Benoit Beausejour-Savard Reacts To Jordan Kimball And Jenna Cooper’s Split; ‘Bachelor’ Exec Fuels Speculation That Jordan Is Next Bachelor

 

Benoit Beausejour-Savard has reacted to the shocking news that Jordan Kimball has decided to end his engagement to Jenna Cooper after damning texts supposedly from her were publicly released. Whose side is Benoit on?

On the Bachelor in Paradise reunion show that aired on Tuesday night, viewers saw Jordan and Jenna continue to be the loved up couple they were while filming Paradise. Not only that, they also saw a short clip of Jordan visiting Jenna in her home, where they continued talking about their future children. Also, Jordan announced their wedding date and asked host Chris Harrison to officiate their wedding, which Chris agreed to do without hesitation. Yet just prior to the reunion show airing, Reality Steve published texts that Jenna supposedly sent to her lover in which she declared that her relationship with Jordan was fake, that she’s doing the relationship for money, that she doesn’t even like Jordan, that she’s better than him, and that she’ll break up with him soon. Jenna even supposedly told this man, in graphic terms, how she was going to perform oral sex on him.

While Jenna has continued to deny the texts, Jordan has come out saying that he believes them to be true and that he has decided to end the relationship.

To think, to feel, to fall. These emotions interact with experiences and people, when you find a person you think about them, you feel when they feel and sometimes you fall. When you’re in love with even the experiences you’ve had with them it’s something to respect. Being careless with someone that you give your heart to and reach milestones with isn’t sensible no matter what the terms may be. I have not had an easy life and having struggles allows me to grab onto tough times and discard them from my path. I deal with unreasonable circumstances reasonably and have come to terms with a decision to remove myself from the relationship, it breaks my heart to think, feel and fall for this. It’s dropped me. Fumbling emotions and being understanding is not easy. I’ll be taking time to pursue my inner peace and she will always have me to talk to, if you’ve reached out to me, allow me time. Thank you to those that have.

As viewers saw on Paradise, Benoit pursued Jenna, much to the chagrin of Jordan. Benoit and Jenna enjoyed a great date and he was hopeful that she would choose him over Jordan. Jordan, fighting for Jenna, exchanged some heated words with Benoit. On the reunion show, Benoit and Jordan continued their fighting. Benoit criticized how Jordan talked about women while Jordan snidely pointed out that he won Jenna and that Benoit doesn’t have a woman. At one point, Jordan even brought up Benoit’s ex-fiancee Clare Crawley, which prompted Benoit to furiously declare that Clare’s a great woman and to warn Jordan to never bring her up again.

Yet Benoit Beausejour-Savard has now put aside their differences . In response to Jordan’s Instagram post about his split from Jenna, Benoit gave Jordan his sympathy. Benoit admitted that he’s “shocked” about what happened and told Jordan to stay the strong guy that he knows.

“benoitbeausejour: From the bottom of my heart and even though things were pretty rocky between us, I’m sorry about what happened to you man. I’m shocked about this but i cannot even imagine what you are going through. I feel for you. Stay the strong guy that I know 💪🏼”
Amid the shocking development that Jenna Cooper might have duped everyone all along, many viewers have called for Jordan Kimball to be the next Bachelor star. Of course, the franchise has already declared Colton Underwood as its next star. But could Jordan share the spotlight with Colton? After all, there was one season that started off with two Bachelorettes: Kaitlyn Bristowe and Britt Nelson. Or could they actually do a last minute switcheroo?
On Wednesday, Bachelor creator and producer Mike Fleiss sent fans in a tizzy with these texts:

This Is What Tia Booth Seemingly Has To Say About Bekah Martinez Slamming Her And Colton Underwood

What does Tia Booth have to say about Bekah Martinez publicly accusing her and Colton Underwood of deceiving Becca Kufrin? Apparently, Tia thinks that Bekah accused her without any good reason and that people shouldn’t believe what someone from “the sidelines” has to say.

While Tia and Colton was off filming Bachelor in Paradise, Bekah posted several tweets that accused Tia and Colton of lying to Becca. Remember how on The Bachelorette, Tia and Colton told Becca that despite having gone on a date prior to the show filming, they had no romantic feelings for one another? Tia told Becca that she was fine with her dating Colton. Colton reassured Becca that he was there for her and not because he thought Tia was going to be the Bachelorette. Yet according to Bekah, Tia and Colton planned all along to get back together on Bachelor in Paradise. Bekah later apologized for putting Tia and Colton on blast but maintained that her opinion is justified.

Now that filming for Bachelor in Paradise season 5 has just finished, Tia is back in the real world and surely seen for her own eyes what Bekah wrote about her. Tia immediately put up some telling posts. In one, she said that “the average dog is a nicer person than the average person.”

In another, she cautioned people to not believe everything they see on the Internet, “especially from those screaming from the sidelines.”

On Twitter, Tia pointedly wrote that the “the level at which people can fabricate s**t with little to no info is even more impressive.”

