Sarah Stone was shown in a taped interviewed on WKRN (Nashville ABC affiliate) this morning.
She said that she and Travis did in fact date after returning to Nashville. After the show began to air in January, they broke it off. They began to realize that they could not be a normal couple after all the media frenzy began. The reality of being on reality television began to sink in.
(To be truthful, they were all over the TV in the Nashville area during the run of the show and shortly thereafter. Reporters hung out at the YMCA, restaurants, etc. Sighting rumors were all around. The newspaper gave recaps after every show. When they did not surface after the Final Rose and then there was no AFR program, AND WKRN had nothing to say except that they knew nothing. I was caught up in the romance fairy tale and it was a disappointment.)
Sarah said that she and Travis do talk once a week and that they had a date before he moved to Colorado. She said they are friends. She said she is in a relationship now but there is "no ring on my finger".
About the ring that Travis gave her in the finale. It was provided by the show and that the true ownership now remains in question. She said that she can really say nothing about the ring until after March. (Do you think there are STILL contractual obligations/issues?)
Whether we liked Sarah or not on the show (I did like her) she came across as cute and genuine in the interview. I was glad to see her speak up and share a little bit about something we know so little of.
I do want to conclude to say that ALL of the FORT sleuthers are MARVELOUS! I really enjoy how you search and find out so much. I cannot wait to follow your comments and theories all season long!
*small voice* Yes, I know I said that I was through....but I obviously am interested in this show. So I recant my long ago post of saying "never again".
Am I forgiven for my lapse in judgment?
