An Infographic Guide To “The Bachelor” (Week 3! By The Numbers!)

Reminder: Every Monday, I livetweet a new, exhaustingly long episode of “The Bachelor” on my personal Twitter (@xoamelia), giving a detailed, hilarious, wine-and-weed-influenced critique of “Prince Farming” (oh go fuck yourself with that nickname, Chris Harrison) and his search for a woman willing to move to a post-apocalyptic hell tundra Iowa. And then every Tuesday, I recap the episode with some form of an infographic, because three hours actually forming sentences to describe my feelings about this shitshow is enough for all of us.

On last night’s episode of “The Bachelor” — which was crashed by Jimmy Kimmel — so much happened (read: nothing really happened), I decided to break things down by the numbers. Speaking of numbers, show of hands for everyone who heard Amber say, “I don’t want  something warm and salty in my mouth” and immediately thought, Is she talking about goat milk or semen?” <RAISES HAND> Also, this episode needed way more Ashley S. Thank god she got a rose!

On last night’s episode, the crazies came out to play, but no one brought it harder than Brooklyn (represent!) hairstylist Ashley S. Best of all, despite — or because of — her television worthy antics, she scored a rose!

Every Monday, I’ll be livetweeting a new, exhaustingly long episode of “The Bachelor” on both my personal (@xoamelia) and The Frisky’s Twitter accounts, giving a detailed, hilarious, wine-and-weed-influenced critique of “Prince Farming” (oh go fuck yourself with that nickname, Chris Harrison) and his search for a woman willing to move to a post-apocalyptic hell tundra Iowa. Every Tuesday, I will be recapping the show with some form of an infographic, because three hours actually forming sentences to describe my feelings about this shitshow is enough for all of us.  Above, my first impressions of “the girls.”

Head Shrinking: On The Couch With 8 Reality TV Therapists

I am therapy’s biggest champion. I’ve been seeing my therapist for … oh, nine years now? Dr. A is my longest term relationship, outside of my family. I credit her for helping me overcome so many of my issues, learning to forgive, and getting me through some truly heartbreaking times. And therapy isn’t just for when life feels really, really hard — when I’m feeling good, I still get just as much out of my weekly therapy sessions, as self-awareness is a never-ending journey.

Therapy, though, is still something many people raise an eyebrow at. They think it means you’re crazy, or fucked up, or suicidal. I would love to see therapy become even more normalized, rather than an extreme measure for the deeply wounded. One thing that is maybe helping (and also maybe hurting) that cause is the rise of televised therapy sessions on reality TV shows. I’m not talking about Dr. Phil — fuck him. I’m talking about both reality TV stars allowing the cameras in on their existing therapy sessions, or signing up for therapy-themed TV shows like “Celeb Rehab.” Just how legit are these therapists? What’s their approach to therapy? Would I ever hire them to shrink my head? Let’s review…

Reality star Diem Brown, 32, has died after her decade-long battle with cancer. Famous for appearing on MTV’s “Real World/Road Rules Challenge,” Diem was first diagnosed with ovarian cancer ten years ago, and became very vocal about her fight to live. In 2012, Diem was diagnosed again, this time the cancer was found in her stomach and colon and had spread to her lymph nodes and liver.

“I know I will be fine,” she tweeted at the time. “I beat Cancer once & I’m gonna do it again! I know God has a reason for every speed bump in life & I’m ready.” Keep reading »
