It’s amazing how impatient some people can be. I said it last Tuesday in the column, and I reiterated it again in Thursday’s column that I did not know when I was going to get my “Women Tell All” information. Could’ve been Friday night, could’ve been Saturday, could’ve been Sunday. Regardless, it’s amazing how many people still ask, “When are you posting the ‘Women Tell All’ spoilers?” Oh, I don’t know. How about when I have them? I got a little info on Saturday, but I knew there was more out there, so I waited until I could get as much as I could. If there’s more I get tonight or in the next few days, I’ll include it in tomorrow’s column, but as I also stated last week, there’s just not much to spoil on a show like this. So here are all the notes/spoilers I was able to gather from the taping up to this point.
A lot has been said over the past couple weeks in the tabloids, internet sites, etc regarding all these crazy things that seem to be happening behind the scenes. Just know that none of it is true. As I’ve stated since Dec. 14th, Ben is engaged to Courtney, he’s been engaged to her since Nov. 16th in Switzerland, they’ve stayed engaged ever since, they are still engaged as we speak, and all the other garbage you read in the tabloids is just that – garbage. Just a way to sell magazines and trying to take focus away from the spoiler that’s been out there for two months already. I know a lot of you are upset with the ending, but you’re gonna have to accept it because it’s true and these two are still together, and you will have yet more confirmation of t
-The girls in attendance were Monica, Brittney, Erika, Elyse, Jenna, Rachel, Kacie B, Jamie, Jennifer, Amber T, Jaclyn, Samantha, Blakeley, Emily, Nicki, and Casey S
-If you follow me on Twitter, you know that on Friday I tweeted they somehow got Courtney to show up for the taping, which she did. Lindzi was not in attendance.
-Courtney was pretty much under attack by the girls for the most part, but was actually pretty quiet throughout. Apologized for her behavior and defended herself as much as she could. Sounds like a lot of the girls weren’t buying it and kept going after her, forcing Chris Harrison to step in numerous times basically telling them to shut up and quit talking over each other.
-Emily and Courtney had their say over the fight on the show, and apparently it wasn’t nearly as bad as people might suspect it could’ve been, although both Emily and Courtney ended up crying at some point. Courtney admitted she didn’t handle it right when Emily apologized to her.
-Samantha seemed to be the one to voice her opinion the loudest about Courtney being very aggressive, calling her names, and being obnoxious – basically exactly what she’s been doing on her Facebook fan page and Twitter account the last two weeks. That chick is totally trying way too hard to keep her name in the limelight for someone that no one really gives a sh** about. However, you can pretty much pencil her in for “Bachelor Pad 3.” She’s a trainwreck.
-While Courtney was on the hot seat, there was a girl who actually went up and gave her a hug, but I’m not sure yet who it was.
-Chris Harrison was VERY sick during filming. Breaks were taken and Chris actually was given an injection of some sort at one point.
-At one point during filming, Monica actually pulled out a tampon and asked Jenna if she’d accept the final tampon. No idea if that will make air.
-Ben took the hot seat and was confronted by the girls as well, and apparently defended things he did, but all in all, wasn’t nearly as juicy as expected. The women were hard on him, but he gave a lot of canned, robotic answers.
-The after party was at Las Palmas, where Ames and Ryan Park were the first ones to get dibs on the new “fresh meat” this season. Ames is a piece of work. Dude, nobody cares that you went to the party and took pictures with every single person there and had to show us on your Twitter account. Talk about a guy milking his fame. Geesh. Make it a little less obvious. And enough with the photo shopping backgrounds too. What an odd bird.
-Saturday afternoon was a “Bachelor Gives Back” event at the Sheraton LAX with the Boys and Girls Club with free arts, where pretty much all them stuck around and painted arts and crafts with kids. I’m sure this will be shown next Monday as well.
-Saturday night, the women went to Katsuya in LA where Ames and Michael Stagliano joined in. So to all the other bachelors from past seasons, just know that Ames, Ryan, and Michael Stagliano have already laid the ground work for who they’re going after. You’ve got some catching up to do.
-As we speak, most of the girls are still out in LA partying. They are headed out tonight again in LA, and I’m sure Ames and Michael will be tagging along if I had to guess. Go get em’ guys!
ADDED: As mentioned in Thursday’s live video blog, and we heard Chris say in his voice over for next week, I just forgot to throw in this column, but Shawntel does come to “Women Tell All” to talk about coming on the show, and, probably to plug her book.
