Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
Profile for Amelia McDonell-Parry
On last night’s season finale of “The Bachelorette,” as we’ve already told you, like, twice, Ali Fedotowsky gave Roberto Martinez her final rose. He then put aside his love for me and proposed to her, thus breaking my heart. Also left heartbroken: Chris Lampton, the sexy but sweet high school teacher from Cape Cod, who left his job in NYC in order to move home and care for his dying mother. Ali let him off easy, ending their relationship before the final rose ceremony, but no doubt many fans of the show think she made a mistake. We’ve got high hopes that Ali and Roberto are in it for the long haul, but honestly, we would have been saying the same thing if she had chosen Chris in the end. The girl just couldn’t go wrong. But considering that the vast majority of the relationships formed on “The Bachelor” and “Bachelorette” have not worked out — many of them ending after only a few months in “the real world” — there’s an argument to be made that sometimes the final rose is given to the wrong person. Here are five “Bachelor” and “Bachelorette” contestants we think had an error in judgment.
Just before heading to the clink to serve 13 days of a 90-day sentence, Lindsay Lohan sat down for an interview and cover shoot for Maxim‘s September issue. The actress shared her personal motto with the mag, saying “Stay true to yourself always. At the end of the day, you have to look at yourself in the mirror and be content with the choices you’ve made, and will make, in your life. Go with your gut!” I don’t know that I would go with Lindsay’s gut, but she does look lovely in her prison striped bikini. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
Yesterday, Charlie Sheen pleaded guilty to the misdemeanor assault charge in his domestic violence case after a fight broke out between he and his wife, Brooke Mueller, on Christmas Day; in exchange, the two other charges against Sheen were dropped and he avoided jail time. Instead, Sheen will spend 30 days in rehab, must complete 36 hours of domestic violence counseling, and is on probation for 90 days. So, let me get this straight … Sheen held a knife to Mueller’s throat and told her, “If you tell anyone, I’ll kill you,” and he doesn’t even have to spend a day in jail? It’s worth noting, of course, that though she reported the assault to police, Mueller has not been cooperating with authorities since. However, it is not unheard of for domestic violence victims to come to the defense of their abusers — it’s all part of the cycle of abuse. Keep reading »
“I think breastfeeding really helped me keep my figure. Some people here (in the US) think they don’t have to breastfeed, and I think ‘Are you going to give chemical food to your child when they are so little?’ I think there should be a worldwide law, in my opinion, that mothers should breastfeed their babies for six months.”
– Gisele Bundchen tells Harper’s Bazaar UK that she thinks the people in charge of passing “worldwide laws” — who dat? — should make breastfeeding mandatory. Look, I’m about as pro-breastfeeding as anyone and plan on whippin’ out my titty whenever my future babies demand it, but Gisele seems to forget that there are very good reasons why some women choose or are not able to breastfeed. Of course, in Gisele’s world, giving birth is a painless experience; no wonder she thinks breastfeeding should be a piece of cake. [Google News] Keep reading »
It’s super cute when famous people have long and happy relationships with people they met before they made it. That’s why we were kind of OK with T.I. marrying Tameka “Tiny” Cottle last Friday in Miami. They’ve dated off and on for eight years and already have two kids together, so it’s pretty obvious they aren’t jumping into things. [People]
In celebration of marrying a normal person you’ve known for a while, we rounded up a few other celebs who’ve taken this path.
Finally. Arguably one of the best seasons in the “Bachelor” franchise comes to a close tonight, with Ali picking between super sexy Roberto and sweet momma’s boy Chris. Or, you know, NOT. It’s kind of nice, for once, not knowing what’s going to happen, huh? Even better, on the “After the Final Rose” special, Frank comes back to talk to Ali face to face. I am verklempt. See ya at 8 p.m. EST! Keep reading »
