Taking to her Instagram Stories, Pieper addressed the uproar.

“Just an [sic] gentle reminder that reality tv isn’t real,” she wrote. “An edited, produced, and cut down show isn’t going to show you every single thing said and done. An edited and produced show can’t show you conversations that happened before filming between friends.”

Pieper went on, writing, “I make light of this show because it’s a light hearted show. I don’t believe in pitting women against each other. I don’t believe men are prizes to be won at the expense of someone’s feelings. I believe in open communication to get answers, not name calling on the internet.”

“At the end of the day it’s a tv show,” she added. “We the viewers are shown what makes the best television, just as [with] any show. And folk what we have here is a very successful show.”

After the conversation was aired, both Pieper and Brendan lost many Instagram followers.
