Fans could absolutely tell that “Love Is Blind” star Deepti Vempati had gone through and learned countless lessons from simply watching her on screen in season two of the mega-successful Netflix reality show.
It seems as if Vempati, 31, has been taking the steps to eventually tell the complete story of how she fell in (and out of) love with Shake Chatterjee, and ultimately decided to choose herself since the second season of the unconventional dating series was released on the platform in the winter of 2022.
Viewers were enamored by Vempati and Chatterjee’s story,- including us here at The Blast- and now Vempati is ready to begin the next chapter of her story by putting pen to paper!
Earlier today Vempati announced on Instagram she was “Ready to tell her side of the story” in an upcoming book called “I Choose Myself,” which, according to her post, will be released on September 19th.
Read on for more details about Vempati’s next big (and extremely vulnerable) career move!
Looking Back On Vempati’s ‘Love Is Blind’ Journey
Vempati and Chatterjee memorably met and fell for one another ‘sight unseen’ in the series’ pods. The couple’s attraction to one another seemed evident, but as time went on, even after Vempati had accepted Chatterjee’s proposal, she found herself unable to overlook the many red flags Chatterjee continued to show.
A big chunk of Chatterjee’s screen time was soon devoted to his inability to move past the fact he hadn’t felt as physically attracted to Vempati as she had to him; he memorably discussed his inability to move past a major hang-up during the former couple’s intimate moments.
He routinely told cameras and his “Love Is Blind” co-stars how being intimate with his fiancée reminded him of his family members, and also continuously made comments about Vempati’s physical appearance.
Chatterjee’s antics had been enough for Vempati by the time the pair were set to walk down the aisle. Instead of saying “I do” to marrying him, she decided to embark on a new chapter devoted to strengthening her relationship with herself.
Vempati Decides To Mend Her Broken Heart And Move Forward!
Earlier this summer, we reported on Vempati’s new plan of action: moving on from her “Love Is Blind” days!
Vempati has been quite candid in sharing her feelings pertaining to her desire to move forward from her relationship with Chatterjee and the public’s ongoing preoccupation with the former couple.
“People would just randomly be tagging me in things,” she revealed in an interview with E! per one of our reports, “And I’m like, ‘that’s old energy that I don’t need to deal with. It’s time to move on and do fresh, new things.'”
One of those “new things” on Vempati’s radar? Beginning to tell the story of her former relationship and her time in the spotlight in a more in-depth fashion!
On September 10th, she participated in a Chicago-based TedxTalk event wherein she discussed coming to terms with “her bicultural identity as both a South African and Chicagoan woman.”
Vempati Continues To Embrace Vulnerability With A New Book
Vemapati’s recent TedxTalk event was far from the only time her fanbase will have a chance to know her on a more honest and intimate basis!
As we mentioned earlier our girl announced she is gearing up to tell her story in an upcoming book.
In Vampati’s Instagram announcement for her giant milestone, she also went a little deeper and shared her feelings behind the process of rising above the pain she had experienced in her break-up with Chatterjee and her choice to embrace her relationship with herself.
Vempati put her heart on the line as she discussed the importance of embracing vulnerability.
“Writing this book challenged me to understand myself,” her post began, “There were moments when specific experiences brought out emotions that I had suppressed for many years. I never thought I would resurface them with anyone, let alone in this way.”
“I see now that vulnerability is my superpower,” Vempati continued, “There’s so much strength in it that brings down walls and creates a domino effect into the lives of others. This is where authenticity meets inspiration-at its roots,” she candidly revealed, “Find me at my most vulnerable,” her announcement concludes with an invite to fans that is definitely true in its vulnerability!
“I Choose Myself” will be released on September 19th!
