Bachelor

The racial discrimination lawsuit against the Bachelor and Bachelorette has been dismissed by a judge. Christopher Johnson and Nathaniel Claybrooks claimed racial discrimination after they auditioned for the show in April. As a result, they filed a class action lawsuit against ABC, Warner Horizon Television, Next Entertainment, NZK Productions, and creator Mike Fleiss

Christopher and Nathaniel drew attention to the fact that neither show has ever featured a person of color and the majority of contestants vying for roses have been white. The pair's lawyers argued that the producers of the Bachelor needed to respect the Civil Rights Act and other anti-discrimination laws. In addition, Christopher and Nathaniel wished to force the Bachelor to have persons of color as finalists.

Judge Aleta Trauger ruled in favor of ABC and granted their motion to dismiss the lawsuit.

"The Shows' casting decisions are part and parcel of the Shows' creative content, which the plaintiffs seek to reform. That is plainly an attempt to regulate the content of the Shows, which the First Amendment forbids," Judge Trauger ruled. "In this respect, casting and the resulting work of entertainment are inseparable and must both be protected to ensure that the producers' freedom of speech is not abridged."

No one ever likes to admit when they're wrong.  It's humbling and very embarrassing…even more so when you're eating crow about the Bachelor franchise.  Until I fell for quirky One F Jef Holm on the Bachelorette finale, I was a tried and true Arie Luyendyk Jr. fan.  In fact, I loved that Emily Maynard chose Jef because that meant that Arie was still on the market.  In addition to reality television, I am also somewhat of a racing fanatic.  Weird, I know.  Since Carl Edwards is married, I hung all of my hopes on Arie.

Alas, those hopes have been dashed…along with my once Pollyanna-esque views that Arie was a happy-go-lucky, love struck dude who enjoyed awkwardly intense make-out sessions.  It turns out my friend (a Sean Lowe fan, go figure) tried to warn me that Arie was just another player, and it seems she was right.  Why else would he be caught sucking face with fame harlot Courtney Robertson less than a week after she was able to shake former fiance Ben Flajnik?  At least she upgraded in the hair department!

Bachelor couple Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney Mesnick are breaking up (oops, habit!) expecting their first baby!

There aren't too many Bachelor success stories to be told, but Jason and Molly are one of the few couples who beat the odds. Sure, Jason initially proposed to Melissa Rycroft. He later had doubts and reunited with Molly. Jason and Molly are happy. Melissa and her husband Tye are happy. So… does it really matter now? Absolutely not. 

Jason and Molly faced some extremely harsh criticism following their reunion, yet they managed to remain together. Jason and Molly wed in February 2010. They should write an e-book or something, How to Survive The Bachelor Media S**t Storm For Dummies. I digress. Baby news! “Our family is getting a little bit bigger!” Molly revealed to People magazine. “I’m into my second trimester and I feel really good.”

Courtney Robertson and Ben Flajnik called off their engagement last week. I doubt anyone was truly shocked, as their relationship was doomed from the start. The majority of Bachelor fans never warmed up to Courtney's man-eating ways, and they ridiculed Ben for choosing her. Also, Ben's hair is just icky. 
 
All alone now, Courtney opens up about the demise of their relationship. Courtney tells Wetpaint Entertainment that she's sad but okay. “I’ve been really surprised by all the support and the nice things people have said," Courtney says. "It means a lot to me.” 
 
Courtney adds, “More than anything, I want people to know there wasn’t some huge fight or one specific thing that led to it. There’s really no story to tell other than the fact that it just wasn’t working out.”

Put on your surprised face. Another Bachelor couple bites the dust! 

Season 16 Bachelor Ben Flajnik and Courtney Robertson have called it quits after nine months together. The couple, who recently attempted to play house by moving in together, confirmed the demise of their relationship to In Touch.

Their official statement, "After meeting over a year ago, we have decided to end our romantic relationship. The ups and downs weighed heavily on us both and ultimately we started to grow apart because of the distance, time apart, and our need to focus on our respective careers. We have nothing but the utmost respect for each other, and both feel this is the right decision.  We continue to remain friends and will support each other in future endeavors. Thanks to everyone for your love and support, it's been quite a ride."

Aww, there he is.. our new Bachelor holding a rose. ABC officially announced Sean Lowe as the star of The Bachelor Season 17 earlier this week! You know, right after Chris Harrison spilled the beans at the Emmy Awards. We met Sean on the Bachelorette, of course, but that season was all about Emily Maynard

Now, Sean is the star and in charge of the roses. Sean, 28, is an entrepreneur from Dallas, Texas. Southern values, family, and faith are very important to Sean. In his free time, Sean enjoys camping, wakeboarding, dancing, outdoor activities, and attending concerts.

The ABC press release tells us what Sean is looking for as the Bachelor: "He wants to be the patriarch of a family that is centered on faith, love and, laughter. He is eager to be a supportive husband that will encourage his wife to chase her dreams, as well as someone who she can rely on to help her through good and bad times. Quite simply, he is looking for his best friend. Sean also wants a big family and would love to adopt a child along with having his own – just so long as he can pass along the values he was taught to his kids."

Taping is already underway for Sean's season, which will begin airing in January 2013. And, ABC must be eager to get this party started, because they have already released the pictures and first names of the 24 "new to us" women that will be competing for Sean's final rose (and that sweet Neil Lane rock). Undoubtedly, Sean's final rose will bring us the most romantic rose ceremony ever. Like, ever.. ever. I digress.. anyway, this information has been released at least three months earlier than normal. Their ages, hometowns, and occupations were not listed, however. In addition to the new faces, there are two familiar faces! Enjoy!

Also, check out  the Sean Lowe is The Next Bachelor video at the end. It's hilarious!

I'm crossing my fingers that Bachelorette Emily Maynard and her Prince Charming One F Jef Holm are actually going to make it work.  I mean, if those crazy kids can make, any member of the Bachelor franchise stands a fighting chance, right?  RIGHT?  Next…

The couple is still vehemently denying the rumors that Emily cheated via inappropriate texts.  I'll admit, I am still skeptical about these rumors.  I realize the source is Jef's misguided brother which gives the gossip a ton of credibility, but I just don't seem Emily as a girl who would get her kicks from receiving lurid texts.  Sending, maybe, but receiving?  That's just tacky.  The pair has revamped their denial, switching it up from "we are super duper in love and perfect and only have eyes for each other" to a much more relatable "we're not perfect, but we make it work."  It's a more plausible excuse at least…
