1. "People like to fabricate stories." The Bachelor's Bella Varelis has denied 'wanting to be an actress'.
Bella Varelis wants everyone to know that she never wanted to be an actress.
The Bachelor frontrunner responded to a negative comment made on The Wash Instagram account, which claimed she moved to LA and tried to make it in the industry.
"I've never moved to LA, I've never wanted or tried to be an actress in Australia, never wanted or tried to get work in LA and certainly am not acting on The Bachelor," Bella replied to the comment.
"People like to fabricate stories in order to maintain some sort of relevance and feel important. It’s unfortunate that you and many other people have believed it but I can confirm – my tears weren’t acting, they were real (hence why you’d think it was bad acting – because it wasn’t acting at all)."
The rumours all started when former Big Brother contestant Michael Beveridge told the Friendship Rose podcast that his ex-girlfriend told him that Bella was moving to LA to act.
Michael, who used to run an influencer management company with his ex-girlfriend, called up his ex to ask if she was still managing Bella.
"She's like 'Well I still get her work, but she moved to LA.' She [Bella] was like 'I'm moving to LA because I want to be an actress'," Michael explained on the podcast.

Some of the comments in this chain from @thewashonline post were deleted by the fans I think, but people were essentially saying Bella's an actress cause some random podcast said it a few weeks ago. And also because she dated one former Bach star in 2017 (Sam Johnston, Georgia Love season) and was linked to another in 2019 (Dean Unglert, US Bachie) that means she has 'slept around' the entire cast. I know we all love the tea and drama and speculation but can people pls try not get this level of invested where it starts to read as mean? Good on Bella responding so nicely #thebachelorau
Bella also responded to Instagram comments that she "slept around with Bachie boys" after she previously dated Bachelorette contestant Sam Johnston, who appeared on Georgia Love's season.
