Andi Dorfman Throws Serious Shade At “The Bachelor/ette!”

Screen Shot 2016-04-15 at 3.32.46 AM

Don’t bite the hand that feeds you, Andi Dorfman.

The Bachelor alum opened up to Cosmopolitan about what it was really like to be a contestant on ABC‘s hit dating competition…and she plays pretty dumb while kinda badmouthing the show. Which is funny, seeing as she also agreed to be The Bachelorette. I don’t know how you feel about this, but it feels kinda BS-y to me.  But I’ll let YOU decide…

“I had no idea that I would be mic’d up the entire time, no idea that there would be 20 cameras at any given point … I was so sheltered, which was interesting because I didn’t come out of a sheltered, naïve world, especially with the job I was doing at the time [working as an attorney in Atlanta’s gang unit]. But yeah, reality television got me. Reality TV: 1; me: 0.”

And then the juicy stuff:

“I remember standing in the rose ceremony room, it’s 4:30 in the morning at this point, it’s freezing cold, everyone is cold and nervous standing on these risers, and you could hear the teeth chattering and the deep breaths. And I watch Juan Pablo come in with a stack of roses, and I’m thinking, ‘This is the stupidest thing I’ve ever been a part of. I’m standing here cold, my feet hurt, and I’m waiting for a dude I don’t know to give me a rose.'”

Remembering the fantasy suite with Juan Pablo, she said:

“I woke up the next morning and I was like, ‘It’s over, I’m done, there’s no way.’ The producers were like, ‘Are you sure? Do you want to stick it out?’ And I said, ‘Absolutely not.’ There wasn’t really any back and forth — it was my decision, and they were very respectful of it. I have a feminist in me, and to be in a situation where there are 30 girls dating one man, there’s already this inequality. Just because there are lots of girls and one guy, that doesn’t mean that the guy gets a free pass in how he treats her. I just wasn’t going to have it.

Ugh “I have a feminist in me” is one of the saddest statements I’ve heard. What ELSE is in you,  Andi? Anyhow, she’s still happy for the limelight:

“Now I’m like, I got to do this incredible thing that I had no business doing. I have no business being on television, being on a red carpet, being on a press tour. So I can’t help but look at it and feel like one of the luckiest girls in the world.”

She also admits that she probs wouldn’t have dated her former fiancé, Josh Murray if they hadn’t met on TV:

“When you go on this show, you put your best foot forward. You’re introducing yourself to the world, in a way — why would you want to show your worst qualities? I don’t think he hid who he was, but the situations we were in didn’t bring out his more negative traits. Like, I didn’t know he had a temper because every time he was with me, it was just the two of us in a palace or something. How could you not be happy?”

Ugh. Do you think she’s full of hot air like I do? WEIGH IN BELOW!

Bachelorette Jillian Harris Has Advice For Young JoJo

Screen Shot 2016-03-15 at 10.19.26 AM

From one similar-looking Bachelorette star to another…

Jillian Harris, our favorite rascally Canadian Bachelorette from season 5, gave advice to the newly crowned JoJo Fletcher when embarking on her “journey.” The gist?  to simply “be yourself.”

“It sounds really cliché, but if I were to go back and do my season over again, I would follow even more into the Kaitlyn Bristowe shoes,” Harris tells People on-set of filming her Mr. Clean’s Dirty Little Secrets campaign. “Even though she took a lot of flack for being off the cuff and a little bit off-side, that is more who I am.”

Harris was a contestant on Jason Mesnick‘s season of The Bachelor, finishing as second runner-up and became The Bachelorette in 2009, eventually becoming engaged to Ed Swiderski and (of course) splitting in 2010.

What kind of Bachelorette do you think JoJo will be?!

ABC Spoiled Its Own Bachelor Finale!

Screen Shot 2016-03-15 at 11.36.58 AM

Somebody on ABC‘s social media team is getting straight up FIRED.

The network took to their official Facebook page and revealed the big winner last night, but it was just a little too early…at least, for NY watchers.

The post has long since been deleted, but it revealed that runner up JoJo Fletcher as the show’s pick for the next Bachelorette... hours before the show aired in the Mountain and Pacific Time Zones! That’s a pretty big Bachelor fail.

The spoiler-y announcement pissed off lots of fans (and rightfully so) their finale enjoyment was ruined by the network’s own official social team. Again, someone must have got fired hardcore for that one.

What did YOU think of The Bachelor finale?

Bachelorette Alum Kaitlyn Bristowe Is Holding Off On Wedding Plans!

Screen Shot 2016-02-17 at 11.43.58 AM

Surprisingly enough, Kaitlyn Bristowe and Shawn Booth are still together, and while I want a wedding of theirs to crash-and-burn, I do respect that they are acting like normal people and just chilling out about marriage plans.

As one does on The Bachelor, the couple became engaged after 10 weeks of dating but are now settling in their new life together in Nashville. The 30-year-old Canada native told People:

“We’ve come full circle. There was no weird, ‘Oh no am I going to be able to live with this?’ I get mad at him when he shaves and his hair is all over the sink. But that’s about it!”

And they’re obnoxious as ever!

“We’re very touchy feely. That’s how we show our love. We grab each other’s butts all the time! … I love Shawn more now than the day he proposed. That was like a fantasy love. Now it’s real.”

And they’re not in a rush on getting hitched. Shawn said:

“The pressure doesn’t get to us at all. We only knew each other for ten weeks before I proposed. We’re both normal people and the most normal thing we can do is wait.”

His bride-to-be added:

“We’re living together, we’re enjoying being engaged. When we start to plan, we’ll let everybody know!”

You’d better. Everyone wants one of these reality couplings to work out. TELL US LOVE IS REAL!
