Your “Bachelor Pad” Recap Including Why the Spoilers Are Gone & Who You Can Blame For It

August 7th, 2012 | 91 Comments | Posted in Bachelor Pad 3, Bachelor Pad 3 Spoilers

I’m sure there are plenty of you out there saying, “Steve, how could possibly trust someone like Erica Rose?” Here’s my answer: She gave me no reason not to. Like I said, it’s not like Erica and I started talking a couple weeks ago. We’d been friends for over a year now. And we talked about plenty of stuff non-show related. She never gave me any reason to doubt her sincerity towards me, she was always nice and accommodating to me, and me and her never had any issues before. She’s one of the few in this group that I actually considered a close friend, and never in a million years did I think she would be someone to turn on me by handing over my text messages to producers. Let me share a recent story with you:

Remember when I was in LA on March 31st for Michelle Money’s charity event? At that event, numerous “Bachelor” guys and girls were being auctioned off for “dates,” with the money going to the Chris4Life Colon Cancer Foundation charity. In the weeks leading up to the event, Erica and I were talking and I even told her that I’d bid on her for the date, just to drive the price up. I told Natalie the same thing. I’d never thought I’d actually “win” either of them, but I’d do it nonetheless because it was for charity. Within 10 minutes of me arriving at the event, Erica had come up to me and was making sure I was going to bid on her because she was nervous no one would. And of course I kept my word. Six girls from Ben’s season were there, Natalie was there, Roberto was there, and a couple other reality people from others shows were all being auctioned off for “dates.” Well, Erica gets up there, and no one is bidding. I ended up “winning” Erica with a bid of $300.

Every other person at that event that was bid on went for over $1000. Some even went for between $3k-5k. Erica was mortified. She kept telling me after the fact how embarrassed she was, she was so much prettier and more popular than some of the other girls that were bid on, and she couldn’t believe she went for the lowest amount of anyone there. When we met for our “date” the next morning (April 1st) over breakfast (which wasn’t even a date at all because we were friends and we’d already talked about it beforehand), she BEGGED me not to write in my blog how she only went for $300 because she felt so embarrassed. And I obliged. Then two days later (April 3rd), she sent me a text reminding me, yet again, not to say how much she went for because, well, she felt she was better than the other girls. So if she’s all about sharing text messages, might as well do it myself and join in the fun. Read for yourself:

Nice, huh? There’s plenty more where those came from. And the only reason I mentioned the “legal stuff” in the text was because I’m very well aware how paranoid some of these contestants get by associating with me. Producers eye them like hawks. They basically don’t want any of them talking to me, so, although I did attend the event, people didn’t need to know exactly everything that went on and who I spoke with, etc. I’ve said many times I’m friends/acquaintances with quite a few of these contestants, but very rarely have I ever gone into detail about it, nor will I. It’s just not for public consumption of who I know, what we talk about, and so on and so forth. In that aspect, I like to think I’m protecting quite a few of them because they know they’ll get sh** if producers hear that they talk to me. That’s just the way they’ve become. I did end up mentioning in a video blog that I won a date with Erica, but never said anything about the price, because she asked me not to, and I respected our friendship enough to not let that out. Well, cat’s out of the bag now. After what she did to me, I don’t give a sh** about sharing that story now. That’s the thanks I get for helping out a friend? Really? Just goes to show you what kind of person she really is.

Worse than that, our last text conversation was on July 11th. It was nothing “Bachelor Pad” related. Just a conversation back and forth about a date that she was currently on that she was hating, yet, texting me during and giving me updates. That’s the kind of friendship we had. She was giving me a play-by-play of her date while she was on it because she wanted out of it so bad. It was actually kinda funny. However, looking back on it now, she was having that conversation with me AFTER she had already turned over my texts and ratted me out. So she never once gave me a heads up, and never once mentioned to me, “Hey, they’re asking me about you.” Nothing. Just acted like our friendship was going to continue, even after I found out what she did. Of course, once I found out, I immediately wanted to get an explanation from her, but I decided against it. She had turned me in. There was no reason for me to further any potential trouble by contacting her again. July 11th was our last contact and I plan on keeping that way. She’s a disgusting human being for what she did, and I have no use in my life for people like her.

