Bachelor Host: Past Contestants Back Me in Rozlyn War
In his war of words against Rozlyn Papa, Bachelor host Chris Harrison says he's amassed powerful friends to his cause: Bachelors and Bachelorettes of seasons past.
"One of the coolest things has been the response I've gotten from all the former Bachelors and Bachelorettes," Harrison told E! News after Monday's combative Women Tell All special.
"Trista, Ryan [Sutter], Andrew Firestone, Andy Baldwin, Bob Guiney, Jesse Csincsak, Deanna [Pappas] -- all these people have just come out of the woodwork saying 'We've got your back,' from texts or twitters, and it's kind of cool," he says.
During the Women Tell All show, Harrison grilled Papa about her alleged "inappropriate" relationship with show producer Ryan Callahan; she fired back by calling the married dad of two a "cheater." (He later called Papa "desperate" for the claim.
"I feel really good about it all," Harrison says about Monday's 'show. "I wanted the audience to hear the details--what the women saw, how [Rozlyn and the producer] made it so obvious and out in the open."
The TV host also makes a promise: "You won't hear me speak out about Rozlyn any more after this interview."
