I remember when I got this email, I was in the middle of all the Rozlyn craziness and I emailed this girl back saying something like “I got your email, I want to talk to you about this, but gimmie some time.” Well, I never got back to her. Had too much stuff going on last season. So when I heard about a month ago about this scandal and a guy going on the show to promote his wrestling career even though he had a girlfriend back home, I put two and two together and realized this email had to be from Jessica. So I tried emailing her back at this address but haven’t heard from her. Obviously, she’s under ABC’s lock and key now so there’s no way she’ll respond to me. All you need to do is ask yourself this question: If Jessica is some paid actress or someone they hired to go along with this storyline, do you honestly think out of ALL the people in the world, they would want her contacting Reality Steve to tell her story to? Didn’t think so. Now, Justin seems like he had an agenda from the beginning, but Jessica was out of the loop. Well, she was dumb for agreeing let her boyfriend go on the show in the first place, but she was not part of the storyline originally and had planned on keeping her mouth shut. That is, until she found out about Kimberly.
If the story couldn’t get any weirder, apparently when Jessica contacted Jessie to tell her to put her in touch with someone at ABC, she found out that Jessie and Kimberly knew each other from events they had worked together in Toronto. So once I found all this out about a third girl, I contacted Kimberly to find out what she could tell me about the scandal. And she pretty much laid it out for me. When I asked her role in all this, our email exchange went like this. First her response to what happened:
“well, basically, i was dating justin up until he went on the show. about a week after he had left, i got a msg from a girl claiming to be justin’s girlfriend of a year and a half. she said she had found me after looking at his fb and reading our messages and etc. i didn’t believe her at first, but we exchanged stories, messages, photos etc. and we found out it was true that he was dating us at the same time. needless to say he’s a really good liar and a master manipulator.”
I then asked Kimberly if ABC tried to contact her. Her response:
“they contacted jessica. his long term gf. the producers thought having 2 girls be part of the show would be too much drama and sound far fetched. even tho it was the truth.”
I followed up with, “So what do you think made Jessica come forward and out Justin to the show?” Her answer:
“the only reason why jessica confronted Ali was because she found out about me. and she was going to wait for justin to come back home and continue their relationship (i was also planning on doing the same, until i found out about Jessica). but once she knew he was already cheating on her she felt the need to confront Ali so he didnt get away with his games anymore. we wanted to confront Ali together, but the producers didnt want that.”
Finally I told her she’s gotta realize that people will criticize her (as well as Jessica) for knowingly letting your “boyfriend” go on a show like this saying you’ll wait til he gets back. I asked her how in the world she had no clue Justin was seeing someone else while he was with her. Her response:
“and i was so sure he didnt have a gf cuz he said it was in his contract that he was not allowed to have a gf. so why would i even think he did have another gf. he said he was single b4 he met me cuz of the show. and i let him go on the show cuz he said it was a career move and we would get back together once he was done filming.”
There you have it. That’s the crazy, convoluted Justin “Rated R” Rego scandal. I’m sure there’s probably even more, but those are the basics of what you need to know. Ummmmm, I told you women were gonna hate his ass. The guy basically got caught with his pants down and has no one to blame but himself. I don’t necessarily condone what the women did either, but hey, it’s not like it’s the first time a girl back home let her boyfriend do the show. It’s just that this one happened to find out he was boning someone else on the side and decided to do something about it. So for that, I actually applaud her. Judging by that email she sent me back in January, you could tell that Jessica definitely thought this guy was the cat’s pajamas. Uhhhhh, not anymore I’m guessing. But hey, if you wanna join Justin’s Facebook Fan Page, go right ahead!
I think the biggest question to ponder in all of this, is when Ali was actually informed about Justin having a girlfriend. Obviously the producers knew well before they set up that 2-on-1 date with Kasey and Justin in Iceland. That’s obvious. Which then makes me believe Ali was told to keep Justin around on that date because they knew they had this bombshell waiting for them in Turkey. Only Ali and the producers know for sure, but it’s fairly obvious. Maybe they told her right before that date to keep Justin around, but never told her why. Then maybe they told her about what was going to happen with the phone call and Justin on the plane ride over to Turkey. Or maybe they told her once they touched down in Turkey. I don’t know. All I know is, she had to have known sometime before she walked in that room with Chris Harrison and a phone about to ring up Jessie Sulidis from last season, someone I don’t even know if Ali’s was friends with. If I had to guess, I’d say they nudged her to keep Justin around on the 2-on-1, then told her on the way to Turkey, or right when they landed that a phone call was going to be made and she would have to speak to his girlfriend. Since we all know Ali has no problem faking phone calls, as she did last season with Jake. But that’s just my guess. Hey, when you’re getting paid six figures to be the “Bachelorette”, you pretty much do what they tell you to do.
Of course, we’ll probably never get an answer to this because ABC won’t touch this subject with a ten foot pole. If I were able to ask Ali anything, that’d be my first question: At what point were you informed about Justin having a girlfriend and this phone call was being made? Because I’m a fan of Ali, I’ll give her the benefit of the doubt and say the producers had much, much more to do with hiding this from her than she did in knowing. That’s my guess. I mean, Justin and Kasey in a 2-on-1 right before the phone call shakes down? Please. Very, very obvious why those two were put on the same date and why Justin was the one who got the rose. They definitely knew well beforehand about Justin having a girlfriend, it’s just a matter of when they let Ali in on it. ABC/Mike Fleiss/Martin Hilton/Next Entertainment– the master manipulators. At it again this season. Frauds. Sorry guys, but you’ve been exposed once again. Boom goes the dynamite!
So I’m sure you still probably have some questions regarding all these spoilers. I thought I covered everything, but maybe there’s some stuff I left out or wasn’t clear on. Any questions you have email me at my contact information at the top of the page, and I will use those questions in a Q&A sometime later this week. Rather than write what I think I might’ve missed, you just ask me what you want to know and we’ll go from there. Deal? As I said on Twitter last week, this season is going to be a shitstorm. Gonna be nuts watching this all play out. Talk to you soon.
