Get ready to drink with the Men Tell All Drinking Game!

It’s about that time, y’all…

That week when we realize there’s no normal episode of The Bachelorette and we have to suffer through a Men Tell All and wait ANOTHER WEEK for the finale.

Ugh.

At least we will have Whaboom Guy and Lee to entertain us.  Read More »

The Case for DeMario {The Bachelorette}

This post may contain affiliate links. Read full disclosure policy here.

I’m playing Devil’s Advocate here to examine whether DeMario is as bad as we think…

It only took two episodes for the “villain” on this season of The Bachelorette to emerge. Unlike seasons past, though, this villain was revealed and removed swiftly thereafter.

While it remains to be seen if he actually stays gone (as we’ve seen in previews for tonight’s episode, he arrived back at the mansion to try to plead his case to Rachel), I’m guessing that he will.

But is that the right choice? Read More »

Rachel met the guys. Who made the best first impressions?

Gosh I, like, REALLY like Rachel. I think she may be my favorite Bachelorette since Jen Schefft!

So a shoutout to the producers for finally giving us a smart, charismatic woman who knows what she wants…to get engaged on reality television.

I will forgive the producers for starting the show at 9:00 PM, but only this once. Mama’s tired!!! Read More »

After that cliffhanger last week, The Bachelorette really needed to deliver. And it did.

Two sad break-ups that shocked me…

I honestly thought Chase was going to be her final guy. Shows what I know!

5 Reasons Why Robby Needs to Go {The Bachelorette}

JoJo narrowed the field down to four, but here’s why Robby needs to get sent home.

THE BACHELORETTE - Jo Jo Fletcher first stole America's heart on Ben Higgins season of "The Bachelor," where she charmed both Ben and Bachelor Nation with her bubbly personality and sweet, girl-next-door wit and spunk. Jo Jo embarks on her own journey to find love when she stars in the 12th edition of "The Bachelorette," which premieres on MONDAY, MAY 23 on the ABC Television Network. (ABC/Craig Sjodin) ROBBY

It’s not that I think JoJo should have kept one of the guys she sent home this week (James or Alex), but I just hate to think that she’s seriously considering Robby as a potential suitor.

Here are 6 Things That Annoyed Me From The Bachelorette last night…

JAMES T., ALEX, ROBBY, JOJO FLETCHER, LUKE

You know it’s time to reevaluate your life when you are dreading watching The Bachelorette.

Yet that was me last night at 7:55. Sitting on the couch, messing around on my phone and wishing I could just go upstairs to bed.

I even thought about just reading spoilers to see who JoJo chooses at the end.

But I didn’t. I persevered. I watched the damn two-hour show. Sure I fast-forwarded through multiple parts that I assume were lame (i.e. group date activities), but I made it through to the end. And I’m glad I did, even though I’m getting really annoyed with JoJo’s judgment.

JOJO FLETCHER

Watching two nights in a row of two-hour-long Bachelorette episodes feels like it qualifies as a part-time job. Thank God we have next week off!

Here are 10 Things You Need to Know about last night’s episode of The Bachelorette…

10. I have to hand it to Chad– faced with getting kicked off the show, he mans up and apologizes to the house. He promises that no one needs to worry about him getting violent. Evan doesn’t buy it, but I kinda do. Read More »

JAMES F., JORDAN, DANIEL

I always get a little weary looking ahead at these “Two Night Bachelorette Event!” weeks.

Four hours? Really? Must I?

But then the first episode starts and it’s clear that YES. I want this. Is four hours enough of The Chad? (That’s what I feel like he should be called.)

JoJo meets 26 of the most desperate eligible bachelors ABC’s producers could find!

I feel the need to preface this recap with a stern admonition for ABC…starting the show at 9:00 P.M.? On a Monday? Are you nuts?

