Is The Bachelor's final rose winner Whitney Bischoff jealous of Chris Soules and Witney Carson, her namesake and his partner on Dancing with the Stars?
That's the (obligatory) rumor going around lately. But is it legit?
A new report from Star (we know, we know) claims that Whitney (with an "h") has been hiding a tragic family history beneath that effervescent facade.
One that might prevent her from getting emotionally intimate with Chris Soules, and may exacerbate any jealousy issues caused by his turn on DWTS.
Whitney bonded so well with Chris Soules' family in part because she feels she had no parents of her own, having grown up in and out of this broken home.
She was all in from the start on The Bachelor, as fans saw over and over again, but Whitney still harbors trust issues, and they are coming to the surface.
Having lost her mother years ago (she passed away), and lacking any relationship with her father, this is a turning point for Bischoff. Says a source:
"It’s been hard for Whitney to really put her trust in a partner after what she experienced. I really hope and pray that Chris is as decent a man as he seems."
Certainly, Soules has not given Whitney any reason to distrust him, and just because he went on Dancing with the Stars doesn't mean he puts fame first.
It makes for good gossip, but probably nothing beyond that.
Recent predecessor Sean Lowe did the same thing following his stint on The Bachelor, then went on to marry Catherine Giudici as he said he would.
Do you think Chris and Whitney are destined for the altar? Or destined for a premature breakup like Andi Dorfman and Josh Murray of The Bachelorette?
