Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay"s Family Grills One Charming Suitor While Rooting For An Underdog — Get The Recap HERE!

Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay's final three suitors have met her family!!

While many fans were still recovering from Miz Lindsay's decision to send home baby faced Dean, the powerhouse attorney was busy taking her relationships with her final beaus to the next level. How?? By bringing them home to meet her family, of course! Related: BIP's Amanda Stanton Has Found Love Again Now, normally, the bachelorette's family is flown to some exotic location to meet up with the lead and her remaining men. However, the ABC dating competition broke from tradition this time around as Rachel's sister was eight months pregnant at the time of filming and couldn't travel. Thus Peter, Bryan, and Eric packed their bags and flew to Dallas for some quality time with the Lindsays. Unsurprisingly, not EVERYONE made a great impression on Rachel's fam. So let's dig into the hometown visit! As Peter is the frontrunner, it only seemed right that the gap toothed cutie get the first meet and greet with the Lindsays. Peter was VVV eager to spend time with Rachel as he totally dropped the ball in articulating how he feels about her. While shopping for baby gifts for Rachel's sister, Peter gushed to the season 13 lead: "You do mean the world to me. I want you to have so much confidence going into this in us and in me, and know that you're introducing a good person who is here for you. And I am falling in love with you." And he's back in the lead, y'all! The twosome then made their way to Rachel's residence for a hangout with her mom Kathy, her aunt Connie, her uncle Jeff, her sister Constance, and Constance's husband Alex. The Lindsay patriarch was noticeably absent during the family meeting, but he IS a federal judge so he probably opted out of appearing on a trashy reality show. Anywho, Peter's respectful and honest nature won over the Lindsays, especially Kathy. During a chat about Peter's hesitation to propose at the end of all of this, Rachel's mom actually appreciated the businessman's decision to not ask for her blessing. Way to be sincere AF, bb! Eric was next on deck -- and SUPER nervous about meeting Rachel's family. Why?? Well, because it's been six or seven years since the personal trainer has met a girl's family. But before we get into his visit with the Lindsays, let's cut back to the drama at the hotel between Bryan and Peter. Related: Ben Higgins Isn't Ready To Kiss Someone Else! As they're the two frontrunners, it isn't shocking to see that Peter and Bryan have some tension between them. Upon learning that Peter didn't ask Kathy for her blessing to propose to Rachel, Bryan told the Wisconsin native that he'd be doing just that. Peter was rightfully annoyed by this "ballsy" move and candidly told Bryan: "What's awkward is having to sit here with her other boyfriend, knowing that her other boyfriend is home with her family right now. I don't want to be sitting here with you right now, I'm not going to lie." Preach, bro. But, enough of these two, back to Eric... Eric has shocked us all by landing in the final three and, after a rocky start, has become the underdog we're all rooting for. Now, the 29-year-old definitely raised a few eyebrows when he admitted that his longest relationship didn't even hit the year mark. Still, Eric's earnestness seemed to win everyone over and he even snagged Kathy's blessing to propose to Rachel. Awwww. On meeting Eric, momma Lindsay dished: "Today was good. I was pleasantly surprised again at Rachel's choice. I like the fact that Eric appears very honest, and has a desire to get married and raise a family. I can understand why this is going to be a tough decision for her. Eric is still in the game, folks! And for the moment we've been waiting for, Bryan met with the Lindsay clan. We knew the moment Bryan started spitting lines Rachel's protective family would start grilling him. We mean, like we said, the Lindsay patriarch is a FEDERAL JUDGE! Before Bryan was introduced to Rachel's loved ones though, the Miami native met with two of the bachelorette's gal pals. While it