The “Bachelorette” Recap Including Sean’s Radio Interview, and What Will Happen Sunday Night?

July 17th, 2012 | 126 Comments | Posted in Bachelor Pad 3, The Bachelorette 8 - Emily

A few things to get to before today’s column. For those who have never been around on the “Tell All” episodes, these aren’t regular recaps only because, well, there’s just way less material to work with than a normal episodes with dates, roses, cheesy lines, etc. Same thing with the finale on Sunday. Next Monday’s recap will just be more of a summary of what we saw and since the ATFR is live, obviously I’ll have my thoughts on that. Also, I expect to have as many of your episode-by-episode “Bachelor Pad” spoilers as I can sometime this week, or by the latest next Monday, since it’ll be premiering that night. I’ve got most of it now but finalizing a few things. And after watching last night’s “Bachelor Pad” teaser, looks like we’re in for another season of debauchery. So next Monday you’ll have your “Bachelorette” recap and my final thoughts on this season, plus your “Bachelor Pad” spoilers. Then starting next Tuesday for the following 8 weeks, you’ll get your “Bachelor Pad” recap, along with your Thursday “Reader Email” column and continuing with the live video blogs that night. Also, your “Big Brother” recapper, Scott Ottersen is back this season with columns on Fridays and Mondays so check those out if you’re a fan of that show. I’ve never watched more than 5 minutes of “Big Brother,” hence the reason another writer covers it.

Even though I’m not much of a picture guy, I did set up an Instagram account this past weekend using my same Twitter handle, “RealitySteve.” Maybe it’ll force me to post more pictures. Or not. Maybe I’ll just use it to post some more of Maddie laying on the bed all day. Or eating a Frosty Paw. Or running at the dog park. Either way, you can follow me there now if you have an Instagram account and I’ll do my best to start posting more pictures.

This morning here in Dallas, Sean appeared on the Kidd Kraddick in the morning radio show with his sister, Shay. Not too many major spoilers or anything, but they talked about a lot of things regarding the show. You can listen to it by pressing the “play” button below:

Good to know that Sean never actually ran through the streets of Prague yelling Emily’s name, and that was actually taken from their hide-and-go-seek game they played on the group date the next day. And it was good to hear his sister admit that the family really liked Emily and they could tell Sean fell for her. Hey, maybe Emily would’ve picked him if they didn’t serve armadillo and instead served Pesto Chicken Paninis from her MixandMatchMama.com website. For sure Sean would be engaged right now if they served that and not some made up prank suggested to them by the producers. And oh yeah, throw in a Peach Bundt and a side of Snickerdoodle Neiman Marcus bars as dessert. Quick plug: I will be in studio next Monday morning with Kidd Kraddick talking about the finale from the night before, and previewing “Bachelor Pad” which premieres that night.

I know a lot of your are still asking me what’s going on with Fleiss’ tweets and my answer is still exactly the same as it was last week. I have no idea what he’s talking about. However, I had someone in the media email this link last Friday that I found interesting. Check it out by clicking here. This was filed in California court last Thursday. Maybe this is what he’s referring to. I don’t know. All I know is that he’s been making these cryptic tweets since last Saturday, and I’ve yet to be contacted by my lawyers from their side about any breach of the agreement I signed. And I don’t expect to be because, well, there hasn’t been any breach of the agreement on my end whatsoever, nor do I plan there to be. But quite an interesting lawsuit they filed against one of their own, no? Dude was funneling $600k into his own account. I’d say that’s some pretty shady stuff, so maybe that’s what got Fleiss all riled up. I have no idea.

I don’t know why it’s become an issue once again, but let me address any “Frequently Asked Questions” link people seem to ask me about. You know what’s funny? If I EVER did a FAQ link, which I’ll never do, but if I did, you know what one of the questions would be that’d have to go in there? “Hey, how come you don’t have a FAQ link on your site?” As I’ve said numerous times before, I have no intention of ever sitting down and crafting a FAQ link because, no matter if I do, repetitive questions are still going to get asked. Especially since any FAQ link would be about 5 pages long worth of questions I get asked numerous times. And I honestly don’t believe that anyone with a question for me is willing to check my site first, see if there’s a FAQ link, then search through all the questions before asking me in an email. They’re just gonna email me the second a question pops into their head. Which is what I expect. I’m not Wikipedia or Google. I don’t have to answer anything I don’t feel like asking. So yeah, when the “are the names on the roses” question comes up, I like to have a little fun with it, since I’ve answered it so many times. I guarantee if you google that, you can probably find the answer anyway.

