The Bachelorette Desiree Recap Including Brooks in a Commercial & What’s Stephanie and Brian’s Status Now?

June 11th, 2013 | 50 Comments | Posted in The Bachelorette 9 - Desiree

-The next day is Kasey’s 1-on-1 date and Desiree is so excited, she’s actually using the creepy used journal that Zak gave her last week for something other than a coaster. I guess she’s writing down her thoughts. Or drawing Brooks’ long, flowy, greasy hair. Whatever the case, the phone rings. Never a good sign. If you’re the lead, and they’re filming you in your room, and the phone rings, assume it’s never anything good. Ask Ali. Chris informs her she needs to get to the mansion because it’s about to go down. Tells her to go to the mansion and talk to Brian outside first before she leaves with Kasey. She brings Brian outside to give him one last chance to try and save his ass, and he basically just kept digging himself a grave. At that point, Desiree has him turn around to his girlfriend Stephanie and Chris Harrison walking in. This is where it gets all sorts of ridiculous.

-You all saw what happened last night. Some of you think Brian is a jerk. Some of you don’t believe a word Stephanie said. Some of you think they’re both acting. Some of you think they were both paid to be on the show. I’ve heard it all. Here’s what I can tell you of what went down back around the time this happened, and how I knew it happened back when I reported it.

I received an email back on March 19th, which was 2 days before Stephanie appeared on the show. The 19th was the day last week’s rose ceremony took place. I was informed on that day there was a guy named Brian Jarosinski on the show, and that he had a girlfriend named Stephanie Larimore. When I googled both of them, Stephanie’s name and face looked familiar, and that’s when I made the connection she was Craig Robinson’s ex-girlfriend. I had heard MANY stories about her in the past, but it had been a couple years since they dated, so it didn’t register right away. Plenty of people in the Bachelor family know firsthand about Stephanie and her antics, as they’ve been witnesses to her actions at past events. Will they share? Probably not. But she is well known in those circles and the stories surrounding her? Lets just say they aren’t the most positive ones. Anyway, I was told that she got in contact with a producer, told the producer her story, and she was on a red eye, Wednesday March 20th to LA (the day of the dodgeball date). So she gets in Thursday morning the 21st, they bring her to the mansion that day, and then you saw what happened that night. She was on a plane that night headed back to Baltimore. I broke the story a week later on March 28th, because I needed to make sure I had all my ducks in a row.

So based on that information, if Stephanie was an actress, or this was pre-planned from the beginning, she would have no reason to get in contact with a producer to tell them her story, because essentially they’d already know. Why create this whole fake phone call in the first place? Just have her already booked for a flight like, “Ok, we’re gonna use you this day, your flight is booked for this day, we’ll have you home at this time.” Didn’t happen that way. She first got in touch with a producer on the 19th, she was on a red eye the next night the 20th, arrived the morning of the 21st, had her blowup with Brian that day, and was on a flight home immediately after that and was back in Maryland on the night of the 21st. So yes, producers were made aware of a possible huge “girlfriend” storyline, their ears perked up, and obviously they did everything they could to make it happen because they knew it’d be good drama and what the show needs. So they did it, and what you saw last night was the end result.

However, here’s what I can tell you since that all happened on March 21st:

-About two weeks ago, I got an email from someone stating that they had seen Brian and Stephanie together in Upper Maryland and they were all over each other. I immediately emailed this person to get some clarification and more details, but never heard back. So I didn’t completely dismiss it, but unless they were gonna follow up with something, there wasn’t anything to report.

-Last night during the show, I got another email from someone saying that Sunday night, Brian and Stephanie were at Bay Café in Baltimore together. The email stated, among other things, “They were all over each other walking hand in hand like they had been together forever. Even spotted them at one point sitting in the beach area of the bar cuddling and whispering in each others ears. They walked around like almost waiting for someone to recognize them.” Interesting.

-Then not 5 minutes after I received that email, yet ANOTHER email came in to me stating that Brian and Stephanie were definitely together at Baltimore Ravens Lardarius Webb Foundation Sponsor’s Cocktail Party the night of May 31st. I was sent this picture with it:

BrianSteph

They wrote: “She’s right next to him looking down, but you can’t really see it’s her because there’s someone right in front of her. If you look at the right side of the pic, there’s a girl in a white dress and then two people next to her. He’s the 4th guy over behind them slightly. Stephanie is next to him but really hidden.”

