They’re BAAACK! The Bachelorette “twins” make their appearance

The Bachelorette Gossip, capitals regular font and verdana for %22gossip%22

by,

Hey everybody!  Hope you fared well since “The Bachelor” ended.  I can’t believe it’s time for “The Bachelorette” to start up already!

Tonight was the first episode, the one where the guys get out of the limos, or in this case, motorized cupcakes?  Hmm… where the heck did he get that thing anyway?  Ok, and what did you think of the “carpool?”  That was cool.  I’m not sure how comfortable that guy was wearing wet pants for the rest of the night though, what do you think?

Choosing between two girls, who then have to choose between 25 guys, an interesting premise.  I think they could really do something interesting with this idea, but it sounds like it won’t be going very far, after tomorrow’s follow-up episode, they say it’ll be just one girl.  The guys voted tonight on which one they’d rather get to know, and the other one, well, maybe she’ll be the NEXT Bachelorette?  Should we vote on that?  😉 lol

Watching these two ladies, I’m not a fan of either one.  I’m hoping the show will still be worth watching just to see what happens between all of the other people on it; relationships can be so interesting.

Britt is still SO FAKE.  I just can’t see her being happy in a relationship until she realizes who she really is.  Until then, it’s like she’s putting on a show, and I don’t even think she realizes it, but it’s getting really old (read about histrionic personality:  extra dramatic and overly sexual to get attention).

Kaitlyn seems ok, but then they replayed her jokes from last season, and they are pretty classless in my opinion, but hey, it looks like at least one guy gets her sense of humor/class.  Hope it works out for her.  Neither girl lacks in the looks department.  Kaitlyn does look at bit underweight to me though, which is concerning, especially with her ever-present anxiety issues on today’s episode (eating disorders are a type of anxiety disorder, not that I am saying that she has either).

Ok, now on to some of the crazy characters on the show.  What did you all think about “the drunk guy?”  Pretty convenient huh?  Doesn’t this make the third season with a drunk guy on it?  I think the first one was real, maybe the second one was too, but this one, seemed REALLY FAKE.  Seriously, he did not look drunk, his eyes were sharp and clear and his movements were deliberate, even when he stumbled at the pool, his glass of liquor didn’t even spill at all.  If you fell, drunk or not, wouldn’t you think you’d spill that glass?  Un huh.  And what about him going in the pool?  That brought a lot of drama the other season when a guy did that too.  Re-play much?  I guess the only thing he did that I haven’t seen done before was pat a raunchy girl on her ass.  Funny how that fits the personality she portrays in her jokes, but she wasn’t liking it on the show.  Maybe she should learn some new jokes…

And maybe the weirdest one of all, the “amateur sex coach.”  Um, whaaaa’?  Ok, that is some messed up stuff.  I hope nobody gets involved with this guy until he figures out what his issues really are.  Yikes.  Anybody who thinks a woman is a “play toy” might actually need to be playing for the other team.

So which lucky woman will get to talk to these gents again?  (Minus the drunk guy who got booted off of the show by a stern Chris Harrison.  I think for a second there Chris thought he was about to get decked when he told the guy he needed to leave!  And that guy was built too.  Good thing that that very large security guard was nearby or we might have seen Chris Harrison’s body being carried overhead through the complex and dumped into the pretty blue pool lol!)

There are a couple of guys on there that seem really decent, I look forward to watching to see more of what they’re all about.

Then we came to the end of tonight’s episode, and the answer of the big question, WHO WILL BE THIS SEASON’S BACHELORETTE?!  Well, um, maybe not.  In the last 5 minutes I realized that they weren’t going to tell us the outcome of the votes tonight.  Ugh.  It was all too “Survivor.”  Chris Harrison even quoted the show with his “I’m going to go tally the votes.”  And then he never came back and they flew back to LA while we all waited on the edge of our seats!  …  Ok, that last part didn’t happen, but it COULD HAVE!

We’ll all have to tune in tomorrow to find out who will be this season’s Bachelorette, Britt or Kaitlyn.  When the votes are counted, I think Kaitlyn will have to win for the show to have any real feel to it at all.  We’ll see!  What do you think will happen?

Wow, Britt was SO being fake!

The Bachelor Gossip, framed

 

by,

Suzanne Coleman

OK guys, now I have to say something after seeing Monday’s episode of “The Bachelor, The Women Tell All.”  Now, if you’ve been following my blog so far, you know what I’ve been thinking about a few of the girls on the show.

