GRAND RAPIDS, MI -- Hudsonville native Kelsey Poe made an appearance before a crowd of friends and fans of ABC's reality show "The Bachelor" at a viewing party Monday night. While she was unable to give direct media interviews as she is under contract until the show is over, Poe did address those in the crowd and spoke about her experiences.
Poe was portrayed in the show's narrative as manipulative and her integrity was questioned many times. So it isn't a surprise she called being on the show "a rough ride." But she also called it a "blessing in disguise."
