Dr. Reality Steve, Lawsuit Coverage, and is Sean Set for DWTS?

February 13th, 2013 | 28 Comments | Posted in Dr. Reality Steve, The Bachelor 17 - Sean

For the longest time, the rumor that was going around which I’d first heard about back in December of 2011, was that the reason Emily had agreed to become the “Bachelorette” after months of saying she wanted no part of it, was that because she was promised a spot on a future season of “Dancing with the Stars.” Well, it looks like she has some competition now. According to a report in “US Weekly” that hit stands today, “a deal hasn’t been finalized, but it’s likely” that Sean will be announced as an official cast member on February 26th, when “Good Morning America” makes the announcement. Well, they certainly aren’t casting both of them, and Sean is the “hotter” name right now because his season ends a week before the DWTS premiere, so I definitely think there’s validity to this story. Hell, they cast Jake Pavelka on this show, and we know Sean is about 100 times more likeable than that guy, so it’s not far fetched at all that they’d be after Sean. I know Sean may have said in a recent interview, “I’m not sure if any TV is in my future. I’m not seeking fame or anything like that,” but he also ended that sentence with, “but if the opportunity is too good to pass up, I would take a look at it.” Money talks people, and when you get a six figure deal just by signing your name on the dotted line for DWTS, THAT’S an opportunity you don’t pass up. I haven’t been told for sure he’s on it, but with this report coming 2 weeks before the official cast announcement is made, someone knows something, so, I absolutely can see why DWTS executives would want him, and I would not be the least bit surprised to see Sean on the show.

Yesterday afternoon, HollywoodReporter.com summed up our motion filings yesterday in this article. Maybe it sheds a little light on the subject for those that were interested, and gives you a little more detail to what my Agreement that I signed was about. It’s pretty cut and dry if you ask me. If they believe a breach happened, they are to notify me in writing (which they did before on the Erica Rose incident), and I have 10 days to respond to them before they can file any injunction. They never notified me of anything this time around, they just went and filed a lawsuit that has ZERO specifics in it. Which is why I’ve said from the very beginning, I’m confused as to what they’re basing this lawsuit on. They have nothing. They filed on Dec. 21st, and here we are almost two months later, and they still have yet to show us or the court any shred of documented evidence that I breached our Agreement, which is what the Agreement specifically states. Yet, on the Erica Rose incident, they followed protocol, notified me by email of what they thought was a potential breach, and rather than fight it, I paid my fine, took down the “Bachelor Pad” spoilers, and proceeded business as usual moving on to spoiling Sean’s season. The whole point of me signing that Agreement was to prevent this very thing from happening. I agreed that if I break the rules, then by all means absolutely they can come after me as long as they show proof that I breached. They couldn’t just assume I breached because my spoilers were so accurate, yet, that’s exactly what they did. Go read the lawsuit. They state zero specifics of how they think I breached, just that they assume I did. This is all very bizarre and corporate bullying at its finest if you ask me.

You know else I find pretty ironic in all this? Look at what Chris Harrison and Executive Producer Robert Mills both tweeted yesterday:

And actually if you go back the last month both of them, and Mike Fleiss, have tweeted every Tuesday afternoon when the overnight ratings came in, how excited they’ve been for the viewership and thanking the viewers. Which is great and all, but on the flip side, they’re suing me essentially saying I’m causing damages to their show. So which is it? Are you thrilled with the ratings that you keep tweeting about, or, am I ruining the show? Can’t have it both ways if you ask me. Either I’m affecting your show like you claim in the lawsuit or I’m not. Look, we all know what I do only brings more attention to their show, and that’s why I find these tweets every Tuesday about the ratings so comical.

Courtesy of DailyMotion.com, the deleted scenes from Monday’s episode in St. Croix are up. The first one is brief synopsis of Sean’s group date with Catherine, Lindsay, and Desiree. The second clip is footage of Sean talking to Chris in the deliberation room about how he didn’t need a cocktail party that night. And the final clip is of some bogus tradition that I’m sure was made up just for Sean and Tierra’s date. Enjoy:

  1. Was anyone else surprised at how good and to the point Steve’s advice was in this post? No? Just me?

  2. Sean, that’s a great idea. You will be starting a relationship in the real world with someone you barely know. Sounds like a smart decision to go on another tv show where you will spend most of your day learning to dance. Yeah, sounds great.

