Notes, Quotes, and Observations – 11/14/08

November 14th, 2008 | 34 Comments | Posted in Notes, Quotes...

Back with another update, since once seems to be due right now with what’s going on in the “Bachelor/ette” world. There’s a lot of false information floating around out there, so who better to set the record straight than me? Reality Steve to the rescue. This weeks column will cover all that’s going on in the “Bachelor/ette” world, and there’s plenty. An update on my Thanksgiving holiday approaching, what I’m dreading doing next week, “Dancing with the Stars”, “Celebrity Rehab”, and of course, “24″.

I figured I’d get this column in before next week becomes super hectic. I’m moving. I hate moving. Dread it. Hate helping people move, hate the thought of helping people move, and hate moving period. But I figured it’d be nice to have a little yard for Maddie to play in and I like being on the first floor, so I’m moving to another apartment in my complex. I’m just not looking forward to it. I wish that day would just come and go. I move Tuesday and I haven’t done a single bit of packing yet. I know I’ll wait til Monday too. Everytime I’ve told myself, “Ok, todays the day I’m gonna start cleaning up and boxing stuff up,” I seem to get distracted and go watch “Gossip Girl” or fool around on the internet for 3 hours. I’ve got ADD when it comes to stuff that I don’t want to do. I think I’m purposely making excuses to put it off til the last minute. Oh well. Such the life of a procrastinator.

Of course, other than it being Thanksgiving, I’m returning back to California in two weeks for the annual Turkey Bowl flag football game, played Thanksgiving morning. I think my buddies and I have done it 10 years in a row now, and I’ve realized the older I get, the less I can play in it. Two years ago, I pulled my hamstring, and last year, my back pretty much allowed me to do nothing. I’ve got back problems. I know, I sound like I’m 50, but I do. It’s just the way it is. Sucks not being a world class athlete anymore and that I can’t do the things I used to be able to do. Well, you know, except THAT thing. Haven’t lost that touch whatsoever. In fact, I don’t think I ever will. So no worries. Whoever was curious. Man, in years past, I couldn’t wait til Thanksgiving morning to play in that game. I could go non stop for hours. Now? Psssshh. I play about two series before I’m gassed. Doesn’t matter. We brought in some ringers this year, so they won’t need me as much.

THE BACHELOR/ETTE

-Let’s first start off with the news that a lot of you seem to be interested in, which is the rumors that DeAnna and Jeremy spent the weekend together recently. This story made it into a local Dallas magazine, which then had a couple internet sites who ran with it. Obviously, I went straight to the source on this one and asked Jeremy if he had heard of this report and whether or not it was true. His response: “Totally ridiculous.” No, Jeremy did not spend the weekend with DeAnna, hasn’t spent any weekends with DeAnna since the show ended, and doesn’t have any plans to spend future weekends with her. In addition, he told me to throw in that the weekend in question, he wasn’t even in Dallas as he was out of town celebrating his grandma’s 80th birthday with family. So there’s that. You got your answer.

-Next item of business regarding Jeremy were pictures from a recent Halloween party in Las Vegas that had him “canoodling” with Aubrey O’Day, formerly of the group “Danity Kane”. Couldn’t avoid these pictures since they’re out there on the internet, so of course, I had to ask him about those. His response: “Yes, I was her guest to the Halloween party in Vegas, we’re very good friends, but no, we’re not dating. I spent the rest of that weekend in Vegas with friends who were in from Dallas.” I don’t know anything about Aubrey O’Day since I never watched “Making the Band.” She could be a great, wholesome, voluptuous, young woman with high moral standards, or she could be a giant floozy, as the media seems to portray her as. I have no idea. Here’s what I do know. Her breasts are the size of small children. So that must account for something. Like being able to solve our economic crisis.

-So where does Jeremy stand right now regarding his relationship status? Here’s what he had to say when I asked him.

“I can comment that I’m not dating anyone right now. I hang out with my friends but there are no proposals coming from me anytime soon. I just haven’t met the one yet. I am hoping I do but I’m not putting any pressure on myself. There is no hurry, and in the meantime, I have my newborn niece to play with as well as my other niece and nephew. I’m just having fun being an uncle right now.”

Hey, I’m here to help. If you need his social security number or bank account information, I can give you that too. Ha ha. Kidding people. After what happened with Paula Abdul’s stalker, I don’t trust any of the weirdos out there who consider themselves fans.

