The Bachelorette Desiree Recap Including “Men Tell All” News & Brooks Forester Likes Em’ Old. Like Twice His Age.

July 9th, 2013 | 138 Comments | Posted in The Bachelorette 9 - Desiree

They are definitely changing things up this season with the ABC schedule coming out last week stating the “Men Tell All” (which tapes next Monday), will now air after the hometown dates episode, and not after the overnight dates episode, when it normally does. Usually they tape it a couple days before the overnight date episode airs, the guy who gets eliminated on the overnight date episodes is at the taping, and the audience is shown that episode before the guys come out. Not this season. I’m assuming now with it being shown after hometowns on the July 22nd episode, that means that Brooks, Chris, and Drew won’t be in attendance, because they’ll all still be on the show.

It also means they will basically have a two-part finale with the overnight dates episode airing July 29th, and the finale airing August 5th. So it’s safe to say at the end of the July 29th episode, there will be some sort of cliffhanger leading into the finale the following week, something that the promos last week alluded to. Yes, there is something screwy that goes down in Antigua which could be a bit out of the ordinary for this show, and I’m not sure what it is. However, it does not change the bottom line, which is that Desiree ended up engaged to Brooks in Antigua and they are still engaged today. All the bells and whistles they will throw at the viewers the next few weeks will try to get you to believe that didn’t happen, or that she’s with one of the other two guys, or that she chose no one. None of it will be true. She’s engaged to Brooks and has been since May 8th.

So about 3 weeks ago (June 18th to be exact), I was sent an email by someone who told me that her and her family have gone down to Puerto Rico every New Year Eve for the last 11 years, and that back in late December of 2011 (so, 18 months ago), her mother had met a new “friend.” She proceeded to tell me that her mother had quite the time with her new “friend” that night and she had proof of it. Well, that “friend” was Brooks Forester, who was in Puerto Rico for New Year’s Eve that year with his best friend, Tyler Burton. You can see Tyler’s Twitter feed right here where he subtly, and not so subtly, likes talking about Brooks and posting Vine videos. So she passed the pictures along from that night taken at the El San Juan Hotel in Puerto Rico. The last picture is his buddy Tyler with her.

It was when I received these pictures was when I tweeted the infamous “Oh Brooks, Brooks, Brooks…” line. Why? Ummmm, wouldn’t you after looking at that? Holy crap. That’s f***ing hilarious. How easy did Brooks make the rest of this season for me? I can never look at the guy the same after seeing those. Geez, show a little discretion Brooks. By the way, this woman whose face Brooks is sucking off was 51 years old at the time. Now as mentioned above to clear up any confusion, and for media outlets to run with the pictures without reading what I wrote, this did NOT happen since he’s been engaged to Des. This happened on New Year’s Eve of 2011 (heading in to 2012), so 18 months ago. But still, ummmm, is there a reason he’s tonguing down someone who could technically be his mother? I mean, I’ve never made out with a 51 year old, nor do I plan to. Well, I’m sure I will later in life. Like, when I’m 70. My friends haven’t made out with women almost twice their age either, as I’m guessing most self-respecting men haven’t. Oh yeah, and to make this story worse, at the time these pictures were taken, Brooks was dating this girl from Utah named Jennifer Hawkins.

B&J1B&J2B&J3B&J4B&J5

These pictures with Jennifer were taken on their trip together to Costa Rica in April of 2012. I was told by friends of Jennifer’s that Brooks would no doubt deny (if he ever even acknowledges it- highly doubtful) that he and Jennifer weren’t exclusive at the time he went to Puerto Rico, but it’d be a lie. Jennifer absolutely thought they were exclusive and even though we are 18 months removed from New Year’s Eve in Puerto Rico and they have since broken up, I’m guessing she probably wouldn’t be too thrilled knowing that’s what Brooks was doing on his vacation with a woman almost twice his age while he and Jennifer were together. Not that I need to be Captain Obvious here Brooks, but Jennifer blows this woman away. I’d say Jennifer blows Des away too, but that’s just my opinion. Nice job buddy.

