Tonight, it’s “The Men Tell All”! I’m pretty psyched for this one, as I’m hopeful that Krazy Kasey, Rated-Gimp, and Frank will all show to face Ali and the rest of the dudes. If they don’t, well, I’ll be disappointed, but at least I think we can count on a confrontation between the Weatherman and Angry Craig. That should provide some entertainment for two goddamn hours. Sigh. See ya at 8 p.m. EST! Keep reading »

Okay, seriously, tonight is the night when Frank drops a stink bomb on Ali’s wedding dreams. Guess we know there won’t be a rose ceremony. Will she be satisfied with just having ZOMGROBERTO and Chris L. to chose from, instead of that small-spectacled, scoop-necked loser? I guess you know where I stand… See ya at 8 p.m. EST everyone! If you’re on time, I will be sharing the details of the amazing sex dream I had about ZOMGROBERTO. You don’t want to miss it. Keep reading »
I know, I missed last week’s liveblog. It was a day off! I apologize. But I bring much enthusiasm to tonight’s episode, in which Ali visits the final four’s hometowns and meet their families. She also gets a surprise from Frank, who “needs to talk.” We all know that ain’t ever good news. It’s like I always say — okay, not really — never trust a guy who lives at home and wears tiny glasses. See ya at 8 p.m. EST friends! Keep reading »
Back in 2007, “Bachelor” viewers were shocked when lame-oid Brad Womack decided not to choose either Jenni Croft or DeAnna Pappas in the final episode. Uh, didn’t he get that memo about the point of the show? DeAnna was totally heartbroken, but picked herself up and became “The Bachelorette.” Only she and her final choice—Jesse Csincsak—didn’t work out, either.
Now, DeAnna has found love for realz. And oddly enough, it happened because of “The Bachelor.” One of DeAnna’s good friends is Holly Durst, a contestant on “The Bachelor” who was let go by Matt Grant. (Bizarre side note: she also dated Jesse.) Holly later got together with Michael Stagliano, who tried to win over Jillian Harris on “The Bachelorette.” Holly and Michael decide to set up DeAnna with Michael’s twin, Stephen, and—shocker—it worked. DeAnna is currently home in Georgia, planning her wedding to Stephen, which will apparently be going down very soon. Before she left for the trip, Stephen tweeted, “The love of my life leaves me today to go home to Georgia : ( .” [Radar]
There’s something oddly inspiring about seeing someone who was crushed on “The Bachelor” find love in real life. After the jump, other folks who went from heartbroken to giddily happy in a very short time. Keep reading »
What do you do with the ring when an engagement is called off? It’s one of those subjects people can debate for hours, and recently there have been a slew of court cases about it. But for Jillian Harris and Ed Swiderski, who’ve ended their engagement, things are even more complicated since Ed didn’t technically buy the ring—ABC did. Jillian’s ring is a $60,000 monstrosity from Neil Lane, with a 2.05 carat stone in the center, six baguette cut diamonds around it, and a platinum band. And she is contractually obligated to return it. Apparently, “Bachelor” contracts stipulate that the ring belongs to the show until the couple has been together for two consecutive years. Even at that point, if things go sour and they want to sell or get rid of the ring, they have to give ABC a week’s notice, in written form. Geez, I wonder what the contract says about first-born children. Do they automatically have to be named Chris Harrison, regardless of gender? [Radar] Keep reading »
And for today’s edition of stories we saw coming 10 million miles away—Jillian Harris and Ed Swiderski have called off their engagement. What?!?! But “Bachelor” and “Bachelorette” couples always stay together. Jillian and Ed told the whole story to Us Weekly, but didn’t make it 100 percent clear whether they are totally dunzo or just putting wedding plans on indefinite hold. “I love him and I’m really sad, but I have to look out for me,” Jillian said. And Ed added, “Jillian isn’t happy and I’m definitely sad about the whole thing, but we got to work through some things on our own if we decide to move forward.”
Now, I like to think the best of people—especially, er, reality television participants—but doesn’t it seem a tad suspicious that they’re announcing their breakup five seconds after the flameout of Jake and Vienna? They wouldn’t be trying to bury the story, would they? Keep reading »
The Frisky enjoyed a three day weekend in celebration of Independence Day, which is why there was no liveblogging of the latest episode of “The Bachelorette” last night. However, I did watch and had many moments of “ZOMGROBERTO IS ZOMG SO FINE!!!” I watched the subsequent interview with recently split “Bachelor” couple Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi with my Great Aunt Mildred*, who happens to be a body language expert**. And my, oh my, did she have some thoughts about Jake and Vienna’s behavior and omissions. Find out her assessment*** of what they had to say — and how they said it — after the jump … Keep reading »
Recently, the word on the street has been that Ali Fedotowsky leaves “The Bachelorette” a single lady. As I watched Monday’s episode, I couldn’t get this out of my head, especially when Ali said something to the effect of, “To go though all this and leave alone … ” Way to foreshadow, ABC! But, Us Weekly assures us that this is not the case. Their sources tell them that Ali not only gets a proposal in Bora Bora, but that she accepts it. They say she is already at work planning her Converse-clad wedding, which will be in early 2011. So which report is true—that she leaves solo or finds her man? Guess we’ll have to wait and find out.
But even more exciting is Us Weekly‘s revelation that Ali and Roberto may have known each other before the show. Keep reading »
“I was not in a relationship before I went on the show and I am still single now. … I left those [voicemail] messages [played during my exit] when I was very confused and I was disgusted to hear messages with such private and personal content! I am quite upset that they were shared with the world just for an amazing scandal. Those messages were actually left after I told producers that I wanted OFF THE SHOW in Iceland. Yes, that’s right! I no longer wanted to be a part of the show and wanted to get on the first plane home to Toronto! … I no longer have any contact with Jessica, nor do I want her in my life in any way. I feel betrayed, manipulated and unfairly lied to by both the producers of ABC’s ‘The Bachelorette’ and Jessica. … Always keep this in mind that you can’t believe everything you see on TV.”
—Justin Rego takes to Facebook to give his side of the story on whether he had two girlfriends while courting Ali on “The Bachelorette.” Wait, did he really not address the part where he jumped over a fence with a broken foot while Ali was trying to confront him? And if he’s not in touch with Jessica anymore, why was he photographed with her in early June? [Facebook] Keep reading »
So, I was watching “The Bachelorette” on Monday night (I know I said I was boycotting it because it’s obviously a shamfest, but I’m already sucked in this season), and the true genius of the show dawned on me. Some brilliant exec at ABC came up with the perfect formula to make guys fall in love, or at least think that they are. Did you ever notice how the guys always fall truly, madly, deeply, and quickly for any “Bachelorette” bait that is placed before them? It seems like it would hardly make a difference who it was. Take Ali for example. She’s cute, I guess, but so annoying and totally boring with nappy Barbie extensions. Yet every single dude there claims he’s never met anyone like her before; they are all falling in love with her. How is that possible? After the jump, I think I’ve decoded the secret love potion. If only we could find a way to translate this to real-life dating, we’d have men dropping to their knees to propose. Or at least dying for a second date. Keep reading »
