Rachel Lindsay, More Bachelor Nation Stars React to Taylor Nolan’s Tweets

Speaking out! Members of Bachelor Nation had a lot to say after fellow cast member Taylor Nolan’s insensitive tweets resurfaced at the end of February. The Bachelor alum’s old social media posts used homophobic slurs, fat-shaming language and insulted Indian, Asian and Jewish communities. Though Nolan, 27, apologized for her past comments in an Instagram video on Sunday, February 28, the response was not enough for many of the psychotherapist’s colleagues and fans. “My tweets from 10 years ago are sh–ty, they suck, they were wrong and are hurtful,” Nolan wrote as she shared a video. “I want to be clear that they don’t take away from the work I do today, they are literally how I got here to doing this work. If you’re gonna take the time and energy to scroll through ten years of my tweets...

Cynthia Rowley on Fashion, Kit's Experience on The Bachelor, and Matt James's Turtlenecks

Fashion designer Cynthia Rowley has become known for her playful prints, romantic dresses, and totally groovy wetsuits, which, in my opinion, put most bikinis to shame. Even though her brand has taken the smart turn toward a more approachable direct-to-consumer schedule, abiding by no fashion calendar, she's seeing a major boost in traffic lately, and it has everything to do with Bachelor Nation. Her daughter Kit Keenan's appearance on Matt James's season was cause enough for search about the powerhouse duo, who also host a lifestyle podcast together called Ageless. "If you want to talk about a spike in engagement and traffic, it's always on Wednesdays," Cynthia Rowley confirmed, as we laughed about streaming The Bachelor the day after it airs on Hulu in order to avoid commercials. "Th...
