Jillian Harris

The Bachelorette’s Jillian Harris finally did what everyone had been wanting for the past couple of weeks – Sent Wes Home! Jillian speaks out on the whole Wes issue in her new blog about the show. She admits she kept Wes for “way too long.” For some strange reason, she still doubts Wes actually had a girlfriend – sighs.

“So … Wes! I know I kept him for WAY too long. I FULLY admit this. Someone on here wrote the truest way to explain it — it’s like you’re watching a horror movie that you starred in … And all your friends are yelling at you, “He’s behind you! He’s behind you!” Ha. There are so many ways to explain my connection with Wes. I cringe to admit this, but I truly was blinded by many of Wes’s “good qualities” for the better half of his stay that I refused to see all the red flags (and there were a lot of them!).

I still don’t know if Wes had a girlfriend, but I do think Wes was there for his career. Along the way, we did build a friendship but his presence on the show was a disservice to both of us. It made me look like a fool and like I had bad judge of character, and it made him look like someone he is not. I guess this is what you lay out on the line when you sign up for something like this, right? Ultimately, you are all still entitled to your opinion, but I am a huge supporter of forgiveness and I hope you can give Wes a break and lay this one to rest.”

It’s good to see her admit her bad choice. I am however surprised she still doubts he had a girlfriend. Wes’s “girlfriend” Laurel Kagay spoke out last week defending Wes and claiming they were just friends.

Jake also spoke out on the issue and even said Wes and Laurel are still dating. I still choose to believe Jake on this one. Someone needs to tell Wes that he can pretty much kiss his country music career goodbye. No one is going so support a jerk. He has officially taken the crown of the biggest jerk title from Jason Mesnick.

TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON WES?

The-Bachelorette-Jake-Pavelka

The Bachelorette’s Jake Pavelka is swinging back at Wes and his “girlfriend” Laurel. We posted a story yesterday with Laurel coming to Wes’s defense, claiming she was not dating Wes during the show, and is currently not dating him. I said yesterday that I wasn’t buying her story, and well Jake seems to agree.

Jake spoke to People today, and says he stands by his story of Wes dating Laurel during filming. Not only that, Jake goes on to say Wes and Laurel are still together! Jake claims they are both in cahoots with duping Jillian Harris. Some excerpts from this interview are below -

Why did you come back?
A producer called me to see if I was doing okay because I took leaving hard and I broke down. [I said,] “I need to tell her some things. Any way I could talk to her again?” I ran through it and they made it happen. I was lying in bed every morning going, “I screwed up. I should have told her before I left.” I wanted to come back because I had information she needed to make the best decisions about the remaining guys and to be there for her. Now I sleep easy at night.

PEOPLE spoke to Laurel and she denied being together during taping. Do you stand by what you claimed, that Wes said he had a girlfriend?
I don’t believe it. I know it. Without a shadow of a doubt, he and Laurel were together. They’re still together. It’s an act and Laurel was in cahoots with him. They had an agreement to put their relationship on the back-burner so he could go on and sell CDs. His biggest fear was making it far enough to go on overnight dates because that wasn’t okay with Laurel. Evidently she cleared [him] to kiss. I’m a God-fearing man and if I am mistaken or he didn’t tell me that, God can strike me down with lightning right now.

Are you there?
Yeah. Still here! We had multiple conversations. He confided with me. He told me he loved [Laurel]. He said, “I’m going to break her heart. I’m going to bow out when the time is right.” This stuff came out of his mouth.

It now seems the whole Wes girlfriend mystery has finally been solved or has it? Coming out in Wes’s defense today is the alleged girlfriend mentioned on this week’s episode of The Bachelorette.

Laurel Kagay spoke out to People claiming Jillian Harris has nothing to worry about when it comes to Wes two timing her. Laurel claims to have been in shock when she heared her name mentioned during the last episode. “I was like, ‘What?’” Laurel, 29, states. “There was this pause before he said my name — and then he said it quite a few times.”

