Jason and Molly’s wedding was the latest installment of The Bachelor spin off shows last night. Molly got her fairytale wedding at ABCs expense, including getting to walk down the aisle to her favorite song “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” sung by Jason Castro (loved his rendition and the 2nd song he sang at the end of the wedding by the way!).

Several parts of this wedding show were much better than the Trista and Ryan show. The “Vegas bachelor/bachelorette” parties were actually much classier and did not include the drama of the wayward almost groom-to-be breaking his future bride’s heart by being found drunk under some anonymous woman’s lap. Jason and Molly “partied” but ended the evening laughing together before they parted ways until their wedding the next day. I also love that they were completely undaunted by the blowing winds and pouring rain on their heads as they exchanged their vows with the biggest grins on their faces. I know it is all “TV”… but this wedding seemed to have some “real” happy people joining their lives together.

What I was not a fan of was the usual parade of the “ghosts of Bachelor/Bachelorette past.” Honestly? Do we really need to see a cheeky Trista and jaw clinched Ryan any more? Do we need to see Deanna Pappas with her newest boyfriend? Or even that Charlie guy with one of the women he is dating but *not* engaged to? How about Jillian and Ed who also dodge the “when are you getting married?” question. Oh well! Can’t win ’em all! 😉

TTFN!

OK. Now simmer down out there! It’s not like that! SHEESH! 😉 Is that retro poster at the left from the first season of The Bachelorette? HA!! 😀

What I am referring to is that–without fail–whenever there is a girl on The Bachelor who finally confesses to the man who is choosing “his future wife” that season that she is “saving herself for marriage” invariably the dude says “I respect that” and then plants a wet one on the girl. However, what is also an expected outcome is that at the next rose ceremony she will be sent home! That is why I call it the virgin sacrifice. Sure enough, last night:

“Jake’s next one on one is with Corrie. The two go on a special date in San Francisco’s Golden State Park. Surrounded by aquariums full of exotic sea life, Corrie tells Jake that she is a virgin and plans on waiting until marriage. Jake is okay with that and seals it with their first kiss.”

But alas, it continually appears that the virgin confessions (on The Bachelor) are in fact the kiss of death! Jake does a pretty good job of looking sad when he sends the ladies packing. Oh well! The show is not exactly rocket science!  It’s just a “guilty pleasure.”

Speaking of kisses… on to much better thoughts about kisses. ♥ Here is one of my all time favorite songs about one of the most wonderful things about living… passionate kisses! ♥

Mary Chapin Carpenter: Passionate Kisses

“Do I want too much
Am I going overboard to want that touch
I shout it out to the night
“Give me what I deserve, ’cause it’s my right”
Shouldn’t I have this (shouldn’t I)
Shouldn’t I have all of this, and

Passionate kisses…”

ed_better_notEd better not f’ing disappoint me!”

Even though it may have seemed a little off-sides when Jillian said that in the recent Bachelorette finale (after sending two other cute, eligible men packing who were willing to propose to her) –unfortunately what she said seems strangely appropriate now.

Why?

Well, evidently stories are surfacing about two women who state that they were dating Ed during the show and/or even after the final proposal. These two other women have reportedly provided jillian_disappointedtext, email, and photo “proof” (including a detailed time-line and video at this link) of their “amazing connections” with Ed.

So far, the happy couple Jillian and Ed are equally sure about their reports that they are still a happy couple and going ahead with their marriage in about a year. Jillian reported that the story about the other two women is “nonsense.”

If these allegations turn out to be in any way true, this could trump the Jason and Melissa (Molly) debacle.

I am pretty much a romantic at heart, and still hope that Jillian and Ed could truly be wilted roseengaged in a happy relationship. (Trista and Ryan sure needed a break as ABC’s poster couple). Here’s hoping that Jillian’s final rose will not already be wilted on the vine!

finalroseLast night fans of The Bachelorette finally saw “after the final rose.” In previous seasons it was with dramatic anticipation that fans tuned in to see what may have happened to the “happy couple” once they hit the semi-real world after the final camera. Or, at least for the first clandestine 6-8 weeks during which ABC airs the newest season of the show.

