That’s what friends are for! Bachelorette alum Rachel Lindsay would “absolutely” play matchmaker for Becca Kufrin following her split from fiancé Garrett Yrigoyen, the season 13 star exclusively tells Life & Style. “When she’s ready, I’ll be ready.”
“I have a great track record,” the “Higher Learning” podcast host, 35, quips. “Two couples I put together have been married, so I think I’m pretty good at this.” Considering Rachel and husband Bryan Abasolo, who she got engaged to on the show, just celebrated their one year wedding anniversary in the One Happy Island of Aruba in August, it’s safe to say she knows a thing or two about love.
“After many conversations, we came to this decision. It wasn’t something that we just arrived at one night,” the B the Label designer explained through tears. “It wasn’t based solely off of one Instagram post or somebody else’s opinions or comments. There’s much more to it. To any relationship, there [are] a lot of layers, and it’s not for me to divulge details. It’s no one’s business other than what I’m telling you right now.”
Rachel praised Becca’s honesty. “I think Becca’s doing as well as she can be considering everything that’s going on. I think it’s incredibly strong for her to come out on the podcast and show her emotion at the same time of what she’s feeling because she received a lot of criticism for the breakup,” adds the lawyer.
The MTV Ghosted star acknowledges her pal is “starting a new chapter” with her recent move to Los Angeles from Carlsbad, California, where she lived with her ex. “I think she’s doing what’s best for herself and taking time for herself, which is the best thing that she can do right now,” says Rachel. “Ignore the outside noise and surround yourself with people who support you, know you, understand you and have your back.”
Becca is also ready to move forward. “After a crazy couple of months, I made the last-minute decision to sign a lease (sight unseen) in an area that I was totally unfamiliar with,” the Bachelor Live host divulged via Instagram while announcing her relocation on September 3. “But I’m here to embrace this new adventure and put down some roots in the City of Angels during this next chapter in my life.”
It’s great to see her surrounded by amazing friends!
