Apparently Bachelorette finalist Arie Luyendyk Jr. was spotted on a lunch date with his ex-girlfriend, Sonia Rockwell, on June 28th. Scandal just seems to follow the 30-year-old racecar driver, who dated Bachelorette producer Cassie Lambert several years ago.
Arie has become a fan favorite and obviously an Emily favorite. She quickly forgave him for omitting his past relationship with the show’s producer last week and gave him a rose.
But he has certainly been a mega-situation! I mean Bachelorette producers had to take this guy to get a tattoo of an ex-gf’s name removed just prior to taping! Suffice it to say, Arie loves the ladies.
According to Star Magazine Arie and his ex-girlfriend “spent the better part of an hour together drinking coffee” … “They obviously had great affection for each other, and Arie kept reaching over to touch her hands. When they were done, he put his arm around her and they headed down the street.”
Actress/model Sonia Rockwell told the magazine: “We know everything about each other, good and bad. We still support each other tremendously, and the feelings we have for each other will always be there. He dated a number of women after we were together, but I believe he has always wondered ‘What if?’ about us — and still does.”
“Still does!” Wow! This guy really loves the ladies and the ladies love him! Remember Reality Steve reported Arie was caught texting a girl while on the show (although apparently “that girl” was not Sonia, but was rather a very young twenty-something (it’s getting really difficult to keep Arie’s ladies straight — we need some visual aids).
Well I will reserve judgement on this situation until I see who wins. Perhaps Arie is heartbroken and looking for a shoulder to cry on.
