Unless you’ve been offline all day, or, you know, have a life beyond the dramatic ups and down of reality television, you may have heard that Andi Dorfman, a.k.a. the Jewish Bachelorette, has made her decision.

The lucky man comes in the form of Josh Murray, a failed baseball player from Atlanta. So basically, Dorfman could have avoided all this hearttache by just trolling her hometown’s sports bars.

But as in every fairy tale ending, there’s a big loser sitting at home crying. And in Andi’s case, that person is Nick Viall, who, as Jezebel pointed out, was less than gracious about not being the chosen one.

Since the show’s main action actually took place weeks ago, despite airing Monday on ABC, our main characters (sorry — of course, they’re real people with un-staged emotions) have had time to move on with their lives. But apparently, some haven’t quite gotten around to that.

According to US Weekly, Andi is mad at Nick for a comment he made on the “After the Final Rose” special, which aired after the Monday finale.

“If you weren’t in love with me, I’m just not sure why, like, why you made love with me,” Nick said. Dorfman, visibly just wanting this interaction to be over and done with, responded with a cool double entendre: “That’s kinda below the belt.”

“I think everyone is probably in agreement that it probably wasn’t the most tasteful route that Nick chose to go “After the Final Rose,” Andi admitted afterwards.”But it doesn’t negate the relationship that I had with him.”

Fiance Josh also had something to say about it: Yeah, to be honest, it was very classless and disrespectful,” he told US. “It just shows the type of person that he really is. I don’t associate myself with those kind of people and neither does Andi. So it’s nice that that’s over with and no concern to us or our lives.”

On Tuesday, US Weekly released the full text of a letter Nick sent to Andi via “Bachelorette” host Chris Harrison.

Grab some tissues. It’s a tear-jerker:
