Reality Steve

Bachelor Juan Pablo Spoilers

Exclusive Look at 5 of Juan Pablo’s Girls and Today’s “Daily Links”

I know a lot you are interested in what I have to say on the Dr. Phil show from yesterday with Gia’s mom. And Jake. And her publicist. The whole thing just seemed off to me. If that’s the way her mom chooses to deal with her grief, who am I to say whether she did the right or wrong thing. Personally for me, I thought it was a bit much, it was over-the-top, and it just seemed a bit too soon. Don’t even get me started on Jake and the publicist’s appearance. Completely unnecessary and was obviously done for personal gain. Frankly, that part disgusted me. The nerve of Jake to make Gia’s death all about him. What a phony. Like we’ve always said about that guy, he’s never met a camera he didn’t like. It was very hard to sit through that, and although not every question was answered, I just hope its left alone now and people can stop trying to capitalize off such a sad story. Pathetic.

Not as many “Daily Links” today only because putting together these profiles took longer than I thought. Back tomorrow with more “Daily Links,” “Reader Emails,” and “Dr. Reality Steve.”

Daily Links

-When I heard Miley & Britney were collaborating on something, I just figured it was porn. Apparently not.

-I have no idea who this new guy is with Taylor Swift, but I do know two things: 1) It’ll be over within two months and 2) He’ll have a song written about him.

-Khloe hired a private investigator and all he could find was 5 mistresses for Lamar? Gee, he must be a really crappy private investigator.

-Good, now maybe she’ll dump him. I’m gonna go on record as saying these two aren’t going to last. Not like it would surprise anyone, but there’s a rule in Hollywood. When the female is much more famous than the male partner, bad things happen in the relationship.

-Of course the X Factor isn’t about the judges. That’s why we heard speculation for months on end as to who would fill Britney and LA’s seats. Lets face it, the singing competition shows are much more about which judges you can pull then actually about the talent.

-Kanye can call out Ray J on national TV all he wants, but face it K, he was all up in that years before you were and we’ve all seen it. Well, some of us have. Scoreboard. He wins.

-I honestly wouldn’t mind if they delayed “Pirates of the Caribbean 5” to, oh I don’t know, never.

-Take a wild guess as to which female musician came to Miley’s defense, all while slamming Katy Perry in the process? Can’t say I’m the least bit surprised by this one.

-I’ve never watched “Sons of Anarchy,” but I’m sure many of you have with the premiere being last night. Here’s an interview creator Kurt Sutter did where he talks about this final season’s plans.

-Chaz Bono is losing weight. Just thought you should know.

Twitter feuds are always fun to watch play out. Even if they’re with two people I could give two sh**s about. Nicki Minaj and Gucci Mane, you’re up.

-If an 83 year old Clint Eastwood and 48 year old Dina can’t make it work, man, is there any hope for the rest of us? Apparently, since Clint has already moved on to someone younger.

-Lets just say this couldn’t have happened to a better guy. How’s that taste, Tiger?

    Big YAAAWWWNNN Steve. It’s September 11. How about a small shoutout to the thousands who died on this date 12 years ago?

    I’m amused at some of the negative comments towards Steve. (other recent columns, not just this one) I’m not sure what else people are expecting, as he said he’d release the first five of Juan Pablo’s girls today, and that’s what he did. It just goes to show you can’t please everyone. Personally, I’d rather him post a brief column with a few daily links than nothing at all. At least it gives us something to read in the slow season.

    Regarding the contestants, just based on the photos, the only one that stands out to me at all is Kat.

    When I heard Gia’s Mom was going to be on Dr. Phil….I thought that I might give it a look.

    Then I saw the clip and Dr. Phil kinda nauseated me….and then I saw the clip of Jake…..and I got sick.

    So, I skipped it… honor of Gia.

    Just watched Dr.Phil and was reminded of why I can’t stand the guy. I couldn’t finish when Jake started talking and crying. He is the worst fame whore, just gross. I agree with Steve about it feeling a tad off with Gia’s mom’s segment. I’m not going to judge her, just saying It’s not something I would ever consider doing in her situation, and definitely not mere weeks after losing my child. But whatever, RIP Gia.

    I wasn’t really trying to be negative. I just thought Steve would have mentioned the signifigance (sp?) of the day in the column. I’ll sure be glad when he starts his regular columns again.

    If Ashley is a 1st grade teacher, why is she leaving her class at the beginning of the school year? If my kid were in her class, I’d make sure he was out by the time she returned. I guess going on a stupid reality dating show is more important than teaching kids.

