There is a possibility that Gabby Windey and Erich Schwer may get back together again in the future.
Just a few days after it was reported that the couple had broken off their engagement, presenter of The Bachelorette Jesse Palmer gave an update on the exes’ relationship.
On Saturday, Palmer, who is 44 years old, told Us Weekly that she had “spoken to her yesterday [and] talked to Erich this morning.” “I’m aware that they’re still trying to figure things out, so I’m simply going to give them the space that they need at this time.”
The host of the first season of Bachelor in Paradise and the current season of Bachelor in Paradise continued by saying, “[They are] two beautiful individuals, and everyone saw the potential in that relationship, and just wish them the best for whatever that is, whatever it is.”
“Gabby Windey, you have my undying affection. You are fantastic. You are without a doubt the most incredible person I’ve ever come across. It’s going to be you and me until the car stops moving, “While Schwer was making his proposal to Windey, he remarked. “You have completely taken my breath away, and I can’t imagine a more perfect way to spend the rest of my life than at your side. Gabby, you have my undying affection.”
In the time leading up to his proposal, Schwer received criticism for a yearbook picture that had emerged showing him in blackface. He eventually offered an apology to the public for his actions in the photo. In addition, he was criticized for several messages that were made public and seemed to indicate that he had broken up with an ex in order to join the ABC series.
When asked how both events impacted their relationship, Windey told PEOPLE, “Ultimately it was a time for us to take a step back and reflect on our relationship and see if we can get through this.” Windey was referring to the fact that they had to figure out whether or not they could survive both events.
As she said, “You need to really lead on your communication and be extremely honest with each other when having these difficult talks.” “We are examining the ways in which we may improve as a result of both.”
After the concert, Windey and Schwer gave off the impression that everything was going well for them. Schwer would show her support for Windey when she competed on Dancing with the Stars by being at each of her live tapings. Windey’s performance on the show improved significantly as a result. In recent weeks, however, viewers have begun to notice Schwer’s absence from the crowd, and she was ultimately shown on the Disney+ series sans the engagement ring that she had been wearing.
In response to a question about whether or not the two are still going strong, Windey said last week, “I have a feeling that both of our lives right now are simply really hectic for no other reason than that. So, I do understand their anxiety, but at this point, you know, we’re just sort of moving ahead with each of our own hobbies while continuing to support each other from a distance.”
Windey can be seen participating on Dancing with the Stars on Monday evenings at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. ET live on Disney+. Bachelor in Paradise airs on Mondays and Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
