You've got to be kidding me. Just when we thought the drama was over and done with after this seasons of Bachelor in Paradise, Danielle Lombard dishes new deets about her romance with one, Dean Unglert.
Dean lost his untouchable, pretty-boy status on this season of Bachelor in Paradise as fans and foes alike were shocked at how he flip-flopped between two beautiful women on national TV. We last saw Dean being confronted by both Kristina and Danielle L on After the Final Rose where it was revealed he tried to get back together with both women after the show aired. Yikes....
Dean is the kind of person who changes his mind every couple of days, maybe even every couple of hours,” says Lombard. "He doesn't really know what he wants." Throughout Paradise Dean went from Kristina to Danielle to Kristina to Danielle to Kristina before finally dumping Kristina for Danielle...only days later for him to tearfully admit he was in love with Kristina, and broke up with Danielle. Lombard explains what really happened when someone yelled "cut!"
"I knew the situation between me, Kristina and [Dean] caused a lot of stress. I think in the back of my mind I knew it was a possibility that he would want to leave separately. It was still hard for me to hear, though. I was like, 'If he’s having doubts, I don’t want to get involved with someone like that. I rather he tell me now so we can move on separately.' But that’s not what happened afterwards."
"We left in separate vans to go back to the hotel. It’s funny because when I pulled up, there was another car in front of me and I was like, “I bet that’s Dean.” Sure enough, he gets out. I was like, “Screw this guy.” I got back to my hotel room and I think it was five minutes after I put my bags down that I got a phone call from him. I didn’t want to talk to him at all."
"I hung up on him several times before actually staying on the line. I gave it to him straight. I said, “You don’t know what you want. You made a complete fool of me on national television. You literally told me you loved someone else and now you’re calling me saying you want to hang out. I just don’t understand your thought process.” He told me that he was encouraged to say those things."
Lombard believes that Dean broke up with her to better his image before he went off camera, saying "I just think it was his way of saving face at the end of Paradise. He came over to my hotel room and we talked some more. As soon as we got back to L.A., we hung out with each other and started this off camera relationship that I thought was going in the right direction."
At the time, Lombard had no idea that Dean was reaching out to Kristina, as it was one of her main conditions of the two of them being together. Danielle didn't want to be double-crossed again after all the drama the couple went through this summer, though she admits," he was very good at making sure that we weren’t boyfriend and girlfriend or in an exclusive relationship.
As to where Dean and Danielle stand now? She doesn't hold back. "I’m definitely frustrated with him." says DLo. "I think he’s been very dismissive of our relationship and continues to allude that he only pursued me because of my looks. I’ve never been in a position or a relationship where I’ve felt so disrespected by someone. It’s frustrating because he told me he would have my back and stand up for me but at the end of the day, he just saves himself instead of being honest about things. It’s a lesson learned moving forward. I don’t hate him but I am disappointed."
Wow, I never thought I'd say this but, poor Danielle?? Guess pretty girls get treated like shit, too.
