Peter Weber’s “After the Final Rose” acquired fairly heated, and for one cause specifically: his mother. Weber’s mom, Barbara (aka Barb) Weber, was not shy about sharing her true emotions regarding her son’s relationship with Madison Prewett. She was not a fan and he or she let everyone know.

Since the finale, Peter and Prewett have gone their separate methods (a lot to Barb’s delight, we’re certain). Peter’s made a degree to face up for each Prewett and his mother after the awkward finale. Prewett was criticized by some followers for being impolite to the Webers and for by no means apologizing and Barb was criticized by some followers for brutally taking down the lady her son liked on stay tv.

Peter Weber feels his mom’s feedback got here from ‘a place of just pure love’

Peter was not too long ago interviewed on The Viall Files, and he spoke about how proud he’s of his mother. He felt her conduct at “After the Final Rose” got here from a spot of affection.

“So AFR, that was tough. Listen, my mom, my family in general, they’re my rock. And, yeah, I’ll defend them until the day I die. And I love them more than anything. And they truly just want the best for me. In regards to what occurred, you know, out on stage there, what my mom said, yeah, could her delivery have been different? 100%. But where that was coming from was a place of just pure love, passion. That’s who my mom is,” he mentioned.

Peter continued: “And to be completely honest, just brutally honest, I respect the hell out of my mom for being able to do–granted, could the delivery have been different? I’ll say yes–but to be able to speak her mind and not feel the pressure to kind of cave in to a certain narrative on live television in front of millions of people when maybe that wasn’t the popular decision for my best interest, or what she thought was my best interest, that takes a strong person. And that’s the love of a mother. And that’s not easy to do.”

“Barb didn’t give a f*ck,” host Nick Viall agreed.

“She didn’t. And you gotta respect that,” Peter responded.

Peter Weber desires to be extra like Barb

If something, Peter says he desires to be extra like his mother sooner or later. After watching his season of The Bachelor, he feels he must get higher at placing his foot down–one thing he thinks Barb is admittedly good at.

“I need to have more of that in me,” mentioned Peter.

Later within the episode, when Viall requested the pilot what he’d wish to work on going ahead he mentioned: “Having a little more Barb in me. I’m being so real. Putting my foot down in situations. I’ve been the first to admit: Yeah, I’m a people-pleaser. It’s just who I am. It’s uncomfortable for me to get out of that and just kind of push back a little bit. And then just getting tough skin. All the hate that comes with this and all the opinions online and whatnot. It’s insane and it’s never-ending. So just getting that tough skin, I’m very, very thankful that I’ve started to get. And not let that get you down because that’s a dangerous dark hole.”
