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 appropriatenow.
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 text, 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 engaged 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!
That’s what it came down to for The Bachelorettefinale 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 home 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 an 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.
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.
Right 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 toward 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.
Just 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!
OK. I thought I was finished posting about this round of The Bachelor. As crazy as it sounds, there was really was an After the Final RosePart 2 (just when you thought it was safe to return to ABC). Of course, I came this far with the “amazing journey” and just had to see what part 2 had to offer. 😉
Thankfully Melissa was not there. Enough public pain already. They did bring in a handful of this season’s cast off women to weigh in on Jason’s decision. The girls were split in their opinions of Jason’s actions. There is some news circulating around the web containing emails supposedly between Jason and Melissa after the taping of the 1st After the Final Rose. Click on this pic. for source if you want to read some and determine for yourself what you think about the content.
Many of you watched the show, so I don’t really need to re-cap the blow-by-blow. What was interesting to me was the contradictory nature of some of Jason’s comments while he and Molly were sitting together being interviewed about their relationship by Chris Harrison.
What is it that Jason finds most important in his new relationship with Molly?
Is it the chemistry (which he said went south with Melissa)?
Was it the passion?
Was it how Molly is with his son Ty?
No!It is the fact that she is his “best friend.” Hmm… does that sound familiar to anyone else? I thought so. It is because that is the very reason Jason gave for letting Jillian go. He re-stated the “best friends” factor at least 3 times when questioned by Chris Harrison. I don’t find anything surprising anymore when it comes to Jason and his ability to flip-flop his way toward “love.”
Speaking of Jillian: the best friend searching, hot dog testing, hot tub cavorting Canadian is going to be the next Bachelorette. I think most of us saw that one coming. She did tell Chris that her goal for her next shot at finding love on TV was for her father to not have to see her in a hot tub again. We will see about that! 🙂
You know, all through this season (and frankly during Jason’s last TV appearance on The Bachelorette) I have often commented to my honey how odd it seems that the show went out of its way to characterize Jason as a “single dad”–with zero mention of Ty’s mom or her possible involvement in Ty’s life. Clearly someone has to be taking care of Ty while dad is gone for weeks at a time “looking for love.” Who is Ty’s mom? Jason’s ex-wife Hilary Mesnick (now Hilary Madison Wynn?). Evidently she lives in Seattle. And as I suspected is more involved in Ty’s life than The Bachelor’s characterizations would lead the public to believe (per this snippet, click on pic. for source).
I guess one can tell if their show has hit the “big time” when conspiracy theories begin to circulate. Believe it or not (or whether you even cared to know or not) there are conspiracy theories surrounding Season 13 of The Bachelor. I’ll let you go check it out here (or here) if you are even the slightest bit interested. 😉
If you couldn’t care less? We now return you to your regularly scheduled blogging. 😉
The Bachelor Jason Mesnick romantically proposes to Melissa in New Zealand saying: “I am completely in love with you… I love you, will you marry me?”
(Of course, only moments after weeping profusely about having to let Molly go).
But I digress, after Jason’s “amazing” romantic proposal to Melissa the new couple jump into the pool fully clothed along with Jason’s son Ty–quite the happy new family scene. Hmm… not for long.
Cut to 6 weeks later and After the Final RoseJason says to his new fiance “Um yeh, something happened with the chemistry.” And then after dumping Melissa on TV he says to Molly “I am hoping we can get some coffee or something.” WTF Jason? Really?!
Well, at least for once Chris Harrison was not exaggerating when he said it was ‘‘most dramatic season finale in Bachelorhistory.” Chris gives a little more on his blog: “Jason proposed to Melissa right before Thanksgiving over in New Zealand. It was an awesome day and night. They couldn’t have been happier. … They were both very much in love and the scene couldn’t have been better. It appeared to us he had found a terrific woman who would become his wife. I talked to Jason and Melissa several times after the proposal and all was going well. After the holidays something changed…” and that is all we heard from Jason as TV land watched Jason dump Melissa in front of millions of viewers.
Melissa, of course, appears confused and crushed–whispering under her breath “you’re such a bastard.” Finally before leaving (the conspicuously audience free show set) she says to Jason “don’t call me–leave me alone.” Understood!
Oh yeh, the wholeDeAnna Pappas thing was anti-climactic as I suspected. She showed up, told Jason she made a mistake and wanted another chance with Jason. Jason said “thanks for this opportunity to tell you that I am in love with two other women.” Then DeAnna left with her parting advice to Jason “be smart.” He must have blocked that last comment.
So here is the time line. Around Thanksgiving Jason proposes to Melissa and they have 6 weeks of clandestine dates. Six weeks after the proposal was last night’s After the Final Rose show when Jason dumps Melissa and asks Molly out to coffee. Apparently another 6 weeks has transpired since THAT show last night to the present. Now, tonight After the Final RosePart 2 will be on TV.
I wonder what we will hear tonight. Will TV viewers get any more answers? From what I saw with Jimmy Kimmel’s interview with Jason last night I highly doubt we will ever get any more answers than “I just changed my mind–you can’t make me marry someone I’m not in love with.” Is THAT why he was staring at the engagement ring for 10 minutes?
Here are the final results from the poll that many of you voted on. Clearly most of the voters thought Jason was going to pick Melissa. And they were right… for like two seconds!
Ah yes! Last night was the installment of the wencheswomen tell all for season 13 of the Bachelor. For plain old heckle value this episode did not disappoint!
These two in this pic. were a couple of the choicest wenches women for stirring the pot.
Again, the crown favorite was Jillian. Everyone except Jason seemed to see the amazing connection the two of them had, and everyone was equally as incredulous that Jason focused on her comment about a couple needing to be best friends and not seeing the passion that was clearly evident on camera. If that is not passion, I don’t know what is! How is he going to explain to his son that what he was doing in the hot tub is something people do with their best friends?
And does anyone really believe that Jason only went to “first base” with any of the women he had overnight dates with??
She’s BAAACCCKKK! DeAnna will finally made her much publicized visit to the Bachelor next week in New Zealand.
What in the world could she have to say? Will Jason give a crap care about what she has to say?
What was her “mistake”? Will she explain why she is wearing that hideous outfit?
Who knows! All I have to say is:
Don’t jump Jason! They are not worth it!
Chris Harrison has us waiting for the finale with “nothing could of prepared us for what happened next.” Well… until next week!!!
Remember to vote HERE for who you think Jason will pick.
…I have a full day ahead of me so I will leave the nuts and bolts of the recap of last night’s Bachelor adventure to this blogger. Funny stuff! Definitely worth the read whether you are a Bachelor fan or not! 🙂
OK, I know, “who cares” right?(Evidently, a lot of people… as this is one of the most frequent searches that continually leads folks to this blog…)And the latest season of the L Word is over now, right?
However, I had a little question as I watched Season 5 of the L Word. I didn’t happen to run across anyone else asking or answering that question during my VERY limited travels through episode recaps on Lesbian Life on About.com. Anyway, I stumbled on the answer today while watching an “On Demand” feature (Showtime) about the L Word.
My question: was the woman who played the character “Molly” the real-life daughter of the woman who played “Phyllis”?
Answer? Yes! “Molly” was played by Clementine Ford, Cybill Shepherd’s daughter. There, so my tiny burning question was answered. 😉
