She can’t where the ring until after the last episode, or people would know she was engaged…I don’t remember seeing anyone of them wearing the ring until the ATR ceremony…including Ali when she was doing Jimmy Kimmel…
I think you are a wonderful person. Be happy and don’t be so concerned about the people who are so critical of everything you do. Also I love your hair this way,the color and fullness.Hope you find love and get married at the end of this journey.
i think you are a very pretty amazing girl ashley after what happened with brad i couldnt go find love again i havent been in love with anyone for 7 years and i need help with that can you help me and bentley is a bad guy get rid of him you have amazing guys on there for you just not bentley hes there for the competition and the fame not you thats what he said.
Ashley, got a question for you…why are you sabotaging yourself in relationships? You seem to be drawn to jerks like Bentley (even though you were warned about him) and william. What is up with that? I know what I’m talking about, I used to do the same thing. I hope by pointing out the elephant in your room you’ll wake up and see what i’m talking about and get help before you find yourself in a relationship you’ll regret.
You seem to be a very nice, intelligent, and attractive woman with really big emotions. Please don’t let the douche bags like Bentley ruin your life or love expectations. For every DB there’s a great guy waiting for you – the trick is to recognize who that is. Touch, feel, look deeply and be real (I like that you wore your glasses last night and revealed yourself). Speaking as one of the good ones, you’ll be so happy when you find him or he finds you. Don’t cry over the DBs – put them in a place they belong: far far away. Been there, done that, be happy and smile your beautiful smile. <3
J.P. is so sincere and good looking. His smile warms the screen with sincerity. Why did they give so much air time to BENTLEY? UGH! They should have shown more of your date with J.P. It was so romantic and he is so nice. I hope you end up with him. You guys look so cute together. You are a sweet girl and you deserve someone like J.P.

I have been watching the show for years. On the final night we have a bachelor/bachelorette party in our neighborhood. We all look forward to discussing the episodes the next morning while walking our dogs. The general consensus today was that we will stop watching the series if it continues to be mean. Last night was so unnecessary. We all thought higher of Chriss. He should have shared about Bentley. Not only do we feel for Ashley,
we feel bad for Bentley’s daughter.
I’m Praying that you found a good man! I cry like a big baby when I see you on tv & trust me I didnt have this reaction with the other bachelorette shows.
The difference… YOU are (not seem) REAL>
I’ve been schemed over so many times by husbands that its sad. So I understand how it feels to be used or lied to..unfortunately! I’ve been married 5 times, divorced 3 times & widowed once. Found out my last marriage wasnt legal here in the U.S. (thank God!) so I didnt have to dismiss him. All but one cheated on me & it hurt me so bad. So my question is, how do you think I should go about finding a TRUE honest man! My daughter ( 17 & still a good girl) says that I’m not a loser because I believe in love but not in infidelity or liars! so how can I find a good man! maybe you can help me? I know you have a lot on your plate but I dont want to be alone! can you imagine being me 25 years from now and still!!! trying to find love!
So there you have it! Hope to hear from you!
Thank you!!! Julie, your friendly neighborhood VisionAngel
The Bachelorette producers are pigs for filming fellow pigs and allowing that on the air last night. That was not entertainment. I kept thinking at some point the producers would have some class and rescue her from the first bit of ‘roasting’ about the boobs etc. She is beautiful as she is, hopefully she has not allowed you to ruin her self confidence. Then to allow another main pig to be have even one minute of television time with his second of fame and talk all that smack, you should all be ashamed. Men on the current show, producers, Chris, I don’t know you but as a mother, I hope your mothers are ashamed of you!
A former watcher
As a side note I would like to say that Chris probably didn’t know about Bentley (entirely at least) til the very end, remember it’s only a few crew member filming the commentary, I seriously doubt Chris watched all the footage right away (remember what we see is an edited version of what happens that week/day)and that the show is filmed in a very short amount of time. It did upset me that no one warned Ashley, but I think as viewers we look at it with the intent that they want us to see it with. The important thing is that Ashley has later than sooner found out the truth, and she didn’t end up with him.
I think you are darling, but I feel like you’re completely shutting the other guys out! I totally understand what its like to really get your hopes up on a guy you are super attracted to, but I really do hope you put Bentley in the past as best you can and give the other guys a fair chance. As for William, he probably had no idea the whole “being disappointed the bachelorette wasn’t Emily” thing was a huge insecurity, and he was so upset that he had hurt you. I don’t think William is a jerk at all, I think he tried to get as into the “roast” as possible with no bad intentions what so ever. I hope you give him a chance! <3
DITTO @Emily – so well said! William was sincere in feeling really bad about getting so into the roast…whose idea what a roast as a group date was it anyway?? That should NEVER happen on the show again. Fair to say that many fans of the show were super disappointed in the entire 3rd epi between the roast and listening to all the horrible things Bentley was saying during his interviews and totally putting on with you – glad he’s gone and hopefully you will be too. Wish Chris H. would have shown you a clip or two to back up what he was trying to tell you last night so you’d be more able to move on. OK – my favs from what they’ve show us so far J.P. is my #1 pic…let’s see how it all unfolds from here

