Golden Bachelor’s Susan Noles on Bradley Cooper’s Love: ‘I Was Shocked’

Recently two big Hollywood stars, Bradley Cooper and Eddie Murphy, admitted to being fans of reality television. Specifically, they’re both obsessed with The Golden Bachelor.

Last month, Murphy made headlines when he voiced his disappointment that Gerry Turner and Theresa Nist filed for divorce only three months after their wedding.

“I watched that sh*t,” the Beverly Hills Cop star said. “I was like, ‘This is so nice, they found love in the second part of [their] life. This is a nice show. Bravo!’ Then I find [out the] motherf*ckers broke up three months later. The same old sh*t.” Admit it, you read that in Eddie Murphy’s voice, “Heh-heh-heh.”

Breakout stars discuss fan reactions

Recently, two of The Golden Bachelor’s breakout stars spoke to Us Weekly about fan reaction to the show. Kathy Swarts and Susan Noles, who officiated Gerry and Theresa’s wedding, are adamant that the show’s message of love and hope still stands, despite the split.

“This show is about love,” Kathy said. “It’s about adventure, but it’s about finding love. I wish I had found love, [and] I know Susan wishes she had found love … [Overall], the premise is finding love.”

Susan couldn’t help bringing up her unexpected meeting with Cooper. Can you blame her?

“When Bradley Cooper said to me, ‘I am your biggest fan, I am a huge fan. I have so many questions for you,’ I was shocked,” the makeup artist recalled. “I loved every second of it. So people watch this show … So many young people come up to me. I [officiated] a wedding the other day, and I was surrounded by 20-some-year-olds. They’re like, ‘Oh, my God, I loved it when you said this or I loved it when you did that. Are you really friends with Kathy?’ Every generation of people watched.”

Kathy brought up a similar experience at her son’s wedding, which Susan also officiated. “At the afterparty, all these people came up to us,” Kathy said. “Young people saying, ‘You have changed our lives. We love your friendship. You’ve given us so much hope.’ To me, that’s … the highlight of the show … We are giving people hope and enjoying life and finding love.”

The Golden Bachelor is available for streaming on Hulu.
