A Bachelorette tell-all? The latest runner-up on the ABC series, Arie LuyendykJr., is penning a book about his life, his manager confirms to In Touch.
“He’s pursuing a writing deal,” Arie’s manager, Klint Briney, tells the mag, on newsstands now.
And insiders say Ari — who finished second to Jef Holm on Emily Maynard’s season — has tons he could spill!
“A lot of crazy crap happened during the filming of The Bachelorette, and it got even crazier afterward,” a show insider explains.
As In Touch previously reported, Arie walked off the show and broke things off with the 26-year-old North Carolina resident after learning she had gone behind his back and slept with Jef in the Fantasy Suite.
But fans may be even more interested in what Arie could reveal about life after The Bachelorette. “Arie knows a lot of the ugly stuff that went down with Emily and Jef.”
The race-car driver publicly shared his alliance with the Utah businessman just one day Jef and Emily announced their split, tweeting, “Hanging with @jefholm while he’s in Arizona, I can tell you that he is still the coolest guy I know!”
Arie is now dating the latest Bachelor winner, Courtney Robertson, who recently split with her fiancé, Ben Flajnik.
