Before she made a name for herself as the token crazy bitch on this season of “The Bachelor,” Courtney Robertson (or “Cuntney” as Amelia lovingly [Really! -- Editor] refers to her), appeared in this “routinely spectacular” Caesars Palace commercial. I may be interpreting the story line incorrectly, but is she supposed to be a working girl? Anyhow, on a totally unrelated note, I just realized that Courtney is from the same hometown as me and the same age as my younger brother. Hmmm. If you’ll excuse me, I have some sleuthing to do.
If ABC’s “The Bachelor” teaches us anything about love (besides the fact that I am thrilled I was engaged and married before 25), it’s this: You can’t force love. From The Supremes we may have learned “You Can’t Hurry Love,” but “The Bachelor” has taught us something even more important.
The fact is, no matter how much you want to “open up” to someone or make them love you over the other girls, it’s never going to happen unless it’s there to begin with. There is a reason the “on paper” guy is bad everywhere else. And let’s face it: For most of the girls on the show, Ben Flajnik – and every Bachelor besides him — is merely good on paper.
It’s the annoying secret the sobbing girls in the limo always seem to forget. The fact is, not every guy is going to be a good match. Read more…
As Amelia said when she looked at this picture of actor Michael Cera and “Bachelor” Ben Flajnik at a Sundance Film Festival party, “There are a lot of things about this that make me uncomfie.” I couldn’t agree more. I had a visceral feeling of discomfort the moment I saw it. I have so many questions. First: Why was Ben invited to Sundance? Please don’t tell me he’s trying to be an actor now. Continuing on: What’s up with Michael’s mustache? His hat? Why is he holding Ben in such a lascivious fashion? Did they know each other before this moment? Or is Michael just trying to be ironic? Why is Ben so boring? OK. Your turn! [Michael Cera looks like my ex-boyfriend in that photo. Oof. -- Editor] [Pop Sugar]
For us, the best part about Mondays is our girls’ night viewing party for “The Bachelor.” But sometimes we find ourselves at home for the show, competing with our significant other for the TV (hello, Monday night football). So instead of fighting your man for tube time, here’s how to get him hooked on the show! Read more…
It’s time for Bachelor Ben’s second week of hot dates, sloppy makeout sessions, and sobbing psychopaths — and I will be there as your guide, liveblogging all of the craziness. Check back to this post at 8 p.m. EST or follow along on Twitter at @friskyliveblog. I cannot wait to see what Blogger Jenna does this week… Keep reading »
From the moment I saw the camera panning in on the quotes on her laptop screen a la Carrie Bradshaw — “What does love REALLY mean?” and “Do I believe in true love?” — my interest in “Bachelor” contestant, “blogger” and “freelance writer” Jenna Burke, was piqued. In her opening interview she says, “I know deep down that relationships work and don’t work. But that’s not enough for me … I don’t want to end up with nobody. So it becomes a feeling of panic. It’s really contradicting because that’s not me.” Hmm … did she mean “contradictory?” Keep reading »
