Back again tonight with another live video blog (9:00PM EST/6:00PM PST). Next week I’m in California and at the Angel game Thursday night with my webmaster, so, there won’t be another live video blog until July 12th. Get your questions in tonight. Especially the real good ones like, “Is Emily carrying Chris Harrison’s baby?”
Obviously gotta start with the Star Magazine report that Emily and Chris Harrison are together. I want to give a special shout out to Star for printing that bogus, ridiculous, uninformed story since it blew up my Twitter feed and inbox. I’m kinda beginning to dread Wednesdays now, because that’s the day the tabloids come out. And the second anyone reads anything regarding the “Bachelorette,” no matter how ridiculous and without merit or sources it is, immediately I get asked about it. Go do a search of “@RealitySteve” on Twitter from yesterday, and you’ll see all the people who asked or retweeted me about the story. After a while, I just gave up. People, please think before asking if it’s true or not. I mean, really. Do you honestly think that Emily and Chris Harrison are together? Really? REALLY? It’s amazing what tabloids will print just for a reaction. And for Vienna to be the one to put her name behind it saying she “guarantees Emily and Chris are together” is mind boggling. I hope they paid her well. All you need to do would be to think about the ramifications something like that would have on this franchise to know there’s not an ounce of truth to it. No, Emily is not with Chris Harrison. Lets move on.
Yesterday afternoon I did an interview with Celebzter.com, where they asked me a few questions regarding the website, the lawsuit, and the show in general. To read the interview, click here. And wow, that picture of Maddie and I couldn’t have been more than a month after I adopted her back in 2008. I need some new photos of myself. I barely have any. Guys are different that way. When we go out at night, we don’t incessantly take pictures of ourselves with Zoolander face like women do. And ladies, if a guy does have a Facebook page with pictures of himself plastered all over it, you might wanna turn and run the other way.
Hey, guess what? ABC is toying with you again in their latest promo for the hometown date episodes. This didn’t air after Monday’s show, but went up online Tuesday:
So for like the 1000th time in this show’s history, they’re jerking around with their audience making you believe something that isn’t true. And plenty of people were fooled considering how many tweets and emails I got asking about it yesterday. The answer is no, Sean does not live at home. It’s a joke they played on Emily making her believe he did.
Your latest “Burning Love” episode is now up and available. Sorry monkey heart girl. No hose for you. Oops. Spoiler.
And finally, I wanted to make mention of this because it probably wasn’t going to get out there unless someone brought it up, and since it involves one of this season’s contestants, I figured I’d share. Hate to out Sean Lowe for this since I’m guessing he didn’t do this looking for publicity, but it’s too good of a story not to mention.
Last year two high school friends in Dallas, Anna Basso (@1million4Anna), and Micaela White (@micaelasarmy), were both patients at Dallas Childrens Hospital. Anna was diagnosed with Ewing’s Sarcoma, and Micaela with Leukemia. After long battles, each passed away last year. Anna died on June 8th, 2011, while Micaela died August 17th. Both sets of parents had said that their daughters favorite show was the “Bachelor.” So all of their friends, now freshmen in college, get together from time to time to talk about the charity, and have pot luck dinners and watch the show and so forth. I was informed that Sean was told of this story and made a surprise appearance last night to one of the parties. You can actually see on his Twitter page (@SeanLowe09), him wearing the wrist bands in support of both girls. This is a video done last year that I found talking about their story. It was made after Anna had died, but before Micaela had passed:
Very cool story and I applaud Sean for doing something like that. I’m sure if he wanted publicity out of this, cameras crews would’ve been tipped off and been there during his arrival. I was told this was completely spontaneous and none of the friends knew he was showing up. Also, if you look back on Sean’s Twitter feed, you’ll find that on June 13th he corresponded with Lauren Scruggs. This was the Dallas model that lost her left hand and one of her eyes in a helicopter accident last December. I was told Sean joined Lauren at her rehab appointment that day, and that’s how they met. So lets see, Ryan uses his notoriety from the show to judge chicks in bikinis and get bottle service at poolside cabanas in Vegas, and Sean is doing this? Why don’t we just give him the Humanitarian of the Year Award now and call it a day. Props to Sean for doing this.
