Fairplay was drunk, flirting with prostitutes backstage at Fox Reality awards

A Bunny Ranch brothel worker and HBO Cathouse star says that Jonny Fairplay was drunk and hitting on women backstage before Danny Bonaduce flipped him onto his face.

As a result of his drinking, Rush and Molloy report, “it’s no wonder that Fairplay … landed on his face when Danny tossed him.” Bunny Ranch worker Brooke Taylor says, “Jonny was drinking heavily backstage. He was trying to make out with me and [fellow Ranch-hand] Bunny Love. He tried to put his hand up my dress. He even tried to lick my toe. All the while, he was talking to me about his pregnant girlfriend. Classy.”

Jon Dalton’s pregnant girlfriend is Top Model 4‘s Michelle Deighton.
