Friendly exes! Bachelor contestant Victoria Fuller thanked Peter Weber for “never judging” her during their relationship. The pair had an emotional split during the March 2 episode following overnight dates. They reunited on Women Tell All and appeared to be on very good terms. The Virginia Beach native later released a statement applauding the pilot and has “all the respect in the world” for him.
“Thank you for teaching me about myself, even when I didn’t want to know. Or, when it was unpleasant,” the 26-year-old began on Instagram on March 3. “But, most of all, teaching me that I’m worth it. Thank you for always pushing me to get to the root cause [and] never judging me along the way.”
Peter, 28, and Victoria had one of the most tumultuous romances in the house. It seemed like they were never able to fully communicate, and the leading man even awarded her the most one-on-one dates this season in an attempt to keep things on track.
“You showed me what kindness truly is. What patience means in a relationship,” the brunette beauty continued. “You showed me the definition of a good thing. [And], you showed me that I can be loved unapologetically with all my flaws. For that, I am forever grateful for you.” She ended her statement by adding that she’s “excited” for what’s to come in the pilot’s life.
After the latest rose ceremony, Peter admitted that he ended things with Victoria because his “heart is farther along” with Madison Prewett and Hannah Ann Sluss. However, his reunion with the Bachelor Nation babe was extremely positive. “I really do feel good about our relationship and our growth and what both of us took from it,” the California stud expressed to his ex.
Another juicy tidbit came up during WTA when Chris Harrison addressed the accusations made by Peter’s ex Merissa Pence, who claimed during Victoria’s hometown date that she was responsible for breaking up marriages. Victoria said those statements were “absolutely not” true, and thought Merissa simply “didn’t like” her or “wanted to come on the show.”
Merissa took to Instagram to address fans who were asking about Victoria’s statements. She said her motive was to “speak for those whose lives and relationship have been ruined,” while adding that she has “receipts” from the people involved. “Everyone is entitled to their own opinion but the truth [will] always be the truth and there’s no way around that,” she added.
We can’t wait to see what’s next for Victoria. Paradise, maybe?