Now, I fully expect the Brooks crazies to dismiss this as a guy having fun, it’s New Year’s Eve, he was drunk, she was all over him, blah blah blah. No different than Jef and Arie lunatics that think neither of those guys can do anything wrong. I’d save your breath. If he was making out with a hot 25 year old, I wouldn’t bother posting the pictures because there’d be nothing interesting about that. Of course he’s made out with women before. At least I hope he had. But making out with women almost twice your age when you have a girlfriend back home is not normal behavior, I don’t care who you are. Please. You can spin it all you want and make excuses til the sun goes down, but there are facts that cannot be disputed:

-Brooks and his friend Tyler were in Puerto Rico for New Years Eve together
-Brooks made out with this 51 year old woman for God knows what reason
-Brooks was dating Jennifer at the time he took this trip

So I’ll let you decide what’s worse, that this guy decided to tongue down someone older than 50, or that he did it all while have a girlfriend back home. I mean, if we’re gonna give James sh** for admitting to cheating on his girlfriend years ago, shouldn’t Brooks be chided for doing this just 18 months ago? I guess if Brooks didn’t want these pictures getting out, he shouldn’t have done it in the first place. Sure, I’m guessing Brooks never thought at that time in a million years that he’d end up being a public figure 18 months down the road and these pictures would surface of him, but unfortunately, they did. Thought I’d share them, because frankly, they are flat out hilarious. When this girl told me she had pictures of that night, I thought for sure I’d just be getting some drunk pictures of them in a group or whatever. Certainly wasn’t expecting THAT. Go get you some, B!

Oh Brooks, Brooks, Brooks…

  1. wow. I sure as hell would be super pissed after reading this about Brooks if I was Des. Sure making out with someone who is old enough to be your parent is really really weird. But doing it while you had a steady girlfriend is nearly unforgivable.

  2. Wow……this is good stuff…..and yep…..Des definitely needs to be thinking long and hard about Brooks…….clearly he isn’t the guy she thinks he is……….love that you get this kind of stuff and let us in on it……..and I cringe about Drew……I so do not want him to be the bachelor………I like Des…..but the show would have been so much more interesting if Lesley would have been The Bachelorette….just because Sean didn’t pick her for his final four….doesn’t mean lots of us didn’t love her and she has personality out the wazoo…..a season of her as The Bachelorette would have been awesome…….Drew…another season of dullsville…….you know they knew this season wasn’t good…..they have spent next to nothing on dates…..yikes….that tells you a whole lot right there!!!!!

  3. Who gives a rats hind end who Brooks was dating, or kissing, 18 months ago. Holy crap, Des was chasing Sean Lowe around the same time. Should Brooks hold that against her now?

    Sometimes you’re just a big whiny b!tch Steve, and act like Perez Hilton. This is one of those times, Steve. I thought you had info on Brooks stepping out on Des post Bachelor, but talking about nothing from 18 months ago, then showing that–gasp–he had a previous girlfriend as if it is some big thing? Crazy to think that people who come on this show actually had a previous life. How dare they!

    That is a whole lot of nothing.

  4. Really THIS is the story? WOW. You must really be hard up for traffic to keep everyone on pins and needles for this crap. Its clearly all in good fun. You need to get out of the house Steve seriously and be with some other than that damn dog.

  5. If I never see or hear another poem again it will be way too soon.

    It is such a slam to Des that Brooks isn’t sure of his feelings toward her, but he was all over that older lady.
    The worst part is Brooks had a hot girlfriend at home. I don’t see this one working out.

  6. So that was the dish on Brooks? That he was making out with a cougar? So what?!? A lot of younger women do that with older men all the time

    And if Brooks was in an exclusive, monogamous relationship with Jennifer at the time, New Years Eve, why was he travelling with a buddy? Why were they not spending, celebrating New Years Eve together?

