“You know, I don’t think it was one specific thing,” Kelly shared on a recent episode of the “Talking It Out with Bachelor Nation” podcast co-hosted by Mike Johnson and Bryan Abasolo.

“I think it was just a lot of little things. You know what? Peter and I had a lot of fun, but I don’t know if, like, I looked up to him in a way that I wanted to look up to my spouse. Does that make sense?”

Kelley elaborated on how she has that type of admiration for her brothers and her father.

“If I’m in a moment where I need some sound advice and I’m like, ‘Okay, who can I go to advise me on this super important decision of my life?’ Peter was just, like, fun and games,” Kelley explained.

“I could go with him and have fun, but I just think I want more of a man that I look up to.”

Kelley suggested that when she attempted to confide in the airline pilot, he wouldn’t give her the type of advice that she had been looking for.

“I didn’t look up to Peter in the way that I have always hoped to look up to my husband,” Kelley reiterated.

When asked what qualities she’s looking for in her future spouse, Kelley shared, “Someone who is super intelligent that can teach me things, like something new every day.”

She clarified how Peter was “actually really smart when it came to aviation” and he “used to teach [her] a lot” when they’d go flying.

“Peter is smart, but I don’t know. I think I just need someone who is a little more serious-natured,” Kelley said.

Kelley revealed that when she was dating Peter, she actually had a “great” relationship with his mother Barbara and she “loved” her.

“And then towards the end, I think it was just getting a little uncomfortable,” Kelley admitted.

“But, you know, I have all the respect for her and I wish her well. We don’t really communicate, which is fine by me, but I hope the both of them are doing well… I don’t really know [how they’re doing].”

Kelley said she’s hasn’t “heard from” Peter or Barbara, nor has she “talked to them.”

Peter placed third on Hannah Brown’s The Bachelorette season before starring as the Bachelor in 2020.

Peter and Kelley briefly met at a wedding venue before The Bachelor’s 24th season began airing, so they wondered if their relationship was destined, but Kelley ended up placing fifth on Peter’s season because she had trouble opening up and being herself on-camera.

Peter proposed marriage to model Hannah Ann Sluss during his The Bachelor finale, but he broke up with her while his season was airing in January 2020.

Peter proceeded to have a one-night fling with Hannah and then attempt to reconcile with his The Bachelor runner-up, Madison Prewett.

However, Peter and Madison’s revived romance never really got off the ground when they talked about getting back together on his March 2020 After the Final Rose special.

Peter and Kelley then quarantined together at the start of the coronavirus pandemic and went Instagram official in May 2020.

After eight months of dating, Kelley and Peter announced their split on New Year’s Eve 2021.

However, the pair briefly reconciled and gave their relationship another shot, until Kelley and Peter’s romance ended for good in mid-February 2021.

The former couple’s relationship apparently ended “really badly,” according to Kelley, who said during a May 2021 appearance on the “Chicks in the Office” podcast that she had told Peter to “get out of my life and lose my number” when they split.

Kelley also insisted she’d “just run” from the children’s book author — whom she claimed has childlike-hobbies such as collecting Pokemon cards and playing video games — if she ever bumped into him in the streets of New York.

Things turned nasty when Peter addressed Kelley’s biting remarks during a May 2021 episode of his “Bachelors in the City” podcast, telling his listeners that Kelley seemed to be riding the fame wave and trying to push headlines with her “calculated and disingenuous” statements.

Kelley subsequently called Peter “extremely disrespectful” on social media, but she and Peter ultimately wished each other the best and moved on.
