Ashley Hebert Gets Lucky — Chantal Is Taken! — And Becomes The Next “Bachelorette”

Last night, after the disappointing revelation that Brad and Emily are probably not going to live happily ever after, speculation instantly began on who would be the next “Bachelorette.” Would ABC go with the obvious choice, Chantal O’Brien, the gorgeous brunette who was Brad’s runner-up? That theory were quickly shot down during “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” On the show, it was announced that Ashley Hebert, the sweet dental student Brad sent home from Cape Town, would be the new “Bachelorette.” [CNN] Keep reading »

Brad And Emily, And Other “Bachelor” Couples Who Were Over Before “After The Final Rose” Even Aired

Last night’s season finale of “The Bachelor” was an incredible letdown. I felt pretty sure a few weeks back, when Brad Womack and Emily Maynard landed on their own private island and he broke into hives while trying to tell her how much he cared about her, that Emily would be his choice in the end. As expected, Brad let Chantal go in a burst of tears and then got down on one knee and slipped a big, glittering diamond on Emily’s finger. “I’ve wanted to tell you I’ve loved you for so long,” he said, before telling her she’s “the one.” Big duh.

But then came the “After the Final Rose” ceremony. Keep reading »

Kasey Kahl Is Guarding And Protecting Vienna Girardi’s Heart Now

File this love match under “So Wrong, It’s Right.” Vienna Girardi, who won Jake Pavelka‘s heart on “The Bachelor” and then lost him in one of the most explosive televised breakups we’ve ever seen on “After the Final Rose,” has a new man! Krazy Kasey Kahl, who vied for Ali Fedowsky‘s love on “The Bachelorette”! Now, the “Bachelor”/”Bachelorette” pool of contestants is about as incestuous as you can get, so Vienna and Kasey are hardly the first random couple to come out of the hit ABC show, but they are, by far, the most ridiculous. Vienna, for starters, is crazy, though we did totally take her side in the breakup with Jake. But Kasey is truly one of the more embarassingly entertaining contestants ever. Remember how he wouldn’t stop saying he wanted to “guard and protect” Ali’s heart? Remember how it inspired the world’s lamest tattoo on his forearm, and Ali promptly sent him packing? Remember how he warbled a song he dedicated to Ali and Ali was all crinnnnnge? Well, Vienna ain’t cringing at Kasey’s ridiculous tattoo or tone deaf singing, calling Kasey a “wonderful man” on Twitter. Aww, I think it’s sweet these truly crazy kids found each other.

Eliminated Contestant, Michelle Money, Knows Who “The Bachelor” Will End Up With

“Chantal was hard to get to know. She keeps her distance from women. But I left feeling that if I ever saw her again, I’d give her the biggest hug. I still don’t think she’s right for Brad. He needs someone soft-spoken and feminine. [Emily is] just a Southern belle, ladylike and sweet. Emily will be the one who ends up with him, if that’s what she wants. It’ll be more about her choosing him.”

— Eliminated bachelorette, Michelle Money, on how”The Bachelor” will end. Well, you heard it straight from the Bunny Boiler’s mouth. As crazy as she is, I agree with her assessment. But I have a hunch that Emily will jump ship before Brad can get a ring on her finger. [People] Keep reading »

The Ladies Of “The Bachelor” Pose For Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issue


Nothing says “Be My Valentine” like forcing three ladies to strip down, put on red bikinis, and shoot photos for Sports Illustrated‘s annual swimsuit issue. That is exactly what “The BachelorBrad Womack will be doing on next week’s conveniently timed episode. Ashley Herbert, Chantal O’Brien, and Michelle Money are the lucky ladies who do the shoot, as you can see in this preview clip.

Says Ashley, “Watch out, Gisele!” [People] Keep reading »

Is Next Week’s “Bachelor” NASCAR Date Grossly Off Track?

I’m just not sure what to make of this clip from next week’s episode of “The Bachelor.” In it, Brad Womack takes the woman on a group date to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway for a NASCAR date. Midway through, he looks at Emily Maynard, the Southern blonde who has quickly become a fan favorite, and notes, “I’m realizing something’s really wrong with Emily.” Ya think, smart guy? Remember when she told you that she had been engaged to a NASCAR driver (Ricky Hendrick) who was killed in a plane crash in 2004, a week before she found out she was pregnant with his baby? Did it really not occur to you that going to a NASCAR track on a date might bring up some emotions? Keep reading »

Fang Girl Explains Why She Ditched Brad Womack, How She Got Her Fangs

“It was definitely the Emily thing that set it off. When she came clean, it pulled on my heartstrings. I felt like I was competing for something I wasn’t necessarily sure I needed. You feel less deserving. They all have these stories and heartache and they need this love … Fighting other girls for a guy has never been my style. But had I stepped out of the limo and knew he was going to be my husband, I would have been in a stronger fight for him. But at the end of the day, did I see myself being his Texas housewife? Not sure. Could we have worked? Maybe. Probably not. He said he’d have a hard time bringing me home to his grandmother … I have always been into the darker side of things and love the mystery and sexiness of vampires. I became friends with the leader of the underground vampire world. He had a fangsmith so I had a pair made. I wore them for Halloween once and had such a blast that I brought them out on numerous occasions afterwards. It has become kind of my signature thing.”

– Madison Garton (aka Fang Girl) talking about her sudden and unexpected departure from “The Bachelor” last week. I was personally sad to see Fang Girl go. She was one of my favorite contestants ever. You can’t blame her for leaving. She is way too edgy for boring Brad Womack. But the interesting part of this is that she runs with the leader of the underground vampire world and visits a fangsmith. Tell me more about that, Fang Girl. [People] Keep reading »

Jennifer Aniston Doesn’t Get “The Bachelor”

“You know what I find fascinating? ‘The Bachelor.’ I was mesmerized by how these girls, they meet this guy, they have three dates together or something, and they’re weeping as though they’ve just lost the love of their life. I don’t understand that.”

Jennifer Aniston waxes poetic about “The Bachelor” in the February issue of Allure. I don’t understand “The Bachelor” either, Jen. All these beautiful women battle it out like feral cats over an emotionally stunted douche? WTF. But it’s like crack. I can’t stop watching. I think the fact that producers lock all these women in a house and feed them alcohol 24/7 contributes to the perpetuation of the insane female stereotype. I might fall in love under those conditions as well. I’d like to believe that most of those women are not as embarrassing in their real lives. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

Chris Harrison Defends His Rose Counting On “The Bachelor”

“You realize how little I do on this show. So, please, please don’t take away the one thing I do. … I wanted to get rid of that very early on. Eight years ago, I’m like, ‘This is ridiculous.’ It’s not about the math. It’s not saying, ‘Ellen, there’s a coffee cup between us.’ You know that. It’s kind of like, ‘Oh my gosh. One of us is going home.’ It’s really about setting that moment. It’s silly. There’s really no way I can explain that it’s not silly.”

—Chris Harrison semi-defends his job on “The Bachelor” after Ellen DeGeneres points out that he doesn’t really need to step in and say, “Ladies, it’s the final rose,” because, hello, it’s pretty obvious. [People] Keep reading »

“The Bachelor” Season 15: I Forgive You, Brad Womack

Brad Womack is back for his second chance at love on season 15 of “The Bachelor.” Geez, have there really been that many seasons? Anyhow, I turned on the tube with my rotten tomatoes at the ready to hurl at the screen. In my estimation, Brad is the archetype of the emotionally crippled man. That guy who is in a wheelchair, but unwilling to do anything to help himself walk again. Or so I thought! Keep reading »
