|Ed Swiderski on Bachelor Pad 3!|
Jillian Harris writes on her blog: "I will also be judged for this comment but it would be unfair to Ed if I never said it – I actually thought he was really funny last night. I wasn't mortified once I actually laughed so hard and said to myself "hahahaha yup - that’s Ed!" Remember on The Bachelorette – the night when Ed got tipsy and farted during the rose ceremony? I loved that he let go of his inhibitions that night and took it a bit too far. It allowed me to relax a bit and allowed me to see a vulnerable side of him. There were many things that didn't make Ed right for me (and I am sure he could say the same) but to be honest I had a lot of fun with Ed when he was in "his prime" …
but I also think it's very important to recognize, that that just may have also been the very same reason why we crashed and burned.
I am not saying he didn't take it too far, and also want to clarify that I do NOT "go for" guys who are always drunk and belligerent – but if you read Chris Harrison's recap of that night – or actually MEET Ed in real life, or ask ANYONE who is his friend, Ed is charming, fun, light-hearted and really just wants to make people laugh. He's not perfect. At the end of the day – he'll always be someone that was important to me, I love his friends, I love his family. It's not my style to burn bridges or trash talk. Breakups are good for the heart if you manage them properly and in my case – allowed me to grow, learn and be grateful."
