Two More Contestants Confirmed, Final Four Information, and the Charlotte Airport Pictures

A lot of links and pictures to get to today, but let me first start off by talking about the charity event this past Saturday night in Dallas for the CAP (Child Abuse Prevention) Center, which formally announced on Saturday they are changing their name to Family Compass. A very fun event all around, and no, I did not have a date. Decided that bringing someone I barely knew probably wasn’t a good idea, so, I went it alone. Which was fine. Also for those curious, Melissa Rycroft, who was supposed to be the honoree, was unable to attend, so I didn’t run into her. I don’t know what reason she gave, but, she did donate two tickets to the DWTS finale to the live auction that ended up going for $7,000, so I’m guessing that all but made up for her not appearing. All in all, a very fun night, and a special shout out to Meredyth Childress who had requested me to be their “celebrity” for their table. It was great meeting her and her husband who were very generous throughout the night. So thank you to Family Compass for putting on another successful event and I hope they ask me back again next year.

By the way, I’ve never seen a full episode of “Big Rich Texas” before but Melissa Poe was also one of the waiters that night and I had the pleasure of talking to her briefly and posing for a picture (shown above). I wish I had seen an episode of her show before so I at least knew more about her, but nonetheless, she was very generous as well. I was surprised at how many people were asking me about Emily’s “Bachelorette” season. Didn’t think that many people cared, but sure enough, people wanted to know what was happening. You know what question I didn’t get asked once all night long? “Why is the driveway always wet?” Thank God. I might’ve had to pour ice water on someone’s lap if I did get asked that. Great event, a lot of money raised, and I even got to mow down on two plates of dinner with my friend, Emily Lites of Emily’s Smile Boxes.

  1. “Decided that bringing someone I barely knew probably wasn’t a good idea, so, I went it alone.”

    actually means:

    No one stepped up to be my date, so I was forced to go solo.

  2. cammie99:
    Chickie, you really should get some therapy for 1) anger management and 2) stalking. Sheesh! Get a life hater.

  3. @Missbitchy: Your concern into my well being is touching.

    P.S. Did anyone else derive any anger from my comment? No? I didn’t think so. It’s always funny how those accusing ME of being angry are the ones that spew the most hateful comments. ;)

  4. @Cammie, haha, no ch*t on that one. He/She’s quite the name caller. No backbone, just an angry little person who thinks everyone needs therapy.

    I thought the same dang thing when he said no date. I just can’t imagine what his problem is, unless the girls can’t stomach his arrogance. Would be a deal breaker for me.

  5. dreamchi back for your weekly mental & social health round up on the RS blog-o-locos comment board.

    starting off the week, i can report that a small hoard of racist & racist apologist bachelor fanatics have crawled out from under their rocks to express their preference for and support of the white only bachelor dating game. not surprising for a group of sorry fanatics obsessed with a racist dating show. fear not you racist bachelor fanatics. you are wanted! the kkk & the nazi party are looking for a few new members just like you. join today! try not to burn down any homes, a-holes.

    moving on to the ongoing comment board battle between the RS love stalkers and the RS hate stalkers. a couple of months back, when this reporter first began studying the conflict, the love stalkers – (those loyal RS fanatics who rush in to defend this somewhat douchey, though funny, tv show blogger who spends his time making fun of & insulting people, from anyone who dares to insult or make fun of him, as if they were maternally bound to defend their first & only child with their very lives) – were coming out ahead as the craziest of the RS stalkers. but in recent weeks the hate stalkers have been breaking through to the front of the pack. these RS obsessed haters claim to hate the blogger but compulsively and continually read his blog appearing to hang on to and comment upon his every word, choice of beverage, manner of dress, & daily & social habits, – emerged as a group of pathetic little meanies with no place more meaningful to express their petty little hatred. again, & again, & again, & again. And this week fascinating (ok, not fascinating, but since i’m on the subject) new information has been publicly exposed about the hate stalkers by none other than the hate stalkers themselves. this week’s breaking news – the hate stalkers did not begin their existence as hate stalkers. the hate stalkers are simply spurned RS love stalkers! oh my gosh. while the love stalkers are fighting to break back through to the lead these new revelations have brought the spurned love stalker-hate stalkers far ahead of the pack of crazies. apparently these former love stalkers became filled with obsessive hate for this tv blogger who they previously adored, despite his habitual practice of hurling insults left & right, when he turned his typical behavior in their direction. shocker of shockers! now the hate filled, spurned love stalkers study & obsess over RS’s every word & gesture, hurling seething hate at every stop. you heard it here, folks. this week the spurned love stalker-hate stalkers have emerged as the far front runners in the RS stalkers’ race for crazy.