Now you might be asking, “Steve, well why did she turn on you? Something must’ve happened for her to do this to you?” Oh trust me, I have my guesses, I just know that NONE of them have to do with anything I ever said or did to her. I’ve been nothing but a good friend to her for over a year, and this is how she treats her friends in return I guess. I’m guessing Erica was paid to rat me out. I don’t know that to be fact, but I assume the reason she did it was because there was some incentive in it for her. Hell, for all I know, maybe they went to Erica BEFORE “Bachelor Pad” started and said something like, “Look, we know you’re friends with him. If you promise to turn over any communication he has with you after the show, we’ll cast you on Bachelor Pad.” I don’t know. But something isn’t right. As much of a disgusting and despicable human I think she is now, I don’t think she did this just to do it for fun. I’m guessing there was incentive for her to do it. And if there wasn’t, and she really did set me up, then wow. She’s even a worse person than I thought. She’s either a horrible person for betraying a friends trust like that and never telling me about it beforehand, or, she’s a horrible person for possibly accepting some sort of incentive to rat me out. Either way, I’m done with Erica Rose as a person and as a friend. And I’m going to have a field day the rest of the season recapping “Bachelor Pad” talking about her.

This is absolutely not a case of sour grapes because I can’t run my spoilers anymore. Like I said, not a big deal since they’ve been out there almost a month and you can find plenty of other sites that ran with my info from back on July 3rd. And as much as paying the fine wasn’t fun and I’m not happy about it, this isn’t about that either. It’s about believing someone was your friend, believing that someone in this franchise could actually be a nice honest person, but I guess I was wrong. I’m not a guy who is a social butterfly and has tons and tons of friends just to have friends. I have a few very close friends that I trust whole heartedly and have always been skeptical about opening myself up to people. This certainly isn’t going to help that matter. Makes me question every single relationship I have with every single person from this franchise. Won’t affect spoilers in the future that’s for sure, since basically none of my information comes from contestants, but going forward, I’m going to have to re-evaluate who I think is trustworthy within this franchise, and if even carrying on a friendship with them is worth it. Because believe it or not, I know it sounds crazy, but I always thought Erica was someone I could put my complete trust into. Stupid f***ing me.

I’m sure Erica will take to her Twitter account and spew a bunch of lies about me and try and start some sort of Twitter war over this, but I’m having none of it. I just gave you the God’s honest truth about our friendship and what she did to me. Seeing the way she reacted to David in episode one just because he wanted to vote her off, I’m no doubt expecting her to overreact and spill lies about me. Just keep in mind whatever she writes, she’s on the defensive now because she was just exposed for betraying a friendship and she looks silly so she’s gonna retaliate in any way she can. I’ll never forgive someone like her for this, I don’t want an apology from her, I don’t want an explanation anymore as to why she did it, and I don’t care to ever hear from her again. She’s out of my life and I will gladly look on and watch her fail miserably in her “entertainment career” she thinks she has going forward. And that’s being nice after what she did. If she wants to begin a war, I’ve got a years worth of text messages to destroy her and some of the stuff she’s said about other people in this franchise. It won’t be pretty. If I were her, I’d just fess up to being a rat who most likely sold out for some sort of incentive and go on her merry way. Good riddance.

  1. She sold Kalon out to Star magazine so I’m not surprised she did this. Once a sell out, always a sell out. She’ll do anything for fame and money. How sad……

  2. Steve,

    I feel badly for you that you had to learn such a painful lesson. In the long run this experience will serve you well.

    When you look at people you choose to trust, you have to look at them as a whole. Are they honest in every aspect of their lives? If you think they’ll be different for you — you will end up wrong.

    This is a girl who has chosen to make reality shows a regular experience for herself. She’s a sellout. She is clearly insecure and lacks integrity. She showed you who she was before you decided to suck up to her. She’s not about anyone but herself.

    You’ve said your peace. Shut up about it now. Live and learn and move on. Sorry you got burned.

