In her personal video blog, Emily seems to feel that Ashley may have scared off the other guys by confessing her feelings for Bentley!
Bachelorette Ashley Hebert confessed to the other contestants about her feelings for Bentley Williams after she got the closure she needed from him during the June 27 episode in Hong Kong. But Ashley’s honesty backfired, causing the guys to grow upset and disappointed with her — to the point where Ryan “Mickey “McLean left. And now, Ashley’s former Bachelor cast-mate and friend Emily Maynard thinks that Ashley’s truthfulness was a bit too much!
“Unfortunately the guys at the cocktail party did not take so well to the news about Bentley,” Emily says in her personal video blog on Warner Bros Bachelor site. “I can’t say I blame them either. I definitely think Ashley’s heart was in the right place, just maybe she was a little too honest with how much she liked Bentley.”
Ashley maybe shouldn’t have relayed every detail about Bentley to the other guys. “That goes to show how open she is and she doesn’t want to keep any secrets from the guys,” explains Emily. “Just maybe she was a little bit too honest.”
But Emily is still happy that Ashley finally got to confront Bentley. “It started with Ashley finally, finally, finally getting the answers that she needed from Bentley,” she shares. “While it may not have been the answers that she wanted, I think that she finally realized that as much as he says that she’s not the one for him, that he is definitely not the one for her.”
“She’s made a mistake by not giving the other guys a fair chance,” adds Emily.
However once Ashley said goodbye to Bentley for good, her spirits clearly lifted. “It really showed going into her date with Lucas [Daniels],” notes Emily. “It really looked like she had a lot of fun and just a huge weight was lifted off of her shoulders. She made an effort to get to know him. Even though I’m not really seeing them together, I think that she had a good time. It was a great transition for her off of such an awful conversation with Bentley.”
And rumored winner J.P. Rosenbaum acted as Ashley’s knight in shining armor once again. “The date with J.P. was so sweet,” gushes Emily. “It just goes to show how much she likes him. She felt so comfortable, comfortable enough to confide in him about her conversation with Bentley. He took what could have been a really awful conversation and made it not so awful. It showed a lot of maturity on his part.”
“I’m excited to see how their relationship turns out for sure,” says Emily. “I think he’s definitely a front runner!”
BFFs — do you agree with Emily that Ashley was too honest with the other guys about Bentley.