I am glad Bentley is gone. I would have stopped watching the show if he had been on one more week. I think it’s sad that the producers of the show let it go on this long and VERY sad that they gave Bentley as much air time as they did. Bentley should have been asked to leave by the show. I guess they need it for ratings no matter who is hurt.
I do hope that you get this message–not for me, but for you. Please rest assured that you are absolutely gorgeous physically (and I’d wager large that millions of attractive men out there would wholeheardetly agree), have a totally charming persona, and a level of sincerity that is admirable. To discover that you were to be the new bachelorette would have made me ecstatic. Let anything negative you’ve heard roll off your back and forget them! Trust that part of yourself that tells you Ashley Hebert is a wonderful and highly appealing woman. Heck, if I was 30 years younger I’d be sending YOU roses. You will find the right love at the right time–just don’t settle for anything less.
I guess what I keep thinking about is how much Ashley liked Bentley. She said if she didn’t get that warning from Michelle, then Bentley would be the front runner instead he got the last rose. There was another time that she said if it were up to her she would take off with Bentley now. I don’t remember the exact words. I’m just curious why she never had a one on one date with him or why she didn’t spend more time with him if she thought he was the one.
Hey Ashley, I just want you to know that I just leafed through the book The Psychopath Test and I’m sure that Bentley is a psychopath. THANK GOD he wasn’t into you and left because it wasn’t in his best interest. You dodged a bullet, girl. Be grateful.

I really liked you when you took the chance on the Bachelor with Brad. With that said, “Do you think you have found the “one” for you?” I know nothing is suppose to be said until the show is over, but I was just wondering because in the past each one of the Bachelor’s or Bachelorette’s would say whether or not they are happy and have found the right one. Keep your chin up and good luck with the choices you have made or are making! Thanks, Dana
Mine is more of a comment. I think you are an amazing woman, beautiful, intelligent and extremely driven. Any guy would be lucky to have you and I wish you the best of luck. Bentley is a first class JERK and an idiot for treating you like that. And though you heart was broken, you made it through. I won’t tell you that you’re perfect because no one is but you’re so much more than you can see. And I hope that whatever guy you choose makes you feel as special as you really are.
I think you are adorable, but I have to ask “what were you thinking” to have a roast? What were your expectations of a roast? I just feel William is the only one that actually did the roast and was villianized for it. Have you ever watched a roast? I think it was the fact he touched on one of your major insecurities. I am glad you gave him another chance. Please don’t loose your sense of humor in life because that is so very important. I hope you find love. My best to you.
Hi Ashley, I Just Wanted To Tell You That GOD Has Your Husband Already For You. But Just Keep Praying To GOD And He Will Answer Your Prayers. I Know You & J.P Make A Beautiful Couple Together. He (J.P) Said He Has Stronger Feelings For You… I Hope You Pick Him To Be Ur Husband. I Can Tell You Look More Happy When Your Around J.P.. I’LL BE PRAYING FOR YOU. MELINDA DIAZ
Wow, what an education on personality disorders namely narcissism of which Ashley is one and Bentley is the other. Its not surprising that you had a meltdown over Bentley dot,dot.dot….Ashley. He left and you felt abandoned.
Humm, I think that touched a cord with you and your father.
The producers got there way again in recruiting the biggest narcissists they could find. Job well done!
At least the viewing public can see this disorder, recognize it and stay far away from people like this.
You don”t really want to find love.
You don”t really want to be a dentist or you wouldn”t be on this show.
Lets face it Ashley, it’s all about you! Good luck on Dancing with the stars.
If the show was called “The Narcissist…ette ” at least people would be educated.
You are right! You and Bentley are made for each other.
Other guys…run as fast as you can!
Ashley, why did you get so hurt over Williams comment during the roast per the Emily comment ,when you directed at all the guys you were wanting Brads number. You know it is all light hearted meaningless stuff, William just was getting into it like a roast does. maybe it’s because you had your commets written for you where the guys had to right their own ,so you took it more personal ? but even so you should have told the producers you did not want to do the ‘Brad ‘ comment because it might be to hurtful to some guys, but you didn’t. what’s up with that ??? you said you could ‘ take it’ but you couldn’t you never should have agreed to a roast ,how stupid ! you are a sweetie though , I do think you are just adorable, and wish the best of everthing! I feel kinda bad for William ,but what is meant to be is meant to be. things happen for a reason.
Barb, I’ll tell you why Ashley was hurt by Williams comments.The comment he made about Emily drove right to the very heart of her insecurities about being excepted and not being rejected. I think this all comes from her upbringing with a father that basically was not around much due to alcohol abuse.She agreed to the roast because she wants to prove what a great sport she is and how wonderful she is.
To the outside world she is but I would bet that she can be very controlling and gets very upset if things in life don’t go her way.
Shes attracted to Bentley because he said he was leaving just like her father probably did many times when she needed him.
I am not saying any of this to be mean. I hope Ashley reads this and begins to understand about the choices she makes and why she is making them.
. It’s text book behaviour of someone with issues of abandonment.Believe me I know what I am talking about!
I was married to the exact same person and it takes many years to figure this out.
Ashley, it’s killing me to watch you make a fool of yourself over such a douche bag. And that’s being nice.
My mother once asked me where my pride was, many years later I finally understood what that meant. Hope you find yours much sooner!!
ABC should have told Ashley about Bentleys motives!!!
2nd, knowing Bentleys motives, letting him back on the show, is awful, and cruel unless he’s back to report what Dick he is.
Someone was sent home who could have been a real match for Ashley, because of Bentley…. And it wasted time for the other guys!
JP is darling! If she didn’t end up with him he’d be a good next bachelor, or West. I’m just sayin’
If I hear “Bentley” one more time, I think I will puke. I think the producers see what he has been saying behind the scenes and they need to put a stop to it. They are letting Ashley be intentionally publicly humiliated just to further their ratings. When she finds out in the end, I think she should sue.
Ashley, what I can’t believe is that Bentley’s ex-wife used their daughter to promote her business on t.v. And she said she was upset with Bentley for using her as an excuse to leave the show. What about her? What kind of parents are they?
