Source: Clare Crawley Wasn’t Picked To Be “The Bachelorette” Because She Had Sex With Juan Pablo

  • Fucking Juan Pablo in the ocean really screwed Clare: a source tells the blog Hollywood Life that she was in consideration to be “The Bachelorette,” but they were afraid they would lose viewers over her sexual behavior. As you certainly remember, Clare snuck over to Juan Pablo’s cabana one night and they had sex in the waves. (He later told Clare, “I loved fucking you.”) In the end, the source said, the producers decided Andi Dorfman was a “safer choice.” Amelia calls bullshit on this story because A) Clare is boring and no one really wants to watch her, period, and B) they rarely pick the runner-up because filming for the new season happens too soon after the other ends.

Gaga Gagging

As someone who has been traumatically barfed on in public, I cannot stop shaking my head and thinking, I am too old for this shit. [Just Jared]
