The latest rumor in the "Bachelorette" drama is that villain Bentley Williams, who stomped on Ashley Hebert's heart in the last episode, is being considered as the next "Bachelor"! Not so fast...
Sources tell "Extra" it's not true. Even "Bachelor" producer Cassie Lambert tweeted, "I can't imagine that ever happening. Bachelors are supposed to be desirable!"
"Extra's" Adrianna Costa talked with former "Bachelorette" bad boy Wes Hayden via Skype at his home in Nashville, who weighed-in on the casting. "I don't think he'd make a good 'Bachelor' at all."
"The Bachelorette" Jillian Harris found love with Ed -- but admits to "Extra" that there is one thing that she regrets about the process of finding love.
Harris tells "Extra" that the one thing she did wrong was keeping bad boy Wes around so long. "The longer I kept him, it made him look worse and it made me look worse," Jillian explained.
Wes filmed a video message to the happy couple via "Extra" -- where he insists that the man he appeared to be on television isn't the person he really is. "I'm not the guy you saw on the TV show everybody who knows me knows that," Wes said, adding, "I hope everything works out for them... and don't forget to send me the wedding invitation."
After watching the message, Ed replies, "Yeah Wes, you'll definitely get an invitation." Jillian adds jokingly, "Don't worry Wes, you'll be at the wedding. Somebody has to play 'Love Don't Come Easy.'"
This morning, Jillian and Ed sat down with Anderson Cooper on "Regis and Kelly" -- where the news reporter (filling in for Regis Philbin) asked Harris how many of the suitors she slept with!
When asked about her reaction to the question, Jillian told "Extra" she was shocked. "I think it just came out of his mouth and I don't think he knew what he was asking until we were all like, 'What did you just ask?' Yeah that's a sensitive subject -- we don't really talk about that."
Still, Jillian is thankful for her experience on "The Bachelorette" because it led her to Ed. "I did some things right, some things wrong, but I ended up with the person I know I'm gonna spend the rest of my life with."
He was accused of having a girlfriend and of appearing on "The Bachelorette" to further his singing career and not to fall in love with Jillian Harris -- but Wes Hayden says he's not the villain portrayed on the reality TV show.
"People are saying things and they don't even know me," Hayden tells the New York Daily News. He adds, "It's hurtful that they have a perception that isn't true. They edited and clipped me. They were basically creating a character from the beginning," says the Houston native.
Wes confesses, "I didn't have a girlfriend when I went on, I don't have one now." He does admit his manager suggested being on "The Bachelorette" would be good for his career as a country musician, but his sister was the one who applied for him to be on the show.
"I told her I feel like I'm in quicksand, that every time I try and move forward with you, we have to talk over whether I'm there for publicity or I've got a girlfriend," the country cutie explains about his relationship with Harris. "Looking back, I feel I never had a chance from the moment I stepped out of the limo. I've got tattoos, spiky hair and I'm a musician. I think I was picked to be the guy people love to hate."
