Laurel Kagay: I am Not Wes Hayden's Girlfriend!

by at . Comments

Austin, Tex., resident Laurel Kagay was just minding her own business and watching The Bachelorette Monday. Then suddenly, her name was mentioned.

In a hilariously staged return, ousted suitor Jake Pavelka came back to tell Jillian Harris that Wes Hayden, a remaining contender, had a girlfriend.

Her name is Laurel, Jake told Jillian and millions of viewers. Wes denied he is dating her. Jake ratted him out anyway. Laurel Kagay sat in shock at home.

“I was like, ‘What?’” Laurel told People in an interview today. “There was this pause before he said my name - and then he said it quite a few times.”

Laurel Kagay, owner of Peach Body Boutique in Austin, would like to clear the air on this topic, which has dominated the contrived Bachelorette for weeks.

She dated Wes Hayden for three years, but they are broken up, and have been for quite a while now. The two became strictly friends a year ago, she said.

“I’m absolutely not with Wes, nor would I be with Wes if he were going on a show to be with another girl,” she says. “That’s absolutely crazy.”

So how did Jake Pavelka get things mixed up?

“I think he was paid by the producers to come on the show and confront Wes definitely upset about not being on the show anymore,” Laurel theorized.

Wes Hayden, Jillian Harris

Laurel Kagay insists that she and Wes Hayden - who has caught considerable flak for romancing Jillian Harris while supposedly dating Laurel - are not an item.

“And I think Wes did say something about his ex-girlfriend. Maybe he said he still cares about me or whatever. Maybe Jake blew that into something else.”

However, Laurel Kagay admits, “We are really good friends and we do go out to lunch together, so I could see how people could think we’re together.”

Oddly enough, Laurel is also linked to another famous name in The Bachelor franchise - Brad Womack, the Texan who chose no one on his season finale.

Laurel Kagay has also dated Collin Evans, who was briefly a contender on The Bachelorette’s third season with Jen Schefft. Sounds like she has a type!

As for Wes Hayden, who The Bachelorette has presented as the ultimate bad boy, Laurel says, “They have not shown Wes’ real personality at all. He’s so funny. When we were together, we were always laughing and having fun."

"I never worried about him cheating on me.”

“She seems to have fun and has a good personality,” Laurel says of Jillian Harris, “and he’s really fun and funny. Too bad all this craziness had to go down.”


uhh. This article is complete fluff. Way to take her side. Wes admitted it on tonight's show. Plus, she looks like a tramp.


Wes and Laurel are both Douche Bags, and how stupid do texans think the rest of the world is? They are both in on this and ABC should be ashamed. I really have no desire to watch the rest of the series.


Wes his band I think he better try a little harder. They will not make it that far! They stink! To twangy! He just wanted to see if someone would give him a record deal! NOT! Way to burn your bridge Wes...


If she is Wes's girlfriend then she gets around because she was with Brad from the Bachelor a few years ago. She has gotten so much PR and she has never been on the show! Gesh! All I have to say is what a _ _ _ _!


Amazing how many gullible girls there are. You all are thinking exactly like the producers want you to they think they are so smart. The producers could make you think that Santa is a pervert and you would all jump on the wagon and bash him too. I know Wes, and he is not the player he is portrayed to be. I wish him the best. As for Jillian...she appears to have a lot going on for her....why is she looking for love on'll never last.


BOY she gets around


Wes.....I have been a country music fan for many years UNTIL I SAW YOUR PUNK-ASS on Teleivision last night and the way you lied to that girl's face over and over again. What a SHIT-EATER you are and the very scum that Country Musiic does not need. What a little must lie to everyone, cheat on the whore of girllfriend (Laurel Kagay) you claim to have and.......your Mother and sister's are the biggest liar's and absolute trash of Texas for their part in this queer little scam you pulled on a sweet little innocent girl looking for a nice guy. What a TEXAS SIZED DICKWEED YOU TURNED OUT TO BE.......ALL OF TEXAS IS ASHAMED OF YOU..ALSO>>>>>YOUR MUSIC SUCKS AND GOOD LUCK PLAYING THOSE SANDWICH SHOPS YOUR CALL GIGS. HA HA


Have you maybe thought he invented this 'girlfriend' in case he was kicked off the show? He certainly looked apprehensive when he was waiting for that last rose. Might have been the old 'save face' technique. Especially since Laurel is denying everything.


It's time for every woman and every sensible man to boycott
this lowlife, lying sleazebucket's album and concert career.
(His concert schedule is posted on his myspace page - just google wes hayden band) Whether he had a girlfriend at that moment or not, his comments about rushing home to have lots of sex and about being there solely to promote album sales under false pretenses tell the world that he is a narcissitic, user jerk, and this behavior should not be rewarded. Ditto for his manager, whose not so bright idea this farce might have been. Waht goes around comes around, guys.

Avatar for Wes, he is delusional if he thinks he's gonna sell albums after showing his true colours in that show. I will never support anyone with questionable character and a complete douche. as for Wes's family -- way to go for raising a snake! you must be very proud of Wessssssss....