I generally liked Britt, even though she was clearly a bit self-centered when she grabbed all of the attention on the group date after the other girl got the rose and not HER.  She did realize later that she was being selfish though, so I forgave her for that.  No one is perfect, heck no one is even close…

But now that I think about things again after seeing her on Monday night’s episode, things have become clearer.  It now seems like her saying how selfish she was about the whole episode was her being fake in another attempt to get attention.  And then, this comes to mind too.  I remember her telling the other girls about how she and Chris S. spent two hours alone together in HIS ROOM…”napping”… that was pretty rude, and not very classy either.  It’s not like they were her close friends whom she would tell EVERYTHING about her relationship.  No, not at all.  The truth is, she told them to make them jealous.  And, it worked.

When I watched Monday’s episode, it became really obvious to me that she was full of something.  I’m sure she probably did have some real feelings for Chris at the time they were together.  I mean, they sure seemed to have good chemistry, even if we didn’t see much of anything else between them.  That’s enough to make it hurt when things don’t work out, I think we all know.  But it’s been months now, and the pain from that short fling has likely faded.

Instead of seeing a girl in pain over an old relationship that didn’t work out, I saw a woman who seemed calculated and manipulative in her behaviors.  Throughout most of the episode she demanded that all of the attention be on her.  I’ve never seen a “Tell All” that spent so much time on one person!  The rest of the show was just bits and pieces of other people’s concerns.  Her crying was definitely fake.  It may have started out a bit real, but after that, it wasn’t.  Even Chris H. could tell, he is very intelligent and he always leads people in the best way he knows how, and he was trying to get her to stop faking it lol.  But she just kept on milking it, often looking up to make sure that someone or something was looking at her.  When you’re crying you don’t pause, look up deliberately, then look down and start fake crying again.  At least I don’t…

I know lots of people still like her.  She is a beautiful young woman, no doubt.  She is working very hard to further her public career, and this show is a great platform for that.  I don’t want to take that away from her, but really, she isn’t being REAL with us.  I mean, the whole sleeping in your makeup thing is a pretty good clue that she either has some really serious issues with herself, or she is super concerned about how she looks on camera at all times.

While watching the series you could tell that many of the girls did not like Britt, and some called her out on being fake and self-centered.  Now we know why.  Maybe this helps explain Carly’s behavior a bit more.  It’s hard to say who is being real on the show, until you see something that makes you say “ah HA!”

I have to say though, if I was the director/producer of that episode I would have pulled Britt down off of that throne, uh, I mean stage, and focused more attention on the other stories we all wanted to see unfold that evening.

Now, I guess we can all wait to see what happens on the finale.  What do you think, Whitney vs. Becca?  I know who I like the best!  🙂

OK, here goes, “The Bachelor, The Women Tell ALL!” IS ON NOW

OK guys!  I am going to give this live blogging a try!  We are all waiting for “The Bachelor, The Women Tell All” to begin!  I’ll keep writing here as the show goes along, hope it’s fun for you too 🙂  And here we go… it’s ON.

So it looks like from the previews we’re going to see all the match-ups I thought we might!  It looks like a lot of DRAMA is about to UNFOLD!

Here were my predictions:

https://sliceiconic.com/2015/02/27/girls-whats-going-to-go-down-on-mondays-episode-of-the-bachelor-the-women-tell-all/

 

And, it begins…

Love those viewing parties, lol, the drunk girls, HILARIOUS!  Gotta love ’em 🙂

 

Kelsey vs. Ashley

OOooo Kelsey, bringing more drama…  nobody is up to HER standards.

Haaahaa Ashley burns her, saying Kelsey’s laugh is such a “fake laugh”  as she laughs as evilly as possible to demonstrate lol.

 

Carly… the word I don’t like to use.

 

Carly vs. Britt, it is ON.  Chris H. wasn’t ready…

Britt calls out Carly for being a FAKE FRIEND to her in the house.  That is NOT COOL of Carly at all.

I can’t believe Carly just said to Britt, “my friendship with you.”  Wow, you thought you were her friend?

Whoa!  Jillian speaks up and agrees that Carly was really mean and out of line at SO many times.  I guess Carly said some awful things about her in the limo on the way to the mansion in the very beginning of the show.  Jillian is really upset about how Carly acted towards her AND Britt and says that Britt is truly a nice person, but Carly… not so much.

 

Britt is on the hotseat now.

She’s getting the chance to answer the girls’ comments that went on about her behind her back.  She wants everyone to know she loves kids and totally wants them.  I guess they misunderstood something she said at one point and were talking about it behind her back.  That made her upset.

