'Bachelor' Host Chris Harrison Slams Ashley I. in the Meanest Way!

Ashley Iaconetti

Now that Ashley Salter is officially gone from The Bachelor, I think we can all agree that Ashley Iaconetti has taken over the title of "resident crazy chick," which probably won't change any time soon. And while everyone thinks she's pretty ridiculous due to her unhealthy Kardashian obsession, host Chris Harrison made fun of Ashley's virgin status, and I honestly can't decide if his comments are mean or downright hilarious.

He told TV Guide:

Ashley is obsessed with Ashley. Nobody else really cares, and I hate to break this to her, [but] the fact that she's a virgin isn't a huge thing. There are other virgins in the world. Her reasoning would probably be interesting to find out ... but she's really caught up in the fact that she's a virgin. It's amazingly ironic that in the same sentence she says she doesn't care about it and it's not a big deal. It begs the question: Why are you [acting like] this? It's like something she can't wait to get rid of, so she holds it over people's heads. It just shows she's young and immature. She doesn't know how to handle her sexuality yet and she's not comfortable in her own skin. Over time on the show, you're exposed as who you are, and Ashley is being exposed as young and naïve. The juxtaposition you have between her breaking down over the whole thing and then having Becca go, "Oh by the way, me too," shows the difference between a woman and a young girl.

Damn!!! Tell us how you really feel, Chris! (Can you believe he actually went there?)

OMG. Did he or did he not basically just call Ashley totally lame because she hasn't done the horizontal limbo? I mean, I get what he's saying about her needing to grow up and all, but man, just because she hasn't had sex doesn't mean she "doesn't know how to handle her sexuality."

(Isn't it kind of the opposite?)

But then again, the fact that Ashley is pretty much unable to handle any other aspect of her behavior in the house does kind of sum up Chris' point.

For the time being, Chris Soules seems pretty intrigued by her, but odds are good he's going to realize she lacks a certain level of maturity that he's looking for. Come on, can you really picture her marrying him and living on a farm in Iowa doing the housewife thing and being totally content with it?

No. Way. In. HELL. I mean, the stores there probably don't even carry the right brand of falsies, so she's actually pretty screwed if Chris picks her.

Do you think Chris Harrison's comments about Ashley are mean?
