Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay says watching the show is hard

As fans watch ABC’s “The Bachelorette” with bated breaths, Rachel Lindsey says watching the show might be the hardest part of the entire experience for her.

Lindsey already told the world she’s engaged. So that means her fiancé is watching everything she does with the other men. Awkward? Absolutely.

“That’s the hardest part of all of this,” she told Hot Topics. “This is the first time he’s seeing it play out. He hasn’t seen me go on dates with other men.”

She said her key to success is making sure she tells him everything before he sees it on television.

“No secrets. I don’t hold back,” Lindsay said.

Couples from “The Bachelorette” and “The Bachelor,” couples typically don’t last. What does she think makes her relationship different from the many others that have failed?

“The odds are definitely against us. I try not to compare myself to other ‘Bachelor’ or ‘Bachelorette’ relationships just because I could go down a rabbit’s hole doing that,” she told Hot Topics host Heather Catlin. “We have a different relationship, so I think that’s what will set us apart. We’re just different. I think if we focus on each other and keep the lines of communication open then we can move forward and have what we want at the end of this. Marriage, family -- that’s the goal.”

Watch Lindsey’s full interview with Hot Topics below.

On Thursday, Kasich appeared on “The View” and gave his opinions about the Katy Perry-Taylor Swift feud, surprising the show’s panel with his knowledge about music, celebrity spats and dropping names like former One Direction member Zayn Malik.

"We need your insight into a battle that has got this country just split right down the middle,” co-host Whoopi Goldberg began. “Can you explain what in the hell is going on … with Taylor Swift and Katy Perry?"

Kasich did not hesitate, saying it was “shocking to everybody.”

“Don’t ever steal anybody’s dancers, is the message," the governor said, referring to Perry’s admission on “The Late Late Show” this week about the pair’s alleged feud over shared backup dancers.

“Maybe they’re just trying to get some extra press, although I don’t know that Taylor Swift needs any more press,” Kasich said. “In fact, she kind of went into hiding, and now they say she’s going to reemerge with a new sound.”

Kasich, a 65-year-old father of twin 17-year-old girls, then spoke about Swift’s recent hit with Zayn, “I Don’t Want to Live Forever,” and her collaboration with former boyfriend Calvin Harris on “This is What You Came For.” 

“I will tell you, [Swift] met my wife and kids at a concert. She knew everything about my wife and my children. She was just unbelievably great,” Kasich said. “And Katy, you know, I have a friend that knows Katy Perry, and she’s very talented. So, two great pop artists.”

Kasich said his love of pop culture was a welcome break from the grind of politics. 

“You can do it ’til the day you die,” he said. “And I find it interesting, and I find it a nice break from the world of debates and all those kinds of things.”