may've seemed like Rachel was all about Bryan since day one, the legal expert dished to her friends: "Let's just be real: I thought he was a douchebag. I really did. I was waiting for the charm to [wear] off and he was like: ‘Look, I'm not going to let you mess this up.' " Of course, this comment inspired Bryan to turn up the charm even more. The smooth talking went over well with Rachel's friends, but NOT with the Lindsays. In fact, there was serious tension between the chiropractor and the Lindsay crew from the get go. Kathy even questioned Bryan's loyalties to Rachel after learning about his (seemingly unhealthy) relationship with his mother. Kathy went as far as to force Bryan to admit on camera (TWICE) that he'd pick Rachel's side over his mother's in the instance that the women butted heads. We're sure this gave Bryan's mother a heart attack. The interrogation against Bryan upset Rachel a ton as she told the cameras: "I was very excited to introduce Bryan to my family, but I felt like my excitement wasn't reciprocated by my family. I'm irritated at this point. The energy is totally different than it was the other two days with Peter and Eric." Later, when revealing her love for Bryan to her mother, Kathy shared that she doesn't feel comfortable with this notion. Rachel's sister clearly felt the same way as she questioned Bryan's sincerity. Nonetheless, Bryan came to Dallas to get Rachel's mother's blessing and was NOT leaving the family sit down without it. Reluctantly, Kathy told Bryan: "Because I trust her judgment, you have my blessing to take this initial love. And just build on that." Awkward! After three VERY different visits with the Lindsays, the final suitors were whisked away to La Rioja, Spain. Eric landed the first overnight date and boy did it go over well. Rachel took Eric on helicopter ride around the region even though he hates heights, and it further proved that he'll do anything to win the bachelorette's heart. In typical Bachelorette fashion, the outing ended with some down time and a declaration of love. Related: Rachel Gushes About Her 'Hopeless Romantic' Fiancé! After dancing around the word "love" for awhile, Eric gushed to Rachel: "I don't know if you understand how much you challenge me emotionally, making me feel vulnerable and open — it feels amazing. Everything about this feels right. You embody everything I would want in a wife. Nothing else matters. I'm just here to say that I'm in love with you. I tried to run … but this is it. I'm here. I'm here for you. I'm just a happy man. I've never felt this way about a girl, ever. Rachel Lindsay, I love you." We're not crying, YOU ARE! Rachel rewarded Eric's openness with an invitation to the Fantasy Suite. He said yes, because, duh. Peter had the next overnight date and was taken to a local vineyard for some fun. Yet their date took a serious turn as, later on, Rachel laid into Peter for his reluctance to propose. After sharing that she doesn't believe that getting engaged means they have to rush into marriage, Rachel relayed: "I didn't come this far and put my life on hold and sacrifice everything I had to do this to just have a boyfriend at the end of it — that's not what I want." You tell 'em, girl! Peter wouldn't budge though as he noted that he believes "an engagement is marriage." He added: "I don't want you to give up on what you believe and what you need in your life. We talked about trying to find the common ground — I just don't know what that is with something that is so polar opposite. I don't know how to get through that." *GASP* Understandably, Peter's admission was "absolutely devastating" to Rachel. The reality TV starlet even concluded to the cameras: "I don't know what to do. I was hopeful for what Peter and I could be, and then just like that, I didn't see it. Tonight, for the first time ever, I'm thinking Peter and I might not work out." Will Peter get the boot? Could Eric actually win this thing? We'll just have to wait and see! Don't forget, The Bachelorette airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET on ABC......»»

Luann de Lesseps Tries To Distract From Her Slapping Drama By Bragging About The "Makeup Sex" She & Tom D"Agostino Are Having!

