Leslie Fhima is has caught Gerry Turner’s attention on The Golden Bachelor since day one, but is she the one who wins his heart in the end?
The season 1 of Golden Bachelor has seen several contestants leave the show due to personal reasons — and Leslie Fhima was almost one of them.
Right after Joan Vassos decided to leave the show, Leslie got a phone call from home that almost made her pack her bags and leave.
“I called my son and he needed me,” she shared.
But Leslie’s son wanted her to finally get her happily ever after, telling her, “Please stay,'” she recalled. “‘You have to stay.'”
“With our age comes life. And just because your kids are bigger doesn’t mean they don’t have problems,” Leslie continued. “So, we’re a mother first and if my son had said, ‘I need you now,’ I would have left. Because that’s who I am.”
She then went on to have ‘the best’ one-on-one date with Gerry Turner.
“[My son] gave me the gift of staying and having an amazing date with Gerry, which I think changed our relationship, took it to a different level,” Leslie added.
Is that a hint that she wins the show?
The 64-year-old claimed she dated Prince when she was younger.
Her son Eli shared the same story in a recent interview with the Minnesota Star-Tribune, telling the outlet that his mother broke up with Prince to tour Europe.
(Leslie was a former professional figure skater.)
“Not only did she date Prince, but she broke up with Prince,” Leslie’s son said.
Prince allegedly wrote “Sexy Dancer,” a song on his second, self-titled album, about her, according to several family members.
Do you think Leslie is the one Gerry chooses in the end?
The Golden Bachelor airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. EDT on ABC.
