In Bed With … “The Bachelor”‘s Jason Mesnick

Note: I just have to say that I, Kiki T., being of sound body and mind, in no way would ever want to get “In Bed With” this guy, but, like watching a car accident, curiosity makes you do (and write) some messed up things. In case any of you like car crashes too, here’s one for you…

Bonnie Sheds New Light On “Bachelor” Drama

Yesterday afternoon I happened to switch on “The Bonnie Hunt Show,” a program I don’t normally watch (honestly!), just as Bonnie was introducing “The Bachelor”‘s Jason Mesnick and his Bachelorette, Molly Malaney. Last week I was on vacation in Central America, but by some grace of God, my hotel had satellite cable and I was able to catch the finale and both “After The Final Rose” shows (much to my boyfriend’s chagrin). I also might have flipped through the People that featured Jason on the cover while I waited to board my flight back to the States, so I was pretty up on what was going on in “Bachelor”-land despite missing some of the TV interviews last week. Still, there were some juicy revelations in this two part Bonnie Hunt interview — which clocks in at a whopping 17 minutes, 6 seconds, so grab some popcorn and get comfy. Pay particular attention to the little nugget of info shared at the tail-end of part two (clip after the jump, at around 8:50 or so), which sheds some new light on all the drama. Keep reading »

Charting The Life Span Of A “Bachelor” Relationship

This week’s season finale of “The Bachelor” may have been exciting, but really, when you think about it, the results were pretty typical of past seasons. Former Dallas Cowboys cheerleader Melissa squealed as Papa/Poo-Poo Bach slipped a ring on her finger. The episode ended with the two of them jumping in a pool for a smoochfest. Then, two seconds later, came the “After the Final Rose” special. And a teary eyed Jason proceeded to dump Melissa because “the chemistry had changed” and he was totes hung up on Molly, the girl he’d sent packing.

Shocker? Sure. But “The Bachelor” hardly has a track record for couples staying together for longer than their 15 minutes of fame. Currently, Poo-Poo and Sloppy are still together, but the likelihood of that lasting doesn’t look good. After the jump, exactly how long the “Bachelor” couples have stuck it out. Any woman thinking of responding to their next casting call, beware. Keep reading »

Thoughts From Guys On Our IM: How Long Should You Fight To Save A Struggling Relationship?

After liveblogging four hours of “The Bachelor” over the last two days, it’s no wonder I cannot get Poo-Poo Bach (as he was renamed last night), Sloppy Seconds (aka Molly), and Melissa out of my mind. As a result, it inspired this week’s Thoughts From Guys On Our IM topic, specifically breakups, and how much effort a couple should put in to saving a relationship before calling it quits. As I wrote about yesterday, “The Bachelor” hit a little close to home for me (not in a crying way, just in a “oh, I can relate to that” way), as I felt like in my breakup, I was given the option of trying to save what my fiance and I had. But how do guys feel about how much time and effort they should put into trying to make things work? Or are they more likely to throw in the towel as soon as the going gets rough? Between yesterday and today, I IM’d them to find out. Keep reading »

Star Couplings: Madonna Gets “It,” John Edwards Makes Confession

  • Madonna supposedly received 100 copies of “It,” Stephen King’s horror movie/book, because Guy Ritchie refers to her as “It” and has compared her to Pennywise, the villain clown who kills children. This is even funnier than when he said her body was like gristle. [Perez Hilton]
  • Melissa Rycroft from “The Bachelor” had an inkling she’d be dumped on national TV, according to the show’s host. [UsMagazine.com]

    Liveblogging “The Bachelor: After The Final Rose” Special … Again!

    It just won’t end will it? ABC must be in cahoots with my local wine shop, because this show has cost me a pretty penny in libations. But they’re the only thing that keep me sane during this travesty! Tonight, Jason and his trade-in, Molly, come back to talk about what’s gone on since the FIRST “After The Final Rose” was filmed. Melissa is back too. We hope she’s no longer sad and humiliated. Anyhoo, the drama goes down at 10 pm EST — in the meantime, a poll… Keep reading »

    Papa Bach, Engagement Take-Backs & Cowards

    Last night’s episode of “The Bachelor,” and more specifically, the “After The Final Rose” special, hit close to home. After all, I was engaged, and then overnight my fiance decided he needed to go on a break, which was really him dumping me without saying so and looking like the bad guy, and I was never given the chance to fight for our relationship. It’s all good now, seriously. After much therapy and tears and internal reflection, I am doing just dandy and have definitely realized that our breakup was for the best. I suspect Melissa will come to realize this too, if she hasn’t already, and I’m sure everyone in her life is going to say things to her like, “Better now then after the wedding! Better now then after you have kids! Better now!” which is what everyone still says to me. And it’s true. YES, better now. But still, the fact that my ex, and Jason, made a decision that ultimately is better for the other person involved, doesn’t take away from the fact that they are selfish, immature, somewhat prickish d-bags. The fact that it’s better in the end for me, and for Melissa, is just luck and coincidence. It’s not a good deed. Neither wins a medal. End results matter, sure, but so does intent. Keep reading »

    The Bachelor’s Melissa Rycroft Is Sad To Be Dumped

    Regardless of which one of these MySpace pages belongs to Melissa Rycroft, who got her ass dumped on “The Bachelor” finale last night — take your pick — she appears to be super sad! Or, you know, totally humiliated. “Love is a promise, love is a souvenir, once given never forgotten, never let it disappear,” reads one, but we like the update on the other one better: “Mel is completely humiliated.” Molly Malaney, who got dumped and then reupped, doesn’t appear to have a social networking presence, probably because she knows everybody hates her guts now. Melissa, on the other hand, has multiple Facebook groups dedicated to her: “Jason Mesnick is a SCUM BAG for dumping Melissa Rycroft!” and “Thank You Jason, We Will Gladly Marry Melissa Rycroft.” I think we may have found the next Bachelorette.

    Liveblogging “The Bachelor” Finale & “After The Final Rose” Special February 2nd 2009

    I’ve got my two bottles of wine, I’ve got my leftovers, and I’ve got my catheter all hooked up. Just kidding on that last part, but maybe it’s not such a bad idea. After all, tonight’s finale is going to be three hours long — two hours for the finale and an hour for the special afterward, which may end up being WAY more exciting, if the rumors are true. Are you excited? I am! Check back with this post starting at 8 pm EST! Keep reading »

    Face Off: Melissa Vs. Molly, Who Will Win Papa Bach’s Heart?

    Finally, the day we’ve all been waiting for is here! Papa Bach will give out his final rose tonight and, if the rumor we’ve heard are true, he promptly take it back on the “After The Final Rose” special and give it to the woman he rejected. Now that’s gonna be entertainment! But until then, both Melissa and Molly have a 50/50 chance of winning Jason Mesnick’s heart, and a 100% chance of boring us to tears. In the meantime, as we await the three hour extravaganza (and I’ll be liveblogging it, per usual, pity me), here’s a Face Off between Bubbly Bitch #1 and Bubbly Bitch #2…. Keep reading »
