The Bachelorette: Another Happy Couple on a Cliff

I'm not gonna lie - after last night's Bachelorette, I don't really know what to think. My head is swirling with questions, my heart is hurting.

The Bachelorette: Craig R. Tells All (and the Other Guys Sit There)

Before the hurricane of tears that will be next week’s season finale of The Bachelorette, Monday night gave us one last chance to revisit some of our favorite men who sadly didn’t receive a rose from Ali. While the only people we wanted to see some faces were strategically missing (ahem: Justin R., Frank, and Evil Craig M.), the ones that were present were all smiles.

The Bachelorette: Another One Bites the Dust

Come. On. Come on! Did I miss the memo? Was last night’s Bachelorette episode actually Frank’s screen test for a new Nicholas Sparks film? One more silent tear and I would have been begging for mercy. That entire subplot was - am I allowed to say it? - so freakin’ fake. I’m insulted Chris Harrison would try and pass that off as reality. Shame on you!

The Bachelorette: Ali Meets the Parental Units

Those of you who follow what I write for College Candy (here’s lookin’ at you, Mom) may know that I’m a fan of the open letter. Tonight I have been inspired, once again, to compose one such masterpiece of the written word in honor of our Bachelorette, Ali. Here goes.

5 Not-So-Celebrity Lives I’m Lusting After

Since we’re well into the lazy days of July, I have no doubt that by now you’ve taken in your fair share of reruns and reality TV. Between puttering back and forth from a boring job at the mall and babysitting the kids down the street, you’re bound to slip into that coma only a comfy couch and summer television can bring.

Q&A With Craig R. From The Bachelorette

True story: after Craig R. got sent home on The Bachelorette two weeks ago, I was a slight mess. On the one hand, I felt so bad for the guy. He had to cover himself in olive oil and wrestle men in tight black pants on national television...and he still got the boot. And he looked so sad. So, so sad.

The Bachelorette: Rated R’s Got a Secret

I’m going to resist titling this week’s Bachelorette report “Why I Should Be Selected as the Next Bachelorette” and not proceed into all the reasons why this season is kind of lackluster and how I would really do a better job. Trust me, it would be a riveting read (much like the season I have planned for myself), but I’ll spare you just this once.

The Bachelorette: Kasey Just Wants to Guard and Protect Ali’s Heart…. Now in Iceland

“I’m trying to be the man of her dreams. That’s why I got this tattoo - to be someone.” And so began Kasey’s downward spiral on the latest episode of The Bachelorette, which was, without a doubt, the most entertaining part of last night's episode.

The Bachelorette: Kasey Really Wants to Guard and Protect Ali’s Heart

If last night's episode of The Bachelorette taught me one thing it's that mental health tests are not part of the screening process for the bachelors, because Kasey is crazy. Granted, the kid didn't attempt suicide like those teasers led us to believe, but after seeing that hot mess on his wrist, I'm thinking it's way worse.

The Bachelorette: Justin Really Likes Ali, OK?

It’s about that time again, ladies. No, Lindsay Lohan isn’t back to hitting the bottle, it’s Monday night and that means roses, champagne, and a new episode of The Bachelorette! Like a devoted fan, I cleared my evening schedule and prepared for two hours of wishing Ali would just offer her final rose to Chris Harrison (sheesh!). Of course my dream of dreams didn’t come true, but at least my current favorite bachelor made the cut.

The Bachelorette: Calendar Boys

After three glorious days of hopping from the beach to happy hour to the strobe of light of the dance floor, I finally returned last night to reality and reality TV. What better way to cap off Memorial Day 2010 than with two hours of The Bachelorette? I was scared I might not make it through the gridlock Jersey shore traffic in time for the show, but stopped to ask myself, “What would Chris Harrison do?”

The Bachelorette By The Numbers

Well, The Bachelorette happened. A whole two hours of it. There was a lot to digest in 120 minutes (and I’m not talking about the entire box of crackers I consumed while watching), so I’m just going to break it down by the numbers. I can’t really remember all those dudes' names anyway.

The Bachelorette: It’s Slim Pickin’ for Ali

Tonight rings in another season of The Bachelorette and, in a completely new move, it promises to be the Most Dramatic Season Ever. Ali Fedotowsky, 25, is returning after she ditched (and then got ditched by) country boy and future wife beater, Jake Pavelka, last season. Wait, am I the only one who sensed a whole bunch of repressed anger under that all-American veneer?
