The Fulton County District Attorney’s office is NOT getting a rose from "Bachelorette" Andi Dorfman ... because TMZ has learned she has decided not to go back to the job.
As TMZ first reported, Fulton County D.A. Paul Howard Jr. allowed Dorfman to take an unpaid leave to do the show ... as long as she was back by May 31.
The Fulton County D.A.'s office tells TMZ ... Andi did not want to ask for an extension on her leave, so she decided to resign instead. The D.A.'s office had nothing but good things to say about her ... even going as far as saying they would be open to re-hiring her if the opportunity arises.
Perhaps there is true love there after all.
Andi Dorfman, star of the current season of "The Bachelorette," will not return to her job as an attorney with the Fulton County [Georgia] district attorney's office, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported Monday.
Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard had granted her an unpaid leave of absence from February through May 31, but Dorfman has chosen to leave the office instead, Howard's chief of staff, Marla Robinson, told the paper.
The 2012 Wake Forest Law School graduate became an assistant district attorney there in November of that year, according to her LinkedIn profile.
[No Wonder They Fired Her. It's rather unprofessional to seek reality stardom when you are a lawyer. This is from when she asked her boss to leave for filming:
"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."
I hope she doesn't have Law School loan debt. I would much rather be respected as a DA, than the Bachelorette. What an embarrassing world. I bet her parents are disappointed.
