This week, we’ve been bringing you easy peasy costumes inspired by your fave reality TV shows. But enough with the ladies—it’s time for a dude. Why not be Jeff Medolla, aka The Mask from Ashley Hebert‘s season of “The Bachelorette?” His costume is easy—like, seriously easy. At a minimum, you need a rose and a mask, or you can go all out as highlighted after the jump. Really, the hardest part of this costume is admitting that you watch “The Bachelorette.” But then again, anyone who spots your costume will have just outed themselves as a “Bachelor” watcher, too, so it’s all good.

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.

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 »
It appears that Ben Flajnik, the floppy-haired wine maker who had his proposal turned down by Ashley Hebert on “The Bachelorette,” might have found love after all. And with another woman of note who has been notoriously unlucky in love—Jennifer Love Hewitt. According to Life & Style, Jennifer wrote to Ben via Twitter. “Omg! Ben f except [sic] my final rose !!! I love that ring. Neil lane u rock!! Happy for Ashley…. Gotta book a flight to Sonoma !!!:):)” she wrote. Later in the day, she typed, ““Aaaaaaahhhhhhh Ben f is following me!!!!!”
The point here isn’t even that Jennifer needs to learn the difference between the words ‘accept’ and ‘except’—it’s that it appears she may actually have made the trek to see Ben. Keep reading »
“We had a date set, and that date has now passed. The decision to postpone [the wedding] was very difficult. I definitely shed some tears. But I want to walk down the aisle—I don’t want to limp down the aisle. In my mind, Roberto is my husband. We live together; we do everything together; we plan for the future together; we fight just like a good old married couple. The only thing that’s not saying ‘I’m married’ is another ring on my finger and a piece of paper.”
—Ali Fedotowsky, the “Bachelorette” of yesteryear, explains to People that she and Roberto Martinez had set a wedding date, but decided to postpone it until after Ali recovers from the surgery she had on her femur on July. Glad to hear that this wedding postponement isn’t about needing more time to figure out their relationship because that is usually a prelude to a breakup. And I like these two crazy kids together.
