The Bachelorette Winner’s Other Woman Speaks Out

Lindsey Johnson has something she wants to get off her chest.

The woman that Bachelorette winner Ed Swiderski allegedly slept with just one week after proposing to Bachelorette Jillian Harris tells Us Magazine that she’s sorry she got involved with him—and Harris probably will be too.

Swiderski is rumored to have hooked up with Johnson in the days following his televised engagement and, moreover, to have sent flirtatious text messages to yet another woman, Bethany Steffen.

Now Johnson is coming forward to explain her side of the sad, sordid story.

“I feel terrible,” Johnson says. “As Bethany has said, Ed has a way with words and this is what he did to both of us!”

Johnson, who says she broke it off with Swiderski on August 1, claims that, when she told Swiderski she was going public with their relationship, he at first granted her his blessing—and then got cold feet later that day.

“I think you should just talk to me if you have any questions,” Swiderski allegedly texted her.

Swiderski has publicly denied the relationship.

“But if he can live with what he said on his conscience, that’s his problem because he knows the truth and I know the truth and our friends know the truth,” Johnson says. “I mean, he doesn’t have to deny it all and he doesn’t necessarily have to confess everything either on national TV. He could have taken a middle road and said something more truthful.”

Yeah, but where would the fun be in that?
