Crazy Shi*’s Going Down

The Bachelor Gossip, framed

Suzanne Coleman

Ok guys let’s talk Bachelor!  What did you all think of tonight’s episode?  It’s FINALLY getting INTERESTING!

I’m going to jump around a bit, so hang on.  I want to start with Lace.  You remember her, the girl who keeps telling us she isn’t “crazy?”  Yeah, her.  So I wrote on fb last week that people need to just give her a chance, she is clearly working on herself and I commend her for that.  I know SO many people who should be as brave and insightful as she is, but haven’t taken that next step yet to reach out and get some help with their issues.  We all have them.  Counseling can be the most amazing thing that has ever happened in your life, I’m not kidding, so if you’re thinking about it, take that next step and give it a chance.  Just remember, not every therapist/psychologist is going to be someone you will want to work with, if you get one you don’t like, just try another one.  Trust me.

So what happened with Lace?  Well, at the end of tonight’s episode, Lace pulls Ben aside and tells him that she just isn’t feeling it.  She needs to take some time to focus on herself before she can be in a relationship with anyone.  Smart woman.  She says she has a tattoo somewhere on her that says something like “you can’t truly love anyone else until you truly love yourself.”  Ah, beautiful words.  So Lace walks away from the insanity (and you’ll see, there certainly was some insanity tonight), tears in her eyes, off to work for a better and brighter future for herself.  Good luck girl!

As a side note, Lace is the second girl to already ditch Ben!  While this is probably the most realistic (to real life I mean) season so far, where girls reject guys they don’t like, and don’t all sit around waiting for that ONE guy’s attention… with Ben’s issues of being “unlovable” I worry a bit about him.  But I think he’s making some good connections with other girls at this point so he’s probably (hopefully) more focused on those positives.  Like Jubilee.

You all know Jubilee right?  What a gorgeous woman OMG.  (Except for me personally I’m not a fan of the tattoos, but it’s her body…)  She was telling the other girls that before the last one-on-one date card arrived that she was pretty sure Ben wasn’t into girls like her, complicated girls with LAYERS.  She might be right, it’s kind-of the Bachelor theme to generally have lots of more superficial types of people.

That day’s date card comes and it’s for her!  She is floored and yells out “YES!” or something like that but then quickly realizes the other girls will be sad so she apologizes for that.  Hard situation to be in, glad I’m not there!

For their date Ben has a helicopter fly in and land on the Bachelor patio to pick them up.  Crazy, right?  I’ve been in one once and I was freaking scared, that’s for sure.  Luckily the pilot was awesome, a war veteran, shout out to you dude.

When Ben and Jub are walking to get in the helicopter Jubilee is scared and she says “anybody else want to go on my date?!” to the other girls as a joke, a way to release the stress of the fear of flying.  The producers show that the other girls, some of them atleast, are pissed off by her saying that because they thought she was rubbing the date in their faces.  Um, no, she was joking.  It was pretty obvious, at least to me.  Maybe it’s a cultural thing?  I don’t know.  Amber seemed to have a bee up her a** about that and everything else “Jubilee” for the rest of the night.  I don’t know what her deal is, I don’t even remember her from her original season…

So Ben and Jubilee go off on their awesome ride and she has a great time with him.  They end up really talking and she opens up about her past.  She was adopted… AND I DON’T KNOW THE REST because damn it I was getting my dinner and MISSED IT!!!  I know, what kind of a blogger AM I?  Sorry 😦  [I hope you can fill in the blanks below for me and everyone else.]

So right after she really opens up I walk back in the room and Jubilee is all sad and Ben says how much he really likes her because she is REAL and opens up and shares her truths with him (awesome!).  He says he LIKES complicated, deep people.  Wow, that’s great for her since that’s the VERY thing that she was worried about all day.

They get all cuddly together, and we wonder, will it last?