  3. ok said I would have one post in all my years here and I did it. hours ago ..however bigfatwoman has said it all!!! So I need to give her a shout out !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. I feel.. Mixed. I agree, RS should live and learn from his tragic misconception that ANYONE from the Bachelor franchise is his true friend. However, HE often had her back. I found this excerpt from his Jan 22 post about the Bachelor/ette Reunion:

    “Reading some of the Twitter accounts and looking at pictures, some girls looked great, and others, not so much. However one consensus that I did get is that a lot of people were impressed with how Erica Rose looked. Good for her. And her gavel.”

    It all makes sense.

  5. @ strick432: Erica was on Dr. Phil for being spoiled rotten – I think it was called “Spoiled Rich Princesses” or something like that. She was on with her mother, and also another girl who was also spoiled rotten by her mother. They both refused to do chores, curb their spending, and were basically doing nothing with their lives. Dr. Phil forced them to do a day of honest work (which they failed at, if I remember correctly). Then she was on “You’re Cut Off,” the link above you posted by Guerlain where her mother turned her into this rich girls’ boot camp because of her spending and the usual. It doesn’t seem like she’s changed a bit and obviously wants to be on TV as much as possible.

    Steve, I’ll be your friend. MY tiara’s better than Erica’s. ;-)

  6. he basically openly admitted fishing for information from the contestants and buying it.

  7. Sorry this happened Steve but she isn’t smart enough to be that manipulative. I’ve never read this blog, I don’t really watch reality shows, but I grew up with her in Houston. She scrapes by in life because she’s so stupid that nobody sees her as a threat. Her manipulation tactics are 4th grade level, it’s just that nobody cares enough about her to expose her. The men in Houston just sleep with her and laugh about it later.
    Half her Houston “society” friends met her on FACEBOOK. SHE IS ONLY RELEVANT AS A PUNCHLINE. The people I know who went to law school with her said she barely graduated and failed the Texas bar, if it makes you feel better they also said they would give her bad information when they studied with her because they knew she was talking shit behind their backs.
    Media blackout. Make her irrelevant. Well, more so than she already is. If you won’t do that, at least make her unhireable because other reality “stars” won’t work with her. I look forward to reading her most incriminating texts, and you just made a fan of your blog!

  8. Steve, I feel for you, I honestly do. But at the same time, I believe Erica was “planted” by the Bach producers to become a “friend” of yours. The deal they put out was most likely money, and another appearance on BP. Once she got what she was promised, she blew the whistle on you. That’s my take on the situation. Sad that people like her are THAT incredibly insecure and spoiled that they have to live their lives this way. Consider it a lesson well learned. But, be cautious; there are many, many “Erica Rose” type people out there. Just tread lightly.

  9. Sorry Steve this happened to you. I live in Houston and know all about Erica Rose. Im sorry you fell for her spoiled childish behavior. Erica is all about Erica, she wants everyone to love her and worship her and yet she doesnt like anyone. She thinks everyone is beneath her. She only wants to be around you if it benefits her. Her mother is just like her, thats why she is this way. Kalon I have to say is a nice guy, he is all an act on TV. Please Steve keep your info coming. I look forward to it.

  10. I stopped coming here a couple of years back and don’t watch these shows but saw on CNN about this issue…crazy, I know. But one of the last things I wrote was about how Kasey and Vienna were psycho crazy. RS, you told me that I shouldn’t judge these people and they aren’t as they seem. My response…you’re getting too close. Seems it ended up being true. These people are leaches that are trying to make a quick buck for themselves. They all have ego and self esteem issues. Just do your job and keep your distance.

  11. Did anyone noticed the editing error during the wax museum date? I knew immediately that the “wax figure” of Chris Harrison was really him because in the first shot, his fingertips were pressed together at waist-level. In the next shot, his hands are down, and in the next shot, his hands are back at waist-level. Gave it away immediately.

  12. @kmar – yup, saw that too.

    RS, why’d you delete my comment that included the links to the Bachelor/ette and your own facebook pages?

  13. FB pages have settings. I am sure Steve is not deleting anybody’s posts on his RS FB page. Depending on the settings; ages restrictions, posts, pictures, tags can all be controlled in his admin control panel. :D

  14. The funniest (or perhaps the most pathetic) part of the whole series is how the former bachelor(ette) contestants keep talking about how they deserve to be there, but not the fans.. as though they’ve done something spectacular to deserve this opportunity. Would there even be a show if there weren’t fans to watch it? I am always surprised by what train-wrecks these people are – you know you should watch, but you do :)

  15. Live and learn Steve. You gut stung, so be it. But if this happens again, just means that you are either a slow learner, are dumb, or both.

