The Bachelorette 9 - Desiree

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

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.


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…

    The driveway is wet?!

    but seriously…RS typically shares information that is relevant and appreciated. I agree the Brooks NYE indiscretion was relevant; however, repeatedly harping on the woman’s age was not warranted or appreciated by a number of readers judging by the comments section.

    Food for thought… before you make assumptions and/or judgments about others based on age, keep in mind that what seems old now will change as you age… guaranteed. One day you may be that 50 year old who still feels like you are 20 or 30, regardless of your actual age or physical appearance.

    P.S. I am younger and date people my own age, but have grandparents who have a large age gap between them and are very happy. I guess it just comes down to this – the indiscretion is what matters, not the woman’s age…

    Yeah, my dad and stepmom started dating when he was 30 and she was 20. And my daughter’s paternal grandparents are also separated by 10 years, only Grandma is older in this case. Not a huge thing.

    July 9, 2013 at 7:13 PM

    Dear RS,

    First time I write as I am compelled to because of your comments about a 51 year old woman. Grow up young man, 51 is not old. I am 55 and not ashamed of it. Too bad you feel I should be ashamed of my age and assume, (tongue and cheek right), that we all smell like mothballs and Metamucil. Were you showing your sophomoric side in this piece? Steve, Steve, Steve, grow up and get some experience, travel, kiss a good looking fifty year old, you will be surprised.

  4. kjopo84

    July 9, 2013 at 7:16 PM

    I’ve never seen so much anger toward RS for his columns before. He’s getting a beat down! And I actually thought a lot of what he said was funny, HOWEVER, it would’ve been much funnier if the woman had been like 70 or something. Because I agree, 51 really isn’t old in my opinion.

  5. akblondee

    July 9, 2013 at 7:18 PM

    As a 51+ year old women, I have to tell you that mothballs belong in old people’s house, of which I am not, ALSO there is not a single drop of Metamucil in my house. That being said, there’s not enough alcohol in the world to get me to suck face with a 26 year old while his friends take pictures…..I strive to not embarrass my 33 year old daughter! Brooks is too funny!

    I am a fortysomething male who recently dated a ‘hot’ twenty something female for 2+ years. I did not buy her things other than dinner. I am glad for the experience and don’t care to date another twenty something. Just cause they’re young and hot doesn’t mean they are a prize !!. As Dustin Hoffman recently said we place way too much emphasis on looks. My next g/f doesn’t need to be ‘hot’ nor young. I want a big smile and a great attitude attached to a woman with class and discretion. . Age matters to an extent but is not as relevant to me anymore. Give me a lady with class.


    July 9, 2013 at 7:32 PM

    Sooo . . . you are a bit of a chauvinist pig. Wow. I knew this already as I’ve been reading this column for awhile (also just for the gossip and spoilers) and mostly roll my eyes at Steve’s attempts to be funny and consider it basically harmless. About what you find online these days. But this column and the relentless bashing of an entire demographic was really gross. In our media and culture at large, there is a consistent lack of respect towards women (not only by men, women contribute to this problem), particularly older women. This is a serious issue in our culture, and one that only gets worse with crap like this being put out in the universe. Steve needs to be called out on this, glad to see I wasn’t the only one who is voicing how much of a pig he is. Grow up, Steve. Hopefully you spend more than two seconds contemplating why you might have offended people instead of assuming we are all stupid idiots who can’t take a joke.

    I love Reality Steve’s site, but I HAVE to object to the posts about 50+ women! I am now mid-50, NOT menopausal, and while now happily married, before that my boyfriend was 20 years younger! And even after he was married, (this all about five or so years ago) he was sex-texting me for a hookup! Missed the old girl and her good workout routines (in the down south area that is!) Fifties are the new thirties and while RS is of generation where still guys can get girls that are their grand-daughters age, the sexes are catching up.

    Bad, bad, bad RS, I would spank you but for your pre-prejudice, but you would be tossing Geritol puns at me, hardly, I still get the young ones chasing after me, being a former bellydancer and the last time I told someone my age, they were in shock and said I had to be in my thirties.

    Otherwise, love this site and the spoilers!!! Just had to set the record straight.

    kjopo84: In response to your suggestion that if Steve had only made his disgusting comments about a woman who was “70” instead of “50”, all you’re doing is moving the agism bar to another point. It’s still just as offensive. There are many healthy, active, vital people in their 70’s, and believe it or not, even in their 80’s and older. Slamming someone for their age alone is just plain insulting, nasty, and discriminatory, and if you do it in the workplace, liable to get you in very hot legal water because it’s not just offensive and wrong, it’s illegal.

