The Bachelor's Cassie Randolph slammed for talking about Colton Underwood, fans say 'she just wants to be on TV'
Cassie Randolph joined host Chris Harrison on 'The Bachelor: The Greatest Seasons — Ever!' on Monday night (July 6) to speak about her breakup with Colton Underwood, the star from The Bachelor's Season 23. She made an appearance on the episode for the 'Bachelor in Quarantine' segment but didn't give many details regarding her break up as a sign of respect for Underwood. However, fans of the show are not impressed by her and believe that she's trying to stay relevant.
"Sitting here watching Cassie talk about her and Colton break up makes me cringe. She doesn’t care about him and never have. She only cares about herself #TheBachelorGOAT," wrote a fan. While another wrote, "Cassie just wanted to remain relevant since she is no longer with Colton. Making sure she is not forgotten. #TheBachelorGOAT". Another fan wrote,"#TheBachelorGOAT Cassie really wants to be on TV. Cause otherwise why come on to “not talk about it”?? @chrisbharrison said it seemed like she & Colton were just good friends. Translation: we all still think he’s gay & can’t admit it."
Randolph and Underwood got together on Season 23 of 'The Bachelor' that aired in 2019. The much in love couple were sheltering together in quarantine however on May 29 they announced that they were no longer together as a couple. Speaking about it on the episode tonight, Randolph said, “I think we honestly had a really great relationship the entire time, and we got along really well."
The California beauty was not ready to part with any details regarding what caused her breakup while citing it as a "sensitive" subject to speak about. “It’s a sensitive subject because I feel like we’re still kinda going through it, and it’s still pretty emotional for both of us. We haven’t really talked about it publicly yet and I don’t know if either of us is ready, but I will say it’s been really hard,” Randolph said. She continued, “I think going through any break up is really hard but going through one in public comes with a whole new set of challenges. I mean, I’ve never gone through any of this before so we’re both kind of learning to navigate it. We’re on good terms and hanging in there.”
In the end, she added, “I kind of want to respect him in that way too and not talk a lot about it, but I don’t think there’s anything that I left out of our conversation that I need people to know." Randolph chose to limit her words and carefully tread on the topic of their breakup after her outburst on Instagram last week. Speaking about her breakup for the first time after a 30-day social media hiatus, she wrote, “Ok all you mother ffers hating on me for my breakup-please stop. It’s been an awful few months for ME trying to go thru it. I’m STILL going thru it. It’s hard enough w/out your know-it-all comments. You literally know nothing so go away,” she wrote at the time.
