‘Bachelorette’ Desiree Hartsock Gets a Strange Visitor From Her Past in Season 9 (SPOILERS)

bachelorette desiree hartsockAs Bachelorette Desiree Hartsock's season progresses, more and more behind the scenes details are being leaked by Reality Steve, and the latest tidbit involves an exciting visitor from Desiree's past.

Spoilers after the jump!

Apparently, Bachelor winner Catherine Giudici is flying to Portugal to hang out with Desiree and presumably advise her on which guy to choose. We already knew that Bachelor alumna Lesley Murphy would visit Des abroad, and now it sounds like a regular old reunion for three of the final four on Sean Lowe's season.

But, if I remember correctly, and I think that I do, Des wasn't really that close with Lesley and Catherine. They had their own butt-buddy thing going on, and Des was more focused on getting to know Sean. I don't recall ever seeing the three of them hanging out or sharing a laugh. In fact, once the show wrapped, Catherine and Lesley revealed their close-knit friendship, but never once was Desiree included in the mix.

So ... are they going to pretend to be Desiree's best friend just to get back on TV? I wouldn't put it past them. I'm sure Desiree doesn't mind, either -- the more publicity her season gets, the better, and if that means Catherine and Lesley have to be included, so be it.

But if Sean and Catherine break up in the next few months, it's going to be awesome to watch Cath on Des' season talking about how she found the one on a reality show, and that Des can do the same. The irony will be as thick as paella, and it will make fantastic TV.

Are you excited to see Catherine and Lesley on Des' season?
