The Bachelor 14 - Jake

The Bachelor Recap – 2/22/10 “The Women All Lie”

For those that are friends of mine on Facebook, or follow me on Twitter, you saw that yesterday I made mention of some huge news regarding the “After the Final Rose” show coming this week. Yes, I said “this week”, not today. There’s a reason for that. Because I gave an exclusive interview to “In Touch” magazine regarding what happened at the “ATFR” taping this past Sunday, and I’m not allowed to post it on the site until 12:01am EST later on tonight. So you’re gonna have to wait a few hours. But, for the latest on what the final conclusion is to the “ATFR” show (which will be shown immediately after the 2 hr. finale next Monday night), come back here to the site tonight at 12:01am EST, or pick up this weeks copy of “In Touch” magazine.

This column is usually a little bit different than the others since it’s not as much a detailed account of what happened on the episode last night, but more of jumping around to all my different thoughts. The “Women Tell All” is usually a lot of fluff, repeating scenes and conversations we’ve already seen and stuff I’ve already commented on in previous columns. The Rozlyn stuff was just downright ridiculous. More on that later. I gotta say, I never thought the Jason/Molly/Melissa scandal would ever be topped in the tabloids when it comes to this show, but man, this season might have overtaken it. Jake, and Vienna’s past, and Ali’s work situation – it’s been gossip magazine fodder for a solid month straight. And there really is no scandal to report this season, yet, they cannot stop writing about each of these girls and their pasts.

With that said, I don’t blame the tabloid magazines one bit. That’s what they do. It’s how they stay in business. Does it make it right? Probably not. But this is 2010. It’s just the way the media is nowadays, and you have to live with it. We’re living in a “need to know now” world. Everyone wants an instant reaction to everything that’s happening every minute. If you go on a reality show, people are going to dig into your past. And you know what? They might even make stuff up. If you don’t want that out there, then don’t sign up for the show. Period. End of story. What happened to Rozlyn was unfortunate, but, if she doesn’t go on the show, it doesn’t happen. Same for Vienna. And Gia. And Ali. The list goes on. All I’m here to do is to let you know when I feel the show has crossed the line. The media? You’ll never hear me say much about what the tabloids say because it’s what they do. TMZ is in business because there’s a market for it. Sometimes gossip mags are right and break a story (Tiger’s voicemail to his mistress, LeAnn Rimes cheating on her husband, “In Touch” tomorrow…ha ha), and sometimes they’re wrong (the 100 times I’ve read Brad and Angelina are broken up). You take the good with the bad. However, for ABC to claim “we’re just a reality show and we let the cameras roll and what you see is real” is a completely different story. The emotions are “kinda” real. Very much exaggerated and heightened due to the situation they’re in, but, everything else is pretty much mapped out. So if I hear something where what we were shown is not what really happened, then I will report it and you can make your own decision from there.

I’m sure there are plenty of times in the past where I’ve commented on something without knowing the real story behind how it was said or how it was presented on camera. I’m fine with that. I don’t know everything. And there have been plenty of times where I’ve known more to a story than what’s going on, but for privacy reasons, I’ve chosen not to share it in my blog. Trust me on that one. There’s some stuff that’d blow your mind I cannot tell you about. When it comes to “Who is the final one”, or, “Who is in the final four”, or “What happens on this episode”, that’s basic stuff. If I know it, I’ll tell it. But not all behind-the-scenes stuff am I at liberty to share. I just don’t want to break the trust I’ve built with my sources.

I do my best to distinguish what should get out there, and what shouldn’t. Have I screwed up at times? Without a doubt. Probably will happen again at some point too. What you see is what you get with me. If it’s speculation, I’ll tell you it’s speculation. If it’s fact direct from a source, I’ll tell you that as well. If it’s rumor, I’ll tell you it’s a rumor then usually try to show you how that rumor isn’t possible (like the rumor of re-shooting the ending to this season. One of the stupidest things I’ve heard). I enjoy writing this column, I really do. Sometimes it gets taxing getting asked questions I’ve already answered a 1,000 times, or ones that I’ve explained in my column already, but remember, it’s all fun and games in the end. It’s a TV show. I’ve never taken this show or myself seriously, which is why I’ve made fun of it for the last eight years and will continue to do so. All I try to do is clear the air on perception vs. reality whenever I get information from sources.

