“The Bachelor” star Sean Lowe was in the hot seat on Monday night as he faced the women he dumped on the show’s “Women Tell All” reunion. But on March 5 he set the record straight on what went down with AshLee Frazier, who accused him of telling her he had no feelings for the final two women, Lindsay Yenter and Catherine Guidici.
On his March 5 blog for People, Sean wrote that while he was saddened that AshLee referred to him as a “frat boy” and was disappointed that he didn’t come and check on her after he sent her packing, he reiterated how the show works.
“Once you don't receive a rose, you know you only get a brief moment to talk it over before going home. She wasted that moment by not saying a word ….I don't want to sound unsympathetic, but that's how the show works,” he wrote,
He also added that he felt that if he had checked in with her later it “would have only delayed her healing process by sending her mixed signals.”
As for AshLee’s on-air accusation that Sean told her he didn’t have feelings for the other two women – one of whom he is currently engaged to-- Sean wrote:
“Let me set the record straight – I never said that. I would never say that. It just doesn't make sense. Of course I had feelings for the other two women. That's been apparent for weeks! And not only did I have feelings for them, I was falling in love with them … In that moment on WTA, I felt like it was an attack on my character, so I began to get defensive. I was so stunned by the accusation that I was speechless.”
Frazier still stands by her story. During a commercial break the cameras continued to roll and footage was shown of her trying to remind Sean of what was said behind closed doors during their fantasy suite date.
“You just don’t remember, Sean. But don't say you didn't [say it],” she told him. “But you did.”
Meanwhile, Sean seemed to be in good spirits despite the alleged attack on his character. After the “Women Tell All” episode aired he tweeted, “Just for the record, I take great offense to the frat guy comment. I don't even own Sperrys.”
Philadelphia area viewers can catch the three-hour season finale of “The Bachelor” on March 11 at 8:00 p.m. on WPVI Channel 6.