Back at the house, Amber and some of the other girls (sorry I can’t remember which ones were into this drama) all jump on the “we hate Jubliee” train.  It’s not because she got the date and is beautiful with insane curves, it’s because she’s inconsiderate or whatever, so they SAY.  While that is stewing, Ben comes in for the evening and has something to say.

Ben tells all of the girls that two people he cares about were just killed in an accident (sorry for your loss Ben) and the room gets sad.  He starts talking with the group of girls and Olivia (shockingly, I know) grabs him first to keep him all to herself.  No control issues THERE….

She starts telling him about her ugly ankles, I’m not kidding!  And she says nothing about his loss.  He’s clearly disappointed in her self-centered behavior, but in the end, HE FREAKING PICKS HER ANYWAY (last rose)!  Ugh.. AND he lets the super cute girl Jami go!  Oh well, it is HIS life after all.

So after a bit, Jubilee grabs him and takes him over to a private massage table that she went out of her way to set up for him, apparently he had told her that his favorite thing IN THE WORLD was getting a massage.  She, like a good friend who listens, remembered that he said that and set it up for him.  Seriously, can I marry her?  (jk I’m straight, but you get the idea.)

She gives him a short massage and he is super happy and feels much better afterwards.  While at the same time the other girls are literally shooting silver daggers out of their eyes across the garden at Jubilee.  Yes, literally, it was awesome, very sci-fi.

Well, Jubilee taking more personal time with cutie Ben was the LAST straw for insecure Amber who starts a mini-riot amongst the other girls while they sit on their butts waiting around for Ben to notice them… um, just a note, TAKE SOME INITIATIVE!  It doesn’t make you aggressive to be assertive, you need to stand up for what you want, or you may never get it.  Now back to our regularly scheduled blogging.

Amber can’t take the stress anymore though she also has a rose and is safe tonight (she got the group date rose).  She gets up and almost runs over to where Jubliee is just peacefully hanging out by herself.  Jubliee is feeling a bit apart from the other girls already, she has a history and her own issues which are coming into play here (see my note above about counseling being very helpful).  Jubilee is isolating herself a bit, which isn’t helping as the others seem to be using her pullback from them to increase the target on her back.

Amber comes over to where Jubilee is and says “Come.”  Seriously, like you might speak to a dog.  That was not cool.  Amber, please work on your interpersonal skills, thank you.  Jubliee gets upset because she feels like she is being corralled by Amber and brought to the slaughter by the group of girls waiting for her to show up with Amber.  So Jubilee goes upstairs and starts getting upset, Ben hears her and kindly checks to see what is happening.  He is talking with her when Amber walks in and, instead of trying to understand what Jubilee is dealing with, Amber starts in on her again, attacking her and her actions.  Again, Amber, get a bit of help on these interpersonal things, please.

Ben ends up stopping the impending nightmare and separates the two to their separate corners.  They both survived, this round.  We’ll see how it goes next time!

I have to say one more thing about Olivia.  This is my first blog this season so unless you have seen my fb posts, you might not know how annoying Olivia’s mouth is.  …I never thought I’d use that phrase about another person, but there it is.  She literally looks like a scary skeleton, when she just sits there, fake-looking white teeth (too many of them too) and a gaping black hole of a mouth that takes you into who knows where… the dungeon is calling, screams are heard and children go suddenly missing…  chains rattle…

So who is/are your picks for the long haul here?  I like Jubilee, Jo Jo, and Emily.  I have to give a girl-to-girl shout out to Emily who rocked the soccer field like a pro tonight!  That woman is wild and dedicated, great job, you’d be an asset to anyone’s team.

How are you all liking thie season so far?  Better than the last one?  Are you watching the after show too?  I have been, though it’s not consistently interesting (sorry guys, I’m honest).  I did like that actress who was on tonight though, Paget Brewster, girl, you cracked me up 🙂

Talk to you all later, hope you had fun, see you next week!

