Monica Spannbauer Not Bisexual As Portrayed on The Bachelor According to Stepmother
Does anyone ever *like* how contestants are portrayed on The Bachelor? Yesterday, one of Jenna Burke’s employers told Wetpaint Entertainment the NYC blogger is nothing like the way she was shown on the Season 16 premiere.
Well, ditto for Jenna’s nemesis, Monica Spannbauer. Monica’s stepmother, Sherry Ekberg, told Star Magazine (viaRadar Online) that Monica is not gay or bisexual, but she may have been drunk (get in line!) on all the booze in the mansion and that could’ve been why we saw her getting all flirty with Blakeley Shea.
Sherry told Star that show’s producers “really like to keep [the contestants] intoxicated, so anything can happen at that point ... they keep them a little looped up.” In stepmom’s view, "They ... portrayed her as something she’s not. Sometimes they’ll do anything they can for the publicity — that’s probably the only reason it’s on the show.”
A close friend also told Star of Monica, “I’ve never seen any evidence that she’s gay or bisexual. She probably laughed the whole thing off. Nothing embarrasses her and she’s very comfortable with her sexuality.”
That’s good news, anyway! You need a high tolerance for embarrassment on this show.
