Anyone who’s seen Love Is Blind is familiar with the Amber / Barnett / Jessica drama. But, if you haven’t seen it and are reading this post for some reason anyway, let me break it down:
Barnett was basically the ladies man of the pods, and formed two* close relationships, in particular: Jessica and Amber. He told Jessica that he could see himself proposing to her, so thinking that he was a sure thing, she tried to break things off with Mark, the other guy she was dating in the pods. But then, Barnett threw a curveball and said — in the span of 24 hours — that he’d changed his mind and didn’t know how he felt.
Ultimately, Barnett proposed to Amber, and Mark proposed to Jessica. Two happy couples right? WRONG!!! When they all got to Mexico, Jessica basically threw herself at Barnett and tried to poke holes in his relationship with Amber.
It didn’t get much better when they got back to real life, either. Jessica continuously put up walls with Mark and, during the bachelorette party, well…let’s just say Amber did not come to play.
Anyway, SPOILER, Amber and Barnett got married and Jessica and Mark (unsurprisingly) did not.
Cut to: The reunion!!! Vanessa and Obviously Nick Lachey asked Amber and Barnett — who are still married — and Jessica, to clear the air. And I am not exaggerating when I say I have never been more uncomfortable in my life!!!!
Amber starts by saying that “there was a very strong sense of girl power” during the pod stage and that she and LC “came to a mutual decision” to not talk about their dates with Barnett.
AND THEN SHE SAID, “To see her throwing herself at him in Mexico? Bitch, you’re sheisty. You’re so fake.”
When I say people REACTED. Tag yourself, I’m Lauren.
Amber continued, “I think you’re a very disingenuous person and I hope seeing this, you do grow from it, because that is not what the world needs — women that go behind people’s backs like that.”
JESSICA’S FACE!!!!!!! Kelly’s side-eye!!!!! Whew!
“Obviously I was rejected by Barnett. I didn’t take that very well. Seeing that play out is brutal,” she said, before making a heartfelt apology.
But at the end of the day, the damage was done.
And there you have it. How do you feel about what Amber said? What about Jessica? Tell us your thoughts in the comments!
