Because I’m such a great guy, on the final week of “Reader Emails” for this season until May rolls around and the “Bachelorette” starts back up, I’ve divided it up into two columns this week since I have a ton to sift through. So here’s Part 1 today, and tomorrow I’ll have Part 2. Actually, a lot has to do with the fact that I was at the Mavs game last night watching Lebron destroy them, didn’t get home til late, and really didn’t feel like doing ALL 70 or so emails today. So there’s a little over 40 in today’s bag, and then I’ll do more tomorrow. Basically because this is the finale week, all emails you see in today and tomorrow’s column were sent from Monday night on. I figured you didn’t want to read any emails that came to me before the finale aired. You’re welcome. To anyone who did send emails from last Wednesday through Monday night – sorry. Got way too many since Monday to include those. I apologize. So tomorrow I’ll be back with Part 2, the final “Dr. Reality Steve” of the season (so get those emails in as we’re light right now), and then the last live video chat until May tomorrow night. Next Monday will be the return of “Daily Links” so you can come here for all your entertainment/pop culture and even sports news along with my thoughts on them.
With the “Bachelorette” beginning filming tomorrow night, a lot of you have asked what the deal is and why/if they’re gonna use Britt and Kaitlyn for the whole season. As I wrote yesterday, I didn’t see that happening and that it was gonna be the guys choosing on the first night who they wanted as the “Bachelorette.” Yesterday, Chris Harrison basically confirmed that’s the plan in his interview with TVGuide.com. Which then leads to the question: When will I spoil who the guys chose? The answer: When I know. Look, it’s gonna get out. Chris Harrison admitted it. I might find out 24 hrs after it happens. I might find out in 3 days. It might get spoiled on social media after the first date happens, or ABC might even acknowledge it in a press release like Chris says. With the show beginning filming tomorrow night, that means Friday is an off day, and Saturday will start the dates. I’d be shocked if who the guys chose isn’t spoiled somewhere by the end of the weekend. You’ll know.
Chris and Whitney did their conference call with the media yesterday, and they basically said not a whole hell of a lot. Check it out for yourselves, but yeah, my opinion of them hasn’t changed. Maybe give them 3 months.
Yesterday morning I appeared on “Good Morning Texas” to talk all things “Bachelor” and “Bachelorette” and here was my brilliant performance. Or not.
Already hearing some things about the guys I posted yesterday, one in particular, that I will update you on tomorrow. Oh this is my favorite time of the season. Seriously, spoiling the show as it happens and piecing the puzzle together is the best part for me. I always like this time of year when the show is filming. Good stuff. Remember last season, there were very few dates spoiled on social media. Some seasons are bigger than others, so we’ll never know until it happens. During the next two months, just know a lot of stuff is spoiled first on Twitter and then I bring it to my column later, so if you want to follow along, I suggest following me on Twitter @RealitySteve.
Nell Kalter’s RHOBH recap is now up and ready for your viewing. Did Brandi get drunk this episode? I’ll guess yes.