Luann de Lesseps isn't worried about her marriage one bit! As we previously shared, the Countess and her husband, Tom D'Agostino, made headlines earlier this week after it was reported that the Real Housewives Of New York star slapped her man during an argument at Le Bilboquet restaurant in Manhattan. Yikes! Related: RHOC Star Vicki Gunvalson Apologizes [...] Luann de Lesseps isn't worried about her marriage one bit! As we previously shared, the Countess and her husband, Tom D'Agostino, made headlines earlier this week after it was reported that the Real Housewives Of New York star slapped her man during an argument at Le Bilboquet restaurant in Manhattan. Yikes! Related: RHOC Star Vicki Gunvalson Apologizes To Shannon Beador Nonetheless, the Bravolebrity is moving quickly to downplay the drama as she's since opened up about the spat to several publications. During a chat with E! News, the mother-of-two explained: "What couple doesn't have lovers' quarrels? Tom and I are very passionate and very much in love with each other and things happen. Unfortunately we are very much public people and so everybody likes to talk about it. From the Housewives to the restaurant, it's very hard to keep privacy." Look at that spin. Well played, girl. On the alleged slap, de Lesseps quipped: "It was more of a tap then a slap. It was a lovers' quarrel. I think all couples go through these things." Do they though?? We're not sure about that. Nonetheless, Luann wants fans to know that she did NOT hit her husband as she later told People: "I did not slap him in the face. End of story. It was like a face hold more than a slap, really. It was a little love pat — it wasn't a slap. A slap is something totally different. People magnify that because they want to make their story richer. People like to exaggerate." A "love pat"? Seriously? Why not just say it was a gentle caress, only done extremely fast, and hard, and in anger? Speaking of the drama surrounding this story, it seems the RHONY vet is more than exhausted with the peanut gallery weighing in on her love life. She continued with E! News: "It was made to be a much bigger deal. People like to gossip, people like to talk. That can weigh heavily on a relationship. Tom and I have been through a lot, but we love each other. We aren't going to let gossip or rumors get the best of us." And they really aren't, as the 52-year-old went on to brag about all of the "makeup sex" she and Tom are having. We're sure her children LOVE reading this. LOLz! Related: Kim Zolciak Has A HUGE New Tattoo! Luann added: "Tom and I have a very passionate love affair going and that's why we got married. We love each other. And we're working through problems... A good healthy argument makes for good makeup sex. And we are having a lot of makeup sex." Passionate sex aside, the newlyweds are also taking a weekend trip to Newport in order to reconnect and enjoy some alone time. And for good measure, the Countess reiterated one last time: "Tom and I are good. We love each other and you work through things. That's what couples do—so everything is fine and we are happy." Who are you trying to convince, doll??? WE TEASE. Hopefully, this is the last bit of drama the love birds face -- but, we doubt it will be. [Image via WENN.].....»»

Patton Oswalt Tells The Story Of Falling In Love With Fiancée Meredith Salenger Following The Devastating Death Of His Wife

Patton Oswalt has truly found love again. We weren't sure the comedian would bounce back following the devastating death of his wife Michelle McNamara in April 2016. Nonetheless, Cupid's arrow has struck the Ratatouille star in the heart and he's more than willing to open up about his love story with fiancée Meredith Salenger. Related: Kylie FINALLY Explains [...] Patton Oswalt has truly found love again. We weren't sure the comedian would bounce back following the devastating death of his wife Michelle McNamara in April 2016. Nonetheless, Cupid's arrow has struck the Ratatouille star in the heart and he's more than willing to open up about his love story with fiancée Meredith Salenger. Related: Kylie FINALLY Explains Why She Broke Up With Tyga! As we previously, Patton and Meredith became engaged only a month after going public on the red carpet at the premiere for the film Baby Driver. While to some it may seem like the twosome got engaged very quickly, the love birds couldn't be more confident in their whirlwind romance. On how they fell in love, Patton explained to Playboy: "My fiancée and I started talking February 28, through Facebook. We have friends in common and we were messaging, and it just