“Reader Emails,” Josh’s Mom Talks About the Edit, & Your Reality Steve Trivia Contest w/ Video Answers

Not a whole hell of a lot to recap regarding last night’s show, but a few points to make:

-The biggest thing brought to my attention the last couple days has been Josh’s and Amanda’s tweets regarding something editing isn’t showing you regarding Josh “stealing” Amanda from Nick. Well, Mama Murray came to the rescue this morning and put it out there what all the fuss is about. Here’s what she wrote on her FB page:


And believe it or not, that’s actually accurate. That’s what happened. Nick liked Amanda, but he was there for Jen. As I mentioned when I gave you the spoilers, you figured they were going to make a big deal out of Josh “stealing” Amanda from Nick. I wouldn’t necessarily call it stealing. Just more so than they’re gonna play up the “Josh got the girl over Nick again” angle, when in reality, he really didn’t. I mean, in a sense that Nick had a date with her first then Josh arrived and was attached at the hip to her from then on, yeah, I guess. But the show is making it worse than it actually was. Hence the reason I never even bothered covering that part in yesterday’s recap, since it’s overplayed.

-Now, did Josh and Amanda need to suck face the whole episode? No. I think that looks worse than the whole “stealing Amanda” angle. It’s not necessary. Granted, I’m sure there were plenty of times where their faces weren’t stuck to each other, but you can’t control the edit. The show wants to make it known they were close the whole time and in the process, they are making all the viewers vomit while watching them swap spit.

-Yes, Carly and Evan are still together and engaged. Say what you want, but I have no idea how Evan is taking this. I saw Carly did show a tad of remorse last night on Twitter when she posted this:

…but still, no guy in Evan’s position can possibly be happy watching that back. Well, unless of course you want to capitalize on endorsements and social media marketing and REALLY want to get married bad, well then, I guess you’ll put up with anything. To me, that’s not enough for me to want to deal with someone like that. But then again, I live in reality and I’m not them, sooooooo….

-I honestly have no idea why Sarah would keep someone like Daniel over Christian. Doesn’t make a whole hell of a lot of sense, and usually when that’s the case, producer involvement has a lot to do with it. I don’t know if that happened in this particular case, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it did. For some, Daniel is comedic value for the season because of his mindless rambling about nothing and Christian just wasn’t a dominant enough character on his season, or this one, to justify him sticking around. But hell if I know.

-As for what the hell Evan was doing trying to steal Amanda away from Josh, that seemed 100% producer driven. Like, why? What possible signals did she give him to think he had a remote chance with her? Usually when I see a girl’s tongue firmly implanted in another’s guy’s mouth for hours on end, I’m probably staying away from her as a potential mate. Now, Evan will no doubt stir up the Andi stuff next week with Josh since, well, that’s why they wanted Josh on the show. To bring out the Andi stuff and get him all fired up. So I think Evan going after Amanda is more a just a byproduct of having him confront Josh over the Andi allegations and not because he actually thought he had a chance.

-Besides the Josh and Amanda tweets, the most asked question from last night that I got was, “Is Chris Harrison not hosting ‘After Paradise’ this season?” My answers is I don’t know. Sean and Michelle really never said if that was permanent or not. I guess we’ll find out next week. I actually think that show could work if they structured it better. Really? Did we need 5 contestants bunched together on the couch answering questions? Have Lace and Chad out there and give them 2 or 3 segments. That was somewhat interesting. But there were too many moving parts and not enough time given to things people wanted to hear about.

-Cut out the stupid poll questions, and get rid of Skyping with fans. No one cares. If you want to Skype with occasional celebrity, I get it. But random fan watching parties who are put on the spot and really have nothing say? No thanks. Unless they’re going to plug my site or the spoilers, it seems kinda silly and very under produced.

-I think next week, things will get interesting with the arrival of Caila, Jen, and Ashley I. That’ll bring some of the goods. But the biggest question will probably still remain, “Does Josh let Amanda up for air to breathe or will he keep sucking her face until it loses all circulation and turns blue?” Tune in next week!

    So at this point they are what, like 4-5 days into the filming of the show? And Carly is disgusted by Evan, hates kissing him, and broke up with him or whatever so she could find someone shes actually interested in. But they will be engaged in like less than 2 weeks? They are both clearly messed up and desperate. Sure she can change her mind and decide shes actually into him, but I dont buy it, I think shes just too desperate and lonely and willing to take whatever she can get. Ive certainly never been repulsed by a guy and then decided to marry him weeks later.

    As for Amanda, what Steve wrote about her wanting to move to Atlanta with Josh makes me so mad. I know people with kids can move, but I think its really wrong to move the kids across the country away from their father, unless hes a horrible parent, which I havent heard anything about him being. She doesnt need to move for a job or something, and what is Josh doing in Atlanta thats so important he cant move? I’m assuming its because hes too egotistical to really consider changing his life to be with this woman he claims to love.

    According to Catherine, Sean is cohosting this season of the after paradise or whatever it’s called.

    If I’m not mistaken I think Amanda did explain to Ben that her daughters’ father is basically a pig of a man, and again, I could be mistaken, but I think he’s not in their lives at all. Not saying this makes it right for her to make the move to Atlanta. Frankly less disruption in her kids’ lives would be in their best interest. However Amanda has made it abundantly clear she acts solely on what is in HER best interest or she wouldn’t have left her kids, again, to chase fame on TV and worsen it further by publicly sucking face with someone reputed to be a rage-aholic and borderline abusive. Not to mention getting engaged without first seeing how he fits into her life with her children. She’s a narcissistic, selfish dingbat.

    Regarding the twins you can tell them apart by their noses. Emily may or may not have had a nose job, but Hailey’s is noticeably bigger.

    Carly seems to have mastered the more asshole than funny concept. She is the queen of that with this franchise.

    The engagements are so fake. Wonder how much they got paid to pretend that at the end?

    I forgot you said it on After Paradise ( I think Sean) but it was mentioned that there was a spoiler/rumor that three couples were engaged. So they are mentioning RS more and more.

    The Evan/Amanda story line is so fake and forced. I r\thought it was just a fake out that he was thinking about Amanda, but would actually try for Carly again, I was fooled. Dang that Carly is a B.

    How about those “clown” poets (Jared and Evan) at the end of Tuesday’s episode? The first line is “Two roads DIVERGED in a yellow wood” not “…divulged…” and it was written by Frost, not Thoreau.

    Haley always repeats what Emily says, that’s how you tell them apart. They are entertaining though, I do agree.

    It’s amazing how Evan has evolved from “the guy who looks like Hitler” to the guy who tweaks Chad and is basically unable to get liquored up, horny girls to get interested in him. Maybe he is pining for a return to the Hitler analogy days. It might be better for his street cred.

    Oh…. and I’d be remiss in not saying that this site is still horrible. If I stay on this site for more than five minutes, it crashes. Completely unprofessional.
