However, LC informed ET that they did discuss being unique, and that she’s realized that she deserves “to be treated like a priority, and not an option.”
Meanwhile, Jessica later commented on an Instagram publish alleging that Mark was sleeping with a number of ladies on the studio he educated at through the present, writing, “Wow. News to me. I only know about one.”
The season 1 forged of Netflix’s hit present lately reunited for a two-year anniversary celebration celebrating success tales Cameron Hamilton and Lauren Speed, and Matthew Barnett and Amber Pike. In an interview with ET’s Rachel Smith, Jessica talked about what went down between her and Mark through the present that viewers did not see — together with that Mark was already relationship one other girl.
“When Mark and I were back in Atlanta, he mentioned on a couple of occasions that he had spent time with another woman. And I didn’t like that, obviously, because I was still trying to see this whole thing through,” she says. “I was also working 40-plus hours a week, so I didn’t have a whole lot of time to be, you know, still swiping left and right on people and and I really wanted his whole heart to be in it, so that was off-putting.”
“Our wedding planning, and, you know, all of these kind of hoops that we had to go through, he was spending time with another woman who he ended up dating for a year and a half actually after the show wrapped,” she continues. “I knew about that, but I didn’t want to pull that into the show considering the feelings I felt, and you know, I was kind of coming out with, like, ‘I don’t know that I’m feeling this sort of way for you. I think I got way in over my head here.’ So, I kept that information to myself.”
Jessica has no regrets relating to not placing that data out through the present in order that she can be perceived higher by viewers, however she informed ET that she did attain out to the opposite girl he was relationship.
“I actually reached out to her and asked her what her feelings were when I was getting so much hate and she never responded to me, but I did once LC and Mark dated. … I don’t know exactly what happened there, but there was another woman,” she says. “That whole thing went down, then I learned that there were multiple other women during the filming of the show, which I had an idea of that, but that’s when that came to fruition and I had a couple girls reach out to me who I’ve become friends with now that gave me some of that information.”
Still, Jessica has no ailing emotions towards Mark.
“I think Mark’s a good person, you know, I think he’s going through life,” she says. “I think there was a lot going on, and I think there’s a lot of ego right when I was coming to him saying in Mexico, ‘Oh my gosh, I’m not feeling this,’ you know, and it looked really bad, my side, and it felt really bad, right, so that probably hurt, and I think that’s why he then felt like he had to go out and do other things.”
Mark is now engaged to his fiancée, Aubrey Rainey, and the 2 welcomed a child boy in April. Jessica has not reached out to him or spoken to him lately, which she says “might be a little inappropriate” contemplating their previous. She does, nonetheless, admit that she wished Mark would have attended the reunion celebration.
“He is the life of the party and he gets along with everyone,” she notes. “I did want to tell the whole story and I wish he would have shown up and had the courage to do so. I think he would have had to face up to two women who were looking for him to validate our truth a bit and I also think he is managing a new relationship that got off to a very quick start, so I think she was pregnant by the time that show happened — by the time we were filming — so I think they were just trying to manage that.”