turned into every night for three months-- February through May. We would talk about everything, writing these short novels to each other every night. It wasn't like I met this person and there was some thunderbolt. During that time, we never even spoke, never met face-to-face. We had conversations about books and philosophies and what love means and what loyalty and death are. We talked all about Michelle and what I was going through and the stuff that Meredith has gone through. We didn't meet face-to-face until May 20." However, when they did meet, the pair felt like they had known each other for years. He continued: "It was as if I had known this person since we were teenagers and we both had unrequited crushes since we were 14 and now it was finally crashing together." Awwwwww. Honestly, after what Patton's been through, we're just happy he's happy again. In regards to how he coped with losing his wife, the funny man credited his eight-year-old Alice for getting him through the dark days. The King Of Queens alum shared: "This is going to sound selfish, but I'm forever glad that I have Alice. If I hadn't had a daughter and my wife died, we wouldn't be talking right now. I'm not saying I would be dead, but I would be a shut-in alcoholic. Everything would have shut down. I wouldn't have been about anything. But with Alice, it was and is 'You got to get up.' There are mornings when we're late to school because I'm sad, but I've still fucking got to get up. A night when I've had maybe one scotch with some friends, I'll say, 'That's it. I've got to take her to school tomorrow.' "If there were no reason to wake up, I would be morbidly obese. I'd be rewatching movies I've seen a million times, and I would have wallowed and sealed myself off in a falsely comforting bath of despair. Depression is not terrifying. Depression is seductive and comforting. It sticks around so long because it creates this false sense of 'Oh, here's where I'm safe.' Grief is like depression's drill sergeant. It knows the tricks that depression doesn't know. Grief is like, 'Hey, depression, I taught you everything you know, but I didn't teach you everything I know. Here, watch what I can do.'" Regardless, happy days are here for the 48-year-old as Meredith now brings "excitement and calm" into his life. Thankfully, both his and his late wife's families are on board with his new engagement. The industry vet noted: "When I told Michelle's sisters they were like, 'Oh my God, we were so worried. We thought you were going to be alone forever.' If I had passed away, no fucking way would I want someone as dynamic and unique as Michelle to be pining for me. My family was terrific. My dad served in Vietnam for three years, so he's very pragmatic, like, 'Why would you make yourself miserable if you don't need to be?' He was really happy, and my mom was excited too… My brother was really happy, like, 'Oh my God. She's smart. She's sane. It's wonderful.'" AH-Mazing. We're wishing the future Mr. and Mrs. Oswalt only the best as they continue to celebrate their engagement!! [Image via Instagram.].....»»

The catchy chorus goes, “Girl you got a body like Sriracha, every time I bring you ‘round the homies wanna watch ya, got it from your mama but that ain’t what she taught ya, that’s why I call you lil’ ‘racha.” The Barkeley-born singer is emerging as a hyper creative, singing, dancing wunderkind. “My music is a modern take on nineties R&B with a little Bay Area edge,” shares 16-year-old Marteen, who just signed to Warner Bros. Records. “Coming from Northern California, you have a certain mentality. It’s an indescribable attitude.” Click inside to read JustJared.com‘s exclusive interview with Marteen… MARTEEN ESTEVEZ INTERVIEW JJ: Congratulations on Sriracha, the video is amazing! Riding on the hood of the car is such an awesome shot. Did you conceptualize the video? ME: Thanks. Not completely, but I wanted to make sure it represented the Bay Area since that’s where I’m from, and the standing on cars comes from the hyphy movement of the early 2000′s. We shot the whole thing in West Oakland and had a lot of fun. JJ: How did the song come about? Did you write it and who did you work with on the song? ME: The song started kinda as a joke one day when I was eating some fried rice with Sriracha on it in the studio and told my producer JR [Rotem] that we should make a song called Sriracha. I told him I wanted it to have a fun feel and he started playing the piano part that’s in the song. The beginning of the hook came to me right away and I started playing around with it. We knew as soon as I laid down