After an unexpected start, Tayshia Adams is officially the new Bachelorette, and her journey toward finding love is just beginning. While many fans speculated that a man from her past was going to shake things up even more in season 16, she slammed the reports and set the record straight.
On Friday, Tayshia took to her Instagram Story to tell people to “move on” and stop talking about her ex-husband. The reality star was married to her college boyfriend, Josh Bourelle, for about a year and a half before they split in 2017. She first revealed she was divorced as part of her back story when she was on Colton Underwood’s season of The Bachelor in 2019.
“Yes, I have been married, and yes I am divorced, and yes now I am the Bachelorette and I am dating 20 men on ABC every single week,” she said. “So the fact that we are continuously talking about my past relationship that was three years ago, I don’t understand. I don’t get it.”
“He’s living his life, I’m living my life, you have plenty of other people that have signed up to be researched and talked about,” she continued. “He never signed up for it. So why don’t we leave him alone and talk about something that actually matters? Honestly, I am bored with this entire topic. Let’s move on and find something more interesting.”
Tayshia went on her first one-on-one date on Tuesday’s episode of The Bachelorette, where she opened up to suitor Brendan Morais about her romantic past — specifically, that she has been previously married and divorced. Brendan could empathize, also having been married before, but while he said he and his ex-wife simply fell out of love, Tayshia revealed that in her split, “there was infidelity…not on my part.”
However, a new clip circulating on the internet had many speculating that Josh may actually make an appearance on Tayshia’s Bachelorette season.
TikTok user @bigmoodbayley shared the theory, noting that she came across the promo for Tayshia’s season on The Bachelorette’s official Twitter account. When viewing the video with closed captions, she noticed one off-screen voice, which says “It’s only a matter of time before she realizes the truth,” was denoted as “Josh Bourelle.”