  11. Athena

    July 9, 2013 at 7:48 PM

    And to Rob and whoever else said that there’s always some sort of “agenda” between the two people with a big age gap between them that is unrelated to their basic compatibility, communication, etc., that can certainly be the case, but it’s another generalization that simply isn’t always true. The absolutely BEST relationship I’ve ever known of began between my friend when she was in her mid twenties and her future husband who was 24 years older (just about the exact ages of Brooks and the woman Steve trashed). They have had a loving, respectful, passionate marriage for many years now that everyone who knows them agrees is the kind anyone would dream of and that few achieve.

    July 9, 2013 at 7:52 PM

    All I can say in defense of Steve is thank goodness he’s given us something to get excited about this season!!! Thank you Steve, and I hope you made those comments with the intent of livening things up, and increasing your readership, and not because you really and truly believe what you wrote.

  13. freeasabird

    July 9, 2013 at 8:28 PM

    According to my Twitter feed realityshowreport dot com just picked up Steve’s story.

    To the person who mentioned the Silver Singles (?) ad on Steve’s site. He has no control over the ads. They are served up by an ad service. Probably Google Adsense and Adnexus among others. Steve does not pick the ads.

    Wish I could find the picture from a couple of seasons ago. It was on Chris H’s Twitter feed. He tweeted “Now you know why the driveway is wet.” There was a pic of him in his jeans and casual shirt hosing down the driveway in the late afternoon. Don’t know if HE actually helps with that but seems like it might be something to do to kill time.

  14. gigi1701

    July 9, 2013 at 8:45 PM

    I agree with the comment about 80 somethings, but really this is not a workplace and 50 is not really that old, these days. A twenty plus age difference between an older man and younger woman is common place, but god forbid the woman be older, now I know it isn’t always the best relationship if the couple were to have children (past a certain age that is), but I know several couples where the woman was significantly older and it works out just fine for them. And sometimes not, just doesn’t make it an automatic glass house to throw stones at is all I am saying.

  15. elizabeth82

    July 9, 2013 at 8:52 PM

    I think all the 50-something female readers posting here are taking what Steve said way too personally! Pretty sure Steve doesn’t think 50-something women are repulsive. He’s just ragging on the large age difference between Brooks and this lady.

  16. bnfan

    July 9, 2013 at 9:05 PM

    Steve, Brooks said he was at “jogging.” In that same conversation, Des said she was at “running.” Then in the conversation with Chris H, she said was at the finish line. So, Steve, you’re slipping — pun intended.

    Regarding Rob and other people’s comments on here that there’s always another motive behind marriages of people with large age differences, I take offense to that. I was 27 when I married my 48 year-old husband. I have no looks to speak of, so he certainly didn’t marry me for my looks. And he was poorer than I, so I most certainly didn’t marry him for his money. In fact, he didn’t know that I made a decent living — he thought I was poor and in debt after just graduating with from grad school. So, no, we really did marry for love. And we’ve been together now for 13 years.

  17. gigi1701

    July 9, 2013 at 9:15 PM

    Elisabeth82, I don’t know what your age is, but if your were in the 50 something range, Steve’s whole rant about women that age without even knowing them is a total pisser! How could you not see that as something potentially directed at yourself since it was directed at WOMEN of a particular age, not one woman specifically that he knows has to take Geritol and is menopausal?

    Rob22 is too young to know how the world works yet, come back in a few years with a new report.

    bnfan, that is a great story, many blessings on your relationship!

    As a female in my 20s, let me say if I knew my boyfriend made out with and/or slept with a woman my mother’s age, I would think twice about him. It’s literally fetish material. No 50 is not old, but when compared to someone who wasn’t even born when you graduated college, it’s revolting. Sorry cougars.

    Anyways, I never liked Brooks. Nor Drew. And Chris, though sweet, makes me want to stab my ear drums out with his repetitive poetry. I suppose I’m rooting for Zak for next Bachelor.

  19. Susan

    July 9, 2013 at 9:23 PM

    Wow, really bashing the 50 something women. Are you as appalled by men who marry women 30+ years younger, i.e., Micheal Douglas to name just one. I am 50 years old. I have zero desire to hook up with a 20 something, but the fact that it is so repulsive to you that you have to keep bringing it up is insulting.

