Filming on the “Bachelor” wrapped yesterday. I’m pretty sure I know how it played out, but obviously I would like to get it confirmed by more sources. After last season, you can never be too careful so that’s what I plan to do. Granted, there will still be doubters and that’s fine. But I’d like to try something a little different when I go about getting my info for the end this season. As for yesterday’s teasers, man, once again we had a lot of people guessing on what some of the answers were, and out of all the guesses, one person got one answer right. You’ll have all your answers soon enough, so I’m not going to tell people which answers are right and which are wrong, but the most popular guess yesterday was that the twins, Emily and Haley, were the ones on the 2-on-1 date this season. They weren’t. So back to the drawing board for everyone who guessed that. It’s not surprising that there’s a correlation between how little is spoiled on social media and how little people know about this season. Just means a lot of you will be surprised when I roll out the episode-by-episode spoilers. There are definitely things this season that people will not have suspected based on emails and tweets I’ve received since filming began Sept. 24th.
-Another blindside on “Survivor” again last night as it seems to be happening on a weekly basis now. Jeff Probst does his weekly interview with EW.com where he talks about the new voting strategies, Fishbach’s advantage in the game, and the weather in Cambodia during last night’s episode. Fishbach’s People.com blog used to be up first thing Thursday morning, and now it isn’t. Guess we’ll just have to wait til tomorrow.
-In case you missed it, Savage in his post exit interview last week took back a lot of what he said on the show. There was a lot of hatred being thrown Savage’s way as even a hastag of #FUAS (F— You Andrew Savage) was started. Did I miss something? Was he really that bad? Sure, he said things on that show that were questionable, but I think everyone has at some point. His answer makes sense. That show, like most reality shows when you’re in this bubble isolated from the outside world, makes you say and do things you normally wouldn’t do.
-Shawn Johnson recently opened up about eating disorders she had in the past. Even though she didn’t name them by name, we pretty much have a good idea what she’s referring to, right? Didn’t realize she’d gone through that. Then again, I’m sure she’s not the first celebrity nor the last who has. Good for her for speaking out about it.
-Khloe Kardashian went on a Twitter rant yesterday because, well, that’s always a smart thing to do. It’s one thing to rant if you just wanna get stuff off your chest (I’ve felt like doing it many times but have held back), but when you start responding to idiot trolls and calling them names? Well yeah, then you look like a complete idiot. She can blame on the medication she’s taking for her staph infection all she wants. She knew what she was doing then realized how stupid it was after the fact. There’s only rule to live by in the Twitter world: Never engage a back and forth with a troll. It’s pointless and you’ll never win. Oh sure, your argument may be 100x better than theirs, but that’s not the point. The fact they baited you to respond to something so stupid means they won. That’s all they’re trying to do.
-Kate Walsh says she’s started early menopause and won’t be having any kids. Ummmm, thanks? Then again, Kate is almost 50. Were we expecting her to? I mean, I know it’s possible, but definitely a higher health risk at that age. My guess is we’ll see her adopt in the near future. Dr. Addison will not go childless her whole life.
-And speaking of “Private Practice,” looks like there’s gonna be a mini reunion coming up. No, not for the show, but a lot of the cast is gathering overseas for a wedding. You know what’s funny? Of all of Shonda Rhimes popular shows, “Private Practice” was the only one I’ve ever seen. Don’t watch “Scandal,” “Grey’s, or “HTGAWM,” but saw every episode of “Private Practice.” A very underrated show if you ask me.
-This is somewhat surprising because of its longevity, but also somewhat not. The “Soup” is being cancelled after its latest 12 year run with Joel McHale as host. Surprising in that it’s a popular show, but not surprising in that in today’s day and age, by the time that show airs Friday night, we’ve basically seen a lot of their clips by then. Not to mention Joel’s star is rising in Hollywood, and did he really need to film a ½ live show every Friday night still? He outgrew it and I’m sure they figured if Joel’s not hosting, we don’t want to continue.
-Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt had sex. In an upcoming movie, that she says was very awkward. Yeah, I can imagine that could be awkward to have sex on camera, even though they’re not really having it. I mean, the “Bachelor Pad” couples didn’t seem to mind it and they were actually having the real thing. All you two are doing is getting naked and dry humping each other pretending to like it.
-T Swift and Calvin Harris went on a double date Tuesday night in Beverly Hills. And no, it wasn’t with one of her famous Squad friends. This time it was with Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and boyfriend Jason Statham. Ummmmm, ok. Just further proof that basically Taylor is friends with everyone in Hollywood, and if you’re not, you’re basically a loner and might as well just sit over in the corner by yourself.
-The first promo for “Marriage Boot Camp” season 4 is now out as we get our first look at Sean and Catherine in action. Granted, much of this promo centers around Mama June and her boy toy and pretty much all the other couples, but we get a few glimpses of Sean and Catherine “arguing” a shot of Catherine crying. However, I’m sure that they will absolutely be the least volatile couple on this show by a landslide.
-I think we’re going to get Charlie Sheen stories every day for the next month regarding his HIV status. Yesterday alone there were like 7 different stories circulating regarding it, including this one which showsproof of the hush money he paid out. There are so many more on RadarOnline.com, it’s hard to keep track. Who did he tell, when did he tell them, did he use condoms, on and on and on it goes. Basically this will never end and Charlie seems like he’s in for legal battles forever and ever.
-Oreo churros are now a thing. A churro with an oreo coating, but now they’ve mixed in a cream filled center. Since Oreo’s are probably the most overrated cookie in the history of cookies, this sounds about as appetizing as downing a glass of Drano. Sorry. Not a fan. My question is, how long will these Oreos stay stuck in your teeth compared the cookie? An extra 24 hours?
-And finally, Alabama has a bye week this weekend in college football. Well, a bye week by their standards considering they are playing FCS Charleston Southern. But don’t tell that to Nick Saban. He’s totally going with the reverse psychology here and making you think his team can get beat by them. Shut up, Nick. You’re not losing Saturday.