I thought that Ali and Gia’s post show exit interviews were quite interesting. You can read Ali’s here, and Gia’s here, courtesy of Film.com. I think the most interesting things that Ali said (and we saw her repeat it last night), was the connection Jake had with Vienna. On the show you see Ali flabbergasted he’s keeping Vienna around, even to the point of whining about it. However, Ali was only basing that off her interaction with Vienna. She admits she never saw any connection with them until actually watching the show like the rest of us. For Ali to admit she could actually see Jake and Vienna having a long-lasting relationship, well, I’d say that’s a pretty big deal. Especially coming from Vienna’s biggest critic in the house. At least Ali was woman enough to admit, “You know what? I probably jumped the gun a bit on her. Sure, she speaks her mind without thinking and her and I are different in that aspect, but that had nothing to do with her and Jake.” Plus, the fact that Ali apologized to Vienna last night on TV was also pretty big of her. I thought Ali handled herself really well last night and toned down her bitchiness towards Vienna. Regardless of her being the next “Bachelorette”, she didn’t have to do that. But she did. Now, does she honestly think Jake and Vienna could have a long lasting relationship? Probably not. No one thinks that.

I think Gia saying that she really liked Vienna and would want to keep in touch with her speaks volumes. I mean, we’ll see if that’s really the case, but Gia even admitting to wanting to have anything to do with Vienna once the show is over is impressive. I think both girls realized, in a heightened situation, where your sole focus for 5-6 weeks is on this one man, mixed in with all the alcohol flowing in the house and the fact that it’s a competition, probably led to a lot of disagreements and arguments that probably wouldn’t have happened under normal dating circumstances. I relate this to “Survivor” where you see two tribemates not get along, bitch at each other, say hurtful things, then by the time the reunion show rolls around, they’re fine with each other and always say the same thing, “Hey, we’re just playing a game.” Stephanie even said in her post show interview last week that James has already told her “no hard feelings”, even though he acted like a complete ass last week. Same difference on this show. In the heat of “battle” or “competition”, of course you’re gonna say things you might normally not say, or even really mean. But with cameras and alcohol all around, you ramp up the drama. Ali could’ve stuck with, “Vienna is a total bitch and I do not like her” on last night’s show, but she didn’t. She apologized for her calling her out after the 1-on-1 date, and she even said in the interview she feels bad for the media attacking Vienna and that she’s a good person. Not everyone hates everyone on this show, despite what they want you to believe.

    What an amateur-hour hatchet job. The only two stories with “inappropriate” specifics have no credibility due to the “witnesses'” previous statements. Plus, no video. Finally, Ella and Chris diverted attention from Roz’s legitimate explanation for not defending herself initially – that the producer helped her make a contract-breaching phone call, getting the “inappropriate” ball rolling.

    None of this means ABC’s story is false, but serious doubt is cast on it. It’s too bad that Roz did not handle herself well in the aired version of the interview.

    Looking forward to your interview RS. I hope you don’t pat yourself on the back for “predicting” the New Zealand comment. That little gem crashed and burned.

    Well, there’s one bet that we could all win – the fact that Chris Harrison would NEVER agree to be interviewed by Reality Steve!
    There’s just no way his ‘handlers’ would allow that. He wouldn’t be able to spin out of Steve’s questions.

    As for Rozlyn and her interview on WTA episode Feb 22/10; I somewhat agree with CarrytheO in that she did not seem to handle herself well. To me, she didn’t seem to be fully forthcoming with all of her answers.

    I understand that most people would have fallen apart much quicker than what Roz did when met with a hostile host and a skeptical crowd. It is very difficult to maintain poise when put on the spot -especially since it revolves around a entertainment scandal that is forefront in the tabloids right nw. So I do have to say that she was poised in terms of broad strokes of the inteview; but it seemed to me that it was almost as if she had more to say to explain herself. She could have possibly clarified her position better – but held back.

