The Bachelor “The Women Tell All” Recap

in Shows by

As Nick Viall wraps up this third quest for love, the Women Tell All episode aired this week and we were not disappointed. Especially after the pretty uneventful fantasy suite episodes (except for Raven’s “I just had sex” romp through Finland”, there were many memorable moments during the show. Nick’s group of rejects got together and bared their souls about their quest for the love of one man. Due to all the dramatics, the episode was actually 2 hours long instead of the usual hour long run time. But to be real, this was the Corinne show and once again, she stole the show and made it a cheesy pasta extravaganza.

Before the Corrine show could get started, the ever-host of the Bachelor franchise, Chris Harrison, introduced the previous Nick love interests. As the girls were introduced, it became painfully obvious that half the girls the audience couldn’t remember and to be fair our office couldn’t remember half of the girls as well. Like who is Lacey? She talked a lot but no one could remember any interaction she had with Nick.

After the audience settled down, Liz was the first one to be called to the proverbial hot seat. This girl got raked through the coals for her one night stand with Nick at Jade and Tanner’s wedding. Interestedly enough, Nick was never shamed for the fact that he was also part of that one night stand. It was made out to seem that she went on the show for fame versus being there for Nick. When asked why she didn’t contact him before the show, she said that, “I was in a place in my life that I really, really cared about somebody else, you know, and I needed that period to heal,” she said. By the time she was ready to contact Nick again, he was already gearing up to be the Bachelor. But she said that she felt good about her time and the Bachelor and she was able to walk away knowing that her and Nick just didn’t have a spark. Liz ended up getting a standing ovation from the rest of the girls and the crowd.

Next came Taylor. Taylor, a mental health specialist from Seattle, who is best known for “emotional intelligence” fight with Corinne. There was a lot of contention between the two and it all played out during the Women Tell All episode. Taylor started by saying that in the beginning she was giddy and excited about her potential relationship with Nick. However, once she started to get involved with the drama with Corinne, it all went down hill. Taylor tried to explain her goal in that conversation. Instead of getting people to rally behind her, she seemed to really lose the crowd. She said that Corinne ruined her professional career and that she deserves an apology from Corinne. Jasmine also jumped in to say that Taylor never even got to know Corinne and that Taylor walked around the house with her nose stuck up in the air. Turns out, Taylor was not popular amongst the other girls and it became even more apparent when no one would really come to her defense. A few of the girls tried to jump in but it also fell flat.

Next up was Corinne who then took the show by storm. It is unusual that the typical Bachelor villain ends up being a fan favorite. Even Chris Harrison stated that he enjoyed Corinne and her antics on the show. Corinne got up there and took no prisoners and even though she was blasted for her promiscuous behavior, she gave no apologies. She basically took the stance of “Don’t hate the player, hate the game”. She was out to get Nick’s attention and she did that by any means necessary. The conversation then turned to her nap situation which caused the girls to erupt into a screaming match over how inappropriate it is to nap. Once again, Corinne could care less about what people think about her nap game. Chris Harrison then sort of gets Corinne and Taylor to bury the hatchet. When Chris Harrison asked about Raquel, the nanny, Corinne told a pretty touching story about how Raquel supported her through her mom’s ovarian cancer. Then the audience was treated to Raquel’s famous “cheesy pasta“. The camera zoomed in on Taylor’s face and she had a disgusted look on her face while holding the cheesy pasta.

Next up was Kristina, the Russian angel who’s story brought everyone to tears. They replay the emotional moment when she tells Nick and her time in the Russian orphanage and the time she had to eat lipstick because they had no food, (I’m not crying, you are crying). She then speaks about the walls she had to put up and how hard it was to open up to Nick (You didn’t deserve her Nick, she is too damn good for this show).

Then Nick comes out onto the stage and it’s a pretty anticlimax. The only interesting part that happens is when Lacey (who?) asks if Nick friend zoned her. She wanted to know why Nick talked about other girls to her, and then told him that he shouldn’t talk about potential girlfriends with other potential girlfriends (Did she not know she was on The Bachelor?) The best part of Nick’s whole interview was when he told Alexis that his mom wanted to meet her. Who doesn’t want to meet Alexis the aspiring dolphin trainer?

Rachel the new bachelorette was introduced and she told a standing ovation from the rest of the girls. When asked what kind of man she is looking for, she said she wanted some who was ready to settle down, get married and have kids. Chris Harrison asked about her thoughts about being the first African American Bachelorette and she said, ”  don’t want that to be the focus of my journey, but I’m happy to acknowledge it and I’m happy to be the person to be able to do this, and I’m humbled by the experience, so I’m excited for that.” Well Rachel we can’t wait to see you in May!

 

 

Amber Portwood Announces on Instagram she is Quitting Teen Mom OG

Amber Portwood announces she is quitting Teen Mom OGThe hits just keep coming. The fallout from the Teen Mom OG Reunion just keeps on going. It is literally the gift that keeps on giving this season. The latest drama is that Amber Portwood has made an announcement on Instagram that she has quit the show. But hold the phone, her co-star Farrah Abraham, says that Amber is bluffing.

Amber posted an older photo of the Teen Mom OG cast with the caption, “I’ll be leaving #TeenMomOG sadly. The lack of respect is too much anymore! But still sending all my love!” She went on to explain the reason behind her departure is the fact that she feels like the reunion brawl was heavily edited to portray her as the villain in the now infamous fight.

