J.P. says it wasn’t easy to see fiancee Ashley with other men! ‘To see [Ashley] speak of another guy that way? It hurts!’ he confesses.
Bachelorette Ashley Hebert and her fiance J.P. Rosenbaum fell in love as they traveled the world filming the show. J.P. was able to put the fact that Ashley developed relationships with other men aside and get down on one knee. But as soon as the happy couple left Fiji and came back to U.S., J.P.’s jealousy proved to be a major hurdle, especially as he watched Ashley pine over bad boy Bentley Williams!
The show aired just 10 days after filming wrapped — and as J.P. watched his fiancee get close to other men, he grew more and more upset. “I tried to stay focused on the fact that I signed up for this,” J.P. tells People magazine. “But it stings.”
J.P. saw Ashley fall for player Bentley and then become distraught over Bentley’s departure. Ashley’s feelings for this other guy were like daggers to J.P.’s heart. ”To see her speak of another guy that way? It hurts,” he admits.
And while J.P. was battling intense jealousy, Ashley faced her own insecurities as people slammed her for falling for Bentley. J.P. put his own feelings aside and tried to comfort her. “I tried to tell her not to read things, but it’s impossible,” he says.
But thankfully Ashley and J.P. were able to move past these obstacles. Whenever J.P. got upset, Ashley would listen to him patiently. “She is totally sympathetic every time I want to vent about it,” J.P. shares.
And they figured out a way to work past their problems. “There’s so many things you could potentially argue about,” explains Ashley. “We’ve figured out how to talk through disagreements. We call them ‘show misunderstandings’ and move on.”
“Our relationship really started after we left the show,” continues Ashley. “The show made us stronger than if we’d met on the outside. I’ve never even looked back for a second on my decision.”
J.P. totally agrees with Ashley. “We’re more in love now than we were back in Fiji,” he reveals. “The hard part is over. It’s such an emotional and psychological test like nothing I’ve ever been through. Now there’s nothing but good things ahead. You make it through something like this together, you make it through anything.”
