Didn’t take long for the paparazzi to leak pictures from Sunday’s boxing group date, did it? Now, whether they were really hiding out and secretly got those pictures or if ABC was well aware they were there and let them do it from a distance remains to be seen. I’ll go with the latter. Any promotion is good promotion, and it didn’t look like there was all that much security around that place for these guys to start clicking away. As I tweeted yesterday, 3 of the 8 guys on Sunday’s date, I’ve already given you: Tanner, Daniel, and Corey. The other 5 I have full names and bios for and I’ll release them in the coming days/weeks. Haven’t decided when yet. I’ve got 10 more guys total now which means I’m at 17. I don’t think I’ve ever had 17 contestants just 5 days into filming before, so hey, we’re off to a good start this season. If you don’t remember the previous 7 posted or don’t remember where to find it, click here. Another group date today at the Hollywood improv that Amy Schumer will be at. Any fan of hers knows that she references the “Bachelor” a lot in her stand up and her TV show, so it’s no surprise she’s the female comedian taking part in today’s date. I hope to have info for you on it later tonight or tomorrow.
No, I still don’t know about Britt’s role on the show. I could find out today, or I might not find out for two months. I have no idea when I’ll know, but just know when I do, I’ll share it. As for today’s poll question, it’s very simple. Judging by past polls and tweets, I think I know who will win out on this. I’m just curious to see how wide the margin is:
-Good interview by a friend of mine Jessica Radloff talking to Chris Soules the other day about all things “Bachelor” and DWTS. Interesting to note that he almost gave his first impression rose to Kaitlyn instead of Britt. I guess when a girl tells you she wants you to plow the f**k out of her field during your first conversation, I guess that would grab your attention.
-Michelle Money did a Spreecast last week with 4 girls from Chris’ season: Ashley I., Ashley S., Jillian, and Samantha. I haven’t had a chance to watch all 90 minutes yet, but there definitely is some good behind-the-scenes stuff in it and Ashley S. coming off as completely normal. Check it out:
-I know this story is a couple weeks old, but it’s still probably the most important story of the day. I can’t commend Curt Schilling enough for taking down those trolls. They deserved exactly what they got. Truly disgusting.
-On the heels of that, word comes yesterday that Ashley Judd suffered some serious Twitter trolling after a picture of her kissing Dick Vitale surfaced on social media Sunday. Now Ashley is pressing charges against them. Good. Hope they all suffer. As someone who’s had to deal with cyber harassment for coming on 2 ½ years now at levels that none of you would believe, I’m all for anything that makes these trolls suffer in some way. And no, I’m not talking about people tweeting at me saying my column sucks, or my spoilers are wrong, etc. Not even close.
-Nell Kalter’s final Vanderpump Rules recap of the season is now up. She’s done an excellent job and will be back tmrw with her RHOBH recap. As long as she wants to continue to do these recaps, she will be doing them. Glad I added her to the site this year.
-Of course, I don’t watch VR, but just seeing this story of someone having a sex tape, should I really be surprised? Probably not. Should any of us? Wouldn’t it be more of a disappoint if one of those people DIDN’T have a sex tape?
-I’ve never watched a single episode of “Keeping up with the Kardashians,” or “Kourtney and Khloe,” or “Kim Does NY,” or whatever these shows are called. But if I know one thing about these families in reading tabloid stories practically every day, it’s one thing: Scott likes to party. A lot. Like, more than a guy with a couple kids should. In a related story, Scott Disick is now headed to rehab in Costa Rica. Wait, Costa Rica? They’ve got a “Promises” down there? Seems to me like he’s headed down there to party harder.
-As if the people in this family couldn’t get more insufferable, Kanye decided yesterday to just start tweeting naked pics of Kim and wanted to see if he could bring the word “swish” back into American culture. Just go away dude. And these aren’t really naked pics anyway. We’ve seen every part of your wife already, so her covering up does nothing. Besides, Ray J already exposed her long before you did. How’s that feel?
-And to go along with more of the Kardashians exposing themselves, here’s Kim walking around yesterday in see through pants. I mean, for her this is basically G-rated. I think children in 5th grade are even allowed to view pictures of Kim like this. When on the same day her husband is tweeting out naked pictures of her, is it really a story if Kim is walking around in see through pants? Of course it is. It’s Kim. If she sneezed, it would make national news. And her Kleenex would probably auction off somewhere for $10,000.
-Never did I think when I re-started “Daily Links” this week that Hilary Duff would appear in the first two columns. Yesterday it was her taking a selfie in her bra and underwear, and today it’s her telling some mag she lost her virginity to Joel Maddon. She was 16 and he was 10 years older. I think Hilary Duff might becoming my new favorite celebrity.
-Comedy Central has released this clip from the Bieber roast in efforts to promote the broadcast on March 30th. I’m sure more will be coming out in the next couple weeks, but Roastmaster General Jeff Ross definitely wasn’t kind:
-However, a couple Paul Walker jokes were made at the roast and Comedy Central has now decided they will be cut from the broadcast. Always a fine line at these roasts as to what’s considered too distasteful. Guess these two jokes crossed the line. Also didn’t help that Ludacris was there and wasn’t thrilled.
-This could be my favorite story of the day. Patrick Schwarzenegger was vacationing, he gets caught by paps all over some chick including taking body shots off her, then he goes to the “she’s totally my best friend from college” card. I have a few female friends. Probably more so in college than I do now. But I can tell you at no time would you have ever seen me engaged with them in this way. Nice try, Patrick. Expect the Miley/Patrick break up press release coming any minute.
-Amanda Bynes really seems to doing better, no? Ok, maybe not. But hey, if we’re not getting any weird Amanda Bynes social media activity at least once a week, are we really living?