-Well, well, well. Our beloved DeAnna has gone running to her MySpace page to give us her side of the story. And by “her side of the story,” I mean “nothing at all.” Here’s what DeAnna wrote about the breakup with Jesse:

First, I would first like to thank all of the people who have supported Jesse and myself. I, too, am saddened by the breakup of our relationship. While it would be easy to get on here and start defending myself against the recent negative attacks on me, I choose not to do that. I respect the relationship Jesse and I had too much to drag the issues we had out into the public eye. Some things need to remain private. I wish Jesse nothing but the very best life has to offer and I know that he will succeed and do well in his pursuits. I greatly appreciate everyone who has posted publically or privately offering kind words and support during this difficult time. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. DeAnna

Hey, I know I’m just as guilty as the rest of them when it comes to spell check since I’ve never used it once, but DeAnna, feel free to spell “publicly” correct next time. It might serve you well as you start your new blogging endeavor, which we’ll get to in a moment. When she says, “It would be easy to get on here and start defending myself against the recent negative attacks on me,” I really hope she’s talking about me. Hey, I’d love to go face-to-face with her. Hell, I’ll throw the invitation out there right now. Come do an interview with Reality Steve, DeAnna. The floor is yours. Say what you want to say. Mi casa, su casa. If it’s so easy to defend yourself, then why don’t you do it? Frankly, I don’t think there’s much you can say which would change anyone’s mind.

You see, what DeAnna seems to be missing here is that I’m not attacking her for breaking up with the guy, we all know that happens. Especially when it comes to this show. I’m not attacking her for “things that need to remain private” between her and Jesse. Those were their problems and none of my business. What I am attacking her for are things that can’t be disputed:

-the fact that all along, she wanted to be on television and used the “Bachelor/ette” as a spring board. If she were to say, “I went on the show with the intention of falling in love, and as a result, all these opportunities came about so I took them,” I’ll just call bulls**t on that since we know that’s not the case.
-the fact that her and Jesse were the only Bachelor/ette couple to create their own website dedicated to telling us where they were, where they’ll be, all homemade videos of them, and every interview or tv appearance they had.
-the fact that Jesse claims the only time she was affectionate with him was in front of the cameras.
-the fact that on Monday, the day the breakup reached the press, she was on a TV morning show and was asked point blank how things were with Jesse, and she responded by saying they were still getting married, even though they had broken up two days earlier.

Sorry, honey. Those are the undisputable facts. If you would like to tell your side of the story to every one of those examples, I would like nothing more than to hear what you come up with. Until then, have fun blogging.

-So DeAnna has been hired by Lifetime TV to be a co-host for a show called “Get Married”. She is also a blogger on their site, I guess to tell all the numerous wedding stories she has from her zero weddings. Really? People are going to be getting wedding advice from someone who’s never been married? Brilliant. I think I’m going to go write a book on parenting, even though I’ve never had any kids. Or better yet, how about someone hire me to host a show on the Travel Channel where I tell you all about all the hot spots and good bargains you can get in Europe even though I’ve never been out of the country? Unbelievable. Here’s the link to her blog. I found it hilarious that all the comments on there so far are positive. “Great to have you, DeAnna!” “You’ll find that love of your life someday!” “You are awesome. There is someone special out there waiting for you!” Please. I’m gonna barf.

http://www.getmarried.com/bloggerbrides/index.php?page=view_post&post_id=948#post_comments

My suggestion? Reality Steve fans and DeAnna haters start bombarding her blog with comments calling her out for being a fraud. I’m guessing they won’t let those on a million years. Gotta love how the media can spin things any way they want. Seriously, I’m flabbergasted that someone hired her to co-host a show about getting married when she’s never been married, nor has she ever planned one. Ok, well maybe her and Jesse were in the very beginning stages of their wedding, but please, we all know that was being put together by ABC. This is hilarious. You are truly lost in life if you watch this show to listen to her advice.

-I think I’ve pretty much said my peace on DeAnna and Jesse. Convenient that not one week after they break up, she’s got a TV gig lined up. Yeah, I’m sure that had nothing to do with it. Ok, that’s it. I’m done. No more about them. Until probably the next column.

