Hannah Brown had hoped for a little more restraint from her flame Tyler Cameron.
Brown and Cameron had some serious romance on “The Bachelorette” but things did not work out. Days after the two reality stars went on a date, it was revealed Cameron was dating supermodel Gigi Hadid.
Brown discussed Cameron and Hadid’s relationship on the “Bachelor Happy Hour” podcast with Rachel Lindsay and Ali Fedotowsky. “I guess I find it disrespectful,” Lindsay said. “It’s kind of like, bro, slow your roll.”
“You’re on Twitter talking about ‘Hannah’s the queen’ and preaching about respect, but then you’re being a little disrespectful by dating her in such a public way where you know it’s going to get so much attention,” Lindsay continued. “I think that’s my beef with it.”
“I think that’s my beef with it, too,” Brown agreed. “We are not dating-dating, at all, we hung out, but we also had conversations of both, like, knowing that there’s still something there. When you are in the public eye, you do have to just be respectful of each other. And yeah, I wish I would’ve got a little bit more than two days. But, you know, it is okay.”
Brown was asked if she was hurt by Cameron’s sudden relationship with Hadid. “Let me think about how I want to answer this,” she pondered. “He has every right to do whatever he wants because we were, you know, just hanging out, seeing where it goes. And I am completely fine with that.”
“It was a little confusing, but he can do whatever he wants to and I know that I can, too,” she continued. “And I am going to continue going onward and upward. I just think that I’ve made it very clear — I have no shame in saying, yeah, I had feelings. Totally did. Totally still have feelings but, at the same time, I am not tied to any man or tied to Tyler and I’m not going to be.”
“Everything that I said that I feel like I want, deserve, the type of respect that I want from a man, I still believe that,” Brown concluded. “I still am going to hold those standards for any man in my life. So I am going to wait for a man to give me that.”
