Bachelorette

If you thought you had seen the last of major d-bag Bentley Williams on The Bachelorette, you thought wrong.

According to reports, Bentley will be back on the show. The reason? Because Ashley Hebert wanted him back and had producers of the show call him everyday for two weeks to beg him to return. Wowzers. “Ashley wanted a second chance with Bentley, so she begged producers to get him on the phone and get him on a plane out to see her,” a Bachelorette insider tells Life & Style. “She couldn’t stop thinking about him after he left her.”

Host Chris Harrison also confirms Bentley does indeed return to the show in a later episode. It gets even worse as Bentley ended up rejecting Ashley again upon his return. A friend states he didn’t have a change of heart and only wanted a free vacation. “He’s never been to Hong Kong,” the friend notes.

And some fans of the ABC show have wondered why Chris and the producers never stepped in to warn Ashley about Bentley, when it came to his comments about her in his interviews (aka Ashley’s an ugly ducking and he’s not attracted to her). Well other than the obvious reason of it brings in ratings, host Chris claims it’s because they didn’t want to interfere with Ashley’s process.

“If you have information about a guy before he even gets out of the limo, that’s beyond a red flag. We gave her the option and said, “You don’t have to meet this guy. We can pull him.” We justify everything by giving Ashley the power. It was her job to say no,” said Chris to PEOPLE. “We don’t step in and say, “That’s the wrong decision.” We never do. She was privy to some of the information. I had many conversations with her about this and so did the producers but she defended him every step of the way. She never heeded any of the warning signs.”

Chris does make a valid point as Ashley was definitely warned beforehand that Bentley was only on the show to promote his business. Chris also goes on to add that perhaps the show would have stepped in had Bentley remained on much longer. Right. “We were only two weeks in and … I don’t know what steps we would have taken if this had gone on any longer or if we would have finally just shown her his interviews,” said Chris.

Following Bentley Williams’ ousting on last night’s episode of the Bachelorette, Ashley Hebert is now opening up on her feelings of “betrayal and embarrassment.”

And unfortunately for Ashley, she did not even get the chance to send Bentley packing as the douchebag simply decided to quit on his own after Ashley confronted him on possibly being there for the wrong reasons.

“I don’t want to stay here. I’ve been saying from the beginning she’s not my type,” said Bentley after lying to Ashley that he had to leave to go be with his 2-year-old daughter Cozy (yes he named his daughter Cozy). “The guys know I’m a frontrunner, but none of them have any idea that I don’t care about Ashley. I had the opportunity and I played everyone,” he later added.

Today, Ashley is speaking out on watching Bentley’s words and actions on the last three episodes of the show. “Throughout the first two episodes, I was very surprised by the things he said, but a part of me still looked for the good in him, and wanted to, once again, give him the benefit of the doubt,” said Ashley in her PEOPLE blog. “After watching this episode, I can’t help but feel betrayed, lied to, and made a fool of. I know many people wonder why I kept him around after the warning I got.”

Ashley goes on to explain why she kept him around for so long. “People may speculate I was attracted to the “bad boy,” or maybe they thought I wanted what I couldn’t have. The truth is that I always look for the good in people, and I saw that in him,” said Ashley. “I only knew what he showed me, and I felt it to be real at the time. I can tell you that from the bottom of my heart, I don’t remember ever feeling this depth of hurt and embarrassment. Unfortunately, it’s not the last you will see of Bentley.”

Once again, the ending for the Bachelor/Bachelorette series has been revealed early on in the season.

Bachelor insider Reality Steve has done it again, revealing Ashley Hebert’s final four and most importantly her final pick! And it seems Ashley found love as she is engaged to one of the men from the show.

Though he had Brad Womack’s final two picks mixed up last season, Reality Steve assures us his spoilers are 100% accurate this season. We will find out on August 1 when ABC airs the finale.

Do not read any further if you do not want to know the ending. If you do, the spoilers are below!

The Bachelor(ette) franchises have brought us some major villains over the years – example Wes Hayden, Rozlyn Papa, and Michelle Money – but it seems this season’s Bentley Williams without a doubt takes the cake.

On last night’s episode of the Bachelorette, Bentley showed no mercy in repeatedly bashing the poor Ashley Hebert behind her back. Oddly enough, Ashley revealed on the show’s season premiere that a former cast member had warned her Bentley was only there for the cameras, but of course she still decided to give him a shot.

Bentley, a 28-year-old single dad, started the nastiness last week when he revealed he had hoped Emily Maynard would be the Bachelorette. He then added that Ashley wasn’t his type. I’m sure Emily’s flattered.

