west lee’s bachelorette bio – embarrassing, awkward & creepy all at once.

To keep up on my countdown (11 days!) to the premier of  The Bachelorette, I thought we should take a more in-depth look at the West Lee mystery. Thanks to the fine folks at ABC, we’re able to find out a little bit more about Mr. Lee from the random assortment of questions they posed and then posted. Here’s hoping these answers weren’t what got him on the show.

West Lee (abc.com)

West

Age: 30

Occupation: Lawyer

Hometown: Walhalla, SC

Who do you admire the most in the world and why? My step-dad, Pat. He’s patient, funny, smart, successful, but still grounded. He’s very wise, great listener, and gives great advice. He’s someone to aspire to be like.

What is the most outrageous thing you have ever done? Ha, probably trying to get on The Bachelorette, but starred in a movie once, went bungee jumping, lived in Spain for six months, wandered around Europe for a month, maybe not outrageous, but amazing.

If you could be someone else for just one day, who would it be and why? LeBron James, he gets to play basketball for a living. Plus he’s a freak-of-nature athletic and super rich.

If you were stranded on a desert island, what three things would you bring with you and why? A boat? Why does no one ever say boat or a radio transmitter? Okay, I’d bring a lifetime supply of pizza, Mila Kunis, and a volleyball. Mila and I could play volleyball and if something ever happened to her I could name the volleyball Wilson and talk to it.

Would you say you’re a little bit country or more of a city person? Ay my innermost, I’ll always be the kids from the country who went around barefoot and never washed his hands before eating, but these days I fit better in a more metropolitan setting.

Tattoo Count: 0

Some items of note from this hard-hitting bio: 

  • He’s a lawyer. So we know he knows all the legal ramifications of his little murder mystery mix-up. I am guessing this has helped him with that whole situation, although whether or not that is a good thing probably depends on who you ask.
  • What is the Most Outrageous Thing You’ve Ever Done? Well this answer could get awkward and uncomfortable. I’m guessing the answer to this is a semi-lie. Also, good thing he has already bungie jumped. I feel like that could be a date on this season and at least we know he won’t break down and cry like a little baby.
  • He wants to be Lebron James for a day. Wow how thoughtful and interesting of you to pick Lebron. Was it because of his determination to be the greatest, his strong focus on goals or the great work he does for children. Nope, basically because he’s ‘super rich.’ I’ll give him credit for his honesty here but otherwise it’s just another example of the fine Americans they find to compete for fame  love on national television.
  • He’s just a country boy at heart. Forget big-city living and being a fancy lawyer, at his ‘innermost’ West is just a country bumpkin (I can say that because I live in Kentucky. It’s like how you’re allowed to make fun of your parents but no one else is) who wants to run barefoot through the grass. But yuck, c’mon West – at your innermost you’re a dude who doesn’t wash his hands before eating? That’s a little unsanitary and mildly gross.
  • Pizza, Mila Kunis and a volleyball. Does anyone find it a little creepy that he mentions that something could happen to Mila Kunis? I’m just saying. Stay away Mila (and Ashley for that matter). Stay far far away.
  • No Tattoos. Good to know. I’ll make sure to ignore you while playing a drinking game based on drinking whenever an arm band tattoo appears on-screen.
Less than two weeks til the premier friends. Get excited for SE overload.
Until then… stay tuned.

Ashley H. Murder Mystery – Countdown to The Bachelorette

I think we are all anxiously awaiting the premier of The Bachelorette with everyone’s favorite almost-Canadian single gal, Ashley Hebert. Today, as I was scouring the internet on my lunch break looking for juicy gossip to share with my faithful readers (all 10 of you), I came across this little gossip nugget. (Thank you sheknows.com).

Bachelorette Death Mystery: Should Ashley Hebert Be Afraid?
WEST LEE: GRIEVING SPOUSE OR MURDERER

Ashley Hebert may be looking for love in all the wrong places on the new season of The Bachelorette. One of her suitors is being accused of involvement in the mysterious death of his wife.

Ashley HebertAshley Hebert had better sleep with one eye open, say the former in-laws of one of her suitors on the new season of The Bachelorette. West Lee, a 30-year-old lawyer from South Carolina, has a mysterious death in his past: That of his wife, who was found dead in a bathtub shortly after arguing with him.

Although Lee was cleared of any wrongdoing by police, the dead woman’s parents remain convinced he was involved. His former mother-in-law Diane Sapp told Star magazine, “I believe that West was my daughter’s enabler, and I just feel he had something to do with Sarah’s death. I would tell Ashley to think long and hard before getting into a relationship with him.”

According to Star, the circumstances of the woman’s death are just plain suspicious — and Hebert’s potential love interest may have had something to do with it. West and Sarah Lee (yup, like the pies) were smoking pot and arguing about the three separate car accidents in which Sarah had been involved within a matter of days.

According to the police report, West said, “After several minutes the victim stood up and said to the complainant, ‘I’ve just had an epiphany.'”

She drew herself a bath, and when West hadn’t heard any noise for an hour he says he forced open the door and found Sarah submerged and dead.

Sarah’s parents remain convinced West had something to do with their daughter’s death.

“She was in a rehab facility right before she died but West took her out,” her father told Star. “The life they shared was a mess. Partying and drinking were not things Sarah was doing — until she started dating West.”


consider me creeped out (abc.com)

Yikes! This sounds like a 48 Hours Mystery just waiting to be broadcast on a Friday night. Here’s hoping Ashley gives this guy the boot (said in a Canadian accent) in the first episode. And definitely no hot tub dates with this dude. Better safe than sorry.

Oh and if you want to get creeped out. Here’s a pic of  ‘ole West.

Thanks to the very serious journalism of Star magazine for bringing us this story. You can read some more about it here.
