Rachel Lindsay shares regrets over Chris Harrison situation

US Weekly shared what Rachel Lindsay had to say on the Tell Me With Ellen Pompeo podcast about The Bachelor franchise and her big fallout with former host Chris Harrison. Why did it take Rachel so long to speak out about that interview that completely changed the franchise?

Rachel said she has a lot of PTSD from the entire incident. She went on to say she needed to step back and get to a point where she could have an honest conversation about it and be herself.

As most fans of Bachelor Nation know, Rachel’s interview with Chris got out of hand when he defended Rachael Kirkconnell. He had said, “the woke police is out there,” and that Kirkconnell was being thrown to the lions.

As for what Rachel regrets about that interview, she regrets being silent. Rachel said, “I don’t know if I’ve ever said this, but I was a little mad at myself.” She continued, “I have a bit of a temper. I’m extremely opinionated. I like a good debate and I was mad at myself that I was silent.”

She continued on saying further, “There were so many things that I wanted to say and I didn’t, and it took a while for me to say, ‘But you were doing your job. It wasn’t a debate, it was an interview, and you had to allow him to say what he wanted to say.”

Fans of the franchise blamed Rachel for Chris Harrison’s departure. They started saying she canceled him. She even received death threats following that interview.

She said it took a long time for her to realize she was just doing her job. Rachel would have asked those same questions to anyone involved with the franchise.

Because of the fallout and backlash she received, Rachel took a step away from the franchise.
