The Bachelor – I’m Getting Dumber

The episode starts off with a ladytestant saying, “How’s everyone feeling today?” And from the sea of bitches, one solo Valley girl dramatic voice sounds, “I’m emotionally and physically DRAINED.” Are the girls trolling now? This girl whose name I can’t possibly remember didn’t actually say that in that way and be taken seriously, right? HERE WE GO.

It’s All About the Ring with Maquel, Jacqueline, Lauren B, Tia, Marikh, Bekah, Bibiana, and Krystal

Screen Shot 2018-01-15 at 8.28.07 PM

This is the GLOB (Gorgeous Ladies of the Bachelor wrestling) date. WOW. G-L-O-B. You’ve really outdone yourself, ABC. Today’s guests are two wrestlers from GLOW…a legit acronym and something more appeasing to the ear than GLOB. These OG wrestlers (like pre-Total Divas) harass the ladies for laughing and insult them with the intent of pulling out their wrestler attitude. Except oops, it backfires with Tia and Bibz, who can’t take the heat and leave the ring crying. The gals are like SEE YA, YOU WEAK GLOBS OF SHIT. Of COURSE Bekah’s the cool chick trying to become a pro wrestler and loving every minute of the date.

Ya boy Kenny comes back to slam Arie around the ring as the opening act while a bunch of these dum dums in shitty costumes watch from the sidelines. Highlights from the girls fighting: Bekah the black skank cat vs. Maquel the hideous lunch lady who beats her with a literal lunch tray. Krystal is a leopard of course. And Marikh pulled bills out of Lauren B’s underwear.

Later, Krystal makes out with him first then asks if she should be aggressive or hang back at group dates. Arie told her to be herself so she took that as, be an asshole. Bibiana complains about Krystal. Bekah talks about how breakups are good because it helps her eat better and hit the gym. Did I mention that I find her INCREDIBLY annoying? Her and Krystal can kick rocks. Ugh. Bekah gets the rose.

You Had Me At Merlot with Lauren S.

“I think it’s going to be a date about wine” MY BRAIN CELLS HAVE MELTED AWAY.

Lauren and Arie drink wine in a vineyard and talk about their early bedtimes because they’re getting old. No, Arie. You’re getting old.

Later, Arie asks what “came to coming here” for Lauren, and she replies with 15 different stories that don’t tie together. Ramble city, population: one of the Laurens. She admits finally that she feels like she’s not being herself and he’s making her nervous for no reason. So that’s a weird way to call curtains on all that word vomit. Arie grabs the rose to be like I can’t give you this because I don’t even know. But really. That’s what he said. He tells the camera the spark isn’t there. Probably because he wanted his ears to fall off. Cut to the MOST DRAMATIC suitcase pull ever and Caroline dissolving into a pile of tears. It’s week three. Calm yourself, Iago.

Love is Ruff with Ashley, Becca, Brittany, Jenna, Caroline, Chelsea & Annaliese

ASHLEY, BRITTANY, REBECCA, CAROLINE, CHELSEA, ARIE LUYENDYK JR., ANNALIESE, JENNA

We’ve got a dog “show” on this date. Would’ve been a much better date to just have a giant puppy pile but who am I to judge. Count Analiese out for any puppy interaction because of course we have another traumatic flashback to her almost losing her eye to a dog bite as a child. In quick summary, all of the ladies suck at wrangling pups onstage. Not even Fred Willard’s commentary can save this dog shit date, and that’s a true shame.

That evening, Annaliese has a traumatic experience with Arie. She doesn’t get kissed. And Chelsea interrupts her for a smooch. One day we will watch a black and white flashback about this with a sad heartbroken soundtrack. Chelsea gets the rose.

Cocktail Party

Bibiana bitches about not getting time still because that’s what she was put on this show to do. Bekah tells Arie that he likes her because she doesn’t need him. His response is, “You’re kind of nailin the, nailin the…nailin it.” Good talk. You’re getting flustered by a 13 year old, Arie. Seriously, check her ID already and get this over with.

Analiese asks for a kiss and Arie replies “I just don’t think we’re there yet.” AWKWARD. Then makes out with the taxidermy chick. DOUBLE YIKES. The girls coach Analiese to go back and put him on the spot and he’s forced to dump her pre-roses.

Roses: Bekah, Chelsea, Caroline, Kendall, Ashley, Lauren, Brittany, Becca, Seinne, Krystal, Tia, Maquel, Jenna, Jacqueline, Marikh

BYE, BIBZZ.

