“You can’t be my best friend, expect me not to date anyone, and then, like, what is it?” he told her. “You just want to have the best of both worlds here? You want to be the best friend, the occasional lover, without the responsibilities of being in a relationship?”
When Vanessa reiterated that she didn’t trust him because of his past, he said that all he wanted was a fair chance.
“I know you’re like my best friend, I hope we’re best friends, but, I’m in love with my best friend,” he told her as she continued to awkwardly sip her drink.
During the tell-all in September, Larissa accused Colt of already having something going on with Vanessa when he was still married to her. Colt denied the accusation, although he acknowledged that he had an “emotional affair” with her.
“I never cheated on Larissa,” he said. “At worst, I had an emotional affair with Vanessa, and I’m sorry I did that. But unfortunately, while I was married to Larissa, near the end of it, it was terrible. It was literally the worst time of my entire life. And Vanessa was the only person there who would even talk to me and just be there as a friend. And I took that, and I think I was developing feelings for her.”
