Ashley and J.P. to doubters: 'We're gonna prove them wrong.'

Bachelorette Ashley Hebert and her chosen one, J.P. Rosenbaum, visited Good Morning America earlier today to confirm that they will never be able to sit more than an inch apart ever again for fear that someone will think their relationship won’t last. Watch the interview below. J.P. says Ashley is going to finish school at Penn, move to New York, find a place to live with him, get a job, and, once they’re settled, they’ll talk about having a wedding as early as fall 2012.

J.P. also said Ashley did a good job of preparing him for what he’d watch her do with other men on the show. “That’s one thing she did extremely well,” he said. “We talked about it before, we talked about it after. All my concerns she addressed. She was completely reassuring and comforting. She was wonderful throughout all of it.”

The couple maintained that J.P. and Ashley’s sister, who told them J.P. wasn’t the man for Ashley immediately after meeting him, are now best buddies. “Come on,” Robin Roberts said doubtfully. But I buy that: If you learn to like someone after initially disliking them, you like them even more than you would have if you’d been a fan from the start because you feel guilty. (I call this the Vincent D’Onofrio Effect.) Reminded that Bachelor/Bachelorette fans are skeptics, and rightfully so, Ashley said, “We’re gonna prove them wrong.” Added J.P., “This is something special.”

Think they’ll make it?

    JP also has a bridge in Brooklyn to sell you…

    • freak

      I wonder how much he is asking for it, would you happen to know? Man if I owned that bridge I would charge three times, when you get on in the middle and to get off it.

      • RaRa

        @Chang – Tell me your friend’s name and the celebrity’s name. Otherwise, get off our boards, Ms. Spam-a-lot.

    • ashley

      I’m super cynical and strangely addicted to this show. Gotta say, I do see this one lasting. I saw a connection early on. JP is very sexy – no way she’s gonna let that go.

      • Brenda

        I just don’t see whatever it is that you think is sexy about JP. He would look a lot better with hair to hide those ugly veins and bloody scratches on his scalp. I just think he is totally unattractive,but then I don’t sleep with him.

    • sam

      i’m not sure if JP is a lucky guy — ashley is easily the most annoying bachelorette in history and historically the lowest rated season ever. I do hope they work out.

      • han2thebanan

        JP is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO fine. And Ashley is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO annoying! I thought this season was going to be an interesting one to watch, but instead I just wanted it to be OVER and done with! She doesn’t deserve him. She’s lucky, he’s not.

  • ‘Lish

    Ha! No. Of course not.

  • Marissa

    Saying it will last over and over again does not mean it will, Ashley and JP!

    • wino

      of course everyone is skeptical, but if they are really in love, they will last. only time will tell. heck, i didnt think jason and molly were for real and theyve proven me wrong. you never know.

  • Regina George

    Are you kidding? Of course it won’t. Not to be pessimistic or anything.

  • Corran

    What a difference Robin Roberts is to the snarky Kristen Baldwin.

    • Topher

      Thou shall not talk the ish about The Lady Baldwin of Snark. She is amazing and honestly the only reason I watch this show. I can’t wait to read her recaps.

      • TorontoTom

        La Baldwin is the BEST thing about The Bach’ette!!

      • People Everywhere

        Kristen Baldwin comes across as a jaded-because-she-thinks-its-cool c-u-n-t.

      • RaRa

        @People – And you, on the other hand, are the very epitome of class?

  • Tyler

    Ashley’s hot sister was right about JP. You could tell last night on “ATFR” that she still hated him. Maybe when she is vindicated she will be asked to be the next Bachelorette. It wouldn’t be 1/1000th as boring as this season was.

    • TorontoTom

      Ashley’s inky sister is America’s version of Pippa.

      • Mike

        Kat von Pippa.

    • Flowers By Caroline

      I agree!

  • Al

    The earliest they will get married is more than a year from now? It sounds like they aren’t that sure.

    • Oui

      Al, even people who have been dating for years still have a year long engagement. Stop being so cynical.

      • Appearances are futile

        Except the success rate of couples on this show doesn’t pan out. It is called coming to a reasonable logical conclusion when presented with the facts not skepticism or cynics

    • Ally

      If it actually happens that sounds more than reasonable- esp if she moving to another state and finding a job and planning a wedding? That’s a lot- plus they have only been dating for what..2 months?

      • Samantha

        I agree. A little over a year from now is actually pretty soon! I’m sure they’ll have help booking things but if she’s finishing school and moving to another state that may take a while!

    • Bus Driver

      I dated my husband for 2 3/4 years before we got engaged. And then we had an 18-month engagement on top of that. Doesn’t sound like JP and Ashley are dragging anything on. Be skeptical if something “comes up” that prevents Ashley’s move to NYC.

  • tlb

    wishing them all the best! they are a cute couple! hoping they have a happy future!

    • Paula

      Me too! They look to be VERY much in love!

    • RaRa

      @tlb – Is that you, Chang?

  • Meg

    Implosion in

  • Paula

    Best wishes to Ashley & JP! May they have a long and happy life together!

  • Deanne

    I highly doubt they will make it longer than six months. I just didn’t get the feeling that Ashley is really in love with JP. I feel that it came down to the two of them and she basically picked the one she felt the safest with. It’s more like JP is her security blanket right now, after all the drama she went through on this show. As the months wear on, I don’t think she is going to want to marry him, just keep him as a good friend.

  • Mom of twins

    I think they will make it – I like the way he looks directly at her when she is talking, and she does to him. I also like the fact that they are looking at jobs and all that BEFORE getting married. I wish them well!

    • Caren

      I really think they have a chance, the way he looks at her, you can’t fake it or act it. They look very happy. I hope they are really as compatible in real life too!

    • Flowers By Caroline

      I think if they want to be together they have a great start!

  • Karen Linhart

    of course they will Make it – we are rooting for you ! they are perfect for each other – you can tell through out the entire show . . .

  • Me

    I hope for them that it does last, even though they aren’t my favorite couple from the show. But I don’t think it will.

  • steve

    JP is the stable one in this duo. She is the loose cannon!

    • Brenda

      I find JP totally unattractive. I hate seeing the veins on his scalp.I still think his main goal was just to win. There is something under the surface with him that no one has seen yet.

    • the world

      absolutely agree, ashley is the wild child who will likely cheat on him down the line.
