Reality TV

Greg Grippo is begging fans to stop sending his family hate in the wake of his appearance on the “Bachelor in Paradise” reunion.

The “Bachelorette” alum joined his new girlfriend, Victoria Fuller, for the special as she confirmed her split from fiancé Johnny DePhillipo – and debuted matching tattoos.

“Send all the hate that you desire my way but please leave my mother and fam out of this,” Grippo wrote via Instagram Thursday morning.

“enjoy your thanksgiving.”

The post was shared just one day after Fuller spoke out about her failed relationship with her “BiP” co-star.

“When you get called a ‘f–king c–t’ in your relationship, it’s time to move on,” the reality star, who appeared on Peter Weber’s season of “The Bachelor,” wrote on Instagram.

The reunion episode featured footage of Fuller’s romantic engagement to DePhillipo on the beach, before producers brought Grippo out on stage.

Katie Thurston’s former suitor explained that he and Fuller had been “friends for a while,” reconnected “weeks after ‘Paradise’” and then went out “for a drink” in Rome, Italy.

When Fuller rolled up her sleeve to reveal their matching ink, Grippo chimed in, “Well that’s — I guess we’re gonna do that.”

Fuller chimed in, “Everyone can hate us if they f—king want.”

Fuller, for her part, claimed she and DePhillipo called off their engagement less than one month after “Bachelor In Paradise” filming wrapped.

However, her ex claimed they hadn’t “officially” broken up until mid-September and were “in couples counseling before she went to Italy” with Grippo the following month.

Fans were quick to take to social media to weigh in on the drama following the reunion.

“Victoria F and Greg Grippo acting like they’re gonna last forever cuz they got tattoos? Did we just choose to forget about Pete Davidson?!” one member of Bachelor Nation tweeted, referencing the “Saturday Night Live” alum’s former relationship with Kim Kardashian.

Another person joked, “Without the episode tonight we would have never known ciao is Italian for hi, thank you Greg.”
