In a post dated Dec. 30, Michaels wrote: "My baby is FINALLY home. So funny. I never used to care about being away from people I dated. I loved having the space. Now, I seem to count the seconds. Am i getting old and soft? Get a few hours together and then I am off to BL. Monkeys are back on campus. Work to be done."

More than 600 people, many of whom found the term "monkeys" offensive, posted comments on the item.

A rep for NBC told TVGuide.com that the word was simply a "term of endearment."
