Despite all of the negative tabloid reports, it appears newly engaged Bachelorette couple Ashley Hebert and J.P. Rosenbaum are moving full speed ahead!

The couple appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! during which they dished on their future together as well as their wedding plans.

Though we just saw their engagement play out on Monday night, the proposal actually took place back in May. The two have had to see each other in secret in other to keep the show’s ending under wraps. Ashley, 27, and J.P., 34, revealed they had been having chaperoned dates in secret every two weeks since filming ended.

In fact J.P. reveals he became dependent on technology to keep in touch with his fiance. “We live on Skype,” he told Kimmel. “I don’t watch any TV any more. It’s work, gym, three hours of Skype, sleep.”

Ashley once again talked about her plans to move in with J.P., who is a construction manager in New York, after she finishes dental school in September.

But perhaps the biggest surprise is that the couple is already planning their wedding! “We really want to focus on our engagement, but I’m thinking fall of next year!” gushed Ashley. And when it comes to Ashley’s sister, Chrystie, who made it clear she wasn’t a fan of JP’s on the finale, J.P. reveals Chrystie feels very differently today. “She’s been nothing but sweet and supportive since we got back,” J.P. told Kimmel. “It’s as is if I didn’t even know who that person was back in Fiji.”

Meanwhile, below is a photo of Ashley’s Neil Lane engagement ring! The 3.5-carat, central cushion-cut sparkler accented with 162 small, hand-set diamonds around a platinum band is reportedly valued at around $60,000.


The country watched last night as J.P. Rosenbaum proposed to Bachelorette star Ashley Hebert and she said yes! But will it be a happily ever after for the newly engaged couple?

While Ashley revealed on the After The Rose special last night that things are going very well between the two of them and that she is planning to move to New York City to live with J.P., the couple will have some major hurdles to overcome.

Like most past Bachelor couples, the tabloids have been having a field day with J.P. According to reports, he is a jealous controlling man with a wondering eye and might already be cheating on Ashley.

An In Touch Weekly report from weeks ago stated J.P. has not been acting like an engaged man while out and about in NYC. A source told the mag that on June 24, he met a male and female friend at a local bar and “he held the girl’s hand and looked into her eyes.” The witness continued, “They looked really close. Before she got up to leave, she gave [AF] a huge hug; it was really intimate.”

And during another outing, a different source reveals J.P. “was so aggressive and drunk” with the women there that he almost got kicked out of the venue.

Perhaps the most damning revelation is a woman who claims J.P. flat out asked her out recently. “If Ashley picked him, he’s not being faithful – he’s asked me out a bunch of times,” said the source. Another source insists J.P. is not who he portrayed himself to be on the show. “He seems genuine when he’s talking to Ashley, but he’s actually kind of a jerk.”

Another report also came out last week claiming J.P. was still not over his ex. As for Ashley, it appears she is choosing to stand by her fiance for the time being. The two appeared together on GMA this morning to gush about their relationship and Ashley even tweeted the photo below of both of them at the ABC studios.

Only time will tell if these two will end up making it down the aisle but surely these types of tabloid reports can’t be helping their relationship.

Meanwhile don’t feel too badly for Ben Flajnik following his heartbreak as he has already moved on from Ashley. Ben is reportedly dating Bachelor alum Britt Billmaier, who competed with Ashley on Brad Womack’s second season of The Bachelor. “They’re having fun together. He’s definitely not wallowing over the break-up with Ashley,” says a source. A picture of Britt is below!


On Monday night, Bachelorette star Ashley Hebert narrowed down her picks to the final 2!

One of those lucky men is J.P. Rosenbaum who is now the target of some not so flattering tabloid reports. According to a new cover story by In Touch Weekly, J.P. is a jealous and controlling person who is still not over his ex.

The mag claims that J.P., who seems like a sweet and happy guy on the show, has been living a double life for the sake of the cameras. “J.P. was severely depressed over the breakup when he tried out for the show,” reveals a Bachelorette insider. In fact, “he only tried out for The Bachelorette at the insistence of a friend who wanted to snap him out of his heartbreak.”

That ex is Stephanie Kerman, a 27-year-old publicist in NYC, who reportedly broke J.P.’s heart back in 2008, and has since moved on with another serious boyfriend. A source however insists J.P. just can’t seem to totally move forward. “After she broke up with him, he would send her flowers at work, and I remember him showing up at the office more than once,” a friend of Stephanie’s explains.