The Bachelor – Sleep with One Eye Open

s22e2

Hold on Tight with Becca K

Arie picks up Becca, hops on a hog and goes “so you just have to hold onto me ok?” Gawd, do they create every sort of sexual dating fantasy for every girl? I went three months in Italy thinking I was legitimately going to meet an Italian and he would take me for a spin on his vespa around the Tuscan countryside. Guess what I did instead? I spent three months getting drunk at a bar with 5 euro beers, talking to other Americans and eating a kebab every night before bed. So it’s safe to say I already hate Becca for this date. Krystal confesses to everyone back at the ranch that she’s seen a lot of body parts scattered from motorcycle accidents so THANK GOD she wasn’t on that date, because it would NOT HAVE BEEN OK. Nothing like replying to hold me tight with “I hope you don’t lose your torso when we both get smeared across the highway.”

becca

Remember when I was jelly of this date just from the motorcycle ride? Well it gets worse. They arrive at a mansion where Rachel Zoe is there and Arie acts like he knows who the F she even is. Becca does a movie montage fashion show for Arie while he drinks champagne and twirls her in each dress. And whatdya know, she looks good in EVERYTHING. So she gets to keep them all. He then gets on one knee and gives her Louboutins. Is this a dating show or did she just get gifted a million dollar wardrobe? Neil Lane, not to be outdone by Rachel Zoe, is like Becca, frost yourself with my jewels and now it’s just getting creepy that Arie wants to deck her out like a Barbie on their first date. Be more materialistic. She shows off all her riches to the other girls and one’s reaction is “they’re going to get married.” Ah to be the dumbass that thinks whoever gets you the most designer duds MUST be your husband. True love.

“Becca lights up the entire room all by herself” says Arie, but yet he still felt the need to completely give her a makeover for a simple dinner date. (Bitter, table for one.) He keeps explaining that he just wanted to spoil Becca but like why? I hope it’s not lost on her that he’s spoiling her with ABC’s money… They talk about his past experiences and if he can change her brakes so she can stop spending money on a mechanic. He can. Becca’s last relationship was an on and off 7 year relationship and PS her dad died. Despite that sad hiccup, Arie and Becca have like the best first date ever and that’s gotta SUCK to have 21 other girls get to date and smooch him after that.

Home is Where the Heart Is with Krystal

They fly to Arie’s home of Scottsdale, AZ because apparently something about Krystal’s porny voice said, I should bring this girl home on our first date. Of course he brings her to his high school and points out his first jobs and she just stares with her mouth open, basically. He shows off his home, where they look at photos and watch home videos and Arie pretends to be embarrassed even though he set this whole date up. And then my worst nightmare came true, he brought a girl he’s had one conversation with home to meet his entire family. On WHAT PLANET IS THIS NORMAL?! Not for nothing but Krystal and Arie’s mom don’t NOT look exactly alike if you know what I mean.

Screen Shot 2018-01-08 at 9.32.38 PM

At dinner, Krystal decides to unload about her shitty upbringing and how she took care of her brother, who is now homeless. After she describes her brother being attacked while living on the streets and having leathery skin and singed hair, she’s like so does that scare you? RUN, ARIE. RUN. They make out and slow dance to a singer whose name I already forgot. More importantly, Krystal rubs her head all over Arie’s shoulder while they’re dancing like she’s a cat trying to get a head scratch. The next morning, Krystal doesn’t want to tell the vultures all about her date and therefore they want to skin her alive.

Let’s Hit Love Head On with Maquel, Marikh, Tia, Valerie, Annaliese, Lauren G, Kendall, Bekah, Jenny, Seinne, Jenna, Caroline, Brittany, Bibiana and Chelsea

annaliese-puccini

We’ve got ourselves a little demolition derby where the girls decorate their own cars and then smash the shit out of each other. Annaliese can’t stop hysterically crying out of fear before the derby because she had a traumatic bumper car experience. What about children crashing their cars into each other and getting whiplash as a carnival ride ISN’T TRAUMATIC? Props to producers for giving us a dramatic flashback to a faceless child in a bumper car like she’s been abducted or something. Arie comforts Annaliese and doesn’t call her an idiot, which she deserved to be called for sobbing over bumper cars. We soon learn it was all bullshit (don’t sleep on Annaliese for being calculated) because the minute the derby starts she’s slamming into people left and right. She must have felt SUH much better after getting extra time with Arie to dry those tears. Seinne wins. Haven’t heard her speak until this moment, basically but good for her.

Screen Shot 2018-01-08 at 9.02.50 PM

Brittany injured herself from ramming up everyone’s bhole’s in her car so she can’t make the night portion. The girls pretend to be sad. Chelsea steals Arie first to reveal that she has a three-year-old son and asks Arie how he feels about that. He’s like I basically only date single mothers so yeah it’s chill. Hey Arie, why you tryin to play dad so hard? Let’s reflect on that. Seinne turns out to be the smart, cultured girl who doesn’t seem like an asshole (YET). She went to Yale and studied abroad in Brazil and Italy. Arie’s like I worked at a Pizza Hut LOLERZ. Bibz yaps all night about how she can’t have any time with Arie, so obviously we all brace ourselves for a fiery meltdown, which does not disappoint as she screams don’t f’ing touch me and storms away from the group. Now I REALLY regret going in so strong on her in my predictions. I let lust get the best of me, obviously. Speaking of lust, Arie and Bekah make out for an obscene amount of time and it’s beginning to gross me out. She’s basically a 12 year old boy. I’m concerned for Arie. Sienne gets the rose.

