Joan Vassos had all the right reasons to exit The Golden Bachelor.
“A huge thank you to everyone expressing their concern for my family,” Joan wrote on her Instagram Stories Oct. 12 after the episode aired. “It’s a privilege to be a mom to four amazing kids and a grandmother (they call me Jojo) to two beautiful grandchildren. But once a mom, always a mom and sometimes the timing doesn’t work out with finding love.”
And she made it clear she isn’t giving up on her journey to find love.
“Everyone at home is doing great,” the private school administrator continued, “and I hope one day I will get the chance at love again.”
Now, she’ll be rooting on her fellow contestants from home.
“I’m so lucky to have been surrounded by such sweet and supportive women,” Joan added in another post. “Missing these women!”
