“Love Is Blind” reality star Deepti Vempati has some serious support in her corner.
Although she made it all the way to the altar with Abishek Chatterjee, known as Shake, Deepti revealed that she was “choosing myself” and said, “I don’t.” Many fans applauded her for deciding not to marry Shake, who had been secretly telling his male companions that he was not physically attracted to her behind her back. At one point, he said that spending time with her was like spending time with his aunt. Ouch!
Fortunately, Deepti has an extremely supportive family, and that includes her brother, Sunny Vampati, and his partner, Hina Merchant Vempati. Together, the two penned an open letter to describe their experience with the Netflix reality show.

“Now normally I don’t get involved in drama but I’mma defend my sister here: ‘Shake’, bruh, you’re a loser. You minimized by sister’s life by making some awful and cringeworthy comments about her,” they continued. “You made these statements knowing your own mom would one day watch it; my parents and my entire family had to sit through you talking behind my sister’s back and insecurities she fought her entire life. Despite your comments on and off camera about her body, she continued to only ever be supportive of you, despite our best efforts to convince her to see through your BS. THAT’S the person she is.”
“In spire of your best efforts to pretend this was all fictional and it was because of the ‘edit’, no one forced you to say those words,” they added. “We welcomed you into our home, and you saw it as an opportunity for clout; so forgive me if I’m not sympathetic towards you and the hate you’re receiving. Good luck with the rest of your life; and stay the f— away from my sister.”
“Fin,” they concluded. “Don’t @ me.”