She then went on Twitter to further explain her stance on the issue. She tweeted, “The day I’m shown some respect by the people I’ve worked with for 8 years is the day I’ll be back. I’ve sacrificed a lot for this show.”  She went on to say that she feels like she has been treated unfairly and that since the reunion show she has continued to feel disrespected to this day. She also doesn’t feel safe anymore. She said, “Nothing has been dealt with or has made me feel any safer to even move on with people who have continuously hidden things from the network.”

Farrah told Radar Online that she highly doubts that Amber will be quitting anytime soon. She then delivered this epic burn, ““Amber would never quit or any of the other girls,” she told Radar. “They all need the money, especially their boyfriends.”

Farrah isn’t entirely incorrect about this statement. Matt doesn’t appear to have a job and neither does Amber. He wrote and book and we guess they flip homes on the side but neither of those ventures are sustainable long term. They make great money from the show for literally doing nothing but being on tv. We actually agree with Farrah on this one, we don’t think that Amber will be quitting anytime soon.

Who Decided to Stay Together on Married at First Sight?

in Shows by

mafsseason4cast-490x318Well the social “experiment” has come to an end. One couple, Derek Schwartz, 35 and Heather Seidel, 32 had already made the decision three weeks in to end the marriage despite Derek’s pleas. So what about the other two couples? Did Tom Wilson and Lillian Vilchez stay together and what about Sonia Granados and Nick Pendergrast?

Starting with Sonia Granados and Nick Pendergrast- they decided to STAY TOGETHER! This comes as a shock because they seemed destined for a split once Nick informed Sonia that he wasn’t attracted to her. She moved out but then decided to move back in right before decision day. Nick, who sometimes has difficulty expressing his emotions, actually showed some excitement when she decided to move back in. Before they went into to the meeting with the specialist, Nick and Sonia really seemed to share some moments of actual happiness. As part of one of their relationship building exercises, they made a vision board for their future together and they appeared to be on the same page about a lot of life goals, including having kids. They also gave each other gifts.  Nick gave Sonia a silver chain that Nick clearly put some though into and she seemed really touched by it. She gave him cactus print underwear because he’s a bit ‘prickly’, and a shirt featuring a poop emoji and Nick thought it was a pretty funny gift. Both seemed really happy before heading into the meeting.  During their meeting with the show’s relationship experts, Dr. Pepper Schwartz and Rachel DeAlto, both Sonia and Nick agreed that their relationship has had some ups and downs but Nick admitted that he has learned to be more empathetic and to think twice before saying something that might hurt Sonia. While she said their time together has made her a better communicator. After everything, they decided to stay together and doggone it we hope that this crazy couple actually makes it.

Now moving on to Tom and Lillian. This couple seemed to be destined to make it. They were immediately attracted to each other and seemed to have a good connection. Half way through the experiment though, their differences started to drive a wedge between them. Tom started to have second thoughts about their marriage.  Both of them were concerned about their different lifestyles and goals for the future. Sonia said she wants to make a lot of money and wants to maintain a certain lifestyle while Tom’s dream was to be able remain carefree and travel on his converted bus.  Children also became an issue.  Tom noted while making their vision board that he would like to adopt a child but Lillian would like to at least give birth to their first child before they adopt. The couple also exchanged gifts with each other. Lillian gave Tom a cardboard cutout of her heart and he gave her an alarm clock to symbolize their time together. After they exchanged gifts Tom said, “I am a little bit nervous about my decision today. You know, I don’t want to break Lilly’s heart and I don’t want to have set such a high expectation either. Things could go either way.” Meanwhile, Lillian was always for staying together. When they finally met with the specialists, it seemed like Tom was about to break Lillian’s heart, but when the final decision was made, he decided to stick it out with her.

It appears as if the social experiment might have actually worked this time. Two out of the three couples decided to stay together. It will be interested to see what happens after the first 6 weeks. Most likely we will soon be seeing a follow up show to check in on their progress.

 

 

TV’s Highest Paid Celebrity Is….

judge-judy-tile_0

Well we sorely underestimated the amount of people that are watching daytime tv because it turns out that out of all the shows that exist on tv, Judge Judy is the highest paid tv star! Variety did some investigating to see who was the highest paid star and the winner was Judge Judy. Turns out she gets paid a whole lot of money to call people stupid and berate them on daytime television.

Judge Judy, real name Judith Sheindlin, earns a whopping $47 million annually for presiding over the hit CBS-distributed syndicated court show, now in its 21st season. Turns out 10.3 million people tune in per week to watch this show making it the most watched show on daytime television. Judge Judy isn’t the only one pulling in major cash from this show. The show brings in an estimated $160 million to $170 million in revenue a year. This includes license fees from 200-plus stations around the country and CBS’ barter advertising revenue. Also her bailiff, Petri Hawkins-Byrd, who has been on the show for a long time is rumored to make more than $1 million a year.

The reason why high Judge Judy, her bailiff, and the station can make so much money is because the production costs are so minimal. The show which typically shoots 260-odd episodes over the course of about 52 days each year was a huge hit right out of the gate. The staying power of the show has been the main reason why she commands such a huge payday.

Congrats to Judge Judy for pulling in unbelievable money. Here’s to many more seasons of the Judge Judy Show!
