Being A ‘Bachelor’ Hard For Bob Guiney But Great For His Songwriting

DETROIT (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Former Bachelor Bob Guiney has been married to All My Children star Rebecca Budig for 14 months but his appearance on the ABC reality show still haunts him on a regular basis.

Luckily, the effect is more musical than romantic.

Guiney is working on his fourth musical CD and at least two of the songs are based on his trials and tribulations as The Bachelor and how he felt more compelled to avoid hurting feelings than searching for a wife.

As he puts it, “All these women felt like they knew me from the first show. It was flattering – at first.”

Guiney took some heat from the show’s fans for not settling down with Estella Gardinier, the woman he chose on the show, but says that has dissipated ever since he married Budig last year.

He figures his female followers realize he was sincerely looking for love and just didn’t find it on the show, but adds that “many of The Bachelor fans are also fans of my wife.”

Guiney will do a mini-tour in October with his group, The Bob Guiney Band, and plans to do a U.S.-wide tour when the album is released in January.
