Rachel Recchia is Dating Greg Grippo? She answers

It’s been a month since the ‘dumpster’ finale of The Bachelorette and Rachel Recchia is ready to move on.

“I’m not actively trying to date at all, but I do feel like I’m not in a position where I’m, like, so broken that I need months to heal. That’s the consensus I’ve seen online — ‘she needs to heal,’” Rachel tells Kaitlyn on her “Off the Vine” podcast.

“I’m OK. I’ve been doing the work. And I’ve been broken up with Tino since before you guys knew. So I do feel like I am in the spot where I do want that, but I’m not, like, on the dating apps. I don’t want to start doing that yet. Because it’s so sad to me that’s where I’m at, honestly. Going to full seasons and then to end up right back where you started? That’s where it’s frustrating.”

Would she do the Bachelorette once again?

“If I was single and they said they’d pay me a million dollars to do it. I don’t know if I could do it again.”

Rachel also spoke about Tino’s red flags.

“Like, It’s just difficult and then to see some of the things that he would say in his interviews and kind of treating it like it was a game or even just watching back me, like, saying how I felt to him and having his reaction be so just, like, nothing behind the eyes. In the moment, you don’t see it because, like, you’re in love. And then you watch back and you’re like, ‘Oh my. Wow.’ Some of these things I saw were really hard to watch. It was horrible.”

Are Rachel Recchia and Greg Grippo dating?

The Bachelor fans were left wondering when Rachel showed interested in dating Greg. Apparently, she followed him on social media and he followed her back. 

When asked by Kaitlyn if there’s something going on there, Rachel said, “I would definitely flirt with Greg Grippo. I followed him and then he followed me back.”

So, that wasn’t a NO!

What did she learn from the show?

“It’s crazy how watching yourself back, like, forces you to grow and learn. And watching myself back, I’m like, ‘Oh, my God, I made so many mistakes,’” Rachel told Kaitlyn. “And I so badly want to stand there be like, ‘I was perfect, I stand by my decisions.’ I watched myself be so dumb — over and over and over again. And I’m like, ‘You have to learn something from that.’ So it has been a learning experience, for sure. And there’s so many things I feel like I can take from it. If it’s not a relationship, at least just like lessons for the next one.”

When asked what she would tell her past self, she said:

“I would go back to, like, right when The Bachelor ended, because I feel like, at that point, I had, like, no direction. I had no idea what was happening. I would just be like, ‘It’s OK.’ And then also be like, ‘Don’t be a dumbass on your own season. Get your s—t together!’” she admitted. “I feel like I could have went back and told myself so much — like night one, I wish I could just whisper in my ear and just be like, ‘Don’t.’ Period.”

Rachel also revealed where things stand with Aven and said she’s definitely open to seeing what happens with him.

“I just care about him so much that I genuinely just want him to be happy in whatever capacity that is with me or, like, whatever it is,” Rachel said. “I just really want to see him just thriving. So what’s to come? I don’t know. I mean, I’m definitely open to seeing what happens but it’s two people, we’ve been through so much. I just got back to L.A. from everything that happened [on the] show—New York, I was in Vegas. So I think we’re both kind of just going to see where it goes—if it goes anywhere.”
