Vanessa Lachey recently sent “Love Is Blind” star Paul Peden a bouquet of red roses after he accused her of having a “personal bias” during the reunion. Earlier this month, Peden shocked “Love Is Blind” fans after he broke up with his ex-fiancé Micah Lussier at the altar, claiming he couldn’t see her as a mother. During the Season 4 reunion of the Netflix show, Lachey was accused of taking sides when Peden explained his decision.
Peden took to Instagram Stories to thank Lachey for “acknowledging the accidental misleading” while sharing a snap of the bouquet she sent him. Reps for the actress did not immediately respond to Page Six’s request for comment.
Despite many agreeing that Peder shouldn’t have married Lussier, fans called out Lachey’s grilling tactics, as well as her apparent bias against the former and softness towards the latter. Peden claimed that Lachey showed “personal bias” while questioning him and felt that her hosting methods came off as an “interrogation on issues” — specifically “very key inflammatory points” — rather than open dialogue.
Fans responded to Lachey’s line of questioning for Peden as well, pointing out her apparent sympathy for Lussier. They have since demanded that Nick and Vanessa Lachey be replaced as hosts of “Love Is Blind.” One viewer chimed in on the hosts, tweeting, “Unpopular opinion but Nick and Vanessa are bad hosts who are clearly biased.” Nick and Vanessa have remained quiet about the backlash, but notably turned off the comments on their social media pages.
