Tayshia Adams Opens Up About Being 'Personally Victimized' by Reality Steve
On this week’s episode of “Click Bait with Bachelor Nation,” Tayshia Adams told co-hosts Joe Amabile and Natasha Parker how she has been “personally victimized” by reality TV blogger Steve Carbone, better known as Reality Steve.
As some fans are aware, Reality Steve is notorious for publishing Bachelor franchise spoilers and perpetuating salacious gossip about talent.
“I have been personally victimized by him on multiple accounts and it’s deeply personal,” Tayshia said, later adding, “He hasn’t really taunted me with saying, ‘I have this about you.’ Instead, he’s fished around, tried to message all of my friends, tried to message old exes, all of the above, looking for information to talk s--t about me.”
The Season 16 Bachelorette continued, “He has a vendetta against me, and I don’t know what it is. But what I’m trying to say is this man has truly gone above and beyond to bring people down and to try and ruin people’s lives.”
Tayshia is one of several women within Bachelor Nation who have recently spoken out against Reality Steve. Demi Burnett, Jade Roper, Bekah Martinez, Jenna Cooper, and Kristina Schulman have also detailed inappropriate encounters with the blogger.
“It really makes my blood boil that so many women have been victimized by this man,” Tayshia noted.
“He would say things and sometimes you’d believe it because he had concrete proof or you’d just take his word for it,” explained Kristina, who would sometimes ask him not to publish certain pieces of information about her personal life, including unfounded rumors.
“I was like, ‘Please don’t. There are people in my life that this is going to affect, and I haven’t had a chance to tell them,’” she elaborated. “He still posted it.”
