ABC’s “The Bachelorette,’ featuring Ashley Hebert, upped the drama this season with bad bachelor Bentley, who set out to break Ashley’s heart and succeeded. In the episode that aired June, 6 2011, Bentley shocked Ashley and the other bachelors by saying goodbye and leaving. Ashley Hebert was stunned and heartbroken, because she had fallen head over heels for the hair-obsessed bachelor. Ashley gets heart broken on The Bachelorette
Attached is a video of an ‘Access Hollywood” segment about Ashley Hebert and Bentley.
Bentley’s ex-wiife, Suzette, appeared on “Access Hollywood” to talk about her ex-husband, on June 8, 2011. Show host Billy Bush tried his best to get some meaningful insight from Suzette, but she was not overly forthcoming.
Obviously, there was some kind of problem, because they divorced, but Suzette said that Bentley is a great guy in a lot of ways. She said that she did not know why he acted the way that he did, but that the show did bring out a bad side. She has not talked to her ex, but hopes that he is regretful. She also called him a ‘really good father,’ to their daughter, Cozette.
Suzette makes headpieces for young girls and sells them over the internet. Pictures of Suzette and Cozette are on her website, Cozette Couture.
It was a friend of Suzette’s, Michelle Money (“The Bachelor” – Brad Womack’s season) who texted Ashley and alerted her to the bad intentions of the bachelor named Bentley. Unfortunately for Ashley, she ignored the warning and tried to go by her own faulty radar. Because of some of her dramatic antics, Michelle Money was unpopular with the other bachelorettes during the season that she and Ashley were on the show together.

Bentley used the excuse that he missed his daughter, Cozy, as his reason for leaving the show. Viewers, who had seen him trash-talking about Ashley behind her back, knew better. Ashley herself did not realize the extent of his deception until the show aired.
Show host Chris Harrison had shared, in an interview, that there was a question of whether Ashley would go on with the show after being dropped by Bentley. Chris Harrison talks about bad bachelor Bentley