For what it’s worth, Bekah is now approving of Colton. She actually just wrote for a Bustle opinion piece that she thinks that Colton actually didn’t have an ulterior motive in pursuing Becca.

“Colton got the only one-on-one this week, and I was pleasantly surprised with how it went. Colton seems genuinely into Becca, and I’m beginning to believe that he’s genuinely here for her and not because he believed Tia would be the Bachelorette. I’m glad that their conversations are no longer lingering on that whole situation, and they truly seem to be developing a meaningful relationship.”

What does Bachelorette Becca think of the drama between her two friends? She sent out a tweet reminding Bekah that queens should support queens.

summer solstice has me feelin’ some type of way

A post shared by BEKAH MARTINEZ (@whats_ur_sign) on

As for whether viewers will see another showdown between Bekah Martinez and Tia Booth and Bekah questioning Colton Underwood on Bachelor in Paradise, the answer may be no. Shockingly, when the initial cast for season 5 was announced, Bekah wasn’t on the list. Obviously, Colton wasn’t included since he’s still in the running for Becca Kufrin on the current The Bachelorette episodes. Perhaps Bekah, who has so far stayed silent on her BIP appearance, will be a surprise late comer?

 

Becca Kufrin Chimes In On Beka Martinez’s Twitter Feud With Raven Gates Over Tia Booth And Colton Underwood

What does Becca Kufrin think of the Twitter spat that happened between Bekah Martinez and Raven Gates over the weekend after Bekah publicly accused Tia Booth and Colton Underwood of playing Becca? Apparently, Becca thinks that it was all unnecessary and that rather than fighting, Bekah and Tia should be supporting one another.

 

[WARNING POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERT]

 

On Tuesday, Bekah posted a series of tweets that apologized for putting Tia and Colton on blast and then getting into an argument with Raven after Raven stood up for Tia. If you missed the drama, basically Bachelor in Paradise season 5 is currently filming in Mexico. Two people there are Tia and Colton. After Bekah saw a photo of Tia and Colton enjoying a date on Paradise, she accused the two of pretending to not be into one another on Becca’s season of Bachelorette when all along they were planning to later get together on Paradise.

There’s certainly no love lost between Bekah and Tia. Bekah, as you may, recall cried and lashed out at Tia after learning that Tia told Arie Luyendyk Jr. on The Bachelor that she thinks that Bekah is too young for him. Immediately after Bekah posted her tweet, Tia’s friend, Raven, put Bekah on blast for “talking s**t,” which in turn led to Bekah and Raven slamming one another on Twitter. It got so bad that Raven eventually blocked Bekah.

Look here and here for the tweet-by-tweet of the drama.

After Bekah tweeted her apology for how she went about the matter, she admitted that it’s sometimes a struggle to balance out her public relations side and her real housewives side. Becca told her to “go happy medium” and “channel [her] Ru’s Drag Race side,” which means “queens supporting queens,” unless someone crosses the line then it’s time to “read” someone.

While Becca Kufrin wants everyone to be to civil with one another and Bekah Martinez has apologized, it’s not clear if she has apologized directly and personally to Tia Booth and Raven Gates. Raven has yet to comment on Bekah’s public apology. After her apology, Bekah posted another tweet that again accused Tia and Colton of not being innocent.

What’s gonna happen when Tia leaves Paradise, with or without Colton Underwood, and learns what Bekah said about her? Something tells me the peace won’t last long!

 

Lesley Murphy Shades Ex Dean Unglert By Comparing Him To Becca Kufrin Contestant Jordan Kimball

The Bachelor and Bachelor Winter Games alum Lesley Murphy took a dig at her ex Dean Unglert while watching the premiere of Becca Kufrin’s Bachelorette season last Monday night. Among Becca’s suitors, one contestant who stood out, for all of the wrong reasons many would day, was 26-year-old male model Jordan Kimball. Jordan hilariously came across as narcissistic, vain and delusional, with a complete lack of self-awareness.

Lesley apparently believes that those qualities perfectly describe Dean. In a scathing tweet, Lesley likened Jordan to Dean.

As you probably remember, Dean was one of the final four on Rachel Lindsay’s Bachelorette season. On that season, he came across as a vulnerable, genuine and sincere young man with a painful family story. Yet when he appeared later on the spin-off Bachelor in Paradise, he quickly became the summer’s villain due to his pursuit of both Kristina Schulman and Danielle Lombard. He refused to choose between the two women, choosing instead to keep things open with both. Obviously, that didn’t sit well with Kristina, Danielle or Bachelor Nation and so Dean ultimately found himself not only single but on on viewers’ s**t list.

But when Bachelor Winter Games came along early this year, Dean redeemed himself by quickly getting into a relationship with Lesley. When Lesley brought up her concerns to Dean about his “player” reputation and what happened with Kristina and Danielle, Dean assured her that he was ready and willing to be in a committed relationship with her. On the finale show, Dean even got down on one knee and presented Lesley with a key to his place.

Yet the romance quickly fizzled. In April, Lesley confirmed that she and Dean broke up and in her statement to People, made it pretty clear that they broke up because Dean wasn’t willing to commit to her.

