So tomorrow we dip out of the Bachelor Nation for our podcast guest as Jenny McCarthy will be joining me for podcast #36. And yes, already I had at least 5 people ask me about the vaccination stuff. No, it was never brought up, nor was it ever going to be. I’m not doing an expose on her. This wasn’t an interview to challenge her on her stance about something like that. I try to keep my interviews a little more light hearted. The fact that Jenny even agreed to do it was a bonus for me, so I’m not going to have her on and start badgering her. I hope you can see Jenny as more than that. It’s a fun interview, Jenny has always been good to me from the time she’s had me on her radio show, so I returned the courtesy to her. We were on a time limit, but when someone like Jenny McCarthy agrees to come on my podcast, I’m not demanding I get an hour or more with her. I take what she’ll give me, so it’s definitely shorter than past podcasts. But I think you’ll like it. I found her talk about Playboy and getting started in the business pretty interesting. So look for that tomorrow as I think you’ll enjoy it.
Former Nick Viall contestant Astrid Loch had herself quite an interesting interview yesterday with Entertainment Tonight. I had about 10 people email or tweet this yesterday within a couple hours of it posting, so yeah, this thing spread pretty quick. I mean, I know there are people who still doubt the spoiler of Rachel being engaged to Bryan, but for those that maybe don’t, just fast forward to the 28 minute mark of this interview:

I mean sure, maybe she’s taking Peter or Eric to Miami for an engagement party even though their families are in Wisconsin and Baltimore respectively. Sooooo yeah. A big thanks to Astrid for that. Granted, it’s something I’ve known since the first week of June but it’s always nice to get a spoiler slip up at some point during the season.
You see the video of a young DeMario hitting on Britney Spears that made the rounds yesterday. Here it is in case you missed it:
I’m stunned that Britney actually engaged as much as she did with some random fan all while getting harassed in a grocery store parking lot. And this was during the f***ed up Britney years. Still pretty funny though.
Speaking of DeMario (and Corinne for that matter), we know that both of them will be appearing at the reunion special at the end of Paradise. Yesterday it was announced each of them will get a sit down interview with Chris Harrison to discuss what happened that day. Based on how this reads, I think this is definitely separate from them appearing at the reunion show. It wasn’t exactly clear, but that’s my guess. Or, their sit down will taped earlier and it will be shown during the reunion show. I guess that’s a possibility as well. Either way, there is going to be plenty of attention given to what happened that caused filming to shut down for nearly two weeks.
Ok, lets get to your “Men Tell All” spoilers. Again, not a whole hell of a lot to get to here since the show is pretty much the same thing every season, but here’s the basics of what you need to know:
-Eric, Peter, and Bryan weren’t a part of the show.
-Lee and DeMario were both there.
-4 guys got called up to the hot seat: Dean, Adam, Kenny, and Lee. Dean talked about how he hasn’t spoken to his dad since the show ended, but he’s optimistic about the future. They showed behind the scenes clips of Adam and Rachel’s relationship since we basically never saw any of it on the show. They brought Kenny’s daughter out on stage as a surprise and he cried. Kenny never said he thought Lee was a racist, but was just constantly picking at him.
-The Kenny and Lee debate took over a majority of the show. Essentially they were all trying to get Lee to admit he’s a racist, and of course, he never did. They did show his old tweets on the video screen. Lee basically apologized, said he’s learning, wants to become more educated about things, be better person, etc.
-DeMario was only asked about his time on the show and nothing about BIP since that will be covered ad nauseum once the show begins. I’m not sure if what DeMario said about what happened on Rachel’s season will get shown because talked about how was set up by producers, this ex girlfriend was the one who wrote in to the show saying she knew him, he barely dated her, she was just a hookup, and she could never produce one picture with him because they were never that close. Can’t imagine they’ll show DeMario saying he was set up by producers, so lets see what happens with that.
-Whaboom and Blake were arguing at the beginning of the show over, well, exactly what they were doing on the show.
-There was no mention of Paradise at the MTA. Didn’t even show a preview for it or talk about it with the contestants who were in the audience. The ones that were there in attendance were: Alexis, Ben Z., Amanda, Raven, Jasmine, and Kristina.
-Rachel came out to address the guys and not a whole hell of a lot happened. Dean asked her about her saying she was falling in love with him then immediately cut him after that. Rachel said she was but that their relationship wasn’t on the level as it was with the others. This segment was said to be not all that exciting.
-Bloopers were shown.
-Soooooo yeah, that’s the basics. The Kenny/Lee stuff is talked about a lot, and race relations became the main topic of the show. So get ready for that.
