Reader Emails

“Reader Emails” & The Kelley Flanagan Fan Club Has Lost Their F-in Mind

What. A. Night. I’ll be honest, I didn’t get much work done last night working on some spoiler related stuff, so, while “Reader Emails” today is still pretty hefty, there’s so many I didn’t get to. I was all set to basically answer all the ones I received since about Monday when, well, stuff happened. I got to a few of them, but definitely not all. So the plan is in tomorrow’s podcast AND in the column, I will go over Peter’s spoiler for the season AND read the leftover “Reader Emails” I never got to today. There’s a few things to cover, kinda tell you how things came together, and just lay it all out there. Small details might be missing, but I have the overall picture of what went down I think pretty much nailed. I mean, when Peter started the season off by promoting that “my season won’t be spoiled by Reality Steve, and there’s a reason for it,” I thought he was a nut job. Because why would a lead say that when basically every season gets spoiled? And up to that point, I’d spoiled everything in his season up to the final 2. It was just a weird thing to say and kinda threw me off because it just didn’t make sense. However, I’m confident in things I’ve been told over the last 3 months, and with the 2 night finale coming up, I’ll lay it out there for you tomorrow. I just didn’t have time to do it today considering I was up past 1am last night taking care of some things on that end.

And you’ll clearly see I was up past 1am when you look at these screenshots I took of Instagram and Twitter DM’s that I received last night into this morning. I mean, WOOOOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWW. Every single photo you see below was sent to me between 10pm last night and roughly 7am this morning. Did the Kelley Flanagan Fan Club congregate last night or something? Was their objective to fire off as many DM’s to me as possible convinced that Peter is with Kelley? Do these people think before sending DM’s, or it’s just the first story they see regarding the show they just hit “send” without thinking? Anyway, the latest “hot” theory is that Peter is with Kelley because his family follows her on IG, and that’s why she wasn’t invited to the WTA. Ladies and gentleman, I present to you what I was inundated with for the last 12 hours. Enjoy…

My favorite is definitely “Peter got Kelley pregnant when they met before the show and that’s what Chris Harrison is telling him.” Really? When they met in AUGUST? You know, it’s March 4th right now, don’t you? This woman is 6 months pregnant?

Missing my bestie ??

A post shared by Kelley Flanagan (@kelleyflanagan) on

“Welllll, some women don’t show at 6 months, you never know.” “You know, it’s possible that she WAS pregnant and…” Stop it. Just stop. Save it. Peter is not with Kelley. Period. End of story.

Now we can use this as a lesson moving forward in future seasons. Just because someone’s family follows a contestant, it means absolutely nothing. Peter’s parents ONLY following Kelley and NO ONE else, and yet, Peter isn’t with Kelley. Lets put that silly social media theory to rest for good now. Moving on…

    The emails regarding the Bachelor Happy hour Podcast with Becca and Rachel. I totally agree!!! I disagreed with Rachel band Becca on just about every level and Chris Harrison was no better. The tone of the podcast mad me angry and they pretty much threw Maddison under a bus for having morals and standards.

    I come away from the podcast thinking both Rachel and Becca both slept with more than one man during their overnights and that’s one reason they were so horribly biased. Nick Viiall’s podcast was balanced and realistic to human nature. I completely agreed with him, it was excellent ….well done Nick! 🙂

    Mary Delgado was previously the oldest bachelorette. I think she was 34 or 35 on her season. Definitely was older than Rachel.

    Mary wasn’t the lead though. She was never Bachelorette.

    Kelley’s picture as “proof” that she’s not pregnant: The caption says “missing my bestie,” and in the picture is said bestie, which means THE PICTURE IS NOT RECENT.

    Literally saw Kelly at a club in Chicago 2 weekends ago during the All Star game. She was hammered and facetiming different guys while in the bathroom. Theres zero chance shes pregnant.

    I didn’t listen to the podcast, but am really disappointed to hear this about Rachel and Becca. Madison handled it well. She didn’t criticize Peter or the two women at all. It was just about Madison’s own values and beliefs.

    It’s terrible Rachel and Becca threw her under the bus, along with Chris Harrison. They should know better

    I’m really not liking Rachel much these days. She has nothing but negative things to say about the Bachelor franchise. She’s probably still pissed that ABC didn’t offer to televise and pay for her wedding, and this is her way of getting back. And all this preaching she does about bullying, yet she’s constantly throwing people under the bus. Isn’t that a form of bullying? Very hypocritical if you ask me. She acts a little too entitled for me.

    Joanne, I’ve listened to a few of their podcasts and they’re usually okay. This one was just horrid and left a nasty taste in my mouth, I don’t think I finished listening it was that bad.

    I could’ve written a paragraph or two about what I did hear, but seeing I’m such a hopeless typist on a phone with a mind of its own, I didn’t dare go there!

    Nick gave a fair and balanced view of Maddison/Peter, and the overnights etc. He also included a lot of behind the scenes info which was really interesting. 😉

    I was surprised to see Rachel on the WTA. Not because the segment wasn’t needed, meaningful, etc., but Rachel has been critical of ABC post-Bachelorette. The franchise has thin-skin and I would have thought Rach was persona-non-grata as a result. Glad to see Rachel on the show though!

    As far as Becca goes… to heck with her — she operates under the misguided notion that being a strong, independent, woman means you need to be rude and judgmental. We see it in her political IG posts and how she handled Garrett’s liking of memes online. Arie did the right things runny away from that mess.

    For Becca being a self-styled progressive, informed, woke, etc., she sure treated Madison poorly and owes her an apology.
