Andi DorfmanWe all let out a collective gasp on Monday night when Nick Viall called Andi Dorfman out for sleeping with him on their fantasy suite date on The Bachelorette. It was definitely one of the most shocking moments in "After the Final Rose" history, as the unspoken rule has always been -- what happens in the fantasy suites stays in the fantasy suites.

Of course we all know that Andi ended up picking Josh Murray, despite whatever goings-on happened down in the Dominican Republic, but just because her "private" affairs became public doesn't give anyone a right to slam her. Fox News' Bob Beckel must not have gotten the memo, because he called Andi a slut during a recent episode of The Five.

Hey, Nick might have hit Andi "below the belt," but at least he only implied that she was promiscuous -- he didn't flat-out call her a dirty name.

During a segment discussing the show and Andi and Josh's relationship, the outspoken co-host declared, "She's a slut! I'm not kidding you. She sleeps with someone else, and then doesn't tell the guy about it. This is what America's come to, this crap."

Co-host and Bachelorette fan Andrea Tantaros immediately jumped to Andi's defense, saying, "Are you kidding me right now? Excuse me, Bob! You probably sleep with a different woman every night." 

"I'm not on some Bachelor, Bachelorette," he countered.

"Those in glass boudoirs, Beckel, those in glass boudoirs!" Tantaros replied. 

Beckel, who is known for making loudmouthed controversial comments, later recanted and apologized for calling Andi a "slut" because she "slept with two guys."

Another co-host, Greg Gutfeld, jumped on the Andi is a slut" bandwagon with Beckel. He said, "You're on a reality show where you're making out with guys every day. And now all the sudden he says something honest and you go, ‘Oh, wow, you just stepped over.' Nothing is private when you do a reality show."

Actually guys, that's kind of the whole point of losing the cameras for an evening. To have a private moment and see if you get along in private as well as in front of the camera.

Plus it's just gosh darn rude to call people names, regardless of what you think of them.

Do you think Bob Beckel stepped over the line with his comments about Andi?
