How rude! Rachel Lindsay‘s Bachelor Nation besties planned out a super fun girls’ getaway to the Dominican Republic in order to celebrate her recent engagement to the man who wins her final rose on Season 13 of ABC’s The Bachelorette. But when Rachel no-showed to her own party, her pals decided to celebrate without her anyway!
Even though she competed with a handful of other women for Nick Viall’s love on Season 21 of The Bachelor, the 32-year-old bonded with some of the ladies — including Raven Gates, Alexis Waters, Jasmine Goode, Danielle Lombard, Astrid Loch, and Sarah Vendal. The girls flew out to the Dominican Republic to stay at Hard Rock Punta Cana, but when they arrived, they realized that the guest of honor was missing.
“All of the girls went this weekend because Rachel’s obviously engaged and this was going to be her fun getaway weekend to celebrate,” a source revealed to E! News. “She somehow didn’t make it on her flight yesterday. No one has any idea what’s going on. She was supposed to be there. It’s her trip. But at the last minute, she didn’t show up.”
The ladies didn’t let Rachel’s absence stop them from having a good time, though. They all posed in their bikinis for a group photo, and Alexis poked fun at the situation in her caption on Instagram. “Celebrating [Rachel’s] engagement without [Rachel].”
It’s unclear why Rachel missed her flight, but at least fans who follow her on Instagram know she’s okay. She used the story feature on Instagram to document a fun night out with her sister Nneka and her cousin Andrea at a Gucci Mane concert in her hometown of Dallas.
In an unprecedented move, Rachel revealed that she was engaged to her Bachelorette winner before the season even started but of course, she chose to keep his identity a secret. But her pal Astrid seemed to have accidentally revealed a very telling detail during a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight. Watch the video below to find out who Rachel picks!
