The shocking revelation sprung on Ali Fedotowsky on last night's The Bachelorette was unlike many of the contrived scenarios we've seen in recent seasons.
That's because, despite the obligatory melodrama, it appeared to be legitimate. Our girl was totally caught off guard - as was Justin when he got busted.
Below are excerpts from Ali's blog, which she writes for People each week after the ABC reality show airs. It's interesting to hear her reflect on the scandal.
As for who she picks among the five guys who received roses? She's not saying, but The Bachelorette spoilers we've compiled hint at an unexpected conclusion.
Anyway, here's what she says about last night's episode ...
"So let’s address the big pink elephant in the room and get it out of the way. First off, when Jessica called me, the first thing I said to her was 'Are you okay?'"
"I felt so bad for her. I only knew Justin for weeks; he betrayed her for years. No woman should ever let a man treat her with disrespect the way Justin did."
"The reason I didn’t look super upset on he phone is because I was not going to let him hurt me. I wouldn’t give Justin the satisfaction of thinking he could."
"I wanted to be strong - for me, for [Jessica Spillas], and for all the women and girls watching who have been betrayed by a man like this before."
"When I told Justin that he would regret this, I didn’t mean his lack of relationship with me. I meant that he would want a chance to explain himself."
"As you all saw, he didn’t do such a great job. I guess that is what happens when you’re caught in a lie. That’s all I really have to say about that."
