Some things just aren’t meant to last forever.
Don’t get us wrong, Rachel Lindsay married Bryan Abasolo after a long engagement. But she and Raven Gates had a massive falling out.
Now, Colton Underwood is trying his hand at feuding and suggesting that Rachel must just hate everyone.
Rachel Lindsay’s falling out with former bestie Raven Gates was pretty conspicuous after Raven missed every stage of Rachel’s wedding.
So naturally, when Rachel appeared on Watch What Happens Live this week, fans got all kinds of nosy about it.
In fact, Andy reveals that it was the number one question that fans had to ask.
They asked her about that more than about her marriage to Bryan or about her thoughts on Peter as the 24th non-black Bachelor in a row.
So when it came time to take phoned-in questions, Rachel responded.
Rachel responds my shaking her head in chagrin.
“What did she do to cause your falling out?” Andy asks.
Rachel protests: “I can’t say. I promised I wouldn’t say.”
“But,” Rachel offers. “It was enough for me to not want to be friends with her anymore.”
“And you’re still not friends with her,” Andy asks for some almost pointless clarification.
“No,” Rachel confirms. “Not at all. And I never will be.”
Addressing it with Andy only made people more aware of Rachel and Raven’s falling out.
For some reason, another member of the Bachelor Fam decided to weigh in.
“Shocker,” Colton Underwood wrote on Instagram, his text dripping with sarcasm.
“Rachel mad at another person?” his sarcastic comment continued.
He then quits marveling in non-surprise and poses a semi-serious question.
Colton asks: “Does she like anyone?!”
(Raven and Rachel are both extremely hot, especially in some of the photos in this post, so you’re welcome for balancing it out with Colton)
Wait, does Colton have a beef with Rachel? When did that happen?
“I’m not weighing in on the Rachel/Raven drama,” Colton clarified.
And yet … that seems to be exactly what he chose to do.
“I could care less about that,” he emphasized. “Not my business.”
He then explains exactly why he decided to pipe up about Rachel being some sort of Negative Nelly.
“What is my business,” Colton wrote. “Is the countless number of times she’s spoke poorly of me…”
Countless times? It’s good to remember that not every Bachelor Fam conversation goes public.
He continued, accusing: “including that time she ran her mouth about me to Cassie…”
Oh, yeah, we could understand why he’d be annoyed about that.
“Funny thing is,” the previously virginal hunk concluded. “I have never met her.”
Naturally, you don’t have to have met someone to have an opinion — even a strong one — about them.
That’s sort of what the Bachelor franchise is all about. Sure, the stars look for love, but millions of viewers form opinions.
Rachel doesn’t have to meet Colton to decide that he’s, say, not the right man for Cassie to marry.
By that same token, Colton doesn’t have to meet Rachel to decide that she’s been uncharitable towards him.
Maybe they should hang out and get to know each other. We hear that Rachel is down a friend, anyway.
In the mean time, we’ll continue to wonder what in the world Raven could have done for Rachel to permanently excise her from her life.
