It’s been a tough season so far for Season 7 Bachelorette Ashley Hebert. She’s had to deal with Bentley Williams’ deception, while only viewers (and producers and editors...) knew the truth, which led to some wrath from the other men when they found out how strongly she felt about him. I’m sure we’re not the only ones who never want to hear the name “Bentley” come out of her mouth, ever again.
But at least she has an ally in Season 6 Bachelorette Ali Fedotowsky, who recently defended Ashley in a video interview with Chris Harrison. She, too, was chided by viewers for her seeming insecurities (not to mention her whining and baby talk...) during her love “journey.” She made some good arguments in Ashley’s favor and encouraged viewers to give her a break. And do you remember how nasty some fans were to Season 5 Bachelorette Jillian Harris? If you need a reminder, re-read one of her frustrated People magazine blogs from those tumultuous few months. Now, fans adore the single and sexy Extreme Makeover: Home Edition designer.
So how are you feeling about Ashley as we approach Episode 7? Are you annoyed with her insecurities? Are you empathizing with her as the victim of “bad boy” deceit? Are you just jealous ‘cause she’s still smooching on hot guys like JP and Ben F.? Will a happy ending wipe away all traces of the previous indiscretions? You tell us...
