“I always had that thought in my head that maybe if he was working on himself and doing things that we would have a conversation [about] ending up back together,” Green, 27, exclusively told Us Weekly at BravoCon on Friday, October 14. “But that’s not the case, so we’re good. I wish him well.”
The Southern Charm newcomer noted that a past talk with Rose, 42, gave her brief hope for their relationship. “We had a conversation when we first separated where I was like, ‘Here’s some things I want you [to work on]. I’m gonna try to push you, drive you and challenge you to do these things.’ And I found out he was doing quite the opposite,” she shared. “So that in itself was just a turn off for me.”
Green and Rose originally sparked romance rumors in 2020 before taking their relationship public. During season 8 of Southern Charm, however, viewers saw the former couple’s connection take a turn. In July, Us confirmed that the reality TV stars had decided to part ways.
For Green, seeing her ex-boyfriend’s lack of effort made her reconsider a reconciliation in the future. “It just solidifies my decision. I know that I need to be moving in a different direction,” the clinical assistant detailed. “I’m hoping that he is doing well. I do wanna be somebody who is supporting him and pushing him to be the best version of himself always. But I myself need to heal and root and ground before I can give again.”
The North Carolina also hinted that she was not looking for a new relationship anytime soon, saying, “I am definitely dating myself. I know people say that, but I think I’m asexual at the moment.”
Green’s insight into her personal life comes after she called Rose out during the reunion earlier this month.
“You f—ked another woman in Texas. Multiple women,” she claimed on the second part of the special, which aired on Thursday, October 13. “Like goddamn it’s been two freaking months.”
At the time, Green slammed Rose for not caring about their relationship. “Why are you using women like that? Why did you use me like that?” she asked the South Carolina native, who replied that he doesn’t “keep score” and that he will “always love Taylor.”
According to Green, her only regret about the reunion is the way she got her point across. “I wish there were some choice words that I could take back,” she added on Friday. “All the yelling and the F words and the P word and the masturbate word. I wish I just kind of stayed grounded.”
