*Spoiler alert* If you don’t want to read Reality Steve’s Bachelorette finale spoilers, go tell us if we got this wrong.*

Times like this, we totally feel like we’re back in high school, trying to figure out which whispers by the lockers are legit and which are just exaggerated rumors. But hey — as long as the intel is juicy, we’re listening.

On Friday, Reality Steve said Britt Billmaier — the skinny chef from The Bachelor Season 15 who looks like Daryl Hannah in Splash — was dating Ashley Hebert’s eventual runner-up, hot winemaker Ben Flajnik. Steve said they would both deny it because Ashley’s finale won’t air until August 1, but they have been hanging out a lot and not just to exchange recipes.

Well, be that as it may, Britt is denying it on Twitter. Here’s what the lovely lass had to say later on Friday:

@BrittBillmaier: “Lots of lies floating about. I think Ben is a fantastic guy, but there is no validity to the rumors out there.”

So... Ben may still be single! Or he may be engaged to Ashley after all. Then again, maybe the two are dating. Who knows.