-In other “Bachelor” related news, looks like one of our other couples is officially back together. I’d been hearing rumors that Charlie O’Connell and Sarah Brice were back together, but there wasn’t anything official from either party. Until now. Charlie recently told “In Touch” magazine, “I don’t want to jinx it, but it’s going great. We are taking it slow and not taking each other for granted this time. The future looks good!” Anyone that’s been following my column for years knows that I’ve said the best season this show ever produced in terms of being the most realistic was Charlie’s season. They didn’t have extravagant dates, it was filmed in his hometown, every date involved something any normal couple would do in the beginning stages of a relationship, and at the end of six weeks, he wasn’t forced to choose anyone. They allowed him to continue dating both girls during the entire time the show was being aired to the public, then he made his final decision live during the finale. Why ABC has only chose to use that format once in 16 seasons is beyond me. I guess because it made too much sense. I don’t think it’s a coincidence that the longest running couple, outside of Byron and Mary who like to beat each other up, is Charlie and Sarah. They went out for two years, took a year off, and now they’re back together.

-And how about the latest “US Weekly” story that has former Bachelor Travis Stork and Carrie Underwood now playing hide the pickle? Jeesh. Other than their Nashville ties, I wouldn’t have seen this one coming in a million years. I’d say that’s a step up from Sarah or that wet blanket Moana, wouldn’t you? Nice catch, Trav. Might wanna to hold on to that one. Then again, all of Carrie’s public relationships have failed, and the minute they do, she writes a song about it. Just don’t cheat on her. She might dig her keys into the side of your pretty little suped up four wheel drive, then carve her name into your leather seats. And if you’re not careful, she might take a Louisville slugger to both headlights and slash all four tires. So think before you cheat. Yes, I own the CD. I’m so gay.

DANCING WITH THE STARS

-Not really surprising to see who’s left at this point. Its definitely the four best dancers. I assume that the finals will be Brooke, Cody, and Warren. Some of you might say Lance stays over Cody, which I wouldn’t have a problem with, but let’s all remember who Cody’s partner is: Julianne. And people like her and want to keep her around. That’s why when she was gone the last two weeks and he looked completely uncomfortable with Edtya, he was still kept around. I honestly wouldn’t mind seeing Warren go, but that’s just because I’m biased against the guy having followed his sports career. Don’t like him at all. Never have, never will. Wanna know a pet peeve of mine? People who constantly laugh at their own jokes. Or laugh after every sentence that comes out of their mouth whether its funny or not. Sorry, can’t stand it. And Warren does it, ALL THE TIME. Annoying. Plus, if you really, really, really look at his dancing, it’s not that good. He just puts on a good performance, smiles a lot, and the crowd likes him. But technically, he’s the worst of the four left by far. But then again, that’s really never mattered since it’s mostly a popularity contest.

-Cody had to come out this week and defend himself after that video performance Tuesday night where he’s shown wailing away at Julianne being gone. Basically, Cody denied he has a crush on Julianne, even though everything he’s done this year suggests otherwise. Really Cody? You don’t? May I ask you something? Why not? She’s freakin’ Julianne. Have you looked at her recently? She’s right around your age, she’s hot, she can dance, she’s successful, and she’s not a diva, from what we know. It’s ok, Cody. Just admit you go to bed every night with dirty thoughts about Julianne and wake up feeling, ummmm, uncomfortable. Sorry, Cody. Don’t buy it for a second. You’re a 19 year old boy getting to dance with arguably the hottest woman on television right now. At 19, I was pretty much sweating anytime anything with a pulse talked to me. Now you’re getting rub bodies for 6 hours a day with that and you’re telling us you don’t have a crush on her? Please. Be a man and admit you want to take Julianne to prom and all will be forgiven.

-Speaking of Julianne, did you catch her and Derek’s performance during the results show on Tuesday? So let me get this straight. This chick was laid up for two weeks after having her appendix removed and an ovarian cyst, comes back, and can put that routine together where she’s dancing around stage non-stop for 3-4 minutes straight? She’s superwoman. I think one of the more interesting things about this show is, as much as we see the celebrities improve from week 1 until the end, every time you watch the pros dancing together, they are just in a completely different league and you realize, “Wow. The celebrities will never be that good.” Once again, I have no formal training in dance, didn’t know the first thing about ballroom dancing until I started watching this show, but I’ll be the first to admit, those professionals are awesome. I understand most of them have probably been dancing since they were little kids, but I’m still pretty amazed at what they can do. Men’s bodies aren’t supposed to be that flexible. Then I watch Derek dance and I think he’s Plastic Man. So kudos to all professional dancers on that show. You entertain me.

