Unfollowing her heart. The Bachelor alumna Ashley Iaconetti struggles to remove Jared Haibon from her social media accounts on Million Dollar Matchmaker’s Friday, August 26, episode, as seen exclusively in Us Weekly’s sneak peek.
“We’re going to do something that is very drastic, but that works every f–king time,” matchmaker Patti Stanger tells a sobbing Iaconetti. “You’re going to unfollow him on Instagram, you’re going to unfollow him on Facebook, you’re going to unfollow him for life.” When Iaconetti looks appalled at the idea of deleting Haibon, who she has been in an on-and-off relationship with since they met on Bachelor in Paradise season 2, Stanger bluntly adds: “This guy doesn’t like you.” Iaconetti hands over her phone but says through tears, “I feel like I’m doing something against my will.”
After hearing Iaconetti’s hesitation, Stanger, 55, decides to take drastic measures. “She’s just stuck,” Stanger says to the camera. “It seems like it’s time for me to unleash the Jersey.” She then gives the Bachelor season 19 contestant her unfiltered opinion: “You’re f–king crying over some guy that won’t give you the time of day!” When Iaconetti tries to disagree, the matchmaker tells her, “You’re full of s–t.”
The Bachelor in Paradise seasons 2 and 3 standout immediately gets heated. “I’m not feeling angry at who she wants me to be angry at,” Iaconetti says about Stanger in an interview during the episode. “I’m feeling angry toward her.” In their conversation, Stanger continues to push Iaconetti to hit the unfollow button. “This guy is taking up your husband’s space,” she says. “This douche does not deserve to be your friend.”
Though the former nanny, 28, has been heartbroken over Haibon, 27, on this season of Bachelor in Paradise while watching his budding romance with Caila Quinn, Iaconetti tells Us that she and Haibon are currently on good terms. “Jared is one of my best friends,” Iaconetti says in the new issue of Us Weekly. “But this season gave me closure.”
Watch the intense conversation in the clip above.
