Ashley also admits that she was naive to fall for Bentley’s games, even though she didn’t know what he was saying about her at the time!
The day that player Bentley Williams walked out on Bachelorette Ashley Hebert, he left her completely destroyed — to the point where she didn’t know if she could go on with the show. But Bentley comes back in episode five — and Ashley tells Jay Leno on The Tonight Show June 16 that she had to see the bad boy one more time so that she would be able to move on and fall in love with one of the other guys!
“He left me with an open door saying ‘…’” says Ashley. “And I reached a point where I really felt like in order for this to work for me, in order for me to move forward in some of these relationships, I really need to figure this out and I see him again.”
But when Ashley made the decision to see Bentley again on the show, she didn’t know at the time about all of the horrible things he’d been saying about her behind her back. “At this point I had no idea what he was saying,” she recalls. “I know now, but I didn’t know then.”
Now Ashley realizes that it was a mistake to keep Bentley in her heart. “Looking back on it now, I’m going to have to say yes,” she admits. “I think I was a little naive and I think I saw what I wanted to see.”
Ashley also adds that the reunion with Bentley “is not what [she] expected.”
