    Podcast #79 – Interview with Former “Bachelorette” Meredith Phillips


    Podcast #79 is finally upon us and it’s a very open and candid interview with “Bachelorette” #2, Meredith Phillips. In this podcast, Meredith reveals for the first time a story of alleged sexual abuse that happened to her while she was the Bachelorette. You will hear once she tells me this I’m pretty stunned by the story hence the awkward silence and long pauses, etc. She did not reveal the name of the alleged perpetrator, so there really is no way for me to confirm the details. But as with any story where we are hearing only one side, I would encourage everyone to keep an open mind until all sides of the story are told, if they ever are. That said, I am glad Meredith was able to share her story because I’m sure that wasn’t easy. Along with telling this story, Meredith also opens up about her battle with alcoholism which you can see below became national news in 2013. There are some truth bombs she drops during that portion of the interview … Continue reading

    (SPOILER): Episode 1 Spoilers, Becca’s Engaged, and This Week’s Podcast


    Less than a week away from the premiere and things are beginning to ramp up. Most notably, Becca went on GMA this morning and revealed that she is engaged. That shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone considering that’s now 20 of the last 21 seasons that ended in an engagement. The fact that she did reveal it before the season could be kinda surprising, but it’s not unprecedented either. It’s definitely happened a few times before. I know Jason Mesnick did it. Brad 2.0 did it. Rachel did it last season. And I know there were others who were allowed to say they were engaged before the season even began as well. So that’s not all that weird that she was able to reveal it already. The big question now becomes, “Well Reality Steve, who is she engaged to?” Good question. Never thought you’d ask. Unless you’re my email inbox or twitter mentions where it’s happening every, oh I don’t know, 5 seconds or so. Hey, it’s part of the job. I … Continue reading

    “Ex on the Beach” – Nell Kalter’s Episode 5 Recap

    I recently read a story about a woman who was arrested after sending 65,000 text messages to a man with whom she’d gone on a single date. Wrapped in a noose-like psychosis, she would send around 500 texts a day to this guy. A few of the texts were probably sweet, you know, in a deranged sort of way, but others included lines about how she wanted to bathe in his blood. When she was finally tossed in jail for stalking, she happily gave interviews where she spoke of her deep love for a person she’d spent one evening with and then she widened her scope of conversation to blather about the Illuminati. Some reporters deigned to inquire about why she broke into that guy’s house and then proceeded to take a bubble bath, but those were questions she didn’t really care to answer.

    As for my reactions to this horrifying urban-legend-come-true, they were as follows:

    1. I once sent four texts to someone without receiving a response. In my defense, text number one … Continue reading
