We didn’t really need any more proof about what an absolute pro Tayshia Adams is, but Kaitlyn Bristowe just gave us some anyway. Kaitlyn offered a little behind-the-scenes intel about how Tayshia, who announced her split from her (now ex) fiancé Zac Clark less than a month ago, was doing when cameras weren’t rolling during the Bachelorette‘s Men Tell All special.
Spoiler alert: Tayshia was struggling. A lot. (But that’s a very normal human reaction to the end of a serious relationship, so, you know, that’s more than fair).
“Tayshia, that day, was beside herself. I’m so proud of her for being so professional and being able to show up and put a smile on her face and do a great job hosting while going through it,” Kaitlyn explained during an appearance on ” data-vars-ga-product-id=”04cb80c0-e429-4822-97e0-640c1dbdabef” data-vars-ga-product-price=”0.00″ data-vars-ga-product-sem3-brand=”” data-vars-ga-product-sem3-category=”” data-vars-ga-product-sem3-id=”” data-affiliate-network=”” data-affiliate=”true”>Us Weekly’s Here for the Right Reasons podcast. “I know she was just really struggling that day because the news had broke, and she was really upset.”
Kaitlyn also got real about addressing Tayshia’s news (or, honestly, any big news) during a televised special like Men Tell All and how easy it is for the whole convo to feel fake or rehearsed.
“It’s hard to put something in there that will feel, you know, staged or scripted because you wanna work it in there and make sure that she has a voice and that she’s able to talk about it [and] not just pretend it didn’t happen or just go through the whole show when she was clearly, like, struggling that day,” she explained (per Us Weekly). “So I was really proud of her, and it was just tough to work in because I wanted to put Tayshia’s feelings first.”
And, FWIW, Tayshia’s feelings were pretty much what you’d expect, given the stuff she was dealing with in her personal life. Not that fans saw the extent of her emotional reaction because, like we’ve already established, she’s an absolute pro, always.
“I saw her in the trailer so upset, she was having anxiety. And I was like, ‘You don’t have to address this if you don’t want to. But I think if you want to have your own voice and be able to, like, just share how you’re feeling, it’s up to you,'” Kaitlyn continued. “I mean, at the end of the day, as long as she was—now, I say comfortable, she wasn’t comfortable with it—but she wanted to address it. And so we had to put it in there somewhere. And honestly, I was just really proud of how she handled everything [because] it felt like a true professional.”
So we agree: Tayshia is a pro and a pillar of strength in human form. End of story.