Anyone who has followed The Bachelor/Bachelorette remembers how badly the last A.T.F.R. went with Jason Mesnick breaking up with his fiance Melissa on “live” TV. In fact, humor was circulating aboot the Twittersphere wondering if Jillian was going to “pull a Mesnick.” HA! In fact, the show started with a replay of Jason dumping Melissa on air and a gratuitous update about happily engaged she is to her fiance Ty.

atfrBack to the couple at hand. Contrary to previous A.T.F.R. couples, Jillian still seemed devoted to her decision to pick Ed, and Ed still seemed just as giddy to be the last man standing. Can it be true? Can this be the first happy couple since Trista & Ryan? (And thank goodness they did not parade those two on this show!). Even Deanna & Jesse had some strained body language at their A.T.F.R. But, Jillian and Ed appear naturally and equally happy.on_gma

Jillian and Ed finished taping this season of The Bachelorette in May and have evidently been seeing a lot of each other over the summer. They looked just as happy this morning on GMA (Ed often seemed to be looking a the monitor more than the host).

jill_ed_copperLater, on Regis & Kelly (with Anderson Cooper co-hosting) as they did during their proposal finale. Anderson Cooper asks Jillian how many guys she slept with– artfully dodged of course. Then they play a cute “newlywed type” game on the show. Finally a reference is made to the “hot dog test.” Evidently, Ed is a mustard guy. Let’s see what that means:

hotdogs

Could Jillian and Ed be the new poster couple for the Bachelorette/Bachelor franchise? They look pretty happy. They said last night on A.T.F.R. they would getting married within about a year, and this morning on GMA they said 12-18 months. I am betting ABC wants to broadcast that one! They need a fresh couple to exploit! LOL.

dontjumpThat’s what it came down to for The Bachelorette finale last night. Jillian thought she had to choose between Kiptyn and Ed, but in an unusual move—Reid came back right in the middle of the “proposal rose ceremony.”

Jillian had already sent (a sweetly shell-shocked) Kiptyn kyp_jillhome before he could propose. I was really starting to root for Kiptyn! Not only is he cute, but he seemed so sweet and adventurous. He gave to charity, was not “married to his job.” What more could Jillian want? But, I know… the show edits things to paint the picture they want their audience to see. Who knows what the dynamic between Jillian and any of those three final men really was.

Then after Kiptyn leaves in his limo, Reid shows back up in reid_jillan outfit that wouldn’t be fit for a homeless person on an intersection median. He arrives in a mini-van, un-tucked shirt, white shoes. Are we supposed to buy that this polished Philly Realtor could only swing  a “Goodwill” store outfit and a mini-van shuttle to propose marriage to the woman he decided he loved–once she let him go?

Well, Jillian seemed just as incredulous with Reid’s timing.toldya

She took a time out to think through her choices. Chris Harrison appears to help re-focus her resolve for her choice of a suitor. Then she sends Reid back to his mini-van, cries a little–and heads back to her proposal perch.

dont_f_itupRight before the pre-Ed commercial break, with her hands on her hips, Jillian quips “Ed better not f’ing disappoint me!” Tell me aboot it!

I tweeted with #bachelorette fans last night, and we all had a hay-day with all the many euphemisms that Ed and Jillian used to discuss the previous episode’s E.D. incident. Jillian and Ed had one more bed-top date, and a cut away to ABCs graphics of a volcano erupting. OK. We get it.

Jillian looked pretty happy when she finally welcomed Ed jill_N_edtoward the rose island. Ed professed his love for Jillian, but before he got on one knee to propose–he said he needed to know if Jillian loved him too. Smart. Considering the past history of couples who go through these proposals on the show. I mean, Jason and Melissa looked so ecstatic at their proposal–and by the time “after the final rose” aired Jason had “fallen out of love” with Melissa and wanted one of the other finalists (Molly).

Speaking of which, tonight on ABC will be the A.T.F.R. special for Jillian and Ed. I wonder what surprising (or not so surprising) revelations viewers will discover. Then Jillian is scheduled to be on GMA on Wednesday. It will be interesting to see how it all unfolds… for those who follow The Bachelorette anyway.

wheresthedogJust one more thing. Was anyone else curious about the total absence of Jillian’s “hot dog test” throughout this season? She could have had a field day testing all 30 of the potential bachelors. Oh well!
