For Erica Rose, reality television is a thing of the past: The former Bachelor Pad contestant and University of Houston Law Center graduate made the move from glamorous Los Angeles last week and officially started her first adult job on Monday in Houston.
That's right — the city's favorite reality princess is the newest associate at Bergquist Law Firm, a small litigation office in the Heights.
"I'm so tired of school at this point," says Rose, who was considering returning to school in pursuit of her Master of Laws (LL.M.) when she received the job offer. She has seen fellow law school grads struggling to find open positions and immediately decided to accept.
For now, Rose's life is decidedly low-key as she prepares to move into an inner Loop luxury condominium and learns the pace of this new, full-time career.
But that's not to say that she won't ever return to TV.
"My long-term goal is still to have my own court show one day," Rose tells CultureMap.
