Bachelorette’s Nick Viall Explains His Awkward Fantasy Suite Comment: “It Wasn’t Necessarily About the Sex” – But the newly-engaged Dorfman wasn’t ready to see him until the show, when he blurted out, “If you weren’t in love with me, I’m just not sure why, like, why you made love with me.” The Bachelorette star did not take the comments well, chiding Viall for his “below the belt” attack. So on Tuesday, July 29, Viall tried to explain his comments during a conference call. “I think she was very caught off guard by the question, and quite honestly, I was surprised it came out, but I think I was very much in the moment, and it was something that I felt was weighing on my mind,” he said. “It wasn’t necessarily about the sex, but just the level of intimacy about that night.” Viall also attributed his spontaneous question to how off-putting Dorfman’s demeanor was during “After the Final Rose.” “I was more taken aback by how cold she seemed even from when she first came out,” he said of Josh Murray’s fiancee. “It didn’t connect.” – Read more at US Magazine

She sleeps with someone else, and then doesn’t tell the guy about it. This is what America’s come to, this crap.” Bachelorette fan and fellow co-host Andrea Tantaros quickly chimed in, “Are you kidding me right now? Excuse me, Bob! You probably sleep with a different woman every night.” “I’m not on some Bachelor, Bachelorette,” he exclaimed. “Those in glass boudoirs, Beckel, those in glass boudoirs!” Tantaros replied. Beckel later apologized for using the word “slut” to describe “the woman who slept with two guys.” – Read more at US Magazine
