Last night on the season finale of “The Bachelor,” Brad Womack chose Emily Maynard, the single mom from Charlotte, N.C. who’s tragic story of love and loss literally brought tears to my eyes each and every time she told it. I don’t know if it was how perfectly put together without looking cheesy (like bachelorettes so easily do) she always was, OR the fact that she was a single mom, but I was rooting for Emily from the beginning. Sure, the fact that she seemed closed off and dull concerned me, but the old producer (Bachelor producer, in fact) knew that there HAD to be more. That this guy could ...Read More
Want to know The Reality of Reality Television? Check out the interview I did with my new favorite website Breezy Mama for the low down on what goes on behind the scenes, the drama, the controversy, and the ins and outs of actually getting cast on one of these nutty shows!
Sure, I could blog about the woman today at Babies R Us who said “Ooh-ew” when Baby-Ko sneezed in her direction… or I could talk about the advice I gave to my Grandmother regarding her love life… or I could talk about a 52 year old contestant named Yoko on “American Gladiators” who got her ass kicked by Crush and will need more then just a bone density test the next time she sees her doctor…. BUT NO. I’m not going to talk about any of that. WHY? WHY?? Because it was the season finale of “The Bachelorette” and was as delicious as the meatloaf that I made for dinner. ...Read More
Okay, after tonight I promise not to blog about “The Bachelorette.” Wait. Take that back. I can’t promise because there is still the final episode, but I will at least make a solid attempt. Let me start by saying that I had hoped that Graham would make a dramatic appearance …. Deanna would walk on the beach, under the sunset, after her dates with Jeremy, Jason, and Jesse (hi, all J’s…), and she would say that she can’t stop thinking about him (I sure couldn’t) and wants him back. But NO. She got over it fast and rightfully so. She had fantastic and fun dates with Jason and ...Read More
To my loyal readers (Mom), I would like to make something abundantly clear: While I thoroughly enjoyed last night’s episode of “The Bachelorette,” it is most certainly NOT my favorite Monday night program. Oh, no. “The Bachelorette” is ALWAYS watched on DVR at the end of the evening, after T-Ko has once again, dominated the remote control and watched his share of “Cops” and “Girls Gone Wild” type programming AND of course, “AMERICAN GLADIATORS” (the best show in spandex on TV). WHY? Why you ask do we watch American Gladiators, the best 80’s revival show EVER??? Well, first and foremost, T-Ko works on the show. Second, his paycheck allows for ...Read More
I am ashamed to admit it, but I am hooked on this season’s “Bachelorette” (ABC). I usually cringe watching dating shows especially since I’ve worked behind the scenes on some of them. But tonight, I found myself utterly enthralled and almost on the verge of tears…. Okay, quick recap: Deanna (the bachelorette) is down to 4 guys. Her favorite of the 4 is Graham, the hottest hottie of the bunch. Despite his gorgeousness, Deanna’s been skeptical about him; he’s been “holding back” and has had a hard time opening up. He’s that guy that we all have loved before- the guy where the chemistry is undeniable and ...Read More
