I would like to take this moment to plead with Bachelor producers. HOW ABOUT SOME NEW MEAT ON THE SHOW!? Seems like every season they’re recycling Bachelor’s and Bachelorette’s from previous seasons! I know this means higher ratings, but in my opinion, it makes it so much less interesting. I thought Roberto Martinez (Ali’s fiance) was so dull, but that’s just my humble opinion.
His engagement to Ali Fedotowsky didn’t work out, but Life & Style can exclusively reveal that Roberto Martinez is giving reality-show romance another go — as the star of The Bachelor!
“He’s already signed the contract,” a production insider confirms to Life & Style in the new issue, on newsstands tomorrow.
The 29-year-old insurance agent proposed on the season-six finale of The Bachelorette, but in November, Ali, 27, called off the engagement after 18 months.
“They chose him because he’s very likable,” the insider tells Life & Style. While Ali claimed the split was “100 percent mutual,” the insider notes, “in the back of Roberto’s mind, I’m sure there’s some enjoyment in getting revenge on Ali.”
I mean how about Lamar Hurd for the Bachelor?!? Let’s get THIS GUY on the show!

Emily Maynard is determined to be the best dressed Bachelorette ever – and with a whopping $350,000 wardrobe budget, she’s already showing off her amazing style.
“We had an enormous clothing budget,” Emily’s stylist, Cary Fetman, tells In Touch in an exclusive interview. “It was bigger than any previous season – and we still went over!”
No doubt, Emily, 26, is pulling out all the stops in her quest to find Mr. Right.
“Emily has fabulous taste and was involved in deciding what we would dress her in this season,” Cary adds. “For me, it was like dressing a Barbie doll!”
And while Emily dazzles in her strappy $1,045 Christian Louboutin Straratata heels and a $40,000 nude Randi Rahm gown, there are some things she absolutely refuses to wear.
“Emily hates flats,” Cary says to In Touch. “She loves to be a girlie girl. She loves dresses and anything glitzy and sparkly.”
Despite Emily’s Southern charm, she isn’t your typical girl next door. Confesses Cary: “She is not a jeans girl by any means.”
How many of you are watching Emily’s season? I actually am really enjoying it! I think she’s doing a great job so far. Who are your favorite bachelor’s? I really like Sean & Doug!

Hayden Panettiere was spotted making her way out of her hotel in Soho over the weekend.
The actress will star in a new drama on ABC, which will film in Nashville. She tweeted: “Happy to announce that our show on ABC’s Nashville has been picked up! Nashville here we come!!!!”
The 23-year-old actress is trying to adjust to a Southern lifestyle, “U know ur not in LA anymore when ur at the airport and hear “Paging someone who just went through security, u left ur fishing rod.””

Rumor has it ABC was very close to canceling ‘Cougar Town’. But Courteney Cox and her cast members no longer have to worry, as TBS has ordered a fourth season of the comedy to start airing in 2013!
TBS to the rescue!
The cable network has ordered a fourth season of the comedy to begin airing in early 2013. In addition, TBS has purchased the rights to Cougar Town‘s first three seasons of 61 episodes that originally aired on ABC. “Cougar Town is a smart, whimsical sitcom that draws its humor from likable, relatable characters” said Michael Wright, president, head of programming for TBS. “We are thrilled to have Cougar Town moving to the TBS neighborhood as the network continues to expand its slate of original comedy series.”
On ABC this season, Cougar Town averaged 5.3 million viewers and a 1.9 rating in the adult demo, nosediving after it was moved to Tuesday nights and away from its previous Modern Family lead-in. With the axe hanging over the show, TBS stepped in and rescued Courteney Cox and Co. from cancellation.
Busy Phillips, who plays Laurie Keller on the comedy, had a couple choice words for ABC earlier this week. Before she learned the fate of her show, she said:
“It’s not been fun to feel like the ugly stepsister of the network,” Phillipps, who plays Laurie Keller, told E! Online. “They moved us around, they took us off the air for months … If TBS is willing to launch the show in a real great way and we would actually have like billboards and commercials, that would be really cool.”
Philipps has been vocal about her frustrations. Initially, when ABC decreased “Cougar Town’s” episode order, she told TVLine, “The writers have amazing stuff planned out for this season, and now they’re going to have to condense … I feel bad for them. I feel bad for everyone. It’s a bummer. It sucks.”
I only watched one – maybe two episodes of ‘Cougar Town’. I just didn’t find it funny, not my kind of humor I guess. Are any of you still watching it?
