On tonight’s episode of “The Bachelorette” in Prague, it comes to Emily Maynard’s attention that the show’s frontrunner, Arie Luyendyk, had a bit of a past with the show’s producer, Cassie Lambert. She was said to be miffed upon learning the news, thinking that he was keeping it from her. Will Arie get the boot from the competition as a result?
Their relationship was from 2003 and as it turns out, not that serious, according to Wetpaint. Arie’s best friend, Kristina Owen calls BS on any reports that suggest that Arie and Cassie had some long, drawn-out courtship.
She said, “People assume it was this really intense, long-term relationship – but that’s not the case. The whole thing has been blown way out of proportion. It was in 2003 so Arie was really young. She was an Indiana girl and knew a lot about racing. She drank beer and hung with the boys. But Arie told me it was never a relationship. Like I said, I’ve been one of his best friends for ages and I’ve never even heard her name until now.”
Do you think that Arie still has a chance on the show? Or will Emily show him the door because she feels as if the trust is gone? Who are you rooting for?
