    Where last we left him, Rick was sitting beside a smoldering fire watching footage of his girlfriend of four years getting slammed by a man she’s known for four days. So what I’m saying here is that no matter how bad your week has been, Rick’s has probably been worse. But as he watches KB and Ashley writhe around under the covers, he holds it together like a champ. He does not cry. He does not scream. He does not fall to his knees to begin gathering blades of grass and small rocks and twigs that he can fashion into an Ashley voodoo doll. Instead, he informs Mark he’s not sure his relationship can recover from this, and my presumption is that any clinically normal viewer would agree with him.

    “What she expected of me, she did. My heart is broken,” Rick admits. He’s calm, but maybe he’s still in shock. It’s not Rick’s behavior, however, that’s confusing me here; it’s Ashley’s. First she huddles beneath a blanket back at the villa. The retreating … Continue reading

    Podcast #153 – Interview with Taylor Nolan and “Temptation Island’s” Ashley Goldson & (EXCLUSIVE) Peter’s Final Four


    Earlier this week Taylor Nolan announced on her podcast that she had broken up with her boyfriend of over a year, so I figured lets bring her on to talk about it and reports that suggested she may be open to a reconciliation with Derek. She sets the record straight on that along with other things on Podcast #153 today. And just as a heads up, this podcast takes a very sexual turn when we begin talking about Taylor becoming a licensed sex therapist. Topics of masturbation, threesomes, vibrators all are fair game this week, so in case your virgin ears don’t want to hear talk like that, just know you’ve been warned. Can’t say I’ve spoken to many 26 year olds who are as sexually open as Taylor is. Then again, can’t say I even speak to many 26 year olds in general, so maybe they’re all like this now. But wow, Taylor sure has no problem sharing a lot of her personal life today and I really appreciate that. Always refreshing to hear … Continue reading

    Yes, Temptation Island is a show centered around the absolutely batsh*t premise that couples are supposed to swan dive into experiences in which their fidelity is tested over and over and over again. True, the participants are forced to keep up with the shenanigans of their significant others via carefully spliced pieces of footage that are presented without context while they sit anxiously beside a bonfire. Sure, not having the full story about what’s really going down, nor the ability to speak to the person you love during the process, is nothing but a finely orchestrated mindf*ck. And of course a part of me believes you’d have to be, at the very least, flirting with clinical insanity to so much as even entertain the idea of applying to be on this program. But there is one positive thing: the people on this show take care of one another. Though she’s miserable after having to say goodbye to her boyfriend, Kate is there to pat Ashley H.’s head as Ashley bawls her eyes out. Esonica crawls … Continue reading
