Cristy Caserta, Former Bachelor Suitor, Dead at 38

Cristy Caserta, a woman who vied for the heart of Brad Womack on The Bachelor Season 15, passed away unexpectedly on Thursday after suffering an apparent seizure.

She was 38 years old.

According to law enforcement officials, per TMZ, Caserta was attending a class at a school in Sunrise, Florida when she suddenly fell forward at the desk where she was sitting.

Her alarmed classmates quickly dialed 911.

Tragically, however, Caserta went into cardiac arrest as the paramedics arrived and administered CPR.

She was transported to nearby Westside Regional Medical Center … where they continued efforts to save her, but it was too late. She was pronounced dead not long after her arrival.

The police have said they don’t suspect foul play and that no drugs were found in Caserta’s system.

An autopsy will be performed Friday to determine the official cause of death.

This is what the Sunrise Police Department in Florida said about Caserta, who worked as an attorney:

“The students around her noticed her coffee fell to the ground and thought maybe she fell asleep, but she was unresponsive when they approached her.

“They called 911, and Fire Rescue showed up and started CPR and she was still unresponsive.”

As mentioned above, Caserta was featured on Womack’s second season as The Bachelor.

She was sent home during the first week.

Stephen Carbone, the blogger behind the Bachelor fan/spoiler site Reality Steve, paid tribute to Caserta on Thursday night, writing:

“Sick to my stomach to see that Cristy Caserta from Brad Womack’s 2nd season has suddenly passed away.

“Cristy was always there to give me legal advice in the past. I’m at a loss after seeing people post on her FB. Just spoke a couple weeks ago. RIP my friend.”

In January, Caserta started a job working as a corporate lawyer for a healthcare staffing agency in Sunrise.

She had worked as a lawyer at a different company during her time on The Bachelor and was granted leave to appear on the series.

Womack, who previously anchored The Bachelor Season 11 in 2007, is pictured above.

He ended up proposing to Emily Maynard, but they broke up a few months after the finale.

Neither Brad nor anyone associated with the show has commented yet on Caserta’s death.

May she rest in peace.


How to Get Away with Murder Recap: Who’s Dead Now?!

Does How to Get Away with Murder know what viewers want? 

It certainly seemed that way on How to Get Away with Murder Season 5 Episode 1 which gave birth to a whole new mystery that is poised to find another key player getting, well, murdered. 

The murder in question takes place at Connor and Oliver’s wedding, and based on the slap Annalise hurls at Frank upon hearing about the unlucky player bleeding out on the snow, she’s pissed about it. 

Before we got much in the way of answers, this series went back to the beginning of the school year. 

A brand new year at Middleton University got underway, but there was a striking difference from the previous year:

Annalise Keating was back, and in good graces with the faculty. 

Did you really think her Class Action lawsuit against the justice system was going to result in her retiring? 

Um, no. Annalise returned… with new wigs, and the same old attitude. 

Celebrating her return to the school, she admitted off the bat that there would be a brand new clinic and that the surviving original members were not guaranteed a spot. 

That meant, Asher, Connor, Michaela, and Laurel aka the core four who have been associated a little too heavily with all the previous murders would have to impress her if they wanted to remain part of her team. 

Frank wanted to be part of the class, but he was relegated to the waitlist. Is he really wanting to be part of this class to find out more about the elusive Gabriel Maddox?

It sure seemed that way, but anything is possible with this show. Speaking of Frank, he was getting a little too comfortable with Laurel staying at his. 

It led to them having lots of sex. Frank was all too happy to throw his clothes off at any given moment, but there was heartbreak in store for him. 

Laurel decided it was best to move out before things got too serious. That’s when Frank got down on one knee and actually proposed to her. 

Did Laurel accept this offer to be with a man who murders when the going gets tough? 

Nope. She dumped him and moved in with Connor, Michaela and Oliver, so there’s that. 

The only silver lining in all of this was that he got to be Cristopher’s godfather. It seems Laurel is not quite ready for a relationship, you guys. 

In the meantime, Frank wanted to know what Gabriel Maddox was up to and whether he was this kid who was supposed to be dead. 

Thankfully, Frank was on hand to pull some strings. Even when this dude is away from Annalise, he still manages to find himself in crazy situations. 

He learned that Gabriel was the kid, but we never learned whether he was the child of Annalise or the child of Bonnie. 

This show certainly knows how to keep viewers wanting more. 

Annalise made her decision about the clinic and left Asher out in the cold. 

The reason?

She’s tired of hearing about him pining after Michaela. In her eyes, he needs to grow up and stop acting so god damn childish. 

Simply put, Annalise had a lot on her mind. She needed to find the right law firm to support her clinic. 

That meant fielding a lot of offers that would rake in a lot of $ . Just when it seemed like she was ready to get what she wanted, she was dropped like a hot potato from every firm. 

Taking on the justice system came back to bite her in a huge way. 

That’s when she returned to Caplan & Gold with a brand new offer. When they declined, she stormed out of the building. 

But she later got a call saying she should return to sign on the dotted line. Annalise has still got it, it seems.

The final scene featured the biggest bombshell of the night:

The person bleeding out on the snow was right next to baby Christopher.

Could it be Laurel?!

Would the show really kill off Laurel?

We’ll need to tune in this fall to find out!

What did you think of the premiere?