The friend adds that jealousy and other factors led to their breakup. “I think he is a very jealous person,” says the friend. “Stephanie met someone she was attracted to, and that was the beginning of the end of their relationship… J.P. was a nice guy, but he seemed a little controlling.”

And this might be a problem for Ashley if J.P. is the guy she is currently engaged to. In Touch adds that even though J.P. has told Ashley he loves her and might be receiving the final rose on the finale, he may still be too damaged by “the one that got away” to live happily ever after with Ashley.

In today’s Bachelorette news, Ashley Hebert is actually admitting the obvious she did not make a good Bachelorette.

Ashley, who has been heavily criticized for being too insecure as well as for her decision to keep douchebag Bentley Williams on the show much longer than she should have, made the surprising revelation in a recent interview.

“I don’t know that I have made a good Bachelorette,” Ashley confesses to the Philadelphia Inquirer. “In a way, I think I’m too honest. If I’m not into somebody, I have a hard time faking it and I think in this environment, you have to be able to do that sometimes.” Yeah that’s the reason.


As for the whole Bentley debacle, Ashley admits she was a bit jaded after having her heart broken. “Now I feel like I’m jaded,” she admits. “I think I’ve learned a lot about people, but it’s kind of a sad thing.”

Ashley also goes on to deny that she is insecure! Err is she watching the same show we’re watching? “Despite what people believe, I’m actually pretty secure in myself,” she explains. “There’s a lot of good things happening too. You don’t see much of that. You only see what sucks people in.”

Meanwhile, with Ashley’s sucky season of the Bachelorette winding down, there is now a ton of speculation on who will be the next Bachelor! The front-runner? None other than Ryan Park who will be making a “shocking” return to the show tonight to try to win back Ashley.

Bachelor insider Reality Steve however tells Life & Style magazine that Ryan’s return is really to position himself to become the next Bachelor a la Jake Pavelka.

“Ryan goes back to Fiji to try to win Ashley back [during the July 25 episode],” said RS. “Producers probably told him that by going back, he would have a good chance to be the next Bachelor.”

Three guys remain on the show with a new episode airing tonight on ABC at 8/7c. Ashley will narrow down the contestants to the final two!


Emily Maynard, Brad Womack

Days after Emily Maynard’s sit down ‘break up’ interview aired on ABC, a new report is now stating Brad Womack wants her back!

According to the latest issue of UsWeekly magazine, former Bachelor Brad is still hoping he can win back his ex-fiance Emily and has been totally distraught since the split.

A source reveals Brad, 38, continues to drunk-dial Emily, 25. “When they weren’t together, Brad would drunk-dial Emily and cry,” says the source. A friend also reveals that Brad would be crushed if Emily went on to become the Bachelorette as reported. “It would kill him,” says the friend.

Brad’s ex Laurel Kagay has said on numerous occasions that her relationship with Brad was very unhealthy. Laurel stated Brad had a scary temper and would continuously break up with her only to beg her to take him back days later. Perhaps Brad was doing the same thing with Emily and she got fed up.

As for the reason Brad did not participate in the interview with Emily, sources reveal he was simply too distressed over the break up. Other sources add that Brad also declined the invite because he did not want another Jake and Vienna situation. Probably the smartest decision he’s made in decades.

As for those reports stating Emily will be the next Bachelorette, host Chris Harrison admits that while Emily’s name has been tossed around, it is far from a done deal.

“It’s obviously been bantered about,” Chris tells Access Hollywood. “We’re not idiots, we talked about it, of course, but it hadn’t even been broached to her. It is way too soon.” Chris also adds that it is simply way too early to pick a Bachelorette as production on the new season will not begin for at least 6 months.

“It is way too early, way too presumptuous of anybody to say she’s The Bachelorette,” say Chris adding, “We would never pigeonhole ourselves … this early.”


According to a new report, Bachelor “winner” Emily Maynard, 25, is in talks to be the next Bachelorette with sources revealing it’s almost a done deal!

UsWeekly is reporting the newly single Emily, who recently confirmed her break up with Brad Womack, is angling to become the next Bachelorette just a month after splitting from Brad.

“She hasn’t officially signed on yet, but it looks like a done deal,” a source reveals. And despite Emily’s recent comments that appearing on the series was “the last thing on my mind,” the insider adds that Emily is hoping to use her stint on the show to jump-start a broadcast career… of course. “She wants to be famous,” the source says of the single mom to 6-year-old daughter Ricki.

