Former Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe is slamming the creator of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette Mike Fleiss as a “piece of sh-t” who “hates women.”

“They won’t let me [go on the show], ever,” Kaitlyn said during an appearance on Talkhouse Podcast. “I’ll tell you exactly why I can’t go on ‘Dancing With the Stars.’ Anybody that listens to this podcast knows why I cannot go on ‘Dancing With the Stars.’ And it’s because, and I will say this with a mic in my hand and a smile on my face, that Mike Fleiss is a piece of shit. He is the creator of ‘The Bachelor,’ and he hates women.”

Years ago, Kaitlyn said that Mike would not let her do the reality competition show and he responded back in a Twitter exchange.

Hannah Brown, another former Bachelorette, is currently competing and Kaitlyn thinks she knows why.

“There’s some sh-t that came out on him abusing his wife,” Kaitlyn said of Fleiss. “So he’s like, ‘Look at me, I love women.’ As long as he’s in power with ABC, I will never get on that show.”

Jason Tartick and Kaitlyn Bristowe are taking the next step in their relationship!

During the 33-year-old former Bachelorette star announced on her Off the Vine with Kaitlyn Bristowe, the couple announced that they will be moving in together.

“Guess what everybody,” Kaitlyn teased. “Two very big things in the news today, in my world anyways… Jason is moving to Nashville!”

Jason then chimed in saying “it didn’t make sense” for the two of them to be living so far apart from each other.

“Kaitlyn and I got to a point where being across the entire country didn’t make sense,” Jason added. “I think that for the short term and the long term, Nashville was the best place for us to be. It puts us back on the east coast. I’ll be a few hour-drive from my parents, quick drive from my brother, and, it puts us in a better position for short and long-term.”

Jason added: “We’re at the next step in our relationship, where we want to grow even more and we can’t do that in long distance…And we’ve done it.”

As for the second news, the couple are adopting a new puppy named Ramen.

“A friendship turned to a relationship and now a relationship turned to a little fam. This morning, Kaitlyn and I made a decision to adopt, @ramenthegoldennoodle,” Jason captioned the below photo. “Ramen was abandoned and found roaming the streets of South Korea with a broken pelvis from being kicked. Kaitlyn found Ramen through an incredible organization @bunnysbuddies founded by Amanda, when they were fundraising for Ramen’s surgery. We are so excited to give Ramen the life and love he deserves…all under the same roof!”