A few of you seemed to take issue with, “Well Steve, some readers are new to your site and don’t know the answers to your questions and don’t want to go back and read through to find it.” Exactly my point. Every single column that I put up I guarantee you is being looked at for the first time by someone new. I can’t help that. So of course I’ll always have new readers. I understand that. But nowhere on my site does it say, “Reality Steve: The guy who answers every question you have about the ‘Bachelor,’ ‘Bachelorette,’ or ‘Bachelor Pad.’” I’m a sarcastic ass sometimes. I know this. Been this way since 5th grade. But don’t take everything I say so personal. This site isn’t for everyone. I’ve said that numerous times. If you don’t like it, then by golly, you certainly don’t have to read it. I’m just having fun with my site like I always have. In this day and age, people seem to be so sensitive to things they read, when in reality, it’s a silly TV show that I love to make fun of. You either get it, or you don’t. And it’s just funny to me when people seem to take me making fun of the “why is the driveway always wet” so personally. If it was a personal attack on the people sending in the question, uhhhh, don’t you think I’d be posting their email address or referencing them by name? That would be a personal attack and uncalled for. I don’t. I make fun of it, don’t answer it, and move on to the next email. I could be A LOT worse and lot more vicious in the “Reader Emails” if I wanted to, but I’m not. It’s all fun and games. Sometimes I just wish people wouldn’t take such offense to Every. Word. Out. Of. My. Mouth. It’s ok. Take a deep breath. Just having fun.

  1. My wife works with a woman who thinks she is perfect. I’m not exactly why she thinks she’s perfect. She’s an alcoholic, has bad acne, is overweight, cusses like a sailor while claiming to be a christian, puts up with an abusive husband, takes money from his account without telling him to take her boyfriend out to lunch, etc etc etc.

    But she thinks she is perfect……

    Well damn, if thats perfect then I must be one of Jesus’ disciples.

  2. Responding to previous comments on my comment about the “be naughty dot com” takeover ad after page 3 of RealitySteve:
    (1) RS *does* make money on his ads. He has said so.
    (2) I shouldn’t have to get a “better browser” just to combat the crap ware that is running behind this website.
    (3) And–if you read carefully you’ll note this happens on an android phone (new model within the last year). If you know of a “better browser” that works on an android phone AND you have tested it both before and after, then let me know what browser that is.

  3. kasey – i highly doubt the people bashing emily are men.

    i couldn’t agree with you more, brady. i seriously don’t see how people can be so critical of emily. as women, we should stand up for each other, not rip one another to shreds. even if emily has cosmetic surgery…SO WHAT? we all face pressure to look a certain way so if ANYTHING…you should feel empathetic towards her, and bad that she felt she had to go to those lengths!

    ps. iheartvino, i’d rather have poor grammar than be ugly :) just sayin’.

  4. @Jessica, I’m no Emily Maynard (for those who are into the whole plastic barbie look) but I’m no ugly duckling either. And actually, I think I’d rather be ugly than have bad grammar. Then at least no one would assume I was an idiot for not knowing the difference between “your” and “you’re,” and “they’re” and “their.” Just sayin’.

  5. Jessica said: “………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..you should feel empathetic towards her, and bad that she felt she had to go to those lengths!”

    Emily is gorgeous, rich, famous, on television, and seems not to have a care in the world, yet WE should all feel empathetic and bad for her? Um, ok. Where’s the “Donate to Emily” button when you need it? I sure want to be first in line to offer my financial contribution toward future cosmetic procedures to further boost her self esteem.

    Just sayin…

    P.S. I am loving how y’all are calling all these gorgeous ladies “ugly”. If you only knew!