And with the show ratings down about 10% this season with the boring Ashley Hebert, ABC execs reportedly have high hopes for Emily: “They know she’s a fan favorite,” reveals a source.

In addition to boosting her profile, Emily is also reportedly ready to move on from her ex-fiance Brad. “He has issues, and you could tell from the start that it was never going to work with Emily,” another insider reveals. A pal however insists Emily “gave it everything she had.”

If Emily does indeed become the next Bachelorette, it is likely ABC will film her season right away instead of waiting until next year. Plus in looking at Ashley’s final four, none of the men really seem like Bachelor candidates.


Bachelorette Bentley Williams ex-wife SuzetteThe Bachelorette ABC

A week following his second departure on the Bachelorette, villain Bentley Williams is still the topic of conversation.

In the latest issue of In Touch Weekly magazine, sources as well as Bentley’s ex-wife Suzette Davis are speaking out against him as Bentley is described as being mentally unstable.

A source says Bentley is not putting on an act on the show and that he acted the same way with Suzette. “He acts like he has a split personality,” the source explains. “He’s very unstable.”

Suzette also chimed in adding that Bentley’s odd behavior was to blame for their divorce. “He was extremely inconsistent with me, sending me mixed signals,” Suzette reveals of her two-year marriage to Bentley. “It was very emotionally unhealthy, unsafe and draining.”

Suzette adds that Bentley’s decision to do the ABC show was a surprise to her as they had been working on reconciling. “We’d been divorced for about 18 months, but we’d been spending a lot of time together trying to make up,” remembers Suzette. “I thought he was insane.” Bentley however assured Suzette he was only going on the show to promote his business.

And after seeing the way Bentley treated Ashley Hebert on the show, Suzette reveals it reaffirmed she made the right choice in leaving him. “The way he was on TV just reaffirmed my earlier decision to divorce him,” says Suzette. “He does have a sweet, tender side, but he can turn cruel in a heartbeat.”

“At the end of the day, I feel bad for him,” adds the first source. “He’s so unstable, I don’t even think that Bentley knows who Bentley is.” While it was reported last month that Bentley’s place of business was receiving death threats, he seems to be doing much better these days as he now has a new girlfriend and yes, she’s a blonde.

Bachelorette Ashley

Poor Ashley Hebert…she’s looking for love on the Bachelorette but can’t seem to catch a break. We have watched the train wreck that is Bentley Williams all but derail her quest to find her Prince Charming, and then a report came out stating the man she chose aka her fiance is a womanizer.

So are the remaining suitors as perfect as they seem? On the most recent episode, Ames Brown, the Manhattan financier who seems shy yet smooth, gains flirty points with Ashley for a lame make-out session in an elevator. He is also riding on his sympathy points from two episodes ago when he got a concussion during a round of Thai boxing. I don’t know about you, but I think that had Ames not gone to the hospital, he wouldn’t have been around this week for me to blog about on Reality Tea.

As skeletons of the final guys come running out of their closets, those closest to them are quick to send their warnings to Ashley…all out of the goodness of their hearts and not because they want to see themselves quoted in a tabloid. Case in point, an ex-girlfriend of Ames’ reveals to Life and Style, that while he did graduate from an Ivy League School, he’s hardly the “portfolio manager” his Bachelorette bio proclaims.

The mystery lady says, “Ames never has real jobs. He just gets degrees and travels around.” To that I say, why is that bad? He clearly has the funds to do what he wants, so what if Ashley has to spend a couple years traveling with her over-educated, under-employed world-traveling husband? I mean, besides the fact that he can’t handle a punch and seems slightly awkward in social situations, what’s the problem?

And it doesn’t end there…from the over-educated to the over-excited, people from Ryan Park’s past are coming forward to explain that over-eager solar energy executive from California (who is not well liked among his fellow cast mates, to put it nicely) is only on the show to promote himself. A source reveals, “He broke up with his girlfriend right before he went on the show because he told her he wasn’t ready to get married and didn’t feel like marriage was in his future.” Hmmm…it makes sense to do that before going on a show where you don’t win money or vacations or excessive material things, but instead you are trying to win A SPOUSE.

We’ll all have to wait and see if these accusations have a grain of truth or if some scorned ex-girlfriends are just looking for their fifteen minutes seconds of fame. Regardless, I’ll bet that Bentley is thanking his lucky stars that he won’t be the only one with sketchy motives when the guys are put in Chris Harrison’s hot seat on The Men Tell All.

The show is on hiatus tonight. It returns next week with the all new interview with Emily Maynard.