    September 11, 2013 at 3:02 PM

    Agree that Kat is the most attractive. But nice to see a couple women have “real” jobs and not just hooter type jobs.

    Since I was on record as saying Juanie never impressed me at all…looks or otherwise, this will again be a season like Ben’s when I occasionally tune in, but always read Steve for the complete rundown of each week’s activities.

    Also like any column Steve puts out…lengthy or brief, his input is always interesting and many times laugh worthy.

    Agree with Sunnyside422 on Juan Pablo being a disappointment and also agree that I enjoy Steve’s columns in or out of season.

    Kat is a fame seeking, superficial, snob and a half. She has no interest in being a wife or a mother. She wants to be famous. I hope for his sake, he will pick up on it. Her dream is to be on dancing with the stars. And like her mediocre dance video, she is also mediocre at best. Make up, a boob job and false eyelashes do wonders!!

    What is disgusting is even commenting on the Dr. Phil segment or what you think is “over the top” (Reality Steve), what you would do, what you wouldn’t do (comments above), or anything else. These individuals are grieving the loss of an amazing person. Why do you think Gia’s mom is on there? Because the tabloids have been spewing disgusting stories and she wanted people to know what the real story was. Good for her, I commend her for doing so, and for having the strength to do it now instead of letting the stories drag on and on.

    Who are you to criticize? Gia defended Jake many times so who are we to judge his emotions? I personally never liked him in the Bachelor but felt that watching him, his feelings were pretty raw and sad. You should be ashamed – pretty sure if you have never lost someone to suicide you are in NO place to judge.

    Iheart- Yea, not sure what’s going on lately either, but wow, can we give Steve a break? Wow.
    He didn’t mention the victims of 9-11 in this blog? Really? I doubt there are many Americans that didn’t stop and think of the tragedy that took place in 2001, but why does Steve have to voice that on a Bachelor blog, 12 years after the fact? I have to assume people are joking, otherwise, it gets a little creepy that anyone is taking this blog that seriously.

    And how dare he have an opinion on Dr. Phil’s coverage of Gia Allemand’s suicide? How dare he have an opinion on Gia at all? I’m pretty sure Steve has come much closer than any of us have to ever even meeting her. He wrote a very, very, sweet, heartfelt tribute to Gia back when this first happened, he spoke about meeting her, how sweet she was, how humble she seemed, and, truly, he owes nothing to anyone. If anything, he has been one of her biggest advocates after her suicide, asking for people not to jump to conclusions and deeply empathizing with those who loved her. Steve is allowed to discuss whatever he chooses, and guess why? Because this is HIS blog. People are getting weirder by the day, it frightens me.

    Anyhow, glad he put up the column about the girls.. too early to tell for me, but I think we should continue the tradition of picking our favorites.. can’t wait to find out more about Juan’s season and his ladies! Thanks, Steve!

    Ahhhhhh I adore Kat and love that she got cast!! She was so excited about making the Suns so along with her (legit) job that was probably tough to put aside for this… but Juan Pablo is a catch so it will all be worth it 🙂

    Can’t wait to watch — thanks for posting, Steve.

    kasey, my thoughts exactly! Hmmm, a blogger sharing his opinion about something? What a concept! How dare he! lol

  14. strick432

    September 12, 2013 at 12:20 PM

    Wow kasey – I didn’t mean to piss anybody off – Steve writes a REALITY blog and I just thought he would have mentioned the meaning of the day – calm down. It’s not the end of the world. Or wait – maybe that was September 11th. Never mind. Eat a cookie or something.

    Kasey and Iheart, I’m with ya. It’s Steve’s blog so gets to offer up his opinion on anything he likes. I especially like it when I agree with him, as I did regarding Gia’s mom doing Dr.Phil.

    Hi y’all! New kid here! I was encouraged to start commenting by the sweet Kasey31, and she promised I could sit at the cool kid’s table right away.

    My thoughts on Chhhhhhhwan Paaaaahblo? I love him. He’s pretty, and I can’t understand a word he’s saying. What more could a girl ask for?

    My thoughts on the first 5 girls? Meh. They all look pretty lame to me. It’s hard to judge without observing their interactions on the show, however. So I reserve the right to change my mind.

    My thoughts on Dr. Phil? Blech. Jake? Blech. Gia’s mom? My heart breaks for her and I bear no judgement against her. Gia? Suicide is a difficult subject to wrap my mind around. Having been affected by it in “real life” I have been both furious and empathetic towards those who take their own lives…but at the end of the day, none of us can know the depths of pain and hopelessness Gia must have felt. I wish she could have been stronger, but I can’t hold it against her that she wasn’t.

