One more week!

This weeks "Women Tell All" just made me wish it was next week already. I was bored through most of it except the drama when the girls all told Natalie that they didn't like her. Awesome. Even awesomer when she tried to make excuses for being a dumb, superficial, too tan, airhead and Chris totally called her out on it. Love it. 

Just a few observations I made while watching the show...did Shannon get a spray tan minutes before the recording? She looked ridiculous. That fake tan just made her teeth look whiter and bigger. Stephanie's appearance never seems to amaze me but her rockstar hairdo tonight was a bit much. Just throw on your bonnet and nightie and accept that you are old. I thought she was so nice and sincere to begin with but now I'm over it and want to see some negative emotions out of her...I know they're in there somewhere. Nikki surprised me tonight with how vocal she was about hating Natalie. I thought after seeing herself on national television she might quiet down so as to make less of a fool of herself. She did hide the sideburns though and for that, I give her two thumbs up. Jillian looked somewhat leprechaunish in the emerald get up with the black santa claus belt. Please don't let her be the next bachelorette. Or maybe do so I can give up my addiction...I don't know if I could sit through that season. 

I'm starting to accept the possibility that it could possibly be Molly next week. I've already thought it out and hopefully it's a win/win situation for me. If Molly wins, maybe Melissa will get to be the next bachelorette. If Melissa wins, we all go home happy and realize Jason is smarter than we gave him credit for. If Deanna wins, you just really can't plan better television. I hope she doesn't, but wow, would that be a shocker! I'm curious to see what causes Jason to bawl his eyes out on the balcony. I wish it was Monday already.

Oopsy Daisies

This is the view Trey should have had today. I am usually his travel agent for all of his trips to AZ and any trips his guys need to take. Until last night, I was a really good travel agent. I got online last night to find out when his flight landed today from Phoenix. I had to double take as I looked at the time...4:50pm on Sunday, March 22nd. I was pretty sure I booked his flight for February 22nd but turns out that I didn't, I was just a month off. So I guess I won't see my husband for another month. Whoops.

Sayonara Jillian!

So far I'm undefeated with picking who is going home next. Feels pretty good to be this intuitive. Last week I was a little nervous that Jillian might be pulling ahead but luckily her skankiness tonight lost her the battle and helped me pull down another victory. Parental discretion advised...would have been a nice warning before the hot tub session. I wish they would've warned me so I could have left the room...that was awkward. That business is meant for Showtime, not ABC. Yikes. Despite the hot tub scene, Jillian lost me the moment she pulled out the hot dogs, which I'm pretty sure was the very first night so I can't say that I'm sad to see her go. In fact, I will not miss how often she says "like" and "best friend" or HOW she says "again." Bluh.

Tonight, Molly proved that she is an absolute dud when it comes to anything serious. She can have a great time til emotions start to come out and then she realizes that she has none! Their little dinner was so rough for me to watch...say something, anything! Speaking of saying something, I love how when the girls express themselves to Jason he doesn't say anything in return, just leans in for yet another kiss. Sorry Mall Ball but your turn to go is coming, just don't cry like your dad advised. Great advice Dad...looks like being a dud runs in the family. 

Continuing with the "I'm not allowed to really tell you how I feel so I'll just kiss you" side of Jason,  Melissa could barely finish telling Jason that she loved him before he smashed his face into hers. With all the other girls, he waits out the confession until he realizes he has nothing to say back, so he goes in for the kiss. I think tonight told the world how Jason really feels and who will be left standing in 2 weeks. Congratulations Melissa, you did it! And your parents could not care less. They probably won't even come to the wedding because there will be real, live people there. Just the thought makes the poor hermits cringe. 

I guess this season there is going to be an "After the Final Rose" episode where something happens that was so intense they didn't film it in front of an audience. Here's my guess...Jillian is pregnant with Jason's baby after that steamy sesh in the hot tub. Ty is going to have a brother/sister! Actually, if it's not that, I'm guessing Melissa is going to dump Jason on national television because of that scene with Jillian in the hot tub. I know I would. 

I was really hoping Deanna was going to make an appearance tonight. This show loves the drama and so do I. Keep it coming.

