Bachelor Josh – Dead?

It’s been quite a year for Josh Seiter.  The former contender for the affections of a Bachelorette came out as bisexual, returned to stripping, and got a boyfriend.  He even announced plans to make adult films.  What would come next, you might ask?  Suicide – that’s what came next.  Last week, reports indicated that Seiter was dead at 36.  He had long expressed feelings of depression and other mental health issues.  So it wasn’t a complete surprise when his family went public with this post: “It is with an extremely heavy heart that we share the tragic news of Joshua’s unexpected passing.  As all who knew him can attest, Joshua was an incredibly bright light in an increasingly dim world.  His fearless voice and indomitable spirit helped thousands of people in their darkest moments feel just a little less alone.”  His family added information about 24/7 suicide prevention hotlines.

And three days later, like Jesus before him, he rose from the dead.  Turns out, his verified Instagram account had been hacked.  He posted a video – I suppose to really prove he was alive.  “Hey guys.  As you can see, I am alive and well.  My account was hacked.  For the last 24 hours, I’ve been trying desperately to get into it.   Somebody was playing a cruel joke and mocking my mental illness and the struggles I’ve gone through with depression and suicide attempts and I’m sorry for all the pain they caused when they made that post.”  But is that really the truth?  Josh’s ex, RuPaul’s Drag Race alum Monica Beverly Hillz, doesn’t believe any of it – and points to the gap of time between the death announcement and Josh’s rebuttal.  “He didn’t do shit, sat back, and got off on everybody freaking out.”  Of course, this doesn’t answer the question I’m sure most of you are asking: “Who?”