-I’ve been made aware this morning that Stephanie has been in contact with the tabloids, is looking to get paid for her story, and her pitch is that she’s back together with Brian. Well there you go. That makes her look even worse than that sad sack performance last night on the show.

Now I don’t know if this means that everything back on March 21st says it was all acting and they were in on it together back then as well. Personally, I don’t think they were. But knowing the stories I’ve heard about this chick, and hearing them both say last night they’ve always had a volatile relationship (including throwing rocks at each other), yet they still remained together, and now hearing this, I mean, is anyone surprised these two are back together? Me neither. We can debate until we’re blue in the face how legit this whole thing was, but it’s a waste of time. These two attention whores deserve each other and let them continue in their BS relationship.

They got what they wanted out of it, so let them bask in their 15 minutes. Like these two are ever going to last. Brian, she chucked rocks at you and you’re still with her? Basically shows what kind of guy you are. And Stephanie, if you’re as upset as you pretended to be back on March 21st, what could he have possibly said to make you change your mind about him? I’m sure Stephanie’s not insecure AT ALL. What a joke. These two are laughable, and I’m glad I exposed this almost 3 months before it aired. The fact she admitted last night that her son looks up to Brian is pretty embarrassing in and of itself. What does her 13 year old son think of mommy spread eagle and naked all over the internet? I’m sure his friends have a field day with him talking about his MILF. Congrats, Steph. Mom of the Year if you ask me. Bottom line: Stephanie didn’t HAVE to go on the show last night. For what? Because she really wanted to protect Desiree? A girl she didn’t even know or had ever spoken to before? Please. She was looking out for Desiree so much, and warning her about a what a “lying, cheating, deceitful, pig” he was, that within 2 months, she’d already forgiven him, and they are back together. So basically everything she said on the show last night is a slap in the face to Desiree. Stephanie obviously just did it for publicity because she’s a has been former Playmate of the Month who’s a single mom with not a whole hell of a lot going for her right now, and Brian was just looking to promote himself on a popular television show. Nothing more, nothing less. The two of them are both an embarrassment and I hope their unhealthy relationship blows up in their face. Other than that, great job last night. Highly entertaining.

-After that whole debacle, my interest in watching Desiree go on a date with Kasey couldn’t have been any lower. Couldn’t we just have skipped that date and had Stephanie start giving the guys in the mansion lap dances or something? How many of those guys tried to slip Stephanie their phone number when she was there? Or are trying to hit her up on Facebook as we speak. Oh you can bet there are a few. Did they spend more than 4 minutes showing us Desiree and Kasey’s date? I know they went window dancing at the Andaz Hotel on Sunset Blvd and Kasey was wearing Capri pants with both of them having harnesses shoved up their crotches, but other than that, it was about as bland and boring of a date as possible. Of course, it didn’t help matters that Desiree seemed to be PMS’ing that day. Not being able to get over the Brian thing, the weather at the night portion of their date sucked, and Des just seemed to be complaining. All date you could tell that Kasey was essentially in the friend zone. There was nothing chemistry wise with these two. I can’t remember the last time when recapping an episode I basically had nothing to say about a date – until now. I’ve got nothing. Kasey and Des bored me to tears. I guess after the fireworks with the whole Brian/Stephanie stuff, nothing Kasey and Des really did would be all that interesting. And it wasn’t. Sorry guys.

  1. Anyone else notice last night that in Mikey’s ITM during the dodge ball game, that he was clean shaven, but when he was playing dodge ball he was all scruffy? Oh the editing.

  2. OMG could ABC have picked a sorrier bunch of guys? I cringe every time one of them says to Des “I have something I need to tell you”

  3. I was looking forward to watching the “drama” on last night’s episode but just as Stephanie arrived the show was preempted by severe storm coverage in the DC area. So today I watched that part of the show online — what a disappointment! Poor Steph! The guy she tried to break up with (and slept with the same day) is on a dating show! I’m heartbroken for her. They obviously had something very special, what with all the cheating and lying. And then there was Chris saying “Steph Steph Steph Steph” over and over, trying to interrupt her for no good reason. The whole scene was awkward. If that’s the best drama they can come up with, this is definitely the most boring season ever.

