Tanner Tolbert “Scared” of Divorce From Jade Roper (VIDEO)
Divorce is usually far from most newlyweds’ minds — but not Tanner Tolbert.
EXCLUSIVE: Ready For a Jade & Tanner Spin-Off?!
It all comes up in tonight’s (December 2) episode of Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars.
In a sneak peek of the ep, we see Dr. Venus Nicolino kicking group therapy off by asking the reality star couples to open up about some of their biggest fears.
“I want you to walk through each one, and I want you to explain,” she requests.
Jade is up first and to say she’s nervous is an understatement.
“Right now, I’m really self-conscious,” she tells the WE tv cameras. “This is really vulnerable for me, for my comfort zone — this is a big leap.”
She’s not exaggerating, either. The Bachelor 2015 alum really opens up about her debilitating insecurities, telling the group her fear is that “I’m disgusting.”
Say what?! Have you looked in a mirror lately, girl?
When Dr. Nicolino asks why she feels disgusting, she replies, “Because I was told I was every day. Like, everything I do, I taught myself that.”
As we know from earlier in the season, the 29-year-old gal is referring to her contentious relationship with her mother, who said some not-so-nice things to her growing up.
“If Jade lets what happened in her childhood — things that her mother said to her — affect her, it’s going to affect her marriage,” co-star Karen Gravano notes.
The Mob Wives alum adds, “It’s just sad she views herself as something totally different than people view her.”
However, it would seem Jade’s hubby Tanner has an even more serious issue to deal with.
The former Bachelorette contestant starts off his turn by admitting, “I’m scared of getting a divorce — that’s half the reason why I shut you out.”
His concerns seem somewhat warranted, though, as he’s experienced divorce firsthand with his parents.
“In the back of my mind, it is scary that something could change for you down the road, because I saw that happen with my family,” he explains to his wife.
It also doesn’t help the way the couple got married so quickly after BIP.
He states, "Me and Jade did rush into a relationship, and we haven't had that time to go through everything together. That's probably my biggest fear."