    Love the spoilers. Just pay attention to details of contracts you sign. I do not want to see the spoilers end.

  16. I find it totally hilarious that Erica is so delusional that she thinks she’s “prettier.” Compared to who? Erica is NOT pretty. She’s funny looking, though her plastic surgery helped but then again, most of these girls that she is putting down didn’t have to have plastic surgery to get a better FACE. It’s just a darned shame that RS wasted his $300 or she would have seen the truth – nobody wanted to waste money on her. Oh well, at least it was for charity. She may think she’s “pretty” but she has an UGLY personality.

  17. @cangel – since everyone else has been able to post links with no problem (see above comments) and because after I posted the links there was a line stating “Your comment is awaiting moderation. ” printed above the links and then the post disappeared, I respectfully disagree that was the issue.

    @ sandy – couldn’t agree more.

  18. punka: Steve may not be either dumb or a slow learner. He may just be somewhat naive about some relationships. Some really smart people have those same traits. By his own admission, he doesn’t trust easily, which probably helps him not be taken advantage of, but also could cause him to be somewhat lonely and thus vulnerable to someone who seems, at first glance, trustworthy.

    In terms of the contestants on this show – I can only imagine that it is the really rare individual that doesn’t score high on the narcissism scale, and therefore low on empathy. Such a person doesn’t really tune into the feelings of others – just their own. I have seen no evidence that Erica is that rare exception.

    Having said all that – let’s try not to demonize anyone – none of us are as good or as bad as it may appear.

  19. Well, Steve, you’ve learned a tough lesson: fame whores are fame whores and they’ll do anything to further their narcissistic goals – and if that means betraying their friends or family or whoever, they’ll do it.
    Frankly, I don’t think you should have either removed your spoilers OR paid a fine, although I understand the economics of doing so. Fact is, a Bach Franchise contestant took it upon herself to develop a “friendship” with you, so if anyone is breaking the rules/violating a contract, it’s her.
    But don’t sweat it. It’s not like anyone who has seen Erica’s “performances” honestly feels that she has an iota of personal integrity, so … carry on (with caution)!
    And fer gawd’s sake DON’T communicate with Fan-Donna, even if she contacts you! That girl is barking mad! Seriously, what was with her comments in the limo about not understanding why not a single guy in the BP house was throwing himself at her, because that’s what happens to her EVERYWHERE, ALL THE TIME?
    Holy delusions, Batman!!
    Thanks for letting us know what’s going on Steve. And keep doing what you’re doing.
    P.S. to Quacker: Are your initials either E.R. or M.F., perhaps? Hahahahahahahaha!

  20. @Randals…sorry thought you meant comments with links were being deleted off his RS FB page. I must of read it wrong. Looks like your on the RS “naughty” list :D

  21. There are some contestants on the show that immediately give off a good vibe to me. Some of these contestants would be Melissa R, Kacie B and Tenley Molzahn. Then there are contestants that rub you the wrong way. One of them for me is Erica. It seems like Erica is a little bit off and I am not able to place why. I am not sure why Steve even befriended her on a more personal level and placed his trust in her. Maybe they were two peas in a pod and used a lot of humor in their friendship and they got along for that reason. The lesson learned is that true friends are hard to find. Hopefully Steve will be more careful on who he befriends in the future. I am sure Erica can be a nice person, just misunderstood. Anyways I found this video about Erica.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dtjvnx3e__4

  22. $300 for Erica Rose? Steve, you overpaid by at least $270. $30 tops – and that’s the tab for both you and her. Seriously, I wish Erica Rose would find herself a man somewhere so we wouldn’t have to watch her season after season on Bachelor Pad, but with her pathetic whiny self-serving attitude that most likely will never happen. Decent men won’t have anything to do with women like Erica (on a permanent basis), and decent women don’t behave like she does. She is nothing more than a mercenary wh*re, selling whatever she has to the highest bidder. And I bet she’s paid in both cash and “benefits.” Ugh. Steve, really, you can do better.

