  2. Kelly Stafford:

    Alright, y' all, here's what I do best : Coming back to apologize, after I read some of your things and I get grounded a little bit, i'm really sorry. I was in the heat of the moment. I have a friend losing her business. It's just getting to me a little bit, so I apologize for calling it a dictatorship -- probably a not so smart use of words. But yeah, I just want it to work for everybody, and I know it's not going to work for everybody, and it just kills me to see people suffer a financial burden from losing their business, and also from getting sick. But I don't know -- I apologize.

  4. Kaitlyn Bristowe:

    Alright this is an Instagram Story I did not think I'd be doing tonight but Clint, who was on my season of the Bachelorette, I'm going to say tragically, he's tragically passed. 34 years old. I'm not sure what happened, how it happened. All I want to say is that from knowing him on the show even though things didn't end on the best terms for us, from his time on the show til today I've heard nothing but incredible things about that person. From his peers, his students, his coaches, his teachers, his friends his family, Clint was very well respected in his world and it is an absolute tragedy of what's happened, i just don't know much right now and it's none of my business. This Instagram Story is literally to just say to anyone who knows him, who might follow me, that I am so sorry. It's such a huge loss and I'm honestly just beside myself with this news. If there's anything I can do, anything at all, please let me know and let's all just say a prayer or be there for Clint's family during this time. Gosh, I'm just so sorry.

  5. Robert Trump:

    I have a wonderful brother. We have a great relationship for a long time, from day one, so long time ago. And he's in the hospital right now, hopefully he'll be alright, but he's -- he's pretty -- he's having a hard time.
