Producers behind ABC’s The Bachelor want The Bachelorette stars Dale Moss and Clare Crawley to “go away”, according to a juicy new report alleging that the network is trying to silence the couple.
News broke just last week that Dale and Clare were officially calling it quits and now, producers reportedly want the couple to stop talking about their relationship so that viewers can focus on The Bachelor as we head into the second half of Season 25.
“Everyone on the show signs a contract that they cannot do press without permission for one year after the season finale airs,” an insider tells OK! Magazine exclusively. “Dale is still under contact and runs the risk of getting sued if he opens his mouth.”
“The new season of The Bachelor is airing right now; and they want viewers to focus on Matt James’ love story, not the disaster that Dale Moss and Clare Crawley have become,” continued the insider, referencing the currently-airing Bachelor Season 25.
Producers behind ABC’s The Bachelor aren’t happy with Dale Moss or Clare Crawley, according to insiders.
As fans of The Bachelorette are aware, Clare Crawley made reality TV history when she quit the series just a few episodes in, citing her love for contestant Dale Moss. The two left the show together and Clare was replaced by Tayshia Adams.
“When she decided to blow-up The Bachelorette and leave early with her man, producers wanted to move on quickly and focus on her replacement,” revealed the insider, adding that producers just want to put the entire ordeal behind them. “Casting Clare was a mistake that the show would rather forget. However, it looks like it is going to be a problem that won’t go away.”
Clarifying that Clare will not be asked back to the franchise, despite rumours, the insider made it clear where ABC stands: “They want this couple to just go away.”
While we understand that ABC may want to put the chaos of last season behind them, the drama of these relationships after the show ends has always been a driving point for the show itself and we don’t see why Dale and Clare should be any different.
The Bachelor airs Tuesdays on ABC.