Cocktail Party

Brittany gets the first chat and Arie wants to check to see if she’s braindead/give her a computer printout of a fake certificate for her effort trying to kill everyone on their date. Bekah and Arie tongue more. All of the rejects who still haven’t talked to Arie band together to take down Krystal whose being greedy AF and won’t leave him alone. She’s already asking him if he missed her, Ughghghghghgh GROSS. And she’s all, I didn’t even tell the other girls that I saw your house!!!! Want a cookie, bitch? Obviously Krystal triggers me and I can’d decide if it’s her voice or…it’s definitely her voice. 100%. Bibz flips the F out on her because obviously Bibiana is the spicy latina who will have no issues popping off and speaking her mind even though she basically hasn’t tried with Arie at all. Either way, expect these two to feud it out for at least another week.

Rose Ceremony: Becca, Krystal, Seinne, Maquel, Jacqueline, Bekah, Jenna, Chelsea, Lauren S, Tia, Annaliese, Lauren B, Kendall, Brittany, Ashley, Marikh, Caroline, Bibiana

Jenny(?) storms by Arie like a drama queen instead of saying goodbye. Since he’s 37 and not 5, he follows her out to have a civil conversation about it. She’s like I’m not sad about you SEE YAAAA and squirms out of his hug. Oh, honey.

The Bachelor – Hair Down, Boobs Out

arie

We’re back for another season of The Bachelor because like ABC couldn’t even give us New Year’s Day to recover, which is pretty selfish of them, TBH. We’re introduced to Arie, for me it’s the first time I’m meeting him since I didn’t Bach until 2015 and he was on it like five solid years ago. I learned that his nickname is “the kissing bandit” and unfortunately for all of us I think we know what that means. A season full of Chris Soules-esque sloppy makeouts. Just shoot me now. ABC runs back the footage of Arie getting dumped back in the day because obviously that’s the only “heartbreak” he’s ever experienced. Cue a scene with Arie walking with a helmet in his hand & 1 zillion driving metaphors. Then Sean and Catherine sit down to tell him that he could have marriage and babies REAL soon. Or like…short-lived fame. Either one, either one will do.

Chelsea is a single mom and is like it sucks but it is what it is LOL. (I wish I watched my mom say that on national TV) She thinks she has a good chance because Emily also had a child. Then she acts like a total oddball at her introduction and says there’s a lot….to get to know….. and Arie is like hm that was weird (but falls for it anyway.) It becomes clear quickly that she’s the house bitch and also that she won’t tell him that she has a kid. This secures her a makeout and the first impression rose.

chelsea

Caroline is fresh to the real estate game and bragging about how many houses she’s sold. She’d love to have a kid one day BUT NEEDS A BOYFRIEND FIRST HAR HAR.

Tia is from Wiener, Arkansas and is this season’s accent that makes me want to rip my ears off flavor. Which makes perfect sense because her BFF is Raven. So it all adds up. She hands him a little wiener so he remembers her. I hate myself for just typing that sentence.

Kendall as predicted, is a WEIRDO. She’s hugging dead stuffed animals, playing a uke in a tree serenading a dummy seal. But then pulled a fast one on us and played it REAL normal meeting Arie. What a trap.

Bekah is a nanny who likes to climb mountains on the weekend. She drives a Mustang up and instantly makes a bunch of enemies but Arie is digging her bubbly personality. I’m waiting with baited breath until they reveal that she was hiding her age because she’s actually 18.

bekah

Marikh owns an Indian restaurant with her mom. She “uses many different spices but is ready for some salt and pepper in her life.” ZING. (Hey Arie, she just called you old.)

Krystal films herself working out on a beach for a career. Eye roll. She also has a homeless brother and packs a sack lunch for homeless peeps every day. Her raspy sex phone operator voice that is already getting on my nerves. Her entrance = holding her hands over her heart and saying a prayer or something and Arie gets a boner.

Bibiana was underwhelming for my #1 girl crush this season. I’m ashamed to admit it.

Brittane puts a sticker that says Nice Butt on Arie’s bhole.

Valerie dresses like a sparkly banana in a prom dress probably from Deb.

Rebecca/Becca makes him mock propose to her. Can you say COCKY?!

They put all the Lauren’s in the same limo. What a sick joke.

Amber (I’m pretty sure it was Amber…all of the A’s looked the same) announced upon her entrance that she owns a spray tan company and therefore has seen a lot of dicks and hoping Arie isn’t one. Sick intro, tell your future boyf how many D’s you’ve seen.

Annaliese is basically Hilary Duff from A Cinderella Story because she dresses as “the kissing bandit” and then builds up to a big reveal at the end because Arie still hasn’t seen what she looks like. Annaliese would be dumb enough to rob a bank with that mask and think it hides her identity.

