Trend Alert! Colorful Leather Driving Gloves

On last night’s episode of “The Bachelor,” I noted that ousted bachelorette Jillian (you shoulda won, girl!) rocked a totally fetching pair of hot pink driving gloves. And she’s not alone — in “Confessions of a Shopaholic,” Isla Fisher’s character, Rebecca Bloomwood, wears these distinctive gloves as well, in at least four different colors (pink, orange, yellow, and purple). They don’t really keep your hands frostbite-free during winter, but they are ideal for the crisp months in fall and spring — snatch ‘em up while they’re hot! After the jump, eight pairs we think are particularly fresh. Keep reading »

Would America Fall In Love With A Single Mom As “The Bachelorette”?

“The Bachelor” is about to wrap up its 13th season (or the 16th, if you include the four seasons of “The Bachelorette”), but hasn’t really been the subject of water cooler talk for years. It’s been enough of a success for ABC that they’ve kept it around this long, but studio execs finally struck oil again this season, by electing to feature Jason Mesnick as the man 25 women wanted to meet and marry. The show has seen a ratings surge of 37% above its last season (featuring my personal fave, The British Bach), and the network is already getting ready to do a casting call for a 14th season, after the fifth “Bachelorette” airs this summer. But can they recreate the success of this season? Only if they find another sexy single dad! It’s no coincidence that “The Bachelor” is suddenly the show to watch when the man in question is raising an adorable son on his own. After all, women LOVE a hot dad, especially a dad who has to shoulder the burden of parenthood all by his lonesome. All 25 women were eager to become insta-Step Mommies to Mesnick’s son — though most of them seem ill-equipped for the job. So what would happen if ABC tried the same approach with “The Bachelorette,” and found a (hot, always) single mom as its catch? Would 25 would be suitors come running, ready to be Insta-Step Daddies? Somehow I doubt it. Keep reading »

    Liveblogging “The Bachelor” Premiere January 5th 2009

    Starting at 8pm this evening, I’ll be liveblogging the two hour (lord, help me) premiere of “The Bachelor” starring last season’s “Bachelorette” loser Jason Mesnick. To be honest, I found Jason to be mealy-mouthed and kind of annoying, so I was terribly bummed that he was chosen as the new “Bachelor.” But I am putting aside my previous feelings and opening my mind to the possibility that ABC might have finally found a man who can make a “Bachelor” love match last. And this time, the Bach is looking for a wife and a baby momma for his son. Come back to this post at 8pm and help me liveblog the first episode — it’s one of my faves, as there’s usually a crazy bitch or two who gets wasted and tosses her panties in the Bach’s face.

    Don’t Do It: Dating A Guy With Children

    If you’re a 20- to 35-year-old woman without any children I caution you against dating a man with kids. I did this once and, let me tell you, I learned my lesson. I dated The Cop off-and-on for about six years and I have to admit that love kept me from realizing just how big a problem his children were in our relationship. Recently, he and I made plans to have a friendly, totally platonic drink to celebrate my promotion. He canceled the day of because his youngest daughter had hit her head and he’d spent the previous night in the emergency room. I totally understood why he had to cancel, but the situation also reminded me why he and I could never work and why I will never date a man with children again. Keep reading »

    The Bachelor: Where Are They Now?

    ABC is letting me down. Following up Matt Grant, the hot British guy, with rejected Bachelorette contestant Jason Mesnick for the next season of The Bachelor is such a huge letdown. I know plenty of other women who watched the show, gag, liked the guy, but I found him to be wimpy, and mealy-mouthed, and completely devoid of charm and dazzle. Though I know the producers are hoping to go in a new direction by having a single dad as The Bach, I just don’t buy this as a good spin for a reality TV dating show. It’s irresponsible for a father to date that many women on national TV and then ask one of them to marry him at the end, without having the child get to know what could be his new mommy. But whatevs. I think I am just upset that the next season of The Bachelor is going to be devoid of sex appeal. Keep reading »
