Bachelorette Winner Complained Jillian Wasn't His "Type"
While he was wooing Jillian Harris on ABC's The Bachelorette, Ed Swiderski was also texting then-girlfriend Lindsey Johnson he loved her, according to the new issue of Us Weekly (on newsstands now).
Contestants are supposed to relinquish cellphones during taping, but Johnson, 29, tells Us Weekly Swiderski, 30, frequently texted her.
"We were in contact the entire time," Johnson tells Us Weekly. "He kept saying he loved me and that he couldn't wait to get back to me. All he said about Jillian was, 'She's not my type. I like tall blondes!'"
Adds Johnson (who says she slept with Swiderski eight days after he proposed to Harris), "I believed everything he said to me when, in actuality, he was saying the same things to Jillian at the same time."
Swiderski's other girlfriend, Bethany Steffen, has also come forth to warn Harris, telling Us Weekly that he tried to bed her after popping the question to Harris as well.
Swiderski denies cheating on Harris, 29, who said on Wednesday's Good Morning America that she believes his word that the ladies' claims are "not true."
But Steffen tells Us, "Lindsey and I are both smart girls, and Ed just has this way of making people believe what he wants. Jillian needs to be careful."
