Colleen talks Love is Blind reunion
Colleen has addressed comments made by Love is Blind fans on whether she is okay. She told Cosmopolitan that she was “dealing with a lot of anxiety due to the negative commentary,” revealing:
Going into the reunion, I was not in good headspace as I was dealing with a lot of anxiety due to the negative commentary I had endured during the first few episodes. While I knew what I had signed up for, at that point I was not prepared for the gravity of strangers critiquing my profession that I am incredibly proud of, my character, and tearing down my body/physical traits.
She added that she felt “embarrassed” at having to rewatch the pool scene in which herself and Cole said they found each other attractive, and didn’t want rewatching the scene to change things between them or her female co-stars.
Not only was I was dealing with this stress, but I was embarrassed of having to watch the pool scene in front of everyone and having to discuss it. I cherish my friendships with these girls so much. I didn’t want my actions to change anything with them or with Matt. I was anticipating more harmful comments as well.
The reality TV personality also revealed that Matt was incredibly supportive during filming of the reunion, which aired on November 9, and provided constant reassurance that she was okay.
GRV Media and Reality Titbit has reached out to Colleen and Love is Blind representatives for comment.

Matt and Colleen have lived happily ever after first meeting in the Love is Blind pods. They both got married and continue to be loved-up today, with her writing that she now “can’t imagine a life without you.”
It wasn’t all plain-sailing though. The two got engaged but had a rocky patch during their honeymoon. However, they decided that tying the knot was totally worth it, and decided to say “I do” at their wedding ceremony.
Although they are “doing really good,” Colleen and Matt said they are living apart due to rent prices. Speaking on the reunion couch, the pair both said they take their relationship “incredibly serious.”