the first couple melodies that it was gonna be dope. We showed it to my homies Marty James and YMTK a couple days later and they helped us finish it. JJ: Do you really love Sriracha as a hot sauce and spicy food in general? What are your favorite spicy foods? ME: I do love Sriracha actually. I don’t put hella of it on stuff, but I like to spice things up a little. I also really like Frank’s hot sauce. I don’t eat a lot of overly spicy foods but I mess with curry and love Thai and Indian food. JJ: Name the top five celebs who have bodies like Sriracha. ME: Well even though I say “body like Sriracha” in the song I’m not actually talking about a perfect body cause that could be different for everyone depending on what you like, but I more mean an attitude and confidence. I would say my top five based on that is Rihanna, Gal Gadot, Zendaya, Ella Mai, and Cardi B. Betty White a lil’ racha too tho. (laughs) JJ: You have a unique sense of style. Who do you look to for fashion inspiration? Are there certain movies, eras or people who have informed your look? ME: Yeah I figured out that I really like clothes from the 80′s and 90′s. My dad jokes that I like grandpa clothes cause I see old people all the time and say how fire their clothes are. (laughs) Fashion is one of our biggest ways to show self-expression and I like to wear things that make me feel happy. JJ: Your new haircut is very polarizing. People either LOVE or HATE your version of the bowl cut. What made you get it done and how long will you be keeping it? ME: Yeah it’s funny cause you’re right, people are like WTF is up with your hair or they really like it and respect me having my own style. I cut it cause I had the same haircut for awhile and wanted to change it up. I wanted to get something that nobody my age really had and started looking at haircuts online to find something different. I ran across this barber from London who made up this cut called the London Fringe which is what inspired my haircut. I like being different so it’s okay if people don’t always get it cause most people are used to everyone being the same. I’ll probably rock it till I’m tired of it and want to try something new. JJ: You grew up in San Francisco’s Bay Area. What’s your ethnic background? What was your childhood like? How does that reflect in your personal style, your music, and your life in general? ME: I’m mixed with Colombian and white, but my family is a rainbow of different races. I went through some things growing up with family members close to me who were struggling with drug addiction and other stuff, but it’s taught me a lot about what I want and don’t want for my life, and helps me make better decisions as I get older. I moved around a lot as a kid too and grew up in seven different cities in the Bay. I’ve lived in the hood, middle class neighborhoods, and a nice neighborhood. I think being able to see different things and perspectives has made me who I am. It gave me an appreciation for different cultures, and gave me understanding for people from all backgrounds. All of this has played a part in my music, my message, and who I am. I definitely want to be a voice for positivity and hope. A lot of kids don’t come from the best backgrounds and they need to know that they can still do anything they dream – like I am. JJ: You recently went to the Teen Choice Awards. Who are some new teen artists you’ve been obsessed with recently? ME: I can’t really think of any teen artist that I’ve been listening to lately, I listen to a lot of just slightly older artists – PnB Rock, Ty Dolla $ign, Calvin Harris, and Amine. JJ: What are some of your favorite restaurants in LA? Where are your favorite hang-out spots in LA? ME: I love BeaBea’s in Burbank…they got the best breakfast. Mama Hong’s in Burbank got the best Pho. SweetGreen got the best salads. Pink Pepper in Hollywood got some bomb Thai, and Portos always smacks on the pastries and Cuban food. I also love Tender Greens, Chick-fil-A, and hella other places. I love food in general. (laughs) As far as hang-out spots, I mostly kick it at friends’ houses, but I love going to Venice Beach. It reminds me of the Bay for some reason. JJ: When can fans expect new music? Any collaborations? Is there an EP or album on the way?​ How soon? ME: I’m dropping a project very soon, but I don’t have an exact date yet. I’m not focused on getting any collabs right now, but we’ll see. They can definitely count on me dropping more music and visuals over the next couple months!.....»»

American Idol Producer Defends Katy Perry"s Crazy Salary & Explains Why A Reboot Is Already Happening!