Kaitlyn Loves Ian!? Say it isn’t so!

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

by,

Suzanne Coleman

Yeah, you’re right, it isn’t.

I think it went more like this:

Ian, wow, you’re too sexy for your shirt.  Really.  Well, at least you think so.  It’s sad to see a man who is so superficial.  We’re all super glad you get a lot of sex, really, we are.  We just really hope you are using a condom each and every time.

It’s also super important to us that your ex-girlfriend was attractive, because you know, that is really all women are for, objects to be admired.  Good thing you can prove your worth by telling us you had a pretty girl, phew.  Now you can die happy.

I think it’s great that Ian let Kaitlyn know what he are all about, I’ll bet she is SO happy.  Better to see the snake in front of you now, than to bring it home, let it into your life, and then watch it slither away, leaving you alone with your kids.

By the way, for those of you who don’t know, Ian is represented by the show as a classic narcissistic personality.  That’s a mental illness people!

So now on to some more pleasant topics.

Shawn B., mmm!  He is a good-looking guy who seems to be real.  I like that he and Kaitlyn are connecting, I can see that going somewhere for both of them.  I thought it was so cute when she said that when he told her that he was falling in love with her, that it felt like he was her husband telling her he loved her for the first time!  Aw!  🙂

It was also nice to see that JJ seems to be a decent person.  Now that he’s removed from the “Clint Monster,” maybe we can see what he’s really all about.  I think he just got sucked into a bad relationship with that guy.  Clint is really a scary dude, read all about it here:  https://sliceiconic.com/2015/06/08/clint-ick-yuck-ew/

Overall, tonight’s episode was a little bit bland, Kaitlyn’s relationship with Nick cooled off a bit, though they did have a few smoking-hot kisses that they were able to sneak in when they were alone.  I wonder if theirs is a flame-hot-and-then-die type of relationship, whereas the feelings she has for some of the other guys may be deeper and last longer.

Who are you all rooting for?  Let us know in the comments!  Who would you give YOUR rose to at this point?

Omg you guys I just read that none other than Miss Taraji P. Henson who plays our favorite girl Cookie on “Empire” will be hosting Saturday Night Live coming up on April 11th!  Omg (I know, I said it again, but it’s soooo deserving!) this live wire will be cracking us up I just know it.  I saw her on late night TV a few weeks ago and she is HILARIOUS.

I know this is one episode of SNL that I won’t want to miss!  I wonder if she’ll be bringing any of her crazy co-workers along with her?  That would be the bomb!  Maybe they could work in a little surprise singing number, or two, for us?  Hmmm, what do you think?  Would you watch that?  I know you would!  Lol!

How about a few surprise guests during the skits?  You know, some pop-ins?  That would be cool!  Maybe some Terrence Howard, or Bryshere Gray will show their handsome selves?  Or how about Jussie Smollett, Serayah, and Trai Byers?  I can’t help it but I want to hear that lady sing some more!  Now, you know if they brought out Ta’Rhonda, that girl can get things going!  Her and Teraji together are like fire-crackers, popping and going off, you know what I mean!  I can’t wait 🙂

Alright fans of the House of Empire, stay-tuned here for all of the latest topics and if we hang in there together you know we can all make it through to the fall when our favorite crazy drama starts back up again!

The Bachelor Makes His Final Pick, or Does HE?

The Bachelor Gossip, framed

by,

Suzanne Coleman

 

It’s finally here girls!  “The Bachelor” Chris Soules is faced with “the biggest decision EVER!” when he has to pick between two girls he sort-of knows to be his future fiancée.  What WILL HE DO?!

I’ll be live blogging the event like I did for “The Women Tell All” so here we go (refresh the page as needed)!

