Former Bachelorette Andi Dorfman turned pain into profit with her book It’s Not Okay: Turning Heartbreak Into Happily Never After, and her ex-boyfriend Josh Murray is totally, totally fine with it. Unless, of course, you ask him.
In an interview with In Touch Weekly, Murray says he’s over the drama. Still, he steps up to defend himself against Dorfman’s claims that he was never there for her. “The way I’m depicted is just very sad,” says Murray. “I think it’s sad when someone has a platform to help people and they use it to exploit something and tell fictional stories to hurt somebody else. But unfortunately, drama sells.” Murray, who is currently starring on E!‘s new reality show Famously Single, knows that better than anyone.
“At this point, I don’t even care about the backlash from her book,” he continues. “My friends and family know the real me, and that’s all that matters.”
In the book and in public, Dorfman is very open about the very real pain she went through as a result of their breakup. She told Cosmopolitan that “first of all, wine” was a key component of getting through her breakup, and it’s hard to tell if she’s joking. Either way, let’s wish JoJo Fletcher a happier marriage, or at least a more amicable breakup, than these two had.
