Childhood/Family Life:
Michael is the second of the three Bellucci children, and the only boy of Matteo and Adelina Bellucci. Matteo was an Italian citizen who met Adelina, an Italian-American, during their youth. Matteo was a Bellucci, the only son of Alessandro and Marie Bellucci, and after his father retired, he inherited the Bellucci wine company. Before marrying Matteo, Adelina was known as Adelina Ferrero, one of the two children of Michele Ferrero, the founder of the confectionery company Ferrero Group. Adelina and Matteo were both raised in Italy, but Adelina was born in the United States while her parents were on vacation, making her a citizen. Though the two knew each other since they were children, they only actually got to know each other when they were both in their late twenties and had separately moved to New York. Through mutual contacts, they ended up hanging out together and began dating when Adelina was twenty-eight and Matteo was thirty five. It was a late start (at least in Adelina's parents' eyes) but they fell in love, and married two years later. Adelina was thirty when she had her first child, Luciana. The family was residing in Milan at the time, and remained there for two years, before relocating to the states, where they wanted their children to be raised. Michael was born a few months after they moved into their beach side mansion in California, and spent all of his childhood living there. Of course, summers and school breaks were spent in the many vacation homes that the family had scattered around the globe, with his favorite being their homes in Italy.

After graduating high school, Michael didn't go on to college. He spent the years between eighteen and twenty two traveling the globe as his modeling career blossomed. His parents home in California remained his home base, because it was just easier that way. Why pay your own bills when your parents own an amazing house, in a lusted-over location, and aren't strict or suffocating? There was no reason for him to move out, especially since he was rarely home for more than a couple of days at a time. When he was twenty-two, his parents bought a house in Beverly Hills and essentially gave it to he and Luciana to use as their first pad outside of the house.

Quirks//Habits//Oddities:


Good personality traits:
Adventurous, fun, confident, personable

Bad personality traits:
Reckless, unfaithful, superficial, impulsive

Personality:
If you're friends with Mike, you have to understand that with the good, comes the bad. There's a side of him that's hard for a lot of people not to love. He's personable and social, easily striking up conversation with people he's just met. He's talkative and seems to be able to talk about anything, anywhere, so he's not someone who automatically puts off bad vibes. He usually is a fun person to be around and he knows how to have a good night, so you can bet that if he's inviting you out for a night at the bars or a club, you're going to go home happy, tired, drunk, and usually with some girl to help you get laid. There is an air of confidence that Mike gives off that makes people take him seriously, even if half of the time, he's acting on a whim or doesn't know what he's talking about.

Being adventurous is admirable, as well as being fun and entertaining, but sometimes Mike takes that too far. He can be impulsive and reckless, often acting without considering what he's going to think of his decisions the next morning. Although he's undeniably confident, he often feels unsure of his major decisions and whether he's made a good choice. It's strange, how he won't second guess whether the fifteenth can of beer is really a good idea or not, but he'll wonder if remaining in a relationship with just one girl is going to hurt him. He definitely struggles with commitment, and his impulsiveness and selfishness don't help his case there.

Greatest joys in life:
He's Italian, so food, family, friends and wine are definitely his top four joys in life. There's sex, too, but that's just a universal joy.

Greatest fears:
He fears that he'll accidentally get a girl pregnant. He always uses protection, but shit happens, and he is not anxious for the day some girl he doesn't remember fucking comes knocking on the door with a positive paternity test. It would be straight out of a nightmare for him. He fears that he'll never find "the one", and most recently, that Kate was "the one" and that he lost her due to his own stupidity, carelessness and greed. He also fears commitment, though, and is definitely a victim of FOMO when it comes to his love life and romantic commitments.

Life philosophy:
"Say it before you run out of time. Say it before it’s too late. Say what you’re feeling. Waiting is a mistake."
-Unknown

Build:
He's 6'1, of average weight, and with an athletic figure. He's not extremely buff, but toned enough where he's definitely not self-conscious when he's scarcely clothed on set.

Hair Colour:
Dark brown

Eye Colour:
Hazel

Distinguishing Marks:
None

Style:
He's a high fashion model, so even though he wouldn't say that fashion is his passion, he dresses well. He knows designers, what's being released each season, and what looks best on him. Having that knowledge, why wouldn't he take advantage of it? It's not like it hurts in his frequent plight to get laid, especially now that Kate left him.

So begins...

