Sounds like there's trouble in consistently wet-pavement paradise. Season 9 Bachelorette Desiree Hartsock attended a press call to promote her show, which premieres a week from today, but wasn't her smiley, bubbly self. According to those on the scene, Des' responses to questions about the season were less than enthusiastic. In fact, she sounded sort of downtrodden over the whole thing. Uh. Oh.
USA Today reports that Des seemed shy when talking about her experience and finding love. She said:
Overall, the experience was definitely an emotional journey. There were a lot of surprises. Overall, I think it's a journey of love, and love isn't always going to be happy. There's going to be ups and downs.
That doesn't sound like someone who's freshly engaged and bursting with joyful, new-love bliss. It sounds like someone who got dumped. I mean, let's be real. When your friends talk about their past relationships, they always bring up the "journey" and "how much they learned." They'd never say those things about their current relationship.
Then, just when you thought it couldn't get more bleakly ominous, Des shared:
The journey was incredibly emotional and it was really surprising throughout, so unfortunately I can't comment on that at this time.
There we go with the "journey" again. And what "surprise" is she talking about? In this context, it doesn't sound good.
Guys? I'm worried. Maybe Des was just in a weird space when she answered the questions, or maybe she's excellent at hiding what really happened, or maybe her ass got left at the altar of proposal on some desert island.
Guess we'll have to wait and see if Des' fairy-tale is more like a freaking nightmare.
What do you think about Des' cryptic "love isn't always happy" quotes?