ANNALIESE P., ARIE LUYENDYK JR.

One of the A’s I think asked Arie to smell her pits so she could make a pit stop pun. With the nerves flying around there’s NO WAY her pits didn’t smell of saturated stress sweat.

Maquel rides up in a racecar then steals Arie to take a selfie. Did they even talk? Probably not.

Brittany brings Arie out to the driveway where they race battery operated kid cars. Except the way that Britt wedges herself into a car fit for a two year old, while wearing stilettos, physically gives me the uncomfies. She bets him a kiss and he obviously lets her win so he can tongue her down. Brittany immediately brags about said smooch to all the other ladies.

Jenna gives him a foot bath and massage, causing me to throw up all over the couch. And she’s a real hot mess.

Rose Ceremony: (probably forgot some because let’s be real, there’s too many)

Chelsea, Rebecca/Becca, Marikh, Kendall, Lauren G, Krystal, Bekah, Lauren S, Seinne, Caroline, Brittany, Bibiana, Jenna, Valerie, Jacqueline, Jenny, Lauren B, Ashley, Tia, Maquel

The Bachelor S22 – Ranking the Contestants

It’s that time of year again where I determine who I will hate with the fire of a thousand suns based on what dum dum answer they gave to pageant-esque interview questions or what made up job producers gave them.

bachgroup

I’m gonna be honest I think ABC realized that they needed to get their heads out of their asses and really step it up from the most hated bachelor and Whaboom guy, and finally decided to cut the crap. These women are old enough to begin considering marriage (if that’s what you’re looking for on this show), the majority of them seem to have stable jobs (whether made up or not) and have answered the questions like normal humans. Whoa. Let’s dive in. *I usually rank them worst to best but laziness got the best of me this year and I left them in alphabetical order. Sue me. (Pls don’t.)

Ali, 27, Personal Stylist.

ali

Super normal and pretty. Will probably make it far…or her love for Nickelback will get in the way. I mean, I get that it’s a joke to hate Nickelback but who actually consistently listens to them? I couldn’t even list 5 Nickelback songs.

Amber, 29, Business Owner.

amber

Held a python once because she wanted to be like Britney Spears at the VMA’s. Every girls’ dream.

Annaliese, 32, Event Designer.

annaliese

Can’t live without cheese, admires Chrissy Teigen and Miley Cyrus, wants to be a Disney princess. BASIC BETCHHHH ALERTTTTT. (Also try to convince me that Ali, Amber and Annaliese are not the same person. You can’t.)

Ashley, 25 Real Estate Agent.

ashley

Fave movie is Superbad so I dig her.

Becca K. 27, Publicist.

becca

5 things you can’t live without? “Chapstick, facial lotion, bobby pins, popcorn, and stamps.” I’m gonna need to know a little more about why homegirl cannot live without stamps. HOW OFTEN ARE YOU MAILING LETTERS? Are you a professional pen pal? Do tell.

Bekah M., Nanny.

bekah

This bitch won’t even provide her age and she kind of looks like Peter Pan in that photo so I’m out on her.

Bibiana, 30, Executive Assistant.

Bibiana

I think I have a raging girl crush on Bibz just from this pic. Even though she’s wearing a cami ala 8th grade dances, she still looks like a goddamn model. Then I start to read her bio and see that she’d love to be an orca whale — Free Willy is literally my favorite childhood movie and I’ve always wanted to be besties with an Orca while Will You Be There softly plays in the background AND her guilty pleasure is popping pimples. DON’T FEEL GUILTY, GURRRRLLLL. There’s nothing that compares to the joy I feel when I hear that snap of a pimple and the white pus oozes out. Did I just take that too far and gross all of you out? Probably. But I know my gurl Bibz would’ve appreciated that and that’s why I think maybe I should date her instead of Arie. If it wasn’t clear yet, she’s my fave. Official walk-up song:

Bri, 25, Sports Reporter.

Bri

Bri looks like a sports reporter and could stand to tone down her showgirl makeup a little bit. Also is she looking for a movie deal with this answer for greatest achievement to date: “Putting myself together after heartache and winning an Emmy!” So this will be her back story and that seems pretty obvious. What an obstacle to overcome.

Brittane J., 27, Marketing Manager.

Brittane

Let’s first address how she’s spelling her name. Come on. As I’m sure everyone in high school did, I would be pronouncing that shit Britt-ayne. Other than that name, nothing stands out about her. Every answer ties back to how much she wants to get married so apparently she’s the one who expects to find true love outta this instead of a bunch of new instaG followers. Keep the dream alive, Brittaaaaaayne.

Brittany T., 30, Tech Recruiter.

BrittanyT

 “Where do you meet guys? I don’t… jk. The past two I’ve met have been through dating apps and they’re terrible human beings.” PREACH, SISTA! Love a girl who can be honest. “Every guy I’ve met is a dirt bag. Thank you and goodnight.” At the same time though, if Tinder isn’t working, how do you know reality TV will be better? Hmmmm….

