How did reality show princess Erica Rose react to this week's buzz that man about town Kalon Joseph Reid McMahon might add another Houston face to Bachelor franchise lore?

"Well he once told me he didn't like how I represented Houston on the show," Rose tells CultureMap, "So hopefully he can do a better job than I did!"

If McMahon is on location trying to woo Emily Maynard, Rose sees it as a good match. She confided, "I think that there is a possibility of a romance developing between them — they both like the finer things in life."

 "Well he once told me he didn't like how I represented Houston on the show," Rose tells CultureMap, "So hopefully he can do a better job than I did!" 

The recent law school grad certainly doesn't have to worry about McMahon stealing her thunder, though: Rose is as active as ever, with charity date auctions, new reality show offers on the table and even the odd horror movie — with a cameo by her mom, Cindi Harwood Rose — on tap for the coming months.

Rose will be sold in back-to-back date auctions in Houston (benefiting the Rose Ribbon Foundation) and in LA (benefiting Chris4Life Colon Cancer Foundation), alongside fellow Bachelor Pad alums.
