I think by next summer when filming for "The bachelorette" would take place , would be enough time to heal inbetween this mess.Originally Posted by Secret;2687676;I wouldn't necessarily reach that conclusion, Lynn. If you read the whole article, I get the impression that it's more the response of someone who has (unfortunately) been drinking deep of the "The Bachelor" as a process kool aid. She speaks in glowing terms of the producers. She was in contact with them frequently after the show finished taping, as she was watching everything play out, etc. because the producers and her father were the only people she could talk to about everything.
I actually blame them, in addition to Brad, for possibly keeping hope alive that Brad may "come to his senses" or give it another try.
Also, as you can see above, she also said very clearly that she believes "the process" works - it worked for her, she fell in love with Brad. It sounds like she's confident it could work again, but it sounds incredibly hypothetical at this point. She still seems VERY hung up on Brad and also very hurt. I do not think she was acting. I would think and hope that she'd think twice before she put herself through the wringer again. Honestly, the thought of her doing it makes me cringe because if the show would film this spring? I don't think she'd have enough distance from this screwed up experience to be ready for the next screwed up experience.
Didn't Trista and Meredith have far more time between their seasons ending and the start of taping the Bachelorette?
