    Katie Claims To Be Happily Engaged, Yet She Spent 15 Minutes Berating Greg On Live Television

    Someone needs to inform Katie about the true definition of "gaslighting."

    Last night, Katie's season of The Bachelorette finally came to an end, but it wasn't the traditional ending to a normal season. After Michael self-eliminated to be with his son, Greg did the same because he felt like he and Katie "weren't on the same page."

    In case you forgot, he opened up to her and she responded with, "I like looking at you."

    After these events, Katie was left with two suitors — Blake and Justin. However, after her fantasy suite night with Blake, she decided that he was the one and told him she loved him.

    The next day, she broke up with Justin, which means his DMs are open, ladies!!

    Cheers to the happy couple, whatever. I'm not here to talk about Katie and Blake, but rather Katie and Greg, and her treatment of him during "After the Final Rose."

    *Record scratch* 

    Let's rewind a bit — the evening's penultimate interview was with Greg, who hadn't seen Katie since their time on her season. Their relationship didn't end well, to put it mildly, but he seemed to be gracious about it all:

    This seems like a really healthy reaction. 

    After this, I boldly assumed that Katie would come out and have a respectful, closure-filled conversation with Greg, but when she strutted on stage without hugging or acknowledging Greg's existence, I quickly realized that would not be the case.

    Right out of the gate, Katie claimed that Greg was "acting" the entire time he was on the show:

    Katie said that she was "hearing things" about Greg going to acting school and she's been "hearing" that Greg isn't "this shy guy act that he was [on] the show...but this cocky boy from Jersey who knows that he's hot shit...so paired with those rumors and acting school, I really don't know if I actually know who Greg is." Maybe instead of relying on rumors, you could just TALK TO THE MAN?

    Live footage of my reaction when I realized that Katie was tearing down Greg's character on national television based on RUMORS!

    Rumors...and watching an edited show...instead of asking Greg and recounting your own memories from your experience on YOUR SEASON...I don't even know where to start, y'all. 

    What it comes down to is that Greg left because he didn't feel what he needed to feel from Katie — that they weren't on the "same page" — and she keeps talking about giving him reassurance "week after week after week," but then in that same breath, when Greg asked why she didn't leave with him when he asked, her response was, "I still [didn't] know who I [wanted to] be with."

    I am confused as to how one can possibly be mad at someone for protecting their heart when you just admitted that you weren't sure if he was the one for you...

    Imma say it — Katie was being a bully. I understand that she was hurt, but also, at the end of the day, you said Greg wasn't your "one," yet you tore him a new one on national television because he realized that and left...? I'm really tryna find the logic here.

    Needless to say, Bach Nation is D-I-V-I-D-E-D. Some people are #TeamKatie:

    But an overwhelming majority of the internet is #TeamGreg:

    “A relationship is a two way street. And yes I know you’re the bachelorette, but still that doesn’t put you any higher on this relationship or me and lower. I emptied my heart out to you on that couch and all I got was a pat on the back” GREG PREACH #TheBachelorette

    Greg is handling this very maturely and respectfully so good for him because not everyone can do that apparently #TheBacheloretteFinale #TheBachelorette

    So did Katie forget that she said “I just love looking at you” to Greg right after he poured his heart out? #bachelorette #TheBachelorette

    I haven’t watched this whole season, but why is Katie going in so hard on this Greg dude while she’s happy in her own engagement? This feels really unnecessary… #TheBachelorette

    “When Greg left so did everything I felt for him” this 20 minute temper tantrum says otherwise #TheBachelorette

    Katie is not coming across the way she thinks she is... the girls last season may have been on to something... #TheBachelorette #TheBacheloretteFinale

    Katie just answered her own question!!!!!!!! greg wanted her to say there was no one else, and she couldn’t say it, so he left? just because you don’t like him drawing a boundary doesn’t mean he’s gaslighting or talking down to you??? #TheBachelorette #TheBacheloretteFinale

    You either die a hero... or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain. #TheBachelorette #bachelorette #TheBacheloretteFinale

    But everyone seems to agree that Katie and Blake are on borrowed time...
