In a shocking Bachelor Pad twist, Holly Durst andBlake Julian not only fell in love on the show, but they actually got married! Bachelor Pad is like a modern-day (read, classless and trashy) version of Circus of the Stars – it’s all fun and games of the (not so) famous. Bachelor Pad, compared toThe Bachelorette, is less about romantic dates and amazing proposals and more about selling each other and yourself out to get to the cash prize. Holly Durst, winner of season 2 of Bachelor Pad, got both – a romantic proposal and the cash prize.
Holly and Blake got married on June 2nd in South Carolina. Holly talks to Cupid’s Pulse about the very special day and the honeymoon that followed. Holly is settling right into her new life. She says, “I’m so happy! I love married life. It’s just the best!”
Bachelor Pad returns on July 23 on ABC! Which The Bachelor and The Bachelorette rejects will get a second (third, fourth, fifth) chance at finding true love on reality TV? Ha, only if you’re Holly Durst and Blake Julian. More than likely, this ego-heavy cast is more interested in hooking up and collecting the cash prize of $250,000. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. I like my TV to be dirty and not too deep.
New twist this season – six hand-selected super fans of the franchise will join the Bachelor Pad fun. Fresh meat!!
Perhaps one of the most self-absorbed contestants is none other than Emily Maynard‘s pariah Kalon McMahon. Kalon, the luxury brand consultant whose preferred mode of transportation is a helicopter, got himself kicked to the curb this week after referring to Emily’s daughter as budget-basement baggage. The comment brought out Emily’s West Virginia hood rat backwoods side, which is the most exciting thing to happen all season. If Kalon can bring personality out of Emily, I’m all for his presence on the Bachelor Pad!
Ladies, just when you thought you could quitThe Bachelor after the mess that was the Ben Flajnik season, ABC throws this in: hottie Roberto Martinez is up for consideration for an upcoming season!
Roberto, who broke up with Ali Fetodowskyafter being engaged to her for about two years is “definitely being considered” but a source tells People magazine that before you get too excited, they also want to see who Emily dumps on this season of The Bachelorette. But there’s no doubt a Roberto season would be a hit. “Obviously there’s a lot about Roberto that is appealing.”
Nobody goes on Bachelor Pad to fall in love and meet their soul mate. Nope, they show up to win money. Well sometimes things don’t go as planned, because this Saturday Bachelor Pad alums Holly Durst and Blake Julian tied the knot!
The couple said “I do” in front of 115 guests at the The Cliffs country club in South Carolina. Holly wore an Alfred Angelo gown, which according to Us Weekly featured: “A dramatic sweetheart neckline, draped bodice (which she customized with a sash), tufted skirt and a sweep train.”
“I couldn’t be happier with my Alfred Angelo wedding dress! It was really hard to choose because there were so many beautiful choices, but I knew I found my dream dress the moment I put it on!,” Holly gushed.
It’s your daily dose of Bachelorette with a heaping side of Harrison…add some Bachelor Pad for dessert sprinkled with just the right amount of hook ups, implants, and shame. Let’s dig in, shall we?
The always lovely and good-natured Chris Harrison, host of all three train wrecks love quests, opened up to The Huffington Post about his favorite couples through the years. He reveals, “Trista and Ryan [Sutter] were just lightning in a bottle. I don’t know if we’ll ever capture anything like that again. That one will always stand out.” The couple was the first of the franchise to actually wed (on television, of course), and now they have two children together.
Another of Chris’ favorite love birds were our current Bachelorette Emily Maynard and two-time BachelorBrad Womack. He tells the site, “I felt like the two of them were meant to be and it was gonna work. When they broke up, I was really sad.” Well, you certainly know if you’re tuning into this season that Em has stolen Chris Harrison’s heart along with those of her suitors.
“Everybody’s had this appetite for her,” Chris continues. “She’s so contagious. You just want to care for her, you want to root for her, you want her to do well, and that really makes for a perfect Bachelorette. When her name came up [to be the next Bachelorette], we started bantering about and it was a unanimous home run. It’s very rare that it’s unanimous.”
“I think Emily is adorable, and I think she’s going to do a great job. I hope she finds love. I don’t know her personally but I think she’s the cutest thing in the world.”
Holly strongly believes in finding love on reality TV, since she’s set to marry her Bachelor Pad co-star Blake Julian next month. She tells Rumor Fix: “I found love on the show, and I believe in the whole system. No matter who you end up with, know it was your choice and no one else’s. Love that man with all that you are and you will truly find your happiness! Good Luck.”
Kasey Kahl will guard and protect your heart and get arrested doing it! Ok, so actually the former Bachelor Pad star got arrested for Drunk and Disorderly Conduct, but close enough!
TMZ reports that Kasey was arrested Sunday morning in Fresno, CA outside of Club Habanos for being drunk and disorderly while he was hanging out with friends. His mugshot, in which he actually looks nice, is below!
Kasey’s rep explains it was no big deal, “Kasey and his friends were hanging out outside of the club where police officers allegedly thought they were being too loud. Kasey, along with a couple friends, were taken to the police station, but were released a couple hours later. No charges were or have been filed against him.”
“Kasey was extremely respectful and very cooperative with the police officers despite the situation, even having a good laugh because of his model-esque mugshot. The police officers noted that it was the prettiest mugshot they’ve ever seen come into their station.” Well, I’m glad it wasn’t a DUI.
In other Kasey news, the two-time reality show loser at love will be appearing on Vh1′s Relationship Rehab with his ex-girlfriendVienna Girardi. Like people want to watch anymore of these two on television. But I digress, apparently Relationship Rehab is similar to Celebrity Rehab except it deals with well, you know, relationships instead of drugs and alcohol. Also, different? NoDr. Drew — instead viewers get Dr. Jenn Berman.
Apparently, there’s already been the prerequisite insufferable Vienna-Kasey drama because TMZ is reporting Vienna stormed off the set during a therapy session.
So why does Kasey need to appear on the show other than a paycheck and a desire for the spotlight? “I’m just a hopeless romantic cheese ball who wants to be happy.” Oh, dear…
