The reports are flying that former Bachelorette Desiree Hartsock and fiance Chris Siegfried are already on the rocks and nearing splitsville in the near future. InTouch ran the couple on a recent cover, claiming their relationship is "over already!" and even Desiree's brother Nate hasn't been very helpful, saying that Chris was obviously not Des's "first choice." Ouch. But there's at least one person defending the couple and wanting us to believe that they're doing just fine: Season 9 Bachelor Jason Mesnick!
Jason took to Twitter a couple days ago, writing, "Liar Liar In Touch Weekly. I just saw the cover! Molly Mesnick & I had dinner with Dez and Chris last night and they are so happy together!”
Huh. Good to know!
Kinda makes me feel like I may be right in my recent thinking that they actually ARE going to last. Not necessarily because they're so hopelessly madly deeply legitimately in love, but maybe because, as Nate Hartsock said, Des really does "want to get married so badly and have kids." Maybe also because Chris clearly ADORES Des! Come on, the woman could do way worse than spending her life with a guy who thinks she's a goddess who inspires him to write copious pages of really bad poetry, amirite?! (In fact, some fans may say doing worse would have meant ending up with Mr. Noncommittal Brooks Forester himself!)
Regardless of WHY, I feel like everything we've seen from these two since they "came out" as a couple points to -- at the very least -- a solid attempt to make it work. Sure, they may also sound like they have something to prove. Or maybe they're just so happy to finally be done with the dating game (literally!) and move on to the next chapter of their lives. Either way, I wouldn't put my money on a breakup just yet. Whether the tabloids and reality show watchers believe it or not, I really wouldn't be surprised if Chris and Des truly believe they're in it for the long-haul.
Do you think there's any truth to the breakup rumors?
