Bachelorette fans, if you’re like me, you long ago passed the, “Well, DOES he or DOESN’T he?” thing about ol’ Wes The Silver Tongued Maybe-Not-A Bachelor and his waitin’-at-home alleged girlfriend, and moved right on to “Who the hell is she, and why isn’t she pissed?!”
Well, we finally know who the hell she is. And why she isn’t pissed. And if you’re picturing some sweet little Austin-grown posey in a flowery dress and cowboy boots who, like Jillian, is completely snowed by her man’s tender tunes … well … not so much.
Before she spent three years with Jilli’s favorite eye-and-ear candy, 29-year-old Austin-based spa owner Laurel Kagay also dated Season 11′s infamous commitment-phobe Bachelor Brad Womack, an Austin bar owner, for four years — sending the blogosphere into a frenzy with rumors of everything from daily texts from Womack during filming to a love child borne to Kagay about which neither speaks.
One revelation that’s definitely not conjecture: the Texas heartbreaker also dated Austin-based businessman Collin Evans, an unsuccessful contender for the heart of Season 3 Bachelorette Jen Schefft.
Personally, I think the girl seems like a hoot … and one savvy bachelorette to boot, since she suh-wears she and Wes are no longer together. Helloooooo, TB producers … ? Just imagine whom her 5 Extra Men could be.
