The Bachelor – Juan Pablo: Episode Two Recap

The Bachelor – Juan Pablo: Countdown To Juan Pablo & Episode 1 Recap

And, here we go again, my peeps…miss me? I’ll be the first to admit, I needed this break.  Between Sean and Catherine (who I am still really uncomfortable (grossed out) with, as a couple) – and the train-wreck that was Dez and Brooks »»

The Bachelorette – Dez: At Long Last…The Grand Finale

Albeit, better late than never, I’ve come to a conclusion about this season:  I’m just not that into you. I don’t know if it’s because I just so happened to have missed blogging about a few episodes.  Or because I had to stay up super- »»

If you’ve watched one or two or fifteen seasons of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, then you probably know that the structure of this season has been different. The “Men Tell All” episode came early, and usually the episode with t »»

The Bachelorette: Dez - Episode Eight Review & The Men Tell All

The Bachelorette 2013 Episode 8 Review – Family Matters

The Bachelorette: Dez – Episode 7 Review

The Bachelorette 2013 Episode 7 Review – Madeira’s Bachelor Reunion

This week on The Bachelorette, Des and her five guys headed to the beautiful island of Madeira, off the coast of Spain. This show might be asinine, but it can make for some pretty good travel porn. I’m jealous! Des invited a few friends from h »»

The Bachelorette: Dez – Episode 6 Review

The Bachelorette 2013 Episode 6 Review – Viva Barcelona

This week, Desiree and the remaining eight guys were in Barcelona, Spain. This season has been pretty dull, despite more “villainous” characters than usual. How many guys have been sent home just for being jerks now? It feels like several »»

The Bachelorette: Dez - Episode 5 Review

The Bachelorette 2013 Episode 4 Review – Boardwalk Empress

The Bachelorette: Dez – Episode 2 Review

Let’s just call this episode White Boy Problems.  Between the embarrassing rap video debacle and the general sense of competition between the guys to outshine each other with stories of disease, abandonment and neglect, it’s a wonder Dez isn’t »»

The Bachelorette 2013 Episode 2 Review – Rap It Up

The Bachelorette: Dez - Episode 1 (Season Premiere) Review

Yee-HAW!!! I don’t know why I just said that.  I’m not from the South.  I don’t ride horses.  I don’t own a lasso.  I do however, own cowboy booties, and they’re really cute.  Is that good enough? Perhaps I meant Giddy-up.  As in le »»

The Bachelorette 2012 - Season Finale Review - Arie's Love Potion Didn't Work

Well guys, I don’t know about you but last night’s episode of The Bachelorette shocked me. Not so much with the outcome – I don’t read spoilers and, quite honestly did not know who she would pick. It shocked me because, for po »»

The Bachelorette 2012 - The Men Tell All Episode Review - Bros Without Roses

The Bachelorette 2012 Review – Emily Maynard - The Men Tell All Episode Review

The Bachelorette 2012 Review – Emily Maynard - Episode Nine

The Bachelorette 2012 - Hometown Dates Episode Review - There’s no Curacao for this Lovesickness

Wow, has this season flown by or what? Emily is down to only three guys on The Bachelorette, and it’s a close race. Early on, I thought Arie and Sean were sure bets for the final two. But last week complicated that. Sean clearly had the best family »»

The Bachelorette 2012 Review - Emily Maynard - Episode Eight

I have to admit, last night, I wasn’t really in the mood for this.  After an amazing long weekend with the ups of my son seeing his first fireworks show at the cottage, to the downs of hearing of Tom and Katie’s split (didn’t see that one comi »»

The Bachelorette 2012 Review - Emily Maynard - Episode Seven

This write-up could go one of two ways;  I could either deliver short, witty remarks generated by the one or two borderline amusing moments of last night’s episode, resulting in a leisurely read to be enjoyed over morning coffee or I could do my u »»