    Good luck with obtaining that CH interview Steve.

    Look forward to hearing your interview with InTouch.

    @CarrytheO: what’s the “New Zealand” comment? Did I miss something?

    YES! Roz interview, and some news tonight about the ATFR, can’t wait. Corrie is the only follower Roz has on Twitter and I did Twit @chrisbharrison letting him know. Thank god we have you Steve!!

    Ah Steve, as usual, right on the money. The only reason Rozlyn was a scandal is because Chris and ABC wouldn’t let it go. I’d forgotten her as soon as she left, there were so many more train wrecks going on. I say they should have given Ashley way more booze, but she was gone way too soon.

    Anyway, I watched for all of five minutes due to rapidly rising nauseous feelings, but did see Jessie and Ella and their BS stories, as well as Valesha (SP? who cares?) decide that she didn’t believe Rozlyn anymore. Boo. Anyone who thinks Ella should be the next B’ette needs medication.

    And good on ya for calling out that pompous ass Chris! What was with the speech?? I hope you’ll be a better person after all this? I would have spit on him!!! What gall!!!

    As for Bachelor Pad, good grief. Who needs to see that? Dirty. Put it on a porn channel where it belongs. Then I’ll watch.

    The way I see it is Roz IS a flirt, just listen to the Seacrest interview where she clearly flirted with Ryan Seacrest and apparently Ryan (producer) is too, I’ve known girls like that they think it’s totally normal behavior, the real reason she got booted was because of the phone call she made to her son/card sent by Ryan without having signed the release form. But they made it seem like it was this huge sexual physical realtionship. Chris knows there was no actual sex. It’s the way they’re using her to make the dumb audience (and I mean DUMB look at the people in the audience in WTA and how their jaw dropped at anything that was thrown down their throats). It’s how gullible people are that pisses me off. And I’m willing to bet Chris’s wife did not laugh when she heard that comment, Chris just looks like a scumbag, the type that would kiss people’s ass to get up the ladder. He just has that face to him.
    I would love to know what Roz meant by Gia’s Fried Uterus comment and that Massage.

    Steve, why do you think they did not cut out the New Zealand comment like you predicted? I was surprised they left it in. I guess just to make Roz look tacky?

    Even if ABC is making up everything ( which I doubt ) the court of public opinion has voted and they don’t believe her. Every time I see her I lose a little bit of faith each time that she isn’t being 100% honest. Is ABC 100% honest, probably not. There just seems to be this back and forth of ABC leading us on to believe she had sex with the guy and Rozlyn saying she didn’t have sex with the guy.

    Hopefully in one of these interviews Rozlyn will come clean. She can’t say it was all about her 8 year old son and then continue to give interview after interview. If she was concerned for her son and her personal life she would just vanish. If she would just say ” hey l didn’t cross the line with this guy, but we were/are more than just contestant and producer to each other and yes I am using the whole experience to become “famous” ” i think most people would understand that.

    Any PR person will tell you the world never forgets the tiniest lie, but can forgive just about anything if you tell the truth….

    Looking forward to the interview….

    Anxious to see if you ask her about the producers girlfriend and if as reported she broke up with him when she heard about the “scandal”.