  4. RS, I have an idea. If you are still missing some of the action on the show while you’re busy tweeting…. well, there’s this really cool new invention called a DVR. You see, you can actually record the show, play it back whenever you want, and you can pause the show whenever you need to go to the bathroom, get a drink, listen to your wife/gf babble… or even when you’re tweeting. You should try it!

  5. Oh, that Stephanie. Used to be a Playboy Playmate. How long ago was that, 30 years? Geez, she looks like she’s put 250,000 miles on the odometer since then.

  6. And Brooks. Wow. I’ve broken fingers before as has my son. In both cases, we got x-rays at the doctor and were fitted with a splint. There was no pain killer, no ambulance ride, nothing. Yeah, broken fingers hurt, but at no time should any self respecting man be half passed out on a gurney begging for pain killer because of one. My son actually played a basketball game two days later with the splint still on. Man up Brooks! You already embarassed yourself in Dodgeball when there were about 20 sequences shown of you getting nailed with a ball totally unable to make an athletic move to get out of the way. And do something about those dog teeth of yours. They freak me out!

  7. Final thought: I can’t wait to see the ratings. This show is totally in the dumper. Neither me or my wife can get through half the show without falling asleep. This is cutting into the action I usually get at the end of the show!! So, I’m super annoyed that this season is so boring!!

  8. Maybe you forgot about the SF Giants fan who got the ever-loving crap beat out of him by some Dodgers fans after a game? Sounds like Dodgers fans’ hatred for all things Giants goes the same way.

    F*ck them Dodgers, GO GIANTS!

  9. Ha ha – “Michael’s wild ass hair” makes me picture Medusa locks hanging out his shorts. (ass hair) Perhaps that should have been wild-ass hair…..

    But it was funny the way you wrote it, Steve.

  10. Maybe I’m mean, but I couldn’t help laughing at Brandon’s breakdown. That guy should date AshLee.

  11. Wow…what a let down for me after reading all of your spoilers. BROOKS! REALLY???? I have been so IMPRESSED with Des and thought Brooks was the biggest loser from the beginning. AND….after last night’s show, where he broke his iddy biddy lil’ ol finger…REALLY?…what a BIG BABY! If I would not have seen what happened, I would have thought he had had some near death injury…NOT a broken finger! He looked like a drug addict. Evidently Des has suffered a real broken heart and is not thinking clearly. Somebody help this sweet girl!

  12. Rollingeyes: yeah, I was a Dodger fan when I was in LA. There is some serious hate at Dodger Stadium for the Giants. Now, casual fans don’t care about the rivalry (and there are a lot of casual fans), but the guys in the pavillions are frothing at the mouth when the Giants are in town. Now, Giant fans are cro-magnon mouth breathers who like to chuck batteries at players and umps, so you expect them to have true hatred. It’s kind of a Pavlov’s dog reaction. But Dodger fans, true fans, give it right back… but without all the grunting and drooling you see from Frisco fans.

  13. I don’t usually go for the Italian Stallion type, but…..James…..wow……can you say smokin’ hot and ridiculously sexy!? Meow!!!!!!!

  14. This has to be the most boring season ever. I fell asleep during last night’s show (first time ever!) and didn’t wake up until it was over. Thank heavens for RS – his recap is a thousand times more entertaining than Des and her collection of losers.

  15. I fell asleep too and don’t even remember, or care, if I recorded it. Des and her men are beyond boring.

  16. “We had to say goodbye to Dan…but then don’t remember saying hello” or words to that effect!! So funny. The whole recap was totally awesome and spot on. This bunch of wusses don’t deserve to have a girl…so maybe being in love with each other is the real deal!

    I know a 2-1/2 year old little girl who broke her finger, had a splint and never complained…the little honey but Brooke was apparently hooked up to life support!! Pansy! And sadly this was the best Des could do from the whole bunch. I am seriously worried about this girl and her choices.

  17. I’ve broken two separate fingers on two separate occasions, and both times I’ve had it x-rayed and put in a splint in a doctor’s office. I never passed out, never had an ambulance ride, never got fitted with IV-tubes … I couldn’t believe all that nonsense with Brooks last night! In fact the most interesting parts of the slooooooowest two hours on TV were the collage commercials ABC kept running about all their **other** programming. I kept thinking how pathetic – ABC can’t even sell enough commercial air time to support this show anymore. That’s how far down into the toilet it has sunk. Flush away, boys.

