"ohhhh God dear lord have mercy! I BARELY just got back from a 15 hour flight from Australia and the minute I land there is a TON of media lies about me out!" Tequila wrote Friday on her personal website, responding to a New York Post report in which a source "close to the show" said Tequila is "not really bi." "[That article] about me [is] full of LIES!"
The source went on to tell ThePost that while Tequila has "made out with some girls in her past," it was immediately discredited because "all girls have" and that doesn't make a person bi-sexual.
"I find it absolutely absurd that they would even make such an ignorant statement," wrote Tequila. "That is such an absurd stereotype to place on all women and it just shows people how ignorant people can be!"
In addition to being angry at the "media lies," Tequila also found it humorous that the source told the Post she "has and has had a boyfriend for over a year" who is "like five years older than her."
"The thing that made me laugh the most and how you can tell the 'source' was lying was because how they talk about me so called having a boyfriend and they said 'He's like....5 years older than her' Just look at the way they talk about it," wrote Tequila. "Apparently these are made up rumors. People are really silly to have so much time on their hands to call up newspapers and make up lies."
The source also complained about the 25-year-old bisexual model constantly arriving late for shooting A Shot at Love.
"How could I always be 'late' when I could never leave [in] the first place??? We filmed at MY reality house so that means that I lived in the house with everyone else," she wrote. "I was never allowed to leave....ever...not even to meet up with friends for lunch! That's the way it worked. The producers wanted the contestants and I to be really engaged in each other so they thought it would be best that I never leave or have contact with the outside world! HELLLOOO! Arriving late...pshhhh...my ass!"
Even when Tequila was there for filming, the Post's source accused her of not conversing with any of the contestants trying to win her heart during takes.
"Can we say HA HA HA? because there were no 'TAKES' seeing how it's a reality show," wrote Tequila, apparently unfamiliar with MTV's The Hills. "The producers just keep filming us as we go live and then they take all the footage to edit the episodes....so there's not any time for 'RE-TAKES' you think all the girlfights and our crying was shot like more than once? I think not, and if that were the case then DAMN....where are our Academy Awards for our fabulous acting skills??? Pfffft!"
Despite the fiery response on her personal website, Tequila is apparently taking the report in stride.
"People can say whatever they want about me. My whole life I have been judged so that's nothing new to me so I don't feel the need to justify my sexuality to anyone!" she wrote. "One minute, back in the day when I was still modeling, people talked shit about me for being 'lesbian' for shooting sexy pictures with other females and now I'm too 'straight' come one....who's really the confused one here? Definitely not me! HA!"

Tequila also offered some advice to the person who employs the Post's source.
"Let me just say that whomever they are getting their 'sources' from needs to be fired real fast!" she wrote.