    I read your blog, I enjoy your columns, but not this one.

  20. kjopo84

    July 9, 2013 at 9:35 PM

    Okay I am NOT ageist. I was only saying that a 25 year old making out with a woman twice his age is different than a 35 or 40 year old making out with a woman twice his age. Reverse the sexes and it would be the same. Really, no one here even blinks at Hugh Hefner dating a 20 something? There’s a LIMIT people. Once it gets past a certain point, it becomes strange, and yes you have to think there’s some agenda on both ends. So to reiterate, what Brooks did doesn’t even make me bat an eye. She’s an attractive 50 year old woman. But if she passed the point into ELDERLY and Brooks was like 35, that would be weird. That’s not ageism, it’s just NORMAL. And by the way, for all of you arguing the ageism thing: What about a 30 year old man or woman dating a 15 year old girl or boy? Suddenly age matters, right? It goes both ways, for the very young and quite old.

  21. kjopo84

    July 9, 2013 at 9:38 PM

    Man people are MEAN on here tonight. I don’t give a crap if you’re 30 or 40 or 50 or 60 or who you date. But I can still give my opinion on June-December relationships. Thanks.

  22. kjopo84

    July 9, 2013 at 9:41 PM

    Also, to me it has less to do with numerical age and more to do with stage of life. For example, I’m 29 and I would date a man up to early 40s if they were single. But if it’s a 57 year old man with three grown kids my age, retired and has had 2 strokes, no thank you. (and I base THIS on an ACTUAL inadvertent date I went on with a man once. I thought he was just welcoming me to a social group, and by the time I learned otherwise, I had heard his whole life story. And a retired dad of 3 kids my age who has had two strokes is not what I was going for.

    rob22 — One of the most intriguing issues pertaining to Harold and Maude is that there are numerous lessons to be learned from their love story — I chose one lesson to illustrate my point, and you chose another. As a 50+ woman partnered with a fellow my junior (and I can’t say after all this time if I even recall his age), as a woman for whom younger men have always been attracted (and it’s not for my beauty, I can assure you!), and as a woman enlightened enough to recognize the charm of fellows of all ages, it was simply a disappointment to have RS “dirtying his nest,” as a friend of mine commented today after reading his latest recap. By the responses I’ve read here, we are not alone.

    Having said all that, it’s awesome to live free and be able to comment with impunity, just as it’s RS’s right to unwittingly (or maybe not?) offend many of his readers.

  24. suzyq

    July 9, 2013 at 10:08 PM

    I’ve never commented, but feel compelled. I’m an over 50 female with 2 grown sons. Im not at all offended!!! RS is being funny! Humor, get it? It’s what he does! Yes, hooking up with the 51 year old is a bit mind boggling to me since he is 26, but its Brooks. The guy was likely looking for his mama., or daddy as the case may be. But anyway, RS was being funny, and the real point he was making was that its unlikely that Brooksie is serious about Dessie. Defensive much people?

  25. gigi1701

    July 9, 2013 at 10:09 PM

    For the record as a mid-fifties woman, I have no interest at all in 20 somethings. (besides being married, just saying if I was single) The offense was not so much about a younger guy with a cougar, but HOW women that are plus 50 were being talked about by Steve. It was sad to see such insults thrown an age group of women, just because Brooks is seen kissing and hugging one 51 year old woman doesn’t give him carte blanc to diss everyone in that age group with such nasty comments. Still love you Steve, but please, dial it down a notch, a lot of your readers are us 50+ year olds!

  26. 1tydjsw3

    July 9, 2013 at 11:59 PM

    It’s sad that you find 51 repulsive, I am not a Brooks crazies as you put it. It appears you you have you a high level of immaturity, you would date a 51 yr.old when you are 70. Are you kidding me. You sound like a sad whinny boy that has. No hope of growing up soon. There are a lot of people 50 + that did read and support your column. I sense a Paula Dean spirit in you. SO. SAD.

  27. jacjac

    July 10, 2013 at 4:29 AM

    Yikes. People need to calm down with their comments. If you’ve ever read RS site then you know that he is very sarcastic & rips on people for all kinds of things. He was specifically calling out Brooks for dating this lady. I don’t remember reading any line where he said “dating a 50+ person is the most vile, despicable & unthinkable act.” Yes, he joked about it a little incessantly but I don’t think he was really trying to attack an age group or anything of the sort.