While all eight of the new starts of "Beyond the Lights" had signed their contracts, it seemed like none, or very few of them, were actually excited to be starting in the hyped up series. Michael wasn't really either, but he thought that he was the only one who actually had a good reason to resent the idea of being on the show right now. He knew that he was going to be forced to face how unfaithful he had been to Kate, and doing so while not being broadcasted on national television had clearly already been difficult enough for him. The idea of the reality show itself wasn't so bad, and he probably would have actually looked forward to it if Kate hadn't been a part of it as well. He knew that there was no way to spin what he had done as being right. There was no justification, no other "love at first sight" girl who had been a part of the affair, who he was still in love with to this day. It was just him being stupid and impulsive, and losing a girl who had truly loved him. He knew he was going to be made to look like an asshole, and he thought that he deserved that reaction from Kate, but not from the whole world. That was a kind of backlash that no one wanted to deal with.

He tried to reach out to Kate before the show started, and on multiple occasions, actually. The last time that she had actually spoken to him was the day after she initially found out about the cheating, and it was a screaming fit that followed the one from the night before, where she told him he had three hours to get all of his stuff out of her driveway. Even after that, though, he continued to try to call and text her, but after two weeks of being sent to her voicemail, it was clear that she wasn't going to budge. He knew that to a girl like Kate, who prized her dignity and image so much, cheating on her was the ultimate betrayal, and being completely cut off was expected. He thought she could have at least been mature enough to forgive him for the purpose of the show. Maybe it spoke to his selfishness, but he felt like it was unfair for her to continue to be mad at him to a point where it was going to affect his image on the show.

The fact that she wasn't going to budge had Mike staying away from New York for as long as possible. He had only flown into New York from California an hour ago, and between getting all of his luggage into a car headed for the Rockefeller penthouse and then getting one for himself, he knew that he was barely going to make it there by the time he was supposed to. He was never a fan of bunch, because it usually meant either missing breakfast or lunch in favor for the other, and he just wasn't that kind of guy. Why anyone would purposely skip out on the chance to eat baffled him, so even after eating his own breakfast, and then lunch at the airport, he had half the mind just to not show up at the Rockefeller's house. It wasn't like he was welcome there, and he knew he wouldn't be missing anything positive, anyway.

Luciana had sensed that Michael was resistant to the idea of the show the day before. At first, he had totally been on board with it. At the time that the show was pitched to everyone, he and Kate were still and healthy couple, and her brother had really seemed on board with the idea. He was the time of guy who lived off of attention, and she associated his success as a model with that ego, so it made sense that he would love some extra, paid camera time. She thought that even with his scandal with Kate, Michael would get over it and still be into the idea of being on television, but just to make sure, as she and Serena were on their way over, she decided to call Michael.

"Yeah, I'm excited," Lucy responded after Serena told the driver to let them off. She smiled at her sister genuinely. Serena was so full of life and energy. Luciana definitely wasn't dull, but she sometimes admired how confident and alive her sister always seemed. "I hope it's not either. Have you spoken to Kate lately? She hasn't answered any of my messages, and I know Mike said she wants nothing to do with him. Hold on, let me call him before we go up. I want to make sure that he's on his way." She paused a few feet away from the Rockefeller's building and called her brother.

"What's up?" Michael answered, picking up his phone on the first ring. He knew it was Luciana and that she was probably wondering where he was, so he was tempted not to answer it, but the buzzing in his pocket was bothering him, so he answered on the last ring. Besides, he was only a block away, so he didn't want her getting worried, like he knew she would, if he didn't answer. "Hey, Mike. How was the flight?" It would have been easier for Luciana to just demand to know where Mike was, but she wasn't that type of cold or demanding person. She didn't get worked up easily, and tended to be more concerned with her family and friend's well being over anything else. "It was alright. Did you need to ask me something, or what? I'm pulling up now, so -- oh, I see you. I'm hanging up." Just because of how genuinely nice Lucy tended to be, Mike usually felt bad if he was being short or uptight in his responses towards her, but he was feeling abnormally nervous right now. "He's here," Lucy smiled as her brother hung up, and she picked out a car pulling up at the curb. "Elliott texted me too, so let me answer him and then when Mike gets over here we'll go in," she thought out loud as she typed a response out to Elliott.

To: Elliot, Charlie
The Belluccis have arrived ;D!

By the time the Kings arrived in front of the entrance of the Rockefeller home, Liv was antsy with a grumbling tummy awaiting food she knew was going to be good and Elliot just wanted to get the day over with. It was difficult for him, at least, having to miss out on some days at work, particularly as it pertained to bands and the like. Elliot was heavily involved in the first works of the artists of his father's Mafioso label; he oversaw albums being dropped, signings, the first few concerts, and a lot of the first few tears artists shed on tours. He was good at making them comfortable, making them ready to do their job, but also take care of the image they originally put out. And sure, Phil could handle the position while he was gone; Elliot was very sure about that. But was he happy about that? Was the guy who was typically in control at all times pleased by leaving everything he was proud of in the hands of some one person who happened to also be qualified for the position Elliot had to work to acquire? Hell no!