-Of course, what would a season of “Dancing with the Stars” be without finding out, “Who’s screwing who?” Now, we all know Cody has a crush on Julianne because who doesn’t? But come to find out this week that Maxsim and Karina are now a couple. Interesting choice considering that guy could probably pull any tail that he wanted, yet he picks up Mario Lopez’ sloppy seconds. On the results show Tuesday, no doubt I was watching them a little more closely in the professionals dance. Nothing out of the ordinary, but it was their first dance since it became public knowledge that they’re fornicating off screen. Over the years, there’ve been numerous rumors and stories about who’s hooking up with who and what not. Julianne and Apolo, Julianne and Helio, Sara Evans and Tony, etc. Plenty of rumors and stories. There is one couple I know for 100% fact was sleeping together and it was well known around the set. How do I know this? Because back during this particular season, I knew someone who worked on the show. No need for Reality Steve to go flapping his gums, but here’s a hint: One of the people in question is married, and the other is one of the “bigger” pros. That’s all you get. Just know I’m not making this up for attention sake, or just going off a hunch. This is 100% confirmed. Have at it.

CELEBRITY REHAB

-A lot of reality shows out there are trash. We know this. And a lot of reality TV gets a bad rap, which it deserves. Shows like “Flavor of Love”, “Rock of Love”, “I Love NY”, “Charm School”, let’s face it, they’re garbage. They’re purely put on TV for shock value and nothing else. However, there are obviously some reality shows out there which actually serve a purpose and are beneficial to people in some way. “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” and “Biggest Loser” are two that come to mind immediately. There’s nothing negative about those shows. They’re helping people change a lifestyle. Even “American Idol” to a certain extent can fit in that category for the sole reason it gives otherwise unknown artists a chance to perform in front of millions of people every week, and can give someone their big break. Yes, the audition episodes are there for comedy value, but we all know Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood wouldn’t be where they are today without “Idol”. Well, I think we can throw “Celebrity Rehab” into that category.

-If you’ve never seen the show, it’s pretty fascinating. Yes, the people chosen for the show are mostly B and C list celebrities that you probably don’t know or care about. But the show is pretty powerful to watch. Look, I don’t know anyone in rehab, I’ve never been into drugs myself, and I’ve never been huge on that whole party scene anyway, so I can’t speak for people in their positions, but it is pretty amazing to me to watch these people not being able to function without their drugs. It reminds of the old SNL skit where Will Ferrell plays a news anchor and the teleprompter goes down, and all hell breaks loose. Watching these addicts try to recover from not having their drugs is pretty good television. And the not so surprising thing to hear is, when they’re in group therapy, learning about their family life. Basically every single one of these people had parental issues. Either their parents were users, they’re parents neglected them, they were abused or molested, etc. Funny how it works out that way. Probably a good show to watch if you’re a parent too knowing that if you’re a complete f**k up, your kid’s probably gonna turn into one too. Watch the show. Trust me. It’s really good. And if I ever get to the point where I ever need to go into therapy or something, I want Dr. Drew as my doctor. Who wouldn’t want that guy?

24

-We are now only 9 days away from “24″ 2 hour movie event next Sunday night. I can’t tell you how painful it has been for me to sit around since May of 2007 without any new episodes of “24″. Damn writers strike. Last column had the “24: Redemption” trailer in it. If you’ve never seen the show, it is ok to start watching this season. Yeah, you know won’t know some of the backstory of a couple characters, and you might not completely understand the Kiefer Sutherland character, but they’ve pretty much started fresh this season, so you’ll probably be able to pick it up fairly easy. In case you missed it, here’s trailer:

As for season 7 which starts up in January, there’s a new trailer up for it now. Includes a little more footage considering they’ve already shot 20 of the 24 episodes. Usually the trailer for the season only has clips from the first few shows, but since this season will be the first time that the whole season has been completed before the first episode airs, they’re able to include a little more footage.

That’s all for this week. I’ll be back after the Thanksgiving holiday to update everyone on my Turkey Bowl game, how Maddie is enjoying her new apartment, and all that is good, and bad, on television. Any questions, comments, concerns, praises, criticisms, guesses on which former “DWTS” couple were banging it out on a nightly basis, email me at steve@realitysteve.com. Until next time….

