Desiree Hartsock's Defensive Side May Signal the End for Her & Chris

Stuck in Reality 20

Des and Chris

With all of the hoopla surrounding Bachelor couple Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici's upcoming wedding, the pressure has been off Desiree Hartsock and Chris Siegfried as far as maintaining a solid relationship in the public eye.

Think about it for a second -- when was the last time you heard about something going on with those two? Other than Des and Chris saying they'll have a TV wedding right after Sean and Catherine's big day was announced, they've really been off the radar lately.

And that's why it seems a little strange that Desiree has been posting philosophical stuff to Twitter and Instagram -- giving the indication that she's having a tough time dealing with her haters. (I feel ya, honey -- but they kind of come with the territory.)

A couple of days ago, she shared this photo with a Steve Jobs quote on Instagram. (I know it's hard, but do your best to ignore the grammatical error.)

Steve Jobs quote

Huh. Pretty poignant. And definitely a great reminder to all of us.

And then she offered these words of wisdom to her Twitter followers:

Interesting. I know she's trying to be all happy go lucky and positive -- but it's obvious from these messages that someone (or a multitude of peeps) is getting under Des' skin these days.

If she really doesn't care about her critics or their opinions, then why does she feel it necessary to call them out? I know it's tough not to get defensive sometimes, but if she really wants to silence her haters -- the best thing Des can do is to just keep quiet and go about her life without acknowledging them. You know, like Sean and Catherine have been doing ever since their proposal in Thailand aired. People did everything in their power to tear those two to shreds -- but now they're happier than ever and getting hitched and have successfully proven the doubters wrong.

If Des wants her relationship with Chris to last for the long haul, she's going to have to learn to turn a blind eye to all of the criticism coming her way. It's only going to get worse once her wedding date rolls around.

Do you think living in the public eye will eventually break up Des and Chris?

It's People like you who have nothing better to do then to bug others who have been in the public eye on tv. Why can't you let this couple live and enjoy their time together.. and get to know each other. So they chose to be on tv.. and have their wedding on tv. that's their desire, but for one to keep harping on them for whatever reasons they may have (real people have issues too). Leave them alone and let them be!

Really? Really??? Because she posts uplifting and inspirational things that means she's letting negative ppl affect her? Really? That sounds like a load of crap to me. Just seems like she's posting uplifting and inspirational quotes. You have reached waaaay to far by saying that then saying it could end her relationship. What a crock. Quit trying to make a "sensational" story when there isn't one.

You, the reporter, seem to enjoy creating doom and gloom. Maybe Des posts these comments because she knows a lot of unhappy people, and she's hoping they will see them and act on them. Maybe they're busy with constructive projects and don't have time to be in the public eye living it up.  Spaces in between some of the letters in this post are computer glitches. I noticed them but can't correct them.  I'm sure you, Ms. Perfect Puncuation, noticed them also.

And just maybe those of us with gray matter between our ears see the axe we know is coming starting to fall. Des said for WEEKS that Brooks was the one and when he left she was so "devastated." And yet just 2-1/2 days later - and that's all it was when you figure the time line of the final elimination and the final rose ceremoney - all of a sudden "Chris, it was you all along!" REALLY? She changed her mind faster than I change my underwear. Talk about shallow. If she was so in love with Brooks there is no way she could be that much in love with another guy IN 2-1/2 DAYS! When Des went on the show she asked for the scrutiny so suck it up.

I totally agree with Stacey's comment.  It's time to leave them alone.  You are ready way to much into nothing.  So what, she posted a positive quote by steve jobs!  Who doesn't?  I can't even believe that you wasted your time to post something like this or that I am actually taking the time to comment.  If you want to harrass someone, then harrass the trash whore Catherine.  She has no class, no taste and her marriage will NOT last.  Bother them, they are the ones creating BS in the media, the only reason they are following through with a wedding is for the money.  Des has only ever wanted to find happiness and be left alone.

Debbie Roberts Zace

They don't have to have a public relationship to be happy.  Who says every couple on the Bachelor and Bachelorette have to be in the public eye all the time.  I say "LEAVE THEM ALONE."

Jennie Sage

She needs to focus on the HAWKS!

Ann Morris

No if she doesn't listen to everybody that is telling he what to do!! Listen to your soon to be hubby!!!

Seriously? If you read her blog, the quote ties into her blog post. Stop reading too much into these things, jeez. Look all over pinterest, where des finds these quotes, there's inspirational/motivational quotes everywhere! Are those people trying to prove a point to anyone else??? No! They're just uplifting messages!

Rebecca Kraus

Remember that right after Des expressed her love for Brooks, she immediately expressed that she was also falling in love with Chris. Des did not rule out Chris. She was still apprehensive about Brooks. So, rather than being negative, be hopeful and embrace them while they build their lives together. If we were in their shoes, I think we would want that for ourselves. Wouldn't you?