  6. Time to address some of the aforementioned comments:

    I am a male in my late twenties, and I don’t find Emily very attractive at all, except for the fact that she has a killer body (artificially enhanced, remember). Her forehead is too big for her face, her hair is bleached to all hell, her teeth are too big and unnaturally white, and her face is so full of botox that she has ZERO facial expressions, she is not very well-spoken and finally, she has the personality of a brick wall. I have absolutely zero attraction to her. Emily O’Brien from Ben’s season is exponentially more attractive and appealing to me.

  7. well, different people are attracted to different things…makes the world go ’round i suppose.

    nope, i’m not 13. 24, actually.

    who found out michael chan is embarrassed? that’s pretty funny. what are the details on that? lol

  8. @brady- i’m ugly? that’s the best u could come up with? ouch, that really hurts coming from some random thing hiding behind a computer..and, btw, i actually do know that nobody1 is a man.. so, no, “your” more stupider than the stupidest!!!! lol..

    @iheartvino, @jovismom, @karynr, @liz123, @cammie and anyone else i might have left out.. wow, thanks so much for defending me.. “youre” (hehe) opinions of me are those that i actually care about bc ive had the pleasure of getting to know u all.. some of the sweetest, funniest, most wonderful, and classiest ladies around.. i would defend u as if we had been friends forever, as well.. “your” truly the best xoxo

    one more thing, miss brady- i could care less that u called me ugly.. there are many other attributes i consider far more important than my appearance.. apparently, that seems to be all u care about.. i thank god everyday that i dont have hatred like u do.. u might “think” im ugly on the outside (although u have no idea what i actually look like), but i can guarantee u that my heart and the hearts of all the girls i named above are far more beautiful than yours will ever be..

  9. Thanks cammie99 for posting that link. I’ve been with this site for awhile now, but I never post any comments because some of the people here really are just so rude. What happened to common courtesy, politeness and respect? Anyone know what I mean? I’ve gone back to just reading Steve’s posts and this is the first time in a long time I read the comments and I read people calling each other basically ugly and stupid? Some people should be ashamed of themselves for the way they act.

  10. @jessica13.. what i said to brady applies to u as well.. never once did i say emily was ugly.. i dont know why im being called ugly all of a sudden, but ok? u think im ugly, well that just sucks considering all of my self-esteem was based purely on what u think i look like.. thanks a lot.

  11. @nobody1- yes, i did get a kick out of that comment ; ) “your one of the ugly ones” lol..

  12. @rustypup- i agree.. and if u go back and read any of my other comments, i am ALWAYS the one trying to mediate and remind people to be respectful.. i dont think ive ever disrespected anyone on this site.. it’s a shame that people have to go below the belt with some of these comments.. its sad, really.. and im sorry if i offended u in my reply.. but at some point, i need to stick up for myself..

  13. *i COULDNT care less ; )

    oh, and apparently im commenting too fast.. hate these stupid pop-ups!!!

  14. @kasey, I heart you! You don’t need us- you’re doing just fine defending yourself! For the record, kasey is FAR from ugly so you’re insult is truly meaningless!!!

  15. *”you’re” insult…. For those of you that wouldn’t see the sarcasm without the quotes. Hahaha!!!

  16. There is witty sarcasm, then there is Critical sarcasm that could be harshly construed.

  17. Umm, I kind of meant it to be “harshly construed” after she called my friend ugly for no apparent reason. Kasey is always the nicest one here & didn’t deserve that.

  18. Wow, has this site ever turned into a hate and retaliate board. People calling other people “ugly” etc. So sad..it used to be such a fun place to post comments about what Steve has to say about the Bachelor/Bachelorette, but it looks like those days are long gone.

  19. @liz123- i heart you too! : )

    @diane- it still is.. im just surprised i got caught up in the mix..im usually the person that tries to stay out of the drama and change the subject by talking about hair or something haha..

  20. Just disgusting, how Emily can be so stupid and think she can love more than one man in few weeks, she is as piece of meat waiting for somebody to grab it. To me this is filthy show

  21. she looks amazing like texas barbie, but i have a feeling theres alot of built up depression. thers so much more of her that the camera doesnt show…and i wanna see it
