Sometimes, I really enjoy what I do. I take that back, MOST of the time I enjoy what I do. There are few instances here and there where emailers and tweeters get on my nerves, but for the most part, I ignore them. However last night, I was bored and decided to have a little fun. A twitter exchange turned into an email exchange that I’m sure you’ll get a kick out of reading. I’ll get to that in a little bit. First, some things to go over.
Congrats go out to Jason and Molly for the announcement yesterday they are expecting their first child in March. For a couple that was the most hated couple on the planet when everything went down, good to see they made it through and are going strong. Good luck to them in the future.
I know I have a lot of Canadian readers, and when the “Bachelor: Canada” was first announced, plenty of you emailed and tweeted asking if I was gonna have spoilers and if I was gonna cover it. I said it then that the show is not on here in the states and I have no interest in covering it. I said it in emails, I said it in tweets, and I put it in columns. Well now that the show has officially started in Canada, I guess I need to repeat myself again. It’s not on here in the states, I’m not watching the show, I don’t have any interest in watching the show, I don’t even know the bachelors name, and I have zero information on it. So there. Hopefully that’ll put a slight stop on all the emails and tweets.
Speaking of Canada and this franchise, I forgot to include this link in Tuesday’s column. Former “Bachelorette” Jillian Harris did an interview with CBC and talked briefly about her time on the show, then got into her relationship now that she’s in. It’s not really anything terribly new that we’ve heard coming from this franchise (it’s stuff I’ve told you for years), but I think when it comes from me, a lot of you tend to have selective hearing, or it just goes in one ear and out the other. To hear it coming from someone who was not only a contestant on the show, but then became a lead, it’s refreshing to listen to. Click on this link, and then fast forward to the 54:45 mark to hear when Jillian starts talking about her experience, and how manipulated you can be, and what producers are feeding ALL the contestants during filming. If you didn’t ever believe me all the times I’ve told you, maybe you’ll believe Jillian who was actually there. Twice.
As for Ben and Courtney’s break up, there really isn’t much to talk about. If you haven’t seen, each of them have spoken to different outlets. Ben gave his first words about the breakup to In Touch Magazine, and Courtney spoke with WetPaint.com. Reading those two sides, is there really any more to say? Each of them looks to be taking the high road and it looks like they just went their separate ways. I haven’t heard anything differently, and I seriously doubt any more dirt will be coming out of this, so, I guess people who were rooting for them will just have to live with those answers for now. God forbid Jef and Emily eventually give answers like that, there might be rioting in the streets. The crazies will demand something more juicy and detailed than “we just grew apart.” I almost feel sorry for those two because when they eventually do make their breakup announcement, nothing they say will be good enough for some people. Just get it over and done with so I don’t have to listen to all the idiocy flying around right now.
