On April 21, news broke that Madison Prewett revealed Bachelor Peter Weber asked her to get back together just days before he was spotted with ex-contestant Kelley Flanagan. Obviously, this was a huge bombshell.
“He was, like, calling me and texting me being like, ‘I miss you, let’s get back together,’” Prewett told Kaitlyn Bristowe on her Off the Vine podcast, according to Us Weekly. “I mean, I think that to me was a little confusing, but I think, like, when you break up and you’re going through a heartbreak and you just came off a show that was emotionally, physically, and [every] which way exhausting, everybody handles that differently. Everybody leans on different things.” She added that it felt like a personal jab when the photos of Weber and Flanagan came out on her birthday.
Weber swiftly replied to Prewett’s comments. “You’d think you’d have a little more respect for this situation given we both know there’s more to the story,” Weber wrote in an Instagram comment, tagging Prewett.
This isn’t the only controversial Bachelor moment Prewett touched on during her interview with Bristowe. She also had a lot to say about the infamous showdown between her and Weber’s mom, Barb, during the “After the Final Rose” special. The couple, as you know, broke up just days later after a “super sad” six-hour conversation.
Now Prewett is finally ready to talk about how she felt in that moment during the live show with Barb. “I wish that I would have just apologized and been apologetic in that moment,” Prewett admitted to Bristowe, per Us Weekly. “I think I was so taken back and I was so hurt by the things that were being said to me in this time that was so beautiful for me and Peter.”
Prewett added that they had “overcome so much” and were “trying to fight so hard” for their relationship at the time. “For that opportunity to kind of be taken from the both of us…for that to be the ending of the season, I mean, I walked off that stage and I had never cried harder in my life,” she said.
Who knows if we’ll hear from Barb about all this in the days to come, but I hope the group can finally put this all behind them.
