The frenemies had the chance to air things out at the Women Tell All Special. Sydney’s recent social media post made it clear they’ve put their differences aside. The former Bachelor contestant owns the Folk Vintage Co. clothing store in Newport, Rhode Island.

She took to TikTok to share a video of picking clothes from the store to style Maria Georgas. Along with an associate, Sydney selected a few outfits for her former rival. According to bachelornation.com, one outfit had “a vintage Betsey Johnson look with roses and a silk dress with Gucci heels.”
