An update on the video blog situation: Last week’s video is gone. I spoke with Vokle, they said every video that happened last Thursday seemed to be having technical difficulties, they’ve fixed the problem, but that the archived video is gone. Oh well. Nothing I can do about that. I’m moving this weeks video blog up to tonight since Olivia and Nicholas have asked to be on again. They’ve been in town since last Friday as they came out for Easter weekend, and they are pretty fired up to be on again. So tune in tonight at 9PM EST/6PM PST after a day of taking them to see the Lorax, getting them all hopped up on candy, and then taking them shopping. If you thought they got delirious two weeks ago on the show, just wait til tonight.
Also, even though I’m doing the live video blog tonight instead of tomorrow, I’ll still be doing a “Reader Emails,” and “Dr. Reality Steve” column tomorrow with all the emails I’ve received over the last 2 1/2 weeks. Plus, if I get some time tonight, I might also throw in my thoughts on “Survivor,” “Celebrity Apprentice,” “Idol,” and “DWTS” since I have yet to do that this season. After this week, things should be back to normal. But after being gone all last week, then having the kids in town since Friday, I just haven’t been able to get much time in front of the computer.
If you’re a fan of the “Bachelor” franchise, or even if you’re not, I suggest you watch VH1′s “Couples Therapy.” Think what you want about Kasey and Vienna, but they went on the show to figure out what was going on in their relationship. Well, in last week’s episode Kasey opened up about a pretty traumatic experience in his life that I’m pretty sure none of us knew about before. Whether you liked Kasey on the show or hated him, I think anyone with any kind of heart might understand him a little better after watching this clip from last week’s episode. Very touching, very moving, and you feel awful that he went through this. Hell, you feel awful for ANYONE that’s ever gone through this, but to open up about it on national television took a lot of courage so I commend the guy for that. If you don’t feel for the guy after hearing about his past, something is wrong with you. I don’t want to sit here and psychoanalyze Kasey, but if you don’t think what happened in his past has shaped some of the behavior we saw on TV, then I don’t know what to tell you. Knowing this really explains a lot. At least to me it does. Watch the clip below courtesy of “Couples Therapy” on VH1.
For those interested in watching the show, it’s on Wednesday nights on VH1. It’s only aired three episodes (tonight is the 4th), and if you go to this link, you can see clips of previous episodes. I think they have the full episode up of only last week’s episode, but it’s worth the watch. Definitely a lot more “reality” involved in a show like this than say, oh I don’t know, the “Bachelor.”