  7. Last night when Des told Chris Harrison that she was in love with Brooks and Chris H asked “Is this over then?”
    She should have said yes. Then they could have wrapped it up and saved us another 6 hours of our lives that we will never get back.

  8. I don’t really get this big news about Brooks. Yeah, it’s super weird that he made out with a 51 year old, but seriously…if he was in an exclusive relationship with another girl, why wasn’t she with him celebrating New Years Eve?? That just doesn’t make sense.

    And I don’t see how this affects him being engaged to Des 18 months later.

  9. Last night was the most boring episode in the Bachelor/Bachelorette franchise that I’ve EVER watched. I’m shocked that RS didn’t acknowledge that. I love this ridiculous show and am an ardent defender, but even I could hardly get through last night’s episode. I really dislike Des as the Bachelorette — and even though he’s kind of funny looking, I think Zak would be the best Bachelor option of this crew. First, he has a personality; and second, he likes girls. Two qualities that Drew does not share.

  10. I should say that they are two qualities that Drew does not SEEM to share. I obviously do not know for sure.

  11. Just looked at Brooks’s ex Jennifer’s Facebook page. Wow that girl is gorgeous, and she’s friends with Bentley and Jef Holm. This Bachelor world (even though I guess she’s one removed from it) is really incestuous.

  12. Steve, live a little dude. It’s not THAT weird for a dude to make out with a woman twice his age.

    BTW, Zack’s teeth are so unnaturally bleached white, it’s borderline distracting. No man in their 30s has teeth that are that white.

  13. Oh my GOD Steve, I have never laughed so hard at one of your recaps before. It just cracked me up.

    Although, @ AJ13, I will agree with you that a guy macking on an older lady really isn’t very strange. I’m 29 and female but I have seen plenty of guys give into advances from a cougar. Mainly because in their minds, they believe they are doing her old ass a favor by showing her attention that she so clearly wants.

  14. Also Steve- lovely reference to “I’m on a boat”. LOVE THAT SONG. I hate clubs but when my girlfriends drag me out and that jam comes on at a club I thoroughly enjoy it! Along with “J*zz in my pants” LOL!!!

  15. First I was incensed at Steve’s agism, then I realized that he’s just trying to keep things stirred up. At least that’s what I HOPE he was doing. Otherwise…wow guy, get a grip. There was a great interview with Dustin Hoffman on NPR’s Fresh Air recently where in it he talked about the movie Tootsie (delightful movie by the way) where he played a character who got involved with cross-dressing as a middle aged woman and how it caused him to re-examine his own stereotypes about women, age, and beauty. Here’s the link to this part of it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xPAat-T1uhE&feature=player_embedded

  16. Egad Steve – usually your sarcasm is great . I won’t dispute that Brooks was skanky to run around whilst in a [theoretically it would appear] committed relationship. Especially with someone whose tanning habits haven’t really slowed the aging process. Or that too large an age disparity can be gross. And you did redeem yourself partially mentioning Jane Seymour etal.

    But life isn’t over at 50, and many of us there haven’t hit menopause yet. I’m assuming that line was for literary impact — but I confess this was the first blog I’ve read that left me feeling a little hurt personally. Embarrassing as that is to admit.

    I personally have always tended to date much [though not to the extent in your tale] younger, and no — I was not a sugar momma. More of a Petra Pan never ready to marry — more a serial monogamist.

    Granted, I look really young — was still getting carded into my 30s, so now at 50, people [no it's not vain imagination] think I’m early-mid 30s.

    So while my reaction is obviously colored by my personal experiences [as all opinions are] — I would ask that your sarcasm remain [as it usually does] directed at those on the show, crazy fans that believe it is real, & those asking dumb repeat questions.

  17. I don’t particularly crave Drew to be next bach. However, I don’t think I’d hate it, at least not if he had a great cast of crazy women to contend with. I still think Zak would be the best personality-wise, but agree with Steve in saying that the producers are clearly setting Drew up as Bachelor and Zak really doesn’t have much of a shot at this point. Also I love Chris but him as the Bachelor would be a season of terrible “poetry”, so no thanks.

