Desiree Hartsock was so jaded by the James Case saga that she wanted to leave The Bachelorette. But does she really end up with no one, as reported?
The Bachelorette spoilers shed light on that, but regardless of how accurate those are, Desiree took it hard when James' shadiness was exposed.
As a girl who made a terrible rap video about the "right reasons" for being on the show, The Bachelorette star found it to be a tough pill to swallow.
After James allegedly implied to his co-stars that he saw his "journey" as a stepping stone to becoming The Bachelor next January, Des was hurt.
This followed Bryden Vukasin abruptly leaving after flying all the way to Germany, and Des learning that Ben Scott totes had ulterior motives too.
Reports even suggest she almost abandoned the show after this, or that it contributed to her picking no one, depending on what or who you believe.
"There were several moments where she said 'I want to go home,'" a show insider revealed of Des' mindset. "She thought 'What else is going to happen?'"
According to the source, Desiree went so far as to have "multiple conversations with producers about going home. There were a lot of tears behind the scenes."
"It got very emotional and real. This was not an easy process. What you didn’t seen on camera was how much she really struggled with letting James go."
The insider tells Hollywood Life that "James completely sabotaged himself, but Desiree was very discouraged ... she wondered if anyone was there for her."
Who is there for Des? And does it work out in the end?
