Bentley Williams swept Ashley Hebert into his arms and carried her over to the fireplace, where they later shared their first kiss, on this season’s second episode of The Bachelorette. “Do you think you’re Prince Charming?” she asked him. “I think you do.”
Prince Two-faced seems more like it. As viewers of the show know, while Bentley, 28, a divorced Utah businessman, was leading Ashley to believe he liked her, he was saying awful things about her when she was out of earshot. We’ve got the inside scoop on Bentley’s dishonest ways in this week’s OK! — on sale everywhere Thursday!
Before appearing on The Bachelorette, as several friends reveal, Bentley was inching closer to a full reconciliation with his ex-wife, Suzette Davis, 31, the mom of his daughter, Cozette. They were married for two years but divorced in 2009. “They were together all the time and looking for houses, to start again,” says a friend of Suzette. “He was saying he loved her.”
Suzette, who is a practicing Mormon like Bentley, was shocked when she heard through a friend that Bentley had signed on to do The Bachelorette. When confronted, he tried to convince his ex that he was only doing it to promote his business, a sports center called Airborne Trampoline Arena.
“Before he left, he promised Suzette he wouldn’t do anything to hurt her — he wouldn’t kiss Ashley or be a disappointment to their family,” explains a source close to the former couple. “The fact is that he did kiss Ashley and he did act like he liked her — Suzette was heartbroken and disappointed and felt very betrayed.”