The show starts out with Whitney at Chris’ house, she’s putting on a good show.  She says all the right things and does all the right things, and everybody just LOVES her!  Is that real?  (I already can’t stand her voice… I am trying…  If you haven’t already seen my article on her VOICE, check it out here!  It’s a must read:  https://sliceiconic.com/2015/02/18/bachelor-gossip-whitney-and-that-voice/)

Then after Whitney is gone, the family asks Chris about Becca, and he gets all choked up.  Aw… 🙂  It seems like his family is already rooting for Whitney though.  Come on guys, give Becca a chance at least!

It seems like Chris is under a lot of pressure to marry from his family.  I hope he doesn’t jump into something he really isn’t feeling, that wouldn’t be right for him or for whomever he chooses.  He sure has a lot of guys pulling for him though, that’s nice to see.

Commercials…

And we’re back!  The family is chatting about meeting Becca today.  They are worried that he isn’t totally sure which girl he wants, yet.  He is talking about how the girls would be willing to move to Iowa.  That whole thing seems like it’s really one-sided to me, it’s all about Chris and not about the other person’s needs or interests.  If you’re in love, you’re in love, it isn’t a business arrangement where you’re hiring a new partner… but that’s just me.

Now it’s Becca’s turn.  Aw, here she is, so cute.  They  kiss.  She’s nervous, of course, to meet his family.  It’s a critical moment for their relationship.  Wow big group!  That would make anyone nervous.

Chris is saying he loved Becca’s family and he thinks they would mesh together well.  They apparently loved him when he was at her home town visit.

Becca tells his family what she thought about their town.  It was… small lol.  She’s cracking up his family joking about the weekend entertainment in their town being everybody heading out to hang at the post office lol.  She says she’ll tell her family not to e-mail but to write her letters instead…

Becca opens up with the ladies in Chris’ family, telling them her concerns about how she isn’t ready to start having kids right away.  She then says she wouldn’t move to Arlington (his home town) until she is SURE that it’s right for HER.  I see the family close off when she says that.  Maybe I’m imaging it…  Ooops, nope.  The family says they don’t want someone who isn’t totally sure.  Well…

One of the ladies says “well she (Becca) has to give you something.”  Seriously, like uprooting her life and moving to another state isn’t a freaking huge deal?  Hmmm…  I think it’s a huge deal.  The family’s viewpoint is so one-sided.  I can see this not going well with Becca.  I think she’d be better off with people who respect her as an individual and not just as someone’s wife.

Becca has a private chat with Chris’ mom, who seems very kind and sincere.  His mom points out that Becca’s feelings just might mean that she is already in love with him, and maybe she isn’t ready to really deal with that yet.  But personally, I think it could be lust or attraction and not love, that makes you feel the things she is feeling…

Chris and Becca kiss goodbye.  She says, that thinking of not being with Chris forever is just scary to her.  There are lots of decisions to be made and they will need to talk, she says.

She’s gone and they’re back to the family.  That guy in the beard is a wise man.  He says that you can’t necessarily analyze love, it’s a gut feeling in your heart and you just have to go with it.

Here with Chris H., he sees what I did, that Chris S.’ family seems to be leaning strongly towards the girl who’s ready to start popping out those little farmer babies!  🙂  (That’d be Whitney.)

Aaaaannndddd, we’re back.  Chris H. says we should get ready for something shocking that’s never happened before.  A girl next to him covers up her smirk, yes Chris we HAVE heard that one before!  But then he says, Chris S. has one last date with each of the girls to help him make a decision…  ok Chris H., we’ll give you that one.  Though it’s not really what I’d call “SHOCKING”…

So here we are Chris S. and Becca somewhere very private together.  What do you want Chris? she asks.  “I want everything that you can give me…”  She says that she is “falling in love” with him.  He really wants to know if she can see a real future together with him in his life…  how does she feel?  Good question Chris!

She’s not ready.  It seems like she wants to know the future, that it will work out for sure before she commits to moving to Arlington.  That’s smart, but also maybe too fearful.  She can always move there and then change her mind later.  She is feeling the pressure and getting upset…

Maybe she IS too young for him.

