Did you hear that Emily Maynard and Brad Womack broke up? If you missed it being on the cover of every magazine ever, host Chris Harrison is here to catch you up to speed. (Dear Chris’ Voiceover, Emily and Brad’s proposal was not the most dramatic ones ever.)

Love Lessons from 'The Bachelorette': Love Means Never Having To Say You're Sorry for Passing Out Drunk

Aaaaand we’re back. The seventh season of The Bachelorette kicked off last night, and there was a nice mix of the familiar and the absurd. And there was a guy named Bentley who, despite being much older than Teen Mom Maci Bookout, is probably named after her kid. And he has a kid of his own, whose name is Cozy. Wait, maybe he and Maci should date!

Wait, what was I saying? Oh yeah, The Bachelorette. This show destroys me. Seriously, I watch The Real World/Road Rules Challenge, and I enjoy it more than listening to the people on this show blather about love and then break up six weeks later. So let’s just get into it, shall we? More »

Is Anyone Surprised That Brad Womack and Emily Maynard Broke Up?

After Brad Womack gave the final rose to Emily Maynard on the most recent season of The Bachelor, it hasn’t been a flower garden.

Now, Life and Style is reporting that Emily dumped Brad over the phone. Harsh! More »

Crushable Quotable: 'Bachelor' Producer Confirms the Show Will Always Be About White People

Last week after the dull finale to the second Brad Womack season of The Bachelor, I suggested a couple of ways to improve the show. Among them: get a Bachelor or Bachelorette of color.

Fleiss told Entertainment Weekly, “We always want to cast for ethnic diversity. It’s just that for whatever reason, they [non-white people?] don’t come forward. I wish they would.” More »

If the most recent lackluster season of The Bachelor: Electric Brad Womack Boogaloo indicated anything, it’s that the show is overdue for a reboot. They’ve been able to generate some actual watercooler buzz (the Jason/Melissa/Molly triangle made for good tabloid fodder, as did the eventual Jason/Molly wedding), but the return of Brad Womack and his vanilla personality, plus the choice of also-ran Ashley as the new Bachelorette served as reminders of why the show needs to change it up.