34 thoughts on “Notes, Quotes, and Observations – 11/14/08

  1. I’m so happy to hear the Jeremy/DeAhhhna rumor was not true. After hearing his interview with you and with Ben&Skin, I didn’t think he’d do such a dumb thing! Still wish he wasn’t photographed mugging with Aubrey O’Day… not a visual I enjoyed since he is my TV boyfriend.

    Glad he is just hanging out these days… Big 12 South Conference is emotionally draining enough without adding a relationship to the mix. Go Sooners!

    Thanks for the update Steve!!!!

  2. Sorry Steve… still not buying it that Jeremy and Slutty O’Day are just friends. They were lip-locked most of the night!

    Either her PR people paid Jeremy to TRYto help with HER very poor public image – or he is just sleeping around and at the same time trying to extract the last little bit of his 15-mins!!.

    Either way he did not come across in a positive light. And IF her PR folks paid him and threw in the trip to Vegas (all expense paid etc) he is now a fame whore, how sad to see what he has turned into.

    I think perhaps Barber Ron knew what he was talking about!

  3. still not buying it…. are you qusan? We haven’t seen her around much since De made a a$$ of herself with the dumping of Jesse. And you seem about as anti-Jeremy as she was. Just wondering!

  4. it was soooo drew and cheryl.

    you are funny. I think even women realize how hot julianne is. thank goodness the winning couple (bro and sis) did a jive and nothing like a rumba.

    deanna deanna…no words…I am rebelling now on lifetime for hiring her.

    moving…I hate it too. ughh… would offer to help but I hate it too much. good luck on the last minute work you have ahead

  5. Come on! Who really thought DeAnna and Jeremy were really hooking up? I know several of his friends very well and he has never once mentioned anything about any future with DeAnna, not even just talking! Good for him for staying away from that train wreck.

    One thing I noticed in the pic that circulated with the Jeremy and O’Day smooch was that it appeared to me like he was not embracing her at all. Looks like a quick kiss like maybe a “great to see you now I’m gonna run” sort of awkward peck. I don’t know. We saw him kiss DeAnna enough to know that when he kisses someone, you feel like you are a peeping tom, but that O’Day kiss looked like a gratuitous “get me the heck out of here” kiss!! Just my opinion.

    What I know of the guy is that he seems to try to lay relatively low even in a small social scene like Dallas. I never see him out anymore, which suggests to me that he isn’t trying to milk the fame of being a “local celebrity.” I hear he is back to work as a lawyer, and he seems to be doing really well with that.

    I am excited to see the next season with the single dad, Jason. I believe this guy is not in it for fame or fortune, but hoping to find a lasting relationship.

    Oh and Boomer Sooner!! Beat the he11 out of Tech!!

  6. Renee — was it Drew and Cheryl? I thought Drew wasn’t married when he did the show? I’m so out of the loop.

    “Bigger” girl or “bigger” guy? Now I’m going to be thinking about this for no reason. Ack!!

  7. So happy,
    No i”m not Qusan… and… honestly I used to think she was quite nuts going on and on about all the negative things she had to say about Jeremy. She was a naysayer for sure.

    Actually I used to adore Jeremy! I thought he was the complete package of good looks, class, intelligence and warmth. But the last few blurbs of news about him in NYC and Las Vegas, and his JC Penny modeling turned me off.

    Lesleezplz – hmmmm seems like you’ve only seen ONE photo since you reference “smootch” and not kisses? There are plenty more photos out there (and a video) if you search well enough. All i can say is there was lots of touching, smiling, kissing, cuddling, lounging etc. It was an entire evening after all. I don’t know… if he’s not into her then it has PR stunt written all over it. Sure, he’s not out in the Dallas social scene, he’s busy doing his day job probably working 12 hrs a day and then heading to his PR related events on the weekends (with the exception of Grandmother’s Birthday of course!!).

  8. DeAnna is a trainwreck. What a bad choice Lifetime made thinking she would bring credibility or people to bloggerbrides.com! And how disgusting is it that Jesse is almost begging to be the next bachelor. Perhaps they’re just riding this train for all its worth, but I hope people don’t encourage them much further.

  9. Wow, ‘still not buying it’, I guess your adoration of Jeremy didn’t run very deep if a few bits of hearsay caused you to change your opinion of him.

