Houston socialite returns to TV for Bachelor Pad 2

If you just watched the premiere of "Bachelor Pad" on Monday, then you know Houston's very own controversial reality TV star is at it again.

There's no doubt Houston socialite Erica Rose has made a name for herself as the reality TV star fans love to hate.

"I think after the Bachelor Pad, that won't exist anymore, because there's a lot more crazy people on the Bachelor Pad than me," Rose said.

Rose claims she's shed her spoiled princess image along with those tiaras and has taken on the role of comic relief.

"I'm just naturally entertaining, a funny person. I have a good sense of humor and I'm really not that dramatic at all, so I don't think that that's part of it," she said.

And while they call this reality TV, how much is really real?

"No one was acting or putting on any acts for the camera or putting on any fake drama. It was the same off camera as it was on camera. There wasn't any fakeness going into it," Rose said.

She promises fans of "Bachelor Pad" Season 2 won't be disappointed. Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi reunite after their very nasty public split. And Rose says it's all-out war.

"Jake and Vienna just really don't get along and they just don't see eye-to-eye and she just really doesn't want to forgive him," Rose said.

Rose and Girardi became fast friends while shooting the show. And she's the reason her newfound friend decided to get a new nose.

"She thought that I had a really great nose and everything so I just encouraged her to do it and I told her that my dad would be more than willing to do it," Rose said.

Rose's father is renowned Houston plastic surgeon Dr. Franklin Rose. Girardi flew to the Bayou City last month and had the surgery. The before and after pictures are featured in this week's "Us Weekly." She even stayed at the Rose family home during her recovery.

So does this mean he'll become the doctor to the reality TV stars?

"Some of them want also to have plastic surgery, so I guess back in the day there were plastic surgeons up at the Playboy mansion. Now we can be plastic surgeons for The Bachelor franchise," Dr. Franklin Rose said.

Rose is not only back in the reality TV saddle, she's also in law school at UH and hopes to become an entertainment lawyer with, you guessed it, her own reality TV court show, so Nancy Grace and Judge Judy, watch out.

"Those are two women that I really admire. But they're both older and I really think there needs to be a younger TV personality in the legal world," she said.
