Ali Fedotowsky wants y’all to chill the EFF OUT.
After Kaitlyn Bristowe and Nick Viall had sex on the most recent episode of The Bachelorette, former star Ali dished via her personal blog about kissing, sex and dating policies via The Bachelorette!
“I remember when I was the Bachelorette and I had to be SO careful about kissing the guys and other guys seeing,” Fedotowsky, 30, recalled of her stint as the Season 6 Bachelorette in 2010. “I mean OBVIOUSLY you’re going to kiss more than one guy when you are expected to find your husband out of 25 random guys in less than 3 months. Intimacy matters in a relationship and you have to test the waters!”
Fedotowsky, a supporter of contestant Nick Viall, says she’s into Kaitlyn exploring their connection.
“Nick gets the first 1-on-1 date – no real surprise there, but the guys HAVE GOT to be nervous at this point,” she noted. “[Kaitlyn’s] dates with Nick seem the most natural to me. More natural than any dates I’ve ever seen on the Bachelorette. All the dates are always too serious or too awkward and with Nick, it just seems normal. I’m into it. And obviously so was Kaitlyn.”
And she is not happy about all the shaming surrounding sex with Nick.
“Let me just dive into this topic by saying slut shaming is NOT COOL! What is wrong with people?!?! I mean really,” she sniped. “It makes me SO angry that there is such a double standard in this world when it comes to men and women having sex. I can assure you that Kaitlyn is NOT the first person to have sex with someone on the show.”
“In fact, I would argue that 95% of the Bachelors and Bachelorettes DO have sex on the show,” the Bachelor Nation member dished. “Sure, Kaitlyn did it before the infamous fantasy suite, but does that really matter? I’ve heard Mike Fleiss (the creator of the show) say that one of the Bachelors had sex with something like 6 of his 25 women!!! I’m not going to say who that Bachelor is, but people didn’t slut shame him. So stop judging Kaitlyn for following her heart annnnnnd her vagina.”
