Nick Viall & Natalie Joy Drag Clare Crawley Into Maria Georgas Feud

Bachelor Season 28 contestant Maria Georgas recently confirmed on a podcast that she’d been friends with Nick Viall for years before she joined the franchise. But their friendship has appeared to hit a sour note after she made the shocking allegation that he egged on drama with fellow contestant Sydney Gordon.

Nick Viall and his wife, Natalie Joy, addressed the suggestion on his Viall Files podcast. Natalie went as far as to call Maria Georgas “delusional” for her claims.

She took the diss a step further by dragging Season 16 Bachelorette Clare Crawley into the already-messy feud. “I also heard from some friends of ours who are close to the source that filming with her was close to filming with Clare Crawley,” Natalie Joy said on the podcast.

While Natalie Joy isn’t part of the Bachelor Nation franchise, her husband is.

Clare Crawley famously quit the Bachelorette after just two weeks of filming after falling in love with suitor Dale Moss. The two got engaged but broke up before walking down the aisle. She’s now married to Ryan Dawkins, and they have a beautiful daughter, Rowan.

Clare Crawley Responds To Being Labeled Difficult

Rumors have swirled for years that ABC was unhappy with Clare Crawley for quitting her season. Her previous run-ins with Juan Pablo Galavis and Yosef Aborady only fueled the flames that she was difficult.

Word of the podcast diss must have gotten back to her. She shared a quote on her Instagram Story about being perceived as difficult.

“To the women perceived as ‘aggressive,’ continue to be assertive. To the women perceived as ‘bossy,’ continue leading. To the women perceived as ‘too much,’ continue taking up space. To the women perceived as ‘awkward,’ continue to ask hard questions. To the women: be yourself.” – Clare Crawley Instagram quote.

However, she had a more direct message to Nick Viall and Natalie Joy about their newborn daughter, River Rose.

Says She Will ‘Pray’ For Their Daughter

In another Instagram Story response to the insult, Clare Crawley shared a text exchange with a follower. The follower wrote, “The convos around women, especially former Bachelorettes, being ‘too’ much of anything are a lot. Too emotional, too difficult, too indecisive, etc. Nick making money of making it hard for women to not get people in their comments.”

“Tale as old as time. If standing up for yourself, having boundaries, and not letting people take advantage of you is considered being difficult … then I don’t know what to say lol,” Clare replied.

The Bachelor Nation star added, “I can only pray these people raise a child that is capable of being difficult for others in order to stay true to themselves.”
