Andi Dorfman, “The Bachelorette” from Season 10 and former Fulton County assistant district attorney, will spill the beans on her “Bachelor” and “Bachelorette” experiences in her new book “It’s Not Okay: Turning Heartbreak Into Happily Never After.”
The 28-year-old Dorfman first gained notoriety in 2014 as one of the final contestants on Season 18 of “The Bachelor” when she famously walked out on bachelor Juan Pablo Galavis.
The Atlanta native made it to episode 8 of that season before leaving the show and calling out Juan Pablo for bad behavior. Later that year, she was selected as the bachelorette for Season 10 of the show, choosing Josh Murray as her beau.
Murray and Dorfman were engaged for less than a year before splitting in January of 2015.
Dorfman will be making an appearance at Big Sky Buckhead on June 2 to discuss her time with Murray and her experiences on the two shows as part of the JCC’s Page from the Book Festival of the MJCCA series. The free program will include a Q&A session and book signing.
In her book, which is set for a May 10 release, Dorfman talks candidly about what it’s like to be courted by 25 handsome, single men and breaking up on national TV. She also comes clean about calling out Bachelor Juan Pablo for bad behavior, and reflects on her personal challenges and uplifting experiences in love that she hopes will help readers get through their own break-ups.
Andi Dorfman was born in Atlanta to Patti Smith Dorfman and Hy Lewis Dorfman. Both of her parents are Jewish, making Dorfman the first bachelorette of Jewish ancestry in the show’s history to date.