    finally, on to the blogger himself: while this reporter was appalled by this week’s video revelations of steve’s atrocious, unimaginative & lowest common denominator taste in music and food, this reporter cannot be too surprised as these tastes coincide with his atrocious taste in television viewing. however, back to the mental health theme of this report, this reporter was pleasantly surprised by the blogger’s refreshingly sane perspective on the ongoing conflict taking place on his comment board. after all, why would this blogger bother himself with the small group of obsessive stalkers, who, among all of his readers, make their home on his comment board, expressing their crazed & delusional levels of love & hate for his truly. if steve paid note of the obsessed hate stalkers continually hanging on to his every word and gesture and reacting with crazed, seething viciousness, or those love stalkers attempting to patrol his comment board and to protect him with undying maternal love, the guy might never be able to sleep again. he might need to consider the expense of a personal bodyguard. after all, who are these crazed stalkers, and are they hiding somewhere nearby, waiting to pounce with their uncalled for maternal smothering or their seething hate? steve gets some positive marks in the mental health department for ignoring the obsessed crazies making their home on his comment board. after all, why would he want to know what this small group of crazy obsessives is saying? only a comedian reporter impressed by the level of crazy would take the time.

    sorry kids. while i did create a few paragraphs especially for you, i did commit the crime of run-on sentences.

    dreamchi signing off with your weekly RS mental health roundup

  6. @dreamchi,
    Huh?? In case you didn’t get the memo, 4/20 is over, it was Friday.

  7. @dreamchi I love your analysis of RS comments section/ commentators! Hilarious! I’m sure they’ll be negative comments coming your way from some of the crazies who take you too seriously and don’t get your humor. Hopefully everyone will lighten up and enjoy your humorous (and yet quite accurate) take on all of this! Love it!

  8. dreamchi, first, I personally do not need your “mental health roundup”, and I’m sure there are others that feel the same, but that’s not up to me to decide. Your posts are ridiculous, and as Cali Girl states, “420 is over” (awesome comment btw Cali!!). So please stop with your rambling rants..they’re annoying, boring, and take up wayyyyyyyyyy too much space. Thanks in advance for your consideration :-)

  9. @dreamchi

    I’m sure you think you’re funny or insightful….but you are nothing short of boring and monotonous.

    At least the haters (count me in) are funny and the most entertaining aspect of this blog ever since Steve jumped the shark.

    You on the other hand…..are ANNOYING as all hell.

  10. Melissa Poe commented on the facebook version of this picture, and she even said that no one took him up on his offer.

    Once again, there is no shame in being single/having trouble finding a date, a lot of your readers (I’m sure) understand and empathize – just be honest! It is a lot more endearing to be open about your less-than-strong dating life, rather than lying after not getting the results you wanted.

  11. @ aatxcutie – At last we finally agree on something!! “@dreamchi, are you on drugs or something?”
    @ CaliGirl – LOL!! Love it!
    @ dreamchi – I made an effort today to try and read your post but about half way through it I got a headache and felt like I couldn’t breathe… I don’t think I will be reading your comments anymore!
    @ missannmcd – couldn’t agree with you more… I don’t believe I have seen your screen name before, but cammie is ALWAYS like that…
    @ cammie99 – sounds like you’re the one who can’t get a date… Maybe if you go out and get laid you won’t be so angry all the time.

  12. I’m thinking dreamchi is using her bad ju-ju to drive us all away, even though the majority of us agree, it’s difficult to understand what point she’s trying to make, and that’s only IF we make it to the end. I, do not. Could not.

