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!
Leave it to Ashley "Build-A-Bear" Hebert to buck the system when it comes to wedding etiquette. Seriously, someone get this girl an Emily Post book stat! No, I'm being too hard on Ashley and her fiancé J.P. Rosenbaum. I should be applauding the Bachelorette pair for actually making it down the aisle given the curse that seems to plague all relationships born of the Bachelor franchise. Did you know that out of twenty-four seasons there have been twenty-one engagements that failed? I mean, yes, two of those engagements belonged to both Brad Womack and former flame Emily Maynard, but those odds aren't good! My math is bad…I realize that Emily's engagement to Brad doesn't factor in, but I feel like it is worth mentioning. Lots of failed relationships!
Of course, when Chris Harrison talks about the most dramatic rose ceremonies ever I never thought that he would try to orchestrate the most dramatic televised wedding ever. I don't know whether to be disgusted or proud for what will surely be Bachelor Pad style television. Slow clap, Mr. Harrison, slow clap.
Not surprisingly, ABC will air the fall wedding. “It will be filmed as a special, and Chris Harrison will host,” a source tells Life & Style. “I want it to be a big celebration,” reveals Ashley. “My dream is for it to be outside in a big open field, very down-to-earth.”
JP says, “I want to give her the wedding of her dreams and will be involved as much or as little as she wants.”
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.”
There are a lot of rumors swirling around Bachelorette land, and this week they have nothing to do with that overblown “love affair” between Emily Maynard’s front runner Arie Luyendyk Jr. and a producer from the show. Just like on the show, two media outlets are reporting that yes, Emily’s heart is, in fact, torn between two loves. However, they aren’t contestants…it’s her former fiance BachelorBrad Womack and the show’s host Chris Harrison. Oh drama!
HollywoodLife.com is reporting on a print article in this week’s Life & Style. The article claims Emily and Brad have been in contact since her season began, with a source close to Brad saying, “They call and text each other. They weren’t on good terms after their painful break-up, but Brad says they’re talking now, and it’s throwing him for a loop. It’s weird timing, but if anyone can understand what Emily is going through, it’s Brad.”
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.
Ali Fedotowsky‘s ex-fiancé Roberto Martinez is rumored to be the next Bachelor. With Roberto and his delicious dimples getting so much attention, is former Bachelor and Bachelorette star Ali also hoping for another chance? Returning to the show isn’t out of the question. Brad Womack recently gave it another try. He’s still single and now we’re stuck with the yawn-fest that is Emily Maynard, but he tried. Will Ali follow Brad’s example and return to the show?
“I don’t think so – at least, not in the near future. I think it’s way too soon for something like that. So not right now, no,” she tells Wetpaint. So, that’s a no to the Bachelorette (for now). Ali‘s single and ready to mingle though!! Ali says, “I’m single right now. I’ve actually been single this entire time, despite what you may have heard! I’ve been on one or two semi-dates…I’m not even sure you would call them actual dates. But I’m ready. I’m ready!”
