You can either chose to relive the pain every day from bitter experiences or learn a lesson from it and move on. And, we're glad Diamond Jack who rose to quick fame from Love Is Blind, a reality show chose the latter.
As the viewers of the whole ten episodes of Love Is Blind, a reality dating since it began airing in January 2020, Diamond Jack failed to endure a happy ending, compared to other contestants. If anything, Jack faced one of the most painful experiences and heartbreaks, to say the least. Long story short, love isn't blind for Jack.
Diamond Jack's Harsh Love Is Blind Journey
A couple of years back in 2018, a woman in her late-twenties is approached by Netflix's production team behind Love Is Blind to cast her as one of the contestants on the now-hit reality TV show. Diamond Jack is, of course, taken back by a full surprise. But, with a lot of brief concern, Jack agrees to do the show. If she can find her dream man through a reality dating show, then why not take the chance, Jack thought to herself.
Not to mention, the Chicago born rising TV personality even says on the show: "I want to be with someone who is really going to get to know me for who I am because honestly, my mom didn’t name me Diamond for nothing. She named me Diamond for a reason."
Jack who wanted to find her potent future husband who would make her laugh all the time, got along really well with the fellow contestant, Carlton Morton, that too after just a few blind dates. Diamond even got engaged to the former assistant of Cynthia Bailey from the Real Housewives of Atlanta without ever knowing what he looked like in person.
Needless to mention, Diamond fell in love with Carlton through the emotional connection they developed through communication they had over the pod's walls. But, if only she knew the shocking truth behind Carlton's reality he chose to hide until their Mexico honeymoon. You can pretty just say, things actually went downhill from there.
Carlton Morton Comes Out As A Bisexual Man Shocking Diamond Jack
Morton who serves as a social media manager is someone who has already been romantically linked with men before he met Diamond. But, his sexuality was something Morton was afraid to open up in worries that he might lose Diamond. But, like the sun can't be hidden, Carlton realized he needed to shed the truth of his identity sooner or later.
And, as they sat by the pool before one of their last meets, Morton finally gathers the gut to reveal his truth tearfully, which obviously shocks Jack. As surprised is Jack, she also becomes doubtful of their future. And, the next thing the fans know, Jack and Morton are involved in a huge argument the next day.
Annoyed and hurt with Carlton's behavior who uses humiliating slurs as the 'B' word, Diamond takes off her engagement ring from her finger and throws it on the pool. "Who the f*ck do you think you are" replies Jack to Morton who previously said hateful stuff like: "Watch your wigs cause it keeps sliding." Also, not to mention, Diamond even sang Sorry by Beyonce to cuss at Carlton.
The whole scenario and the discussion by the pool cause a controversial trending of misogyny and homophobia talk on social media. Not to mention, it was later revealed both Jack and Morton received death threats from the fans of Love Is Blind, taking a toll on Carlton's mental health.
Morton also shared on Twitter that he cried for help for days before a call to 911 was made from his home. Luckily, the cops arrived on time and handled the situation fairly. It's been known that Carlton was admitted for therapy.
Thankfully on the other side, things settled down between Morton and Jack too, as shown by the Love Is Blind Reunion episode.
