During a recent interview, Too Hot To Handle season 2 star Carly Lawrence revealed that she feels “used” by Joey Joy, claiming that she happens to “pay for absolutely everything” for the couple. Despite only being 24 years of age, Carly was introduced as a pretty headstrong individual on Too Hot To Handle who knew what she wanted. Originally from Canada, Carly first found herself in a romantic entanglement with Chase de Moor on the show.
Alas, it didn’t take long for the couple to go their separate ways. Then, Carly met Joey on Too Hot To Handle and they stayed together until the show ended. It wasn’t clear at first if Carly and Joey’s relationship would survive out in the real world, but they did give it a real shot. Months after the Too Hot To Handle season 2, Carly and Joey were still reportedly together. With that said, it seems like there was a real shift in their relationship this week.
During a podcast interview with The Tea With Dr. V, Carly opened up about her experiences in past and present relationships. Throughout the interview, the Too Hot To Handle star talked about several issues she and Joey have, from not trusting each other on social media to having intimacy problems in bed. This comes after Carly revealed that Joey had cheated on her just a few days ago. “I feel used,” Carly said toward the end of the interview. “I feel like it’s in his favor, us dating is really good for him. He’s been getting followers from it. He’s been living rent-free. (…) I pay for absolutely everything. Why wouldn’t he date me? It’s easy to date me.”
During different parts of the interview, Carly explained that she and Joey have been living together throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. She made it seem like they fight on a regular basis, but she appears to think that all the fighting is normal. Carly mentioned that their last big fight was about social media. Specifically, the Too Hot To Handle runner-up admitted that she gets jealous of Joey interacting with other women on social media. “I feel like I give a lot in relationships, and sometimes I don’t expect that back, and I feel like I need to,” she explained.
Too Hot To Handle fans have been keeping up with Carly and Joey since their stint on reality TV came to an end. It is unclear if this interview was recorded before or after Carly’s latest social media revelation. If it was recorded after, it means that Carly backtracked from her claims that Joey had cheated on her. Otherwise, she could’ve also forgiven him.
