Could ya’ll believe it last week on The Bachelor when British hunk Matt Grant gave Marshana a rose during the two-on-one date, sending Holly Durst immediately packing? Only last week he had been heating things up with Holly on the Made of Honor red carpet and in a hot tub! I had to know if Holly was still po'ed about her abrupt elimination. Turns out, not so much.

“Not getting a rose was a blessing in disguise,” Holly tells me. “There’s something better out there for me, so I was happy for the end result.”

Could that be because the 25-year-old children’s book author, who’s been linked to American Idol alum Justin Guarini, is already betrothed to another? “There were rumors I was engaged to my illustrator, and that’s why I left the show,” Holly laughs. “That’s definitely not true. Not at all.”

And no, there won’t be a second chance if Matt decides he made a mistake. “I’d go out and have fun, but I don’t think a relationship could come out of it,” Holly declares. “He’s not my kind of guy, and I realized that when I left the show.”


Holly, whose first book, I Miss You, is out this summer, thinks Amanda has the best chance of getting the final rose from Matt. But don’t count Marshana out. “She was giving him a lap dance on another show and I was watching his reaction,” Holly says. “He seemed to be very into it.”

The Bachelor: London Calling airs Monday, April 14 at 10 p.m. on ABC.
