally polled the crowd on its favorite, Megan’s name was the overwhelming response. Once again, Megan proves herself to be the winningest loser of this game.

Heather is awesome but i think _*@)*$!**!@(&~)_ happened at Charm School and thats why she hates her MORE. Real and Chance i cant even understand….they are funny though. Bostons weird but funny. and Hoopz was cool. But i am very hurt by the fact they never gave Nibblz a chance to speak, i love her, she is acctually very funny and down to earth ! VH1 DIDNT DO HER WELL !

  2. KILLINUHOES says:

    Pumkin is so PATHETIC, omg. LOL. Where was her guts when Bootz and Buckeey punked her on Charm School? I never saw her raise a fist to New York or Bootz when she was doing the earlier shows. Its pathetic, someone needs to teach her a lesson and sock her good. Megan WAS the show, the best thing ever

  3. lovelyroxxy says:

    i loved this show lol. it was funny, and crazy. i wished they had showed the rodeo segment. i thought it sucked when everyone was hating on megan, and brandi c. i thought they both made the show, mostly megan. like she said other ppl had different advantages, she had the smarts and happened to think outside the box to get as far as she did. plus i loved it how she quit, and didnt let others vote her off. lol that was classic

  4. D says:

    What happened to Destiney????? Where was she ? I hope all is ok . I so hoped to see her on the reunion part of the show :( I think she is an amazing person and I so understand what she went thru losing her father . I lost my father in “02″ from the same thing her father went thru

  5. princess says:

    I am really sad that the Entertainer/Destiney bit wasn’t shown..

  6. stasi says:

    PUMPKIN needs to shut up already
    she couldnt stand up to SHAY LARISSA and NEW YORK
    its very clear that she’s scared and intimidated by black people
    cause she know for a FACT they gon beat her )^*@*`*@_!&&+^+ if she cross them
    HOOPZ too.

    I wish they wouldve put LARISSA and SHEY on the show
    instead of NIBBLZ and MIDGET MAC
    PUMPKIN would for sure keep her mouth shut with them 2 around

    MEGAN was the best the that happened to the show
    so people need to stop hating on her already

  7. Chris says:

    Megan was the best and she was the star of the show! I wish they showed all this stuff. I pray theres a second season and Megan is on it! I Love Money is the best VH1 show!

  8. brittany says:

    How is it that Destiny’s father keeps kicking the bucket? She said he died shortly after ROL2 wrapped and even talked about it in her interview before I Love Money started. Then he mysteriously died, again, right after Toastee kicked her off. He would have been sitting in cold storage somewhere if he had to wait 3 plus weeks to be buried in the time that it took for Entertainer’s run on the show to end.

  9. Natasha says:

    I really hate Pumpkin. She’s so pathetic, it’s embarrassing to watch.

  10. Boogiegirl says:

    I think Megan is hilarious. She played a good game. I hate the way Heather portrayed herself last night, I lost all respect for her while she was “exposing” other people. Heather is bitter.

  11. ChelSea says:

    I Love Megan. She’s great! 12-Pack and The Entertainer are Fun too! Heather needs some Anger-Management Classes. She obviously has very Low self esteem. As does Pumkin. She needs help.

    I can’t wait to watch Daisy’s new show!!

    people act and do some crazy, outta ur element @@~*&!^^(!)^(@#! when it comes down to $$. i think megan PLAYED the game the right way….cant hate on her for using her manipulative mind!!! i like pumpkin but she is not a classy bi*ch…charm school did not a thing for her (she ended up looking like a wh*re on that show too)…grow up pumpkin and go see a dentist to fix ur horse mouth, everything that comes outta ur mouth just sounds like blah blah blah…the only good thing that ever came out was the spit that landed on NY’s chin…and shes using that to get her higher on the reality ladder of fame…seriously…do something else (that includes a bit of class) to get u noticed!!! heather and hoopz r the realest girls on the show!!!

  14. Kelly says:

    Megan is great and I liked how she played the game, the only thing I DO NOT LIKE ABOUT HER is when she tells people that they are jealous of her like she is the most beautiful thing to land on this earth. That is disgusting.
