Well that didn’t take long. Not one day removed from Kelsey’s glamorous exit from the show and she’s already getting out there front and center to talk to anyone who’ll listen. A reporter was at her viewing party Monday night and has informed us that she is taking a writing job in Paris and left yesterday for two weeks. She’ll come back for the birth of her nephew then head back out there in the summer and stay “as long as Paris will have me.” Good riddance. Hope it’s forever. This chick is all about self promotion and she’s obsessed with what people think of her. Her father even took to the comment section of that article to defend his daughter, making this whole thing even more bizarre. Lets just all be happy Kelsey is out of the country as we speak, is no longer a guidance counselor because she “quit” (wink, wink), and will be spreading her word all over Paris for hopefully years to come. Couldn’t have happened to a more sane, down-to-earth, humble woman. Good luck in all your adventures. You will not be missed.
Obviously until the announcement is official, the speculation on who will be the next “Bachelorette” is something that I hear about every day. You know where I stand in I still think they’ll choose Britt. However, many of you who have an argument against her say, “They’d never choose Britt because she’s a waitress in Hollywood.” What does her job have to do with it? Carly is a cruise ship singer. Is that some profession that men are dying to marry into? Becca is a chiropractor’s assistant. Is that something lavish that just screams “next Bachelorette?” Hell, I don’t even know what Kaitlyn does but I certainly don’t think it’s anything jaw dropping. Look, there’s a chance Britt may not be the “Bachelorette.” I’m just saying if she isn’t, it’s certainly not gonna be because of her job. Ali didn’t even have a job when she got the gig. Neither did Emily. So lets not pretend their profession is some major overriding factor on who gets chosen, because if that’s the case, then none of Chris’ girls are getting it.
I know I’m a little late on this but here’s Jillian’s conference call with the media from last week. Nothing too interesting other than the fact that she’s owning the black box. Good for her. You know that’s what she’s going as for Halloween this year.
Yesterday I referenced the fact that if you’re not in the US, a lot of the video links I put up you’re unable to view but there is a way you can. I received this email yesterday:
Anyone out of the U.S. can view clips that are restricted to Americans by installing a VPN (virtual private network) app. I am in Canada and I use Hotspot Shield ….but there are many such programs out there (your readers can Google ‘free VPN’). It basically assigns you a temporary IP address – you choose the country to be fake-‘based’ in — so when you access a clip, the media outlet thinks you’re based in that country. I use this for some US media sites but also to pretend to be based in Britain when I want to watch Downton Abbey long before it airs in North America.
So there you go Canada! Don’t say I’m not looking out for my neighbors to the north. Eh?
Nell Kalter’s RHOBH recap is now up. I’m not sure what Brandi did this episode, but I’m finally caught up on Celebrity Apprentice. Bummed she got the boot. Not that I ever thought she’d win, but moreso that I don’t get to watch her anymore. Sad day. I’m sure I’ll get through it. Just like she gets through every day with a box of wine.
Don’t forget to get your “Dr. Reality Steve” emails in for tomorrow’s column. Already have about 5 or 6 as we speak but always looking for more. Any relationship/sex/marriage/friendship questions you have, send them my way. The doctor is always in.