Now Carly jumps in (shocking).  Carly is trying to defend what she told Chris.  She says she was the third girl to tell Chris that Britt didn’t want to move to Arlington.  Then Carly starts rehashing the things Britt said.  Now Britt has to defend her thoughts that she WOULD be cool moving to a tiny town that Chris is from.

Britt is really emotional, she seems to still have feelings for Chris.

OMG they keep talking over each other… hard to follow!  Several girls seem to have some issues with Britt.  They think she was flip-flopping between what she told them and what she told Chris in private.

Chris Harrison steps in to end the bickering and redirect.  He asks Britt what she came on the show for.  She says she came on for love and she thinks that she was “this close.”  She is almost crying again.  She does seem like she is acting a bit at this point…

Britt cries more to Chris “off camera.”  Does this mean it’s real?  Not sure.  She may be acting…

She sits down and it’s obvious some girls don’t like her.  The one sitting next to her ignores her completely, while another offers a comforting hand on her shoulder.

On to:

 

Kelsey

(this girl bugs me…) “isn’t my story amazing, it’s tragic.  But it’s.. amazing.”  Ew, the really awkward forced kiss.

And then the ?panic attack? that leads to more special attention time for her from Chris.

LOL replay of the girls happy excitement when they are “immeasurably blessed” that Kelsey is OFF THE SHOW!  I think a few of us in the audience were feeling a bit of that ourselves as well.

OMG she is saying that being on this show for her was like when her husband died; she is saying things along that vein.  That seems like she is being very manipulative in order to gain sympathy…

Chris H. is giving Kelsey a chance to set things right.  Kelsey apologizes to Ashley for the things she said in anger as a response to her betrayal and seemed genuine.  Ashley seemed to accept the apology, but we are on a commercial…

…We’re back.. Juelia says Kelsey is the fakest person ever.  Juelia also had her husband die.  Now another woman talks about her father dying.  They both felt Kelsey was very fake and calculated.  They’re not alone…

Ashley might not accept her apology.  Chris H. asks her, well didn’t you also talk badly about Kelsey behind her back?  Ashley is like, “well… yeah lol.”

Jillian speaks up to defend Kelsey when others question if her marriage was even real.  Jillian is a very compassionate person.  And her earrings are AWESOME.

Kelsey cries and explains how hard it was to go through losing her husband.  She seems honest and genuine.  I think she is just a very different type of person than many others are and she is misinterpreted for that reason.  Britt* speaks up and tells the others they really need to stop saying things like Kelsey made her husband up (even if they are wondering about that); it just isn’t the right thing to do.  Ashley seems too young to understand?  But she seems to start to understand as she realizes Kelsey is for real.

We should remember compassion for others who are different.  Good reminder here.

 

Let’s talk Ashley S. says Chris

.…comedic relief time!    He says he has never seen someone like her before…

LOL it IS funny!  She brings Chris H. an onion lol (because she kept going on about an onion and its layers on the show)!  He says it’s the best (and only) gift he’s ever gotten from one of the girls on the show.  Haha, he has a sense of humor.  She said she has started growing her own onions since the show.  For real..

When he asked her what was the deal with the pomegranate tree, she said she thought the tree looked fake (I can relate, we don’t see that kind of thing around here either) to explain why she was acting so goofy.

Her dress is awesome…

Funny jokes from the show, her with an ax and Chris Soules saying he doesn’t want to get murdered or something… lol.

Chris H. invites her to join “Bachelor in Paradise” and the crowd goes wild chanting “DO IT!  DO IT!  DO IT!”  Ashley S. doesn’t give an answer… we are to be held in suspense.

 

Ooo it’s Jade’s turn!

Chris S. seemed to really like Jade, until she told him she posed for playboy, and then showed him the pictures …and the video… ugh.  AWKWARD JADE.

https://sliceiconic.com/2015/02/17/bachelor-gossip-jade/

Jade wants to ask Chris if he let he go because of the “nude modeling” or what?  She read on his blog that he felt like she wasn’t the girl that he thought that she was.  She was crushed, and is still upset talking about it now.  She wanted honesty, especially after she was so honest and trusting with him.

She wants closure.

 

Now on to Kaitlyn.

She says felt blindsided when Chris let her go.  Especially after he told her he was “falling in love with her.”  His favorite phrase that episode…  and btw when did they change it and allow the Bachelor to say how they feel?  They always used to make them stay silent about that.  Hmm, I feel like I missed something…

Up next, The Bachelor himself, Chris Soules.  It’s about to get juicy.

 

Chris Soules and Britt

They hug, it’s so sweet.

