But Standifer's future husband isn't free of scandal.

Edwards came under fire when he bragged about "putting down" feral cats around his home.

"I'm not killing people pets," he exclusively defended to Radar. "Feral cats, and just like a raccoon or possum, I have to get them off my property. People act like I'm shooting them with a rifle. It's a damn BB gun that just scares them off. They're wild animals that destroy things. It's not against the law to manage your property."