Laurel, owner of Peach Body Boutique in Austin, Tex., however insists she and Wes are just friends: “I’m absolutely not with Wes, nor would I be if he were going on a show to be with another girl,” she says. “That’s absolutely crazy.”

So why did both Jake and Tanner mention Wes having a girlfriend? “And I think Wes did say something about his ex-girlfriend. Maybe he said he still cares about me or whatever. Maybe he talked a little too much about me, and Jake just blew that into something else.” However, Laurel admits, “We are really good friends and we do go out to lunch together, so I could see how people could think we’re together.” Not sure I’m buying this.

Oh but there’s more to Laurel. She has had her fair share of Bachelors as she is also linked to another famous name in The Bachelor franchise – Brad Womack, you know the bachelor who chose no one on his season finale. According to Laurel, they dated for four years.

She has also dated Collin Evans, who was briefly a contender on The Bachelorette season starring Jen Schefft.

I’m not buying this whole we were just friends thing. Wes seems like the slimey type and I think Jillian should have sent him packing. I believe Jake on this one and do believe Wes came on the show only for the fame because he actually admitted to that on a past episode. So I do not doubt for one second that he was dating this Laurel person while pretending to be there for Jillian. This seems to be his lame attempt to save his so called career as a country singer.

TELL US – DO YOU THINK JILLIAN SHOULD HAVE SENT WES PACKING?

Jillian Harris continues her search for true love tonight on The Bachelorette, as she continues to “date” the remaining 13 bachelors. I haven’t been blogging much about this show though I have been watching. Not sure if it has to do with the bad taste the whole Jason Mesnick/Melissa Rycroft fiasco left in my mouth, but this season hasn’t been as interesting to me.

While Jillian’s season has been a tad boring, the guys have yet to disappoint. Plus we finally get to find out tonight that one of the men actually has a girlfriend. Something about this reminds me of a VH1 dating show, so tonight’s episode should be GOOD.

And let’s not forget the very creepy bachelors casted for Jillian -

thebachelorette-tanner

We’ll start with foot fetish enthusiast Tanner P. I mean wow – does he not see how extremely creepy he comes across? More importantly, how can Jillian not send this creeper packing? All he talks about is “sucking on some toes.” Does he even know what Jillian looks like? because he seems to solely (pun intended) focus on her feet during all their one on ones. Something tells me he is on some city’s sex offender registry.

And next we have David, who is in dire need of some form of anger management/therapy. The only thing that stands out about him is his loud mouth and multiple tattoos. He seems way more concerned with Juan than he is with Jillian. Still not sure why he made it his mission to bring down Juan.

bachelorette-juan

Finally, we have 35 years old Juan, who is the most hated guy in the house. Are the guys simply jealous of him or do they have a valid reason for hating him? I’m not sure I know the answer to this, as these reality shows are able to get creative with the editing. From what I have seen, I don’t see any valid reason they have to hate him.

Recently eliminated contestant, Sasha touches on this topic in his new interview below -

On Juan, the Most Hated Man in the House: “The whole house was against him. It was like instantaneous. Everyone was on it, but David just hates the guy. He’s like, ‘He’s a snake. He’s this he’s that.’ He will bury himself. Everyone thought Juan was a spy, working for the show. He’ll kind of alienate himself, and then when he needs to be in the picture, he’ll look like he’s just one of the guys hanging out when in reality he wasn’t doing any of that.”

On David’s Anger Issues: “His dad had three heart attacks [by age] 50, so it just runs in the family. Some things just bug you. Dave just has a personal mission to almost destroy [Juan] and just make sure he doesn’t move forward in the process. Obviously, there are some anger-management issues going on.”

TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THIS SEASON OF THE BACHELORETTE?

Ex Bachelor star Jason Mesnick is finally opening up about his post Bachelor life, and even talks about his ex fiance, Melissa Rycroft‘s success on Dancing With The Stars. He also talks about Jillian Harris doing the Bachelorette.