He asks her “why don’t you feel like you are in love with me?”  She doesn’t have a good answer and is just confused it seems.  She says that maybe her confusion is because this is the first time that she’s felt this way and been in this situation.

The one thing that she is sure about is that she wants him.  That’s the one thing.

He’s doing a good job of trying to understand where she is really at with their relationship, but I think she just needs more time to learn and grow to be in the place that he needs her to be.  Maybe 2-3 years… what do you guys think?

Now, she identifies that she can’t picture what SHE would do in Arlington.  She is a good person, smart and thinking about her future and what will make her happy.

Becca is so cute, I love her hair…

Chris is talking about how he is torn.  It seems like he knows Becca isn’t ready, and he isn’t really willing to wait.  I think he knows he has to let her go and that it’s going to hurt her and that’s why he’s really upset and torn up.

Now time for a commercial:  “Groove is in the heart” is playing… sure seems like a lot of good music from the old days is coming back…

It’s time for Chris’ final date with Whitney.  In a corn field, in winter… brrrrr!  Apparently it’s his farm.  His dad joins them and they climb on a giant piece of farm equipment.  They go out in the field and harvest corn.  He teaches her what they do with the corn.  He looks pretty happy to have her there with him.  Maybe the rumors are true and she is the one?

They take a romantic ride through the cornfields together and he shows her all of his land (eh, about 800 acres).  He takes her back to his place…  It’s a nice regular house.

She gives a speech about how it’s all so perfect and she knows it’s right and he’s right and … they kiss.  He looks very happy.  Looks like a match to me.

Back from another commercial.  Whitney is still telling him how she’s sure she wants to be with him and she’ll be happy in Arlington…  He said he’s pretty happy how things went with her and he’s pretty comfortable now…  i.e. he is going to pick her.  (At least that’s how it is seeming to me.)

She explains that this is how she would want to feel if she was in love with someone, HUH?  Wait you mean, you’re not in love with him?  Hmm.. maybe she is playing him and all of us too!

He asks her how she is so certain of them together.  She says she thought he was attractive on “The Bachelorette” so you know, that’s all she needed.  Jk, she starts out with that but then goes on and on about how she wants to be with him etc.   Ok, let’s move on, I’m sure I’m boring you with them by now…

Lol he’s so good with words.  🙂  They kiss some more.   She talks.  Semi-dramatic music plays ever-so-slowly in the background as she goes on and on and on… dramatic music comes to an end, the audience is clapping somewhat wildly.

And we’re back.  The camera pans over flat and not-very-interesting Iowa in the winter.  That’s ok Iowa, we’re not much better.  Chris is shown pondering without his shirt on.  Bonus.

More dramatic music plays.  Whitney is standing, thinking, in front of a pond.  Chris is shown staring out of his window into the sunrise.  There is a knock on the door, it’s a shocking surprise, the ring guy is here!

Chris’ voice is saying he’s actually still not sure which girl he wants to be with.  Uh oh…  the music is getting much more dramatic!  He then says, you’re not human if you don’t question who you’re going to spend the rest of your life with.  He’s bucking up!

The girls are getting all dressed up now, Becca’s dress is a gorgeous deep red and Whitney’s is a blue-purple gown.

HAHA!  they show that he’s going to propose in a barn, that’s hilarious.  It’s all fancified, but still, it probably smells like animals and hay.  I hope the girls are not allergic!  He says something about this is where he raises his pigs I think.  HAHA!  Hilarious.

[Since we’re on commercial I thought I’d let you know that the most searched terms for tonight’s blog have to do with…  you guessed it!  Whitney’s voice. 🙂 ]

oh GAWD Chris H. comes on and says  “stay tuned for ‘After the Final Rose’ because what happens there will CHANGE EVERYTHING.”  The whole audience groans.  He says it’ll be amazing…  Yeah, we’ll see Chris…  we’re totally on to you.