  18. Zack K. Is super hot! He needs more TV time! Hopefully he will be on Bachelor Pad IF they have another season. But then again, he may not be dramatic enough.

  19. If Brandon was being serious then he SERIOUSLY needs therapy. I hope the dude has family or friends watching and encourage him to go. That was disturbing on many levels. He looks suicidal. Very scary.

    Anyone think Chris will be the next Bachelor? He seems nice, but kinda dull. But we’ve hardly seen him.

  20. Finally had the chance to catch up with the past couple of episodes, and two things stand out in my mind..

    1. The unnecessary abuse of the phrase “right reasons”
    2. I have always thought “Burning Love” was just an over dramatized parody of the show, but after watching the last couple of episodes and seeing the guys’ over-the-top reaction to the lame dates, “Burning Love” is more of a documentary, rather than a spoof.

  21. I actually feel bad for Brandon. Dude has serious abandonment issues, not of his own doing. He needs some counseling, because he seems like a good dude, just broken. His parents did a number on him with how immature and irresponsible they were.

    I think Des sending him how now rather than later was also for the best. HE attached quickly, and it would have gotten harder for him, the longer it went, and I think she knew it.

    Brandon just needs a good counselor to help him work through his issues. They are not his fault, but not dealing with them now that he is an adult is his fault.

  22. Brooks is so feminine.

    Who cares about the Brian drama? I actually thought the editing really didn’t give him any time to speak and the others were just bullies.

    Is there something wrong with Des’ hair? Looks like her part is strange and a little Donald Trumpish up top.

    Side note: Ali Fedotowsy has announced she has a cameo in Woody Allen’s next film. SO now she’s an actress too?

  23. Steve is spot on with the comment “Michael has a hard on for Ben” and all the bromance being homoerotic stuff. The funniest part is that ABC is totally playing it out like this and I doubt even aware of it! My gaydar went off big time when Michael said something like “well, at least there are 9 great guys on this date”. LOL. It actually makes it a little less boring for me than the whole Ben or Stephanie drama and I hope ABC keeps editing it like that. It reminds me again of Ben’s season where the competition between the girls was really the only thing holding the show up because the lead is soooo uninteresting. I honestly would have really preferred AshLee’s cray cray to this lack of any personality from Des. AshLee at least provided some deeper insights into the human character (like interpreting Sean’s motivations). And I will fully admit that I prefer watching AshLee’s boobs defy gravity than Des’ painful insecurity with her body-did you see how she hid behind that towel?. Cmon Des, give up the cinderella story and find some real girl power, will ya? Oh and Stefanie, I don’t think anyone was fooled (until I read one of the comments above- so maybe 1 person). that woman is awful. ugh. I don’t think Bryan is any better but please. groan. I feel cheated of Dan, he was hot.
    Peace…

  24. Oh, and I have dislocated both my shoulders in separate incidences, and I can tell you that when something is dislocated it is a whole different kind of pain that does make you want to puke or pass out. I was lucky enough to have a medical grad reduce the first one, and I put the second back in place myself. the pain is that bad that you would do that. so i’m not saying Brooks isn’t a baby, and the oxygen is way over the top, but the original lay on the ground thing… that I can see happening. I also broke 3 ribs in my first injury and I didn’t even realize it till hours later because the shoulder hurt so bad.

  25. Of course Ali is an actress!!! Remember she had to “act” like she had any interest in the remaining guys after she met Roberto! She has basically admitted that more than a few times how painful it was to pretend interest in anyone else.

    Will she ever become a major box office star…nah!

  26. Whoever is in charge of hair and makeup for Des needs to be fired. There have been a few shots of her looking decent, with softer hair and makeup….but for the most part, she looks terrible.

    She’s a cute girl and has a real all american look….but the severe hair parted in the middle along with the massive amounts of makeup….make her look awful.

  27. Don’t forget her stylist. They’re going the Ali route with the drab sportswear. Does this girl really live in LA. And she’s a bridal designer? Anyone have that URL?

  28. Wavecatchingmom: there is a big difference between a dislocated shoulder and a fracture or dislocated finger. Fingers hurt, sure, but you don’t pass out from them. My brother dislocated his finger and I popped in right back in for him. We bought a splint at Rite Aid and taped it up. I’m sure it was sore for a week or two, but he needed nothing more than Motrin for the pain. Now, if Brooks had dislocated a shoulder, then I wouldn’t say a thing. I’ve seen it happen and it’s pretty crippling right after it happens…. but that’s NOT what happened to Brooks. He’s just a girly man. No two ways about it! I doubt he would be able to consummate his relationship with Des without flipping her over and conjuring up mental images of Tom Cruise.

