This past November, it was revealed that former Bachelorette lead Tayshia Adams and fiancé Zac Clark decided to go their separate ways after one year together. A month later, the reality star, 31, stated that she was "heartbroken" over the situation; so much so, that while cohosting The Bachelorette: The Men Tell All, she began tearing up and walked off stage.
These days, the phlebotomist is feeling better — but that doesn't mean she's interested in finding another man.
"I really have no desire [to date]," she admitted to Us Weekly, guessing that maybe she'll want to in about a year or so. "I feel like my main focus right now is myself, my career, my mental health, my happiness, my family, my friends and really just becoming my own [person], and I’m really happy with that."
Adams hasn't said much about the breakup, but she plans to give more insight into what went wrong when the time is right.
"I spoke my peace. And one day, when I feel like I have more to say, I’m sure we can talk about it all," said the Asics ambassador. "We tried really hard and I still love him very much and I’m not sure what the future holds. It’s really tough."
Audiences first met the California native when she competed on Colton Underwood's season of The Bachelor. She then went on Bachelor in Paradise and was chosen to be the lead of The Bachelorette in 2020 after Clare Crawley bowed out early.
Adams then acted as a cohost alongside Kaitlyn Bristowe for Katie Thurston and Michelle Young's respective Bachelorette seasons, as Chris Harrison stepped down amid controversy. However, the ladies were replaced by former Bachelor star Jesse Palmer, who hosted Clayton Echard's season and is also hosting Gabby Windey and Rachel Recchia's joint season.
The former podcaster isn't too upset about the switch-up, as it will allow her to take on new ventures and focus on herself more.
"I have to say, at least, that time really served me," she spilled. "It’s taken up a lot of 'me time' for the last four years. I’m ready to just do the next thing."