Producer Cecile Frot-Coutaz sat down with The Hollywood Reporter this week to dish on the reboot that has many fans saying -- "Huh? But why?" -- and explained why execs wasted no time bringing the hit show back. She also spoke on the insane paycheck Katy Perry is reported to be receiving as a judge -- and explained why the pop star is totally worth it! Video: Katy To Host 2017 MTV VMAs! The CEO of FremantleMedia North America, which produces Idol, says the show's production costs are on par with competing shows -- even with Katy Kat's reported $25 million salary. In an interview published on Thursday, she explained: "The show is not more expensive than its competitors in the genre. If other networks can make it work on similar properties, then there's no reason why ABC couldn't. This notion that the show [costs] a lot more than any other is completely untrue. We know that because we've made other shows in other genres. ABC wouldn't order something that didn't work for them financially." Showbiz is still a business, after all. The 51-year-old added that she thinks the Swish Swish singer will also benefit from this new job during this transitional phase of her career, noting: "Katy is in a transition in terms of her own career. It has been shown now what these platforms can do for artists. It has been beneficial to other people, whether it's on Idol or The Voice. But I think she genuinely cares. She auditioned when she was a guest judge on Idol in 2010 and then on the [U.K.] X-Factor. She's brilliant." Brilliant, indeed! We fondly remember Katy's 2010 guest spot -- specifically when she threatened to throw coke in Kara Dioguardi's face. Related: Fox Is Salty About Losing Idol The other judges have yet to be confirmed -- though rumored stars include Chris Daughtry, Lionel Richie, and Charlie Puth -- one name, however, was always in the cards to return: Ryan Seacrest! Frot-Coutaz admitted producers "always" planned on locking down the OG host, despite his super busy sched. She explained: "It was always going to happen. It's hard for Ryan. He's on the East Coast now and had to figure out how to make it work, but he's the hardest-working man in show business, so there will be some flying back and forth. But, as I said, it was always going to happen. He's the face of Idol." Eh, we think Simon Cowell's eye rolls are the face of Idol -- but Ry Guy is a close second! Related: Idol Alum Haley Reinhart Arrested For Battery! As for why ABC felt like it was the right time to bring back Idol just a year after its cancellation on Fox, the exec explained: "When Idol wrapped, we did extensive research. We found that we'd recruited new, much younger viewers. Do you wait five or six years, with the landscape continuing to evolve, and risk losing those followers? In thinking about doing the right thing for the brand and franchise, it felt to us that it was an unfinished story. Even though the show lived on Fox for 15 years, its audience is actually closer to that of ABC or CBS." We agree... if by "unfinished story" she means countless winners who have yet to launch legit music careers. LOLz! Will YOU be tuning into the next chapter of American Idol when it returns?

In a lengthy feature for The Hollywood Reporter, the 56-year-old opened the door for readers to learn more about his plans for the future, his friendship with Barack Obama, parenthood, and, for the first time ever, how he met and fell in love with Amal Clooney four years ago. The actor remembered meeting the human rights lawyer near Lake Como in July 2013 when she was on her way to Cannes with a mutual friend. Related: George Reveals The Twins' VERY Different Personalities! The former bachelor recalled: "I thought she was beautiful, and I thought she was funny and obviously smart ... She probably thought I was old. Then she sent some pictures from when she was here, and we were writing each other, emailing, talking, mostly about what was going on in each other's lives, and over a period of time it became clear we were more than just friends." The picture-perfect pair's first date didn't happen until months later when George invited Amal to come to the recording of the score for his 2014 directorial outing Monuments Men at Abbey Road Studios in October 2013 in London. The director explained: "That was a good first date. Then we went for dinner. She said, 'Let's go to this place.' It was one of those places that was incredibly hip and chic. And when we came out, there were 50 paparazzi there. But she handled it like a champ. And pretty quickly, things escalated once I was in London." After spending six weeks together in London, the two "spent Christmas together in Cabo San Lucas. Then we went on a safari in Kenya. Amal loves giraffes; they're her favorite animal. She