She’s accepting his rose — er, olive department.
Rachel Lindsay has formally accepted Chris Harrison’s newest apology over their contentious “Further” interview — on “Further,” no much less.
Requested by Billy Bush what she considered Harrison’s protection of Lindsay after she was basically compelled off Instagram by militant “Bachelor Nation” factions, Lindsay stated, “I wasn’t anticipating him, you already know, to deal with what’s been occurring with me as a result of that is the primary time we’ve heard from Chris, however the truth that he did tackle the harassment and the hate that I’ve been receiving, I actually respect that.”
Bush continued, asking, “As for the general apology, do you settle for it?”
“I do settle for the apology,” Lindsay, 35, stated, “and I feel it’s necessary for me to say that as a result of I haven’t actually talked about, you already know, Chris and the assertion as a result of I’m not attempting to make this a Chris-versus-Rachel, however … this isn’t the primary time he’s apologized to me — he apologized once more on ‘GMA’ immediately and I do settle for that and I feel it’s necessary for me to say that as a result of we have to transfer ahead.”
“And for me, for us to maneuver ahead,” she continued, “I would like to just accept the apology, so we are able to all be higher from this case, which is what we wish.”
Prompted by Bush as to what “shifting ahead” would appear like, Lindsay answered, “There are numerous points which have come up due to this interview, and I feel it’s necessary that we proceed the dialog, we proceed to maneuver ahead. And I feel that’s the most effective factor that we are able to hope for out of all of this.”
It’s the most recent growth within the wartime Russian novel that’s the post-pandemic “Bachelor/ette” franchise, which has variously seen a contestant exit a season early and ultimately break up with the individual she left the season for and a contestant’s problematic previous engagement with Antebellum signifiers surfaced.
It was the latter — Rachael Kirkonnell being the contestant — that Harrrison, 49, was linked with. He invoked the phrase “woke police” in an interview with Lindsay whereas questioning whether or not Kirkonnell’s participation in an Outdated South-themed social gathering was a “unhealthy look in 2018.” (Kirkconnell made her personal apology.)
Harrison stepped away after stepping in it, however has stated he’ll be again. Web page Six is duly on tenterhooks.
