Despite living far from one another in different states, Becca Tilley and Whitney Bischoff still make an effort to maintain the friendship that began when they both competed for Chris Soules on The Bachelor. On Friday afternoon, Whitney posted a snapshot of a text message conversation that she had with Becca.
The two engaged in some silly banter over emoji language.
Whitney may now be leaning on her friends more in the wake of her split from Chris. In early May, Chris, in an interview with Us Weekly while competing on Dancing with the Stars, denied the rumors that he and Whitney were no longer together. He said that the celebrity life wasn’t real and that he and Whitney were eager to start their real lives away from the cameras.
“We’re together and we’re in love. We’re making the best of a really cool situation that we’re both a part of that’s not going to last much longer… We’re just normal people living a kind of abnormal life for a couple more weeks…All this [Hollywood fame and celebrity] is not real life. L.A. isn’t real life for me. Arlington is and Chicago — that’s real life and we want to take that step and then we’ll make [wedding] plans.”
Yet a few weeks later, about two months after viewers watched them get engaged on The Bachelor, Chris and Whitney released a joint statement announcing their split. Chris is now filming another reality TV show, Food Network’s Worst Cooks in America: Celebrity Edition. He joins Dean Cain, Ellen Cleghorne, Jenni “JWOWW” Farley, Jaleel White, Barry Williams, and Kendra Wilkinson. On Wednesday, Kendra posted a photo of herself in a cab with Chris and Dean Cain.
As the Inquisitr previously reported, Becca recently defended Chris after people accused him of being fame-hungry. Becca’s defense was before Chris’ latest show was announced.
Will Whitney Bischoff watch Chris Soules’ new show? Perhaps not. She is, however, watching Kaitlyn Bristowe, who came in third behind her and Becca for Chris, on The Bachelorette. Last week, Whitney tweeted about getting ready to watch Kaitlyn find the man of her dreams.
Becca Tilley is also watching Kaitlyn Bristowe. On Tuesday, Becca tweeted that she loves Kaitlyn and told off Kaitlyn’s haters. The tweet is likely a reference to all the viewer criticism that Kaitlyn has received for allowing Nick Viall, from Andi Dorfman’s season, to stay on and compete for her. Monday night’s episode of The Bachelorette showed Nick surprising Kaitlyn with his presence during a group date and then Kaitlyn making the decision to have Nick join the competitor pool, much to the dismay of the other men.
