Kaitlyn Bristowe Opens Up About What Really Happened Between Her & Nick Viall

I think we all knew that there would be some rule breaking going on during this season of The Bachelorette ... I mean, c'mon, that's what we signed up for with Kaitlyn. So when she slept with Nick Viall on last night's episode, we weren't totally surprised, but some of the bachelors were. Kaitlyn talked to People about it, and it turns out she doesn't really care what we think (surprise!). Buuuttt she does care a little about what Shawn thinks.

Kaitlyn had a lot to say about her decision, but when it comes down to it, she doesn't think she was wrong to have sex with Nick. And I dunno, guys -- I don't think she was either.

Here's the thing: She told People that she's been "compartmentalizing" her relationships with each of the guys. So basically, she's treating each of them like separate boyfriends who have nothing to do with each other.

With that in mind, her argument that her night with Nick is "something that would probably happen in the real world" is totally fair -- having sex with someone you're dating is definitely normal and an important step.

The only problem with this, of course, is that she's essentially dating nine guys at the same time.

So of course there's a lot of jealousy and possessiveness in the Bachelor mansion, and it seems like that's what Kaitlyn feels bad about -- not the actual Nick part. And that's what we saw her crying about the morning after:

I was thinking, "What if I just ruined another relationship that meant something to me?" So that's where I got upset, and that's what made me cry and break my heart -- thinking about if I just ruined another relationship because it was hard to juggle all those relationships and know exactly what was right and what was wrong.

Okay, so maybe the compartmentalizing thing isn't working out perfectly for her, especially since some of the guys don't see it that way. And by "some of the guys," we mean Shawn -- he's the one who seems to think Kaitlyn cheated on him. But it doesn't sound like she sees it that way.

Mostly, she's just hurt that all of the fans/some of the bachelors are turning against her on this. She said she doesn't understand why everyone is so shocked, not that it matters anyways:

I don't know if I would have done anything differently. Because, what? If I had waited 10 days to do it in the Fantasy Suite and not talk about it, would it have been better?

Well, she does have a point. She said it's easier for us to judge her than to relate to her, and that is true. It's always easier to judge people, but that doesn't mean we're right to do it.

Do you think Kaitlyn should have waited to sleep with Nick?
