The Golden Bachelor ASKN Ladies Had a Fall out after The Bachelor Cameo – April Throws Shade at the Remaining 3

Before The Bachelor premiere, Joey Graziadei teased a Golden Bachelor reunion with several of Gerry Turner’s contestants.

“I can definitely tease the ASKN ladies will be on an episode, and I know people are gonna love seeing them on their TVs again,” the Bachelor said.

Oh, and he was absolutely right!

There were four special guests from the Golden Bachelor that Joey on his group date – April Kirkwood, Susan Noles, Kathy Swarts, and Nancy Hulkower, who referred to themselves as “ASKN” on The Golden Bachelor.

Joey welcomed the “four gorgeous, stunning women” to the stage who began with their catch phrase — “If you’re ASKN, we’re TELLIN!”

The Golden ladies helped Joey judge the pageant so he can crown one woman as the “World’s Best Kisser.”

However, all’s not well with the group as April was noticeably absent from an ASKN trip to St. Martin.

“For all of the folks from Texas and PA that are daunting me about why I am not going to St. Martin. Although it is none of your business and there are only three people who knew I cancelled but karma never sleeps,” April began a lengthy Instagram caption in January.

“1. I have a job and I can’t keep taking off. 2. My roof had a major leak and I had to pay $4,500.00 so I can’t afford to go. 3. My dogs are freaking out. 4. My son’s birthday is this week and he doesn’t need to see me on a beach at this time in our relationship. 5. I have to go to NY to see my granddaughter and celebrate her 3rd birthday in three weeks so I will be off then. 6. I’m an adult and I have to make decisions that are best for my first love…not partying but my kids and keeping my house,” she wrote.

April then went on to throw shade at the remaining ladies.

“Only three people knew I cancelled and I offered to pay for any fees I might have cost them. So whoever sent you, please respect me and don’t follow me for their dark dealings,” she said of the fans sending her hate.

“This is adult bullying and it is a low, dense energy. This is a poor example of what adult females should act like. I seriously feel like I’m on the Golden Bachelor part two and I’m the new Teresa [SIC] being targeted. Shame on you.”

Kathy Swarts dodged all the questions about the ASKN fallout, hinting that “natural selection” took hold of their friend group.

“We were a group of fearless women who took this on, and the fact remains — we’re all women,” Kathy, said on the “Almost Famous” podcast. “As time goes on, you get to know people better and I think that’s just a natural part of life. I can honestly say, I am friends with everybody on the show.”

“If there’s somebody particular that you’re asking me about, I just think that natural selection takes over,” she said.

“Nancy, Susan and I just got back from St. Martin and had a great time,” she continued. “I might say we did not leave that island in one piece, but we had a great time.”

“I think, like any other season, when you have a bunch of women who are trying to date one man, things happen and people aren’t necessarily themselves. That’s life, it goes on.”
