‘Bachelorette’ Kaitlyn Bristowe: ‘Not ashamed’ of having sex on the show.

Trista Sutter, ABC’s first Bachelorette, tells Us Weekly fans should stop slut-shaming Kaitlyn Bristowe after she admitted to having sex with a contestant. On Tuesday night’s episode, viewers were shocked when an extended promo for this season revealed that the newly crowned Bachelorette slept with one of her suitors weeks before the “fantasy suite” stage of the dating competition. In light of this scandalous revelation, Bristowe sat with ET’s Nancy O’Dell on Wednesday to reveal why she’s “not ashamed” of what was caught on the “Bachelorette” cameras. “I don’t think that’s a crazy thing to sleep with somebody when you’re trying to be in a relationship with them,” the brunette beauty explained. “I’m a 30-year-old woman and I make my own decisions and intimacy to me is a part of every relationship and I don’t know why everyone is so shocked by it. On Tuesday, the night part two of the new season of The Bachelorette aired, Marquel Martin, who competed with Nick for Andi Dorfman on the previous season, posted a tweet that proclaimed that he’s Team Nick. It’s 2015.” “I’m an in-the-moment kind of person,” she continued. “I tried to compartmentalize each relationship and be present with each guy, and some went faster than others and some went slower than others.” O’Dell’s pressing caused Bristowe to admit that her late-night rendezvous happened after she and the mystery man had shared “a few” dates together.

Chatting with Us days after Bristowe’s season teaser hit the Internet – and showed Bristowe after a sexy romp in the sheets with an unknown contestant – Sutter wants Bachelorette fans to cut her a break. “[The trailer] is getting people to talk, but what needs to stay at the top of this conversation is that no matter who you are and the mistakes you’ve made, everyone has feelings,” Sutter told Us while promoting the May 31 premiere of her HGTV show (with hunky firefighter hubby Ryan!) Rocky Mountain Reno on Friday, May 22. While you might not have face-to-face interaction with all of your followers, the way you present yourself online directly affects people’s opinion of your brand.

You might be surprised at the amount of companies, even the big ones, that don’t quite understand this simple fact and have posted inappropriate updates that made light of important events or misused certain hashtags. We know it was brought up, but we don’t know [the context],” Sutter, 42, told Us, calling to mind the 2014 Bachelor in Paradise episode that was edited to take a conversation Clare Crawley had with a producer and make it look like she was talking to a raccoon. “Yes, Kaitlyn used the word sex, but it doesn’t mean that she had sex with 25 or 30 guys!” Sutter said. “Bottom line, as someone who has gone through it, is that whatever Kaitlyn did on her journey is her business.

Viewers have already seen the first couple of episodes where Kaitlyn Bristowe was chosen over Britt Nilsson, though spoilers indicate that Britt does find love this season too. I wish people would be more compassionate.” Former contestant Erica Rose also sides with Sutter. “When I was on it [in The Bachelor’s season nine], no one even talked about [sex], and now they do and it’s just becoming a lot more open,” Rose told Us. “It’s good that they talk about it. I think maybe I’m just the first Bachelor or Bachelorette to talk about that on TV.” So would there be less backlash from the fans if Bristowe were the Bachelor instead of the Bachelorette? “I think he’d still take some heat for it, but maybe just not as much,” the dance instructor said. “It’s probably a little worse because I’m a lady.” But Bristowe’s impromptu hook-up wasn’t the only shocking part of Tuesday’s Bachelorette promo.

A number of viewers took to social media to speak out against Kaitlyn, saying she went too far and isn’t a good role model for the dating show. “The franchise has always had ‘weird sex issues,’ but the previews and subsequent discussions taking place about Bristowe’s actions became slut-shamey almost immediately after the show aired on Tuesday,” wrote Jessica Goodman on the Huffington Post. On the live “After the Final Rose” show, the rejected runner-up called Dorfman out out for “making love” to him before getting engaged to Josh Murray days later. JJ says he went to college to learn corporate finance and accounting at his father’s urging, and now he’s founded a company called 360 Service Companies.

Clients can find a variety of home service professionals from cleaning and interior design to lawn care via the site and this is definitely a project that’s been years in the making for JJ from the sounds of his background. JJ has been tweeting about the show quite a bit, and it would seem he’s become tight with fellow bachelors Clint Arlis and Tanner Tolbert in particular. As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Kaitlyn received some advice from Andi on how to deal with the process and media scrutiny before she started filming. And then I saw him and he booked a one-way ticket, and he left his job and it was for me, [I thought if] there was a sliver of a chance that I see somebody that I could spend my life with, I’m going to explore that.” At the cocktail party and rose ceremony, Reality Steve’s spoilers detail that Ian Thomson eliminates himself while Kaitlyn sends Joshua Albers and Justin Reich packing.

In her first People blog of the season, Kaitlyn writes that while she does have some regrets about this season, she followed her heart and she wants fans to remember that as they watch.
