With a few notable exceptions (we’re looking at you, Jake Pavelka; ditto, Arie Luyendyk, Jr.), Bachelor Nation couples tend to offer fairly staid reasons for why their relationship wilted.As they’re busily shipping off that Neil Lane diamond and hashing out who gets custody of Chris Harrison in the breakup, the once madly in love duos craft statements about their mutual decision to separate and the deep admiration they still hold for each other. And for a minute there, it appeared Clare Crawley and Dale Moss would be following that script.
Confirming their separation on Instagram Jan. 19, the former NFL athlete shared that it was “the healthiest decision for both of us,” noting they continued to want “the best things for one another.” He doubled down when approached by a reporter while out in New York City hours later, insisting that “Clare and I have a lot of love for each other.”
The split was just one of those things, he continued, blaming his and the Sacramento-based hairstylist’s packed schedules. “Honestly, we’ve just got a lot going on in our lives right now,” he explained, adding that they had every intention of remaining in each other’s orbits as friends: “Clare and I will be cool.”
Wellllllll, unless that’s some sort of hip new slang, he shouldn’t bet on it.
Because not 24 hours after the 32-year-old and the franchise’s 16th lead announced the end of their five-month engagement, leaving the door just slightly ajar for a reconciliation, it became clear that their breakup was more Hannah Brown–Jed Wyatt, less Ben Higgins–Lauren Bushnell. Put plainly, multiple sources familiar with the situation tell E! News they believe Moss has been cheating on Crawley throughout their engagement.
He and the woman in question (E! News has chosen not to name her at this time) have been in communication since at least late 2019, but Moss insisted to Crawley, 39, that theirs was merely a business relationship. Still, “Clare has always been skeptical,” says one source with knowledge of the circumstance. “She never trusted the friendship and thought it was shady.” And as their nascent romance began to splinter, her worst suspicions were confirmed.
The first source tells E! News the woman “has been talking to her friends about sneaking around with Dale.” As for Crawley, continues the source, “she has seen proof” that whenever Moss was in New York City without her, he was with his other flame.
One such occasion came in November—not long after Moss’ proposal aired on TV and he brought his bride-to-be home to South Dakota. Spotted enjoying a late-night candlelit dinner at Cipriani Downtown, “It definitely looked like a date,” shared an eyewitness, noting the pair appeared to leave hand-in-hand. “Dale looked really smiley and happy with her. They were laughing and flirting.”
Suffice to say Crawley isn’t the type to subscribe to the it’s-not-cheating-if-you’re-
Signing on to dole out roses after a memorable stint as Juan Pablo Galavis‘ runner-up, two rounds of Bachelor in Paradiseand a brief Bachelor Winter Games engagement, she was unequivocal about her intentions to find her forever partner. “I am looking for a man that is just like my dad,” she explained during her Good Morning America reveal. “Strong, loving, gentle, compassionate and just a real, genuine, kind man.”
Of utmost importance, she stressed, was someone interested in cozy Friday nights on the couch, someone “who doesn’t want to be in the spotlight.”
Basically, someone not like Moss, as she’s come to learn. Because for all of his smooth moves and uncanny ability to, as Crawley put it, “show up for me,” Moss seemed to arrive at Palm Springs’ La Quinta Resort & Club last summer with visions of podcast hosting, modeling work and sponcon dancing in his head, just like others before him.in other words, he was there for the wrong reasons.
Now, as multiple insiders familiar with their relationship describe Moss as a “fame-seeker,” the first source notes the signs were there all along: “It is obvious now. Things are making sense to her now. She didn’t want to believe it at first but is now heartbroken.”
Because Crawley had been certain she’d be able to sniff out an imposter, knowing what she would and wouldn’t put up with. But it turns out intuition is powerless in the face of overwhelming chemistry.
As viewers saw, Crawley believed in her soul that she’d found her guy in Moss from the moment he stepped out of the limo. Sure, she’d done a little Insta digging beforehand and she didn’t hate his chiseled abs and mega-watt smile, but in person there was something else, that inexplicable belief this was meant to be. “I definitely feel like I just met my husband,” she declared breathlessly.
And the more she and Moss bonded over the loss of her father and his mother and, yes, made out, the more certain she was that the rest of her suitors could pack their bags and go home. “We have this connection where it feels like I’ve known him forever,” she explained to producers. “It’s that intangible chemistry that you just can’t make up and you can’t replace.”