Isn’t your target demographic moms?! WE ARE TIRED. WE WANT TO BE IN BED BY TEN BECAUSE OUR FREAKING KIDS WAKE US UP AT 6:00 A.M.!

Start the goddamn show at 8:00 or watch your ratings drop. (Yes, that’s a threat.) Read More »

And then there were three.

Anyone else feel like this season flew by? But at the same time has been torturously long? Just two more weeks until we find out which dude will be lucky enough to be Kaitlyn’s fiance for a cool six to eight months.

Here are the Top 10 Highlights, Questions, and Ruminations from last night’s The Bachelorette…

10. Ben called his date with Kaitlyn “the perfect day.” Immediately after they were chased by hungry goats. Read More »

This show is stressing me out!

I stopped watching, but I couldn’t help turning it on again. Nick or Shawn. Shawn or Nick. I can’t decide who I like better and who I want her to choose!

Plus we got to see a commercial for Bachelor in Paradise and now the theme song is stuck in my head, so thanks for that ABC. Read More »

So Kaitlyn Slept With Nick

So Kaitlyn slept with Nick on The Bachelorette last night, and it turned into A Big Thing.

(Yes I know I said I wasn’t watching The Bachelorette anymore but it was 8:00 and nothing else was on. It sucked me in.)

After ruminating on this issue overnight, I’ve come to this conclusion: the fact that Kaitlyn slept with Nick is probably the most normal thing she could have done in a highly abnormal setting.

I can’t believe we are already five episodes in. I feel so un-emotionally invested in this season. Does anyone else find Kaitlyn a bore?

I can barely name five of the guys that she’s into. Oh wait, I can name one guy…NICK VIALL.

Is this going to become the new “thing” for The Bachelor/ette— letting old contestants just show up if they want? (More of my thoughts on that later.)

I’m sorry, but I found this premiere episode to be a total snoozefest. And not just because it started at 9:00 P.M. and went til 11:00.

I didn’t even make it through the whole show. I went to bed at 10:00 and watched the rest of it in the morning. 

The first thing I want to say is I think it’s awful that they billed both Kaitlyn and Britt as The Bachelorette. I originally thought they were both going to duke it out for the guys throughout the entire season.  Read More »

No time to wallow in the sadness that Mad Men has ended, my friends. It’s time to move on to another of our favorite shows. Something with a little less “serious drama” and a little more “serious crazy.”

That’s right, it’s the premiere of The Bachelorette! And not just any Bachelorette…there are two ladies vying for the title.

I’m a little pissed, because I thought Chris Harrison meant that Britt and Kaitlyn were going to duke it out for the guys all season long. Turns out, the guys decide which lady stays in the first episode and they send the loser home. WTF. Read More »

Andi Dorfman and Josh Murray-- 10 Possible Reasons for Split

This post may contain affiliate links. Read full disclosure policy here.  
The official statement reads that Andi Dorfman and Josh Murray have simply parted ways, but will “continue to be great friends.”

So lame and so obviously untrue. What couple ever has a no-reason, no-fault split?!

Sigh. I guess there is no book deal like this in Andi’s future.

Here are some (slightly more scandalous) theories I have as to why Andi Dorfman and Josh Murray could possibly have split…

Oh, and props to my girl Claire Byrne for totally calling this breakup on Monday night, based on how vigorously Andi was rubbing Josh’s back during the live Bachelor premiere event. (I was too busy trying to figure out what Clare Crawley and Michelle Money were whispering about in the audience.) Read More »

The Bachelorette, Episode 1: Recap

Well at least for this season of The Bachelorette we don’t have to listen to Emily Maynard talking idiotically through a mouth stuffed with fake teeth that don’t fit right. I’m pretty confident that Desiree has her own teeth.

Also, she seems way smarter than Emily. Hopefully smart enough to realize that you always get rid of the magician. He’s just going to end up being a weirdo. We shall see, I guess! Let’s get right into this Bachelorette recap and hand out some roses! Read More »
