    A very fun, and sometimes serious 90 minute conversation with Ashley Spivey this week. She’s someone to definitely follow on Twitter on Monday nights for some good humorous and insightful takes on the “Bachelor.” We had Ashley on last May in between Nick and Rachel’s season, so I wanted to bring her back on this season because she gives good insight to some of the things that maybe the average fan doesn’t she. She has some really interesting thoughts on Krystal, Bibiana, and Chelsea among others. We also spend a good 15 minutes diving into a Twitter beef she got into online with James Taylor recently which then spawned a discussion about the #MeToo movement which Ashley unfortunately is a part of. I really appreciate her opening up somewhat about the ramifications that the assault she went through had on her. A must listen if you ask me. As always, if you want to respond to the interview, please include Ashley’s Twitter handle (@AshleySpivey) in your replies so she can see them as … Continue reading

    Here’s Arie’s blog now up at People.com where he talks about his dates with each girl along with the drama in the house. Then again, the lead never knows what’s really going on in the house or what the girls are saying in ITM’s because it’s not shown to them. He doesn’t see that til way after the fact, hence the reason he’s defending Krystal in his column. I think judging by his date with Krystal he knew he preferred Becca’s date over her and essentially is just trying not to make Krystal feel bad after the fact. We see this a lot of the time with the lead so I don’t think he’s doing anything out of the ordinary. But you could tell from just watching who he had a better date with. Maybe he didn’t want to catch mono from Krystal or whatever the hell she had for 3 weeks during filming that made it sound like she gargled razor blades every morning. I really am glad to know that’s … Continue reading

    I think this was the 5th or 6th year in a row where the “Bachelor’s” second episode went up against the college football national championship game. It’s one I dread every year, but since I don’t get the episodes early, there’s nothing I can do. Thank god the Georgia/Bama first half was awful and I didn’t really miss much. Once the “Bachelor” ended, the second half was just beginning so that’s all I needed. I say it time and time again, but sports are the best reality show on television. So many ups and downs and twists and turns to last night’s game. Awesome. Felt bad for Georgia since it sucks to lose a game you were never trailing in until the last play. Gut punch to say the least. But they’ll be back, they’re very good and have the #1 recruiting class in the nation. I don’t think this was a once-every-30-years appearance for them. As for Bama, the beat goes on. Bench your starter who’s 24-2 in 2 years, got you to back-to-back … Continue reading