Even better, he seemed just as all-in, telling Crawley, “When we met, I felt love and, like, that’s what I came here for. I’m falling in love with you through this process. I’m not afraid to say that at all. My heart is open and I’m not gonna fight that.”
Can you really blame a girl for getting swept up in it all?
By the time she was flashing a shiny new 4.5-carat diamond, Crawley was so far gone, she bristled at the mere suggestion that what they had was anything less than love at first sight.
“How he makes me feel is literally, like, sunbeams out of my heart, like, into the world,” she explained to Harrison at their make-shift After the Final Rose special. “And I know that sounds so stupid, but I just feel it to my core. And whether it took one day or 10 days or two weeks or two years, this man makes me happy.”
So she dove head first into a future as Mrs. Dale Moss, giddily referring to the South Dakota State alum as “my husband”, announcing her intention to have babies ASAP and dreaming up the perfect way to cement their bond with a collection of island-based elopements. And she brushed off any and all criticism.
“I’d be lying if I said it’s been easy because I’m human,” she admitted on Good Morning America of people questioning Moss’ commitment. “The things people say without knowing the full truth and without seeing exactly how things really happened and genuinely happened, it just blows my mind in a world right now where there’s so much negativity and hate and hard things going on right now.”
But, actually, the full truth seems to be worse than most suspected.
Because Crawley couldn’t shake her anxiety that Moss’ friendship wasn’t as platonic as he claimed it to be. “Dale would always reassure Clare that it was nothing serious,” says the source, but “multiple people have told Clare that Dale was parading around NYC with this girl.” Each time, continues the source, “Clare would confront him about his relationship and tried to question him about it, but he would always deny it.”

Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren Tapped for ‘Yellowstone’ Prequel ‘1932’
Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren are jumping on the Yellowstone bandwagon.
The actors will star in the drama’s upcoming 1932 prequel, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The Paramount+ series follows the 1883 prequel spinoff and will introduce a new generation of Duttons.
The series has amassed a somewhat cult following, so it makes sense that the forces behind yet another origin story have decided to go big with the names attached to the project.
It’s unclear what role Ford and Mirren have been cast in, but we’re sure it’ll delight considering their impressive acting resumes.
Per the official synopsis provided by the streaming network, the drama will “explore the early 20th century when pandemics, historic drought, the end of Prohibition and the Great Depression all plague the mountain west, and the Duttons who call it home.”
Pandemics, huh. We know a thing or two about that.
News of the new prequel first broke in February.
“Taylor Sheridan has put roots down for the Dutton Family tree that stand strong and tall, with many branches that continue to engage record-breaking audiences,” 1883 executive producer David C. Glasser said via a statement, adding, “It is awe-inspiring to work with Taylor, ViacomCBS and the entire team on this universe.”
It’s unclear if the plan is to have 1932 span multiple seasons or if it will be a one-season limited series like the previous prequel.
All we know is that if you’re not watching Yellowstone and the blossoming franchise, you’re doing it wrong.

‘Legacies’ Canceled at The CW – Season 4 Will be the Last
It’s the end of a franchise on The CW.
The network officially canceled Legacies, a spinoff of The Vampire Diaries and The Originals.
The news, while heartbreaking, might not be unexpected for those who have been following along and awaiting a verdict.
Things didn’t bode well for the series after the network banished the remaining three episodes from their scheduled May airdates to the month of June.
And when The CW canceled Dynasty, Roswell, New Mexico, Charmed, In the Dark, and 4400 earlier today, things looked even bleaker for the Danielle Russell-led series.
Admittedly, Legacies never reached the heights that its predecessors did, and viewership has only been dwindling.
The series will come to an end with its fourth season.
The CW really broke took a jab at so many fandoms today!
Bad news today. But the GOOD news is we have so much love and support from such a wonderful fandom. The biggest of hugs to all of you. Can't wait for you to see how the series ends. We're going out with a bang and you're gonna love it. #Legacies
— Legacies Writers (@LegaciesW) May 13, 2022
Deadline reports that the network is currently in talks to be sold to station group Nexstar, which could explain the decision to slice its programing roster in half.
It previously canceled Batwoman and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.
Back in March, the network gave green lights for several of its dramas: All American renewed for season 5, The Flash renewed for season 9, Kung Fu renewed for season 3, Superman & Loisrenewed for season 3, Nancy Drew renewed for season 4, Riverdale renewed for season 7, Walker renewed for season 3.
