We've heard from Brad Womack earlier. Now it's time to hear what DeAnna Pappas - one of the two women he spurned on The Bachelor - has to say.
Our friends at BuddyTV sat down with DeAnna Pappas for an exclusive. She dishes some pretty good dirt on Brad Womack, fellow rejected finalist Jenni Croft, and the rest of the girls on the show. Here are some excerpts ...
Question: Did you watch the finale? Or did you decide to skip it?
DeAnna Pappas: It was kind of hard for me to watch, but I watched it.
Question: Did you have any sympathetic feelings toward Jenni Croft?
DeAnna Pappas: Of course. Jenni is a great person. She has a big heart. And to see her standing there smiling, I mean, I don't feel like she had any clue that he wasn't going to pick her, and my heart just went out to her.
DeAnna Pappas and Brad Womack: Almost meant to be.
Question: They mentioned very briefly on that after the final rose special, that your dad was flown out for the engagement. What happened?
DeAnna Pappas: When I came back to my apartment the day after the final rose, my dad was there. He was just as confused as I was because he had no idea. He just knew that I didn't get chosen after he was already there.
Question: Now how long into the process did you really start to think that things could be serious with Brad Womack?
DeAnna Pappas: I knew from the first moment that I sat down and talked to Brad that I had a very strong connection with him. I truly felt like I was meant to be with this person. But it wasn't until he went to my hometown and Brad got to meet my family, that I realized I was actually falling in love with this person.
Question: Have you guys had any contact since?
DeAnna Pappas: I have had contact with Brad. Yes.
Question: There's a lot of rumors going around as to why he pick either of you. Do you, at this point, have any idea as to why he opted out?
DeAnna Pappas: I do have an idea, and I don't believe any of the rumors. I don't listen to them because I know that Brad is a very genuine person. He is a great person and one of the most amazing men that I've ever met. I truly believe that in this experience he got completely confused. He didn't know what was real and what wasn't real, and I'm not sure that he even knows today.
