Bachelorette

Desiree Hartsock at The Grove

Apparently ABC can only afford one Bachelor-franchise proof of success wedding at a time folks! And the first couple to get engaged is the first couple that gets to walk down the fantasy-rose-strewn televised aisle

Earlier this week we announced that Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici's wedding was going to be sending moving Bachelor lovestory montages into our television screens very soon. But there's another franchise star looking to get a made-for-TV wedding as well! Desiree Hartsock, otherwise known as the least popular Bachelorette ever, was angling to get her own nuptials to Chris Siegfried on the TeeVee when she was told, not so fast! 

Desiree wasn’t originally on board with the idea of having a TV wedding, but after she thought about it, she realized that this was the perfect opportunity to launch her dream career as a bridal designer,” an source reveals to Life & Style. Oh – yes why not use your wedding not only to celebrate the love of your life but for an ulterior motive to launch your career. Aaahhh…love in the land of the famewhores!

Bachelorette” star Emily Maynard

Every once in a while, I have to give credit where credit is due when it comes to the reality TV stars I love to hate. I really (really, really) thought Emily Maynard would do everything in her power to remain in the spotlight following her stint as the Bachelorette. Much to my surprise – not so much!

It's been a full year since Emily and Jef Holm ended their engagement – can you believe it? – and nearly ten months since Emily gave Reality Tea anything to snark on.  These days, Emily appears to be content spending time with her daughter, Ricki, and a new mystery man, as well as designing and blogging.

Does anyone watch reality competitions anymore?  Sure, we love some housewives drama and hip hop craziness, but is anyone enjoying singing contests or dating situations?

I think y'all know what know what I'm getting at here…the ratings for shows like The Voice, Bachelorette, and America's Got Talent are dismal compared to past seasons.  Maybe everyone's summer is busier and more intense.  Perhaps, dare I say, there isn't enough time to be bothered with these seasonal fillers.  Say it isn't so!

Oh Ali Fedotowsky…I promise we won't forget you were once the Bachelorette many seasons ago.  How could we?  You pop up every time anything Bachelor or Bachelorette related happens.  A new season?  Tell us your thoughts!  A bitter break-up?  You can relate to how hard it is to make a fauxmance work in the public eye.  A former contestant reunion?  You'll be tweeting about it (and seriously, don't stop doing that–I love it!).

In all seriousness, I think Ali is precious, and kudos to her for extending her fifteen minutes from the franchise.  Now, Ali's sharing her thoughts on Desiree Hartsock (she can rap, y'all!  Watch below!) and sharing some behind-the-scenes knowledge that only a Bachelorette would know.

Hello out there?  Are you watching reality shows or are you outside enjoying the beginning of summer?  I like to think I've found the perfect balance of both, but it seems we all need to step up our game a bit and show some love to old faithfuls.

Unfortunately, Monday night's shows didn't fare well in the ratings race.  Desiree Hartsock's quest for love began on the Bachelorette, but a lot less people tuned in to watch her pass out roses than in seasons past.  Likewise, viewers for The Voice are on a steady decline.

Who doesn't love to watch strangers meet, get whisked off to exotic locales, fall in love and find fame get married?  It's a tried and true formula, and it almost always works…the fifteen minutes of fame, of course–not the marriage.

ABC's new Bachelorette is hoping that the show's odds are in her favor (or not in her favor…whichever makes her more likely to find a guy she actually likes) after failing to find love with Bachelor Sean Lowe.  Desiree Hartsock, like all the other true believers before her, still thinks that the process can work.  Sure.

Speaking of finding love, the shows' host, the dapper Chris Harrison, has apparently done just that.  And not with me.  Curses!

DESIREE HARTSOCK

With just over a week until the premiere of season nine of the Bachelorette, ABC has released the photos and bios of the 25 bachelors vying for Desiree Hartsock's heart! 

According to ABC's press release, Desiree, 27, longs to find a love like the one her parents share. "Married for 35 years, they've always supported and appreciated one another. Their values helped guide Desiree to become an industrious, passionate, and creative woman who is working hard to make her dreams come true." 

"This spunky, athletic, and artistic woman is eagerly looking for a life filled with spontaneity, love, and laughter. And Desiree is positive, after falling in love [with Sean Lowe] on the Bachelor, that she can find her soul mate on the Bachelorette."

Desiree Hartsock's season of the Bachelorette premieres in less than one month, and I, for one, cannot wait. 

Two reasons: I much prefer the Bachelorette over the Bachelor. A house full of laid-back men is much more entertaining to me than a house full of catty women. Also, Emily Maynard made my head pound, so I feel gypped out of a season. 

In a recent interview with People, Desiree talks about her parent's marriage, shares what she looks for in a partner, and touches on that very first night. 

Desiree longs to find a love like the one her parents share. "My parents have been together for 40 years and married for 35," Desiree shares. "My dad has her back no matter what, and she's so affectionate to him. They act like they are 16."
