'Gigolos' Star Brace Is Definitely Not Hooked on Monkeys

EXCLUSIVE

A very famous gigolo just learned a very important lesson ... monkeys are way harder to control than chicks.

Brace, one of the stars of "Gigolos," was in the market for a pet after his beloved dog Zeus passed. Fate connected him with Mikey the monkey ... it was an instant disaster.

Mikey went on a tear, breaking drinking glasses, running his tiny motorized car into a family heirloom vase and violently yanking Brace's sister's hair. 

3 strikes and the monkey was out. It could have been a financial disaster. He paid just shy of $5k, but the seller had given Brace a 1 week trial period and it took way less time for him to demand a refund.

If you're still curious, Mikey makes an appearance on an upcoming show. But you know, curiosity killed the cat ... which is good because if it didn't Mikey would have done it.