    I do think there was some inappropriate behavior that Roz was having with a producer. I’m not a flirt, so it’s a big stand out when a girl I’m around is being flirtatious with a man. Not being that way, it always looks so tacky and deliberate when a girl is like that. So with Roz being the absolute drop dead gorgeous woman that she is, she’s probably used to flirting and having every single man bow down to her. So I feel that for sure she was flirting with the producer (who she is now keeping a friendship with — aka dating — as she herself said). C’mon. You don’t walk away from a show saying NOTHING happened except a producer helped you make a phone call… but oh yeah by the way, I see him often and we’ve met each others families. That’s crazy talk. That’s not even edited wrong, she did say that in a complete sentence… so that tells you SOMETHING was going on between them on the show. The only thing I could maybe see being lied about, are all the accusations of actually witnessing her doing this and that. There are probably other girls on the show flirting with the crew, but now that the spotlight is on Roz they are slowly remembering things. I don’t think it’s some big red flag that girls said in prior interviews that they couldn’t say a bad thing about her, but once actually in front of her they confess. I would much rather say something to someone’s face than in some interview with vultures prying for something juicy. So ok, even if you want to say these girls are flat out lying… it could just be planting evidence on someone you know is guilty. Yeah it’s wrong, but it doesn’t make the guilty party less guilty because others are making things up. Roz obviously did SOMETHING with that producer. Maybe it wasn’t having sex, maybe it wasn’t even making out, but some kind of actions were exchanged to declare hey this girl likes this guy and she is supposed to be here for Jake not him and oh yeah he works for the show so this is all kind of wrong. Then the show decided to exploit that to death to make blogs like this happen, and people tune in to see the scandal, and stretch some small thing into something big for ratings and chatter. So as much as you Reality Steve, want to sit in a higher thrown for being right about something… the show is the only thing winning here. They are getting everything they want and more just by you trying to fight them for the truth. But that’s not to put down you or your blog. I love it! I’m a film editor, so I love the manipulation of footage and the drama, and a blog like yours pointing it all out.

    I don’t know, I think Steve has a bit of crush himself and by his defending Rozlyn so vociferously, he’s hoping to get a little action too when they meet! LOL!!

    In all seriousness, I don’t think that Rozlyn is entirely innocent. There was a situation here that was blown up for sure (pardon the pun). But, this guy was fired, that is no lie. I would imagine that they would have to have given him a BUCKETFUL of money to avoid a wrongful dismissal case…would be interesting to see if he ends up on another show for ABC. He’s married and following Rozlyn around?? C’mon, there is more here than friendship, sorry.

    RS, I was expecting you to comment on the surprise you must have felt when those comments about Chris coming on to this “staffer’s wife” were left in. But you didn’t, hmmm…

    Truth is usually in the middle folks.

    great stuff Steve.. much to comment on
    I felt bad for Rozlyn last night, I was hoping she’d come across stronger. (The New Zealand comment made her look tasteless) But she definitely held her own, I can’t believe she stayed seated and composed through out it all. If I was her, I would have gotten up and walked out.
    As for Chris Harrison, what an ass, I honestly don’t know how someone like that sleeps at night. I hope he gets what he deserves.
    I definitely noticed how no attention was given to Corrie, I thought that was so strange until I read your column.
    Jake looked like he was ready to throw up and pass out when Chris asked him if he was happy with his decision. ha ha that’s what you get for picking Vienna.
    And what was up with bringing that huge security guard out on stage for the ending..weird
    Can’t wait to hear your news on the “ATFR”

    Shame on ABC for the train wreck they aired last night. There is now no doubt that Chris is a patronizing a-hole and I would bet anything that these idiotic women lied (stupid ABC pawns). Their stories were pathetic to say the least.

    Rozlyn did an okay job given the situation but I thought she was sometimes too quick to try and defend herself in regards to stuff that made no sense (she seemed to be hiding something but not necessarily what they are accusing her of). I think she should have just refused to comment once in a while. The “better person” part at the end was downright sick and she should have laughed at Chris’s face on that one. Gorgeous girl but not super sharp.

  18. phoenixsmom

    February 23, 2010 at 2:20 PM

    Chris was a total prick last night, and I had pretty much zero respect for him before, and I can honestly say there were points throughout his interview (attack), that I wanted to reach through the TV and smack him for being such an ass. Pompous was the perfect word to describe it. Smug bastard also works…

  19. mcreeek

    February 23, 2010 at 2:46 PM

    Steve – I have to completely disagree with you regarding Chris Harrison’s behavior last night. I thought he handled himself exceptionally well and was very admirable when interviewing Rozlyn – and here’s why. Rozlyn was all over the place with her excuses trying to prove she didn’t have an inappropriate relationship with the producer. In the beginning Chris tried to tell Rozlyn that he had no hard feelings towards her and even tried to be nice, but it was Rozlyn who turned the whole interview into a nasty he said/she said battle, not Chris. In fact, her last comment to Chris was a low blow and just goes to show how horrible of a person she really is. Are The Bachelor shows/reunions/tell-all’s completely 100% accurate? No. And while I’m sure the accusations and stories the other bachelorettes were telling about Rozlyn and the producer were not completely accurate either, it’s obvious that something did indeed happen between Rozlyn and the Producer. It’s just that she has told everyone that nothing happened for so long now that she’s even convinced herself that nothing actually happened. Instead, she should be thanking The Bachelor show for even giving her the opportunity to meet this producer – without the show, they would never have met.

