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.  😉

I hereby declare January 1st as the FIRST OFFICIAL ANNUAL “UNFRIEND DAY!”  On this day we are all free to unfriend all of those CRAZY, ANNOYING, BORING, whatever “FRIENDS” we have added over the years on facebook and have realized that we just don’t want to keep them around anymore.

No more “custom” posting, hiding posts, making secret groups, now you can feel free to come out in the open and say “I am going to unfriend all of you suckers!”  LOL!  Ok, maybe not quite like that, but… I say go for it.  National Unfriend Day has now gone OFFICIAL!

Wouldn’t life be just that much more awesome without having to scroll by the endless political posts of those obsessive-compulsive types?  What about no longer seeing loopy, goofy posts by those schizotypal personalities, oh boy!  Yes, yes it would be MUCH more awesome.  And this day lets you do just that WITHOUT ANY GUILT!

That’s right, this day is 100% GUILT-FREE!  No one can ever come back to you and whine “why did you unfriend me!?” and go and badmouth you to all of your mutual “friends.”  Nope, not anymore!  National Unfriend Day is the PERFECT way to get them out of your life, no strings attached.  Go for it!

This way all of those narcissists who never ONCE commented on or liked ONE of your posts, but expect your COMPLETE attention on their incessant self-centered posts are GONE from your life!  And that’s GREAT!

Go ahead and enjoy your “unfriend” clicking this January 1st, you even get a whole DAY OFF for it!  It’s PERFECT!  And when you’re done, sit back, let out a huge sigh of relief and give me a smile, that’s all the thanks I need.  🙂

The Deceivers

Subject of facebook relationship controversy, Manti Te’o. Image courtesy of Hoosierguy Jeff.

Hearing about how Manti Te’o was deceived on facebook immediately made me think of what happened to us.  You should know, he wasn’t the only one being manipulated and lied to.  Here’s our story:

I met a woman on facebook, let’s call her Beth.  She and I became friends through a mutual friend.  Over the last couple of years we all got to know each other through facebook.

So one day out of nowhere, Beth starts writing about her poor friend’s daughter and how she was mugged and ended up in the ICU.  It was a horrible story, and it got her a lot of attention on facebook.  Everyone was so worried about her and her friend, and her friend’s child.  The dramatic story continued on facebook for a few days, until the poor girl just couldn’t fight anymore and died.

The girl’s parents (Beth’s friends) were horribly distressed, as you can imagine.  They decided to fly to Tibet and scatter their daughter’s ashes there in the mountains.  Beth posted detailed accounts on facebook of how they went there to do this.  We were told about how the girl’s ashes were ceremonially scattered and the parents felt good about doing “right by their daughter” (though I’m not sure why they had to go to Tibet to do that).  The daughters amazingness was discussed at length for a few weeks.  During this ordeal, the poor girl’s parents facebook friended many of Beth’s friends, including me, even though we had never had any real interaction with them on facebook before.

After the ashes were scattered on mountain high, there were no further posts by the girl’s parents seen on facebook at all.  Months passed with no further posts by Beth about the ordeal either.  Then we suddenly see a post saying that the father of the girl who was killed just had a heart attack in the remote mountains of Tibet.  Wait, he’s still there?  Months later?  Hmmm, that’s strange…

There was an elaborate description of how rescuers had to fly to the mountains with a helicopter to try and save him, but they were too late and he died in the mountains.  It was of course devastating for Beth.  Again we heard about how awful it was for her and the wife of the man who just died.  This went on for a few days. Then, again, silence from the wife and Beth never mentioned it again.

A month or so later, I heard from our mutual friend, through whom I had met Beth.  It was then that I found out that Beth had invented all of the drama, the daughter wasn’t attacked, wasn’t put in the ICU and didn’t die.  We are not even sure she was real at any point.  The father and mother never went to Tibet to scatter her ashes, and the father didn’t have a heart attack high up in the mountains, away from medical assistance.  Wow.

Beth had invented all of these stories, assumedly to get attention.  She had drawn dozens of people into her fake drama, making everyone feel sorry for her and her friends, and upsetting many people.  She had created fake profiles for the girl, her mother and her father and used them to friend her friends to create an entire web of lies.  Once it was discovered, there was a big uproar about all of her deceptions and about how many people she had affected with them.  There were theories about whether or not she was crazy, a pathological liar, or just someone who wanted attention and didn’t know how to get it in a healthy way.  We really don’t know the answers to those questions.

Once she was found out and confronted, she apologized for her schemes, but it just served as a reminder to be careful with whom you interact in this world.  You never really do know anyone, even the people you know in person.  There is always the chance you are dealing with a psychopath.  There are many people who will do whatever it takes to get them what they want or need, and they don’t care if they hurt anyone else in the process.

Manti Te’o is surely much more famous than any of us, but we all fell into a similar trap of someone’s lies and deceit.  If it hasn’t happened to you yet, that’s great, I hope it never does.  Let this story serve as a warning to you to be on your toes; it really is happening to lots of people out there, it is real, so be careful.
