Because Wyatt said he was just going on the show to promote his musical career, Stevens decided to stay with him
A few weeks into their relationship, Wyatt told Stevens, that he was in the casting process for the show and gave her the chance to end things with him.
"He just came up, basically said," I've been talking to my mom about this, I just do not think there's a way we can go forward, "she told Entertainment Tonight. "I kind of see where this is going, and I do not feel right, not giving you the chance to walk away. I have to be upfront about it. '"
But now, Stevens feels embarrassed by the whole situation
" Obviously, I've looked back on this, "she told the outlet. "I read the text messages that I sent that I'm like, 'This is embarrassing. How could I let myself be here? How could I let myself believe this? ""
"Someone told me they love me, that's what's best for them, I trusted that. I could never have known that this is what the situation would be. I could never have known that feelings would be involved or hearts would be broken, "Stevens continued. "I know that this story is hurtful to [Hannah Brown]and she's feeling what I've felt, and that's not an easy thing to do or know that I've done. None of it's easy. "
" We talked to Stevens to tell "
" We talked to Stevens, about it like it was a movie like these are characters, "she said of Wyatt's plan to go on the show to promote his career. "Because I did not even know who it was going to be it did not even seem real. Now, in hindsight, I've seen clips and Hannah is so genuine and sincere. If I could have seen this person, I'm seeing it now and how much of her heart she puts into this show ̵
Now, Stevens wants to encourage Brown to remain strong
"Now, I feel so much guilt for letting him go," she said. "If I could say anything to Hannah it would be to hang in there … I never meant to cause anyone any hurt. It's what it is and it's pretty much sucks for everyone involved. I hope she's true to herself. She talked about the whole time and she was a strong woman. I hope that she will keep trusting in that.
