Oh Chris Harrison…I have no doubt that you are the most moral, most ethical, most handsome host of any reality debacle, and, as such, any lawsuit against anything with which you may be remotely involved, needs to be escorted to a limo and ugly cry all the way back to the airport.
As you all have heard, there is a suit pending against the most dramatic show ever for never hiring minority applicants. Looking back over past seasons, they may actually be on to something! However, Bachelor producers are no longer staying mum about the accusations according to wetpaint.com.
Warner Horizon, the parent company of the modern day
fame whore love connection, released a statement citing, “This complaint is baseless and without merit. We have had various participants of color throughout the series’ history, and the producers have been consistently — and publicly — vocal about seeking diverse candidates for both programs.” The statement goes on to say that producers will “continue to seek out participants of color” for the franchise.

In the past, a few minority members have been interspersed in the dating pool. That said, there has never been a Bachelor or Bachelorette of color. Of course, producers seem to have gotten lazy in recent seasons and are no longer vetting new “stars” for the show. We all know it’s the next-to-last contestant to be picked who will likely have more fame than the “winner” as they will be starring (and I use that term loosely!) in the following season. Perhaps, the show needs to go back to the good ol’ days of introducing desperate unknowns looking for love, instead of relying on the poor chap or lady whose heart was broken a mere season ago.
In happier Bachelor news, it seems that the perky Ashley Hebert and her final rose J.P. Rosenbaum are getting their guest list together. In an interview with HollywoodLife.com, Ashley reveals that her former reality flame and everyone’s favorite monochromatic mop head Ben Flajnik will likely be in attendance at the couple’s nuptials. By his side will be his model fiancé Courtney Robertson.
Ashley asserts, “We’ll probably invite [Ben].” Her beau pipes in, “Yeah, definitely,” and adds, “I text him every couple of weeks just to see how he’s doing.” That’s a totally normal thing to do for the dude who got down on one knee and proposed to his girlfriend mere minutes before he did.
While the wedding plans are still being made, the couple has one thing set in stone…a move to New Jersey. Ashley admits, “I’m excited to move out to the burbs. I’m ready to get out of the city.” I am sure the city feels the same.
DO YOU THINK THE LAWSUIT HAS ANY MERIT? WOULD YOU INVITE YOUR EX-ALMOST FIANCE TO YOUR WEDDING?
