Rachael Kirkconnell had some tough conversations during last night’s “After the Final Rose” special…and understandably so. While Rachael discussed the racist photos of her attending an Old South–themed party, she said that her actions were incredibly ignorant and explained that she’s been educating herself ever since. Rachael also spoke with Matt James about their breakup and apologized for how her past actions hurt him. But as it turns out, there was one talk last night that viewers didn’t see: Rachael’s conversation with future Bachelorette Michelle Young.
In a spoiler post, Reality Steve said Rachael and Michelle actually sat down together during the “After the Final Rose” special, and Michelle said she was upset Rachael didn’t try to get in touch with her after things got messy with Matt’s season.
Reality Steve wrote:
“One thing that wasn’t shown but has been released in pictures was Michelle on the couch talking to Rachael. Michelle just wanted to let her know how she felt in regards to all the stuff that came out about Rachael post-show. Michelle was disappointed Rachael never reached out to her as she had to others from the season. Rachael said she knew Michelle was hurting and upset that Matt hadn’t chosen her and didn’t know what to say, but ultimately agreed that she should’ve said something.”
Now that Michelle is slated to be one of the next Bachelorettes, it’s pretty unlikely she’ll go on the record publicly about this, but at least she managed to get some closure with Rachael. Wishing Michelle the most drama-free season in Bachelorette history!
