The Bachelorette’s 5th season ended tonight with a normal ending, which is somewhat of a shocker nowadays. Jillian Harris ended up picking Ed Swiderski, an IT consultant from Michigan. She also accepted his proposal.
The finale however had a twist that involved previously eliminated contestant, Reid Rosenthal, returning to propose to Jillian. Jillian pretended to be confused before eventually turning Reid down.
Kiptyn was the first to get the bad news from Jillian, and is also heavily rumored to be the new bachelor. Congrats to Jillian and Ed, or should be wait until the After The Rose show before we start congratulating?
Also, the rumors that Ed came on the show with a girlfriend have never been substantiated, so we have no reason to believe Ed was two-timing Jillian as of today. Actually love Ed and Jillian together, so I hope it works out for them.
TELL US – DO YOU THINK JILLIAN MADE THE RIGHT CHOICE?
We reported 2 days ago that Kate Gosselin had finally taken off her weding ring, since filing for divorce from Jon over a month ago. Well evidently, things have since changed. Kate has apparently decided she needs some more smypathy from the general public, so the ring is back on.
UsWeeklyreports the Jon & Kate Plus 8 momwore her wedding ring again this Saturday while playing with her eight kids at her family’s $1.1 million home in Wernersville, Pa.
Not sure what Kate’s trying to sell, but I’m not buying. This seems like a transparent and pathetic attempt at garnering public sympathy. No woman with self respect would continue to wear their wedding ring in public after her husband’s whorish ways have been well documented and photographed. So please Kate, take off your wedding ring and get real.
The 2nd runner up of VH1′sDaisy of Love is now speaking out about his time on the show in a new interview with VH1. Reality show alum, David Amerman aka 12 Pack, talks about his heartbreak, feelings for Daisy and his alleged bromance with Flex.
A lot of people have also been wondering about the reunion show. Well as of today, it appears VH1 will not be taping a reunion show for either Daisy of Love or Charm School 3. Not sure what their reason is but I think most fans, including me, would have loved to see a reunion for both shows.
Below are excerpts from his new interview -
How was your time on the show?
I always have fun when I do these shows, but his one by far beat the other two out. With I Love New York, I was competing for a girl I wasn’t really into. It was my first time, so I was a little nervous. With I Love Money, everyday you thought you might get eliminated. I really had to chill and not piss people off. On this show it was more or less just a free for all and I was actually into the chick, so it was really a good time.
Obviously, because this was your second time on a dating show, people questioned your motivation. Even Daisy did.
Oh yeah. I really wanted to be there for sure. Why would I have gone on another dating show if I wasn’t into the girl? It would have just been obvious I wasn’t into her. There’s plenty of television shows out there. I mean, I could have done I Love Money 3, or 2 or 4 or any of that stuff. But I really liked Daisy a lot. I felt like it was a good shot to go out and compete for a girl that I actually was into. I figured worse case scenario, I don’t get the girl in the end.
At what point did Daisy’s suspicions ease?
Maybe by the third episode, it kind of got to the point where I had answered her question already. I said, “If you don’t believe me and you want to send me home for that, go ahead. But if you want to see why I’m really here and give it a shot, let me stay.” And she went for option B. It’s cool because me and her are cool now, and whenever she’s in town she’ll give me a call, or if I hear something in the news about her I’ll make sure she’s still doing OK. So we’re cool.
Daisy of Love’sTJ Markiewicz aka Flex was the final contestant to be eliminated from the show’s finale last night. Daisy De LaHoya chose rocker/heart breaker, London, whom she had earlier eliminated to be her “Daisy of Love.”
In a new interview with VH1, Flex talks about his time on the show, not being that into Daisy, plus his bromance with 12 Pack. Off topic, why is he wearing so much eyeliner in the above photo?
Below are some excerpts from his new interview -
You didn’t seem too broken up about not being chosen by Daisy.
I had feelings for her but I didn’t like her-like her like that. We didn’t have the connection that she had with London, so I knew we weren’t meant for each other.
Were you insincere when you said how much you liked her?
When you’re in the moment, you say how you feel, I guess. There was a lot of alcohol involved (laughs). She was the only girl in a house of 20 guys. I was sincere when I said I had feelings for her, and I thought she was a great girl. But toward the end, after she brought London back, it was just like, OK. Obviously we know who’s going to win because she had that extreme crush on him in the beginning. The show was over when he walked back through the door.
Is there anything to be said for you just playing the game?
Everybody wants to win, but for me it wasn’t a game. I went there seeing if we had a chance. She’s a cool chick. I had no baggage. I didn’t have a girlfriend or anything that would have dragged me down. Some of the other guys had kids or girlfriends or had been married and divorced, but not me. I was 22, I had a job, I was successful, so I basically wanted to try something new.
So, just to be sure, when you said, “I’m falling in love with you,” you just chalk that up to being in the moment?