  3. Jessicus…no, I totally agree. I usually just skim through the Dr. Reality Steve stuff, but today I actually read most of the emails and agreed with Steve’s responses. He usually has a tendency to mock people, but today he seemed genuine.

    P.S. I miss 7th Heaven!

  4. The whole “Sean Tells All” episode makes a little more sense now. Depending on when that show airs, I bet they’ll be using that to try to gain more DWTS viewers. Wouldn’t put it past them.

    I know there’s a hefty paycheck involved, but regardless, If Sean’s doing DWTS, then he needs to stop saying he doesn’t like the spotlight and isn’t looking for fame. Please. Catherine better hope he doesn’t get paired up with Cheryl or Karina- aren’t those the two that usually end up hooking up with their partners more often than not? I don’t watch it regularly enough now to know, but that’s how it was the first few seasons, anyway.

  5. I re-watched the Tierra melt down last night…. When she was on her cot with her head in her lap (right before Sean walked in) she was “crying” her eyes out!! Then he walks in puts her hand on her back and says “hey” her head snaps up she looks right at the camera and you could tell it was fake!! I’m soooooo glad Tierra, her eyebrowm and Sparkle are gone!!! In the past section people where saying they thought Courtney was worse, maybe in some ways so but at least Courtney was hilarious with her one liners.. “See ya wouldn’t want to be ya” and “winning”.
    HILARIOUS!

  6. To the woman online dating, if you read the comments, I just want to say…don’t give up. I had many miserable online dates before meeting my fiance, and he is a truly wonderful person. The guy you were writing sounds like an absolute douche. Good for you for your hilarious response to him!

    Also, I agree w/the above comments…I too thought Steve gave great advice today, and for once did it without making fun of everyone!

  7. @ packgirl – and the online dater… I also went on SEVERAL online dates, met some crazy guys, jerks, nice guys that I am still friends on FB with…. And lastly one AMAZING guy that I have been with for over a year and a half now. It does take a lot of effort but I promise you it can be worth it. Match has that new kind of dating know called the mix or the stir…. Maybe you should try that… That way it’s not just you and this one guy…Who knows you may also meet some nice single girls to hang out with! :)

  8. If Sean really decides to do DWTS, Well, lost all respect for him, why not just enjoy real life with Catherine

  9. For some reason I’m thinking Courtney got way more air time on Ben’s season because she was the final one. I just despised her – she was a lot meaner than Tierra in my opinion. Her parents should have named Tierra TIARA cause she thinks she should wear one. I think Erica Rose, Courtney and Tierra are my top 3 worst ever girls on the show – not necesarily in that order.

  10. To the 22-year-old who prefers older men but doesn’t want to wait until she is “older” herself before she dates them: I can relate to your preference for an older man. Prior to marrying my husband (31 years ago), who is 15 1/2 years older than I am), I fell in love with three different men, two of whom were 20 years older than I am. I met my husband when he was in graduate school and I was in college. Although he was 36, he looked a lot younger (great genetics) and since he had just moved to this country (and started college) about 10 years before we met, generationally we seemed very similar (enjoyed the same sort of progressive rock, liked the same TV shows, etc.). And we are very happily married, although it is hard to ever win an argument with someone who is 15 years older than you are, because they always feel they know more (and often do)! I think the secret to a relationship with such a large age difference is to find someone who has a common hobby (such as ballroom dance classes, etc.) or who was, for whatever reason, delayed from college or graduate school until later in life. Being exposed to the “younger generation” and being their “peer” (fellow student) for a few years will make their viewpoint younger and they will adopt some of the younger generation’s taste and style.

  11. It’s hard for me to pick between Tierra and Courtney. While I definitely think that Tierra acted immature, spoiled, and whiny, Courtney’s edit came across as malicious. In a contest to decide who could be more manipulative, Courtney wins hands-down. Tierra is more emotional while Courtney was calculating. The only time Courtney broke down and cried (if my memory serves me correctly) is during the Women Tell All. In the end, I still think that Courtney was worse in terms of “villain” status. Tierra was so pathetic that is was humorous, while Courtney’s antics were just uncomfortable to watch at times.

