If you, like myself, have been watching “Bachelor Pad” hoping that Holly Durst would see the light and take back sweet, sincere Michael Stagliano, give up now. It’s not going to happen. Word comes today that Holly is engaged to boring and slightly leery dentist Blake Julian, who she met on the show. Holly made the difficult choice to vote him off last week and sent him away with a note that read, “This isn’t the end for us.” Apparently she meant it.
Okay, maybe I am being a little cynical here. Keep reading »
One of my mother’s favorite pastimes, aside from texting me my daily horoscope, is playing Yenta for her 30-something single daughter. Only she doesn’t try to set me up with nice Jewish boys. No, she prefers to shop for my potential suitors on reality television.
It all started after the guy who I thought was my soulmate dumped me suddenly. I was devastated. Perhaps in an attempt to sooth my pain, my mother vowed to find me another guy, someone better.

Is no one on “Bachelor Pad” even the slightest bit authentic? I am feeling a bit naive at the moment for buying the sob story presented by Ella Nolan over the course of the show. Ever since the beginning of “Bachelor Pad,” we have been hearing her say why she ABSOLUTELY NEEDS to win the $250K grand prize so that she can give her 9-year-old son the best life possible. “I am a single mother … and I am struggling,” she said last episode, before bursting into tears because safety roses were given to Vienna and Kasey over her and Kirk. This, on top of her tragic childhood—her stepfather shot her mother on the street at point blank range in front of her—made her exceptionally sympathetic.
Which is why I was shocked to read this morning that Ella has pulled a half Heidi Montag. Yes, Ella has gone and gotten herself five plastic surgery procedures and has told the tale, and given photos, to Life & Style, as if this were something to be proud of. Keep reading »

Three day weekends are amazing. And also, a little disorienting. Last night, I went about my merry way thinking it was Sunday until about 11 p.m., when I remembered that it was actually Monday and “Bachelor Pad” was already in progress. I stayed up late to watch the whole thing and, boy, was I happy that I did. Finally, some movement on the Blake-Holly-Michael love triangle! And a little more action in the Michelle/Graham department!
After the jump, the good, bad, and WTF moments from last night’s episode. Of course, there is a lot more under “Bad” and “WTF” than “Good.” But that’s just how “Bachelor Pad” goes. Keep reading »
Last night’s episode of “Bachelor Pad” contained kissing, kissing, and some more kissing. So who locked lips because it was part of the game and who made out because their hormones were raging? Find out after the jump when I recount last night’s good, bad, and WTF moments. And of course, SPOILER ALERT. Keep reading »
On Monday’s episode of “Bachelor Pad,” Ames Brown melted our frozen hearts when, rather than continue in the quest for $250K without his new paramour Jackie Gordon, he waved goodbye to the cast and hopped in the limo to head home alongside her. “I think Jackie and I are falling in love,” he said in voiceovers as they cuddled in the limo. “This is the happiest limo ride in ‘Bachelor‘ history. We won ‘Bachelor Pad.’” I was hoping, hoping, hoping that the two were still together—and that we each have a fairy godmother and that there’s a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. But alas, it was not to be. Jackie and Ames have already broken up.
In fact, it sounds like Ames might have ghosted Jackie. Keep reading »

“Bachelor Pad” is quickly making Monday my favorite night of the week. With “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette,” I always end up asking myself, how does ABC drag this out to last two hours? But with “Bachelor Pad,” there is so much drama! All this is to say that last night’s episode was awesome. Parts had me crying with sympathy, others had me wanting to throw things at my TV, and the final moments were like a heating pad for my heart. After the jump, the good, the bad, and the WTF of episode two. And duh, if you haven’t watched yet—SPOILER ALERT. Keep reading »

It’s baaaaaack! Everyone’s favorite trashy Monday night TV show, “Bachelor Pad,” is back for its second season. In case you need a refresher, here’s the premise: 18 former contestants on ABC’s “Bachelor” and “Bachelorette” series, living in a house together, having their lives taped, to find out what happens when people stop trying to fall in love and instead focus on winning money. Greed! Hookups! Tears! The good, the bad, and the ugly of what happened in the first episode — which was a revoltingly jam-packed three hours — after the jump …

We watched as season five “Bachelorette” contestant, David Good, got a second chance at love on “Bachelor Pad.” After all the pie-eating, backstabbing, and unitard-wearing was said and done, David walked away the big winner with $125,000 in his pocket and Natalie Getz on his arm. Not too shabby! Since then, David has been busy penning a book, The Man Code: A Woman’s Guide To Cracking The Tough Guy. As unlikely a messenger as he may seem, his book gives women a look under the hood, helping them crack the code to understanding “men’s men.”
I had an email conversation with David to find out more about his thoughts on manhood, his love life, and who Brad Womack should choose. Check it out after the jump. Keep reading »
I know this question has been burning a hole in your hearts for the past few weeks: Whatever happened to Dave Good and Natalie Getz, the pair who won “Bachelor Pad“? Well, they are no longer together, which seemed pretty obvious to anyone who watched the final episode. They opted to share the $250K grand prize, so each walked away with $125K, which translates to $90K after taxes. Natalie, as she promised, is spending her loot paying off her student loans. She’s also using the cash to found a celebrity stylist firm, which is tragic considering that the girl’s favorite item of clothing is the tutu.
But Dave has far sillier plans for his money. Keep reading »