    @bachelorwatcher
    Can you help me write my next University paper?
    You wrote about 500 words there! I’m just impressed because I’m suposed to be writing a paper and find it tough to get motivated when it’s a topic I am not motivated about.
    😉

    It’s interesting how so many people can watch the very same thing yet get such completely different views as to how they interpreted the ‘scene’. Great sociology study!

    I just notice @mcreeek has such an opposing view of CH’s barrage of nastiness. I don’t see Rozlyn being overly-nasty to anyone or badmouthing anyone but Chris sure had a big enough spoon to stir up some trouble!

  22. watching101

    February 23, 2010 at 3:45 PM

    If nothing happened between Rozlyn and this producer, wouldn’t ABC have a huge wrongful-firing lawsuit on their hands? Some how I don’t think ABC would walk right into that one.

  23. jakeisboring

    February 23, 2010 at 4:03 PM

    Steve, Jessie did not contradict herself in the two stories she told last night at all. The first time she said she was sick and went inside and saw them kissing on the stairs. She said the same thing the second time except for leaving out the part that she was sick. I don’t see that as a contradiction at all. Rozlyn’s body language was very much not the look of someone telling the truth. Do I completely believe the story ABC is putting out there? No. Do I believe Rozlyn. Not AT ALL. I think the real truth is somewhere in the middle. I definitely belive Rozlyn had some behaviors that were inappropriate with the producer, I also believe it has probably happened before other seasons, and that she was not kicked off for that reason, but because ABC probably needed some drama to make the show interesting, and she was the fall guy. She was easy pickens because really she isn’t believable at all.

  24. wookie

    February 23, 2010 at 4:25 PM

    If everything is false, why is there no legal action from the producer? He lost his job and is undergoing major defamation of character… he should have a slander case in the bag if everything being said is complete BS.

  25. wookie

    February 23, 2010 at 4:43 PM

    If everything being said is true, why is the producer not filing a lawsuit? He lost his job and is being defamed in the media. He’d have a slander case in the bag if everything Rozlyn claims is a lie really is a lie….

  26. tcm2010

    February 23, 2010 at 4:45 PM

    @wookie

    And if it’s all false why hasn’t the producer stepped up to say so?

  27. ashley m

    February 23, 2010 at 4:50 PM

    IF the producer is filing a law suit, I would think he couldn’t talk about it and maybe that is why Roz is not being as forthcoming as she could be in order to help him out.

  28. tcm2010

    February 23, 2010 at 4:50 PM

    FYI CH did an interview with EOnline today and said he would never answer any other Rozlyn questions… Also thought this was very telling and probably a lot closer to what is really going on.

    From US Weekly today.

    “I don’t think there was a sexual relationship,” Valishia goes on. “I think there was an inappropriate relationship; I think the producer told her information he shouldn’t have and they became friends.”

  29. bigpoppaevil

    February 23, 2010 at 4:54 PM

    There’s no lawsuit or wrongful dismissal case being mounted because the former producer admitted in interviews he got involved with Rozlyn.

    Here’s a question I want Steve to answer: how much is this you REALLY wanting the truth and how much is it you just looking for a payout of your own? You’ve freely admitted you’d like Mike Fleiss to buy your silence, and now you’ve gone and ‘sold’ an exclusive to US Weekly…

  30. bigpoppaevil

    February 23, 2010 at 4:56 PM

    And while I wonder about how much you got from the rag, did you offer up any of it to your trusted ‘source’? ‘Cuz if that was me giving you info and you went and sold it to a tabloid without offering me a piece of it? I’d cut off your ‘sources’ right then and there.

