Reader Emails

Reaction to the Brad/Laurel Story & More “Reader Emails”

“Reader Emails” this week are interesting to say the least. Some ridiculous ones, some good ones, and some off the wall ones. I guess I should expect nothing less at this point. After the week I’ve had, and the crazy reaction to the Brad/Laurel article, I think I’m just happy for this week to be over so I can move on. The stuff people come up with and the theories people have really blow me away sometimes. Really? Laurel is in on this with ABC? Huh? How is that remotely possible? People kill me sometimes. But hey, I guess that’s what makes this fun to do at times. This past Wednesday was the largest traffic I’ve ever had on this site for a Wednesday, and I didn’t even write anything. So at least I know where people are coming to when news breaks about this show, and I want to thank you for that. On to the emails

Love your column and find it to be very witty. They always the suitcases packed for the 1 on 1 or 2 on 1 date, but do the girls have to all pack their suitcases before a rose ceremony or do they go back and pack after they have been kicked off?

Comment: You have to pack your suitcase before every rose ceremony, 1-on-1, or 2-on-1 date. Sweet. A one sentence answer. I wonder if I can do that for the whole column and be done in five minutes. Ummmm, probably not.

Do you think they would ever have an all-star season? Bring back all the favorite girls of seasons past.

Comment: Man, if they actually did an All-Star season with a bunch of former bachelors or bachelorettes, how desperate would those people look? You really want to do this again knowing you have a 1-in-25 chance? I don’t think the show would do it, but you can bet your ass you could find 25 former contestants that would want to be on TV again. You kidding me? Some of these people cling to the fact they were on a reality show for a few episodes and would probably kill to be on it again since, well, that whole TV/Modeling/Acting career hasn’t quite panned out like they thought it would after they were on the first time.

Hi Steve,

Wow wasn’t it embarrassing how completely and utterly wrong you were about Ali’s season. Wasn’t it funny and pathetic how you managed to look like an even bigger douche then you already are by trying to save face hours before the finale aired. Man I just love saying it, you were wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong. Anyway, my question is this, how many more times will you have to be wrong before you finally shut up and go away?

Comment: Oh, I loved this email. See there are people out there who read my site quite often in hopes that I’m wrong. They actually take time out of there awfully productive day to come over to just to see if I fail. Man, what a life they must lead.

I admitted on numerous occasions last season I was wrong, so I don’t really see where they are going with that. Never once did I try and shy away from the fact that from the time I announced Ali was single in mid June, til the time the finale aired Aug. 2nd when I got the updated information, that during that time I was wrong. If I’m wrong, I’ll admit it. I’ve got no problem with that whatsoever. For a second, I thought my six year old niece wrote in that question with the “you were wrong, wrong, wrong” line. Really? Where was the “Nanny nanny billygoat” line to follow?

To answer your question of how many more times will I have to be wrong before I finally shut up and go away? Uhhhh, probably not anytime soon considering I haven’t been wrong about a single thing season, and am not going to be either. But thanks for caring so much. You know, I’m sure there are anger management classes they can sign up for in their area. Might wanna look into it. I have an idea: How about you worry about your life and all the misery that it entails, and let me handle my website as I see fit. Deal? Because something tells me I’m going to be a hell of a lot better off in the long run. Just a hunch.

    I am a loyal reader and have been for years and yes, I hate the “I know something you don’t know” stuff, but whatever…I still like the content of the blog. I think if Steve is not going to get into what he says he knows, he shouldn’t mention it at all. It’s annoying and seems like he is trying to prove something. But it is his blog, he can do what ht wants.

    I came across this written by you in the Bachelor Brad #11 archives (go figure lol):

    And in Brad’s case, I have no doubt he’s dated some amazing women. He seems like one that would stay in touch with his ex’s. Maybe even call her on occasion. Even when he’s filming the show. You know, just to tell her he’s bored or something and wants her back. Hey, just a guess

    Anytime someone sells someone to the press, no matter what their “reason” is, I can’t help but be skeptical. To me, it seems like she not only wanted some cash, but also wanted to be known. Sooo, she sold him out. I can understand doing that when someone else has slandered your name and you want to set the record straight but no one knew about her, which is exactly why she sold the story. Now scores of people know of her AND she has some extra cash. Sounds win/win for her. Here’s the thing with Brad and every man/woman who has been approached to do the show…they aren’t sitting around innocently polishing their halos when all of the sudden an ABC producer pops out of no where and offers them a contract to do the show. They then don’t jump up and down at their sheer luck of opportunity in finding love without a care about the contract/money. IT’S A SHOW. Of course these things are discussed and of course they care about them. They aren’t thanking their lucky stars for just a chance at finding love. They are thanking their lucky stars at a chance at finding love PLUS great publicity, PLUS money, PLUS maybe becoming semi-famous. If any of them say all they cared about was finding love, then that’s a load of bull. So when Brad was contacted about the show, its only natural he’d mention the money part to someone he had been close to. And if he and Laurel were off and on, maybe this was the added push they needed to either be together or not. He says he’s a changed man, not a saintly knight. He never said he was perfect or that he happened to be polishing his brand new halo when the show’s producer’s fell out of the sky and wouldn’t he be like ANYONE ELSE if he had a bit of baggage with him at the time? So he had an on and off connection with someone at the time the show’s producers contacted him. I wouldn’t be surprised if that wasn’t the case for most of the Bachelor/Bachelorettes, at least to some extent. The difference between Brad and Laurel is this, Brad is making more money being the star of this season’s Bachelor than Laurel did selling him out, but HE never sold HER out and since no one is perfect, I’m sure she wouldn’t appreciate him showing some of HER texts. There are two sides to every story.

    I think Laurel is getting a bad wrap for spilling her story for money! HELL I’d sell my Ex out for free if he dumped me for a reality tv wife with big ta ta’s! Cut her some slack!! Her biggest mistake was not seeing through Fake Jake’s promises of marriage to her!!!

    You can’t control the crappy things others do to you, but you CAN control your own behavior. You can be classy or you can be vengeful. Does she feel avenged? Probably not. What she probably feels is a little richer. But hey, if being a vengeful person is what someone wants to be, then so be it. But a bad wrap may be the consequence.
