    “Reader Emails,” BIP & “Bachelor” Talk

    One thing that I know I constantly harp on about this show and its contestants is that so many of them love the perks that come with the show (i.e. – the travel, the shilling, the appearances, the social media adoration) but very few seem to be able to handle the criticism. That manifested itself earlier this week when Colton just decided to go scorched earth on Twitter Monday night during the show. Very bizarre. Very defensive in everything negative thrown his way, and this is where these people seem to miss the difference between criticism and hate. If you’re getting death threats, being bullied, etc that’s wrong. We’ve been over that 100 times. But if people are just giving their opinions on social media of what they’re showing on TV and you immediately begin jumping down their throat and responding passive aggressively, it’s obvious you’re having a hard time with it. It’s why I tell anyone who asks me if they should go on the show, no, … Continue reading

    We’re getting down to the wire of things here on the “Bachelorette,” which means that I fully want to prepare you for the barrage of tabloid stories that are sure to come out. I don’t know what they’re going to say, but almost all will be fabricated stories that are designed to be click bait. I ask that you actually read the stories first, then go back and look at the title and say to yourself, “Did the story really follow through on what the title said?” 95% of them won’t. That’s just the way that business works. I think there already was one of Becca on the cover of one of the mags and the caption read “Dumped Again!” Well, she hasn’t been dumped and she’s still engaged, so that’s the kinda thing I’m talking about. I didn’t read the story, but I’m venturing to guess that the story alludes to maybe it’ll happen at some point. Kind of a major jump from “Dumped Again!” to “Well…maybe…sorta…we’re … Continue reading

    “Reader Emails,” Tabloids, & the Social Media Hate Continues

    Yesterday sure was a fun day. The trolls came out in full force on Tia. She’d been off social media for about a week because she knew what was coming on Monday’s episode, and it was probably a good idea. Not to mention, the timing of what happened yesterday, just hours after I’d posted about why people have to spew so much hate towards contestants is mind boggling. Apparently a few people didn’t get that message. Of course you’re allowed to question Tia’s actions on the show, why she came back, why she couldn’t let Colton go, is she being a good friend to Becca by confronting her with that right before the rose ceremony – all totally valid points. Hell, I said the exact thing in yesterday’s column because I had those questions myself. You go on this show, you open yourself up to criticism. And it happens from everywhere. I criticize a lot of people on this show for their actions. But never in a million … Continue reading