    I’m actually fortunate enough to know him, and I have to say you should have stuck with your initial impression—he really is, as you put it, “the complete package of good looks, class, intelligence and warmth”.

    I don’t understand how the “blurbs” about NYC would have changed your mind about him—he was there to support the launch of Graham Bunn’s charity 46 and hang out with some of the other guys from Bachelorette 4.

    As far as JC Penney’s goes, he’s modeled for them and countless other company’s for over a decade—don’t see what this would have to do with him being a good person or why this should change your opinion of him.

    And the weekend in Vegas I think he explains quite clearly in his comments to Reality Steve—she’s a friend, he attended the party as her guest, they’re not dating. I don’t know how much clearer that point could be. Yes, there are pics of them kissing, but if you look at them (which it appears you have) you can see that many of them are photos of the same kiss taken from different angles, and he’s holding a drink during the majority of them—I don’t know about you, but when I am getting really romantic with someone I put down my drink so I can use my hands. Jeremy is a very affectionate guy—in a sweet way, not at all sleezy, just warm and endearing—I’d be much more surprised if he attended a party as someone’s date and was not seen hugging or kissing her at some point. This was not a PR stunt—it was a weekend in Vegas. Most people are photographed with smiles on their faces and lounging around during weekends in Vegas. Unfortunately for some, though, what happens in Vegas doesn’t stay in Vegas, it gets speculated about all over the web, even when there’s nothing to speculate about at all.

    You’re right again when you say he’s working long hours—that he is. It’s not PR events that are taking up his downtime, however, it’s football games and family visits—and, since no one seems ready to stop speculating about his personal life, the occasional chat with Reality Steve.

    Jeremy deserves a bit more credit, respect and privacy than he’s been afforded by the “press” of late—this article was a breath of fresh air! Cheers to Steve for trying to actually set the record straight!

  10. Drew was married, hell his wife was pregnant in the audience every night along side Nick. Love me some Nick… He should do the show.. I don’ t know if Steve is doing a play on words because Drew while certainly popular isn’t “big” he’s a very small man.. the other problem is Steve describes these people as one was married and the other was one of the “bigger” stars.. well, cheryl wasn’t married.. so it has to be a married dancer and a “bigger” star…

    I want Brooke to win because I want Derek to win. I think this show is becoming as much a popularity contest for Stars as it is for the pros.

    Everyone have a happy turkey day!!

  11. Thanks Tink!
    It’s clear that your feelings for Jeremy are genuine. Thank you for touching on each point. Your methodical approach to the response was certainly appreciated.

    Yes,okay on NYC.Yes, okay on the modeling. It’s the cumulation of these things coupled along with the blip in Las Vegas that looks negative. I have spent many weekends with friends in Vegas, there is always plenty of fun and frolicking. I would like to say however that I don’t kiss my male friends on lips in that fashion, that would be just plain odd! And the point that O’day is the next best thing to a porn star, if you know what I mean takes away from the wholesome down-to-earth Texas guy we like to hope Jeremy truly is. Friend or not perhaps he should have thought about turning down that invitation.

  12. I heard Get Married buys air time from Lifetime TV
    so Deanna was not hired by Lifetime.Maybe she
    thinks this is her stepping stone to Hollywood.
    Who knows.

    Jeremy was always my pick from the show.What
    a nice, genuine guy.

  13. tiffany — I took “bigger pros” comment to mean the hoopla over Cheryl’s weight at the beginning of the DWTS season. (?)

    That said, I still have no idea who she could’ve hooked up with. “Bigger pros” could mean Maxim and…(?)

  14. Tink,

    I think it’s great for you to defind your friend. But you are also confusing some. Quoted “I’d be much more surprised if he attended a party as someone’s date and was not seen hugging or kissing her at some point”. And in the same paragraph you say that they’re not dating! What do we call that then? One date or a one night stand?

  15. Bobbie,

    I don’t see any conflict in Tink’s comments. Are you saying that if you are on a date with someone then you are dating? In my opinion it takes much more than being on one date or being a guest to be considered “dating”. Also, last I checked a kiss does not equal a one night stand!! That is one very large leap! But what do I know? I have been “dating” the same guy for a couple years now!