  18. Old women date younger men all the time. So what’s the big deal?

    I thought the Island of Madera was so beautiful. It’s like taking a trip without ever leaving your own city.

  19. Geez Steve….every time I think I like you and that you’re witty, smart and have it together…..you erase it all with donation buttons and this ridiculous “scandal.”

    If this Des thing doesn’t work out based on your news, then there wasn’t much of a relationship to start with.

    This woman isn’t attractive and it has nothing to do with her age. Have you seen Sharon Stone lately? At 50+ there are plenty of men who would die to get in bed with her.

    Who cares about this? You sound like a crusty old man who is very judgmental and rigid. Get out more often Steve. Oh Steve, Steve, Steve.

  20. I wouldn’t be surprised if they went with Roberto as the next Bach at this point. He almost got the gig last time, and I really see no one out of this group that moves that needle.

    Plus, it might give them a chance to revamp the format. It needs it badly. I am so sick of hte priducers prodding the contestants to tell everyone how love is like hte activity they just did. “How is love like being in the clouds on a mountain”? How is love like riding fast down a hill in a go-kart? How is love like going on a deserted island for a picnic? How is love like–gag. The formula needs to be refreshed or this franchise is about done.

  21. Comment Part 2

    ….just finished reading the whole column where Steve continued to drone on about this older woman topic and I can only conclude…..Steve, you need to get laid. Hump your dog, hump your bedpost….something.

    Also….Catherine and her giggly group were only brought on so Des could ask…how are you and Sean? and Catherine is in some sort of age regression time warp about boys. She would seem more appropriate to me if she were in pigtails and knee socks. Lordy girl…grow up.

  22. Here is my take on the photos: They look like photos of a woman wanting to kiss someone on New Year’s Eve – possibly at midnight ?? They look like a guy who is actually trying to pull away from her and laughing about the whole incident. I am not defending him – however – the photos are not that convincing to me. It was New Year’s Eve after all. Is it possible he was just being a “nice” guy and making her night a happy one. Just the fact someone took photos makes me think that is what it was all about.

  23. Steve, why is it acceptable for you to imagine yourself kissing on a 50 year old when you’re 70 (i.e., young enough to be your daughter) but an attractive woman kissing on a younger man is disgusting? You’re assuming that the “exclusive” claim made by the ex and friends of Brooks is solid truth, but you have no proof of that and presenting it as anything but one side of the story is beneath you to suggest and demeaning to us as your readers. Evidently you haven’t figured out that the majority of your readers (and the show audience, for that matter) are female, and probably on the older side (and I willingly acknowledge myself as such). Not sure what you do on NYE, but it’s pretty common for people to party, drink too much, and to possibly behave in a manner they otherwise wouldn’t do — and especially when away from home base.

    Of course it’s your choice to skewer folks on this show, and it’s our choice to appreciate (or not) your comments. In this instance I’m pretty disappointed with your arrows — sorry.

  24. That was what the big build up was for? Pretty lame, imo.

    What was kind of shocking though was the amount of time you spent making fun of 50 year old women. Yes, I know you said you were making fun of Brooks, but in reality it was of older women. Women who are 50 aren’t candidates for a nursing home. They don’t walk with canes. They have no more problems with their digestion than 40 year olds. The vast majority are not menopausal.

    I cannot fathom why you spent so much time saying really awful things about women who are not even 15 years older than yourself. In a few years, when you are 50, I hope you will feel vibrant and full of fun as most women that age feel. And, if on some New Year’s Eve some woman 20 years younger wants to flirt with you, I’ll bet you will flirt back. You’ll kiss her and chuckle about it later on as just another good time in what I hope is a life time of good times.

    To me the woman looked pretty and fit. Probably Brooks didn’t check her drivers license before flirting with her. Maybe he doesn’t freak out over the idea of that a woman may be fun to be around even when she has passed Reality Steve’s expiration date. That you found this so shocking, is kind of strange and even hilarious in a weird way.

