New Bachelorette Emily Maynard: I’m Really Happy Now!

New Bachelorette Emily Maynard liked her life pre-Bachelorette, but now she is REALLY happy!

Though she won’t disclose more details about her Bachelorette season, she did dish to People.com about her daughter, life and the search for true love.

On The Real Emily: “The guys came in having an image of me in their head but as they got to know me better, they all said, [I was] nothing like they thought I’d be and that it was a good thing. I’m feisty and sassy. It takes a little bit for me to really feel comfortable but I’ve never been called ‘boring’ in my normal everyday life.”

Which Guys Got Noticed Right Away: “I loved Ryan’s note. That was sweet and endearing. Jack rolling in on a skateboard was so cool. Even the cheesy ones were great icebreakers because you are so nervous. But Travis with the egg was a tough one even in the moment. And some of the guys who didn’t make the strongest first impression really surprised me.”

Emily’s Dating Style: “If I was a single 26-year-old without a daughter back home, I’d be doing the same things the other Bachelorettes did. But Ricki is at the forefront of my mind with dating and everything. I wouldn’t get in a hot tub on a first date in my everyday life so I sure as hell am not going to do it on [TV].”

On Explaining the Cameras to Ricki: “I like to keep her sheltered. She’s not at an age where she can even begin to understand the reason for the cameras. I told her it was for a very elaborate home video that she could watch way down the road. … Ricki’s life was not really affected at all. She was very protected throughout the entire process. She didn’t see the guys. I got to spend a lot of time with her, take her to school and do all my mom stuff.”

Chris Harrison Getting Divorced!

Bachelor host Chris Harrison is now a bachelor himself!

The host, who was chosen to be the masthead for The Bachelor and The Bachelorette franchise for his strong marriage, called it quits with wife, Gwen, after 20 years.
Sources say the split was very friendly, and the two are looking forward to having a close relationship for their two children.  Harrison, 40, sure did make the marriage last a long time (in Hollywood terms), but I’m still disappointed at this news.  What do you think-  will he keep hosting? Will he be on the show?

 

Thoughts?

Bachelor and Bachelorette Sued For Alleged Racial Descrimination

Is The Bachelor racist?

Nathaniel Claybrooks, 39, and Christopher Johnson, 26, think so.  Both are African-American former college football players, and think so!  Claybrooks and Johnson answered an open casting call for The Bachelor in Nashville last August. According to People,  they were rushed through the audition process, while witnessing other (whiter!) applicants getting far more attention.

The lawsuit alleges that ABC “knowingly, intentionally and as a matter of corporate policy refused to cast people of color in the role of the Bachelor and Bachelorette.”

ABC responds by saying, “we have had various participants of color throughout the series’ history…as always, we continue to seek out participants of color for both The Bachelor and The Bachelorette.

Hmmm….I’ve watched many seasons of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette and definitely noticed some whitewashing going on.  I’m all for this lawsuit diversifying the show- let’s see a Bachelor or Bachelorette of color!

Thoughts?
