    The Bachelorette Recap – 6/23/08

    -I don’t think I’ve ever given a “shout out” in this column, nor do I ever think I’ve acknowledged the death of anybody – until today. In case you haven’t heard, legendary comedian George Carlin died Sunday night in Santa Monica. I think it’s safe to say that I wouldn’t be writing this column, I wouldn’t love watching stand-up comedy, and I wouldn’t be half as funny as I think I am if it weren’t for George Carlin. Outside of “Bill Cosby Himself”, every George Carlin HBO special was must-see TV for me growing up. I taped every single one of them, watched them over and over and over again after school, and can still probably recite most of them if I sat down and watched them. He was a comedic genius back in the day, and for a while I wanted to be a stand-up comedian – all because of George Carlin. He got a little preachy and outdated towards his later years, but his early stuff was genius. “Baseball vs. Football”, “Flying on … Continue reading

    The Bachelorette Recap – 6/16/08

    -Much shorter column this week. Thank God. There’s really no reason to do a full recap of the “DeAnna Tells All” episode considering she didn’t really tell us much that we already didn’t know. And I’m still trying to figure out why for the first time in 16 seasons they even decided to do a show where the “Bachelor/Bachelorette” handicaps the final six. Especially this season where it was pretty obvious which four she was keeping. If you looked at any spoilers in the past month, you knew that Jason, Jeremy, Jesse, and Graham were the final four. Hell, even if you didn’t, if you watched the previews for the rest of the season, they showed her on hometown dates and overnight dates with those four. The only clips you saw of Sean and Twilley were from last nights episode. So here are just a few quick thoughts from what I remember about the “Tell All” episode. I never wrote anything down so this is all coming off what I can remember. I’m guessing there’ll … Continue reading

    The Bachelorette Recap – 6/9/08

    -Let’s get to the matter most of you want to know about, and that’s the Chelsea interview. In case you didn’t check back last week, on Thursday I put up a post saying that interview was killed by lawyers who got involved and basically told Chelsea not do it, for fear of any breach of contract I assume. Some of you are blaming me for promoting the interview in last weeks column, and that’s what drew attention to it. Maybe so, but realistically, it would’ve been killed anyway and been taken down within seconds of going up. Here’s what went down: Chelsea and I spoke May 28th over the phone for a good 45 minutes discussing her coming on and doing a recorded interview for the site. She was all for it, said it wouldn’t be an issue, and told me she would hold absolutely nothing back. The problem was, I was in L.A. at the time and had no way to record it until I got back to Dallas and could get in a … Continue reading
