Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media 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 pics from this week! Enjoy!
Two months ago, ABC announced the cast of Bachelor in Paradise. But… shocker! They didn’t give us the full scoop. At the time, I agreed with Reality Steve, who said there were definitely more cast members to be revealed.
There simply weren’t enough of the Bachelorand Bachelorette fame whores we’ve all come to appreciate. Or something. Well, ABC has since revealed the entire cast list, as well as details on how the new reality show will work.
Per ABC: “Bachelor in Paradise begins with 14 former cast members, eight women and six men, who travel to beautiful Tulum, Mexico hoping to turn a potential summer fling into the real thing. However, in true Bachelor fashion, there is always a surprise.”
The first-of-it’s-kind philanthropic event held last night in NYC had a fundraising goal of $300,000, which will benefit an AIDS charity of choice for 2013. The goal was set to raise awareness surrounding the staggering number of people infected with HIV/AIDS in the U.S. (an estimated 300,000+).
The couture pieces worn by the reality stars will be auctioned off in weeks following the show to also benefit the 2013 AIDS Charity of Choice.

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.
The Bachelor Pad season 2 three-hour finale aired last night and new winners were crowned!
Beating out the other 16 contestants,Holly Durstand her partner/ex-fiance Michael Stagliano emerged the winners, taking home the $250,000 prize on the ABC show Monday night.
Holly and Michael beat out runner-ups Graham Bunn andMichelle Money. The 14 eliminated contestants were the ones who voted, giving Holly and Michael got 10 votes, while Michelle and Graham only got 4.
The finale was of course not without drama. It was revealed that Holly, 28, had gotten engaged to Blake Julian, 28, much to the complete surprise of her former fiance Michael, 27. Michael was understandably upset as he wondered why he had to find out about the engagement on the show.
While Michael admitted he was “hurt” he hadn’t heard about her engagement before the reunion show, he didn’t let it deter him from choosing to share the prize with Holly. The two partners ended up taking home $125,000 each.
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE FINALE? SHOULD HOLLY HAVE INFORMED MICHAEL ABOUT THE ENGAGEMENT BEFORE HAND?
PEOPLE magazine confirms the couple, both age 28, are planning to tie the knot after only dating a few months. Reality Steve first broke the news, stating the engagement will be revealed during the Bachelor Pad finale.
According to RS, Blake proposed about a week ago. Holly’s ex-fiance and her partner on the show, Michael Stagliano, was reportedly unaware of the engagement and had to find out during the finale taping this week. Yikes.
ABC will air the super-sized 3-hour Bachelor Pad finale Monday night at 8/7c.

On Monday, August 8, it’s time to hit the hot tubs! ABC is premiering the second season of the Bachelor Pad, a wonderful train wreck where the rejects (and one winner!) from seasons past move into a house together and compete with one another for a chance to win $250,000.
The opening episode apparently has so much drama and so little clothing, it needs three hours to do the show justice. Why, you may ask? Well, this time around former Bachelor, the creepy plastic Jake Pavelka (who LOVES a reality show), must face former fiance Vienna Girardi.
You may recall the couple’s break-up was less than amicable. Fear not though. Vienna has a new man, Kasey Kahl, who will surely guard and protect her heart. Holly Durst and break-dancing Michael Stagliano are also fresh from a broken engagement. Other memorable house mates include sh*t stirrer Michelle Money and Bachelor Pad alum Gia Allemand.
