Someone just yells “Tequila!” and you know it's likely that Rock of Love Bus
will follow. After being eliminated on Bret Michaels
' third reality dating show, the Brazilian lady talked to VH1about how she behaved on the series, her feelings (or lack of it) for the Poison frontman, and why she thinks she got kicked out.
“Honestly, I didn't have time to think about Bret,” Marcia confessed. “He was in and out so much. He'd come in to talk and be gone. I'd be like, “Whoa! What was that? Was that Bret?” It was too quick to think about him. He's a cool guy, but I did have more connection with the bottle of tequila. That was true.”
Apparently, Marcia didn't even know Bret Michaels until the second season of Rock of Love
. “The way I got onto the show was that I was at a pool party in Vegas and, of course, I was drinking tons of tequila. The next day, this girl called me and she was acting like she knew me forever. I had no idea who she was.” The next thing she knew, she was already being dragged into the casting call for the program.
She admits that she didn't really ride the Rock of Love Bus
for fame. It was all a matter of adventure. “I'm up for anything. I'm up for meeting new people, for traveling, anything. I'm not trying to be a star. It just fell into my lap. It was more for experience, actually.”
While the experience made her memorable to many audiences, Marcia admits that she doesn't quite recall all her antics on Rock of Love Bus
. “[T]he fight with Ashley
is the only thing I don't remember. Sometimes I watch and I'll say, “Whoa. Did I really say that?” But it's not like everyone remembers everything, right?”
Marcia also wanted to set things straight. “Everyone thinks I'm this huge party girl. I love to stay home and watch movies and cook. When I party, I party, but I don't drink as much as I did on the show. I had a bottle and a half one day, they said. Now, I believe I had one bottle, but I don't remember the other half.”
When asked if she regretted her stint on the VH1 reality show, the Vegas VIP hostess answered “No. I got there I was myself. I wasn't trying to be anybody else. I should have drank a little bit less. Maybe I would have stayed longer on the show, but I don't regret it. I'll do it again.”