She wants to figure out what happened.  She was confused.  He says it wasn’t due to what Carly said, but to an overall lack of compatibility.  She says a bunch of nice stuff. It doesn’t seem to really flow with what she was expressing before…?  It didn’t really feel genuine.  Now I’m really not sure about her.  I think maybe she was just faking it to be on tv.

 

Chris S. and Kaitlyn

She wants to know what happened after he acted like he was really serious about her.  He says he has no “true explanation.”  He says he was “literally falling in love with three women,” and then something like “it was like throwing darts at a dart board.”  How ROMANTIC!  lol 🙂  Glad I’m not her.  Maybe it’s a farmer thing?

 

Chris S. and Jade

She confronts him, nicely.  She believed what he said, but now she’s not really sure.  He looks at her, no expression on his face…  She was upset (and still is) that he said he was “disturbed” by how different she seemed to him versus what her family told him about her.

He says that he was telling her the truth that it wasn’t about the playboy stuff she did/showed him.  Maybe I spaced out but I didn’t really hear much of anything helpful out of him in this case.  Again, this match-up seemed a bit fake and scripted, though Jade certainly seemed genuinely upset earlier… she was too easily placated by him when she confronted him.

Maybe what people say about the reality shows being scripted is true.

 

Back to Chris H.

Now, for some out-takes.  Yikes Chris S. has a weird laugh…  apparently, it’s like a dolphin.

Some out-takes are funny.  Some are a bit odd.

And that’s the show everybody!  They ask you to tune in next week for the, guess what, dramatic season finale.  😉

Girls, What’s Going to go Down on Monday’s episode of “The Bachelor, The Women Tell All?!”

The Bachelor Gossip, framedby,

Suzanne Coleman

 

It sounds like people are really ready to see some re-matches on the upcoming episode of “The Bachelor, the Women Tell All.”  Let’s take a look at the possible line-up:

 

Carly vs. Britt

Carly was told to take a hike after she told Chris that Britt was lying to him.  Did she care that she went home?  Not really.  She was more excited that Britt was sobbing outside of the mansion after she was let go.  Geez, where is the humanity??

Carly was saying in the limo on her ride outta there something like, why can’t I find someone and be happy?  Maybe it’s because you have no compassion for other people???  I don’t know girl…

Check out what I had to say before on good-ole Carly here:

https://sliceiconic.com/2015/02/19/is-carly-from-the-bachelor-a-sociopath/

and about Carly and Britt:

https://sliceiconic.com/2015/02/17/bachelor-gossip-carly-and-britt/

 

Kelsey vs. … Everyone??

Now, one girl I didn’t write about before because I have just recently started this whole blogging thing (and I am liking it!) was Kelsey.  But wow, there certainly is a LOT to say about this girl, now isn’t there?   I don’t know, maybe she is smart, but that doesn’t explain why she was SO WEIRD.

She was so manipulative and tried to control everything that happened.  I mean, she told Chris that her husband had died just so he would feel bad sending her home (not to like, let him get to know her better or something like that)…and then afterward she looks right into the camera, smiling, and says something like, “my story is so great” (her husband died, yeah, that sure is “great”…),”it’ll get me what I want” (to stay on the show).  Wow.  Not healthy or normal behavior Kelsey, sorry to say…  Most people also show some kind of emotion when talking about someone they loved that has died… and they don’t use their “story” to get men they obviously don’t really care about to keep them on a dating show!  (Can you hear me shouting there?  Yeah, well I am…a little bit.)

It’ll certainly be interesting to see what all goes down between Kelsey and the other women who were basically trapped in the house alongside her for weeks.  Yikes, that would be stressful, don’t you think?  And ew, since we’re on the topic of strange, what did you think about that forced kiss between her and Chris when she went to see him in his room?  OMG, so creepy… was I the only one who felt that way?  Let me know in the comments, PLEASE!

 

Jade vs. Chris

I am interested to see what Jade is going to say.  I think she was an interesting young lady.  She is certainly beautiful and has what seemed to be a really good personality.  I think there probably won’t be too much drama around her and how she told Chris she was a stripper and then showed him the naked pictures of herself…

Um, THAT was awkward!  Lol we’ll see if they bring it up again!

Here is what I had to say about good old Jade:

https://sliceiconic.com/2015/02/17/bachelor-gossip-jade/

 

I think those are going to be the biggest possible conflicts we will see on the show this Monday night.  It will be interesting to see how it all plays out!  See you there!

Is Carly from “The Bachelor” a Sociopath?

 

The Bachelor Gossip, framed

by,

Suzanne Coleman, MD

 

She’s been called “evil.”  She’s been called a “bully.”  But, what is she really?

