Uh oh! Josh Murray is feeling the full wrath of ex Andi Dorfman’s poison pen memoir material about him, and it’s about to torpedo the ‘Bachelor in Paradise’ contestant’s relationship with Amanda Stanton. You have to see his tormented reaction when she revisits Andi’s cruel tales about him.
“Like, you just had a book written about you, and you say that it’s all lies,” Amanda says through tears as Josh Murray talks over her saying, “Oh God, you’re going to give her more press?” in the Aug. 29 episode of Bachelor in Paradise. Amanda Stanton, 26, just can’t seem to get away from his ex Andi Dorfman, 29, who claims she was “trapped” in a relationship with an “emotionally abusive” Josh among other horrible things. This totally sets off the 32-year-old financier.
“This is SO frustrating,” Josh replies. clearly angry and frustrated that he’s yet again having to defend himself to a woman about Andi’s accusations. Even worse, he feels like every time the stories about him from her tell-all, “It’s Not Okay: Turning Heartbreak into Happily Never After,” it just makes Andi have power over him.
“To believe in that stuff is like looking in a gossip magazine and believing that. It’s absolutely ludicrous. And for her to even get attention right here by this, this is what she wants anyways,” Josh continues. But it’s not enough for Amanda, who says maybe he should have picked a better time to come on the show than in the aftermath of Andi’s accusations. What’s worse, he came on the show to help escape sadness at home with a sick pet.
“A good time for what?” he asks her when she tells him she thinks he could have picked a better time to come on the show. “The last six months I haven’t done anything because my dog’s been battling cancer and I’ve been going through chemo every single day with her.” Poor Josh! A dying dog and now women that don’t trust him because of things an ex said about him? This guy just can’t catch a break!
Luckily, Amanda believed him and apologized for questioning him, even though during the course of the season, four different people have told her that Josh is a jerk and to be wary of him. For now though, it looks like Josh has Amanda wrapped around his finger.
HollywoodLifers, do you think Amanda will finally see the light about Josh?
