Laurel Kagay: Just Friends with Wes Hayden

at . Comments

Wes Hayden's mystery "girlfriend" from The Bachelorette has surfaced - and says Jillian Harris has nothing to worry about as far as being two-timed.

Laurel Kagay sat in shock at home as ousted Jake Pavelka returned to the show to rat out Wes for being in a relationship while on the ABC show.

“I was like, ‘What?’” Laurel told People in an interview today. “There was this pause before he said my name. Then he said it quite a few times.”

But Laurel Kagay, owner of Peach Body Boutique in Austin, Tex., says she and Wes are just friends: “I’m absolutely not with Wes, nor would I be if he were going on a show to be with another girl,” she says. “That’s absolutely crazy.”

As for the confusion, she did admit that “I think Wes did say something about his ex-girlfriend. Maybe he said he still cares about me or whatever."

"Maybe Jake blew that into something else. We are good friends and do go out to lunch together, so I can see how people could think we’re together.”

Amazingly, Laurel is also linked to another famous name in The Bachelor franchise - Brad Womack, who chose no one on his season finale.

They dated for four years, Laurel says. Wow.

Oh, and finally, Laurel Kagay has also dated Collin Evans, who was briefly a contender on The Bachelorette season starring Jen Schefft.

Sounds like she has a reality TV-fame seeking type!

What do you think? In light of this revelation from Laurel, do you see Wes differently? Should Jillian Harris choose this "bad boy" singer?

Love Wes! Jillian is not stupid (or maybe she is)! She knew from the beginning that he was a musician and was making a CD. Do you honestly think that she thought he was marriage material and ready to have children in a couple of years? She kept him on because he was exciting and very easy on the eyes! She will miss his kisses! If, she thought there was anyway to have him fall in love with her she would have taken it!!!! The excitement is over now that Wes is gone! He is the Man! Give Jillian some credit...she used him and it all worked out just fine!


Wes was only on the show for the exposure. He said he and his agent discussed it and thought it would be good for his career. He was out for himself. He also said this was all about him. What a jerk. As for Laurel, yeah, now we know about a boutique in Tx. What a couple.


Wes is a weirdo that is clear from the show. He seemed full of it before Jake or anyone ever said anything about a possible gf. He is LAME.


Doesn't anyone think that Laurel and Wes could both be doing this for publicity? After all, she owns her own spa which is now getting tons of publicity due to this whole thing. Wes is getting publicity for his singing career... they could both be just trying to make some money off of breaking someone's heart.
