The slut-shaming of Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe continues in an unbelievable way, but at least the reality star has a sense of humor about it.
Bristowe reportedly got very, very close to one contestant in particular while filming — so close that there are now pregnancy rumors floating around.
An insider told Life and Style, “Sources close ABC are telling people that Kaitlyn got pregnant during the show — that she is knocked up.”
“Kaitlyn doesn’t want people to think she’s irresponsible, but ABC loves the pregnancy talk,” the source said. “It brings more drama to a sometimes boring, formulaic show… And it worked.”
But when confronted by the rumor on Twitter, the reality star had the best response.
Thank you so much I appreciate all the support. I'm going to name him Elan @theyearofelan

That would be a hilarious response to Bachelorette producer Elan Gale, who is not the person she bedded on the show.
Want to see who she did, though? Watch this promo — the good stuff starts at around 2:20. Spoiler alert, obviously.
Another source said they are not impressed by the way Bristowe is being slut-shamed. “Kaitlyn is being portrayed as slutty,” a second insider told Life and Style. We have to agree, and it pretty much sucks. Only women are given a hard time for having sex on these shows, never the men. Way to perpetuate a double standard!
