We would all like answers! Bachelor in Paradise alum Raven Gates opened up about her feud with Rachel Lindsay and confessed that she was … confused. The Arkansas native dished her side of things to Kaitlyn Bristowe during a live taping of the former Bachelorette star’s “Off the Vine” podcast on November 19. Rachel previously revealed to Andy Cohen during the October 2 episode of Watch What Happens Live that the two will “never” be friends again.
“I wish I had answers, but I don’t and I don’t know if I ever will,” Raven, 28, admitted to the Kaitlyn, 34, and the audience. “I have been really saddened by the whole thing just because I really loved her. I guess I just have to put it to rest and it is what it is.”
The brunette beauty seemed taken aback by the abrupt ending of their friendship, but the lawyer — despite not divulging many details — didn’t seem to have any cloudiness over the issue. “I can’t say. I promised I wouldn’t say. But it was enough for me to not want to be friends with her anymore … And I never will be,” the 34-year-old told the Bravo host about Raven at the time. This leads to a few questions: Who did she promise? Why can’t she say? Sigh, we’ll just have to wait for more Bachelor Nation tea to be spilled.
Rachel has never been afraid to ruffle some feathers — which is a big reason why fans love her — but her statements about Raven made other franchise alums like Colton Underwood speak out against her. The former Bachelor star claimed that the Dallas native is a “hypocrite” and she “ran her mouth” about him to his girlfriend, Cassie Randolph. Rachel later said that she was “confused” about Colton’s statements during an appearance on the YouTube show Whit & Ry on October 16.
There are no secrets between show alums, and Dean Unglert exclusively dished to Life & Style his thoughts on the brewing feud between his ex and Colton. “Rachel is very opinionated, which is great, but she’s also not afraid to like call people out and talk s–t,” he said during an event at the Odwalla Zero Sugar Shack. “[That’s] fine, but it’s also like, you’re going to get a lot of flack back if you’re giving other people flack. You know what I mean?”
There’s no end in sight for these feuds. In the meantime, we’ll be over here at the edge of our seats!