  28. sunnyday25

    July 10, 2013 at 6:08 AM

    RS, it’s too bad that a guy as old as you is still single and apparently unable to attract the young women whom you lust after. It’s a shame that your only meaningful relationship is with your dog, and probably always will be, because you’re only going to get older, and the young women will be more revolted by the fact that you are old. After all, when a person ages, they become far less attractive and less desirable, especially to younger people. Also, as people get older, it gets harder to find a job, which is going to be a problem for you, RS, since reality shows are going to stop being popular and you have no other skills than being able to sit in front of a computer or a TV, and write about reality shows. Good luck, RS.

    I’d just like to point out that I am not a “Brooks fanatic.” I don’t get attached to reality TV stars, thank you. But your whole story about Brooks is super lame. Who cares if he made out with a 51 year woman on NYE? This is what the whole build up was about? Oh Steve, Steve, Steve.

  31. mainah

    July 10, 2013 at 7:51 AM

    I’ll bet most 51-year-old women could teach Brooks, RS and any other 20-something a few things about sex that would make their heads reel! And leave them wanting more!

  32. cheyenne70

    July 10, 2013 at 7:51 AM

    I think the article was funny. It reminded me of the film grown ups the Rob Schneider character. It a joke lighten up people really. I’m a 40 something yr old and can see the humor in it let it go.

    July 10, 2013 at 7:54 AM

    Yes, zelda, there is a wet driveway;)

    It’s been 22 hours since RS posted this column. I’m still laughing over it. I honestly don’t know which is funnier: the column or people’s ragging on Steve.

    Just remember folks this site says right at the top: “My slanted, sophomoric, and skewed view of the world of reality television.”

    I never thought people would get this riled up – I certainly didin’t and I just turned 46. Although I am married almost 20 years, I am a cougar at heart. And I don’t see where it says that just because the photos show Brooks kissing on this woman that they went out and had hot and steamy sex. It’s just pictures. (And I like ’em even younger than 26 – and no I don’t cheat.)

    Put Halle Barry on a shelf in 4 more years & Demi Moore better go stock up on Metamucil. You definitely wouldn’t touch them with a ten foot pole if you had the chance, right? What a hypocrite. If it was cheating it was wrong, but the woman was still attractive & looked like she had a fun personality. Maybe Brooks doesn’t always view everyone with ageist, sexist glasses. I may be 41 but I get hit on by younger men in my day to day life. Grow up & when you see that beauty can come in all shapes, sizes, colors and ages then maybe one day someone will see the beauty in you.

    People really need to calm the F down. You think Steve has crossed some line? Don’t read his column. It’s called free will. We all have it. He does what he does, and people who appreciate what he does will keep reading. Those who like his style don’t wanted a watered-down version of Steve because he’s given into pressure to make sure he doesn’t offend someone. In today’s world seems like someone is always offended by something. If you’re offended, go somewhere else.

    Keep doing your thing Steve.

    July 10, 2013 at 9:52 AM

    Okay peeps…to lighten the mood and absolutely no references to ole ladies, please read Jan Frase’s blog about this episode! Totally a laugh.

    Comment: the 3 ladies visiting Des was a total snooze fest. Waste of minutes. Jackie is a pretty girl, Lesley ehh, and Catherine still remains in the giddy, kiddie zone. Just a silly little girl who needs some maturity.

    Zak’s eyes are down right freaky! They open wide at totally inappropriate times and with those teeth, for sure he comes in handy as a glow in the dark!

    Poor Drew….gonna bring his little sister out in front of cameras and he thinks this will get him a pitty vote.

    Chris…besides the poems (enough…but I am sure the producers encouraged and probably wrote everyone)…still feel when Brooks dumps Des, she should revisit him as he seems the most interested in at least pursuing a relationship with her.

    And I won’t address Brooks and the lady. Enough pro and con has been said on that topic. I did find a lot of Steve’s blog to be funny and some not so much.

  40. vessel

    July 10, 2013 at 10:30 AM

    Comparing RS’s latest column to the Paula Deen thing? Ugh, really people? Way to be overly dramatic. I’m 46 and my husband is 36, not as big an age gap as the Brooks kiss thing, but I’ve taken some flak in the past when we started dating because I’m the woman, and yeah it’s a dumb double standard. But let’s not get quite so riled up over Steve making fun of something, anything, in what must be the most boring season of this show. Okay I admit I wished he didn’t slam the woman QUITE so much for her age, but it’s not THAT big of a deal. Anyway after reading some of these comments I think a lot of you are right-it was NY eve, probably drunk, in a bar, and people kiss randoms in those situations sometimes. I’m just surprised the girl didn’t sell those pics to a tabloid and make some $. Anyway maybe Steve inadvertently did a good thing here, better Desiree know all the information before she actually takes vows…not that it will ever come close to that!

