Never underestimate the potential for someone to change your mind. That is the lesson I learned from last night’s “Bachelor Pad,” in which I finally came to love and root for The Weatherman. Keep reading »
Guess who has a new favorite Monday night trash TV show? “Bachelor Pad” debuted last night and was everything I could have hoped for and more. The premise: 19 former contestants on ABC’s “Bachelor” and “Bachelorette” series, living in a house together, having their lives taped, to find out what happens when people stop trying to fall in love and instead focus on winning money. Greed! Hookups! Tears! The lowdown on what happened in the first episode after the jump …

I’ve still been tearing up every now and then thinking about the rainbow Chris Lambton’s mom sent him from the other side right after Ali Fedotowsky dumped him for Roberto in Bora Bora on “The Bachelorette.” My heart was bleeding for him with his hot tattoo of his mom’s signature. 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 »
Not that I was really on team anyone before, but I’ve watched the Jake and Vienna breakup special. Actually, I watched it twice, once alone and once with Aunt Mildred the body language expert, hoping to gain a new perspective. I always hated Vienna. When I watched her on “The Bachelor,” I thought she was a whiny, immature drama queen. That hasn’t changed. I still think she is. Maybe a little trashy. Maybe a little desperate for attention. Maybe just really young and naïve about the world. I thought I would still hate her on the breakup special. I wanted to. I thought I would side with Jake. Wrong. Like it or not, I’m totally on her team. 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 »
