Chris Harrison Speaks on DeAnna Pappas Breakup

at . Comments

It was a shocking breakup none of us saw coming.

Chris Harrison opened up Monday about the recent split of the latest star of The Bachelorette, DeAnna Pappas, and her former fiancé, Jesse Csincsak.

The host of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette told 104.3 MY fm's Valentine in the Morning: "DeAnna went to Breckenridge last week and broke up with Jesse. He was stunned. I've talked to Jesse several times, and he did not see it coming."

Chris Harrison claims DeAnna Pappas leaked the break-up to the press early.

"They agreed that this was not gonna get out to the public until Thursday, they were going to release a joint statement and try and keep this above board, and she went out on her own, leaked it, and so he's just feeling a little beat up."

"He really truly loved DeAnna," Chris Harrison said of Jesse Csincsak.

"He was so happy and he's like, 'Let's just go, let's go to Breckenridge, let's go to Atlanta, let's get the heck out of here, and let's live our lives. Let's just get to know each other and hang out.'"

Interestingly, Harrison says that DeAnna Pappas - for all her laid-back, authentic, down to earth charm, has big Hollywood dreams.

He says Pappas has been getting "bad advice" from people like "paparazzi guys, and other people that she's been running into that have filled her head with, you know, these dreams that she's going to come to Hollywood and make it big and do all this stuff. And I think her head's getting a little bigger than it should and I think that's led to this as well."
