Focusing on herself! Juliette Porter has washed her hands clean from Alex Kompos following what she refers to as a “toxic” romance. During the Tuesday, February 26, episode of Siesta Key Opens a New Window. , the 21-year-old confronted her longtime boyfriend after finding two girls in his bed. While they got back together by the end of the show, things went a bit differently than shown on TV.

Juliette joined this week’s “Watch With Us” podcast Opens a New Window. to share all the details and give Us an update on their relationship today. Listen to the full episode Opens a New Window. above – plus, get some important tidbits below.

On what happened in Alex’s room:
“I showed up to his house early and all the doors were locked. I found one door that he actually uses as a window that has blinds in front of it. I think he forgot that it’s a door and that’s the only one that was open. I knew in the back of my mind, like, he knew I was there. He must have looked outside the window, saw my car and quickly locked the doors and forgot one. … I climbed over the couch and I saw him standing in front of his bedroom. I saw a girl sleeping.”

On the timeline – from finding the girls to breaking up with Alex to getting back together:
“I think that was maybe three weeks? It was really tough, everything was happening so fast. I didn’t even have time to think about what was going on, especially with everyone in my ear. I just wanted things to go back to normal, but in the back of my mind, I was thinking, ‘This is gonna change everything.’”

On off-camera conversations with Alex:
“Those are the ones that area kinda difficult for me; if it’s just him and I, he’s kind of saying, ‘It didn’t happen, I would never do that.’ I want to trust him, so those were almost worse for me. On camera, I try to use my head a little more. When there’s a camera watching me, I’m like, ‘Wait, what are other people going to think about this? What’s the best way to do this?’”

On taking Alex back:
“It’s hard because I trusted him at the time; he was my best friend. You never really know what other people are gonna pull. … I wanted to feel safe. In the long run that didn’t really end up working out.”

On Cara and Alex:
“As much as we want to pretend that the cameras aren’t around, I really assumed that Alex wouldn’t do something with her, even if he wanted to because there were cameras watching him all the time. I never thought they were actually going to hook up, I just thought it was rude that she was coming around and the things she said about me and my boyfriend at the time were terrible. I never thought he would do something like that, but I guess I was wrong.”

On the last breakup:
“We’ve been on and off for a long time. … We went back and forth a lot; I broke up with him in October for about a month; it was a toxic relationship. We tried again until about a month ago. After that, I was like, ‘We just have to rip the band-aid off.’”

On not watching anymore back:
“After this week, I can’t go back and watch that. In the moment, I understood how I was feeling, how heartbroken I was and this was a really big deal. I don’t want to act the way I was acting, but I would have handled things a lot better if I were able to just leave, and I wasn’t able to leave. … I begged the producers to let me, like, have a week off. They were, like, ‘We can’t, we have a deadline.’ And I understand that but I think in the situation I was in, I was just so emotional. I don’t want to watch it anymore, I don’t want to see myself in that state.”
