For all your episode-by-episode spoilers of Ashleys season, either click on the “Bachelorette Ashley Spoilers” link at the top of the page, or click here. Also, your episode-by-episode spoilers for “Bachelor Pad 2” are now also in a link at the top of the page, or or click here. You’ve been warned.
Wanted to mention that we implemented phase 1 of our site re-design over the weekend. The columns from our new writers on “Keeping up with the Kardashians,” “Big Brother,” and “RW/RR Challenge” are still at the top of the page, but have their each column separated by post. If you’re logged in to leave comments for me, you can leave it for any of them as well, so feel free to do so. We have more shows and writers coming up, so, bear with us as we roll out some of the new looks of the site slowly. We’re gonna be trying some new things and new looks just trying to get a feel of how we want to do things, but don’t want to start anything major until after the “Bachelorette” ends next week.
Also, due to my Thursday morning flight to Vegas, I’m gonna have this week’s “Reader Emails” up on Thursday. My guess is I’ll finish it on the plane and that’s when I’ll post it – as long as my flight has Wifi of course. Those are always hit or miss. How every flight in America doesn’t have Wifi is beyond me. I pretty much only fly American, and basically half their flights have it and half don’t. I believe mine Thursday will, but you never know.

Before I get to the “Men Tell All” info, I wanted to clarify something regarding the Ben and Britt stuff I wrote about on Friday. Like I said in the column, their “relationship” just happened to be a casualty of the story, which was Ben was spending time with someone that’s not Ashley. It just so happened to be Britt. I never used the word dating. If people chose to run with that, that’s their own problem. When talking about people from this “Bachelor” franchise, using the word “dating” with any of them is pointless. Unless the couple officially comes out and announces it, none of them are “dating.” The whole point was to tell you that Ben has been seen with Britt on more than one occasion. Obviously, Britt is very much into him. I have no idea what’s going on in their relationship. No idea how serious it is, or isn’t. However, the point being, if Ben was really Ashley’s final guy, do you honestly think he’d be spending that much time “hanging out” with another girl, especially one from Ashley’s season, as much as he reportedly has? The answer to that would be “no.” Of course Britt is going to take to Twitter and deny it. What’d you expect her to say?
Not to mention this: Why did Britt and Ben HAVE to see each other? I mean, plenty of these people all meet once the show’s over and hook up or whatever, but Ben is the final two guy and is still being seen on the show. People are still supposed to believe he has a chance to be Ashley’s final pick. I actually think it’s pretty shitty of both of them that they couldn’t have at least waited until AFTER he was actually off the show on TV before they “met up” for whatever it is they’re meeting for. Sure, they were flirting on Twitter, and I’m sure they’d emailed each other, and even talked on the phone. But they didn’t have to meet up before he was eliminated from the show, which goes to show there’s gotta be some interest on both their parts. I just think they made a bad judgment in seeing each other before we saw him off TV and I’m sure that’s what ABC is pissed at. All these other girls from Brad’s season are all talking and flirting with guys from Ashley’s season, which is fine. Even though they’re technically not supposed to, ABC doesn’t care because those guys are gone. But when Ben is doing it, and he’s the final two guy, doesn’t really look good for your franchise and basically gives away the ending. I have no idea what’s going with those two, and it’s not my business to know or care. It is my business however to give you info that proves my point of Ben being the final two guy this season, and that’s what I was doing. I can’t help it when other people jump to conclusions.
-Ok, let’s get to your “Men Tell All” spoilers. These are gonna be pretty short and sweet since nothing really major happened. Basically your typical “Tell All” show where not a whole hell of a lot happens. They just make you think it does. Well, that is until the afterparty which has some good nuggets. As for the “Men Tell All” itself:
-Despite what they want you to believe in the previews last night, once again, they lied. Bentley is NOT on the show. Chris says on the show that Bentley was asked to come on but had a prior family commitment. Total BS. Bentley was never even asked to come on the show. They basically knew the audience had enough of the guy and they didn’t want to bring him on, even if it was to apologize. They got all the run they needed out of him. He’s not on the show.
-There’s discussion about Jeff the Mask and Drunk Tim, but it’s done while they are in their seats
-Michelle Money does get in the hot seat to briefly discuss her text message she sent to Ashley regarding Bentley
-The only three guys brought up to the hot seat are William, Ryan, and Ames. William gets ripped on by the guys pretty good, and Ryan and Ames are both asked would they want to be the “Bachelor.” I believe both of them don’t give a definitive answer.
-Jason, Ali, and DeAnna are brought on stage to talk to Ashley about life in the spotlight, her journey, blah blah blah. Time kill.
-They show an extended clip of “Bachelor Pad.” Only thing I got from it based on what I heard was that apparently they have shot of Kasey and Vienna having sex in one of the rooms with the night vision camera. Pretty much like Kovacs and Elizabeth last season. Sweet. I knew those two couldn’t possibly last over 2 weeks in that house without doing it.
-Ashley obviously comes out and talks to the guys and takes questions from them
After party tidbits:
-Nick and Natalie, shall we say, were quite cozy
-Ben C. and Erica Rose were making out
-And Holly and Blake continue the worst kept secret in America that they’re a couple. She can’t say anything because “Bachelor Pad” hasn’t started and doesn’t want to give anything away, especially since her and Michael are a team in the finals
The “After the Final Rose” was taped yesterday. If I get info, I’ll put it in Thurday’s column. I can’t imagine there’s much that happened, but who knows? Ashley and JP got engaged in Fiji, and unless something crazy happened in the last week or so, I expect that to be what we see when that show airs. On to last night…