  23. people could sell steve shit and he’d buy it as long as it comes from one of the bachelors.
    no more spoilers..
    duck is quacking in its shack, quack quack

  24. Steve – I hate this happened but when you get too close to the fire, you get burned. I have been confused in the past when you suddenly became friends (Wes for example) (Deanna modeling jeans on your website, for example) after you spoofed them for months. I think a healthy distance from all of them is wise. You talk about their character and their egos – why you think any of them would change their stripes is naive. Lesson learned I hope.

  25. I can’t stand Erica Rose, she’s whiny and irritating. When she talks it’s like chalk screetching across a board. I want to gouge my eyes out with pencils. The only reason I can think of that we have to watch her every season on BP is because the Fleecemaster MF owes her something. STEVE, when will you learn, MF has a bounty of sorts on your head. He will do whatever he has to do to stop you and bring you to your knees. I am sure has has offered the Bach/Ette alumni something if they can get the goods on you. It my not be money, but in ER’s case, televison time. For goodness sake Steve, please do not trust these people, they are all famewhores who will sell their mother’s down the river. Stay away from them, and never never reveal your sources to any of them. Take it to your grave. I won’t watch as long as he has people like Erica Rose on. I look forward to RS spoilers so I don’t have to watch. Watch your back Steve.

  26. Hang her to dry. End of story.

    She’s delusional. There is no way at all that girl is pretty. She’s been given too much incorrect information all her life…likely ‘daddy’ told her what a little princess she was all her life, she ate it up, and look where it gets her?

    I really hope that if she decides to practice law, that NO ONE hires her because of the publicity she’s had. That would be the ultimate haha on her!

  27. AMEN to everything @Athena said.

    As badly as I feel for anyone who naively gets burned by another person — I’m going to conclude with no real basis whatsoever that Steve is rather emotionally stunted.

    Between the over the top and sometimes offensive sophomoric re-caps….to the fixation of Mike Fleiss. This seems like a case of (and I’ve said it before) unfinished business with the high school bully that Mike Fleiss represents and a way to be “in” with the cool kids via Erica Rose and any other Bach contestants Steve can befriend.

    I think in general Steve needs to do some growing and man-ing up.

    (Less we forget the Donate button and not telling the full story behind it — add that to the list).

  28. Steve, you said, “I don’t think she did this just to do it for fun. I’m guessing there was incentive for her to do it.”

    Silly, the incentive is that you are not Mike Fleiss. That you can’t help Erica maintain her non-career as a professional media whore. Who else will put her on primetime television? Who else will put her in situations where a hot guy might kiss her? Who else will give her a glamorous life in the public eye with parties and cameras and gifting suites? No you, buddy.

    Being on television is THAT important, Steve. At least it is to shallow spoiled lazy people like Erica Rose.

    Plus, where else is she going to find hot guys to kiss her (if he’s not busy avoiding her or making rude and sexist wise cracks about her body)?

  29. This is the LLM program she bragged about going to

    http://thirdtierreality.blogspot.com/2010/05/sweltering-smoldering-steaming-stack-of.html

    Her and her “Best Friend” Brittany Reichek (Klinger) like selling stories to people, BRK was just the “source” for some tabloid story where she sold out her old friends who I am SURE have their own stories about her. But she isn’t famous, so who would pay for stories about a nobody? These are two IRRELEVANT peas in a pod.

  30. Erica Rose should take the advice of Jimmy Conway (Goodfellas)…..”never rat on your friends and always keep your mouth shut”.

  31. LOL I loved this article! Sorry about what Erica did to you- she’s a butt hole anyway! HAHA your summary of that episode was so hilarious!!

  32. :Erika was on bachelor, bachelor pad 2 and 3 and that shows that she is a fame wh*re!!
    People like her will stab you in the back 1 day and the next day they act like they are your best friend.

  33. I came on here looking to see who wins and who gets eliminated each week! It is much more fun to read your take on it (and entertaining and funny) than it is to watch that whole boring show! Boo!! Yucky slutty Erica Rose ruined it for me!