Here comes limo #1 while Chris S.’ voice runs over the images.  It’s Becca, red velvet dress.  Sweet.  Pretty scene with the light hitting her air and a bit of wind blowing in the microphones.  He’s saying “I don’t want to say goodbye…”   I wish my hair looked like that!  😉  (Hers, not his!  haha)

Chris is about to break Becca’s heart.  Aw, this is the hard part to watch.

He’s telling her how great they could be together.  Way to build her up before you destroy her.  He starts to cry.  She is starting to see, it’s not going to be her tonight.

“You’re not really ready,” he tells her.  “I have to go with my heart.”  She looks mad. No tears from her, yet.  He’s saying nice things to her about appreciating having met her family and “been with” her.

She’s so calm.  Wow.  She communicates so well.  She will be an amazing partner for someone one day, for real.  She says nice things back to him.  She’s got a great head on her shoulders, congrats to her family and to her.

He breathes a sigh of relief that she didn’t sob and wail and make it even harder than it probably already was.  They hug and walk out hand in hand into the light of the late-day sun.  Piano music plays slowly.  The camera shows that the final red rose, is not going to be shown in front of a velvet red dress.  The limo drives away, leaving Chris standing there, very much alone.

Becca is in the limo.  Will she cry?  Beautiful scene of the Iowa landscape.  Nope, no crying yet.  She’s so together.  Now they show her talking.  She thinks she’s “in a state of shock.”  She says she can’t process it right now.

She asks if she will ever find the right person if it wasn’t him.  Don’t worry honey, you will, just give it some time.

We’re back from commercial.  A horse neighs, Chris S. lets out a deep sigh as he waits alone in the barn, his breath showing in the cold air.  Whitney is driving up in the limo as a haze hangs over the top of the corn fields on either side of the road.

Whitney is very nervous and is having trouble breathing as she talks to Chris H. outside of the barn.  He sends her in with his traditional “good luck.”

She knows what she wants, she says, but it’s a two-way street.  She’s in the barn with Chris S. now, and she’s shaking and breathing with difficulty.  She looks cute.  She’s talking to him like a girl who’s about to get married.  Saying how she feels and how much she feels for him and has enjoyed their journey.

“I love you so much,” she says and kisses him.  He sighs.  She looks down.

He takes his turn to talk.  He says one of the best days of his life was when she got out of the limo in the beginning, and they got to crash that wedding.  He says his family’s reaction to her told him a lot.  Their relationship is “so natural” and it “feels so perfect,”  long pause… “and that’s what I want for the rest of my life.”

She relaxes and is so happy!

“I love you,” “will you marry me?” he says down on one knee.  “Absolutely” she says, “oh my god.”  He puts on the ring, she looks at it and is like, yeah that’s good, jk lol!  And then she kisses him.

They kiss a bunch, then he laughs that crazy laugh… and they sit together talking and kissing on a hay bale lol!  They are sitting with their legs hanging out of the side of a big opening in the red barn wall.  So cute!  What a great setting for a sweet proposal.

And he gives her … the final rose!   Stay tuned for more live blogging from “After the Final Rose!”  Thanks for being here.

Here it is, “After the Final Rose!”

Chris H. and Chris S. are talking.  It sounds like things are going well between Chris and Whitney.  So, I’m not yet sure what the massive surprise is going to be!  Maybe they already got married?  Maybe she is pregnant?  Hmmm… who knows!  Stay tuned. 🙂

Chris H. asks S. about Becca.  Were you really in love with her?  He tries to answer but has some trouble.  He says there were some great things about her, but in the end she just wasn’t where he needed her to be for it to move forward.  He explains that he is 33 years old and she wasn’t really there yet.

Becca joins Chris S. on the “hot couch.”  She says it was really hard to watch that episode back.  She felt it was really difficult for her near the end.  He said, heck yeah, same for me.