    Please, continue to make fun of Brooks in any way you’d like, but please don’t make fun of a whole category of people for no other reason than pure prejudice. I ask this in the same way I’d ask you not to make fun of people on the basis of their ethnicity. It’s unfair, hurtful, and not worthy of you.

  25. RS is showing his own lack of maturity and the usual chauvinistic double standard crap, possibly because he’s never taken a look at himself and his own values and peter pan attitudes. I always have 26 year olds hitting on me, I think it is because this is an age when boys want to be taken seriously as men or something – I don’t ever feel like anyone in their 20s has anything interesting to say, all of the contestants male or female who are truly interesting are in their early 30s, period. Anyhow, Brooks just looks wasted, and he isn’t pulling away. Whether out of pity or just adventurousness, it doesn’t speak much about his real maturity level, he seems like he doesn’t want to grow up – the angle the show seems to be taking and that goes with what RS wrote at the very beginning. nothing more, nothing less. I agree that anyone who goes to an island for new years with a guy friend is “on a break” or not serious. I will be catty and say that Jennifer is a bit of a butterface, so I disagree that she’s better than Des based on looks, but if her personality is better, than yes, by all means she’d be a step up from Des. I think Brooks will go along with the engagement for the post airing attn and then they will break up. I still am voting for Chris as the next bachelor although they have to make a no poetry rule. I didn’t think this episode was too excrutiating, but then again, abc.com quit right before the 2-1 date. I agree that RS should get a life, and possibly brush up on his actual knowledge about women. I think because mostly the teenie boppers write him for advice, he may think that is his demographic? he does give decent advice and is always respectful, notsomuch in the recaps.

  26. Look, guys hang with older women for one reason. They’re a sure thing. If you’re too lazy to chase after something hot, and you have low standards, then why not? When I was 25, I went the cougar route myself. Difference was, she was 38, not 51. 51 is extreme for a 25 year old. I agree with Steve. It deserves mocking. I took some abuse for being with a 38 yr old…. and a 38 yr old is way closer to their prime than a 51 year old. That’s just reality folks. I know we all want to think we’re still hot at 50, but we’re not…. unless we are speaking about our relative hotness towards those our own age. But that doesn’t really count for much. Now for all of you that are going to jump on me for being ageist or sexist, I think the same when I see a 50 something guy with a 20 something woman. First of all, the 20 something woman is there for the cash & prizes. OK, I get it. But the guy….. and this is almost universal…. thinks he’s still hot & can still pull it off with a younger girl. But dude, really, you’ve got bank and are willing to throw something at the girl. That’s all it is. Your Grecian Formula died hair, bald spot (and probably comb over), wrinkles and bulging belly are decidedly not hot. Nobody in their 50s should be with anyone in their 20s and vice versa. It’s not a legit relationship. There are agendas at work on both sides that don’t lead to “happily ever after”.

  27. Really Steve?! Bashing a 51 year old woman as old? Pitiful, childish and immature, that’s what you are.

  28. Rob22, I think you are right that most young men are not at all interested in a 50 year old woman. I have no problem with that. My problem is that Steve did not make fun of Brooks, but instead made fun of wome who are 50 practically declaring them to be hideous and distasteful and declaring that he would only kiss one if he were TWENTY years older than she. That is assuming any 50 year old would want to kiss a icky 70 year old when she could fin a 20 something in a bar in Puerto Rico.

  29. Hey, RS, I’m wondering if you sent your mom a copy of today’s column. I’ll bet she’d be interested in knowing how little you think of women over 40.

    In the meantime, aren’t you already having trouble attracting women your own age? How do you believe you’ll be able to pull a woman 20 years your junior at 70 years old?

  30. Wow, I thought this recap was pretty disgusting, actually. I only come here for the gossip and spoilers, as I don’t think RS is a very good writer. There is sophomoric and there’s his usual drivel. But this? This was an ageist rant and it truly was mean spirited, narrow minded and petty.

    I wouldn’t have minded a mention, but seeing as the ‘news’ about Brooks was lame, at best, this age harping only added to fuel to the fire.

