We saw how devestated Rachel Truehart was on the Bachelor Pad finale after discovering Michael Stagliano had a new girlfriend. Obviously she learned about the girlfriend situation off camera from Michael himself. Now we get to finally hear what that conversation was like.
Wetpaint recently talked to Rachel about the situation:
How did you find out that Michael had a girl back home?
“He didn’t have a girl ‘back home’ – he had a girl in Chicago! Finding this out actually happened in two parts. First, we had a long talk on the phone about two weeks after I got back from filming, during which he was clear about not wanting to have a long distance relationship and didn’t see us being anything more than friends. I was obviously very upset. We were just on totally different pages and I felt like he was acting very cold towards me. Then, the next morning I get a text message from him while I was at work telling me that he had starting dating a girl he met a few weeks ago and that she ‘knocked him off his feet.’ This of course knocked me off mine! The wording was rather unnecessary and the fact he chose to text this to me the next morning instead of telling me over the phone took me by surprise as well. I was shocked. He had been dating her almost the entire time I had been home and he waited that long to tell me.”
Do you think he had been seeing her before everyone left for filming?
