Bachelor Nation fans know and love Jade Roper. She was first introduced to us during Chris Soules’ season of The Bachelor. After she was let go during hometowns, Jade joined the Season 2 cast of Bachelor in Paradise.
In paradise, Jade met Tanner Tolbert, who had previously appeared on Kaitlyn Bristowe’s season of The Bachelorette. Jade and Tanner hit it off right away and were practically inseparable. During the season finale of BIP they got engaged. Since then, they’ve had three children. The couple recently moved from Colorado to Orange County, California, the home of the Real Housewives of Orange County. Could there be a crossover in the future?
According to an article in Us Weekly this Bachelor/Housewives crossover almost happened! “During an Instagram Q&A session on Thursday, December 2, a fan asked if [Jade] would ever agree to appear on the Bravo series.” She replied, “fun fact! I actually had a preliminary interview about a year and a half ago for RHOC!” However, she also shared that she, “didn’t get a second interview.”

No offense to Jade, but I get why she didn’t get a second interview. She’s too nice and relaxed to be dealing with Shannon Screams Beador, Gina Kirschenheiter, and Emily Simpson. Not to mention, I don’t see her vibing all that much with Heather Dubrow. However, I could see her getting along with Tamra Judge but it doesn’t seem like she’ll be coming back any time soon.
Jade and Tanner don’t need RHOC though because they have their hands full with their growing family. Jade would like to add one more to their family of five, but Tanner seems to be done. “I think I’m out,” he “told Us Weekly in May,” elaborating that he was planning on “going to get a vasectomy.” For Tanner, he’s “not saying never… [there’s a] 10 percent chance of having more [kids].”
For Jade, having more kids is, “just a wait and see type of thing.” She says, “I see one more in our family, but right now I’m so tired all the time with three littles and working, I couldn’t imagine adding pregnancy into the mix anytime soon.”
Whatever they decide to do, I’m glad to see this is one Bachelor couple that is going strong!
TELL US- WOULD YOU HAVE LIKED TO HAVE SEEN JADE ON RHOC? WOULD SHE GET ALONG WITH THE WOMEN OF THE OC? IS IT BETTER FOR HER AND TANNER THAT THEY DIDN’T JOIN THE HOUSEWIVES UNIVERSE?
