Is 'The Bachelor' Season 19 couple Chris Soules and Whitney Bischoff singing sweet songs again? Page Six reported that an insider has confirmed Soules has received a flirty text message from his former fiancé.
The report cited a source overhearing Soules as telling his friends during a dinner in New York that he received a text message from someone named "Whitney." The message included a photo and heart emojis, the insider said. "That had nearby fans' tongues wagging over whether he meant his ex, Whitney from The Bachelor, or his former Dancing with the Stars partner, Witney Carson," the report added.
However, it was unclear if Soules was referring to Whitney Bischoff or his Dancing With the Stars partner Witney Carson who is also rumored to be the reason for the couple's split up. A separate report by Yibada quoted sources that are close to the couple as claiming that Bischoff and Soules are trying to save their relationship.
It added that the former The Bachelor alumni has also confirmed that he still communicates with Bischoff.
In a recent interview with Dan Patrick of Buddy TV Soules maintained that he remains close with Bischoff.
Discussing his break up with Bischoff, Soules said there was not much to say about it. "I mean it was a relationship. She's a great person and she'll be a friend for the rest of my life and I'll always care about her. Just didn't work out. It was two people that were mature and went into a weird situation, came out, tried to make it work," he said.
During the interview, Soules said that while they both tried to keep their relationship, maintaining it outside the limelight was difficult.
"We tried to make it work," Chris said. "We tried to figure things out in the real world. It's much different in the real world than it is on TV, you know, on a TV show. You kind of get the opportunity to, you know, actually experience real life together."
Soules continued, "They don't pressure you to do it [get engaged]. I think the whole experience itself lends itself to like making you feel like you want to go through with that. And of course at the end there's the final rose and, you know, it's a really weird experience and it's hard to explain unless you've been through it."
Bischoff and Soules officially ended their engagement on May 5 over lunch because of Chris' rumored infidelity. A report claimed The Bachelor's other half was dating Dancing With The Stars former partner Witney Carson.
Rumors said, Chris, a farmer from Iowa, has been in touch with Carson even after the end of the dancing reality show. A source told OK! Magazine, "Chris refused to quit speaking to Witney after the show ended. And his relationship with Whitney imploded."
Another report claimed that Soules is back in the arms of Becca Tilly said KDrama Stars. It added that Chris wanted to give his relationship with Becca another try.
"He is not one who would be looking back and thinking that he made a mistake, he chose the girl he was in love with and it didn't work out. Now if he ever bumps into Becca in the future, that is a different thing, he would accept to rekindle something if the fire is still there for both of them,: the report quoted a source close to Soules as saying.
