No, I am definitely not in contact with Sean. I do speak to a few of the Girls that are really close friends. From the House I became friends with pretty much everyone. But, I connected most and became greater friends with, with Jackie, Wendy, and Daniela.
What did you think about how Sean defended himself with your brother during the hometown dates?
I actually think he handled himself really well. Because I know my brother - the way he presents himself - can be pretty intense. I honestly think Sean handled it really, really well. And I know it really made him upset. And he still held back. And still stood up for himself. So, I think he did well.
Do you still think Sean is the farthest thing from Playboy after watching the show?
You know I think on the show, you have to date like 25 women at one time. But, I don't consider that a playboy. I think that's just the circumstances. So, I still think he's as far away from being a playboy as anyone could be.
During the 'Sean Tells All' special this week, Sean said that there were other things lacking in your relationship compared to his relationships with the other women. Do you have any idea what he might have been referring to?
Yes, you know, it's a very different experience to be in. It's not every day you share a boyfriend with other girls. So, looking back and watching the show, I do realize that maybe I did put up a guard more so than the other girls. It may not have looked like it after viewing. But, I really did. I was holding back a little bit more than I think a lot of the other Girls were. Because I wanted to make sure that he was right for me. And not just me being right for him.
And so that takes time. And it takes me a little bit longer to really say I love you. Because I want it to be right. And I think it's hard. You have to share so much in so little time.
When you were having your last exchange with Sean after the Rose Ceremony, you mentioned that all you do is give to people and they tend to take you for granted. Would you mind elaborating on that a little bit?
Yes, you know, I was referring mainly to past relationships. And even friendships because I do care more about other people than I do myself. So, a lot of times people take that for granted and take advantage of it. But, mainly that was just past relationships that I was referring to. And for some reason in that moment, I was feeling the same I guess.
What was your best experience being on the show?
My best experience; you know, there's so many to choose from. I can't even begin. Just to have some relationships with such amazing Girls was really a surprising gift from the show. Man, I don't even knoW. Maybe also being able to be in a relationship. And see how it evolves. I think that was really interesting too. And, you know, opening my eyes to other things that I could have in relationships, or bring to relationships.
Were you surprised about anything that they showed on an episode?
No, I'm actually not surprised by any of the editing. Everything that was shown did happen.
Are you still devastated over Sean or are you over it now?
After being let go, it didn't feel right and I was really upset. But, I'm also such a positive person that I knew that he was doing what he needed to do. And I've moved on. - I'm completely over it. And I wish him the best. And I know that I'll eventually find my prince charming.
Don't miss Monday night's episode of The Bachelor on ABC. Romantic adventures await Sean and the final three women - AshLee, Catherine and Lindsay - as they travel to spectacular Si Kao, Thailand. From an authentic Thai market with unusual foods to a secluded beach surrounded by a rain forest to a sexy afternoon boat ride on Thailand's sparkling waters, the dates are filled with passion and excitement as Sean continues to explore what his future would be like with each of these potential mates.
At the end of the evening Sean will present each bachelorette with an invitation to spend an intimate night together in a "fantasy suite," with the hope that she will accept. But will she? This week finishes with Sean making his most painful decision yet and leaving one devastated and inconsolable bachelorette not talking to him at all, on "The Bachelor," MONDAY, FEBRUARY 25 (8:00-10:01 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.
