Trouble after paradise. Perez Hilton reveals that Tanner Tolbert previously called Jade Roper a “lethargic slob” on Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars’ Friday, October 7, season premiere, as seen exclusively in Us Weekly’s sneak peek.
In the clip above, the cast gathers around the television, where Hilton appears on screen to introduce footage shot before the series began regular filming. “Jade and Tanner, they found each other on Bachelor in Paradise,” the blogger explains of the couple, who fell in love on the ABC series’ second season. “Maybe you should actually know someone longer than, let’s say, three weeks before deciding you want to live happily ever after.”
The screen then cuts to pre-show footage of Tanner, who declares, “Jade doesn’t do s–t.” In an on-camera interview with the newlyweds filmed after they saw the clip, Jade expresses how hurt she is by his past remarks. “For you to say that,” she says to Tanner, “was like completely crushing me.”
In her own pre-show interview — which is being watched by the entire cast — Jade says of Tanner, “Bitch is his favorite word.” R&B Divas: Atlanta star Keke Wyatt is clearly shocked at Jade’s claim, as she turns to husband Michael Jamar Ford and whispers, “He called her a bitch?”
As the rest of the group cringes, Tanner’s footage reappears on the group’s television screen and shows him saying of his wife, who he married in January, “Being a lethargic slob all day is not sexy at all.”
Mob Wives star Karen Gravano is surprised by the couple’s hostility. “Coming from The Bachelor, they’re hinting this picture perfect life and they fall in love and everything’s happily ever after,” she says in an on-camera interview with boyfriend Storm. “But that’s not life.”
The heated past footage ends with a dramatic admission from Tanner. “I do not love Jade as a partner in our marriage yet,” he says, to which his wife replies, “Then maybe you shouldn’t be married.”
Watch the dramatic moment in the clip above.
Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars airs on We TV Fridays at 9 p.m. ET.
