Ashley now knows all the horrible stuff that Bentley said about her — but she’s not letting it bring her down!

Bachelorette Ashley Hebert had no clue that Bentley Williams was talking such crap about her as she fell for him during filming. But now Ashley’s finally heard all that Bentley had to say in private back then — and she still doesn’t regret letting the player get close to her heart.

“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,” Ashley writes in her personal People blog. “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!”

“I learn so much about these men from watching the episodes — the good, the bad and the ugly,” adds Ashley. “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.”

But while Ashley maintains that she has no regrets about Bentley, one guy — and one first date — left a better lasting impression!

“To this day, I will still say that my date with William [Holman] was the best first date I have ever been on,” Ashley admits. “At first glance, he is a handsome, charming, funny guy, but on the other hand, he has a lot of depth to him and has been through a lot. Our date was just that — a mixture of fun and depth.”

“On top of that, he actually was about to go through with the marriage — on the first date!” remembers Ashley. Ashley and William’s first date consisted of planning a wedding — selecting a cake, engagement ring, and even walking down the aisle. This was Ashley’s way of testing him to see if he was ready to commit to a relationship.

“I knew he was a keeper,” Ashley gushes!