  16. jeremy and aubrey are so together…he needs to man up and admit it..i know shes not the classiest lady in town but if ur moochin on her, you should admit it :)

  17. Heya ladies. This is Bobbies’ husband and I say Jeremy is one smart dude. He went on the Bachelorette to have is picture taken. He went to Austin to have his picture taken. He went to NYC – well I think you get the picutre – to have his picture taken.

    Now he is splitting tail from NY to LA and all places in between!! He know’s what he’s doing and he is a big boy. I say live and let live! Let the good ole boy enjoy his 15 mins.

  18. In response to comment #17 by “Please”…

    Let me get this straight, “Please”, you’re saying that Reality Steve, Jeremy and I have all gone out of our way to lie, but you, on the other hand, know “the truth” because you looked at some tabloid photos of a Halloween party??

    All things being equal, what seems more likely

    a) we are all lying or

    b) you are jumping to conclusions ???

    I’m going to have to go with “b”—not only have you jumped to conclusions, you also seem to feel you have the right to insult the character and word of everyone even remotely involved.

  19. Thank you for the update on Charlie and Sarah. They continue to be my favorite bachelor couple ever, because they alone seem “real”. (Though I really like Firestone also.)

    I hope they make it. Not because of the fairy tale but because they seemed a good match. They seemed to have that hidden “give and take” teasing and love capability that keeps couples together for awhile.

    Please keep us posted about this!

  20. I ran into Jeremy this weekend at a black tie event in Dallas benefiting a large children’s charity. After a couple minutes of catching up I asked him a couple direct questions about O’Day and the recent break-up. He confirmed that he is not dating O’Day. He said they met in Dallas. He knew nothing about her but that she was very nice to him. He said they became friends and she invited him as her guest to a party she was hosting since he was planning to be out in Vegas that weekend visiting several friends for Halloween. He also said that “the smooch” was unexpected and caught him off guard. He was going to give her a kiss on the cheek and it just didn’t turn out that way. He left the party shortly after and spent the rest of the night with his other friends at another casino. He also said that he and O’Day have not spoken much at all since that weekend. Sorry “Please”, but it sounds like these two are definitely not dating by anyone’s standards. I do believe dating requires some form of conversation or communication.

    He also confirmed that he has spoken to Jesse. He wouldn’t say whether he has spoken to DeAnna. He said that the guys are planning to get together soon for a snowboarding trip “to put all the bs behind them and just hang out.” I asked him where and he said they haven’t decided yet. I would guess in Breckenridge with Jesse being the local guy there knowing everyone. Anyway, just thought I would share what I gathered over the weekend and put the rumors to rest.

    Also, I wanted to add one thing. Jeremy was getting mauled by older and younger girls the entire time we were trying to talk to him. I was very impressed by the way he handled himself. He was very soft spoken and humble when people came up and asked him to take a picture with them. He kept getting interrupted when talking to me and the others in the group and he never seemed the least bit annoyed or put off. He didn’t act like cocky or full of himself and even thanked people before they even got a chance to thank him for the photo. I asked him if it ever got old and he just smiled and said that although the attention is flattering, that the best thing to come out of it all is getting to meet some really nice people that he wouldn’t have otherwise.

    I want to say this, like anyone in Dallas, you hear good and bad things about people especially the guys. I don’t know Jeremy very well, but my friends do. What I can say about the guy that I hear about and I have seen on rare occassions is that I honestly believe he is a great guy and has great things ahead of him. He doesn’t like to talk about himself (he is noticably uncomfortable, a lot like when he was talking about his parents in the dugout on the show), which is a rare quality in a guy (especially a Dallas guy), but is always complimenting the people around him and his friends and family and asking how everyone else is doing. However, he was glowing about his new niece, and even showed me a picture. I thought that was the cutest thing I have ever seen a guy do in public! He is definitely a proud new uncle. He had nothing but nice things to say and I was just incredibly impressed with how nice and down to earth he is even after all this.

    So, Im not going to defend him anymore because getting to know him better proves to me that those who are saying mean things, just plain don’t know him at all. If they did, they would be just as impressed with his sincerity and his gentle nature as I am and would have nothing but glowing things to say.

  21. Can you elaborate on what you said “O’Day and the recent break-up”? So they were dating … and now recently broke up?

    Also, don’t you think the word mauled is a little harsh to use in the above context??
    tr.v. mauled also malled, maul·ing also mall·ing,
    1. To injure by or as if by beating: The boxer mauled the other fighter. The critics mauled the novelist’s first effort. See Synonyms at batter1.
    2. To handle roughly: The package was mauled by the careless messenger.
    3. To split (wood) with a maul and wedge.

