Maybe This Bachelorette Will Live Happily Ever After

ABC/WZZMI don’t know about your house, but The Bachelorette was a big deal in mine.  All of my women, wife and daughters, were glued to the screen.  My wife, Kathy, was geeked about Ashley’s choice.  Don’t know about the daughters.

At any rate, now you start to wonder, how will all of this turn out?  Not well, traditionally.  The couples from all of the Bachelor/Bachelorette shows usually end up apart.

However, despite being brought together under the less-than-real glare of reality TV cameras, Bachelorette Ashley Hebert, 27, and her fiancé J.P. Rosenbaum, 34, say they have the real thing, but they’re not interested in putting that back on the small screen.

“I don’t think you’ll be seeing us on TV unless you Tivoed those episodes,” Hebert says firmly.

“We talk about it in jest sometimes, but no real thought has gone into it.”

Plenty of thought, however, has gone into their relationship, which continues to blossom.

“We built this great foundation. We’ve been engaged for two months, but I feel like we’ve been together for years,” Hebert gushes. “We have a fairytale … but like the world saw, there’s ups and downs. It’s not perfect, but it’s great. It’s a real relationship. It’s not like we’re in la-la-land.”

The ever-supportive Rosenbaum echoes Hebert’s sentiments – and doesn’t shy away from acknowledging their many ups and downs, including villainous contestant Bentley Williams, Rosenbaum’s jealousy issues and Hebert’s tough-talking sister.

“We’ve come to the other side and we couldn’t be happier,” Rosenbaum says.

Now that they are publicly out as a couple, they say they’re trying to wrap their heads around a schedule that includes Hebert completing dental school and moving to New York to live with construction manager Rosenbaum within the next month.

“J.P.’s in New York. He’s settled here, he’s happy here. … I’m really excited to be with him,” Hebert says. “And I have no hesitation about moving in. I think we’re ready for that. … He cleaned out a closet for me. How sweet is that?”

“We haven’t given any serious thought to (the wedding),” he admits. “We’re not going to wait five years to get married, but we’re going to take it one step at a time.”
