  • Hi everybody.

  • Hi!

  • Hi Ellen!

  • OK.

  • I'm really-- I'm pleasantly shocked that as many people

  • know about this show and are watching the show as I

  • am because when I started watching it

  • nobody here was watching it.

  • I told all of the producers, the writers to watch it.

  • Before we get into this, you explain

  • what the show is briefly and then why the hell

  • you'd want to do it.

  • Yeah.

  • Well, I mean, you know, the show is basically about 15 women,

  • 15 men.

  • We meet and we talk through a wall.

  • We try to find love, right?

  • If it works out then you get engaged and possibly

  • married in the end.

  • Right.

  • So through a wall.

  • So the whole point is about personality only.

  • Right.

  • Right.

  • And why did you choose to do this?

  • I mean, I chose to do it because, you know,

  • basically my dating life wasn't going that well and, you know,

  • I was like let's see what happens.

  • And a year and a half later, here I am with this awesome man

  • right here.

  • Yeah, yeah.

  • That's what's amazing.

  • Just a year and a half ago.

  • All right.

  • So who went in thinking that you were going to find love.

  • Anybody going in going this could work.

  • I honestly only chose to do it because I was out of work

  • at the time and I was going stir crazy

  • because I was on workman's comp so I couldn't leave,

  • I couldn't do anything.

  • I was like, "I might find love, this could be interesting.

  • Why not?"

  • And I ended up with a whole husband like what?

  • For me, it was very cosmic.

  • I was at a bar with a group of girlfriends

  • and I was telling them how there are no men for me in the city.

  • And at that moment, I got a DM on Instagram,

  • and it was this person telling me, "Hey, you can fall in love

  • and potentially get married."

  • And I was like, "This is the universe speaking to me."

  • Wow.

  • I'm probably one of the most interesting cases

  • because they actually found me on Tinder so.

  • I started chatting with this girl, hit it off,

  • she's like, "Add me on Instagram."

  • Had a pretty good connection and then she's like,

  • "I'm a casting producer."

  • And I'm like, "Catfish haha."

  • And then now I'm here.

  • But how-- you get to the altar and you

  • seemed genuinely surprised.

  • Did you?

  • Did you?

  • I mean, I was surprised too although Portia

  • said he's crying and that was the giveaway

  • that you were going to say no.

  • Well, he loves to cry.

  • He's always crying.

  • He's a big softie.

  • But-- but really, that was a surprise to you?

  • Yeah.

  • I just-- I went in hoping for the best.

  • I went through trials and tribulations with him

  • and not knowing what to expect but hoping.

  • I'm in my wedding dress, I'm going to get married.

  • And at that moment where he was like, "I do not."

  • I went through shock, anger, sadness, understanding,

  • and acceptance all in a really short time frame.

  • And you saw a little tumble.

  • Yeah, fell down.

  • But I got back up and dusted it off.

  • But I really just wanted to have a time to myself

  • and start the healing process.

  • Right.

  • But then you went back to him.

  • Yes I did.

  • Yeah, because you knew-- because he was saying he does love you,

  • but he just didn't want to marry you.

  • Yes.

  • Because you were kind of all over the place

  • with your emotions.

  • Yeah.

  • And I mean, I think that's just--

  • you know, marriage is such a final thing.

  • And obviously, I'm so happy that you guys

  • all decided to take the plunge.

  • And I really wanted to go through

  • what is it going to be like when things get hard

  • and when that was--

  • when that was happening, he realized

  • maybe we need to be best friends first

  • and you know, I respect his decision.

  • Obviously, we're dating, and everything

  • happens for a reason.

  • So y'all are dating, you're not married.

  • Right.

  • Because it was a year and a half ago that this was--

  • I didn't know it was that long ago that it was shot.

  • So y'all have been married for a year and a half.

  • A whole year and a half.

  • You've been married for a year and a half.

  • Yeah.

  • Wow.

  • So y'all moved in together right away when this show was over?

  • Well, for me, I actually kept my place for about three months

  • after we were done.

  • I had to make that transition.

  • But after that, I got rid of my place.

  • Now we're in our home.

  • Right, our home.

  • And I was so proud of her because she had never

  • lived with another man before, but she kept a level head

  • the entire time and I'm just proud of her for that.

  • And y'all moved in right away.

  • We did, and then I found out the house was haunted

  • when he left me by myself there while he went to Amsterdam,

  • and I was like, "Um, I don't know.

  • Should we stay here?"

  • What do you mean it was haunted?

  • It was haunted, Ellen.

  • Our dog--

  • All right, that's my show.

  • Nobody take this one.

  • I'm doing a show with the haunted house y'all live in.

  • Our amazing dog Goda was laying in the bed with me one day

  • and she started growling and barking

  • at absolutely nothing in the closet,

  • and I caught something moving across the screen

  • when I started recording her.

  • I was like, "No, thank you."

  • All right.

  • I have a lot of questions so we're going to take a break

  • and we're going to have more.

  • More questions, more answers.

  • We'll be back.

  • We're back with the cast from-- you're not really a cast,

  • from Love is Blind.

  • You're people, you're not actors.

  • All right.

  • So there was a incident with Jessica

  • who also was very interested in you,

  • and she wasn't completely honest during the show.

  • And so I want you to see the clip for those of you

  • who haven't seen it.

  • And then Amber, I would like you to address it.

  • And the Barnett thing that happened in the pods,

  • it's over.

  • It was a complicated situation to begin with and getting over

  • that might take a while.

  • But if it was still a thing, if it was still

  • in your head, that would have been disrespectful

  • and that would have made me literally beat your ass.

  • Baby, for sure.

  • If you were to ever to actively go after my husband,

  • I would destroy your life.

  • Look at me.

  • OK.

  • Baby, I'm not worried about you, I never have been.

  • Promise me.

  • Never not ever.

  • All right.

  • That was fun.

  • Yeah.

  • That was fun to watch, I bet, a year and a half

  • later when all this time you thought

  • that she was really saying, you know,

  • "I don't have those feelings."
