After the drama involving Brian's girlfriend, Bryden's voluntary exit and Ben's controversial behavior, Desiree Hartsock had to deal with yet another drama this week on The Bachelorette
. James, who initially came across as one of the good guys, quickly turned into a villain after several guys overheard him saying that he wants to become the next Bachelor. Not surprisingly, the tension and emotions hit the roof as Desiree found out about this, confronted James, and ultimately sent him home. Find out what host Chris Harrison, Season 6 Bachelorette
star Ali Fedotowksy and Desiree herself have to say about James:
"He makes me so angry... what truly bothers me about James is how he manipulated Desiree into thinking that something was wrong with her for questioning why he would be thinking about the possible future scenarios after the show. He said something like, 'There's nothing wrong with thinking about the future, right Desiree?' Then he basically forced her to agree with him. That's almost like saying, 'Really, Desiree? Only a crazy chick would think there was something wrong with thinking about the future. You're not a crazy chick right?' Grrrrr! Such a manipulator!"
"The only problem is when James talks to Des he seems sincere and sweet. It's when he's with the guys that he gets defensive and confrontational. It really is a bizarre situation and I look forward to sitting down with James and the guys to discuss this at the Men Tell All
. Like you, I'm a little torn on this situation and I think it's safe to say that Des is as well. Even though she let James go, I really don't think she had clarity on him or how she felt about all of it."
"I was extremely disappointed by what Drew told me. James seemed like a loving, caring and respectful man. I don't see what the men are like around each other in the house or when the cameras are off, so I had to take my time in making a decision about James. At this point James was pretty high on my list. I was thinking about meeting his family. I know his good side is so, so good... I had all intentions of sending James straight home, but his softness, emotions and demeanor got the best of me... Watching it back, I feel I was completely manipulated by him. He would put on a softer, caring persona around me, but then speak so harshly with the men. After a lot of thought, I decided that keeping James there would diminish my other relationships. It will be interesting to see what James has to say about himself at Men Tell All
. I know I will have some questions for him!"
Are you glad James is gone? Or will you actually miss him? What questions would you want him to answer at the Men Tell All?
