Krisily was offered but turned down The Bachelorette.

The Bachelor 7‘s loser–actually, considering it was Neanderthal Charlie doing the choosing, she was clearly the winner–Krisily Kennedy was apparently offered her own version of the show. In a chat with readers of the Providence Journal, she was asked if she’d ever do The Bachelorette. Her response:

It has been brought up, doing the bachelorette, but at this point I would have to say no. For one, I am not sure I am ready to leave my friends and family for another four months, and two I have recently started a new relationship with my best friend and it is going great.

She’s so diplomatic (“fuck no” would have been a perfectly rational response). Still being nice, Krisily responds to a question about her show’s leading man by saying, “Charlie was great, he was definitely a guy I could be friends with but probably not anything long term.”
