Renee Oteri is Pregnant

Us Weekly reports that Renee Oteri, who competed for Juan Pablo Galavis and made it to the final four on The Bachelor season 18, is three months pregnant with husband Bracy Maynard. “It’s so weird because it’s been nine years since I’ve been pregnant and I’ve had almost no symptoms. I’ve just been a little tired,” said the reality star, who already has a nine-year-old son from a previous relationship.

“I’ve been craving lots of Ramen noodles, the cheap ones! It’s so bad, I’ve also been really into pressed juices,” she added. “I want to focus on being healthy and not getting lazy so I’ve been doing lots of Kale, spinach, everything green.”

AshLee Frazier and Graham Bunn Rumored to Be Dating

AshLee Frazier, best known for making the final three on Sean Lowe‘s season of The Bachelor, is rumored to have dated Graham Bunn on Bachelor in Paradise. According to Wetpaint’s source, “AshLee had her eye on Graham way before they went on the show. One of her first moments on the show is staking her claim on him when Clare Crawley tries to ask him out.”

“She was all about him, the whole time. They definitely made it through most of the show, but in the end, he dumped her rather than go to the Fantasy Suite with her and keep things going,” another source added.

Frazier and Bunn reportedly tried to make the relationship work even after their stint on Bachelor in Paradise though ended up parting ways. 

“They both kind of obsessed about each other for a while, asking their friends in common what they thought. Graham felt really bad about what happened and still had feelings for AshLee,” another source revealed. “She wanted to make it work, and was really upset that she couldn’t win over people who would’ve pushed him toward her.”

Bunn, who competed for DeAnna Pappa’s love on the fourth season of The Bachelorette, is now being linked to former Bachelor contestant Michelle Money.

Marcus Grodd and Lacy Faddoul Rumored to Be Dating

Marcus Grodd, whom Andi Dorfman sent home during the hometown date episode of The Bachelorette season 10, has allegedly moved on to the arms of Lacy Faddoul, who competed for Juan Pablo Galavis on The Bachelorette season 18. Reality Steve claims that the couple fell in love on Bachelor Paradise, where Grodd allegedly asked Faddoul to marry him in the finale.

Contrary to this report, Grodd revealed in a recent conference call that his dating life has been non-existent. 

“Since the show I really have been focusing on work and getting back into the swing of things and going back on an actual daily routine,” Marcus reveals to RumorFix.”So my dating life has been non-existent just like it was before I went on the show, honestly.”

“After I got home from Andi, I really surrounded myself around my family and friends. It took a little bit of time to get over her and it’s still a continuing process, doing that,” he said. “Just like any relationship or breakup, it’s tough getting over that person, especially if you had such a strong connection or you actually love that person. So I just surround myself around family and friends, and I’m still in the process of getting over her. 

When asked whether he will be appearing on Bachelor in Paradise, Grodd wouldn’t confirm anything. However, it looks like doing another TV show doesn’t seem to be his priority. “I’m very happy with my career and where I am in life,” the sports medicine manager saod . “I have a passion here in Dallas and I’m living with it. And my pursuit is really with my business and my love of sports. I wouldn’t really want to do anything else.”

Brooks Forester Rumored to Join Bachelor in Paradise

Reality Steve has yet another revelation about Bachelor in Paradise and this time it involves Brooks Forester, who left  Desiree Hartsock devastated on The Bachelorette season 9. Forester will reportedly appear in Mexico in episode 5 to ask out contestant Jackie Parr, who was sent home by Sean Lowe during the dreaded two-on-one date with Tierra LiCausi on The Bachelor season 17.  However, the tables will turn as Parr will get her chance to do her own two-on-one date– resulting to Parr keeping Bachelorette season 9 contestant Zack Kalter over Forester.
