Ben Flajnik’s Season 16 ladies may have been rude and defensive when it came to Shawntel Newton arriving at their cocktail party — but Brad Womack’s gals have nothing but manners and love when it comes to their Season 15 cohort. From Season 7 Bachelorette Ashley Hebert to Season 8 Bachelorette (???) Emily Maynard, don’t miss the lovely girls’ words of encouragement.
Ali Fedotowsky: I absoutely love @Shawntel_Newton and it's really hard for me to see the girls me mean to her. #bachelor
Ashley Hebert: @Shawntel_Newton glad you went for it! Am so blown away by what went down. Speechless! Love you xo!
Ashley Spivey: Heart is breaking for Shawntel! I think Ben does want to keep her but he knows too many girls will walk out :/ anyone else?
Emily Maynard: Ill be the first to say that @Shawntel_Newton is one of the sweetest, kindest, most fun girls I know and anyone would be lucky to have her!
Marissa May: wish i could be there to hug @Shawntel_Newton! what's worse is her having to hear these horrible comments. glad Cristy & Lacey are there!
Jackie Gordon: Sad for the whole situation tonight. @Shawntel_Newton you look great tonight, chin up!! #TheBachelor