    Only a couple weeks until Emily’s season and looking forward to that. I hope that Steve will retain his slanted view of the show, just leave the snarky parts behind. It’s okay to make fun of the people on the show, but not the readers that come to your site with questions.

  13. @Dreamrambles: in case you didn’t get the memo, your looooooong winded comments are mostly overlooked.

    @Jovismom: Something tells me my bf wouldn’t be thrilled if I “went out on a date and got laid”. But hey…I appreciate you offering up your SO for the taking. P.S. Since you like taking shots below the belt, I’ll show you the same courtesy and suggest you get off these boards and go keep an eye on your spawn. There’s no telling what kind of mischief Jovi is getting into right now. And what the hell kind of name is Jovi anyway? Is that for a boy or a girl? Either way, you FAILED at naming the child.

    @ev81: I found it pretty desperate when RS made a public plea for a date to that charity function in his video blog last week. Can’t help but find it funny that he had no takers on that. :)

  14. @ cammie – You are pure evil… Jovi happens to be my cat’s name who I just recently (less then a month ago) had to put down because he had diabetes, a very severe case of it. Thanks for making me feel I had to bring that up to defend my cat that I loved for 12 years…. Hope your BF realize what a heartless “see you next Tueday” you are and leaves you! Poor guy…

  15. And BTW who the hell do you think you are telling people how to raise their kids, or that they may be getting into trouble, or that their name is terrible?! I hope you find peace soon.

  16. @dreamchi – count me in as someone who enjoys your posts. The “haters”, not so much. And, I agree with Steve’s assessment and attitudes towards them.

  17. omg you’re all on drugs!! who needs the bachelor when I have all of you for drama and entertainment…….at least dreamchi is highly intuitive and imaginative when she’s stoned haha!

  18. @JovisMom, I’m sorry to hear about your cat. I know how hard the loss of a pet can be.

    @Athena, sometimes I like what dreamchi has to say, but normally it’s just a little hard to follow given the extremely long run-on sentences. The other day he/she made a couple of comments that I agreed with. The one from last night was just too long-winded and didn’t seem to make much sense in my opinion.

    I don’t consider myself a RS “lover” or “hater.” RS has never insulted me personally, and I think sometimes people on here take his comments way too seriously. I’d have to say the main thing about RS lately that irritates me is knowing that he has the donate button there but hasn’t changed his eating out habits. The other night when asked if he eats out three meals a day, I was really hoping he would have said that he has had to cut back recently. I’ve been tight financially in the past (who hasn’t?) and I realized that I could save a lot of money by bringing my lunch to work and by not stopping for breakfast and coffee on the way to work every day. If I needed help to pay an attorney, I’d sure as heck cut back all ways possible on my own before going to other people for help. But to hear that he still goes to Corner Bakery EVERY day for breakfast? Doesn’t sit well with me. The traveling to CA and NY occasionally doesn’t bother me at all. It’s important to live your life and get away once in a while. He probably had those trips planned before he asked for donations. But the still eating out three times a day (while still having the donte button posted) is not cool in my opinion. Granted, eating out less wouldn’t pay off his attorney bills, but it’s just the principle of it.

  19. @Jovismom – I am so, so sorry about your cat. I know how difficult it is to lose a member of the family that has been with you for so long. I lost one of ours a couple of years ago; he was 16, and I think about him every day. But, I know he’s safe and in a better place.

    I think we need to start ignoring cammie..we’re only giving him/her the attention that he/she feels is necessary. This is one unstable individual, who seriously needs professional help. I, for one, refuse to read/comment on his/her posts anymore. It’s not worth my time or frustration.

  20. @ Dianne and CaliGirl – Thank you. It has been a rough month but thankfully my boyfriend has been wonderful, and I have another little kitty at home that is coming out of her shell.
    @ CaliGirl – I agree w\ you 100% on what you said to Athena. Dreamchi does make good and valid points but it is difficult to read her posts.
    @ Dianne – Sorry for your loss as well! It is hard! Jovi was an awesome cat! I agree w\ you on ignoring cammie… No sense in trying to talk or make sense out of someone who clearly has a screw loose.

