Relationships are a bitch. I don’t care what anyone says and how many times they try to feed you the everything happens for a reason, falling in love is glorious bullshit that they will inevitably try and feed you.
The reality is relationships are assholes. And yes, I am jaded and bitchy and I accept that fact that I am cranky, bitter, and tired of being trapped in my apartment due to the rona.
But I can’t complain really, because my love life is not out there for the world to see. However, if you were on an episode of The Bachelor, your life is out there for the world.
Cassie Randolph and Colton Underwood’s breakup made headlines, and well Cassie tried to remain nonchalant when talking about their breakup.
But hey – we all try and remain above the bullshit when our hearts are broken.
However, Cassie – there is only so far that she can be pushed before she pushes back. But she did it with class, so we can’t help but stan.
She took to her IG stories and wrote –
I would like to first state that I do not wish to create an online petty war. Colton, as you know we made an agreement to not publicly discuss our break up. I have honored this, as have you thus far.
As some of you may know, I did a GOAT interview this week – I purposely remained private and vague out of respect for Colton & our relationship. If you are wondering why I did the Bachelor GOAT interview, its because I respect the fact that Bachelor brought me the platform that I have. I don’t want to make enemies with, or turn my back on the franchise. I have no regrets, gained a great boyfriend and a healthy 1 1/2 year relationship, incredible and unique opportunities, and a platform that I intend to use for good. I want to show appreciation. I didn’t see any harm in doing the interview, as I wasn’t going to dish out details about our relationship to them.
Colton, your last Instagram post saddened me, but also left me frustrated. It seems you are subtly engaging in a tactic that peppers in passive aggressive comments such as “that obviously changed this week” in order to make me look like the bad one.
I would like to place on public record & ask you politely to refrain from discussing our relationship, as we agreed. I would also like to ask that you don’t cloud our great, 11/2 year relationship with a messy breakup. We both know that we had a great relationship and there are not many details to discuss.
On Monday evening, you informed me you intend to monetize our breakup by writing a new chapter to discuss your experience with COVID (where you stayed in my family’s house during your recovery) & about our break up. You have also refused to give me any sort of approval on the chapter that you will be writing, which will heavily feature me. (A little insight as to why I was so frustrated on my stories that evening). This seems a bit unfair to me. Colton, you can do what you want, but please do not have a double standard.
I ask you again on public record to refrain from prolonging our break up, or dragging me, when we both know it’s unwarranted. Neither of us, or anyone close to us, would have ever predicted that I would have to write this post.
Again, I can’t control your actions but I sincerely hope we can both move forward in peace.
Thanking you in advance. I would prefer this to now be the end of this. I wish you nothing but the best & hope you can move on peacefully and successfully.
Be a good man Colton. Show us you weren’t in it for the spotlight – though I don’t think any of us will ever believe that completely.
What do you think? Does he have a right to monetize their breakup? Would you?
