Actually, she didn't confirm or deny this. It appeared she was dancing around the whole confidentiality clause, because she didn't directly answer Vieira's question. Trish replied, "You'll, you'll never know..." Then Elisabeth interrupted her. Trish continued, "You know, you never know, and 'stalker' is a little bit heavy when it describes me." Then the hosts all started talking at once. Star said "She can't be a stalker when there's a camera gonna be there."

I can't picture Trish being the next bachelorette. If she is, the show would have to be aired on late night HBO, not on ABC.

I'll give her that too. She's got to be strong to be able to take all the heat she's getting. Geez, it would be too much for almost anyone I'd think, unless she's really an actress trying to advance her career. Which she could be.

She probably thought it would be taken as funny, her being the older, been-around-the-block one. And it backfired with all the gossipy, sorority types and Trish found herself isolated and the anti-hero of the whole show. To the exclusion of any possible romance. Because there doesn't actually seem to be any.
I used to work with someone just like Trish. She loved to talk about her exploits -- sex with married men, affairs with women, etc. She came across as brash and intimidating, but she was a really, really good person. Just very insecure and she got her validation from men her whole life. The classic daddy complex.
I don't know Trish. It just seems people are being awfully hard on the girl. As others have said, she has a past, we all do. And maybe she shouldn't have blabbed about it, but does she really need to be crucified for it?
Dunno, I hate to see her being called a skank and a ho by other women. I'm pretty sexually conservative myself, but isn't feminism about women making choices and then taking responsibility for them? Which Trish seems to be doing.
Is the price really that high for women who make less socially accepted choices? Can't we not view her through a moral compass?
K, off my soapbox now.
What the BLEEP do we know
It sounded to me like she was sort of confirming that the Producers had a hand in it simply by not denying it - she said something about "there are things I can't talk about."

Also, we've had to suffer through all of the attention being on Trish and not getting to know the other girls - now it's finally down to three girls who don't include Trish, and she's STILL going to take up half the show!!!
The producers must have realized they have one heck of a boring season if they thought bringing a stalker into it was the only way to keep people's attention!!!!!
I like them silent
I think Trish and Omarossa would make a great couple!
Yeah, that was the another subtle clue. It was part of her stumbling response to Elisabeth's question about why did she go back. I think she wanted to say more but seemed afraid to run afoul of ABC.

They can't really think the viewers buy into her being a stalker. Bold and a bit desperate on Trish's part, and totally insensitive to Mandy - on Trish's and the producers' part. Yeah, this is reality TV and just about anything goes in the name of entertainment and ratings, but ABC and Fliess have crossed the line of credibility and fairness, imo.

meridith said that they made her look stupid cause she teased the fact that the next elimated girl from the bachelor was gonna be on and then right after they are off the air they show a promo for tomorrows show and it says "and trish from the bachelor". meridith goes on to say how they were flooded with emails about it. then the producer guy that sits in the front row said he was sorry.
