Ashley Hebert opens up on post-'Bachelorette' life and sister drama (Video)
On Monday, viewers watched Ashley Hebert give away her final rose on the finale of "The Bachelorette" to J.P. Rosenbaum, a 34-year-old construction manager from New York City.
Rosenbaum popped the big question to Hebert and she gladly accepted. Now that the two are engaged and the finale has aired, the couple opened up about their post-"Bachelorette" life and how things between Hebert and her sister have been patched up.
Rosenbaum revealed to WABC Television, the sister station of KABC Television, OnTheRedcarpet.com's parent company on Tuesday that he knew he was going to make it to the final episode. The interview can be seen below.
"I was pretty confident after our date in Hong Kong that I was going to be there at the end," Rosenbaum said. "You're never 100 percent sure but I think that date was a special date and we had such a wonderful time, I kind of knew it."
He proposed with a Neil Lane engagement ring. The two sealed the engagement with a kiss, on a beach in the picturesque Fiji. Rosenbaum claimed he "wasn't nervous" about proposing, adding, "It all felt right."
During the episode, both Rosenbaum and Ben F., the runner-up, met Hebert's family. Drama started when Hebert's sister Chrystie told Hebert she didn't see J.P. as a good fit. The two sisters argued in what ABC dubbed "a sensation fight" and J.P. was later offered a laundry list of reasons why Chrystie thought he wasn't right for Hebert.
Hebert said that when the show aired, Chrystie realized she was wrong about Hebert's relationship with Rosenbaum. "Surprisingly my sister was so supportive and as soon as she started watching the show air she understood and she called me and said 'I'm so sorry, I see it now,'" Hebert said. "She's the first to admit she judged way too quickly."
Before the season began back in May, Hebert told OnTheRedCarpet.com host Rachel Smith about her final "Bachelorette" decision, "I think I made a good decision for me and I'm really happy with how everything turned out for me."
Hebert and Rosenbaum say they're planning on moving in together and are still trying to figure out which neighborhood in New York City they'd like to live in.
