Road Rules’ Michelle killed in crash.
Michelle Parma, a cast member on the European season of Road Rules, died in a car crash Saturday in Texas. A 16-year-old lost control of his car and crossed the interstate’s median, hitting the Jeep she and her cousin were traveling in head-on, MTV News reports. Once a Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader, Michelle participated in the Extreme Challenge last year. Post-Road Rules, she “moved to Los Angeles to pursue acting … [and] later moved back to Texas to become a flight attendant for Southwest,” according to MTV. Michelle was one of the two actors who participated in an Internet hoax in 1998; she portrayed a virgin who was going to lose her virginity online at ourfirsttime.com.
