“The Bachelorette” Superlatives: Two Reasons I Had To Turn Off Last Night’s Episode

Every season, I dutifully sit through each needlessly long episode (two hours! why?!) of “The Bachelor” or “Bachelorette,” delighting in the ridiculousness of the various dates and awkwardness of the forced romantic interactions. But I hit a wall pretty early into last night’s episode and had to turn it off. Why? Well, I’ll let these…

“The Bachelorette” Superlatives: The Best & Worst Moments From Last Night’s Premiere

Woohoo! “The Bachelorette” is back! Andi Dorfman, last season’s tough talking DA who told Juan Pablo where to stick it, is basically this show’s ideal star. She’s pretty, she’s feisty and, most of all, she is desperate to find love and be engaged at the end. Unfortunately for her, the casting directors phoned it the fuck i…

Source: Clare Crawley Wasn’t Picked To Be “The Bachelorette” Because She Had Sex With Juan Pablo

Fucking Juan Pablo in the ocean really screwed Clare: a source tells the blog Hollywood Life that she was in consideration to be “The Bachelorette,” but they were afraid they would lose viewers over her sexual behavior. As you certainly remember, Clare snuck over to Juan Pablo’s cabana one night and they had sex…

Don’t Hold Your Breath For A Gay Or Lesbian On “The Bachelor,” Says Chris Harrison

After 27 seasons of almost painful heterosexuality, we were not optimistic that either “The Bachelor” or “The Bachelorette” would introduce a gay or lesbian contestant. I mean, it took them this long to finally have a Latino “Bachelor.” And in an interview this weekend with The New York Times Magazine, longtime host Chris Harrison pretty much…

Desiree Hartsock From “The Bachelorette” Gets Engaged To Chris!

“The Bachelorette” ended on a womp-womp note last night: after Brooks ran out in the second-to-last episode, Desiree accepted a marriage proposal from Chris Siegfried.  “I feel like I was blindsided by my feelings for Brooks, that I couldn’t see that the one thing I always needed was right in front of me,” she…

13 Things We’ll See On “The Bachelorette” Tonight

Sure we all love ‘The Bachelorette,” but it’s not the romantic dates, the not-so-friendly competition, the eye candy, or even the man tears that keep us coming back week after week—it’s the unadulterated drama.
We love it, and it keeps us glued to our televisions, which is why the best night of the season is “Men Tell All.” After…

21 Signs You’re Addicted To “The Bachelor”

We all love our reality television and look forward to our weekly ‘dates’ with Chris Harrison. But if you’ve been there since Alex Michael, know Bob Guiney’s birthday, and consider Tenley Molzahn a friend, it might be something more for you.

“The Bachelorette” Recap: These Fools Made A Rap Video With Soulja Boy

The “Bachelor”/”Bachelorette” franchise has a number of frequently used words and catchphrases. “Journey.” “Fairytale.” “Princess.” “I’m not here to make friends.” And, most notably, “here for the right reasons.” Well, this episode managed to make me loathe that phrase more than I thought possible, by making this week’s group date a hip-hop music video shoot. In which…

“The Bachelorette” Recap: Desiree Is Not A “Fantasy Suite On The First Date” Type Of Girl

As has become tradition, the star of this season of “The Bachelorette” is a beloved and completely palatable cast-off from the previous season of “The Bachelor.” Desire Hartsock’s heart “was broken” by “Bachelor” Sean Lowe after her brother gave him a hard time on her hometown date.

Girl Talk: My Mom Wants Me To Date A Reality TV Star

One of my mother’s favorite pastimes, aside from texting me my daily horoscope, is playing Yenta for her 30-something single daughter. Only she doesn’t try to set me up with nice Jewish boys. No, she prefers to shop for my potential suitors on reality television.

Did Ames Brown Ghost Jackie Gordon After “Bachelor Pad”?

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…
