    The problem with rag mags is that when people like what is printed then they think they are reliable, and when people don't like it they like to drag out all the former stories that were wrong

    Found it.

    Chris Harrison blogs ‘The Bachelorette’: ‘The Final Rose’ and ‘After the Final Rose’ « To Give and Share

    I was happy to be that friend. If she had sat down and told me that Reid was the man she loved and wanted to be with, that would have been fine by me as well, but that’s not what she wanted. If you ask me to be honest about it, I have to admit for a moment there I really thought she was going to take Reid back. I’ll be interested to hear your opinion of what Reid pulled.

    I found where Chris made that remark about Reid in his last blog of the season at the end of July following the Finale and AFTR, so you don't need to look any further. Thanks anyway.

    Sorry, but my reply to you was just a little late - by a few minutes!!!

    No one at ABC liked it that Wes began exposing their dirty little secrets by making the rounds with the media in a effort to get his side of the story out there. Both Chris and Fleiss have made some snide comments about Wes since the Finale.

    But you are right. All these guys continuing to hang out together and to rally around each other DOES speak louder than Chris' postshow tweeting, blogging and incessant drivel.

    More from the ‘Bachelorette’ reunion

    By Claudia Grisales | Tuesday, August 11, 2009, 01:42 PM

    Five contestants from the last season of “The Bachelorette” reunited Monday night at Ranch 616 in Austin to talk with fans about the show and what’s happened in their lives since filming wrapped.

    Mike Stagliano The former break-dance instructor, says he was heartbroken for more than two months after he was booted from the show before reaching the final four men fighting to win Harris in the end.

    Then, at a wrap party following the show’s “Men Tell All” episode, Stagliano says he met his true love: “Bachelor” alum Holly Durst.

    “I’m gonna marry her,” the 25-year old says with a smile on his face.

    Stagliano said Durst, who appeared on “The Bachelor” as a potential suitor for Matt Grant, has met his parents and they love her.

    For now, the two are commuting to see each other, Durst from her Los Angeles area home and Stagliano from his home in Queens.

    Stagliano, who is a children’s book author as well, says sales for his “Wesley’s Stories: Afterschool Adventures,” have picked up since his appearance on the show. He’s now working on his second book.

    “I’m so thankful,” Stagliano said.

    Jesse Kovacs Kovacs, who comes from a winemaking family, says life has stayed busy since he left the show’s filming, and hasn’t slept in the same bed for more than three days.

    His family received 75 wine orders the day after an episode showing Kovacs booted from the show aired.

    The Carmel Valley, Calif. resident says that for now he’s spreading himself thin doing appearances and traveling, because he knows this won’t last forever.

    He’s also doing his part to promote Kovacs Brothers wine, offering samples at Ranch 616 last night.

    “It’s been crazy since the show ended,” he said.

    David Good Much like Austinite Wes Hayden, Good, 33 has been on his own mission to clean up his name, after he was portrayed as angry and often drunk on the show.

    Good says he and Hayden had something in common: They were raw with their comments, which made for good television.

    “People can hate on Wes and I, but we tell it like it is,” he said.

    Good said he’s also working on a book about the “man code,” a heavily discussed topic on this past season’s “Men Tell All” episode.

    At one point, Good told host Chris Harrison not to mention the phrase anymore after a debate on whether it was appropriate to let Harris in on details about other men possibly having girlfriends.

    But now, Good claims that there’s a lot more to the “man code,” and it’s about doing what’s right “for your family, your country and your friends.”

    But Good still takes time out to bash some of his former castmates from the show, including Jake Pavelka, who came across as a squeaky-clean pilot from Dallas.

    “Jake is a complete fake person,” he said. “People don’t like you (referring to Jake), because you’re a nerd!”

    Tanner Pope Pope has left his contract position as a project manager for a financial firm in Dallas and has hired a publicist to look into doing television work or endorsement deals. Fans might wonder if that means becoming a nail-polish spokesman. After all, Pope was portrayed as the foot-fetish fiend on the past season of “The Bachelorette.”

    The Dallas native, however, says there is more to him than a foot obsession, however. Pope says he’s 30, and he’s ready to find true love. Pope said he got off on the ‘wrong foot’ with Harris, talking to her about other men on the show. Pope is nephew of Austin developer Tom Stacey.

    Stacey bought Pope a classy, Versace-laden wardrobe from Austin store Keepers for his appearance on the show, Pope said.

    He said that after a scene with Pope stripping down to his undies in front of the other men and Harris, he got an offer to do porn, which he turned down.

    For now, he’s enjoying the attention he gets.

    “I get recognized now,” he said. “So it’s cool.”

    Wes Hayden Weeks after Hayden launched his own public-relations fight to save his name, the Austinite says all has gotten better for him.

    Hayden was portrayed as the ultimate villain on this season’s “The Bachelorette,” and he and the show went their separate ways after he began publicly criticizing his treatment on the show.

    He use to receive hundreds of hate-mail messages, which have now all but ceased, he said.

    He’s also resumed his music career with his band, and run into little trouble, especially since tales of Swiderski dating other women surfaced.

    “Everything is really good,” he said. “I’m happy, music is great, and everything has changed.”

    Hayden, however, won’t hesitate to take another shot at the show. Referring to Swiderski’s situation, he said “that just goes to show you the show is bull(expletive).

    You have to figure a lot of them were there to see the guys, not hear the music.

    I am so glad that Wes has finally found some vindication in all of this. It gives me faith in karma.

    You know, I thought Wes was a real jerk on the show, but I now think he might never have had a gf in the first place and it was Ed all along. However, I can't get past him telling Jake that he did and I definitely believe Jake. Maybe Wes was just bragging (lying). I kind of think he really did start to have feelings for Jill during the show. I thought I'd never say this, but today in my eyes, Wes is a saint compared to Ed. Of the two guys, Ed is the really slick talker, liar that he is.

    I really do want to think well of my fellow Texan though.
