‘The Bachelorette’: Kaitlyn Bristowe Wants To Be On Good Terms With Shawn Booth

Kaitlyn Bristowe and her Bachelorette season winner Shawn Booth split about year ago. Bristowe’s since moved on to Jason Tartick (from Becca Kufrin’s season of The Bachelorette), but she’d still like to be on good terms with her ex.

Kaitlyn Bristowe thinks Shawn Booth hates her

Bristowe recently opened up to former bachelor Nick Viall on his podcast, The Viall Files, about her relationship with Booth, and she told him that she’s worried he hates her.

“[Shawn] was never convinced of how much I actually loved him then we finally break up and it was like a year of like ‘can we make this work?’ And then we break up and all of a sudden I did move on quickly, if you look at it from a certain way, I moved on quickly,” said Bristowe.

She continued: “And all of a sudden I like bought the house, I’ve got a guy, I’ve got a new golden retriever, I’m like having my wine business, and so proud of where I’m at and I feel like he might hate me. It makes me sad because all I ever did was try and make him happy and I just feel like he’s still angry at me.”

Bristowe told Viall that she wants Booth to be as happy as she is right now.

“I truly want him to be happy. I guess I just feel so happy with where I’m at in life, I genuinely want the same for him. And I want him to feel happy because then I think we could get to a place where like, we live in the same city. [Nashville’s] not big and we never run into each other,” she said.

Kaitlyn Bristowe wants to be able to see Shawn Booth out in Nashville and not feel awkward

The former bachelorette would like to be able to run into Booth without it feeling awkward. She’d even like to introduce him to Tartick.

“I want to be able to be like, ‘How are you? And How’s Tucker? And this is Jason and I think you guys would really get along.’ I just want it to be in a healthy place,” she said.  

“He’s never gonna want to hang out with Jason. It’s too bad though because he’s a swell guy,” responded Viall.

Bristowe hopes all of her exes think of her fondly.

“I think I’m just an empathetic person where I think I don’t like–like I still think of my ex ex boyfriend and I still want him to have positive thoughts of me. I don’t know I just care too much about people in my life,” she said.

Booth and Tartick will probably never be best friends. But here’s hoping the Bachelor alums can get to a place where they can at least roam Nashville freely without having to fiercely scan every bar they walk into.