    What was he doing at a black tie event in Dallas benefiting a large children’s charity? Did he pay several thousand dollars for a seat at a table to benefit the charity? or was he a “guest” aka/another PR related event to add to his diary?

  22. By break-up I was talking about the Jesse DeAnna break-up. I can only imagine Jeremy was doing the same thing the rest of us were doing at the event, adding to the over $500,000 in toys donated to charity and socializing with others from Dallas. There were no media or PR people there or speakers. It really is a shame that your natural reaction is to question his purpose in going to an event in his own city that has nothing to do with publicity. That really is sad. Should he just stay home and avoid people altogether or is going to work and out for lunch also a ploy for publicity? I even heard a rumor that he waited in line for over an hour to get into the event just like the rest of us. Sure sounds like a PR move to me (obvious sarcasm)!! Please!!

  23. “Bigger” pro seems to refer to Cheryl b/c of the “overweight” issue brought up this season. The married partner would then be Drew or Emmitt…I’d be highly disappointed if it was either of them!

  24. Did you guys see this?

    Wow, that Mary Delgado really is a catch.

    The winner of ABC’s The Bachelor was busted late Saturday after allegedly getting into a drunken row at a nightspot in Del Rio, Texas, and then tussling with cops.

    Mark Scott, warden for Del Rio’s Val Verde Correctional Facility, tells E! News that Delgado refused to leave Lorina’s Cantina after being asked by managers. The police were called, and she was initially arrested for public intoxication and disorderly conduct.

    She earned an extra charge of resisting arrest, Scott says, after she allegedly started screaming at officers in the squad car and kicked the radio.

    With the help of her Bachelor rose-bestowing partner, Byron Velvick, Delgado posted bail and was released a few hours later.

    Delgado may need some work on her anger management.

    The 40-year-old was arrested in 2007 in her native Florida after she allegedly punched Velvick in the face. She was charged with one count of domestic battery in that incident, but the charge was later dropped.

    The 43-year-old Velvick popped the question to Delgado after giving her the final rose on the matchmaking reality series’ sixth season back in 2004. While the couple has yet to wed, they are—believe it or not—still together.

  25. Jeremy and Aubrey seemed very comfortable with each other at the Tabu Party. He seemed in no hurry to get out of there to his other party with his Dallas contingency. Are we suppsed to believe that he had no idea what he was getting into? Come’on, hiis Price Eric costume matched up with her being Ariel, something like that had to be pre established! Early in the eveninjg his costume included a chunky big blue gem-like ring which he wore – but by the end of the night Aubrey was wearing on her left hand! while they cuddled on the lounge. He either is or was with her in some way. Whatever, it’s his own business who he wants to date. But it’s lile “please” said he should own up to it and not make it look like he was caught up in this situation like a little lamb.

  26. I believe Jeremy has repeatedly stated that he was Aubrey’s guest. He told me he was. He never tried to hide it, and has never changed his story. He told me he asked her for an idea for a costume and she said she was going as Ariel from the Little Mermaid and so I imagine he wore something that would compliment the costume. He seems like a guy that wants to have a general plan. No one is saying he was “caught up in this situation like a little lamb” and I think those who are twisting what people are saying, like that are being naive and trying to make things more than they really are. He went to a party with a friend as her guest/date/or whatever. Who cares? Halloween is a fun time of year and I am sure a Halloween party in Vegas was a nice change from the same old parties here in Dallas. I mean come on, its Vegas, I want to go!

    I assume most people who post here and other places have friends, right? And I assume that you hang out with those friends. I assume that maybe a few people have even gone on a date with a friend or two and then afterward thought you should just remain friends. Maybe that is what happened with these two. Point is, they are both adults, they can do what they want, and people can say what they want, but really it is all silly. She may not be that bad of a person. None of us know her so we can only comment on what the media says and they are ALWAYS RIGHT, right (this includes direct quotes, because people are NEVER misquoted)?

  27. I just wanted to say “hi Steve” – you make my reality life pure joy! I have some questions for you if you can find the time (I’ve been moving for the past 12 months and am closing in on the last season!) YUCK!

    Seriously, could I pick your brain sometime?