Caroline, 26, Realtor.

Caroline

Caroline also seems like a front runner. She puts on a mean Celine Dion concert in her car—she obviously hasn’t heard my sister and I bring the house down with It’s All Coming Back to Me Now, but whatever. She’d like to do a fake Hibachi birthday with Betty White, Ryan Reynolds & Vince Vaughn which seems like it could be a real rowdy crew. I bet Betty White can catch a flying chicken chunk AND would opt in for the sake shots. So all in all, she’s probs pretty kewl.

Chelsea, 29, Real Estate Exec Assistant.

Chelsea

Another real estate B in the game. Also shout out to Chelsea for really bringing through the pageant vibes with Do you prefer hot weather or cold weather and why? “My ideal weather would be mid-70’s sunny, with a slight breeze.” ALL YOU REALLY NEED IS A LIGHT JACKET!

perfect date

Jacqueline, 26, Research Coordinator.

jacqueline

J over here is this season’s nerdbomber. She’s trying to get a Ph.D. (had to google how to abbrev that) in chemical psychology, wants to build animal conservations in Africa or India or some shit and her career is the most important to her. I’m not knocking a career girl but in the past things don’t tend to pan out well for them. Color me shocked that a show where you “find your husband” could potentially kill your road to a Ph.D.

Jenna, 28, Social Media Manager.

jenna

Jenna broke her wrist on a mechanical bull and this gives me hard flashbacks to my sister’s bachelorette party where she took a spin on the ole bull, gracefully stepped off of it when she’d had enough and still managed to wear a soft cast for two weeks after because of the way she was holding the bull handles. LOLOLOL. Hopefully Jenna’s injury was more badass than that.

Jenny, 25, Graphic Designer. 

jenny

What are you most afraid of? “Picking the wrong person to marry.” Welp, Jenny. You’ve picked the wrong show.

Jessica, 26, Television Host.

jessica

Oh Jessica is a television host that clearly no one has heard of? I wonder what made her come on the Bachelor. EYE. ROLL. Our Canadian flavor this season, Jessica makes her country proud with this quote, “Kissing is my favorite food.” Goodbye, Jessica.

Kendall, 26, Creative Director.

kendall

Kendall is a weirdo. She’s weirder than the chicken obsessed freak from last season. I want to pick just one of her answers to focus on but honestly they’re all so baffling so let’s do a quick summary of them. Her spirit animal is a bat, she once drove a car off of a ramp and through the caboose of a moving train, her ex gave her an alligator hand holding an iron heart in a jar and she loooooved it. She’s looking for a guy that can survive a Zombie apocalypse and would one day like to go to a hedgehog cafe. I can’t with Kendall. Either she’s a pathological liar or she’ll be telling these loony ass stories on every date with Arie and that’s something I can’t handle.

Krystal, 29, Fitness Coach.

krystal

When asked how good of a cook she was she answered thebomb.com. Put your spatula where your mouth is, Krystal. That’s some confidence right there.

Lauren B., 25, Tech Salesperson.

laurenb

Nothing about Lauren B was exciting which gives me PTSD to the last Lauren B. who was a plain bagel. We shall see…

Lauren G., 26, Executive Recruiter.

laureng

The Lauren’s are really shaping out to be a boring bunch. She seems fine, wants purple hair, watches This is Us, would like to be Oprah. Who wouldn’t?

Lauren J., 33, Recent Masters Graduate.

laurenj

Out of the 4 Lauren’s, I’d place my bets on this one. Mostly because I laughed out loud at her guilty pleasure: “Eating full meals in bed. Like putting a legit body towel over me and ordering pizza – no plates needed.” I’ve eaten full meals in bed but I’ve never gotten to the level of needing a full towel covering my body. Damn, girl.

Lauren S., 31, Social Media Manager.

laurens

Alright, fine. This Lauren is alright too. Seems cool because she likes Taylor Swift’s squad and otters. I relate to her only having participation trophies for sports because I, too, am the opposite of athletic. I know…it may come across as a shocker because I seem SUH coordinated.

Maquel, 23, Photographer.

Maquel

Can we get a phonetic pronunciation of this name? Nothing else really stands out about lil Maquey, other than the fact that she’s a baby.

Marikh, 27, Restaurant Owner.

Marikh

Marikh here is a chef so girlfrand who described her cooking as bomb.com better RECOGNIZE. I hope they’re pitted against each other in a cooking date competition. You can tell I’m starting to nod off reading these bios when I create a cast feud before I’ve even seen the first episode.

Nysha, 30, Orthopedic Nurse.

Nysha

Nysha has a cross tattoo on her middle finger. I FEEL like this could be taken the wrong way. I do appreciate her approach on what fictional character she wishes she was because 90% of these biddies go for Disney princesses and she picked Mulan. My fave Disney movie. I mean, I’ll Make A Man Out of You was the best song ever written. Respect.

