“The Bachelor”‘s Courtney Robertson Practices For Her Big Moment With Ben

“Bachelor” contestant Courtney Roberstson has done this whole engagement thing before. Photos from her Hearts of Fire diamond ad campaign hit Life & Style this week. Well at least we know what she’ll look like when Ben Flajnik pops the question. And I believe he will, as much as it pains me to acknowledge that.

Courtney From “The Bachelor” Plagiarizes Carrie On “Sex And The City”

When it comes to reality TV competition shows, I tend to root for the evil genius. That’s why I am basically the only person watching this season of “The Bachelor” that is firmly on Team Courtney. Courtney Robertson has been unflinchingly cunning in her efforts to win dopey Ben Flajnik’s heart and unlike “unlikable” contestant…

“Bachelor” Contestant Courtney Robertson Gets Auto-Tuned

I know, auto-tuning kind of peaked with Antoine Dodson’s “Bed Intruder,” but I think this auto-tuned video of “Bachelor” contestant Courtney Robertson signifies a resurgence of the trend. A very appropriate use of auto-tuning. Favorite thing: Ben as a puppet. Absolutely stinking brilliant. If he ends up with this chick, I am officially boycotting “The…

“The Bachelor”‘s Courtney Robertson In A Caesars Palace Commercial

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?

The “Bachelor” Women Need To Stop Forcing Love

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 “ope…

Let’s Talk About All The Things Wrong With This Photo Of Michael Cera And Ben Flajnik

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…

Deep Thoughts From Jenna Burke Of “The Bachelor”

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…

11 Reality Stars With Shady Pasts

It takes an interesting type of person to agree to sign on for a reality TV show. Some are kooky, others ambitious, most fame hungry, and a few, well … just plain shady. Last season on Bravo’s “Top Chef: Just Desserts,” it was easy to see that runner-up Morgan Wilson was a total egomaniac, but…

10 Ways To Win Over New “Bachelor,” Ben Flajnik

And it’s official—ABC has confirmed that Ben Flajnik is in fact the new “Bachelor.” I’m just not sure how to feel about this news. Ben is cute and sweet, and the fact that he is a winemaker makes him quite a bit sexier. But he’s also a thinker—a thinker who sounds like a robot with…

On Monday’s episode of “Bachelor Pad,” Ames Brown melted our frozen hearts when, rather than continue in the quest for $250K without his new paramour Jackie Gordon, he waved goodbye to the cast and hopped in the limo to head home alongside her. “I think Jackie and I are falling in love,” he said i…

Shun, Shag, Or Marry: The Milquetoast Hosts Of Reality TV

Sure, Jeff Probst has dimples the size of the Grand Canyon, but his function on “Survivor” is pretty much only to deliver the line, “The tribe has spoken.” Oh, and to snuff out that flame. Like Chris Harrison on “The Bachelor” and Ryan Seacrest on “American Idol,” he mainly blends into the scenery of the…

Am I really about to get involved in the latest season of “The Bachelorette” with Ashley Hebert, a girl who in my estimation, is not really ready to settle down? I say this because at the end of last season, when she and Brad Womack were getting down to brass tacks, she hadn’t even considered
