Chris is Mike Fleiss' minion. Looks like the fat might hit the fire next week. Is she going to feel betrayed and no one had her back.....we'll see.I am assuming that that was Cassie that they showed in the clip for next week. I have to say that Cassie does not look like I had imagined she would. I found her to be rather plain looking, and I had envisioned just the opposite. If she were my friend, I would be even more upset with her that SHE hadn't told me that she once dated Arie BEFORE he was even cast on the show. If she had been upfront, then it would have been Emily's call whether or not Arie was one of the bachelors. That is what real friends do. Cassie is not a true friend though.
Chris Harrison is not Emily's friend either. But, I hope that they will show the full unedited conversation between Arie and Emily so that we can hear if he says that he did not mention his past relationship with Cassie, because he had been reassured that Emily had been informed about it, and she had no problem with it. I say this because that it one of the theories that has been tossed around.
But, in my mind, this reeks of producer manipulation, so were all of them in on it, including Emily? Or did they need drama so badly that they set Emily up in order to get her raw emotional reaction - AFTER she had already formed some feelings for Arie? Or was Arie in on the whole setup, or was he also blindsided with the revelation that Emily did not know about Cassie? There are so many ways that this could have gone down. But, you have to give it to the producers, they have the audience wondering, so I bet that there will be a spike in the number of viewers for next Monday's episode, don't you think?
