Bachelor star Cassie Randolph has been active on Instagram since her ex-boyfriend’s interview with Robin Roberts on Good Morning America aired — and subsequently went viral — on Wednesday, April 14. In that interview, Colton Underwood came out as gay.
“I’ve ran from myself for a long time. I’ve hated myself for a long time. I came to terms with that earlier this year and have been processing it, and the next step in all of this was sort of letting people know,” Underwood told Roberts. Cassie has yet to speak out about Colton’s sexuality or react to the public apology that he offered her on national television. However, she did thank her followers for “all the kind comments and messages,” adding “it means so much.”
On the April 15 edition of Nightline, more footage from Colton’s sit-down with Roberts aired, according to Us Weekly. In one segment, Colton admitted that he never told Cassie that he was gay. The two met on The Bachelor and went on to date for nearly two years before going their separate ways.
“I don’t know if I ever will get the chance to sit down and talk with her. I would like to. I would like to say sorry for how things ended. … I made mistakes at the end of that relationship,” Colton told Roberts. “I made mistakes at the end of that relationship and I ruined the good memories we had by my actions and what I did to hold on to being straight because I didn’t want to look myself in the mirror. So for that, I’m extremely, extremely sorry,” he said in another segment.
