Post No. 4: Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe and Nasty Comments

My guilty admission:  I sometimes get sucked into The Bachelor or Bachelorette.  I love a good romance, and I always hope these people will pick the right person and live their happily ever after.   I know that even though this is a “reality” show; in reality, lasting “love” rarely happens in 6-8 weeks.   And that whole “fantasy suite” deal bothers me for a few different reasons....more

Is there a plot twist this season?

I feel like my life is complete again.  This season is going to be a train wreck. With that being said....let's jump right in. The night began with Des driving up to her new house in her Honda Civic carrying one over night bag. ...more

The Bachelorette's Back! (And Brought to You By Cinderella)

Photo courtesy of ABCDesiree rolls up to her Malibu beach house and Chris Harrison is there to welcome her and gifts her with, not one, but TWO sketch pads.  (So, what, she’s an artist now?)  Cute baby pictures s...more

As In Life, More "Bachelorettes" Should Do the Choosing

I’ve grown cynical about “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette” franchise over the years, but watching the finale where Emily found “the one” last night with Jef Holm reinforces a theme I wrote about a couple of years ago…ABC should ditch “The Bachelor,” if they are to continue with the concept of this show at all, and should only show the female version “The Bachelorette.”  Here’s why….(I wrote this post during Brad Womack’s second season- when he chose Emily- this season’s “Bachelorette.”)———————...more

The Bachelorette: A Playhouse to Die For and the Return of the Bachelorette Drinking Game

It was a freakin’ love-fest on this week’s episode of “The Bachelorette.”  Emily loved all the families.  The families loved Emily.  Three of the four guys told Emily they loved her (Sean held out, but he sure does love kissing her!)  She loved Chicago.  She loved Jef’s ranch (yes, his family has a ranch).  And on.  And on.  And on.  For another two hours.  Oy....more

The Bachelorette: Emily Finally Drops the F-Bomb, Ricki is a Chloe Handbag and Shakespeare is Rolling Over in His Grave

It’s finally here!  ABC has teased the hell out of it, essentially showing the entire thing in promos, but it’s here!  We’ve arrived at the week when Bachelorette Emily finally drops the F-Bomb and kicks a guy off the show....more

The Bachelorette: The Guys Get Grilled, Alessandro the Delusional Gypsy King and a Farewell to "Shelly"

It’s week three of the Bachelorette, and I need to get a few things off my chest before we get started.  Did anyone else think Travis and Charlie were the same person?  Seriously, we know nothing about their personalities, and it’s week three.  Also, why does Emily keep Michael around?  Maybe they like to braid each other’s hair?  I don’t get it.  And what is a Luxury Brand Consultant?  Someone who likes nice things?  Me too.  Done...more

The Bachelorette: A Rainbow Connection

For last night’s episode of The Bachelorette (did I mention it’s the 8th freakin’ season?) Chris Harrison had to break it down for the guys so they’d know what they signed up for: (1) there are 2 one-on-one dates up for grabs, (2) if you get a one-on-one, you must pack your bags because you might not get a rose/return to the house, (3) not everyone will get a date, (4) yada, yada, yada…  As if people don’t know the rules by now....more

The Bachelorette: Emily Maynard is Back - Did You Watch?

Welcome to the all-new, “dramatically different” season of The Bachelorette!  Um, not really, but nice try, ABC. Sure, the show is filming in Emily’s hometown of Charlotte, North Carolina, but this isn’t the first time a single parent held the title role (Jason Mesnick, anyone?) This may be the first time that the child wasn’t shipped somewhere while mommy/daddy went lookin’ for love in a McMansion, but it’s not the first time ever....more
I had to do a double take on this--Emily Maynard is my birthdaughter's name!more
