Don’t know if you’ve heard, but former “Bachelor” Brad Womack, who proposed to Emily Maynard, then declared he’d “dodged a bullet” after they broke up, and former “Bachelor” contestant AshLee Frazier, who scared the living shit out of everyone on Sean Lowe’s season, are now an item. Yup! Brad and AshLee are dating.The ”Bachelor” alums have been hanging out for a while now, and AshLee posted a photo of them sucking in their stomachs and embracing at a baseball game.
Does anyone else think this is a match made in Chris Harrison heaven? Just think of the hair highlighting tips BrashLee would be able to share! Read more at The Stir…
“The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette” have long been known for casting types—the workaholic, the basketcase, the party heartier. But it looks like after last season, when Emily Maynard became a fan favorite because of the resilience she showed in talking about her fiance who died in a plane crash years before the show, it appears the franchise has a new type—the tragedian. For the second season in a row, the producers have cast a contestant with something deeper than a traumatizing breakup in their past—they’ve lost spouses in tragic accidents.
This season, that contestant is West Lee, who is currently vying for the love of Ashley Hebert. Keep reading »
We were just waiting for Emily Maynard to jump from “Bachelor” Brad Womack’s loveboat. His “I’m a perfect guy now” facade was crumbling by the second during the finale. What was her first hint? When he got angry at her for questioning that his desire to be a father to her daughter was enough? How dare she! Or was it when Brad’s brother warned her “not to poke the bear”? If there’s a bear within capable of being provoked, you best believe we’re not sticking around to make its acquaintance. We’re glad Emily decided very wisely not to walk down the aisle — at least for now. After the jump, some things a guy could say that would make us hightail it in the opposite direction. Add yours in the comments. Keep reading »
Last night, after the disappointing revelation that Brad and Emily are probably not going to live happily ever after, speculation instantly began on who would be the next “Bachelorette.” Would ABC go with the obvious choice, Chantal O’Brien, the gorgeous brunette who was Brad’s runner-up? That theory were quickly shot down during “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” On the show, it was announced that Ashley Hebert, the sweet dental student Brad sent home from Cape Town, would be the new “Bachelorette.” [CNN] Keep reading »
Last night’s season finale of “The Bachelor” was an incredible letdown. I felt pretty sure a few weeks back, when Brad Womack and Emily Maynard landed on their own private island and he broke into hives while trying to tell her how much he cared about her, that Emily would be his choice in the end. As expected, Brad let Chantal go in a burst of tears and then got down on one knee and slipped a big, glittering diamond on Emily’s finger. “I’ve wanted to tell you I’ve loved you for so long,” he said, before telling her she’s “the one.” Big duh.
But then came the “After the Final Rose” ceremony. Keep reading »
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 »
“Chantal was hard to get to know. She keeps her distance from women. But I left feeling that if I ever saw her again, I’d give her the biggest hug. I still don’t think she’s right for Brad. He needs someone soft-spoken and feminine. [Emily is] just a Southern belle, ladylike and sweet. Emily will be the one who ends up with him, if that’s what she wants. It’ll be more about her choosing him.”
— Eliminated bachelorette, Michelle Money, on how”The Bachelor” will end. Well, you heard it straight from the Bunny Boiler’s mouth. As crazy as she is, I agree with her assessment. But I have a hunch that Emily will jump ship before Brad can get a ring on her finger. [People] Keep reading »
Nothing says “Be My Valentine” like forcing three ladies to strip down, put on red bikinis, and shoot photos for Sports Illustrated
‘s annual swimsuit issue. That is exactly what “The Bachelor
” Brad Womack
will be doing on next week’s conveniently timed episode. Ashley Herbert, Chantal O’Brien, and Michelle Money are the lucky ladies who do the shoot, as you can see in this preview clip. Ashley covers her boobs with conch shells, Chantal dribbles sand in her belly button and takes off her top, and bats**t insane Michelle rolls around with Brad “From Here To Eternity”-style. Says Ashley, “Watch out, Gisele!” [People

I’m just not sure what to make of this clip from next week’s episode of “The Bachelor.” In it, Brad Womack takes the woman on a group date to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway for a NASCAR date. Midway through, he looks at Emily Maynard, the Southern blonde who has quickly become a fan favorite, and notes, “I’m realizing something’s really wrong with Emily.” Ya think, smart guy? Remember when she told you that she had been engaged to a NASCAR driver (Ricky Hendrick) who was killed in a plane crash in 2004, a week before she found out she was pregnant with his baby? Did it really not occur to you that going to a NASCAR track on a date might bring up some emotions? Keep reading »
“It was definitely the Emily thing that set it off. When she came clean, it pulled on my heartstrings. I felt like I was competing for something I wasn’t necessarily sure I needed. You feel less deserving. They all have these stories and heartache and they need this love … Fighting other girls for a guy has never been my style. But had I stepped out of the limo and knew he was going to be my husband, I would have been in a stronger fight for him. But at the end of the day, did I see myself being his Texas housewife? Not sure. Could we have worked? Maybe. Probably not. He said he’d have a hard time bringing me home to his grandmother … I have always been into the darker side of things and love the mystery and sexiness of vampires. I became friends with the leader of the underground vampire world. He had a fangsmith so I had a pair made. I wore them for Halloween once and had such a blast that I brought them out on numerous occasions afterwards. It has become kind of my signature thing.”
– Madison Garton (aka Fang Girl) talking about her sudden and unexpected departure from “The Bachelor” last week. I was personally sad to see Fang Girl go. She was one of my favorite contestants ever. You can’t blame her for leaving. She is way too edgy for boring Brad Womack. But the interesting part of this is that she runs with the leader of the underground vampire world and visits a fangsmith. Tell me more about that, Fang Girl. [People] Keep reading »
