Bachelorette Andi Dorfman’s Tell All: 7 Shocking Revelations
Former Bachelorette Andi Dorfman released a tell all book, It’s Not Okay: Turning Heartbreak into Happily Never After, and it’s a doozy! She spilled the beans on her the man who won her heart that season of The Bachelorette, Josh Murray, and the runner-up, the notorious Nick Viall. The picture she painted in her book isn’t a pretty one and, since the two men who competed for her heart are now competing for another woman on Bachelor in Paradise, we figured we’d take a look at some of Andi’s most shocking revelations about these two studs to come from her book – check it out:
7. Josh Was Controlling
According to Andi, Josh isn’t just a pretty face – he’s also really controlling. After she accepted his proposal on The Bachelorette, she was forbidden from taking photos with other men. Getting caught even talking to a male guest at an event was enough to cause a scene. “I was talking to a guest at the event, who happened to be a man,” she wrote in her book. “When [Murray] pulled me aside and told me how disrespectful I was being.” She claims that he then called her a “whore,” which prompted her to temporarily end the engagement.
6. Josh Was Emotionally Abusive
As time wore on, the former Bachelorette began to feel like she was always walking on eggshells with Josh. “What people didn’t know was after two shows, I had become a twenty-seven-year-old woman who walked on eggshells in her own home. What they didn’t know is I was trapped with someone who, in my opinion, often behaved like an emotional abuser. Yes, I said it, and I’m not taking it back. He was good-looking, with an electric smile and the ability to charm anyone, and his affection in public made people believe that he was a loving partner, but by the end of our relationship, it was just a mask covering the control he exerted in private. He had an uncanny way of manipulating situations and conversations to make me feel like the worst person in the world. In his own words, I was not only selfish and unappreciative, but the ‘most miserable person he’d ever met,’” she wrote.
