There has never been much doubt that Peter Weber’s mom Barbara doesn’t care much about Madison Prewett.
But, she doesn’t necessarily hate her.
“We just simply say that Madison’s values and Peter’s don’t align,” Barbara said in a new interview with Life & Style magazine about her feelings for the Bachelor suitor. “Her values don’t align with Peter’s, but no, we don’t hate her. They just don’t align and … you want to protect your kids no matter how old they are. The most important thing that we want for our children is their happiness. I just want his happiness.”
Indeed, things were very tense on the set of After the Final Rose on Tuesday (March 10) as Weber and Prewett appeared together, seemingly ready to reignite their romance after the Bachelor broke off his engagement to Hannah Ann Sluss.
And come to find out, this proposed reignited romance was a complete surprise to Barbara.
“I knew Madison was in the picture, but I didn’t know what was going to happen [on ATFR] until the last moment,” Barbara told the magazine. “We couldn’t have any contact with (Peter.) What everybody heard was the first time we heard it.”
Granted, both Peter and Madison have already headed to their respective Instagram accounts to let fans know that, just days after proclaiming their love, the two have decided to go their separate ways.
“Madi and I have mutually decided to not pursue our relationship any further,” Peter said, in part. “Believe me this was not easy for either of us to be ok with, but after a lot of honest conversations, we have agreed that this is what makes most sense for the two of us. The love and respect I have for Madi will continue to endure.”
What a train wreck.

I want to start by acknowledging the incredible group of women that I had the privilege of getting to know this season. Thank you for coming on this journey with me. I learned so many lessons from all of you that I will carry with me. Madi, thank you for your patience and unconditional love. You’re the epitome of a woman who carries herself with grace, stands by what she believes in, and loves whole heartedly. That love is something I feel so grateful to have felt and will take a piece of that with me always going forward. Madi and I have mutually decided to not pursue our relationship any further. Believe me this was not easy for either of us to be ok with, but after a lot of honest conversations, we have agreed that this is what makes most sense for the two of us. The love and respect I have for Madi will continue to endure. Hannah Ann, you set an example for women everywhere a couple nights ago. You are such a strong, confident woman and you deserve all the love in the world. I accept full responsibility for my mistakes in our relationship and wish you only the best. This has been an emotional experience and I am so grateful for the outreach of support that I have received from friends, family, and Bachelor Nation in the last few days. Thank you to all of you! This is just a another chapter in my story. One I will never forget and one I will always cherish ❤️
