A programming note to start everyone off with this week. The “Women Tell All” tapes next Friday, February 21st and airs on Monday, March 3rd. No different than they’ve done in the past seasons except for one thing that’s a little different. Because they are showing the Hometown Date and Overnight Date episodes back-to-back on Monday & Tuesday Feb. 24th & 25th, that means that the audience in attendance at the WTA taping will have to watch BOTH episodes before they bring the women out to discuss what happens. If they didn’t, the audience wouldn’t know why Renee and Andi were sitting there. So before the questions start coming in about how that all works, and how could Renee and Andi be at the taping when their final episodes haven’t even aired yet, it’s because they show them to the audience beforehand. Usually, they’ve just had to watch one episode, but now they’re stuck watching two, which’ll make that taping even longer than it usually is, which is around 6-8 hours. Have fun with that people. Should be a blast. I’d venture to guess that Andi, Renee, and Lucy will definitely be called up to the hot seat. Maybe Kelly? Can’t really think of anyone else. Then again, they brought up Juan Pablo last season and no one knew why at the time.
Did you see that the “Lifetime” channel has ordered a 10 episode scripted series called “Un-Real?” Check out their description of it:
“The show will follow a young staffer (Appleby) working on a hit dating competition show whose sole job is to manipulate relationships with contestants to get the dramatic footage the program’s executive producer (Price) wants. Stroma will play the dating show’s eligible bachelor, Adam.”
So basically they are going to show what it’s like behind-the-scenes at the “Bachelor.” Awesome. I can’t remember seeing anything on “Lifetime” that didn’t have to do with a teenage murder, or pregnancy, or star Jennifer Love Hewitt. I think I might have to catch this one.
I’m sure you’ve seen it by now, but if you haven’t, here is Clare’s conference call with the media from last week. We’ve been over this numerous times, so I’ll let her answers speak for themselves. If your take on it is, “Well of course she’s gonna deny it,” then you’re still living with your head buried in the sand. And does this really sound like someone he ends up with in the end? Ummmm, she’s still pissed 3 months after the fact.
Hey, anyone interested in Sean & Catherine’s honeymoon photos? They’re out. Man, can’t a couple get a little privacy on their honeymoon? Apparently not when there’s money to be made. And thanks for the update on how the sex was. Really needed to know.
Juan Pablo appeared on “Good Morning America” yesterday, his first interview since making the gay comments, and basically, he said nothing to put out that fire. Is he serious? After all this time, he’s STILL going to the “I have gay friends” card? Embarrassing. And what does his cousin being a nun have to do with anything? You can tell before the interview, Peter Geist said to him, “Ok, don’t f**k this up. Just whatever you do, try and throw the word ‘respect’ in there as many times as possible. It’ll look great.” Ummmm, no. He was asked two questions about what he said, and he answered neither. Just went off on a tangent then brought it back to key words and phrases he was told to memorize.
Oh yes, and of course how could I forget to mention the Radar Online story saying that he sent a dong shot to the girl he chose, and she’s been passing it along to friends. Look, there isn’t a person in America that wants this story to be true more than I do, but trust me, it’s bogus. Radar Online got duped and that’s all I’ll say about it. Didn’t happen.
Ratings are out for last night’s episode and it dropped from last week’s 8.2 million viewers to 7.8 million. But the bigger drop was in the 18-49 demo that went from a 2.6 last week to a 2.3 this week. With all that said, every episode has outdrawn any of Sean’s first 6 episodes, as head scratching as that may be. I’m guessing it’ll trend up from here on out.
Last night’s deleted scenes are in, and once again, Kat is the Queen of the Deleted Scene. We get to see more time she didn’t have with him, then in another scene, we get Renee and Clare on opposite ends of who’s staying between Kat and Chelsie. Also, Andi and Juan Pablo with a very deep conversation. Oh wait, I meant just kissing. And then finally Nikki giving Andi her thoughts on her biggest nemesis, Clare.
