Kansas City Chiefs QB Aaron Murray’s family is excited about his engagement to his long-time girlfriend, Kacie McDonnell. Well, everyone except his big brother Josh Murray and his fiancee, Bachelorette Andi Dorfman. The reality TV stars haven’t uttered a word on social media about the Aaron’s big news, and they were not present for the big Murray family engagement celebration last week.
Aaron proposed to Kacie last week in Kansas City, surrounded by the whole Murray clan, with Andi and Josh noticeably missing. Within days of their October 10 engagement, Kacie revealed on Instagram that plans for a Philadelphia wedding were underway, leaving many Bachelorette fans wondering if Andi and Josh are mad that their wedding is being upstaged by Aaron and Kacie.
It’s official! Our wedding will be in my home…Philadelphia! HELP…We need a Philly Wedding Planner! thank you xoxo

Perhaps they didn’t show up at the engagement celebration because Andi is not in good graces with Josh’s family. Celeb Dirty Laundry claims that the Murray family “hates Andi” — but it wasn’t always that way. Apparently Josh’s family was fine with Andi right up until the After the Final Rose special aired. Remember when Nick Viall blurted out that Andi slept with him? That apparently didn’t go over so well with Mr. and Mrs. Murray, so that could be why Andi and Josh were not in Kansas City to celebrate Aaron and Kacie’s engagement last week.

Of course, it’s also possible that the Bachelorette couple weren’t able to make it to Kansas City on the night of Aaron’s engagement because they were attending a Bridal Fashion week in NYC. Wet Paint reports that Andi and Josh were invited to several events related to Kleinfeld’s 2015 wedding gown collection, which was probably a paid appearance.
The bride-to-be made it sound like she went to New York to pick out her wedding dress, but that didn’t happen. The couple cheesed it up for the cameras, but managed to repeatedly dodge the “when’s the wedding” question. To top it off, they were surrounded by all-things-bridal and never once mentioned Aaron and Kacie’s engagement during their interviews with the press.
“Yesss! Couture Bridal Fashion week and NYC… Here @joshmurray11 and I come! Pumped to see it with @kleinfeldbridal! Wedding time! @kleinfeldpaper #weddingdress #fashion #happygirl.”
Andi and Josh got engaged on May 9, and have mentioned many times that they are excited about getting married. Although they have only been engaged for five months, there must be a reason they haven’t announced a wedding date. Could it be that the Murray family feud is real, or are they just holding out hope that ABC will offer them a pile of cash to get married on TV?
