The Bachelor's Leah Reveals SURPRISE Truths About Her Exit
Last night’s episode of The Bachelor saw ‘villain’ Leah Costa kicked out of the house after Matty J accused her of not being ‘upfront’ about her past as a topless waitress.
However, Leah told 96FM’s Hour of Power hosts Kyle and Jackie O her side of the story.
As far as her past goes, Leah revealed that she ‘hardly knew the guy’ and ‘besides a few group dates she’d spent 10 minutes with the guy’, so didn’t feel the need to divulge her ‘dirty laundry’.
My past is my past, a book on the bed stand. At any point, I can pick it up and revisit the joy or pain, but its contents will not rule me anymore. The life still ahead of me is a clean white page. There is work to be done. A world to be explored and stories inside of me aching to be told. #TheBachelorAU #thebachelor #bachie #bachy #mattyj #cocktailparty #bye #truth #honest #ciao
Jackie asked her about the moment Matty’s sister was introduced, and it was revealed that she wanted to get to know the girls. Leah then ‘instantly’ started crying - and Jackie wanted to know why.
“That was a bit cut… so they stood there and they hugged and he said, ‘this is my sister, she’s my best friend’, my brother is my best friend, we live together and I was just so homesick.”
‘Oh, they made it out like you were crying because you knew your secret was about to come out.” Jackie said.
“No! I was SO homesick, my brother is my best friend, and you know, I hadn’t spoken to him in five weeks.”
The guys then asked Leah if Matty was her ‘cup of tea’ anyway. Her answer surprised everyone.
“Honestly, I think I was in love with Matty before I went in and then I was incredibly disappointed.”
“Everybody’s cut and edited to make it a certain way, and you know, Australia was cut and edited to fall in love with Matty.”