    Get over it, Steve. Contrary to your very limited point of view, life doesn’t end at forty. And I’m your age! I shouldn’t have to tell you this! Really, dude. Please get over it, yourself and your male privilege.

  31. Steve, I forgot to say this previously: I think you’re naive to believe that “none” of your friends would consider hooking up with a woman like Brooks seems to have met a couple of years ago. It happens far, far more often than you believe, and part of the attraction is the temporary nature of it; perhaps your “friends” don’t trust you to support their choices and so do not fully confide in you.

    Oh, and rob22 — clearly you’ve not seen “Harold and Maude” and if you have, you’ve missed the entire point of the story: that love is ageless, blind, and infinite in its possibilities. When you and Steve finally figure that out, perhaps bashing we “50 somethings” won’t seem like such a fun thing to do.

  32. Windsurfer….saw Harold and Maude…. I’d argue that the point of Harold and Maude was that we should not focus on our inevitable future, and death, and instead focus on now…. and take risks,love and live life. Maude helped Harold understand that…. Although she arguably failed to follow her own lesson at the end. Notice that Harold, at the end, no longer went to funerals nor did he chase older women. he learned the lesson and was taking a shot at a hot girl his own age.

  33. Wow, this ageist tirade against women over 50 is both disgusting and bizarre. Did some hot 52-year old broad shoot you down or something? Did the girl who sent you the pictures of her mother and Brooks realize that you were going to insult and denigrate her mother? If so, shame on her for exposing her mother to your derision. And shame on you.

  34. And, you may have missed my point. 50 something women are great for 50 something men and vice versa. Neither 20 something men or women should be with someone who is 50….because they are not authentic relationships. There is always an agenda. And neither 50 something men, nor women are hot, except in relation to others their own age…. Those Hollywood stars you will call out as hot have all been surgically enhanced. That’s not authentically hot.

  35. To me, these photos look like two drunk people goofing around on New Year’s Eve. I doubt anything even happened after this.

    However… I am really uncomfortable with RS’s repeated comments about the woman involved. She didn’t ask for her photosto be placed up for ridicule. RS’s comments were also very mean-spirited toward older women in general. Brooks placed himself in a position to face ridicule by appearing on this ridiculous show and I think his behavior is fair game. But please cut out the ageism and sexism. It totally took me out of what is supposed to be a fun read. Steve, Brooks was having a good time. You are being mean.

    Jeezus @kjopo84! I hate to tell you, but men don’t necessarily hook up with older women their “old asses” need attention! I’m only 39, 10 years your senior, and though I may not be “Cougar” age yet (More like Puma), I can guarantee you that men would find me 10 times more attractive than you at your ripe age of 29… And I have no idea what you look like. Especially with THAT attitude. The good thing about us “older women” is confidence. And the fact that we have MASTERED the art of seduction. Give it 10 more years. You’ll understand better, sweetheart.

  37. Wow Steve, you really got beat up on this one. Everyone seems to be taking it so personally, good golly people . . . hop off if you get offended to easily! Hey, this fan still loves you!! :) )

  38. I’m a female in my sixties. I loved Steve’s take on this week’s show. And especially the stuff about Brooks and the older woman.

    Every guy I know who is Steve’s age (about the same age difference as with Brooks’ make out cougar) is either related to me or is my godson. I’ve met their friends and not a one of them is anyone I’d want to kiss like that! Either drunk on NYEve or otherwise. But I love the heck out of all of them and enjoy hearing them talk about all the “important” things in life. And I definitely do enjoy looking at some of them :)

    I’m voting Chris for the next bachelor… but only if they put a “no poems” clause in his contract. Also he would have to change the spelling of his name or his name entirely so this old lady does not get him mixed up with Chris Harrison.

    rob22, you are correct. There are agendas on both sides. Donald Trump was born in 1946, his current wife was born in 1970. She’s got looks. He’s got money. But, even with all his money he holds no attraction for me.

