Ashley Iaconetti Calls BS On Gerry Turner Divorce

Ashley Iaconetti seems to think that it wasn’t really distance that caused Gerry Turner and Theresa Nist to opt for a divorce just three months after getting married. She went to Instagram Stories to share her thoughts on The Golden Bachelor’s shocking announcement.

Ashley said, “I think a lot of the Good Morning America interview was BS because you don’t say, ‘We’re still in love with each other,’ and then get divorced. You just don’t. If it’s a distance thing — at their age especially — live in Indiana, live in New Jersey, visit each other once or twice a month … Be in love, be married but, like, you know, commute to each other. I don’t buy [it]. I don’t buy that the moving thing is the reason they got divorced three months in.”

  1. I believed even at the end of the show that marriage was rushed because they got caught up in excitement and glamor; and the fans rooting for a wedding.PLUS, the big, expensive honeymoon that the network paid for and the televised wedding. I’d bet they received tons of wedding gifts from their fans that got caught up in the fantasy of the show. If they had decided to date and see how things progressed, they wouldn’t have to now be getting a divorce. But look what they would have missed out on financially and wouldn’t still be in the limelight. A divorce will continue to keep people talking about them for a long time, even IF it’s in a negative light.

  2. Keep reading ‘the heartbreaking announcement of their divorce’? My heart isn’t broken. They weren’t together long enough for heartbreak. Even for them. Their hearts might break that HOPEFULLY reality tv will now shelve them forever.

  3. Gerry twisted the truth too many times and the pre-nup dashed all his dreams of sponging off of her. Those of us with experience saw this coming for sure.
