The Bachelorette finale happened last night, while you were probably somewhere not caring. AND, in case you missed it last week too, basically Des’s number-one-boo was NOT IN LOVE WITH HER and bolted home while she sat in piles of tears on a dock. So, she had two dudes left (whom she’s not in love with) and everyone (no one) was like Whaaaa?!
OH MAN. THOSE WERE THE GOOD OLD DAYS.
Since this finale was a two-parter (thank God), this episode STARTED with a finale rose ceremony, where Des didn’t have to actually send anyone home because the love of her life had already left on his own accord. During the “ceremony,” Chris was looking normal-dude aggravated that she was clearly crying because she missed ANOTHER GUY. And Drew was all, I wonder if I can collect her tears and turn them into Des-lotion. Read more
Holy bonkers, y’all. The Bachelorette got OFF THE CHAIN last night. We’re talking, like, this should have been the only episode in this entire season, bonkers. We’re not going to do a traditional five point recap because the only recap is the fact that BROOKS DOESN’T LOVE DES AND WHAT THE HELL IS GOING TO HAPPEN NOW????
Okay, so let me break it down for you:
Des went on two FANTASY SUITE dates with Drew and then Chris, and nothing at all interesting happened, except probably some behind-the-scenes heavy petting, and both dudes wildly professing their love for her while she secretly pretended she was dry humping Brooks.
The nominations for the 2013 Primetime Emmys came out last week. So, over the past week, I gathered some of my friends who know TV the best to share their thoughts on the nominations, category-by-category. So, for a full list of the nominees along with commentary from me and some friends, check out our latest roundtable. You’ll laugh. You’ll agree. You’ll disagree. Weigh in with a comment!
With the All-Star Game and NBA season over, the dog days of summer are upon us. It’s hot, there is a bit over a month until football, and there’s not a lot of great new TV on. So this week’s Roundtable will provide some suggestions for how you can entertain yourself while sipping on your sweet tea and trying to stay cool.
Feel free to answer any or all of these three questions for the roundtable.
- Which TV show would you recommend people should “binge-watch”? Whether it’s on Netflix or not, which show should people spend a week or few catching up on in a short period of time?
- What’s your guilty pleasure TV show? Which show are you kind of ashamed of watching, but you know if more people actually gave it a try, they’d be hooked too?
- What’s your favorite movie that no one has ever heard of? Which movie is that you love so much, but you’re shocked that most people have probably never heard of it?
In the era of the internet, social media, and 24/7 cable news, we have more coverage about celebrities and quicker spins to burn celebrities at the stake after scandals. Also, though, as we’ve seen with some movie stars and some politicians, returns to redemption can happen a lot quicker than in the past.
Regardless, celebrity scandals have always been a part of American history and have become more prominent every year over the past decade.
So this week’s roundtable is a simple one. Paula Deen and Amanda Bynes are the most recent celebrities to fall from the public’s graces. This week, we ask you…

“I’m hoping for a proposal, and from Brooks!” (DID I HEAR THAT RIGHT?)
Des looking freaked out, because DUH.
WHOA WHOA WHOA. I missed one week of nobody’s favorite show, and there are like three dudes left. OKAY, kidding, there are totally five —which means that next week brings the HOMETOWN DATES. Last week (so sorry for my absence, y’all), Des sent home James (THE WORST) and Juan Pablo, because apparently she wants to practice abstinence for THE REST OF HER LIFE. This week, Des had some former Bachelor pals visit (America’s fave z list celebs) including WhiteLesley from Sean’s season, and other people that I didn’t like as much. AND, all the dudes started telling Des they love her, even though we know she probs only loves Brooks. OKAY. Highlights!