  21. @JovisMom. I’m sure your new little kitty will come out of her shell in no-time! LOL@screw loose..too cute, and sooooo true!

  22. BTW, for anyone who didn’t have the chance (or didn’t care to) watch his blog last week, if you want to see it, it was question #23 when he was asked if he goes out to eat three times a day. (while asking for donations) Curious as to how other RS fans feel about this.

  23. Hey Siamese fighting fish: calm the f**k down.
    It’s not real..it’s tv.Just sit back and enjoy the show!
    No one will ever win the internets.

  24. CaliGirl, As far as what Steve spends his money on and what he’s doing to save it to pay his lawyers, I can understand why you’d think that cutting back on eating out would be a good idea. However, each of us has our own ideas about what “cutting back” looks like and how we’re going to approach it. Some people would eat at home, some would cut out their cable service, some would bike to work rather than driving their car, etc. My ex-hsb. thought I should have spent less on clothes when money was tight. Etc. We don’t know what things Steve IS doing to cut back – he certainly doesn’t seem to spend a lot on where he lives or what he wears and I don’t know about what he drives. Some people here think he should travel less for example, though that doesn’t seem to be something that bothers you like the food thing does…see what I’m getting at here?

    So, I’m not about to make judgments on how Steve handles his cash flow issues any more than I would want someone to make judgments about me and mine.

  25. @Jovismom: As an avid dog lover myself, I can put aside your nasty comments (even your extremely classy See You Next Tuesday comment) to say sorry to hear about your cat. I’ve had to put down a dog before and I know how hard that can be.

    THAT aside, if you don’t want people taking shots at you or yours, don’t start the trend. When you direct some BS at me about getting a date / getting laid / etc….that is personal and I will respond accordingly.

    Moral of the story….don’t dish it if you can’t take it.

    @Amy: all my drugs are of the legal variety! :)

    @Caligirl: good point! That also stuck with me after that particular video blog.

    @Dianne: by commenting ABOUT me, YOU aren’t doing a VERY good JOB of IGNORING me.

  26. @Caligirl, it kind of irks me too about Steve eating out all the time. But it’s not my business as I didn’t donate and won’t. If I had someone suing me, I wouldn’t expect my clients to come to my rescue. To each his own though!! I come by this site every day and give him “hits”.

  27. Thanks Athena, I do see what you mean. Maybe it’s just me, but I could never fathom reaching out to others (comeplete strangers, no less!) for help unless I had already began to cut back on ALL possible areas. I’m sure you’re right and hopefully Steve has cut back on certain expenses, dining out just doesn’t seem to be one of them. I just know from personal experience you can save A LOT of money by not eating out three times a day.

  28. Oops, complete. And you’re right, Amy- I should take the same mindset in that since I’m not donating, it’s really none of my business. :) I’ll continue to come to the site regularly and read the posts and comments and support RS by staying an avid reader.

  29. @ CaliGirl – Steve is a Bachelor and I’m guessing based on how his kitchen looks may not know how to cook lol!!! Maybe that is why he eats out so often!! Yes you save big $$$ by not eating out. Ramine Noodles are only .25 cents a package…

  30. @Jovismom, you have taken personal shot after shot after shot at people here for weeks now. How dare you act so freakin’ offended when someone takes one back at you!? Off the top of my head & without going back to old posts, I can list four things you have personally attacked people on: how productive they are at their jobs, whether they deserve their jobs or not, their mental health, & their sex and/or dating lives. So look, lady, it seems to me you have two choices: stop attacking people on a personal level or grow a much thicker skin.

    @dreamchi, thank God you’re not a real journalist because I don’t think you could recognize either an incomplete or a run-on sentence if it slapped you in the face. You act like people have no lives for commenting on this stupid blogger who blogs about this stupid TV show. If that’s how you feel about all of it, then why the hell are you reading and taking the time to leave the longest comments in the history of this blog?!

  31. @Liz, you nailed it girl. I’ve been her most recent target, then cammie, and now anyone that doesn’t agree with her. I love my cat, and even love RS’ dog Maddie, but if you’re going to dish the ch*t out, be woman enough to take it back.