  12. If Sean really digs Catherine (which hasn’t been shown much on the show), then I think going on DWTS would actually be better for their relationship. When Jake was on the show, Vienna was there with him. So, I think it’s safe to assume that Catherine would be offered the chance to spend time in LA with Sean. Not sure how it would affect her job. But at least their air faire and lodging would be covered by ABC and they’d have quality time together between shooting DWTS. They would both be away from their homes too. So that puts them in a nuetral place where they can focus on each other. At least that’s my opinion.

    I never felt that Jake was really serious about Vienna and I’m not sure Sean is any more serious about Catherine. But I agree with RS that Sean is a much nicer and more genuine person. So if he picked Catherine, I have to believe that he was really into her, because so far, Lindsay is getting the best edit. Catherine is a beautifully stunning girl. Way more appealing to the camera than Vienna. I wouldn’t mind at all seeing them together on TV in DWTS.

  13. I don´t know what to make of this rumors….
    Lately, Sean has been rubbing me the wrong way for some reason and this doesn´t really help his cause, TBH.

  14. Jillbeau, I agree with your thoughts on Courtney vs Tierra. As evil as Courtney seemed on the show, however, I think Ben’s season would have been a complete bore without her.

    Has anyone else had the theme song to 7th Heaven stuck in their head since this AM, thanks to that first email? It’s driving me mad. (I did love that show back in its early seasons though)

  15. Sean reminds me of Jake. When Jake was on Ali’s season. I just loved him. What an amazing and sweet guy. Then he had his own season. In the beginning of his season, I liked him, but then it started changing for me. And well needless to say, it all went downhill from there and now I can’t stand him. I forsee Sean going down this road unfortunately. I hope for him that he doesn’t, but it’s happening. I also don’t blame him for doing DWTS. If they are being paid that much money, I’d do it too. Not for the spotlight, but just for the money. Ha. You could pay me to dance with Val or Maks lol. Ever season has one, this season was Tierra. The producers need to change things up a bit. This show is stagnant. It’s only good and only has a good viewership because of Steve. If they shut Steve’s site down, their ratings will suck as much as Mike Fleiss sucks Elan. Just saying.

  16. I don’t see how anyone can draw parallels between Sean Lowe and Jake Pavelka? Jake obviously never found a camera he didn’t like. What a media whore Jake was (still is) from the start.

    I don’t get that impression from Sean. Sean listened to his sister’s advise and gave Tierra the heave-ho.

    Jake’s family liked Tenley and warned him about Vienna and he completely ignored them because he had his own self-promotion agenda and saw Vienna as a tool he could use to promote himself further (which he did).

  17. To the girl with the best friend of 11 years who wants to spend Valentine’s weekend with you and his fiancée: totally agree with Steve on this one. Threesome. It’s all I was thinking when I read that.

  18. some of you mention the changes you see in sean. it must be hard not to get a swollen head when 25 women are clamoring for your attention and you have full control over who stays and who goes. It would take a very very grounded person not to let that blow their ego up.

  19. Sorry to burst any of your bubbles, but Sean is NOT going to marry Catherine. Get over it. Not gonna happen.

    Did it ever occur to you that the reason Catherine was so upset when Lesley was let go was because that’s when Catherine realized that Sean wasn’t really looking for a wife, but a F1 that he could go through the motions with until they split up?

    If Sean does DWTS, it’ll be the final nail in the wedding coffin. I don’t care who is on DWTS, as long as they don’t let the ultimate fame-whore Emily M make another cent on TV. She’s the phoniest fake of all Bach/Bach-ettes of all seasons, even putting Pavelka to shame.

  20. I agree with everyones thoughts about Courtney versus Tierra. Tierra was a little girl who was immature and mean, but in an emotional way. Courtney was very unemotional, manipulating the caveman in a much more strategic manner. She played him like a woman, Tierra did it as an immature girl. I still say Courtney was much worse. I strongly disliked her and found Tierra just to be a major whackjob and annoyance.

  21. If you Google the Pure Dancing With the Stars website, you will read a shout out about Steve being the spoiler king of Bachelor/ette franchise and how he has mentioned Sean as a DWTS hopeful. Also that Sean has a better chance getting the gig than Emily.

    It would be fun to see Emily eliminated the first night!

  22. One of the actors on “Burning Love” looks to be Charlie O’Connell, a previous Bachelor?

  23. jessicus and jillbeau- i agree, steve gave some really great advice this time! i actually read all of the emails, and i usually just skip through most of them..
    ps.. i miss 7th heaven, too!