And last night in Las Vegas, he had more ugly comments about Ashley. “She has a great body, amazing butt, rocking legs,” said Bentley. “The competition makes it exciting… and that’s the extent in terms of my interest. You know, I mean, she’s just not my type.” We heard you the first time jerk-off.

It got even worse as Bentley then decided to play mind games with Ashley during their one on one time, threatening to leave the show to go be with his daughter. Ashley unfortunately begged him to stay. “If you feel something for me, please stay, because I feel something for you,” begged Ashley. “If you feel something for me, please, please, please stick around. Please, please, please.”

Bentley had some more choice words after getting a rose on his group date. “It comes down to the fact that I get competitive about every thing,” he said. “I’d rather be swimming in pee than planning a wedding with her.” Wowzers.

This morning, poor Ashley is now speaking out on Bentley’s words and actions. Below is the excerpt from Ashley’s latest blog with PEOPLE -

“In closing, I want to say that I learn so much about these men from watching the episodes – the good, the bad and the ugly. The most important thing I told myself from the start was that I would always be open with the way I feel, even if there was the potential to be hurt. I said that I wouldn’t want to look back with regrets. Even as I cringe through some of the things that Bentley said throughout filming, I wouldn’t change the way I was, because in that moment it was the way I felt. Everyone is responsible for their own honesty and accountability – and if he wasn’t willing to give me at least that, he is in the wrong. No regrets!”

And it seems next week, we will get more ugliness from Bentley. Here’s to hoping Ashley sees the light sooner than later.

On the debut episode tonight, Ashley opens up to host Chris Harrison about her insecurities when she reveals her fear that the men will be disappointed when they learn she is the Bachelorette. Ashley also reveals she is already familiar with one of the contestants – Bentley Williams – whom a former “Bachelor” cast member has warned her is there for the wrong reasons.

And now that filming is complete, the important question is did Ashley find love? “All those questions are things you’ll have to tune in to find out,” was Ashley’s coy reply during a conference call with the press last week. “I will say I’m happy with the way things turned out with me, but you’ll have to tune in and see the rollercoaster,” she added.

Ashley also reveals the entire process was more difficult than she expected. “Going into it, I knew I would have a whole other set of hard times but I didn’t expect it to be as difficult as it was. I definitely learned a lot about myself. I guess I prefer to be on this side but it was not easy at times, that’s for sure,” she said.

As for her ex Brad, Ashley makes it clear she has definitely moved on from him. “I think Brad is a great guy but we both needed different things in our life,” said Ashley.  She continued, “And especially after meeting all these men, I realized how Brad wasn’t the best fit for me and I wasn’t the best fit for Brad.”

The Bachelorette premieres tonight at 9/8c before moving to its regular timeslot of 8/7c.

TELL US – ARE YOU EXCITED ABOUT THE NEW SEASON OF THE BACHELORETTE?

UPDATE – A preview commercial for the new season is below.

Former Bachelorette star Ali Fedotowsky is recovering following a kayak accident on Sunday that landed her in the hospital.

According to PEOPLE, both Ali and her fiance Roberto Martinez (yes they are still shockingly together) were both involved in the mishap. “Ali and Roberto had a little mishap when their kayak capsized this weekend,” her rep confirms. “Ali was taken to the hospital and had five staples put in her head.”

Meanwhile, Ali tweeted about the accident. “Made it out of the ER w/staples in my head & a little less hair after falling out of a kayak. Scary stuff. Wearing a helmet next time,” she wrote later adding that she was more concerned with her mane “I think I freaked out more when the doctor cut my hair rather than when he put staples into my head. Lol. Very thankful to be ok.”

As for Roberto, he is fine with Ali’s rep crediting him for keeping “her calm” and taking “great care of her.” Ali is said to be “doing fine” as well.

PEOPLE also adds that Ali is currently planning her wedding to Roberto. The two have been together for close to a year, equivalent to about a decade in Bachelor years.

And speaking of the Bachelor, weeks after it was reported that Brad Womack was house hunting in Texas and wanted his fiance Emily Maynard to move in with him, a new report is now stating the two have broken up again and this time for good.

According to the Rumorfix, Brad and Emily are done and the break-up occurred early last week. The reason for the break-up? “Emily couldn’t put up with his little temper and all the fighting,” says a source. Brad’s ex-girlfriend Laurel Kagay had accused him of having a volatile temper and repeatedly breaking up with her only to get back together days later.

“They always were pretty on-again-off-again, but this time it’s a done deal,” the insider says. Adding more fuel to the fire is the fact that the couple hasn’t been photographed together since March 27.

The Bachelor producers are reportedly aware of the split and are now trying to come up with a plan for damage control. We’re guessing a ratings bonanza via a break-up sit down special with the two is in the works.