    Jovi, you threw the first punch by suggesting cammie get laid, so don’t be offended when cammie returns the favor. At least she apologized – to which you didn’t even respond.

  32. Seriously you people need to get a life rather than sit here and belittle each other, who not to mention, are complete strangers!! Go volunteer your time or do something good rather than spew hatred!! It’s draining just glancing at the comments section of this blog….

  33. @Jgunn… I like your thinkin. But honestly, if this is how people like to spend their time, then I say just let them. It’s good for Steve’s business, which as an avid reader, becomes good for me too! :D

  34. Have they shut the ABC board down? I think all the crazies from THERE have found a new home HERE. Good lord. This pot is stirring more than a cajun crawfish fest.

  35. DallasMs – I think you may be right. I have a feeling Fleiss is paying some of these nasty posters (ie Liz123, cammie99, aatxcutie), so come onto Steve’s board just to stir the pot. Sad, isn’t it?

  36. Wow @Dianne – you’ve officially gone kooks with that one. Do you seriously believe that?

    Steve has recently emailed to apologize, and I haven’t said a “nasty” thing about RS since. You, on the other hand, are just a relentless b*tch with zero to offer here.

  37. @Dianne, I really wish that you were right & Fleiss was paying me, but alas I’m just an average, broke person who thinks you have gone off your rocker.

    @aatxcutie, please elaborate on the apology you received!

  38. @aatxcutie, show me where I wrote that you said anyting nasty about Steve? Please share your supposed “apology” from Steve..I’m sure we’d all love to see it. And what right do you have to say I have nothing to offer here? Since when are you the queen-bee of this blog? I’ll say what I want, when I want, and if you don’t like it, don’t read it.

  39. You all are the most judgemental pathetic people I have ever seen on a comment section. Why do you come to this site? ….To read the spoilers. You got butt hurt because RS was being snarky and hurt your feelings. Then he puts a dontate button up. RS is snarky. Thats why you come here. You can donate or not. You all (haters – lovers) go on these tangents about RS and each other. But the reality is………who cares. I feel sorry for the whole bunch of you.
    Please take a breath and think about what you have read before getting on your high horse & bashing what I have just written. Maybe if you do, some of you will get it.

  40. @Dianne – feels good doesn’t it? Now you’re copying me, saying if you don’t like it, don’t read it.

    I have no reason to share a personal email that Steve sent to me. I’m not that stupid as to get myself into trouble for posting a private email on a public message board, even if I can legally defend myself. I’ve gotten what I wanted from RS – so I have nothing else to say.

    Go troll elsewhere if you don’t like the comments.

  41. Oh my goodness, aatxcutie, you are quite the drama queen aren’t you? Trust me, I do not troll, I’ve been coming onto this board a heck of a lot longer than you have. This is the last comment you will see from me to you..I refuse to waste anymore positive karma on the likes of you.

  42. @Dianne OIC, you’re an OLD TIMER. How do you know how long I’ve been coming to this board? Are you that OCD that you watch how long I’ve been posting, or are you this mysterious webmaster, that doesn’t really exist?

  43. Who cares what and how much Steve eats or where or when? None of our business. As far as the donation issue. Don’t like it, don’t give. Whether you do give or not, no one has the right to tell anyone how to handle their finances. Again, none of our business. If you gave money, then feel butt hurt because you don’t like Steve spending money eating out, it’s like putting a condition on your act of charity. That is not true charity at all. We all have the freedom to live our lives as we see fit. I am very grateful for that and try not to infringe on the rights of others by guilt tripping them with my own sense of morality. None of my business.
    As I grow older I see with great clarity how much time I’ve wasted on other people’s sh*t and on negativity in general. Whether in thought, word or deed, what a useless occupation!. It’s like taking steps backwards instead of forward. Feuding/insulting others no longer makes me feel better about myself because I have grown beyond that. That kind of bitterness towards others, along with the self-hatred that causes one to act that way can only bring harm to one’s own spirit. You hurt your own self and sour your own soul. It’s just not worth it and it becomes a hindrance to one’s personal growth.

  44. The comments here are definitely better than RS’s column. Thanks for the entertainment!