Jason has pretty much kept a low profile until now. Jason along with his current girlfirend, Molly, opened up to Access Hollywood’s Maria Menounos (pictured above with them) about still feeling some heat over his very bad choice to dump publicly dump Melissa.

“I think the time for me when people have been negative is when like a girl – her boyfriend just broke up with her and they just look at me like it’s my fault,” Jason says “I’m sorry if you feel that way, but it’s not me! It happens every day and it wasn’t me, I promise.”

Jason and Molly claim they have yet to get used to the media spotlight and try their best to stay away from it, “We really stepped away from everything. That’s not why we did the show. That’s not why we did any of this,” says Jason.

And what do they think of Melissa’s being on DWTS? “I haven’t been able to watch, but a lot of people that I work with watch and they said she’s been doing a phenomenal job,” Molly said. “That doesn’t surprise me – she’s a great dancer.”

Jason says he is not surprised at Melissa’s success on the show, “When I found out she was on the show, I said I think she’s going to win it,” he added. “Because I know how passionate she is about dancing. I think it was a great fit.”

When asked if he had any advise for new Bachelorette, Jillian Harris, Jason says “She doesn’t need any advice from me. She said that she was always looking for a best friend and I think that’s what she’ll look for and she’ll find.”

ABC”s newest Bachelorette Jillian Harris needs to drum up some publicity for her upcoming show so she’s decided what better way to do that than to publicly root for ex-bachelor star Melissa Rycroft. They both were unlucky in their search for love with Jason Mesnick.

Melissa has made her way to the final 3 on Dancing With The Stars and Jillian makes it clear she is Team Melissa all the way.  “We are such huge supporters of each other,” Harris tells of Melissa, with whom she “became really good friends on The Bachelor.” “I’m so proud of her. I wish I could watch her but I’m so busy with [The Bachelorette]. But I’m rooting for Melissa.”

The feeling is very mutual according to Melissa, who thinks Jillian will make a great Bachelorette, “She’s probably one of the most genuine and down-to-earth girls that I know. I absolutely adore her.”  The new season of The Bachelorette premieres May 18 on ABC.

ABC has just released new details about the upcoming season of The Bachelorette starring Jillian Harris. The biggest change coming this season is that Jillian gets to pick from a pool of 30 men instead of the usual 25!

Jillian will have to eliminate 10 men the first night. The show is now set to premier on May 18th. Below are some details of what is to come this season -

Jillian will be the first person in the history of “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette” to have 30 suitors to select from. The original group of 25 men quietly seethes as the additional guests get their time with the Bachelorette. One bachelor reveals that he is secretly obsessed with Jillian’s feet, while a wealthy businessman impresses her with his laid-back confidence. In the end, Jillian presents her “first impression” rose to the man who managed to stand out in the crowd of eligible contenders.

Three of the bachelors will get to live in the mansion with Jillian, with the rest living together in an unspectacular bunkhouse down the hill.

In one of the episodes, the bachelors must vote for the man they’d most like to send home – much to one stunned and unhappy bachelor’s dismay.

Jillian will have some of the most romantic and adventurous dates ever with exciting surprises in store for her bachelors as they travel around the globe for intimate dates in California, Hawaii, Canada and Spain.

Jillian takes one lucky man on her ultimate dream date: a private concert by Grammy Award-winner and four-time CMA Female Vocalist of the Year Martina McBride at the House of Blues in Hollywood.

The Bachelors will be announced soon with one of the 30 men being rumored to be a single dad from Dallas named Tanner. No word yet on how far he makes it.

The Bachelor’s 2nd runner up Jillian Harris is currently filming The Bachelorette and is about halfway through filming. The filming began just 4 weeks after the shocking/infamous “After The Final Rose” episode.

Jillian’s mom Peggy states, “It was a first, what happened with Jason, and I think it will make her more aware. What she learned was to be really careful when choosing. It will put more pressure on her.” The Canadian Bachelorette will have a pool of 25 men to pick from.  The Bachelorette is set to premier on ABC next month.
