    Podcast #141 – Thoughts on the “Bachelorette” Finale, Hannah & Tyler Moving Forward, & a Chat with Haley Stevens, Jed’s Ex-Girlfriend


    A lot of stuff yesterday that I thought about after I posted the column, or was at least able to give more thought to, so I start off today’s podcast with thoughts on that. Hannah & Tyler, Jed’s friends, and how much different the show is now and it’s not changing. I think there’s a few things now that will be part of the norm of this show going forward that we’ve just never seen before. Every season I feel like we say “this is a first in show history,” and without knowing what it will be, I can guarantee you they’ll be another “first” next season. Happens every season now. There’s a reason why there are story editors on this show. We’ll get something next season. Just know it’s coming. Then Haley Stevens, Jed’s ex-girlfriend, joins me again for a brief chat about what life’s been like since she told her story and how it feels to unfortunately be the reason Hannah and Jed’s engagement ended. Much … Continue reading

    The “Bachelorette” Hannah – Finale Part 1 Recap, Tonight’s Doozy, & the Return of the “He Said, She Said” Podcast with Ashley Spivey

    We all know the main attraction is tonight and nothing you saw last night should’ve been the least bit surprising. First up was the Peter breakup along with him on the couch still sad by the breakup as his family watched on. Kinda weird for the final 3’s family to be sitting in the audience, however, they all live close to the studio in LA, so that could’ve had something to do with it. If Peter was from, say, any other state than CA, I’m guessing they wouldn’t have been flown in. But they’re local, so I guess that helped in that decision to have them there. Of course, once Peter had his couple segments on the stage the predictable chatter began of, “Oh, well that was totally his Bachelor audition. It’s obvious it’s him.” Wait, I thought last week was Mike’s Bachelor audition and it was obvious it was him? Same thing, different season. The newest dumpee is the one that people claim will be the new … Continue reading

    Podcast #140 – A Talk About Domestic Violence


    Gonna do something a little different with this week’s podcast. In light of the recent domestic dispute involving “Bachelor” creator Mike Fleiss, I thought we’d have a discussion about domestic violence in relationships. After Fleiss’ incident, you may have read Ashley Spivey’s reaction on Twitter, and if you haven’t, you should. Ashley suffered from domestic violence in a previous relationship and this incident triggered her. When I originally tweeted out the Fleiss story, you can see in the mentions how many women felt for Laura, Fleiss’ ex-wife and say the texts she sent to him that he released were a signal for help and someone involved in an abusive relationship. Shortly after that story broke, I received an email from someone named Mandy in Philadelphia who wanted to come on and share her story. Initially she was just gonna be on next Tuesday’s “He Said, She Said” podcast, but, the call was so good and so moving, that I thought I’d make it the focus of today’s podcast. … Continue reading
