Bachelorette 2010: Justin Rego Speaks Out About Girlfriends, Ali Fedotowsky
Justin Rego is the controversial figure from the 2010 season of The Bachelorette and he’s ready to speak out on the events that took place while he was supposed to be searching for love with Ali Fedotowsky.
For those of you who missed it, Justin was kicked off the show after Ali found out from a former Bachelorette contestant that he had two girlfriends back home.
Since his exit, Justin has been fighting harsh criticism from fans of the show. In the midst of trying to fight back against the public scrutiny, Justin and his publicist, Julie Muir, have found themselves in the middle of a lawsuit against Warner Brothers.
Today, both Justin and Julie spoke openly with Adele from the Canadian radio show 91.5 The Beat where they tried their best to paint Justin in a more positive light.
Julie told Adele that “Justin’s name was dragged through the mud” last night on The Bachelorette Men Tell All when Craig R said he spoke for all the men when he said they do not support his actions and have no interest in being friends with him.
But Julie insists this isn’t the case. She revealed this morning that Jessie (the former Bachelorette contestant who revealed Justin’s secrets to Ali and slammed Justin on last night’s Men Tell All) texted her after the filming of last night’s special (on July 17) and asked Julie and Justin to meet her and Kirk (pretty sure something is heating up there) at a Keg restaurant. Julie insists that when they met up, Kirk was sincerely happy to see Justin and wants to be friends with him.
Justin also spoke openly with Adele telling her he’s doing as “much publicity as possible” after a “tough” night last night.
Justin says that he was surprised to see so many of his supposed friends talk so negatively about him on the show.
When asked why he didn’t attend the Men Tell All last night, Justin said it was “the simple fact that I didn’t want to get edited. I didn’t want to be at the mercy of the producers of the show.”
When asked if it was true that the show feeds drinks to the contestants and then makes them sign contracts, Justin says it was completely true.
And finally, when asked if he was dating Jessica and Kimberly (the second supposed girlfriend), Justin adamantly denied the allegations – even though there were voicemails to prove he was still interested in Jessica. Shocking.