Olivia, 23, Marketing Associate.

Olivia

Olivia is too young for Arie. I’m sorry but I’m just gonna say it. After enduring a season full of widdle babies for old, skanky Nick Viall, I just cannot condone this. Plus her favorite book is 50 Shades of Grey. Congrats on graduating college and learning more about what you’d like sexually but that shouldn’t be ANYONE’s favorite book.

Seinne, 27, Commercial Real Estate Manager.

Seinne

Besides being another realtor and having a unique name that I don’t know how to pronounce, Seinne didn’t stand out to me. SAARRRYYY.

Tia, 26, Physical Therapist.

Tia

Best trip Tia’s ever been on was to a swingers resort in Cancun. Tia does sex stuff.

Valerie, 25, Server.

Valerie

Val’s greatest achievement was buying a house in downtown Nashville before she was 25, further hammering it home that servers make more than I do with a full time job with benefits. Let that sink in.

If you’d like to lull yourself to sleep, read full bios here.

Weekly JUice

Week of 9/4/17

1. Taylor Swift Has Sex.

As if I wasn’t overwhelmed enough with angsty Tay, she goes right ahead and sneaks out another new song over the long weekend. I actually saw/listened to it on her instagram story and was like oh this is some weird sponsorship song that she wrote for a football game. Since football is literally my least favorite thing on this planet, I wrote it off until I went onto Twitter and everyone was like omggggg Tay’s new song #ORGASM and I felt real dumb for thinking it was just a marketing ploy. Hey Taylor, next time you’re going to release a song about sex and stuff, don’t promote it with Game Day clips and confuse the hell out of me. I mean “Touch me, and you’ll never be alone” WOooooOOOO, girl. We get it. You like sex stuff. Whatever. I’m ready for it. And to be clear, the “it” I’m referring to is playing this song just as much as LWYMMD…not sex.

2. Older Peter is the New Bach.

arie

The Bachelor Franchise is sinking fast and they KNOW it. They just aired quite possibly two of the worst seasons ever in history B2B and used a 100% scripted rape storyline for ratings on their trashy summer show. What do you do when you’re in hot water? Apparently pick a contestant from 15 years ago (Arie Luyendyk Jr.) who no one even remembers to try and get back in everyone’s good graces. Everyone with a vagina wanted Peter to be the next Bachelor but he had to go and piss us all off by looking like he was trying WAY TOO HARD to be the next Bachelor and also kind of being a dick to Rachel post-breakup. So what does Mike Fleiss the shouting Twitter-monster do? (I gotcha back, Kaitlyn. Mike Fleiss SUCKS.)  He throws shade at Peter then picks someone who looks like a Z-List Peter. People don’t forget that you suck, bro. And yes I’ll probably still watch. Because FOMO.

#tbt to the most incredible journey of this life time that has now officially come to an end today. As I sit here writing this, I struggle to hold back the tears as I am overcome with emotion one last time. First and foremost.. Rachel, there are so very many things that I've wished I could say to you since the day we parted ways in Spain, but for everyone's sake, I'll keep it short… You gave me a chance and all that I can say is thank you. I have a heart filled with love for you now and always and wish you nothing but the best in your life and love ahead. ABC, you saw something in me, but something held me back. You treated me with such love and kindness and showed me glimpses of a life I never once dreamed that I could have. I will be forever humbled and grateful and will always look back at these last 6 months with an ear to ear smile, knowing that this has truly been a very special life indeed. Upon leaving the @bacheloretteabc I was asked, "what did you learn about yourself during this process?" And at the time I naively said "nothing that I can think of." Now… looking back… I realize I learned one of the single greatest teachings of my life; When you let uncertainty or fear guide your decisions, you risk missing out on what could potentially be the greatest opportunity of a life time. So live dangerously, live without the fear of the unknown, and continue to live and love with a heart that is truly open to anything. #thankyou #lovealways

3. Kelly Clarkson is Back.

Well this is a fun little ditty! Taylor goes all bad girl and Kelly goes all hip hop sass. This video made me feel like I was on all sorts of drugs but you know what? I didn’t hate it. She also dropped this slow jam. It’s whatever. Love so soft is the real heater here.

4. Third Royal Babe.

This happened over the weekend so it’s not fresh news but I got scooped and then I scooped someone else (it’s the circle of life) and I realized just now that I never got to properly JUice about it. But anyway another model baby on the way for this perfect fam. I mean they’ve already got two PLUS they’re royal so the third one is really just bragging at this point. We get it. You make beautiful humans. Enough, enough…. just kidding. Get ready for number 3 by looking at these cute little mugs.

5. It’s Happening.

Promos are making the rounds as we get closer and closer to the comeback of Will & Grace. Instead of watching marathons all day on We (seriously does that network play anything other than a 24/7 rotation of this show?) we’ll get new epis every week! If this comeback lets me down–as they all tend to do–ya’ll are gonna HEAR about it. FINGERS CROSSED!!!!!!