    February 23, 2010 at 5:00 PM

    Hey Steve… have you tried getting an interview with the producer? I’m glad I found this site as I am so gullible even though I still don’t like Ali. She’s trying to paint herself in a good light as she’s to be the next Bachelorette.

    I thought Gia came off better than expected last night. Michelle… I’m sorry. To me Jake doesn’t seem very happy. He seems almost beat down by this experience.

    Can’t wait for your next post and the interview! Enjoy reading the comments too!

    Whether Rozlyn was guilty or not….she was still ambushed.

    Is the producer who was fired still a married man?

  33. Da Babe

    February 23, 2010 at 5:19 PM

    I thought Roz did ok, especially since it seems like there is nothing backing up the allegations except he said, she said. She made a point – there’s video and audio all over the place and no one has produced any evidence. No straight answers from Chris – what a shock! So if she and the producer are closer friends now – who cares? She left and he got booted. I really think they made this crap up to deflect attention off the lameness of Jake and the boring girls. Speaking of the castoffs – I loved all the faces they were making when Roz was on the hotseat. And what the heck is an inappropriate relationship? Talk about vague. Because you put your hand on someone’s thigh? Some of those outtakes showed alot of the girls touching each other and acting kinda suggestive – is that appropriate? Puhlease.

    And don’t get me started about the audience – they looked like they were just beamed in from Pluto. Duh.

    I can see why Jake is single – he needs a strong woman to carry him. I thought when he first came out he mouthed something to Ali maybe? Did anyone catch that?

    Carry on Steve! I look forward to your commentary.

    Roz is a beautiful woman but a total lier. She deserved everything she got. The producer and his dad went to her house after all of this?? Have you see his photo. she is totally out of his league. He sort of looks like the fat guy in “hangover”. Anyways, good luck to them all..they will need it.

    Steve, does your neck hurt from fellating yourself so much?

    It’s very obvious and even a bit disturbing how obsessed you are with Rozlyn. You’re not getting any, so just leave it alone. You accuse ABC of creating and fabricating stories; well, you are doing the same thing with Rozlyn, trying to defend her “innocence.” The reason why you have to ramble on and on about it is because it’s not an easy task to do–she’s clearly guilty, and anyone who doesn’t see that needs to open their eyes and quit being such a mindless follower.

    While beautiful, Rozlyn is trashy and rude. Maybe you guys would hit it off, after all.

    February 23, 2010 at 5:37 PM

    If the Producer and Ali had something going…why not a short clp of them…the girls did say they went and tattled..so why did they not get ashort clip to prove she was lying?

    Yes the women lied……………..but not about Rozalyn. THAT they told the truth about.

    There is no doubt in my mind that she stepped over the line. She did not react like an innocent person…..she acted like her back was up because she got her hand caught in the proverbial cookie jar.

    The women lied when they told Chris that they liked Vienna.

    Reality Steve – you may have insider infomation regarding the outcome of each episode…..but you sir are not a woman.

    There are several codes that all women live by:

    #1. “You piss me off, you are NEVER my friend”.

    #2. “A womans first impression is ALWAYS right”

    # 3. “Once a skank, always a skank”.

    Obviously, the women last night were given financial incentives or threatened with lawsuits unless they pal’d up to the Queen of all Skanks. Vienna has lied, whined, cheated on her first husband and stolen his money. ABC is trying to make her look better in the public’s eyes………since (as you say) she is the ultimate winner.

    Winner of what?

    Well not much.

    She wins the guy who has lost the self respect of an entire nation by his ridiculous comments and choices. The guy who let her interrupt other woman’s one on one discussions. On SO many occasions.

    For a guy who thinks of himself as so “nice” – Jake did your mother not teach you that it is extremly rude to interrupt 2 people in a conversation? He should have sent Vienna out of the room and ragged her out for being such a social moron. And he should have sent her home.

    Sorry Jake – but if you do choose Vienna – you will be the laughingstock of America……….and quite frankly after your actions this season, you will deserve our distain.

    Oh yea – and you will deserve Vienna…..beause that is the bst you will ever do after embarrasingyourself on national television. No wonder you never had a date in high school.

    @longing Jake had a highschool sweetheart and is a serial dater, had many relationships as well. He’s not the Jake people think he is. You should take a look fly_girl’s posts on FORT.