She really respected him for how he handled things at the end.  They both appreciated each other’s honesty.  So IMPORTANT!

Becca talks about her not wanting to ever mislead Chris during the process.  He appreciated that.  Becca jokes that maybe it was crazy for her to come on a show like this without having ever been in love!  Chris H. makes a joke about that and everybody laughs.

Chris says that they had an undeniable chemistry from day one.  Becca says she is very thankful that the show really taught her what to look for and that she can be open to finding love and not be so closed off.  Chris H. says he doesn’t think that Becca will have any trouble finding love after this and they all laugh and she says thanks.

Whitney comes out and she and Chris S. talk.  She shows the camera the pretty ring that he got her, nice!  She’s wearing a super cool sheer dress covered in a silvery print.  Love good fashion.  They seem super happy together, what more could anyone ask for?!  I guess those darn rumors about him picking her were right after all!  You never know… I sure wish people wouldn’t give the endings of shows away though.

Aw… she is describing how the final moment, the proposal, made her feel.

[During this, yet another, commercial break I want to give a big shout out to my Bachelor fans, you guys are THE GREATEST!  Thanks for reading my blog!   I’d love to hear your feedback, let me know what you like, what you don’t and if there are any other shows you want to have me blog about.]

And, we’re back!  Whitney is telling Chris how she didn’t watch the show, except for their dates.  She explains that she wouldn’t want to see the man she is in love with dating other women, plus she lived it.  She feels “confident in what they have.”  Smart lady.  She says she really appreciated how he made sure that the other girls were NOT the right ones before picking her, and how that makes her more confident in what THEY have between them.

Omg his parents come walking up the road after the proposal.  They are so very happy; his mom is crying.  They look like a very happy group of people.  She talks about how they’re going to be making some babies pretty soon!  lol

Now back to our host, Chris H.  He picks out Ashley S. (the goofy, spacey, weird girl from the season, you know, the onion and the pomegranate…) and asks her about whether she will be on “Bachelor in Paradise” and she says, maybe… I guess that’s a big commitment from her lol.  🙂  It was pretty awkward.  I guess that show will have a lot of good stuff to blog about lol if it’s anything like last season’s!

OOOooo back to Whitney.  Chris H. busts her for visiting Chris S.’ family.  She broke the rules, but she had a good time doing it she says.  I wonder what her contract says about that…

Oh no lol it’s Jimmy Kimmel.  Sometimes he’s funny, sometimes he’s more weird and creepy… to each their own I guess!  Jimmy takes all of the credit for making this match happen, unless it doesn’t work out.  🙂  He is funny tonight, so far.

He points to Ashley S. and says she thinks she’s on “The Price is Right” right now. lol.  Chris S. lets out a big dolphin laugh at that one.  I feel waves crashing around me.

It must be crazy for Chris and Whitney to be sitting next to someone that famous.  I guess that’s what happens with reality tv!

Jimmy throws out a bunch of one-liners, one disses Chris and the crowd goes “ooooo.”  Jimmy has a surprise for them.  Is this the “shocking surprise?!”  It’s a huge black and white COW holy crap!  Jimmy says he has named it Juan Pablo.  LOL!  “He doesn’t speak any English,” he says.  Funny.  How are they going to get THAT back to their house lol?!

Ok we’re back from commercial.  Chris H. is about to announce the new Bachelorette.  Will this also be what was rumored?  He says “The Bachelor” staff were split down the middle and couldn’t decide, so they’re throwing it out to us.  The options are:  Britt or Kaitlyn.  From the crowd’s response here I guess it’s Kaitlyn.  Aw, I was hoping for Becca.  Oh well, I know I’ll end up watching anyway.

