Bachelor star Matt James is happy now he's back with girlfriend Racheal Kirkconnell -- who was outed for being a racist.

"One of the first conversations I had with Rachael's mom was when she told me that it was a choice that you had to make every single day and that is real. Not every day is going to be sunshine and rainbows, but you have to continue to make that decision to love that person every day, regardless of what is going on," he told HL.

Matt initially dumped her after the photos of her at an antebellum party surfaced but got back together with her.

"It was just a come to Jesus talk with Rachael where she was like, 'If you're going to make this work, let's do it. But if you're not going to make it work, then I'm going to let you do your own thing," he said months back. "It was an ultimatum and it was what I needed and it's been great."
