Some news in the “Bachelor” and “Bachelorette” world to get to today, along with Maddie’s triumphant return to YouTube, which went about as well as I expected. Which is to say, well, you’ll have to see for yourself. I think Scotch may have one upped her in the howling department. But then again, Scotch had Courtney standing next to him when he howled, and Courtney is better looking than me, so he had a good reason. I’d howl at Courtney too. And whistle. And say vulgar things under my breath. But that’s just me.
Jenna’s conference call with the media is today. Obviously it won’t be transcribed by the time this column is up, so if you’re looking to read it, I will tweet it out either tonight or tomorrow, courtesy of WetPaint.com. I’m sure Jenna will chalk it up to being drunk and tired, but who knows? Maybe she’ll surprise us and start lashing out. We can only hope.
First I wanted to start by congratulating Chris Lambton and Peyton Wright for the new show they just landed on HGTV called “Going Yard.” The show begins in the spring and you can read the press release right here. The mini description of the show is:
In Going Yard, Lambton, the co-owner of a landscaping company in Cape Cod, Massachusetts, will transform neglected backyards into spectacular outdoor spaces suitable for entertaining family and friends. In each episode, he and his team will trick out a homeowner’s yard with such features as patios, arbors, water features and fire pits. In addition, Lambton’s fiance Peyton Wright will join the family business; pitching-in with design projects on the show and helping homeowners plan their first party in their new yard.
Another former cast member, Erica Rose, did an interview with WetPaint you can read right here. Pretty funny. I never actually thought about the fact they had a lawyer this season who said the “verdict is in” line who also happened to be named Erika. I’d sue for gimmick infringement. Is Courtney trying to be Michelle Money? Hmmmmmm, not sure about that. #1, Michelle is hotter than Courtney. #2, she’s also funnier. I think Michelle had much more comedic value during Brad’s season, even though plenty of people didn’t take it that way. Courtney is just coming across as a giant bitch.
Speaking of Michelle, probably the #1 question I’ve been asked since “Bachelor Pad” ended this summer is “Are Michelle and Graham together?” She did an interview recently where she finally confirmed that they are very good friends, but are not together. She is single. So all former “Bachelorette” contestants, the line forms to the left. Although I know that’s already started.
And now, the moment you’ve all been waiting for, Maddie’s return to YouTube. In the video, I try and get her to howl, I answer a reader email with her on my lap, give a few more thoughts on Emily being the next “Bachelorette,” and end it by updating what I can about the lawsuit. Enjoy…
One thing I forgot to mention in regards to Emily. I’ve read a few of your emails suggesting that it’s horrible of her Ricki will be subject to meeting so many guys, and what a horrible thing to do to a 5 year old, etc. Look, I’m sure Ricki will be on the show at some point, but it’s not like Ricki is going to be on every single episode and meet every single guy. Probably gonna be no different in how they handled Jason’s season with Ty. Ricki will probably only meet the final 2 guys if I had to guess. Lets quit acting like Ricki is gonna be Emily’s co-host. Jason had a child when he did the show, and that seemed to work out perfectly fine for him. I’m sure Ricki will be ok. I didn’t realize so many of you were all the sudden spokespeople for CPS.
