'Top Model' Star: Why I Left Jonny Fairplay ...

7/1/2011 2:56 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Former "America's Next Top Model" contestant Michelle Deighton tells TMZ she decided to walk out on her husband Jonny Fairplay because she feels like she's married to a child.


Deighton -- who's been married to the "Survivor" villain since 2008 -- tells TMZ ... "I work 40 hours a week at a daycare to support us, yet he would still want me to come home and cook and clean for him."

"I left because I was tired of feeling like I had two children instead of a husband and a daughter."

She adds, "I just want out of this unhealthy relationship.  I have tried to work this out but he refuses to speak to me."

As TMZ first reported -- Fairplay served his wife with separation papers this week -- after she moved herself and her daughter out of the family home.

Jonny Fairplay is an idiot. Him and Spencer Pratt should go out drinking together and give Ryan Dunn's last stunt a try.

I married him while he was making decent income because I didn't have to work. Now that he's not making money and I have to get a job, I see no point in honoring my vows to him. Of course I'm going to take the kid because I want that child support.

She sure didn't think he was a child when she was whoring herself off on Tough Enough (which she quit after a few episodes) and she needed someone watch their kid.

She didn't want to "cook and clean" for her husband? Call me, "old fashioned;" but, isn't that what wives are suppose to do for their husbands?

What is it with men thinking their wives are their slaves, maids and servants? I think women don't mind doing the domestic thing as long as they're not expected to do everything by their self all the time. You live there too. Run a va**** now and then. Wash a dish. Pick up your crap. Wouldn't kill you to cook a meal once in a blue moon. She was working while he did what? Made a list of things for her to do when she got home?

So... in other words, Jonny Fairplay is a childlike imbicile? Better late than never for Michelle, I suppose.

He is a complete pig. I worked with him one time (March '10), and all he could do is hang his tongue out salivating over all the women, trying to get them in bed. I obviously turned him down, but I'm pretty sure he was serious about bringing girls back to his hotel room. Disgusting. Definitely didn't know he was married.

@canadasux... call me modern but shouldn't a marriage be a partnership? If he is not working while she is, he should be helping to take care of the home and the child and vice versa, end of story. If you allow your husband to do nothing but take from you and think that is okay, that is your business; the smart women among us know better.

Uhm... the entire world knew this guy was an immature ****. Way to catch up to 2003, Michelle.