“I know it’s imperative to find someone who chooses us and acknowledges our many layers, who can be open and vulnerable, and most importantly, who is ready. To meet someone and be met. To be chosen and to choose. To love and to be loved. This is everything. All we need is that same energy reciprocated, and despite how open and loving you attempt to be, people can only meet you as deeply as they’ve met themselves. Don’t be afraid to be the one that loved the most and give everything you had, because you’ve got to find people who love like you do and who are ready.  Out with the old, in with the TRUE. It was a long winter, and I’m excited for a new season. Let the spring cleaning commence. I’m ready.”

So what do you think? Is Dean Unglert realy as bad as Jordan Kimball? Was Lesley Murphy just a bit too savage with her tweet?

Lauren Burnham Feels ‘Bullied’ By Reporter Who Brought Up What Becca Kufrin Said About Her

Just hours prior to the premiere of Becca Kufrin’s The Bachelorette season, Lauren Burnham caused a bit of stir on social media. How so? Lauren sent a tweet about the GQ feature that profiled her and Arie Luyendyk Jr. Apparently, Lauren feels as if she was “bullied” by the reporter and that the reporter “crossed a line.”

As everyone knows, Arie broke off his engagement with Becca in order to go back to Lauren in front of The Bachelor cameras, leaving Becca to cry pitifully on the couch and then the bathroom. Arie then proposed to Lauren on the After the Final Rose finale and watched as Becca was announced as the next Bachelorette. For the GQ profile, the reporter spent a lot of time with Arie and Lauren in hopes of figuring out if they’re really as bad as they were portrayed on the show or if they are simply people who were edited badly and misled by the show’s producers.

The interview between the reporter and the couple, which took place in Arie’s hometown and Lauren’s new home of Phoenix, seemed to go really well. She spent alone time with both Arie and Lauren as well as with both of them together. She gave her opinion that Arie seems like a really nice guy who is completely trusting of people. She wrote that Arie conveyed to her that he is simply a somewhat dorky guy who is actually uncomfortable with all of the fame, who genuinely made a mistake with Becca and who truly loves Lauren. As for Lauren, the reporter wrote that contrary to how the show portrayed her, she actually does have a personality. According to Arie and Lauren, she was edited to make it seem as if she doesn’t have a personality and can’t hold a conversation. There was also the fact that Lauren simply isn’t comfortable in front of cameras.

Here’s where things went wrong. The reporter, during a solo interview with Lauren, asked her about what Becca had said about her, that she “would challenge [Arie] a lot more” than Lauren and that she, unlike Lauren, would “really want an equal partnership.” The reporter bringing this fact up apparently really upset Lauren, which then really upset Arie. Check out the following excerpt from the GQ article:

I was driving back to my Airbnb from Arie’s condo when I get a text from him. I’ve just interviewed Lauren one-on-one, and it was a difficult conversation. I asked her about what it was like when Arie broke up with her (“I was just really confused”), her family’s reaction to her taking him back (“My dad was a little concerned [at first] about him changing his mind again”), and whether she was hurt that he’d initially proposed to someone else (“People make mistakes, and he said he would spend the rest of his life making it up to me”). I also asked her about Becca’s comment on the finale that she “would challenge him a lot more” than Lauren and that Becca—unlike Lauren—would “really want an equal partnership.”

She and Arie didn’t watch the finale, so this was the first she’d heard of the comment.

“It makes me feel a little upset that people don’t think that I would be an equal partner with Arie,” Lauren tells me. She owned her own business—a home staging company with her mom—and says she was the top sales representative at another company. Her dad was in the Navy, and she moved all around the country, making friends wherever she went. “I’m a very strong independent woman,” she says. “Just because I had a little bit of a breakdown on the show, because I wasn’t great in that environment, doesn’t mean I’m not a strong person.” As we wrapped up our interview, I could tell she was unsettled by the comment. We’d all planned to meet up at a karting track later that evening, so we hugged goodbye and I headed back to my Airbnb to change.

Then I got a text from Arie.

“I don’t know how the conversation went on your end but Lauren is really upset,” Arie wrote. “I agreed to do this because I believed it would be positive and shed light on who I am [and] in no way did I want to make Lauren upset. I think our interview is done.”

In subsequent texts, he told me our time together felt like “a tabloid interview,” and that he would have ABC reach out to my editor. I’ve come to really like Arie over my two days eating and house hunting with him in Scottsdale, so his unceremonious about-face catches me off-guard. He eventually refused to participate further in the story, canceling a planned photoshoot. Suffice it to say I did not receive a rose.

So was Lauren Burnham “bullied” by the reporter bringing up what Becca Kufrin had said about her? Was Arie Luyendyk Jr. right in immediately taking Lauren’s side and treating the reporter in such a way? Lauren’s tweet about being “bullied” received mostly negative responses, with most people telling her that she wasn’t bullied and that the reporter was just doing her job. Some even accused her of trying to steal Becca’s thunder as the new Bachelorette by sending such a tweet the day of her season premiere. What do you think?
