The Bachelorette 11 - Kaitlyn/Britt

The “Bachelorette” Kaitlyn Episode 6 Recap Incl Lots of News & Notes, & What Other Couples are Joining Sean & Catherine on Their New Reality Show?

Once again, quite a few things to get to before today’s recap which has a little clarification about how these next few episodes will play out. That’s on page 5. But first a few things to cover as I’ll have footage of my appearance on “Good Morning Texas” this morning talking about the show, your RHOC recap from Nell Kalter, a pregnancy in the “Bachelor” family, Kaitlyn doing a Q&A today, Chris and Kaitlyn’s blogs from this morning, ratings, Shawn & Cupcake hanging in Nashville this weekend, a poll question inspired from “Reader Emails,” and who some of the other couples with Sean & Catherine “Celebrity Marriage Boot Camp.” Plus coming tomorrow, I will have some news on “Bachelor in Paradise” with a couple casting additions that weren’t on the list I gave you last week, AND some talk about Britt and Brady and where they’re at. And if that wasn’t enough, gonna get you caught up on UnREAL from last night as I’ll post that separately about 30 minutes after this column goes up. So yeah, A LOT to get to today.

First off, here was my appearance this morning on “Good Morning Texas.” They usually have me on a couple times a season to talk about the show, but I’d say they picked a great time since last night’s episode was the most talked about one on social media for sure. Enjoy…(video doesn’t seem to load on tablets. CLICK HERE for the link to the page):

Your RHOC recap from Nell Kalter is now posted. I don’t know what’s happening on this show, but it looks like a doozy. And one quick mention, former “Survivor” recapper for this site Scott Ottersen will be back covering “Big Brother” this year so look forward to that. It’s good to have Scott back. Hope you enjoy his recaps when that starts up.

Former “Bachelor” contestant Kacie Gaston (former Kacie B) announced on Father’s Day that her and her husband Rusty are expecting so congratulations to them. Funny to think that she actually came back to be on Sean Lowe’s season, isn’t it?

I thought this was funny. After her appearance on GMA this morning, Kaitlyn will be doing a Q&A with Yahoo today:

This is hilarious because since it’s monitored by them, and they’ll only allow pre-approved questions, she’s not gonna tell you anything you already don’t know. I’m sure every person who does ask a question wants to know about the snapchat video, but they aren’t going to touch that with a 10 foot pole. Not to mention, I’m guessing they’ll let zero trolls through who want to slut shame her. Kind of a pointless Q&A when the ONE question everyone wants to know about will be avoided. But whatever.

Ratings are in from last night and the show drew it’s best rating since the premiere in the 18-49 demo with a 2.0. The premiere drew a 2.1 Overall it drew 6.6 million viewers. For those that want to compare, Andi’s 6th episode last season drew 6.3 million and a 1.8 rating, so Kaitlyn out did her like she has been most of the season.

Chris Harrison’s Yahoo blog is up and I’m kinda stunned how he really didn’t dive into the Nick/Kaitlyn sex thing like I thought he would. Pretty tame if you ask me. As of this posting, Kaitlyn’s blog for isn’t up, but she did do a feature story that will run this week talking all about the sex with Nick. Same company line that she’s not ashamed by what she did.

I know a lot of you are reading the tabloids and they’re basically grabbing any pictures they can of Shawn in the vicinity of any girls in Nashville and claiming he’s cheating on Kaitlyn with her. Not happening. Sorry. Here was Shawn this past Sunday actually hanging with Cupcake outside a bar called Two Bits in Nashville. So yeah, this is probably more what Shawn’s life is like in Nashville and not what you read in tabloids whose sole purpose is come up with salacious headlines that’ll get people talking:

Our poll question this week is inspired by a “Reader Email” from last week:

And finally, last week I broke the news to you that Sean & Catherine are currently filming “Celebrity Marriage Boot Camp” that airs on WE TV. Not sure when the show starts but probably not for a few months. I think a season is currently airing or just ended. Anyway, I found out a couple more couples that will be on the show:

-Mama June and Sugar Bear from “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo”
-Benzino and Althea from “Love and Hip Hop Atlanta”
-Some couple from the Bad Girls Club
-Sundy Carter from “Basketball Wives.” Not sure who her man is. I know her baby daddy is former NBA player Larry Hughes, so maybe it’ll be him. I have no idea, I just know she’s on it with someone.

