We called over to the frat house and interrupted what was surely some serious studying to talk with Michael about his episode of "Real Housewives."
Bravotv.com: Tonight is your big episode. Are you prepared?
Yeah. My friends and I are getting ready for it. They're all pretty excited for it.
Bravotv.com: You don't come off well in it. Yeah, I know.
Bravotv.com: Do you have anything you want to say to the fans of the show?
How I'm edited on TV is not how I am in real life. I have plenty of friends and I go to class, and I love my mom. I didn't quite get a 3.5. I'm not getting a car. (laughs)
Bravotv.com: So your mom comes and brings a case of beer as a surprise. How did that go?
Well, at first I was really upset that she was there, that she came and didn't tell me, but after a while we had a good time. She hung out with my friends, it was fun.
Bravotv.com: It looks fun. She does a keg stand.
Yeah. I figured if she was going to surprise me, I was going to get her up on the keg.
Bravotv.com: Do people recognize you on campus?
Last year, not really. But since the new season, I think a lot more people are watching. I get spotted on campus every now and then.
Bravotv.com: People have a perception of growing up in Orange County. What do you think everyone says about it?
I think people realize that it takes a lot of money to live there. You have to have a pretty nice job. Everyone is pretty well off. And the kids are mostly spoiled.
Bravotv.com: Is it a true stereotype?
I think so. But we don't always look at it like that. It's just our lives.
Bravotv.com: Are you close with your sister?
Yeah, we talk every now and then. We're good friends, we can pretty much tell each other anything.
Bravotv.com: What else about you should we know?
I'm still together with Lauren, we've been together for a while now, things are good. I'm a psychology major at CU Boulder. I'm a junior.
Bravotv.com: How are things with your mom?
My mom and I get along great, actually. We're good friends. And that's good. Yeah, I love my mom.