To: Rini, Jack Jack
Pulling up now

"Do you think everything will be okay? You know, with Mike and the others?" Liv, once her text to her friends was sent,asked as their Maybach slowed to a stop. Elliot paused in smoothing out his shirt, sighing. Elliot had told Olivia from day one that he didn't trust Mike. Thought he was the slimiest of the group, how he still couldn't possibly believe the guy was even remotely related to Serena and Luciana. Serena could be bad and her with Olivia was just trouble for him and Lucy sometimes. But Mike...Mike was a completely different ball game. Kate wasn't the nicest person in the entire world, but she had never earned what she got from that asshole. Elliot could only imagine how much it truly still pisses Charlie off to have to be in the house with the same guy who broke his sister's heart. Elliot couldn't do it - he probably would have killed Mike the second Liv came home in tears. "Look, he's a douche and like I said before, you need to stay away from him. We all do." Olivia rolled her eyes, running fingers through silver-and-gold streaked hair before forcing on a smile when their driver opened the door for her before letting Elliot out. "I'm...I get it, ok? I'm not saying I...condone what he did...I just..." She just didn't know how much of this was going to affect the way their summer went. The Belluci's and the Rockefellers had been friends for years. A rift between them was something serious. And...despite how much she despised what he did to Kate and how much Liv understood that Mike fucked up, he was still technically one of her friends.

"Awww, don't get all sentimental, Bubbles," Elliot exclaimed with an arm over her shoulder. It was enough to distract Olivia from the cameras flashing. "Remember, you're still allowed to have fun. Just...don't go overboard." Olivia pretended to make a face. "Whaaaat? Meeee? When have I ever...?" She wouldn't have trailed off if she hadn't just so happened to see Mike exiting a car and despite the conversation they were just having, Olivia couldn't fight the smile away. "Is that Mike Belluci over there!? Where's Rina and Luce?" She called and Elliot exhaled, heavily, and pulled out his phone.

To: Charlie, Lucy
We're here

Luciana spotted Michael around the same time as Olivia and Elliot got out of their car, and likely saw Michael as well. He had spun around at the sound of his name, and smirked upon seeing who had called it out. It was Olivia, and less importantly, her brother Elliot stood next to her. Michael and Elliot had never had any real altercations. Their personalities just didn't mesh together well, and both knew it, so they never tried to force anything there. Michael was a fun and and energetic guy, and Elliot was a boring stick in the mud. There wasn't much that could be helped there, and Mike had given up caring about King years ago. "Liv! Don't you look... like you're ready for some fun," he smirked, vocalizing the borderline provocative comment after a hug, as he took a step back to look her up and down. He looked towards Elliot and gave him a nod. It wasn't like he wasn't going to be civil towards Elliot, because compared to the other guys in the house, his beef with Elliot was really non-existent. Even just thinking about that had knots forming in his stomach, but he tried to push the thought away. "The girls are right over there," he added, remembering his sisters and glancing towards the pair that were standing in the doorway of the building.

Lucy waited for the group of three to get closer to her and Serena to wave them over. "Hi guys!" she squealed when they did reach them. She first directed her attention towards the Kings, both of which, she pulled in for a tight squeeze. Her face lit up as she stepped back to take the brother-sister pair in. Although she and Elliot were closer in age and probably hung out more, she wouldn't say that she was closer with one King over the other. Luciana tended to be sentimental with all of her relationships, and was the type of person who couldn't rank one over another. The relationship that she had with the two of them were just different, that was all. With Elliot, he was like a best friend to her. They could really just hang out and have fun. While they both could handle the party scene when necessary, the two also seemed very comfortable just doing things on the down low, where there weren't a million and one cameras there to track what they were doing. He seemed to understand that older sibling complex that she had, too. Olivia was similar to Serena, so in a way, Luciana felt like an older to sister to her as well. She and Serena were best friends, so it wasn't uncommon for them to be wrapped up in the same problems or reeling over the same drama, and Luciana liked to be there for both of them. She sometimes worried for both girls, but she knew that the two of them had good heads on their shoulders. Her worrying was like that of a mother, and she knew that even if both girls were wrapped in bubble wrap, in some town in the middle of no where with nothing to get them into trouble, she would still worry about what they were doing. "You both look amazing," she grinned, taking in Elliot's always-stylish image, and Olivia's effortlessly cool look. "But let's head in. We all know not to keep the Rockefellers waiting by this point," she added with a playful smile. She considered that it was just herself being too paranoid, but she felt like the tension Mike brought over with him was suffocating. It likely did have something to do with herself, and how she would worry about her brother's problems just as much as he, but still. This couldn't be good.
