‘The Bachelorette’ Spoilers: Zac Clark Opens Up On Past Substance Abuse
This came to light after Zac revealed his history of drinking and drugs. When speaking to the Whine Down podcast, he said: “Usually you tell someone you’re an alcoholic or you’re a drug addict, whatever it is, and it goes one of two ways. She was kind of in the middle.
“She didn’t have any direct, I think, experience with it but she definitely had an open mind, and she asked all the right questions. Like, early on, she said, ‘Can I drink and then kiss you?’ She’s a sweetheart.” But rather than take it as a negative, Zac stated how it brought him much closer to Tayshia.
He added: “It was one of the things that I was most attracted to in her is that — not only with me but with all the guys there — she was able to take on a lot of s–t and hold space for us.”And continuing in the same fashion, Zac spoke of how his interactions with Tayshia on The Bachelorette made him question his substance problems.
He said: “My attitude around that was just like any other date I’d been on. If she’s not going to love me for who I am, then it’s better that we end this thing now than get into it and come to find out there’s going to be an issue there. For me, I’m really proud of who I am, and it’s a huge part of me.
“[Recovery] allows me to live the badass, next-level life that I get to live.” Then by staying true to his words, he denied any rumours that he had been drinking on the set of the show: “The guy came out with the tray of champagne, and there was four champagnes and one apple cider, and she looks at him, and she goes, ‘No, I’m drinking apple cider with him tonight.
“And I said, ‘What?!’ She made the guy go back, get an apple cider while all these people are waiting. So, she was on team Clarky that day, and that’s when I knew.” It is good to see Zac doing well.