Well…yeah. I knew that London and her would not make a good couple. It’s hard to explain because you know that someone isn’t right for her, and even though she doesn’t like you, you still don’t want her to make a bad decision. I knew I would be a better fit for her than London. I knew I could take care of her and not disrespect her like the way she’s been disrespected in the past.
So you don’t think it’ll last with London?
No, I don’t think it’s going to last at all. But I wish them the best.
The Bachelorette finale is tonight! And there are a lot of speculations at to what will happen. Who will Jillian Harris pick? Do not read further if you do not want to know any spoilers.
Unlike last season, the producers of the show have done a pretty good job in keeping the finale results sealed. We however have some details on what will likely happen.
What is all but certain is that Kiptynwill not be the winner. He is heavily rumored to be the new bachelor.
Another certainty is that Reid will be coming back to the show. It seems he will be proposing to Jillian as well.
So that leaves us with Ed and Reid. Everything seems to be pointing to Reid not being the winner.
That leaves us with Ed. This is where the confusion comes in. Will Jillian pick Ed to be her man or will she pick no one?
A lot of the information as well as interviews Jillian has given points to her picking no one, and not being engaged. Then again this could be the producers playing a trick on us, as they tell her what she can and cannot say.
During all of her interviews before and during the show, Jillian has never mentioned being in a relationship or being engaged. This is very rare. The Bachelor(ettes) of the past shows always talked about being in love with the winner or being engaged. When asked again last week if she was engaged, Jillian said – “I can definitely say I am on top of the world right now and I can’t wait for Monday, so everybody can see why.”
She only says she’s happy with her decision. RealitySteve also has another theory. He believes with Reid and Ed proposing to her, she might decide to pick no one because she needs more time, leaving us with a cliff hanger until the After The Rose show.
TELL US – WHAT DO YOU THINK WILL HAPPEN TONIGHT? WHO ARE YOU ROOTING FOR?
Everything seems to be finally falling into place for Bachelor alum, Melissa Rycroft. Melissa’s life has made a complete 360 since being dumped publicly by her then fiance, Jason Mesnick, just months ago.
“Tye is my true love,” Melissa, 26, tells PEOPLE in its new issue. These days, Melissa harbors no hard feelings towards her ex, Jason, because the situation brought her to where she is today. “No disrespect [to Jason] at all, but that situation doesn’t compare to where I am now – engaged and happy. It’s a different feeling,” she says.
Tye, 28, also speaks out for the first time about their relationship, “The last six months have not been normal…But we wouldn’t change it because what we had to go through has allowed us to be where we are today. It’s been a blessing in disguise, and I don’t think either of us has ill feelings towards anyone.”
The happy couple will be appearing tomorrow, July 28th, on The Bachelorette: After The Final Rose. I’m certain Melissa has her reservations appearing on this show considering what happened the last time she was on it.
After being photographed with 22 year old girlfriend, Hailey Glassman, and having tabloid reporter, Kate Major, publicly announce their new “relationship,” while quitting her job last week, Jon Gosselin is now publicly breaking his silence.
“At this point … I’m single – per se,” he told PEOPLE this Saturday. “I’m just a regular guy who just wants to have friendship and good times. And I like meeting people.” Translation - I am single and ready to screw anything moving.
It seems Jon and Girlfriend #1, Hailey, have decided to put the breaks on their new romance. Jon says, “She doesn’t like this [craziness]. She loves me for who I am and not for what I do. We are going to chill out for a while and see where it takes us. I’m not looking for anyone.”
And what about Girlfriend #2, Kate? “We are just friends” says Jon.
Jon however wants us to know he has his priorities in order saying, “I’m just trying to concentrate on my family first, second my career. That’s what I have to do.” And will the kids be meeting any of his multiple girlfriends? “I don’t want to introduce anyone to my kids,” he says. “We just have to play it by ear. I don’t know what it’s like to be divorced.”
So you mean to tell me the big idiot Kate Major quit her job and all but ruined her career for nothing? Fortunately for Kate, she can always take solace in the good news that she should have zero problem winning the biggest dumbass of the year award. Her only other major competition is Hailey.
People are still buzzing about the season finale of Soapnet’sSouthern Belles: Lousiville, which revealed Jeff Stovall cheated on his fiance, Shea Johnson. To thicken the plot, the “other woman” just happened to be Louisville Judge, Katie King.
Katie had also appeared on previous episodes of the show due to cast member, Hadley, helping her with her campaign. The good folks at Springston blogspot (a blog about Louisville New & Politics) were able to get the above photo of Katie and Jeff. The picture was allegedly taken on July 10th during a birthday bash Katie threw for someone. Katie took down the pictures, but the Springston blogger was able to save a copy.
I wonder why Katie would take the pictures down if she had nothing to be ashamed of. And is it just me or does Katie look rather aged for being only 29 years old? Katie seems to be a rather controversial figure in the city of Louisville. There are rumors of drug use, as well as a supposed restraining order taken out against her by an ex boyfriend. Interesting.
There are also reports that Katie and Jeff are no longer together.
