Josh Murray continues to hit back against Andi Dorfman’s claims in her book, It’s Not Okay: Turning Heartbreak into Happily Never After.
While Murray is chasing Amanda Stanton on Bachelor in Paradise, Evan Bass brought up Murray’s questionable past with Dorfman. How did Murray react when confronted with Dorfman’s claims a second time?
According to Hollywood Life, Murray explained that Dorfman is struggling with how their relationship ended and wished nothing but happiness for his former fiancée.
“You’re never going to get the truth because the truth is what hurt that other person (Andi) so much, and it sounds weird, but I pray for her happiness. I do, I hope she moves on from whatever it is that happened, and there’s no reason to explain myself,” Murray shared. “That’s it. Period. Why stoop down to somebody’s level?”
Of course, Bass didn’t stop with the questions and pushed Murray to reveal more details about his split with Dorfman.
However, Murray once again refused to address specific allegations and said that everything Dorfman wrote is a lie.
“The facts are that it’s a fictional novel… The facts are it’s a fictional story. There’s a lot of things that were said that were very negative and very untrue.”
Bass then asked why Murray didn’t sue Dorfman for libel if her tales were fictional.
“Why even acknowledge something that’s so fictional?” Bass replied.
True or not, Dorfman is reaping major benefits now that her book is taking center stage on Bachelor in Paradise.
In fact, Zap2it is reporting that Dorfman’s book continues to increase in sales, despite already being a best-seller.
What did Dorfman write that was so incriminating against Josh Murray?
For starters, the former Bachelorette star admitted that her romance with Murray was “the most volatile and f**ked up relationship of my life.”
Dorfman then opened up about how her sexual intimacy with Nick Viall, her runner-up on The Bachelorette, eventually ruined her relationship with Murray.
“That one sexual escapade would become a power play used by my fiancé to justify his mistrust in me. It would be his excuse to call me ‘a whore.’ And it would eventually lead to the demise of my engagement,” Dorfman revealed.
On a side note, Murray’s relationship with Stanton is not the only way he is making headlines these days. With his lips constantly locked with Stanton’s, Murray’s incessant moaning is making fans uncomfortable.
Even Josh admits that his strange kissing habit is making him feel weird too.
“Passion and attraction is a beautiful thing,” Murray, 32, wrote via Twitter. “But even I am a little uncomfortable with how much they replay my moan for every makeout.”
Meanwhile, E! Online is reporting that Bass isn’t the only one targeting Murray.
Viall is getting ready to re-ignite his old rivalry with Murray on the next episode of Bachelor in Paradise.
During a sneak peek for the coming installment, Viall confronts Stanton about Murray’s shady past.
“I didn’t read the book, I have a general idea of what it says about Josh,” Viall explains to her. “I hope Andi didn’t make all that up, because what she said was some pretty nasty stuff. And I guess my thought when I heard about it was I hope to God it’s completely false, and completely fictional. I don’t know if he’s a good guy or a bad guy, I don’t know if what was written was true or false, but ask the right questions.”
While Viall and Murray are set to duke it out, People revealed that Bass has moved on from Stanton and hooked up with Carly.
Following Bass’s mysterious medical emergency, he and Carly got up close and personal in his room.
Will their romance last? Or will someone else come between them?
For now, it isn’t clear what is going on with Bass and whether or not his intentions with Carly are good.
Whatever happens, between Murray’s shady past and his rivalries with Bass and Viall, things are starting to heat up on Bachelor in Paradise.
Fans can watch all the drama continue to unfold when new episodes of Bachelor in Paradise air Monday and Tuesday nights on ABC.