    My thoughts on whether or not RS owed the readership a blurb on 9/11? Umm…nope. This is not NPR…this is Reality Steve. And personally, I was glad to come here and unplug from the grief of the day. That doesn’t make me a bad person, nor a shallow one. Neither does it reflect those things onto RS.

    That being said, we are all entitled to our opinions, and RS has been kind enough to allow a dialog on this site. So I believe, as long as people are respectful, that dissention and debate is both useful and entertaining. It’s healthy to express criticism!

    Hi perfecta. 🙂 I nodded my head in agreement when reading your comment. (Although I personally don’t care for Juan Pablo’s accent, and my opinion of him has changed ever since noticing how self-indulged he appears to be with all of his selfies) Also, ever since I read the part about sitting at the cool kids’ table, I can’t get that scene in Mean Girls out of my head- “You can’t sit with us!!!!” Lol

    Back to the 9/11 talk, I came across plenty of people on Wednesday that didn’t acknowledge the date in our conversations. I certainly didn’t take that as meaning they didn’t care or weren’t affected by the tragedy that happened 12 years ago.

    Hi iheartvino!! 🙂

    It’s hard for me to apply normal standards to anyone who appears on the Bachelor/Bachelorette. In “real life” I would run from a guy like Pablo. But, as far as watching him on a craptastic reality show? Yes, please!!

    (So, if I’m Cady…does that make you Regina George and kasey31 Gretchen Weiner? Lol.)

  19. iheartvino

    September 13, 2013 at 11:54 AM

    Ok now I want to leave work and just go home and watch Mean Girls. (Did I really just admit that? Haha)

    I’m all for watching Juan Pablo as the Bachelor, and yes he is definitely easy on the eyes. (Just not easy on the ears in my opinion!) I know a lot of women find his accent sexy, but it doesn’t do anything for me. Now give me Aiden from Revenge- I could listen to his deep British accent allll day.

    Speaking of Revenge, only a couple of weeks til the premiere! Randais, are you still visiting this site regularly? Haven’t seen you comment in a while.

  20. kasey31

    September 13, 2013 at 12:02 PM

    Hey you two!!! Haha.. why do I have to be the Weiner?

    Welcome, Perfecta!! Glad you found us : )
    I’m so excited you’ll be commenting here, as your opinions have always meant a lot to me in my personal life, and I know you’ll contribute a lot on here, too.. Woo hoo! 2 of my favorite people on one blog, what am I gonna do with myself?

    Strick, I was eating a cookie while reading your comment :/ Didn’t mean to offend you, I just thought you were being unfair to Steve.

  21. perfecta

    September 13, 2013 at 1:56 PM

    kasey31, you can play Amanda Seyfried’s character and use your ESPN (boobs) to tell us if it’s raining. Lol.

    iheartvino…there is no shame in loving the greatness that is “Mean Girls”.


  22. kasey31

    September 13, 2013 at 2:44 PM

    Perfecta- My ESPN (lol) boobs tell me it’s hot.. very, very hot. We need some rain..

    Hey! Yea, where is Randais? Come out of hiding! Revenge is starting back up soon.. hopefully this season will be better than the last..

    Alli is gorgeous and would be great for Juan Pablo! She is super nice and genuine and has an amazing energy. Plus, not only is she beautiful, but she was also a nanny for many years, loves kids and is great with them. Add that to the fact that she is an athlete who has played soccer almost all of her life and these two are a great match! ((No pun intended!)

  24. kasey31

    September 15, 2013 at 12:40 AM

    Katie- Alli is the one that stood out to me, too, out of the 5 girls so far.. we will have to wait and see what the rest are like!

    Hi Everyone!! I am not new to RS site, as I have been reading his site for a long time now, I LOVE IT!!

    I am getting excited for this season and thanks RS for all the sneak peaks of the girls, I look forward to it all.

    Hi Kasey31, I agree with you all the way about Allie. I just hope most of the girls are there for the right reasons and we don’t have anyone like we have seen from the past shows.

    Yes, I can’t wait till Revenge starts up again!! I am addicted and I am so into this show….just love, love it.

  26. kasey31

    September 18, 2013 at 10:47 PM

    Hi, luckykiss! Welcome : )
    I hope so too, but it’s pretty hard to accept that anyone is here for the right reasons, initially at least.. every time I hear” right reasons,” I can’t help but cringe now, all thanks to Dean’s season haha.
    Another Revenge fan? I like you already! Can’t wait for Revenge to start back up again.. finally!

  27. kasey31

    September 18, 2013 at 10:48 PM

    And by Dean, I mean Des..
