If only she knew. Call it sour grapes if you must but Cassie Harshman (photos below) has good reason to be upset today. Arie Luyendyk Jr’s ex-girlfriend heard reports that the former race car driver shared personal medical details about her pregnancy on the set of The Bachelorette.
She suffered a miscarriage two years ago, one of the most emotionally heart-wrenching experiences any woman can go through. The emotional scars never quite heal but we move on with our lives and try to forget. And the memories gets slowly buried as most women try never talk about the ordeal again. Now she is having to relive the moment because reports have surfaced that The Bachelorette contestant who is competing for Emily Maynard’s hand in marriage shared the tragic baby secret on air. You can read the report here.
Biography: Cassie Harshman is 27 years old and already had two children from a prior relationship when she met the swashbuckling race car driver in the winter of 2009. Their relationship lasted two years, but not before Emily’s new suitor began shacking up with her and the kids for about a year. And she has some bombshell news for Miss Maynard.
“He wasn’t the best father figure to my children. Let’s just say that Arie has some growing up to do himself.”
Such words would rip apart their prospective relationship if only they had been uttered in time. Now we know that this season’s finale did indeed produce an engagement proposal, and acceptance, although we don’t know if he was ultimately the Chosen One. The Bachelorette has made it crystal clear that her biggest priority in finding a mate is his ability to be a good father to her young daughter.
Cassie lives in the Phoenix, Arizona area with her two children, one boy with a younger sister. They are beautiful children, which is no great surprise given that mom is a stunner. Her gorgeous body and pretty face undoubtedly attract her pick of men in the world. We can understand if she feels rather bummed these days that she once made a mistake by picking him.