Wow. Hell of a cast I tell ya’, but pretty par for the course with this show. This is exactly the type of shows they pull from. When Sean and Catherine are your most popular and well known couple on your season, well then…uhhhh yeah. Have fun with that. Anyway, onto the recap…

    Lots of good posts here. RS’s comments were extreme but it sounds like he’s addressing the extreme comments about Kaitlyn on other websites. Of course people have reason to question Kaitlyn’s maturity, just as they’ve had reason to question the maturity of some past Bachelors.

    Kaitlyn seems to think the only kind of intimacy is physical intimacy. What about emotional intimacy – I don’t see her asking any relevant questions to her suitors to try to get to know them better as people and to see if there are common values and goals and if they actually like (not just lust) each other. Past bachelorettes were good at generating relevant and meaningful conversations with the men. Watching and listening to Kaitlyn is like seeing a 15 or 16 year old girl as others have mentioned – it’s hard to believe she’s 30. This season more than any other season of The Bachelorette is indeed a train wreck. But then they’ve had plenty of train wreck seasons with the Bachelor series so maybe it was time to bring on an immature Bachelorette to even things up.

    So…. Having sex in the fantasy suite is OK, but before it’s not?? Uh, on.

    Making fun of someone’s nose after calling out people for being cruel online seems a little hypocritical. But thanks for the recap – the show bores me to tears but reading about it is somewhat of a guilty pleasure. Cheers –

    Yes, giving one person an advantage over the others is unfair. Have sex before the FS is giving unfair advantage to someone and it’s a betrayal to someone who is actually in it for the right reasons.

    I would break up with someone who acted that way. I wouldn’t be able to trust the person. I just wouldn’t.

    The FS dates are a way for the lead to get to know the 3 in a more intimate way whether it be talking, etc. with no cameras.

    Kaitlyn made a fool out of herself with Nick. She brought this on herself. No one liked Ben for the same reason. At least he picked the girl he had sex with secretly.

    There are rules just like their are moral rules in society. If I had of had sex with someone while dating my husband, he would have every right to have dumped me in the early days.

    It shows lack of self control…lack of respect for others and lack of maturity to see the process for what it is.

    I respect Sean so much for how he did not lower his standards when he was Bachelor.

    @litfort04, thank you!
    @freeasabird, I agree with you again!
    @brick, perhaps you don’t see the “emotional intimacy” because the producers don’t want you to. Although, that statement isn’t entirely true. Some of the guys have shared some painful memories with Kaitlyn. So, TPTB will only show us what they want us to see. Not what you or I want to see.
    To those saying it’s disrespectful to the other contestants. uuummm….they aren’t exclusive until the FINAL ROSE. Everything and everyone is fair game until the season has officially ended.

    It makes me sad to see so many people think so lightly about hopping into the sack with someone on a whim. It’s called self control, people. If Kaitlyn can’t get her hormones under control in front of a camera with millions of people watching, how will she remain faithful to a boyfriend in a moment of weakness when the cameras aren’t there? She doesn’t care about the feelings of the guys, only her feelings at the “moment”. Life isn’t about living in the moment, but about thinking through your decisions and how they might affect another human being. I get that this is a TV show, but don’t play it off to be some beautiful, fairy tale romance. Kaitlyn is far from a pretty princess and Nick is no prince charming.

    Doesn’t matter if it’s “fair game”…it’s about integrity and doing the right thing.

    If you lot are down with lack of integrity; then society is going down the toilet and that saddens me.

    I would dump anyone who treated me with such a lack of regard for my humility. I expect more and my actions speak for it.

    @Kelsum…exactly!!! if someone has such a lack of self control, then how can you trust them to do the right thing in the near future. Maybe 10 years from now, sure, but in the next 5? No way would I trust.

    I judge men the same way. I demanded respect from my husband from day one. We got to know each other before it got physical.

    I would never take a gamble with someone who has a cavalier attitude towards sex.