You Guessed It, Another Bachelor Recap

Last night's show  was anything but comfortable...I'd say pretty awkward and pretty awesome. It's my theory that the producers of the Bachelor talk to the families beforehand and tell them to meet and greet Jason with something that is uniquely their own little weird family thing. Why else would Jillian's dad wrap a Canadian flag around him and her grandma make him wear Canadian boxers while they sing their National Anthem? Why would Molly's weird mom make everybody wear those stupid hats and make Jason draw that ridiculous picture? (What you don't see is that Jason played beer pong with Molly's family for a few hours...I would too if I had to hang out in that house). Why would Naomi's mom make everyone have a hula hoop contest? Who has that many hula hoops laying around? And why in the world would she collect a dead bird off the road to bring home, refrigerate and wait for Jason to bury? I loved Jason's facial expressions throughout the show because you know he thought it was just as awkward as we all did. I don't think families are normally this weird and that's why I think the producers have something to do with this. Melissa's parents probably didn't want to go along with the "just do weird things, it's good television" idea so they bailed. And we got to see what a normal night should've been like...dinner, talking, playing pool, hanging out...no eulogies, hula hoops, or stupid hats. 

With this episode, I think Jillian is making her move to the top. She still bugs me so I hope I'm just seeing things, but it seemed like she pulled ahead of Molly this week...or maybe the editing of the footage just wants us to believe that. Either way, I'm glad Underbite is gone. Her family could not have been any weirder. I love that her dad gave Jason a huge religious talk with 2 slot machines in the background. That talk was definitely the most awkward. I'm surprised Naomi's dad didn't try to baptize Jason on the spot. And Naomi was right, she should've discussed her faith with Jason before this trip so he wouldn't have been so caught off guard by all the reincarnated  whackos. 

I feel bad that Jason didn't get to meet Melissa's parents because, as you know, I want her to win and it's a little discouraging for me. However, when I told Trey this, he said something like, "Oh, so they did they appropriate thing," which was not wanting to meet their possible son-in-law on national television where no one could be themselves. It is weird, though, that her friends don't even know Melissa's parents. Are they recluse? What's the deal? Why is Melissa normal? Parents like that usually have weird kids, don't they?

On a better note, Deanna will be coming back soon, which is what I've been waiting for all season. Talk about drama! Looks like Jason bawls like an absolute girl, so we'll see what that's all about very soon. I'd still like Jillian to go home next week because I think Melissa will have a better chance going up against Molly. I'll keep my fingers crossed. 

Really quick, I wanna know what you think. Do you think Jason knows much earlier in the season who is going to be left standing in the end? I honestly would hope so. I don't like the idea of him getting kissy and snuggly with all of them and then just picking one in the end that he was 51% sure about where the loser was just 49%. If I were the one he proposed to, I'd want to know that he was totally into me the whole time and was just pretending with the others to keep the show going. Thoughts?

Dancing With The Stars

I don't normally watch Dancing With The Stars but I'm watching Regis & Kelly right now and they announced who the new "stars" would be this season. When they said "Shawn Johnson" I had to get online to verify. Turns out my favorite little Olympian is really going to be on the show. She was easily my favorite athlete to watch this past summer in the Olympics and I'm excited to see more of her with this show. Hopefully she'll wave and give the peace sign like she did throughout the entire Olympics. Such a cute little mouse. Starts March 9th for those who are interested. I don't really care for any of the other contestants, except maybe Steve-O, so you know who I'll be rooting for.

A New Addition To The Fam

I've been looking for a second puppy lately because Walter is extremely needy for my attention and I wanted to pawn him off on someone else. Enter Penny...
She is the calmest, cutest dog in the world...what they call a "Morkie" which is basically just a stupid name for a Maltese/Yorkie mix. I decided that I like the mixed dogs better than the purebreds. Maybe it's the silly names they give them...like Maltipoo, or my personal favorite, Cockapoo. Genius. 

Walter has welcomed Penny into our home with open arms and has not left her alone for one single second. She must be so annoyed by now but she seems to put up with him pretty well.

The Bachelor Recap

Okay so it's no surprise that Mother Teresa (Stephanie) is gone. Jason is a t-shirt and jeans kind of guy and Stephanie has a perfect Barbie outfit for every hour of the day. I've never seen so many matching sets in my life. Either she has too much money and just doesn't know what to spend it on or she knows she looks too old and hopes her clothes can knock off a couple years. I knew she wouldn't make it to the end but I have to admit I wasn't ready to see her go...mostly because I HATE Naomi and it should've been her turn. Luckily, we won't have to see much of Eva Mendez past next week. I'm confident she'll be getting a swift kick in the bum. Don't let the door hit you on the way out. 

Do you think I spend too much time caring about this stupid show? Maybe I do, maybe I don't. I have a competitive spirit and I can't help it. When a girl I hate gets sent home, I feel a small victory inside. So I guess I don't care about Jason Mesnick and his future ex-fiance, I care about whether I picked the right girl from the start or not. So far, I'm on the right track. Next week, goodbye Naomi. Following week, goodbye Jillian. Finale...Molly or Melissa? Goodbye Molly. You heard it here first people.