 

BONUS: Who knew Kylie Jenner and I had anything in common?!

Week of 4/24/17

1. Happy Birthday to me, from Harry Week.

Harry + James 43v3r, beginning May 15th, the day that I was born into this world. WHAT CRAZY ANTICS WILL THEY GET INTO?! You bet your bottom dollar I’m about to find out. I’m so excited that I’m not even thinking about how my sister, brother in law and boyf collectively RUINED his SNL appearance for me by continuously asking why I thought he was attractive. I’m choosing to ignore that STUPID question and get ready for new music and new lawlzzzz from this dynamic duo. PS: I lied. I’m not going to ignore that stupid question. Just look no further than the first three gifs I found on google. Any mood-Harry is sexy. Argument over.

2. Bye, Farmer Chris.

I can’t with the Bach contestants and how they treat their lives like a boozy adult summer camp. Go on dancing with the stars, “write” a book, promote MVMT watches on InstaG, go to paradise for 3 weeks to bang other bach family members #incest. Rinse, repeat. Well it looks like Farmer Chris done F’ed that up for himself. In the sketchiest recount of an accident I’ve ever heard apparently two trucks fell in a ditch and the driver of the other vehicle died. Then Chris ran away and hid at someone’s house until the cops provided a warrant to drag his ass to jail, where he took this v sober mugshot. YIKES. What would Chris Harrison say?

3. Bye, Dirty Dancing.

I previously shit all over this casting job when it was announced but now that they’ve actually released footage it deserves to be re-dumped on. Why ruin a classic? This seriously looks terrible and the fact that it’s a made for TV movie says everything. Yes that’s right, calling it a “great television event” doesn’t change the fact that it’s a higher budget Lifetime movie. Don’t you dare disgrace Patrick Swayze and his magic hips like that. They’re sambaing in his grave as he ROLLS OVER.

4. Hi, Blake & Ryan.

Blake & Ryan hit the red carpet making me uncontrollably drool all over and I needed to talk about it obviously. This dress is pretty ugly but it’s Blake and I still gasped when I saw her. That’s all. Carry on.

5. Don’t trust Ja Rule to organize a festival.

Ja created Fyre Festival on an island in the Bahamas where tickets were like 1200 bucks and he promoted it with a bunch of models on yachts but like guess what? It was a heaping pile of hot garbage. Or in the words of every update from it today: MASS CHAOS! It’s a good thing the target audience for this shitshow wasn’t millennials addicted to social media… oh wait…

fyrefestival

Definitely looks like a once in a lifetime experience! Hey Ja Rule, how about you stop pretending you’re the next music festival mogul and get back to popping out bangerz with Ashanti. The jig is up. You’re embarrassing yourself. Also, not to be glossed over–anyone who bought tickets to this event based on a rap music video promo with models shaking their T&A:

BRING US INTO THE WEEKEND JA!

Television, The Bachelor

The Bachelor – Goodbye 3 Hours of My Life

This tweet sums up last night as a whole. It is NEVER necessary for the Bachelor to be 3 hours long, especially not when it’s the worst season that’s ever aired on TV. And while I’m ranting, WTF APRIL?! HAVE YOUR G-D BABY. Three weeks is FAR too long for us all to watch you eat hay, shit and nap (see Corinne, giraffes nap too!) GET THE SHOW ON THE ROAD.

But anyway, let’s pick up with Raven who high fives strangers and skips around Finland to a poppy soundtrack after she O’s. Or that’s what the producers would like us to believe. There’s no WAY Nick got the job done. And while we’re on the topic of Nick, let’s discuss how stupid he looks in a winter hat. With the baby hairs sticking out the front and the way it sits half on/half off his head, he looks like a real wiener. These girls have to be drying up just at the sight of winter Nick.

Rachel

Rachel is falling in love with Nick but cannot be trusted with her judgement because she’s wearing a crop top in Finland. Rachel asks Nick, “ do you know where you stand with me?” and Nick says “not entirely” so they’re really in sync as a couple. She tells Nick that she’s falling in love with him and he says 100% samesies. No seriously, he used the FULL percentage in reciprocation. Seems like a pretty dumb thing to do with someone that you’re OBVIOUSLY sending home. So he’s continuing his streak of blind sighting girls. They spend the night togets and obv Rachel makes herself vulnerable (wink, wink). She also doesn’t take her choker off when she sleeps which is CRAZY. Who can sleep in a choker? These are the biggest things I took away from this date. Penguin onesie and CHOKER.

