Lawyer 'Bachelorette'

Boss Stunned She's Leaving for Dating Show

New "Bachelorette" Andi Dorfman has stunned her boss -- the D.A. of Fulton County -- by bailing in the middle of a murder trial to appear on a TV show ... but he's grudgingly giving her a shot at stardom.

TMZ obtained the letter written by Fulton County D.A. Paul Howard Jr., who calls her request "highly unusual." 

Truth be told ... most law firms and prosecutors' offices would give someone like Andi her walking papers, because they would normally view the request as flaky.  But Howard grudgingly agreed to take her back, calling her "a valued member of the DA's office."  She's also hot.

But two strings attached.  Her leave will be unpaid.  And, she has until May 31st to come back.  After that, she's just another professional reality star.

He ended his letter with, "Wish you best of luck."

Yeah, me too. And then there is this: What lawyer leaves in the middle of a murder trial? A really awful one, that's who. This woman is tacky and not too bright.

She's leaving because she wants the fame and money... Not because she's looking for love

Feels kinda sad. Spend all that time and money to get a law degree only to ruin the value of your reputation by doing this kind of "reality" show. I know law school is expensive, but this is only a short term way way to pay it back. Won't have any longevity in law if no one can even pretend to take you seriously. Now I'm certain that strange blow up with Juan Pablo was staged, setting the path to return as the Bachelorette.

I don't know if she's leaving for fame or to find a husband but walking out on a case wont look good later on in her career. Maybe she should find a rich guy.

The murderer is the real loser here. He's probably been dreaming of wrapping his hands around her neck since the trial started.

Thank God that this completely irresponsible pathetic whore is not anymore involved in justice or decisions about the life or death of people or fellow citizens!

But, i'm afraid that this bitch with that attitude is the blue print for a typical careerist in justice.

She's bailing on a murder trial to go on The Bachelorette? Her career should be done. Over. How embarrassing. Gee, methinks the defendant just found an appellate issue.

She needs to stay...my crystal ball tells me her 15 mins will be just that. Guess she never heard the expression." Don't quit your day job"

CAN NOT STAND HER!! If even one man shows up for this hag I will be shocked, especially if they watched her psycho skills with Pablo. Apparently she thought she was the only one Juan was messing around with...hahha!! She knew exactly what she was getting into when she went on this show, she is a lawyer and usually they do some research!!! This whiny idiot is nothing but a spoiled brat who makes fun of others as well as how they talk. Well,she needs to take a good look in the mirror because she isn't as perfect as she thinks she is.

"begrudgingly" is probably the word you were looking for. Spell-check won't help the dumb-ass.