  29. rob22, eeewww. except calling him a girly man is an insult to girls like me who popped their own shoulders back in place and trolled the beach for people with good pain killers before going into the medical clinic to get a prescription :) .

  30. Her final choice is…Brooks?! Sorry, but I think he’s gay.
    The only “normal” guy is Michael, the FL prosecuting attorney. What a bunch of “girls”. Whiners.

  31. This bunch of guys seem really effeminate to me, or is that what’s out there these days.

  32. Does anyone else remember RS saying the house that they do all the filming at was put on the market last year and they probably won’t be filming there anymore? This was when Emily’s season was taping a year ago.

    Must not have sold.

  33. addicted2rs- I could be wrong, but from what I remember I’m pretty sure they used a completely different mansion for Emily’s season. The regular mansion is in California, her mansion was in North Carolina so she could be close to her daughter. The one in North Carolina was the one on the market.

  34. Zach not K, but some other letter looks effeminate. Also he looks like a cartoon character, like is overly tan head can just pop off any time.

  35. In Brooks’ defense for being such a wuss: some people just can’t handle medical stuff being done on them. I was in my CNA training class and someone (a guy) passed out just from watching the instructor clean a dummy’s privates! It’s odd to me and others that don’t have that issue, but some people just get weak involving any medical procedure.

    On another note, I would LOVE if the next bachelor was Zak. He’s sexy, funny, energetic and just seems like a great lead. It always tends to be top 4, and between Zak, Drew, and Chris, I’d definitely pick Zak as nice as the other two guys seem. Though I think it is more likely to be Drew, given his dramatic backstory.

  36. Ugh, this season is sooo cheesy!!! I think it’s Desiree? Or the combination of Des and the guys maybe..

  37. WHY is my picture showing up?? I need a gravatar expert to help me how to get this to stop!! Haha.. Help!!!!!

  38. ^I am sooooo confused… Steve, are you playing a joke on me?? I take back any bad thing I’ve ever said!!! : )

  39. I told yall way back when Steve first posted Des’ guys bios and pics that I personally didn’t think any of them were even remotely good looking. Watching the first 3 episodes hasn’t changed my mind one bit.

  40. I apologize to anyone forced to see my face so up-close and personal like that… if it is still there, feel free to log out of rs, and delete your history, that should fix the problem.. sorry, everyone!!

  41. Imagine if they had “The Bachelor After Dark”!! Yikes!!!! Maybe they’d at least they’d attract a new Gay Porn demographic. Maybe they could prop up the ratings that way.

  42. So glad my husband and I aren’t the only ones wondering where all the real men went this season! We watched with more DVR FF than any any previous season. When they got to the Thorn&Rose or Rose&thorn ranch, we watched about 10 minutes of that misery and called it quits. Either Des told them she liked girly boys or Chris’s staff is trying to get the franchise cancelled, whatever, we have better things to do with our time than watch this sorry season. Too bad, we both liked Des on Bachelor! These producers seriously need to get their act together. I guess I’ll get my updates from RS for the rest of the season. Good for RS, not so good for ABC or Des!!

  43. Agree with trump hair on des, someone fix that please. On a better note, her gum line has improved slightly. And just a tip, learn how to jump into the pool naturally…des looks like she is giving herself a severe case of whiplash with each jump.

  44. STOP! okay, back up. rewind. STOP!… play.
    ^ this is what we did with the shot of kasey and des jumping into the pool. we think kasey looks completely ridic and it crack me and my friends up every time. watch the jump… watch… JUST DO IT. for the laughs.

    other than that >> so much MEAT in this episode… hugging, dogpiliing (sp?), hot tubbing… just gross.

    STEVE: enjoying the nickname M&M, so perfect + i don’t know how this guy is a federal prosecuter… i work litigation mostly in Dade County so will be on the lookout.

    keep up the great work! and honestly, this is horrible, but “all the right reasons” stupid song has been stuck in my head this week. i can’t take it and will never be able to use this terminology again.

  45. Is Stephanie an actress? She looks so familiar to me. In any case, as far as this season goes, I agree it not that entertaining over all. Still, I am watching and so are you!
