Arie Luyendyk Jr

Our favorite reality TV stars can’t get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite photos from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!
Above: Real Housewives of Miami star Lisa Hochstein tweeted, "I beat @adrianathereal to the tweet #sensa fashion show @MarysolPatton hope she doesn't punch me #rhom #funkshion."
Below you’ll find Twitter pics from Bethenny Frankel, Farrah Abraham, Karent Sierra, Kylie Jenner, Nicole Murphy, Tamra BarneyNeNe Leakes, and more!

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!


The next Bachelor is Sean Lowe!

Chris Harrison confirmed the news to SheKnows on the Primetime Emmy Awards red carpet last night. When asked whom Chris would like to see as the next Bachelorperhaps Sean, Chris answered, "Well, a little known secret, he has been chosen." 

While Roberto Martinez and Arie Luyendyk Jr. were also considered, all recent signs, rumors, and spoilers pointed towards Sean Lowe as the next Bachelor


Is Sean Lowe the next Bachelor? Well, apparently, he's the only "name" still in the running. 

On August 31st, Arie Luyendyk Jr. announced that he is pulling out of the race to be the next Bachelor. Arie tweeted, "The Bachelorette was an amazing experience but I will not continue with the Bachelor. Ultimately I realized my heart is tied to the race track and my career is my main priority. I'm looking forward to getting back on the track." 

As you can imagine, Arie's fans went crazy. I may have shed a tear myself. Seriously… the good looks… the kisses… the sense of humor… Arie would be an entertaining Bachelor. Did someone just mumble cough <but he's a player>? Eh, their standards haven't too high in recent years anyway. Case in point – Jake Pavelka and Brad Womack Part 2Arie responded to me his fans on Twitter, "Lots of encouraging remarks. Thank you for all the love, the future looks bright and you will see more of me soon enough. #LoveMyFans."

Just a few days later, on September 4th, Ryan Seacrest disclosed that Roberto Martinez will "definitely not" be the seventeenth Bachelor. The dimples are out too?! There's that tear again.

What else does Ryan have to say?


Move over Roberto Martinez! You too, Sean Lowe!

Arie Luyendyk Jr.‘s Daddy says Arie wants to be the next Bachelor. A unnamed source, who attended a recent IndyCar event in Ohio, overheard Arie Luyendyk Sr. talking about Arie’s hot passionate – oops, sorry, I was thinking about those kisses – desire to return to the show.

“I heard him say Arie is definitely interested in being the next Bachelor,” said the source. “He said if they ask him, he’d be thrilled.”


The Men Tell All, The Parade of Tools, The Reincarnation of the 3 Stooges… however you label it, it’s still the Bachelorette starring Emily Maynard <yawn> Two hours of video recaps and retells taped in front of one very reactive audience <SCREAMS!> makes me wish I drank wine.

Those 3 Stooges would be Kalon McMahon, Ryan Bowers, and Chris Bukowski. They were obviously the stars of the night, with a side dish of Sean Lowe <SCREAMS!>.

Chris Harrison welcomes us by asking, “Who here would finally like to see Emily find the love of her life?” Raising my hand! If it means she’ll go away, then, by all means, let’s get this woman hitched. Jef Holm and Arie Luyendyk, Jr.  are not there, but the men who escaped a lifetime of love few short months of happiness with Emily are. Yippee.

Sean is there! <SCREAMS!> Kalon is there! <BOO!> Seriously, the audience is so over the top.


This week on the Bachelorette, Emily Maynard visits the hometowns of the final four suckers for a pretty blonde – Chris Bukowski, Jef Holm, Arie Luyendyk, Jr., and Sean Lowe.  Matching the rest of the season, it’s one of the most uneventful hometown episodes ever.  There are the standard meets and greets, uneaten dinners, one-on-one grilling sessions, and claims of love.  Emily’s conversations mostly fall flat, as she’s seriously lacking personality.  Yet, as always, the families are completely willing to accept Emily into their lives after spending just two hours with her.

Before she begins the visits, Emily heads home to Charlotte to see Ricki.  While she’s there, she thinks about the final four men.  According to Emily:

Chris is sweet and open. Jef has the edge that Emily looks for in a guy, and she feels comfortable with him. Emily felt an immediate connection with Arie.  He brings fun and excitement into her life.  (And he’s a really good kisser.)  Sean makes Emily feel safe. Sean is “perfect.”


Last week on the Bachelorette, Emily Maynard said goodbye to Travis Pope (egg guy) and Ryan Bowers (sweet talker) in Croatia.  This week, Emily wants us to believe she handles her own luggage as she and the remaining suckers suitors head to Prague.  Chris Harrison meets the men in Prague to remind them this is the the last set of dates before the hometown dates.  Also, he explains how this week is going to go down.  There will be three one-on-one dates and one group date.  There will be a rose up for grabs on the group date but not on the one-on-one dates.

The six remaining bachelors are Arie Luyendyk Jr., John Wolfner, Chris Bukowski, Doug Clerget, Jef Holm, and Sean Lowe.  The first date goes to Arie.  The date card reads, “Let’s Czech out Prague together.”  Emily’s date outfit is interesting – knee-high boots, Ricki’s bedazzled shorts, button up shirt that she forgot to finish buttoning, and a suit jacket.  Out of the blue, Emily lets us know she knows something about Arie but he doesn’t know she knows. Very soon after this revelation it’s painfully obvious that Emily is going to resort to passive aggressive hints for most of the date rather than talking to Arie about what she knows.  Very mature, Emily.
