Malvern native Julia Rae became a national celebrity after her short-lived but tumultuous appearance on the first season of The Bachelor Presents: Listen To Your Heart, writes Caroline O’Halloran for SAVVY Main Line.
During her four episodes on the show, a music-focused spinoff of the popular dating program, Rae drew the ire of viewers for spurning nice guy Sheridan by going on a date with bad boy Brandon. After a so-so song the pair performed, they were both sent home.
Her decision to choose Brandon resulted in a slew of horrible messages on Instagram, including some death threats.
Now that the singer is back home, she said she had felt like she has been riding “an emotional roller coaster” ever since she left Los Angeles, where the show was filmed.
“I have trouble watching myself and realizing the mistake I’ve made,” said Rae, who skipped her senior year at the Academy of Notre Dame to pursue a music career in Los Angeles.
Since returning from her bumpy ride on television, Rae is once again doing what she loves the most – making music.
