TV DIVAGAL EXCLUSIVE: The Bachelorette's Wes Hayden Tells All

By   |   July 17, 2009   |   Entertainment

The Bachelorette‘s Wes Hayden has been out defending his reputation after his boot from the reality dating series, including an exclusive interview with the NY Daily News, written by yours truly.

There’s a lot more to Wes’ story, so read on!

He Won’t Be Appearing on The Men Tell All Show Monday Night
. “I was scared to go back and have them do anything else to me that was damaging,” Wes admits, though he did have second thoughts about his decision not to return. “After watching my [elimination] show, I realized I needed to be there,” but the offer was no longer on the table, according to Wes.

He Thinks Twice Now When Meeting New People
. Wes points out his portrayal on the show has poisoned some people’s perception when they first meet. “ItΓÇÖs been hurtful, you donΓÇÖt know if they are going to throw something or cuss you out, and thatΓÇÖs a horrible feeling.” Wes stresses when people do get a chance to get to know him, they’re pretty surprised by the outcome. “Last week, I was playing a gig, and it was a packed house. After I got through shaking hands and taking pictures, so many people came up to me and said, ‘I came here a Wes hater, now IΓÇÖm leaving a fan.”

Even Though His Band Members Are Married, He’s Not Feeling The Pressure To Wed. “I told the [Bachelorette] producers if I make it to the top two or┬á three and I donΓÇÖt feel IΓÇÖm ready to get married, IΓÇÖm not going to get married just for the sake of┬á a TV show wanting someone to propose,” Wes spills. “When I get down on one knee and ask someone to marry me, itΓÇÖs going to be for real. I think marriage is a very serious thing.”

He Wants Everyone To Leave His Ex Alone. Wes says his ex-girlfriend has become a calamity of his reality experience. “SheΓÇÖs going through hell right now as well. People are posting her phone number on the internet and calling her all hours of the night. She has called me a few times crying,” he says. “If you Google her business, the first thing that comes up is to boycott it. This has really done a number on her, and she didnΓÇÖt agree to it at all.”

(TV Divagal concurs. People, leave the girl out of this mess!)

He May Get Back With His Ex… Someday. “My ex-girlfriend is a very good friend. SheΓÇÖs one of my best friends, maybe one of the only people I can trust,” Wes confides. “I told Jake [Pavelka] the reason we broke up wasnΓÇÖt because I didnΓÇÖt love her, we just fundamentally didnΓÇÖt have the same morals, beliefs and values. If we got married, it would never work. I told him I didnΓÇÖt know what the future holds, I didnΓÇÖt know if one day we would get back together. I told him thereΓÇÖs no guarantees.”

He’ll Never be The Bachelor
. “I donΓÇÖt believe in it,” Wes candidly declares. “I want to get as far away from it as I can.”

Catch The Bachelorette, The Men Tell All, Monday, July 20 at 8 p.m. on ABC.
