"People need to understand this was really the first week where Michelle started to annoy him. For the viewer, this has been happening since Week 1, but all he's seen is the sexy woman who always challenges him and then makes out with him. And she's hot. Let's face it, hot girls can get away with a lot. People are so ready for her to go, but you've got to let Brad figure it out," Chris toldTV Guide on Tuesday.
Money will do whatever it takes to convince Womack the other bachelorettes aren't right for him, but Harrison told TV Guide that while the other women felt she was crossing the line, Money wasn't breaking the show's rules when she snuck into Womack's room in Costa Rica during Monday night's episode.
"Here's the rule: We keep one camera around until they fall asleep and then we take off. There's always a handler in case something happens, but not a camera. When all the girls fell asleep Michelle stayed up and snuck off. You're allowed to do what you want as long as we know about it," Harrison explained.
Money's behavior has often come across as controversial or shocking to viewers, however Harrison said many of her comments about the other girls were actually made in jest.
"She doesn't actually hope [Chantal O'Brien] gets her face ripped off by monkeys, but that relationship was very adversarial because they saw each other as the two queen bees and they both were on the top. Brad liked them both and they knew it and that drove them crazy," Harrison said.
"Hopefully [at the Women Tell All] Michelle will own up and say, 'I'm not the crazy b---- everyone thinks I am, but looking back I see how everyone got that impression. Please understand I'm not as crazy as I appear to be.'"
While it's clear that Womack and O'Brien have a strong connection, Harrison said he was unaware O'Brien was going to confess her love for him so early on in the journey.
"I was shocked and I think Brad was a little shocked, but was happy to hear it; that was one of the bright spots of the week for him. She seems like she's got this tough exterior, but deep inside she's a vulnerable little woman," he explained.
Womack was apparently frustrated and overwhelmed during his week in Costa Rica, but Harrison revealed that his attitude would not carry over to Anguilla, the location of next Monday night's episode.
"Brad's in a much better mood, thank God. He was on edge and at odds with himself... All the drama and travel added up and he was just in a mood," Harrison added.
