The Slut-Shaming “Bachelorette” Kaitlyn Bristowe Endured Is What Women Online Deal With Every Day

As per usual, the penultimate episode of this season of “The Bachelorette,” which aired last night, had Kaitlyn Bristowe coming face-to-face with the suitors she sent packing over the course of the season. But it also had her sitting across from host Chris Harrison as he read a series of hateful, slut-shaming tweets (watch above) that had…

“The Bachelorette” Tries — And Fails! — To Slut-Shame Kaitlyn Bristowe

Since the beginning of the season, ABC has been hyping THE MOST SCANDALOUS episode of “The Bachelorette” EVER, in which Kaitlyn Bristowe has sex with one of her male suitors and ALL HELL BREAKS LOOSE. The previews showed Kaitlyn sobbing about making a terrible mistake, the implication being that her decision to have sex with one of…

ABC Asked Amy Schumer To Be The Next “Bachelorette,” Better Not Be Kidding

Don’t play with my emotions, ABC! Just a day after Amy Schumer nailed her appearance on “The Bachelorette,” prompting fans to tweet their desire to see the single comedian as the next woman to hand out roses, Robert Mills, the senior vice president for ABC Entertainment, made her an “official” offer.

OK here is the official…

Amy Schumer’s Appearance On “The Bachelorette” Proved That Amy Schumer Should BE “The Bachelorette”

You know what makes “The Bachelorette” infinitely more tolerable? Comedian Amy Schumer, cutting through the bullshit and bringing the laughs. Amy is a hardcore fan of the “Bachelor/Bachelorette” franchise and an admitted fangirl for Kaitlyn Bristowe, who she says she likes more than any other “Bachelorette” in the show’s history. I can’t speak for Amy,…

Who’s Excited For The Most Slut-Shamey Season Of “The Bachelorette” Ever?!

On last night’s second part of “The Bachelorette” premiere, Kaitlyn Bristowe was chosen over Kelly Kapowski Britt Nilsson to continue her journey towards finding a three month relationship, I mean everlasting love. I’m psyched because I genuinely like and relate to Kaitlyn, but after seeing the full preview for what’s ahead, I’m also a little…

Just Look At This Asshole: Meet Ryan McDill, Who Was Booted From “The Bachelorette” For Getting Drunk And Making A Rape Joke

Douchebags abound on “The Bachelorette,” but Ryan McDill truly takes the cake. During last night’s season premiere, the “junkyard technician” from Missouri emerged from the limo to greet this season’s two “Bachelorette” hopefuls, Britt Nilsson and Kaitlyn Bristowe (the dudes got to select who they wanted to date by “putting their rose” in their choice’s “box,&#8221…

This season starts off by pitting two “Bachelorette” hopefuls, last season’s Britt (left) and Kaitlyn (right), against each other, with the 25 guys getting to pick who they would like to spend the rest of the season dating. Ugh. If…

An Infographic Guide To “The Bachelor” (Week 10! And Your Next “Bachelorette” Is…)

Well, it turns out, ABC couldn’t decide between “charming, charismatic beauty, Britt” and “Kaitlyn, the gorgeous, fun- loving, warm-hearted, but irreverent firecracker.” (Um, Kaitlyn has more adjectives, doesn’t that count as extra points?) So they decided to do the most patriarchal thing ever: they’re letting the dudes decide. Last night on “After the Final Rose&#8221…

“The Bachelorette” Romance Reject Nick Viall Blogs About Sex In The Fantasy Suite With Andi Dorfman

While “Bachelorette” Andi Dorfman is busy posting pictures of her fiancé Josh Murray on her Instagram, her number two choice Nick Viall is preoccupied with something else. Getting dumped by Andi, yes, but also why she slept with him in the “fantasy suite” (AKA the place on the show where the couple can be together…

Gross Old Dude On Fox News Calls “Bachelorette” Andi Dorfman A “Slut”

Why Fox News is recapping “The Bachelorette: After The Final Rose” is beyond me. Alas, while “The Five” discussed how romance reject Nick Viall quite reasonably asked Andi Dorfman why she had sex with him in the “fantasy suite” if she knew she wasn’t in love with him, gross old dude panelist Bob Beckel…

Ugh: Nick Viall’s Letter To Andi Dorfman Ends Up On Facebook

Is nothing private on “The Bachelorette”? The letter that romance reject Nick Viall gave host Chris Harrison to hand off to Andi has now been published on the show’s Facebook page. I pity the ABC intern who had to type this up and post it online. [Facebook via US Weekly]

No, Andi Dorfman Was Not Slut-Shamed On Last Night’s Shocking “Bachelorette” Finale

How about that “Bachelorette” finale, huh? Crazy! Unexpected! An incredibly annoying for more reasons than I can count. After the jump, I’ll break down — okay, rant about in a somewhat meandering fashion — Andi Dorfman’s “controversial” final rose decision, the OMG revelation that sex actually happens in the Fantasy Suite, and why cries that…

“The Bachelorette” Superlatives: The Most Emotionally Manipulative Date Ever!

There should be some sort of adult lady merit badge for sitting through four hours of “The Bachelorette” in 48 hours. I’m just saying. Let’s review last night’s episode, which featured the most emotionally manipulative date I’ve ever witnessed on this stupid show that I just can’t quit, not to mention an unexpected departure.

“The Bachelorette” Superlatives: Andi Goes On The Most Embarrassing & Unhinged Dates In “Bachelorette” History

For some reason, ABC has decided that one two-hour episode a week just isn’t enough “Bachelorette.” This week, there are two two-hour episodes of my favorite reality TV dating show, one last night and then another tonight. Yay, four hours of “The Bachelorette” — how did I get so lucky? The good news is, last night’s episode…
