“Bachelor in Paradise” fans have been loving the fact that two of the show’s stars — Ashley Iaconetti and Jared Haibon – are engaged to be married after originally meeting on the set of the show back in 2015. Yet, the journey to love hasn’t always been easy, as Iaconetti recently admitted on her podcast.
And yes, this love triangle involves none other than her ex-boyfriend Kevin Wendt.
“I was dating Kevin like out in the real world for two weeks and Jared came out about his feelings and he kissed me in the airport,” Iaconetti says. “And we had mentioned this before — I admitted before I was dating Kevin when Jared kissed me. Whether you call that cheating that is up to you, by most definitions that is true.”
Well, alrighty then.
“But, it was one of the moments of passion, one of those actions — he pulled me in, I kissed him back,” Iaconetti continues. “I never kissed him again until Kevin and I broke up after my birthday on March 6.”
Are y’all confused?
We feel ‘ya.
The good news is that this couple looks to have put that bump in the road behind them, with Iaconetti even saying that she’s sees it all as a blessing.
“I could not have been here if it weren’t for meeting Kevin,” Iaconetti says. “Jared even says, ‘Hey if it weren’t for him who knew how long it would have taken.’”
