Back with another live video blog tonight at 9:00PM EST/6:00PM PST. Probably gonna be a little shorter show tonight. Maybe 40-45 minutes. Got some stuff to take care of later tonight, so I apologize in advance. But we’ll get to the questions as soon as possible. Also, I know if you watched last week’s video back afterwards, the two live video questions I took the sound is all screwed up and on delay. I emailed Vokle and they said they don’t know what caused that but we should be fine for tonight. Lets hope so. Gonna try it again, so if you want to ask a video question tonight you can. See you then.
Ahhhhh, yesterday the tabloids were at it again. Got numerous emails on the “Hey, Star is saying Roberto isn’t the next Bachelor” and “Did you hear that Emily wants to have her own reality show after the ‘Bachelorette’?” So as seems to be the case every Thursday, I guess I must address both of these. Thanks a lot tabloids. You really annoy me sometimes. So according to Star, they’re saying Roberto backed out of being the “Bachelor” because of this side piece he has in Connecticut, a good 3,000 miles from where he lives. From what I know, this Kara girl is someone he’s hooked up with before, but to say he turned down the “Bachelor” because of her is ludicrous. The fact that she gave Star the exclusive is all the more reason for you not to believe this girl is currently seeing Roberto. No way this guy would be with her if she just sold out to a tabloid to tell their story together. I checked with my sources last night, and as far as I know, nothings changed. Still say Roberto is going to be the Bachelor. However, they’re not announcing the next Bachelor until they go back in September to tape the “Bachelor Pad” finale, so that’s still another 8 weeks away. Plenty of time for more rumors and speculation to circulate. After watching Monday’s episode, it’s pretty apparent that if something happens with the Roberto deal, and for whatever reason he doesn’t end up being the Bachelor, it should come as no surprise that you should expect to see Sean in that role. No doubt. But as of now, it’s Roberto. I’ll keep you updated if anything changes and they go give it to Sean.
A little more tabloid insight for you. Did you actually read the story in Star? There’s a couple quotes from this Kara girl herself talking about Roberto, then a bunch of quotes from “friends,” “sources,” and “insiders.” Just so you know, pretty much ALL those quotes in that story are from Kara. They get her to give a couple quotes on record so they can pay her more, then they just mask the other quotes with “friends,” “sources say,” and “insiders.” That’s how tabloids work. So the fact she got paid to give an “exclusive” to Star about her relationship with Roberto pretty much means that there’s no chance she’s with Roberto. Just a girl who hooked up with him that sold out to a tabloid. Nothing more, nothing less. He is not dating this girl and certainly isn’t choosing not to be the “Bachelor” for someone who just sold him out to a tabloid.
As for the Emily story about how she wants a “Bachelorette” spin off reality show with her fiancé, who comes up with this stuff? I will be willing to be you anything a show like that never happens. Are you kidding me? But anyone can write that it will happen because it’s such an easy story to write. Nothing from Emily on record, a bunch of speculation and no factual basis for any of the story, it’s pretty much just something to run the week of the finale airing. That’s all. They needed a story to run this week for Emily and since they’ve pretty much used up every other angle, they just make up some nonsense about her and her new fiancé wanting to make their own “Newlyweds” show, a la Nick and Jessica. Not gonna happen.
