Andi Dorfman and Josh Murray of “The Bachelorette” are overjoyed about their engagement. The new couple is now free and out of hiding, and literally was shouting their happiness during a press call Tuesday afternoon. However, that joy has a small dark cloud hovering over them -- and that dark cloud is Nick Viall, the Season 10 runner-up.
During a press call, Murray responded to questions about his feelings regarding Viall and his comments about his intimate experience with Andi during “The Bachelorette.”
Josh said Nick’s words during the “After The Final Rose” special were “classless” and “disrespectful.”
“He’s of no concern to us,” Josh said, adding he actually didn’t hear Nick’s conversation with Andi because he was behind-the-scenes preparing for his appearance.
Fans will remember Nick was initially quiet during his sit down with Andi. However, the runner-up suffered from a serious case of “foot in mouth” when he called “The Bachelorette” star out for breaking his heart after sleeping with him.
“I’m not sure why you made love to me,” Nick said to Andi. His comment caused the starlet show visible shocked on stage.
Fortunately for Andi, Nick didn’t dive into specifics. However, “The Bachelorette” viewers immediately began to speculate Nick was referring to their “fantasy suite” date in which the two spent the night together without any cameras.
Andi called his comment “below the belt,” adding it was something private that should stay private. But Nick said it was one of the big reasons why he was so confused and hurt over their break up.
“That’s how you made me feel,” Nick continued. “I didn’t have any expectations of that night. But to me, that night was fiancé type of stuff. That meant so much to me and I told you that. It wasn’t -- It meant something. It meant the world to me. I’ve had to play that in my mind over and over.”
Nick told reporters during a press call he didn’t even get to say goodbye to Andi after the special cut to commercial. As to whether he was happy with how he handled the situation? Nick said he wished he had the opportunity to talk to her in private, and was caught off guard by her demeanor and how cold she seemed on stage.