went to this place called Giraffe Manor, where the giraffes stick their heads through the windows and kiss you." When he got back to El Lay, George told his friend Ben Weiss about the new woman in his life: "I had a picture of her, looking back, smiling at these giraffes, and I said, 'I think I'm going to ask her to marry me.'" Awww! In February 2014, George started planning the proposal without telling Amal: "It was a full-on leap of faith. She was in England, coming back [to Los Angeles], and she'd had a conversation with her parents, who were like, 'What are George's intentions?' And she was saying, 'Take it easy. We've been going out for six months.' And then she showed up." And then on April 28, the celeb took the jump with an intimate dinner at home: "I'm the cook in the family. Believe me, Amal makes reservations. I did pasta of some form, not that impressive. And then over champagne, after dinner, I told her there was a lighter to light the candle in the drawer, and she reached back and pulled out a ring. And I did all the stuff, got down on my knee and did all the things you're supposed to do. I had a playlist with my Rosemary songs on it [his late aunt was the singer Rosemary Clooney], and I was waiting for this song, 'Why Shouldn't I?' 'Why shouldn't I take a chance when romance passes by? / Why shouldn't I know of love?' It's a really good song about why can't I be in love? And it played, and she's like, 'Holy shit!' And she just kept staring at the ring, going, 'Oh, my God.' It was 20 minutes of me on my knee, waiting for her to say yes, because she was so shocked. She only said yes when 'Goody, Goody' came on, which isn't very romantic — it's kind of mean: 'So you met someone who set you back on your heels, goody, goody.'" He went on: "My only doubt was if she thought maybe it was too soon. But there was no doubt that we were the right couple and that we were the right team. And we were a team from right off the bat. Immediately, we felt we were just happy, and we have been happy ever since ... It changes you in every way that every person who's fallen madly in love changes. Suddenly, the other person's life becomes more important than your own. That's not unique to us; that's [unique to] all people who are lucky enough to find the perfect partner. I'm sorry I was 50-something when it happened, but only because I could have spent even more time with her." OMG, how adorable!! We love this story!

As we previously reported, the Bachelor season 21 stars confirmed on Friday that they're ending their relationship -- more than five months after fans witnessed their televised engagement on the ABC dating competition. Whomp, whomp. Related: Corinne Olympios Has TWO Shows In The Works! Miz Grimaldi was the first to break her silence following the breakup announcement as she took to Instagram and posted: It's okay to feel broken. It's okay to cry. It's okay to lean on a friend. In the end, it will always be okay.A post shared by VanessaGrimaldi (@vanessagrimaldi30) on Aug 28, 2017 at 1:23pm PDT So sad. And it appears as though Viall is also going through a hard time as he recently told Us Weekly: "In times that aren't great, you have to kind of spend time with your loved ones. I'm lucky enough to have friends outside of L.A. I'm heading back to Chicago this weekend, which I think will be good for me. I'm trying to stay positive, being around friends and family. It helps me stay positive. And you know, what helps me is just kind of believing in yourself. It's obviously easy to get insecure and feel bad about yourself. You get in your head about things when things aren't working out for you." It probably doesn't help that Nick's relationship with Vanessa was the Wisconsin native's FOURTH attempt at finding love via the Bachelor franchise. As for his current feelings for Grimaldi, the 36-year-old promised that they're "of course" still friends. He continued: "I still love her very much. I'm not afraid to say that. I like to try new things, get out of my comfort zone. I know I have a lot of work to do in that arena. And it's fun to try and I always appreciate the opportunity to try new things and that's been a lot of fun." On how he's coping with the split, Andi Dorfman's ex explained: "I'm always trying to stay busy, especially right now with things. My friends, my family and Vanessa and I are still very much each other's support system. We're trying to do that and it's a challenge at times, but we still realize that we're there for each other." Awwwww. Oh, and for all you Nick fans out there, the businessman says he still thinks love is in his future. What a good attitude. And, who knows, maybe one day these two will find their way back to one another. Although, we doubt it... [Image via Instagram.].....»»
