TV Watch The Bachelorette
Reaching out publicly for the first time following her surprise split from Josh Murray, former Bachelorette Andi Dorfman posted an emotional message on her Instagram page Friday.
"It's family and friends who pick us up when we fall down, and if they can't pick us up, they lie down next to us and just listen and love," reads the quote she posted, which garnered nearly 36,000 'likes' in 15 hours.
Dorfman, 27, and Murray, 30, confirmed their breakup on Jan. 8, just three days after the duo looked happy at the season 19 premiere of the Bachelor. Dorfman surprised fans when she chose Murray over fellow contestant Nick Viall in last season's finale of The Bachelorette.
Bachelorette Andi Dorfman may have just split with fiancé Josh Murray, but after 12 years and 33 seasons of The Bachelor, The Bachelorette and its spin-offs (Bachelor Pad and Bachelor in Paradise), somewhere between all the group dates, hometown visits and rose ceremonies, some true love connections have formed. In fact, six couples have turned their on-camera connection into 'til-death-do-us-part love.
The Bachelorette stars Andi Dorfman and Josh Murray have mutually decided to end their engagement.
"After several months of being engaged and working on our relationship, we have decided that it's best for both of us to go our separate ways," revealed Dorfman, 27, and Murray, 30, in a joint statement obtained by PEOPLE. "We are very sad that it has come to this point, but this is what's best for both of us individually."
The statement continued: "We will continue to be good friends and have nothing but great things to say about each other and wish each other the best."
It's beach balls and wedding bells for
Bachelor in Paradise lovebirds Lacy Faddoul and Marcus Grodd!
The reality stars, both 26, plan to make their showmance legal this summer.
"We have been going to lots of different venues, and our wedding is planned for this year in 2015 – hopefully in the summertime," Faddoul told PEOPLE at the Season 19 premiere of The Bachelor on Monday night.
"We're still 80/40 on the date, but, as far as our wedding, we're really customizing it," she continued.
Since most of Faddoul and Grodd's love story – from the time they first met up until their engagement – played out in front of Bachelor Nation, the couple is adamant about including fans in their nuptials.
"Everybody has been so supportive of our [relationship]," Faddoul said.
Paradise has ended for Cody Sattler and Michelle Money, who met on ABC's Bachelor in Paradise over the summer.
While former castmates Marcus Grodd and Lacy Faddoul have wedding bells in their future, Money and Sattler took to social media Thursday to share that they have split after six months together.
"Cody and I have decided that we are going to move on from our relationship," Money, 34, wrote on her Facebook page. "I feel very blessed and fortunate to have shared such beautiful memories with such an incredible guy. ... This decision has been a very difficult one to make, to say the least."
Maybe it's just a coincidence that many of the most popular shows on Twitter this year feature the kinds of twists and surprise deaths that have viewers Tweeting in mass outrage.
For 2014, The Walking Dead was the most-Tweeted TV show (#RIPBeth), followed by the reality show hate-watch The Bachelor and the ever-popular Pretty Little Liars, according to the Nielson Twitter TV Ratings.
It's all about the dress.
That's Andi Dorfman's approach to wedding planning, she and fiancé Josh Murray told PEOPLE Monday at The Knot Gala in New York.
"The dress is kind of our first step," said the former Bachelorette, 27. "As a woman, I am just going to go ahead and say everything revolves around the dress. So, we will pick the theme, we will pick the venue, and we will pick the place based on the dress, I think."
From one star's sudsy secrets to a celebrity mom's bold body reveal, here's the news you might have missed this weekend:
Desiree Hartsock and her fiancé, Chris Siegfried, say they are happily and romantically nesting in advance of their upcoming wedding.
After their May 2013 engagement on The Bachelorette, the couple moved in together in Seattle and easily blended their design sensibilities and lifestyles as they put together a cozy and loving home, the couple told TheNest.com.
"Chris knows how to surprise me with flowers or a simple note to make me feel special and thought of. That always makes me happy!" bridal stylist Hartsock, 28, said of their romance.
She's equally committed to returning the interest "by constantly reminding me how much she loves me," Siegfried said. "I love that she makes sure she gets a kiss before I leave for work every day."
