We talked more about what was going on behind the scenes than what happened as everyone involved moved in since that day. Also, we get into the franchise now and then we end up with a fun little trivia game for Jason. The Colton / Cassie situation begins with the podcast, but I saved most of it for today's column. So keep reading the rest of this page and page 2 to learn more about some of the misinformation media sites they are putting out and my thoughts on the whole situation. As always, if you wish to respond to the interview, please include Jason and / or Molly's Twitter identifiers (@jason_mesnick AND @MollyMesnick) in your responses. I can't consider it took me so lengthy to place them on, however I'm glad I did. I feel you’ll take pleasure in this dialog.

I used to be loopy final week at Bachelor Nation due to this Cassie / Colton scenario. It began final Friday when she filed for a short lived restraining order towards him. It was the primary time we discovered about it. You heard Colton on my podcast lower than a month in the past they usually have been apparently on good phrases. Nonetheless, behind the scenes, now we have now found that how he introduced himself on the podcast didn’t match how their relationship was going. In truth, virtually 180 completely different levels. I'm not mad at having Colton on the podcast. I’m pleased to have achieved it. He additionally had no thought on the time (or anybody however folks in that interior circle) of what was happening in his relationship with Cassie. All the things has come to gentle, and looking out again on the podcast, I clearly assume that now it got here with the agenda. As a result of after reviewing the TRO (non permanent restraining order), I can see now that the majority of those incidents that you’re studying about occurred earlier than August 11, which was the day I filmed with him. It sucks, however there's nothing I can do now aside from understand that he gave me lots of nonsense in that interview and that he received't do it once more.
So for individuals who could not have learn the tales or could not have learn, this is likely one of the first what was published. Then earlier this week, E! he left with a summary of what they learn within the TRO paperwork which can be public data within the Los Angeles court docket system. Right here's what I'll say about it: transcribing what SOME of the texts mentioned doesn't do it justice. They gave me the TRO. I’ve it in my possession. I’ve learn all 25 pages. Most of you could have seen the 2-page "abstract" of what Cassie alleges, however the final 10 pages are screenshots Cassie offered of the textual content messages Colton despatched to her, her brother, her buddy Linda, and her ex-boyfriend Caelan. Additionally included are textual content messages he despatched to her and himself which he later admitted to creating up himself. ME! The web resolution to solely transcribe sure phrases, phrases, and even some sentences doesn't inform the entire story. So any response of, "These aren't that dangerous" … Sorry, though we're all allowed to have an opinion, that's an uninformed one.
Except a few of you learn each textual content in each screenshot she offered, you received't get the total image. And when you don't have the entire image, however you're already taking part in decide, jury, and executioner on this, you're lacking the story. Individuals are at all times screaming that they received't consider something till they see the proof. THIS IS THE PROOF. Learn the TRO. And when you select to disregard it, then you might be 1) anti-Cassie 2) pro-Colton or three) a troll. As a result of nobody who’s impartial to both social gathering within the scenario, AND READS ALL THE WORDS IN EVERY CASSIE TEXT PROVIDED IN THE TRO, I don't assume I can objectively say that she is making this up. I don't assume Cassie needs to mislead a decide and court docket on issues like these. Name me loopy. Please assume rationally is all I'm asking for.
One of many issues that was additionally talked about in that E! Concerning what the texts mentioned, and plenty of different shops included it as a headline as effectively, it was one thing to the impact that Colton and Cassie have been filming a actuality present on the time this all occurred. Let's get one factor clear: that a part of the story that was leaked (apparently from folks at Colton's camp) is nothing greater than distracting from what Cassie introduced final Friday. What the hell? What does filming a actuality present must do with something associated to him sending harassing and / or threatening textual content messages and donning a monitoring gadget? I'll let you know: nothing. It’s a distraction. To not point out, leisure websites would goad you with lewd and deceptive headlines that made you assume they’d an excellent present within the works, they’d filmed tons of episodes, Cassie and Colton labored collectively each day, and so forth. Of every little thing I've heard from individuals who know, that couldn't be farther from the reality. This was a present that Colton got here to Cassie with, he put collectively AFTER she had COVID, it wasn't about them as a pair, and it was in regards to the two of them individually. To not point out that he hadn't been picked up by a internet, hardly something had been fired by him, Colton DID NOT again down, Cassie did, and the E! That Cassie's household was concerned was, as soon as once more, not true. Therefore the explanation Cassie's sister Michelle posted this to her IG story an hour after that story was posted:
So why is that this even a part of the narrative? Properly, I do know why Colton's facet (whoever it’s) determined to alert media websites with that, however come on, that has nothing to do with something. The opposite factor that distracts from his presentation was this "Colton has been to Colorado and hasn't talked to Cassie in a month" headline. Sure? AND? The TRO clearly states that Colton's harassment, texting, and monitoring gadget recognition occurred earlier than he left for Colorado. I feel August 16-19 was the final contact he reported on the TRO. So whereas he could have been in Colorado since then, it has nothing to do along with his actions earlier than he left.
Which begs the query that many individuals appear to be
blame the sufferer asking for Cassie, which is, "Why did you wait a month to use?" The truth that somebody asks that’s already an issue in itself and mainly solutions the query of why do girls wait to point out up. something. For concern that they won’t consider him. Why did you wait? I have no idea. Ask him. Maybe sooner or later he’ll handle it. My level is, ought to it matter? She filed her software on September 11 due to what she introduced within the TRO paperwork – she clearly felt insecure. The truth that it took you a month has nothing to do with whether or not it’s true or not. If her thoughts needs to go there and she or he's already pondering, "Look, it took her a month to provide you with the entire plan, therefore why she waited," then you’re a misplaced trigger and you aren’t pondering objectively. I'm certain as soon as Cassie can communicate publicly about it, possibly she'll reply that for you curious folks, though she actually shouldn't must. If the truth that she is scared and afraid of being harassed just isn’t a adequate reply for you as to why it took her a month to file the report, I suppose you’ll have to discover another excuse for the sufferer guilty her.