    Hey Steve,

    Love your column. Just so you know, a lot of us have started hounding Chris’ Facebook fan page to do the interview with you. Of course he will probably not acknowledge us, but in my post to him (I had to become of “fan” of his – eww – to post) I not only told him to do the interview, but also to acknowledge everyone who is going to be hounding him to do it. I will update you if he acknowledges us.

    Also, good job getting mentioned, what, like three times in this week’s Us and can’t wait to read the news tonight!

    Thank God this WTA wasn’t as fluffy as they usually are. I usually keep my finger on the fast-forward button.
    I was surprisingly impressed that they didn’t COMPLETELY butcher the Rozlyn interview.
    Although, I’m sure they did butcher it some. I was quite proud of the fact that she got a few good “hits” in. Some tacky, yes, but good hits. I enjoyed watching Chris get a little nervous. My favorite part was when he said, “We are trying to make a TV show” or something along those lines. Had I been Rozlyn, I would have taken that and ran with it- saying, “No joke- that’s why you have manipulated this cast of woman and still cannot provide me with one piece of evidence of my ‘inappropriate realtionship'” I think she made an EXCELLENT point about the cameras that have absolutely no footage of this “affair”.
    And what was up with ALI suddenly playing the “Now that I’m the Bachelorette, I should probably apologize for being such a nasty, mean girl” card? She is all about the “Make America Love Me” strategy right now. I guess she figures that she needs to make nice so people will watch her show. I don’t trust her. Period.

    FYI Chris told E! today in an interview that it was last interview he would do mentioning Rozlyn.

    In an article about body language showing you are lying, besides discussing Roz, the following comments were made about Chris and the New Zealand comment:

    “And what’s Chris Harrison trying to hide? When Roz bit back at Chris, claiming he hit on her producer friend’s wife in New Zealand, Chris got a little cagey.

    “Chris broke eye contact, looked down and appeared to struggle with making direct eye contact with Rozlyn again. Chris can clearly be seen swallowing — a clear sign of anxiety and nervousness when read in context. My hunch is that there is probably more to the New Zealand story than Harrison would like to discuss,” Harris explains.”

    Interesting!

    I actually LIKE Chris Harrison BUT last night his body language was awkard. And was he sunburned or was he BEET red on his neck/down? I am not sure what I think about the Roz interview……I thought she did well but I’m not 100% sure I still believe her. I do think something happened but NOT to the extent that ABC is making it seem. Shame on all those girls for LYING. And I saw some definite ass kissing from a few that want to be the next Bachelorette 🙂

    I didn’t believe a single word of what Jessie said last night, plus ” i swear on my dogs life” lol like W.T.F? also didn’t Jessie said “Michelle is not a consecutive person”, really?? she said she only saw Rozlyn sleeping on the couch and thought it was weird, she stayed with her version of the story didn’t see anything didn’t attack Rozlyn, but Jessie the stable one proved that the one that is not a consecutive person is her not Michelle. so Jessie equals liar and bipolar. Jessie is definitely desperate for attention

    BTW, Steve: I completely died of laughter when I read under “Questions, Questions, Questions” the following: ” What the hell was Channy doing on the panel last night?” And yes, Tenley “dropping out of a Disney movie, and dreaming in cartoons” was HILARIOUS!

    I love RealitySteve and love his blogs, but he is def biased. Just because Steve says it doesnt make it truth. Roz is a big fat lier. .If I looked like her I would do it doggie style with TV people Ryan the producer is a fat pumpkin head and when Roz wakes up, she will kick him to the curb.

    Chris was not a “wuss” last nite, he was a “RUS”, Rodent of Unusual Size! What a bully and hypocrite he was….I wanted to call him and say “hello Pot, this is Ketel!” Dork…
    And, I cannot buy any of Jake’s words anymore, to Gia, My heart was crying?????? Wow! If anyone is buying his load of crap, I have some great Ponzi bonds for you…..

    I agree with you about Rozlyn but they have video/audio evidence of Wes admitting he had a girlfriend so I’m not sure why you still stand by him.