Well, we can’t really tell just from some clips of her, because you know how editing can make someone seem like something they’re not, but what we saw in those clips does give us an idea of what kind of a person she might be.  Let’s talk about what behavior we see in those clips.

She seems to lack empathy.  This means that she seems to have no heart, and doesn’t seem to feel for other people, and for what they are going through.  This is not normal.

She seems to enjoy watching other people suffer.  This is not normal.

She seems to do things to make other people suffer.  This is not normal.

She seems to manipulate Chris Soules, and seems to try to manipulate the other girls, so that they will all hate Britt.  This is not normal.

She jumps all over one thing that Britt said and can’t seem to understand that people can say things about something and then change their minds after they learn more about it.  Carly seems really rigid and inflexible in her beliefs.  That is not normal.

What do all of these behaviors have in common?  They are behaviors that you can see in someone who is a sociopath.  Now, I want to be clear, this isn’t saying that Carly is a sociopath, we don’t have enough information to make that type of assessment.  But it is important for everyone to understand that “bullies” and “mean girls” can have behaviors characteristic of sociopaths and other types of psychopaths.  “Sociopath” and “psychopath” are terms that refer to people with types of mental illnesses that are called personality disorders.

The medical term for sociopath is “anti-social personality disorder.”   There are several types of personality disorders, all of which can cause problems in relationships, but anti-social personality is one of the worst.  Approximately one out of every 75 men, and one out of every 300 women is a sociopath.  People with anti-social personality disorder can be very destructive to those around them; they often seriously disrupt families, businesses, organizations, governments, and society in general.  And they are all around us.

How do you know when you are dealing with a sociopath?  Sometimes it can be hard to tell because some of them are very intelligent and hide their bad behaviors very well.  On the other hand, there are the ones that aren’t trying to hide their behaviors.  Sometimes people call them assholes, and sometimes people call them jerks.  Sometimes people just don’t know what to call them, they are so completely abnormal in their behavior, it leaves others speechless.

But whether they are easy to identify or not, sociopaths do things that other people would not.  Some deliberately hurt other people for their own personal entertainment.  Some spread malicious lies behind other people’s backs in order to cause chaos and disruption.  Some act in a calculated manner to ruin people’s relationships, their reputations, their jobs, and more.  Sociopaths live as though the law and the rules do not apply to them, and that they can do whatever they want and get away with it.  Ethics don’t exist in their world.

And to top it all off, some sociopaths will find the horrible things that they are doing to be really funny.  And they will enjoy planning and executing them, like it’s a game.  You can often find them smirking to themselves as they plot against you, literally.  If you see any of these behaviors in someone, think sociopath.

An interaction with a sociopath will often elicit a strongly negative reaction from you, and you may not be able to figure out why you are feeling so upset.  It might be because you can sense that they are violating your boundaries, or that they are showing their lack of concern for right and wrong.  Pay attention to those feelings, and remember this article if you ever encounter anyone like this.  It’s usually best to stay away from them if you can.  But if you can’t, it may be helpful to directly confront their behaviors in front of a group of other people who can witness what happens (unless they are sociopaths too).  Otherwise the sociopath will keep on manipulating and lying and playing their evil little games behind everyone else’s backs.

Bachelor Gossip, Carly and Britt

The Bachelor Gossip, framed

 

by,

Suzanne Coleman, MD

 

Carly and Britt… Ah… Carly and Britt…

What an uh-humm interesting duo.  I wonder what the other girls really thought about these two.  The show seemed to show only Carly’s opinion, as she manipulated everyone else around her into agreeing with her.  Or wait, maybe that was a bit of bullying?  What do you think?  She certainly seemed to be a bit obsessed over Britt didn’t she?  And with trying to hurt her.  That sounds like a bully to me.

Personally, I was glad to see her get the boot.  Especially after the show showed her saying how she didn’t care if she left the show as long as something else happened (can’t remember what it was anymore, but I’m pretty sure it had to do with Britt…).  She clearly wasn’t there for Chris, she didn’t have the right intentions for being on the show, and she was clearly enjoying bullying Britt.  Not.  Cool.

Britt is gorgeous.  She did seem self-absorbed, but she wasn’t mean or evil to anyone and didn’t deserve to be treated so badly in my opinion.  Yes, the night where she interrupted Kaitlyn getting the rose was totally wrong, but I can understand what prompted her.  I guess there could have been more going on behind the scenes then we saw… that’s true.

I guess both girls have some room to grow, I just hope they look back on this time and realize that for themselves.  I would think of it as an opportunity to become a better person.  What do you think?  Add your voice in the comments.