    As far as RS’s dating life… we don’t know anything about it. And I don’t want to.

    I want to know the important stuff. Like “Why is the driveway wet?” ;) And who might have been running around on his last girlfriend/boyfriend before they went on the show. And I want to know this stuff without having to buy the magazines. RS can buy them and probably write them off as part of his job expenses on his tax return.

  39. I’ve seen Harold and Maude and came away with a whole different take than you two, windsurfer and rob22. The darn thing played for over two years at a local “we always play the same movie for over two years” theater. Six of us – all the same age – women went and we all thought it was dumb.

    Now, on to the hair gel abuse on this show. I saw on Twitter that WEN® Hair Care products were in their goodie bags. The only site I found was for women’s hair care. They should have put a reminder in the bag – like with Brylcreem.

    Remember boys… “Brylcreem — A Little Dab’ll Do Ya!”.

  40. This is my first time commenting. I’m 50 and my sons (both under 25) have told me their friends continually comment that I’m a MILF. I’ve had many opportunities to hook up with men that young, but I absolutely have no desire to, I did not pursue them and I’m not desperate. I’m not telling you this because I’m proud, but rather because your comments are self-indulgent and uninformed regarding 50 year old women and their desirability.

    You can think what you want about women that are middle aged, but you seem to have no pride in your writing skills nor did you use any kind of professional ethics, in that you not only gratefully received intel from an insider but then you bashed her mother, over and over and over. Don’t you think that might dissuade a person from sharing photos or a story with you in the future, out of fear you might repeat the same aggressiveness?

    Look, I normally like to read your column and find it funny. Not this time.

    The truth is that even if you wanted to hook up with me, I wouldn’t be interested. Your immaturity is frankly a bit of a turn off at this point.

  41. (Accidentally posted this under last week’s column, so reposted here, must have had a “senior moment”. Since I am only 3 years from being really, really old – I find your comments about a 51 year old very insulting. While 1-2 sentences would have been “ok” – to go on and on about it was troubling. It was New Year’s Eve, probably midnight, alcohol…. I can’t believe you said “self-respecting men” – seriously? Like a 51 year old is so disgusting. Do you have any idea the average age of your readers? You might not have meant to be so offensive, but you were. Might want to post an apology or clarification before this turns into a “Paula Deen” situation. ABC execs probably read this column and cheered – finally, something to stop viewers from reading your column and they didn’t have to pay any lawyers.
    Also agree that the person who sent you those pictures probably thought you would make fun of Brooks, not the women in the picture.

  42. Who gives a crap Steve, funny how you post those pics and you have silver Cupid a old woman for younger guys dating site as your sponsor, pretty fishy and obvious too me. LOL. How about get a real job steve. You only post spoilers from others, otherwise you don’t know crap on your own. I know more about the show than you do trust me.

  43. @ hevin111,

    My last intention was to be offensive in any way. My point was that it wasn’t strange in my opinion and I didn’t see anything wrong with it. I personally don’t thing of cougar (older woman dating a younger man) to be a derogatory word. My sister is 33 and has dated her boyfriend, now 25, for the past two years. I have dated men 10 or more years older than me. It’s not something I see any issue with it. My comment was on Brooks’ probable attitude. Thinking, “aww this will probably make this woman’s day to make out with a young hunk like me”. I wasn’t saying he was RIGHT that older woman are starved for attention, I was only saying that most 20 something men I know who have dated women at least 10 years their senior seem to have that attitude. I don’t know the backstory of this lady, and I think she’s a pretty lady. My main argument was that it’s really not a big deal at all.

  44. Anyway, I’m sorry if I offended you. That definitely wasn’t what I was meaning to do. I love all people! Seriously.

  45. No need to comment on my looks though, especially when you have no clue how beautiful I actually am:) I am a nice person, and saying “old ass” was really just a joke, I’m not seriously saying someone who is 50 is old. My mom is 58 and hot as hell, and I don’t consider her to be old.

    I’m sure you’re equally as gorgeous ok?