Ooo, WAIT!  Chris H. says there will be TWO BACHELORETTES!  Ok, is he serious?  No WAY?!  Ok, Chris H.  THAT ACTUALLY IS SHOCKING!!  Finally.  lol 🙂

He goes on to say that the 25 men will decide which girl they want to be the Bachelorette on the first night!  Hoooooooly cow!  lol He says “sometimes I’m actually being honest when I say it’s going to be a shocking moment.”  Yes, Chris, yes you are.

After that Chris H. chats with both girls.  At one point, Kaitlyn says that both of the girls will be in the hot tub together at some point…. hmmm, the boys are all in now!

Gotta mention Kaitlyn’s dress, WOW gorgeous.  Very sparkly.  Britt’s is too.  Nice.

Chris reports “heated debates” behind the scenes about the two girls they were choosing between.  Well, I think it’s led to an interesting twist in the show.  Way to keep things interesting guys and gals over there at ABC!  Thanks for the entertainment, we are enjoying following it along with you all.

Chris H. signs off and reminds us that “Bachelor in Paradise” will air again this summer and we’d all better be there!

Have a great night all, thanks for following along with me, I hope that you enjoyed reading this LONG blog lol!  🙂  Take care of yourselves.

[Note, I’m watching Jimmy Kimmel on his show now.  He did a  funny bit on how they make the kissing sounds for each type of kiss on T.B.  Ok, I guess he’s funny 😉  I wish I had that job!  lol That would be fun.]

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:

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!

Empire Gossip: Last night’s episode, OOoo the Drama!

Empire Gossip, framed

by,

Suzanne Coleman

Ok guys, so what did you think about last night’s episode?  Pretty dramatic huh?  🙂  So much went down…

You know when they showed the preview last week of Cookie and Lucious MAYBE kissing, I was like, oo-ooh, do you think they will?  But then last night…  Haha, ok, well they certainly didn’t hesitate to get back to business now did they?

I think it’s good, sort-of…  It’s obvious that they have a real connection.  But I think it’s also obvious that he really hurt her in the past, and what the hell was that?  So to be letting him back in now, that is probably going to be a big mistake for Cookie in the future.  I mean, he already showed her what he thinks of her while abandoning her for SEVENTEEN YEARS while she was in prison!  Hel-lo girl!

I think a lot of the women out there know it can be hard to let go of that true love from your past, especially if there is real chemistry, even if he was an ass.  But, hopefully as we get older, we grow and learn from those mistakes and don’t let them happen again.  Right girls?  Um, Cookie?

Now on to some BUSINESS!  Does anybody else think it’s obvious that Cookie will be the one who gets to run Empire in the end?  I know, last night kind of made it more obvious, but it has seemed that way to me from day one.  She is IN CHARGE!  She is the smart one, she knows how to handle people, she knows her music and her artists, and she is clearly a great speaker, as we saw in the episode last night.  All good skills to have to run what is really HER company after all.  And let’s face it, not one of her sons has the skills to do it.  Even combined they don’t.

There is one thing that Cookie isn’t good at, and that is trusting the people she should.  That bit last night about Elle really bugged me, in SO many ways.  Elle worked hard to get clean from heroin and then Anika (what a FREAK) dopes her to get at Cookie to make her look bad.  I mean, seriously, SICK.  Felonious-sick.  And when this happens Elle TOLD Cookie she was clean and Cookie could see that she was clean, I mean, you could tell that Elle was on board with staying clean and working hard, so then why did Cookie just turn away from her so easily?  She sticks by “her man” after all of the crap he has pulled, but the person who has worked hard for her and shown her loyalty, Elle, she just blows off in a second?  That kind of bad decision-making might just turn around and bite her.

I hated to see Elle stabbed in the back like that, not only by her supposed supporter, Cookie, but also by Cookie’s damn jealous rival, Anika.  The show made it look like one of the security guards (I think that’s who that was) might have seen what happened, so hopefully it will come to light that Anika is evil, and Elle can get back into the business she is so good at, singing.

And Anika?  Anika needs to go.  To jail.

What do you think?
