DeAnna Pappas And Other Broken-Hearted “Bachelor” Contestants Who Found Love

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…

Jillian Harris Contractually Obligated To Return Her Ring

What do you do with the ring when an engagement is called off? It’s one of those subjects people can debate for hours, and recently there have been a slew of court cases about it. But for Jillian Harris and Ed Swiderski, who’ve ended their engagement, things are even more complicated since Ed didn’t technically…

Jillian And Ed Call Off Their Engagement

And for today’s edition of stories we saw coming 10 million miles away—Jillian Harris and Ed Swiderski have called off their engagement. What?!?! But “Bachelor” and “Bachelorette” couples always stay together. Jillian and Ed told the whole story to Us Weekly, but didn’t make it 100 percent clear whether they are totally dunzo or just…

Jake And Vienna Face Off: My Great Aunt Mildred Decodes Their Body Language

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

Wait, Maybe Ali Does Actually Get Engaged

Recently, the word on the street has been that Ali Fedotowsky leaves “The Bachelorette” a single lady. As I watched Monday’s episode, I couldn’t get this out of my head, especially when Ali said something to the effect of, “To go though all this and leave alone … ” Way to foreshadow, ABC! But, Us

Quotable: Justin Rego Gives His Side Of “The Bachelorette” Story

“I was not in a relationship before I went on the show and I am still single now. … I left those [voicemail] messages [played during my exit] when I was very confused and I was disgusted to hear messages with such private and personal content! I am quite upset that they were shared with…

6 Steps For Making A Man Fall Madly In Love

So, I was watching “The Bachelorette” on Monday night (I know I said I was boycotting it because it’s obviously a shamfest, but I’m already sucked in this season), and the true genius of the show dawned on me. Some brilliant exec at ABC came up with the perfect formula to make guys fall i…

Tonight on “The Bachelorette,” Ali gets a phone call that changes her life forever. Who is the caller? Jake, calling to beg for her back upon realizing Vienna is a skank who just wants him for his body? Krazy Kasey, saying he got a new tattoo he thinks she’ll like? Paris Hilton, asking to get…

Bachelorette Ali Gives Her Final Rose To Jennifer Love Hewitt?!

So, I saw this photo and was like, “Whoa, weird. Who knew Ali Fedotowsky was friends with Jennifer Love Hewitt?” The two met the night this photo was taken at bingo night or something, and became insta-buddies. It makes sense when you think about it — Ali is on a reality TV dating show, while…

Gloria Steinem (Almost) Drops The S-Bomb Talking Reality TV With Katie Couric

Uh oh. Feminist icon Gloria Steinem has some choice words — actually, just one four-letter word — for CBS’ Katie Couric about reality TV.

Steinem says dating shows like “The Bachelor” are “incredibly stupid” and “what is most offensive about them is it’s not equal opportunity stupidity.” Couric points out that…

Frisky Rant: It’s Time To Boycott “The Bachelor”

The announcement that Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi have split is the straw breaking this camel’s back. I think I’ve had just about enough of “The Bachelor.” I have known for a long time that the relationships born and bred in front of a camera are a shamfest (except for maybe Ryan and Trista) but…

Liveblogging “The Bachelorette” On June 21, 2010

Well, I think we’ve made our way through one climactic milestone on this season of “The Bachelorette” — last week, Krazy Kasey did not try and kill himself. Instead he did something less permanent to show his love for Ali — he branded himself with the lamest “Bachelor”-inspired tattoo ever. This week, after being mercifully…

Kate Gosselin To Do A Dating Show?

Kate Gosselin, can you stop sending us mixed signals? A few weeks ago, she told “The Today Show” that she wasn’t ready to start dating again, but then OK! Magazine alleged today that not only has she joined JDate and eHarmony.com, but she’s already been on a date with a football coach. Now the word…

“Bachelorette” Mystery Solved: Justin Rego’s Reappearing/Disappearing Broken Foot

The writers over at TV Squad have a serious eagle eye. Looking at a replay of last week’s episode of “The Bachelorette,” they noticed that during Justin Rego’s epic walk on crutches to surprise Ali at her house, his broken foot changed sides. For most of the walk, the cast was on his left foot,…

What Is The “Bachelorette” Vetting Process?

Last night, “Bachelorette” contestant Kasey Kahl showed the true level of his crazy, repeating the phrase “I’m here to protect and guard your heart” 90,000 times and getting an ugly tattoo on his wrist to symbolize his intentions. During their one-on-one date, Ali questioned Kasey’s sincerity. We, on the other hand, totally believe that he…

Krazy Kasey Gets A Cheesy Tattoo For “Bachelorette” Ali

If you weren’t following my “Bachelorette” liveblog last night, than allow me to recap the best ZOMG moment on the show thus far. After bachelor Kasey Kahl was denied a rose at the end of his one-on-one date with Ali Fedotowsky (though he wasn’t sent packing) because she felt he wasn’t being completely sincere,…

Got a case of the Mondays? Cheer up — another episode of “The Bachelorette” is on tonight and it’s going to be a doozy! According to the preview, tonight’s episode is the one that hints Kasey — that’s the guy who sort of sounds like he might be partially deaf, although so far it’s gone…

“Bachelor Pad” Is “The Real World” Meets “The Bachelorette”

I’m still not exactly sure how ABC milks the not-all-that-much-that-happens in a week on “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette” and makes it into a two-hour episode. But they do—and it’s highly entertaining. So what would happen if the network rounded up some of the top personalities from all the seasons of the show and had…

Is “Bachelorette” Ali Still Single?

If you’ve followed some of the spoilers for this season’s “The Bachelorette,” you already have an idea which two final guys Ali gives roses to. But could it be possible that Ali actually chooses neither of them in the end? On Ryan Seacrest’s KIIS-FM radio show yesterday, she hinted that the rumors that she walk…

Liveblogging “The Bachelorette” On June 7, 2010

Last week on “The Bachelorette,” Craig, the guy with the Dylan McKay-hair and the personality of every ’80s movie villain, was sent packing after he antagonized the weak-willed Weatherman. A few others were sent home too, but no one whose names I remember. All that matters is that ROBERTO REMAINS! So, who else will rock…