Vanessa

Screen Shot 2017-03-07 at 8.41.26 AM

Vanessa & Nick wear matching icy blue swimwear and do a polar plunge basically in a little pool outside a cabin. Sounds ssssssuper fun. Nick spazzes out all over the joint and looks like an R-worded dinosaur once they get back inside to warm up. Then they do it again. WHAT IS EVEN THE POINT OF THIS DATE? If anyone ever suggested this as a date to me I’d be outta there. Vanessa’s really getting shafted on this show. Plus she has to look at Nick’s stupid winter hat situation for the entire time. They hit the hot tub to warm up and ask each other if they’ll last after this show. The answer is an obvious no. Nick will not leave this country to live with Vanessa and her tight-wad family. Why? Because he’s proud to be an American. Barf all over me. Now that Nick’s faced with the decision of moving to another country for a girl he doesn’t love, suddenly he’s Uncle Sam. Okkkkk. Shit starts to get too real too quick so Nick keeps telling Vanessa that they’re just too similar, which is a bitch ass way of saying that he doesn’t see a future with her because later on he says hopefully we can “figure it out and accept our differences.” HOW CAN YOU HAVE DIFFERENCES IF YOU’RE SO SIMILAR? HMMMMM, NICK? Riddle me that.

Rose Ceremony

Nick cries big sloppy wet tears because that’s what he does best and sends Rachel packing. Could’ve done without this tearful goodbye, tbh considering we know Rachel will be just fine. She’ll have her tongue in 26 other guys’ mouths in no time. Time and tongueing other men on TV heals all wounds, is what I always like to say.

WOMEN TELL ALL

I’ve always loved the concept of the Women Tell All epi because what could be greater TV than tossing angry, rejected women into one room and then trotting out the man who dumped them? Unfortunately, it can also be a disaster in the form of catty bitches just shouting at each other about one little thing, Housewives reunion style. That was the case this time around with the Taylor vs. Corinne saga. And let me be very clear, I’m #TeamCorinne. Everything else is white noise–like for example Elizabeth and Lacey, who painted on their best faces and showed up ready to yap at every opportunity. Who are either of these ladies? The world may never know.

Hey does everyone remember Liz, who slept with Nick then surprised him on the show and he didn’t remember sleeping with her? Well she took last night as an opportunity to get up on her soapbox to tell everyone that it doesn’t matter who you bang in your past, it shouldn’t define you. Which, like, true, but not necessary to make a feminist manifest over slutty drunk wedding sex. Also, you still have a tattoo that takes up your ENTIRE back. People don’t forget.

Taylor then takes a page out of Liz’s book and declares that people in the helping profession shouldn’t be shamed for helping people. WHAT? Everyone basically boos her off the stage. Corinne gets up mid- Taylor sob sesh to get herself a cold glass of champs. Amen, sistah.

Screen Shot 2017-03-07 at 8.34.21 AM

After Corinne is properly hydrated, her and Taylor have a LITERAL battle to the death of who napped and when and how long their nap was and did they have a blanket and I want to drill a hole in my skull. Corinne would just like everyone to know that she was fucking tired. Same, girl. Same. I’m especially tired of Chris Harrison repeatedly asking Taylor why she’s getting emotional and her response being “I’m just so overwhelmed.” Maybe if you didn’t act like such a seaward everyone wouldn’t overwhelmingly hate you. Then the audience is treated to Raquel’s cheese pasta, which spoiler alert: is  just plain pasta with shredded cheese on it. I would’ve put that directly in the trash where it belongs. There’s only one cheese pasta that’s acceptable and it’s called Kraft Macaroni and Cheese (SHAPES ONLY).

Kristina gets the “hot seat” to re-tell her story that we just watched in full in a recap and Liz rips that spotlight away immediately by sobbing in her chair and turning it into another feminist rant. Liz would like us all to stop fighting about naps and think about how Kristina could have been forced into prostitution. Again, valid point but like stfu, Liz. Let Kristina tell her story. We get it, you’re all friends except for Taylor and Corinne and Liz would like us to know that she builds wells in foreign countries instead of sleeping with bachelor contestants at a made for TV wedding. (Don’t think I didn’t notice how you had one of the other girls slide that factoid in, LIZ.)

Finally Lispy comes out IN THE MOMENT WE’VE ALL BEEN WAITING FOR and Lacey wants to know why he only talked about Josephine when he was with her. WAS HE FRIEND ZONING HER? Lacey, he had no idea who you are, just like the rest of us and if he chose to talk about the girl dressed as Sarah from Hocus Pocus while on a date with you then you need to reevaluate your life.

DLo still isn’t over being dumped and “asks a question” aka just sobs and says it was unfair how Nick broke up with her. I mean, Nick is quite literally the worst at dumping girls but realistically what did these B’s expect? He says sorry (ish) and everyone pets DLo so she stops crying so much.

Rachel comes out and everyone praises her as the new Bachelorette and I actually fell asleep when she was talking. Next season should be F-U-N! Here’s to another 3 hours down the drain next weeeeeekkkkk weeeowwwwweeeowwwwwweeeeeee!

rachel

(I think I’m getting Bach delirious.) Also, Rachel if you’re going to be the next Bachelorette you’re going to have to do better than an awkward one sleeve dress. PUH-LEASE.