  41. robrob

    July 10, 2013 at 10:35 AM

    Steve, hilarious, good stuff. Especially how Brook’s previous girlfriend was MUCH hotter than both Des and that FOSSIL.

    It’s also hilarious how offended people pretend to be. Who cares. Demi & Ashton was gross — what the hell was Ashton thinking?! Mila Kunis is a HUGE improvement.

    Sucking face with an old lady is just plain GROSS! If you’re a 50 year old lady, you should be looking for a 65 year old dude. Out.

    Wow, never seen so many new screen names in one column’s comments before. Way to stir up the pot Steve! j/j But really, i wonder how many new Word Press accounts have been set up since this column was posted lol. Haven’t had time to read through every single comment, but from what I’ve seen I’m in agreement with those of you who are acknowledging that Steve puts a disclaimer at the top of his site that his view is slanted, sophomoric, and skewed. Some of you are treating him as if he’s running for office. Can you honestly tell me that in your entire life, you’ve never cracked a joke about an age group? You’ve never laughed when Steve’s compared some of the guys on the show to 20-something frat guys?

    I’m not surprised at all that he went off about this so much, given how boring this season has been. Personally, I don’t think what Brooks did deserved THAT much attention. I also don’t think it was worth the build up and anticipation, but in Steve’s defense, at one point he DID say that what he had for us on Brooks wasn’t earth shattering.

    oops. what’s funny about this whole conversation is that people don’t seem to have in mind what a slimy dude steve is. i’m just remembering back to when he was asking readers to donate to his legal defense, insisting that he had done nothing wrong, only to eventually admit that he had actually attempted to pay contestants to violate their contracts. so, what do you expect from this guy? there used to be someone named diane around here whose mission was to defend steve against any and all criticism. it was kind of hilarious, as, while he provides a bit of entertainment (tougher & tougher, as this show has become more & more intolerably boring) he is due a certain amount of criticism. but even his most ardent defender seems to have jumped ship. on the other hand, it’s refreshing to see an intelligent, socially conscious discussion on this page. who would have thought?

    oh, and the reality for many people these days is that 50 is the new 30, and 25 is the new 15…

    Seriously … OLD PEOPLE are so defensive! ha ha ha get over it people – who cares if Steve thinks 50 is old? To some it is… to others not a big deal. In my opinion (20 something)…. 50 is OLD, very very old. peace out.

    Thanks for your thoughts Mike Fleiss…. errrrr…. I mean @blahlalalala. Nobody but you cares how he gets his spoilers & nobody else cares if he pays your….. errr Mike Fleiss’….. employees to get them. It’s called the cost of doing business. YOU may not like it, but we couldn’t care less. We also don’t care if he creates a defense fund. We can contribute, or not, depending on how we feel about RS. My guess is that he didn’t raise a ton of money. Here’s an idea though Mike…. errrrr…..@blahlalalala, put together an interesting show that gets people interested in watching again. Start by banning the word “amazing” from being used ever again on the show….. and ixnay on the gay guys next time.

    I don’t think 51 is that old and I am in my twenties. “Old” for me is late sixties, however, there is nothing wrong with being old. In fact, it really just means you have survived this long! And there is nothing wrong with menopause, my gosh, I look forward to the day I don’t have a period. haha However, I do think a 25 year age gap is huge and disgusting either way. It just seems wrong. If you could be your significant other’s child, well, that’s really weird. Show maturity and stick with people in your own ten year age span.
    Looks like she was a good looking woman though and he was drunk, doesn’t necessarily mean that he is one of those guys that prefers women older than himself.
    However, shame on him for cheating on his ex. He is definitely not a great guy, run Des!

    Mila Kunis? Have you seen her w/o makeup? She’s like all ‘famous’ people–in need of a ton of tricks of the trade.

    I love how within an hour of Steve’s post Brooks’ ex girlfriend Jennifer made her Facebook pictures private. Some of the comments people made about Brooks on her page were interesting. In any case I feel sorry for Desiree, a little, because that girl is HOT. That he dated her would bug me way more than some drunken make out session with a 51 year old.
