Clare Crawley spent 'The Bachelor' premiere sick and hooked up to IV, Michelle Money blasts drunk report

Bachelor in Paradise star Clare Crawley apparently missed out on much of the party thrown Monday night to celebrate the premiere of Chris Soules' season.
"My brave little soldier made it thru a rough night of dehydration! Long day on the red carpet for this one! Thanks to Alex and Andrew from the LAFD who provided the IV and the entertainment for the night! @clarecrawley," fellow Bachelor in Paradise star Michelle Moneycaptioned a January 6 photo on Instagram of Crawley looking very sad with an IV in her arm.
Crawley, who had been rejected by former Bachelor Juan Pablo Galavis, had been treated by paramedics and forced to lie in bed for most of Monday night.
Crawley told TMZ she sought help after experiencing hot flashes, severe cramping and terrible nausea. She reportedly started to feel ill after walking the red carpet and therefore returned to her hotel room with Money, who also previously competed on Bachelor Pad and The Bachelor's fifteenth season.
Money then called 911 once she realized Crawley's condition was pretty dire, according to the website, and the Los Angeles Fire Department came to her aid with anti-nausea medications and fluids.
The TMZ report claimed Crawley, 32, had been boozing all day leading up to The Bachelor's nineteenth-season premiere. While pointing out that Crawley had claimed she never drinks, TMZ still reported that Crawley had attributed her health scare to drinking alcohol on an empty stomach in addition to dehydration.
Money then took to Instagram again on January 7 to express her disgust for TMZ's "deceitful" and "classless" report.
"I can honestly say that I am disgusted at @tmz_tv and the article they wrote about @clarecrawley drinking. Clare has never drank alcohol in her entire life. I was sitting right next to her when TMZ called her and heard Clare say specifically, 'I have never had a drink in my whole life,' which is the truth," Money captioned another photo of Crawley with a big smile on her face.
"It's crap like this that makes me wonder how people sleep at night. To have someone take a pretty scary situation and deliberately twist it and deceive people is classless. All credibility is gone with this disgusting attempt at trying to degrade a woman like Clare. An unfollow is deserved if anyone is following them. #tacky #classless #shameontmz."
