Major news yesterday. Huge. And no, absolutely nothing to do with anything that happened on BIP 2 or “After Paradise.” No, the news of the day in my eyes was Jennifer Love Hewitt pining for a sequel to “Can’t Hardly Wait.” Don’t you dare toy with my emotions like that J-love. Don’t. You. Dare. It’s bad enough you went and got yourself knocked up by your “Client List” co-star, then magically decided to marry him and pop out another kid and stomp on my heart. However if you’re gonna bring this up, you better follow through. I wanna see a grown up Amanda Beckett and what she’s done since high school. Obviously there’s no way she ended up with that dweeb Preston. Hell, she probably went running back to Mike Dexter and got knocked up by him and now she’s a stay at home mom with a 3, 2, and 1 year old. That’s my guess. Whatever the case, make the sequel. I always jump on Hollywood for completely being unoriginal and never having any new good ideas, but all will be forgiven if you give us a “Can’t Hardly Wait 2.” It would probably end up being the greatest sequel ever made and I would make sure that everyone in America went and saw it. And by the way, if you haven’t seen the original, go buy it, download it, rent it, whatever. You’ll thank me later.
Since they never even got to the cocktail party last night, let alone the rose ceremony, you might wanna get caught up on what happens at the next rose ceremony. It gets kinda confusing. So here are your episode-by-episode spoilers.
Now a few of you have been tweeting and emailing about the status of some of these people’s relationships since the show ended. I know social media can be a tricky thing, and if two people take a picture together somehow they’re automatically a couple. Not quite. Here’s the latest I can give you.
-No, Carly and Dan are not dating.
-Yes, Carly and Kirk did break up on the show and are not together right now.
-Nick Peterson and Samantha are still together.
-Tenley is not dating anyone, although she definitely wishes she was with Ben H. And no, she’s not going on his season.
-Tanner and Jade are still engaged.
-The only real change from the ending, is Cass and Justin have since broken up and she’s definitely now seeing Jonathan.
-As mentioned last week, Ashley S. got back together with some guy from college right after filming and she’s pretty much separated herself from the franchise.
Those are the ones I get asked the most about, so if you have any others, feel free to ask. But as far as I know, no one else is together with anyone else from the show. There are JJ/Juelia rumors floating around, but I don’t believe those are true either. JJ is playing the field my friends. Oh is he ever. Good lord.
One of the main producers of the “Bachelor” gave a bogus interview to E! about the process they go through when picking the next “Bachelor.” So much BS in these answers it’s sickening. EVERY season the fans are torn on who they like. Quit pretending like last season was the only one where the audience was torn. Please. Every person who makes it into the final 4 has their own fan base. And enough with the, “our contestants were torn too.” Ummm, you mean the contestants that you personally invite back to final casting after knowing who they’re interested in? Just more propaganda from the show that shows how much they lie and deceive their viewers, all while pretending they care about them.
If you haven’t read Sharleen’s blog about Paradise, I suggest you do. It’s now the only one I read on a weekly basis. Always makes great points, well thought out, well written, and smart. Not to mention, she will always call the show out for their BS because she doesn’t care. Good stuff.
Ratings are in from the last couple nights, and the show continues to grow it’s audience. Sunday’s ratings were it’s best of the season with 4 million viewers and a 1.3 rating, up from 3.7 million and 1.2 the previous week. Last night drew its highest ratings of the season with 5.2 million overall viewers, and a 1.5 rating, up from 5 million and 1.4 rating last Monday. “After Paradise” actually went down 100k viewers from 3.3 million to 3.2 million last night, but the .8 rating has been the same all three weeks. Will probably get an uptick next week with the “official” announcement of the next “Bachelor.”
Nell Kalter’s RHOC recap is now up for your viewing. As you know, I don’t watch these shows, hence the reason someone else is recapping them. But what’s going on with Teresa Giudice? She’s doing interviews from prison? She’s coming back on the show right when she gets out of the clink? I swear these people cannot go a day without thinking what life would be like for them if, you know, they didn’t have cameras following them around 24/7.
Before I get to this week’s poll question, wanted to mention last week’s. For some reason, it was one of the most voted on questions we’ve ever had since I started doing this. Apparently Ashley I. strikes a real nerve with a lot of you. Over 18,000 people voted, and 71% of you don’t like her. Pretty resounding answer I’d say. Anyway this week, I’m basically stealing the poll question they asked on “After Paradise” last night. I know where this answer is headed, I’m just curious how many vote and how lopsided it gets. Here you go:
