We’ve got a lot to get to before today’s recap once again. Remember, “Reader Emails” tomorrow and “Dr. Reality Steve” on Thursday. Already quite a few “Reader Emails” after last week’s mishap of not getting any of Monday’s and Tuesday’s emails in the column, and right now I believe I already have four “Dr. Reality Steve’s” ready to go. So get em’ in. I’m feeling very advice-y this week. Can’t imagine why. Anyway, today we have your blogs from Chris Harrison and Kaitlyn, last night’s ratings, your RHOC recap, another interview from our “Big Brother” recapper Scott Ottersen with contestant Zach Rance, a new BIP promo that aired last night, “Men Tell All” taping this weekend, a new poll question, and an answer you all need to hear regarding the “Crazy Days and Nights” blog a lot of you love to ask me about. Please pay attention to that one. It’s kind of important. Hope you all had a great 4th of July weekend. I spent most of it blowing my nose and being congested, so that was a blast I tell ya’. On to today’s information…
Here’s Chris Harrison’s weekly interview with TVGuide.com talking about Kaitlyn’s admission to Shawn and how he thought she handled it. Of course he backed her. What’s he supposed to say? Pretty much did the same thing on his Yahoo blog as well. As for Kaitlyn, she gave her thoughts on sex with Nick and telling Shawn on her People.com blog and if you’re good at reading between the lines, not like you needed any more proof, but it’s so painfully obvious she’s out to protect Shawn in this blog, she might as well just tell us she wrote it with Shawn right next to her.
Ratings are in from last night, and yet again, the show is trending upward. Drew a little less than 7 million viewers overall and a 2.0 rating in the 18-49 demo. Andi’s 8th episode last season (which was her overnight date episode), drew 6.8 million and a 1.8 rating. This was the most viewers for an episode this season since the premiere, which is usually par for the course. Once they whittle the contestants down, that’s when the casual fan starts tuning in, hence the uptick in viewers last night from last week.
Your RHOC recap from Nell Kalter is now up, so check that out when you can. I know some of you want Nell to write about every housewife season, but she has a life. I think. She can’t do that many. She’s at three shows right now, and for someone as busy as her to cover two Housewives franchises along with “Vanderpump Rules,” I commend her for it. Not an easy task to do just for fun.
Our “Big Brother” recapper Scott Ottersen has an interview today up with former contestant Zach Rance. A video interview he did while Zach was driving to the golf course nonetheless. So here you go:
From the second he walked into our television sets, we all knew we were going to like Zach Rance. From his eccentric ways, to his funny quips and his pink hat, he quickly became a fan favorite. However, being a fan favorite isn’t always the way to earn yourself the $500,000 check in the end, and he was eventually sent out the door by his best friend in the house, Frankie. I had the pleasure of doing a quick interview with Zach the other day, and let me just say I definitely Froot Loop Dingus’d this one. I may or may not have forgot to hit the record button at the very beginning of the “call.” Technology has to make it so difficult sometimes, but after the second question, I saw I didn’t hit the button and quickly switched it on, so in the end, at least some of it is on display for you to enjoy. He was kind enough to take time out of his day to speak with me, while he was driving, so since I didn’t want to watch him die live on camera, I made it as quick as I could, so go check it out.
And for those who didn’t know the many talents of Zach Rance included writing novels, well consider yourselves educated now and go buy his book on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Ghetto-Uprising-Zach-Rance-rancypants-ebook/dp/B00WH47R2G
And just in case you thought we were done, we’re not. The man is also gracing this earth with music. Check out his new song, “Sawagoo,” on Amazon, as well: http://www.amazon.com/Sawagoo-feat-D-Chamberz-Explicit/dp/B00RE0L1MK
Enough promotion here, let’s get to the stunted interview. Here it is in all it’s glory:
I know a lot of you are familiar with the CrazyDaysandNights.net website. It’s a gossip site that prints a bunch of rumors and innuendo that people love to immediately take as fact. Then twice a year (on 4th of July and New Year’s), he reveals the answers to some of his “Blind Items.” Well one in particular that he released this past weekend caught a lot of attention from the “Bachelor” world, and that was this rumor. I can absolutely tell you that is 100% false. None of that happened. In addition, for those that maybe don’t actually scroll down to the bottom and read his disclaimer (which I’m guessing is 99% of you), this is all you need to know about the “Crazy Days and Nights” website. It’s written right at the bottom of his own site. For those that don’t feel like going over there, I’ve cut and pasted it for you. Here’s what it says:
CRAZY DAYS AND NIGHTS IS A GOSSIP SITE. THE SITE PUBLISHES RUMORS, CONJECTURE, AND FICTION. IN ADDITION TO ACCURATELY REPORTED INFORMATION, CERTAIN SITUATIONS, CHARACTERS AND EVENTS PORTRAYED IN THE BLOG ARE EITHER PRODUCTS OF THE AUTHOR’S IMAGINATION OR ARE USED FICTITIOUSLY.

LINKS TO CONTENT ON AND QUOTATION OF MATERIAL FROM OTHER SITES ARE NOT THE RESPONSIBILITY OF CRAZY DAYS AND NIGHTS.
So now you have your answer. Lets hope none of you are ever hoodwinked by anything on that site ever again.
In case you missed last Wednesday’s post, here are all your “Bachelor in Paradise 2” episode-by-episode spoilers. EOnline posted the first promo of the season first promo of the season before the episode aired last night, then we saw it run during the last commercial break. Only :30 seconds, a lot of quick shots, but pretty much what you’d expect. And yes, that’s Ashley S. being transported into the paramedic van. That happened on Day 2 because of dehydration. Dan Cox went with her and got IV’s as well. Apparently like 5 people ended up in the hospital for exhaustion/dehydration at some point.
As mentioned three weeks ago, the “Men Tell All” tapes this weekend in LA. As is the case every season, when I get the spoilers from them, I’ll let you know. I might get them that night, I might get them the next day, or I might not get them at all. I usually do, but I think there was one recent season where I didn’t. You will know if/when I get them, because I will post them. My hope is post a Monday column with the MTA spoilers, but we’ll see. Stay tuned.
As for this week’s poll question, there were a lot I could’ve done. But some were too easy. Like, if I just did a standard “Are you Team Shawn or Team Nick,” I’m guessing it would’ve been a majority Team Shawn since you know she’s engaged to him. So I tried to think of something a little different regarding Kaitlyn telling Shawn about the sex. We knew she had to at some point, but what did you think of the timing?
