Blake Horstmann defends Kendall Long amid Joe Amabile drama

US Weekly shared all about what Blake Horstmann had to say in regards to what went down between Kendall Long and Joe Amabile. He has been seeing fans slam Kendall and he thinks everyone should be a little more kind. On Tuesday night’s episode, Kendall had a tough conversation with Joe. She told him she never stopped loving him while he said they were over for good. So, Kendall opted to leave BIP. 

Blake said, “I think this was [definitely] harder than she thought [it would be].” He continued, “Love sucks sometimes. This is sad.”

He didn’t stop there. Blake reminded fans that Kendall left with a broken heart. He said, “I see Kendall getting a little bit of hate, like, ‘Why are you there,’ blah blah blah.” He went on, “What people don’t understand is just that environment makes everything exponentially more difficult, exponentially more intense. So you might think going down there, ‘I’m alright, I’m alright.’ Then you get down [to the beach] and you see everything happening with Joe and Serena and then it makes it so hard.”

He said fans should respect her decision to leave. Once there she realized it was too hard and bailed.

Little too late

By the time Kendall Long showed up to Paradise, Joe was already getting serious with Serena Pitt. Joe said previously on September 6, “I have something with Serena that I don’t want to just throw away. I don’t.” He continued, “I like where that’s going. This is messy … I don’t know what to do in this situation.”

As for Joe and Kendall, they are definitely over. When they broke up fans had hoped these two might end up back together. As time passed it became clear it wasn’t going to happen. Now, fans are also loving seeing what Joe and Serena are building.

In the end, Joe and Kendall were never going to work because neither would budge on where they wanted to live.

What do you think about Kendall’s exit? Does Blake have a good point by telling fans to be nice?

Stay tuned for more updates.
