What a difference seven months makes. Last summer, women across America cheered when Juan Pablo Galavis was announced as the next Bachelor.
The Bachelor gig is usually reserved for contestants who make it further into the amazing journey that is the Bachelorette. Juan was an early boot for Desiree Hartsock, but we were smitten with the funny (or so we thought) and charming (or so we thought) soccer player from Venezuela.
Now, women across America despise Juan Pablo, and one woman in particular threw a can of beer at him at a club in Atlantic City over the weekend. Ess okay to laugh, right?
Porsha Williams, Brody Jenner, Joanna Krupa, Kim Kardashian, Rachel Zoe and more were spotted out and about this week.
Porsha Stewart was in attendance for a special premiere of Captain America: The Winter Soldier on Monday at CineBistro at Town Brookhaven thanks to Liquid Soul. Lucky Porsha is seen posing here with one of our favorite actors: Anthony Mackie!
It's time for he said/she said courtesy of the Bachelor! After a midnight ocean tryst, this season's Bachelor Juan Pablo Galavis started back pedaling–and shaming–his partner in passion. Now Clare Crawley (is she still vying for his attention? I'd have been totally out of there!) is telling her side of the story.
Of course, despite her toast to "making love" and Chris Harrison's hint that the two may have diddled, Clare is setting the record straight. They did not do the deed. Can you imagine the sand in the nether regions? While I'm not sure she's all that convincing, I do think that Juan Pablo handled the situation like a giant bag of skeeze.
So, that Juan Pablo Galavis…he's kind of a sex shamer, isn't he? After getting down (and perhaps dirty) after hours with contestant Clare Crawley, who'd received a rose on Monday night's group date, the Bachelorkind of made her (and America) feel icky in the most dramatic awkward shaming in the show's history. Ever.
What's worse? Everyone keeps talking about it…and of course, by everyone, I mean the show's glorious host Chris Harrison and Juan Pablo himself. Seriously, JP just needs to keep quiet for a while. Chris, talk away, my friend!
I am fully caught up on my Bachelorpremiere, and might I say that was Juan helluva opener! Oh the awkward crying, and that amazing reaction to the first impression rose. "She's speechless." And help me out here…since when is "free spirit" a career? Juan Pablo Galavis certainly has his work cut out for him this season with this crop of ladies.
Even Juan was worried that he wasn't going to make it to the finish line of the series' eighteenth season. The stress and drama of dating a bevy of girls under fairy tale like circumstances can certainly take its toll on a dude!
I'm not going to lie, I've been looking forward to Juan-uary for a long time, but I have a confession to make. I've yet to watch it (it's patiently waiting on my DVR) because of Sunday'sSister Wives. Plus, I got hooked on a little web series on Hulu Plus that is the most hilarious Bachelorparody called Burning Love (and don't even get me started on the amazing guest stars!).
However, while I pine for this season's Juan PabloGalavis, one of the ladies who got kicked off in the first round is already trying to extend her fifteen minutes. Is it just me, or does one episode of the dating show not warrant a full fifteen? Not only that, but one reputable media outlet is touting hot father Juan as a (gasp!) deadbeat dad! What??
If there's a void in your life where the Bachelor used to be, have I got a treat for you! ABC recently announced a month full of Bachelor and Bachelorette related events. Seriously, every Sunday and Monday night in January, BAM! Bachelor on your TV. ABC is calling it Juan-uary, cause they're clever like that.
