Andi Dorfman wasn’t even on Bachelor in Paradise this season but she was at the center of the drama. And the season 10 Bachelorette told Us Weekly Video at Us Weekly’s 2016 Most Stylish New Yorkers bash at Vandal in New York City on Tuesday, September 13, that she didn’t mind one bit, considering her book sales surged.
As previously reported by Us Weekly, Dorfman’s book, It’s Not Okay: Turning Heartbreak into Happily Never After — which focuses on her failed romance with Josh Murray — was the center of debate on season 3 of the ABC spinoff.
“They’ve definitely done well, thank you for that,” Dorfman told Us at the bash of her book’s sales. “We got an extra boost that I’m not going to complain about.”
In the tell-all, Dorfman accuses Murray of being a “classic emotional abuser.” When asked by Us if she watched Murray and his new fiancée Amanda Stanton‘s romance play out, Dorfman said she didn’t, but that she heard about the drama.
“I think you have to remember your pasts are going to be brought up [if you’re on reality TV],” she explained to Us of the situation. “I tried to stay away from it.”
Dorfman and Murray split in January 2015, just five months after their engagement aired during season 10 of the hit ABC show. After the May 2016 release of her book, Murray told Us in a statement: “It saddens me and is very unfortunate that Andi has chosen to characterize me in such a negative way. I pray she finds peace.”
The former assistant district attorney also discussed her fellow ex Nick Viall becoming the next Bachelor. Watch the video above to hear if she’ll be rooting for Viall or not.
