    I got the impression that most of the women were totally "over" Ben. Yes, a few think he's wonderful, but most have moved on. I'm sure watching his antics with Courtney drummed most of the romance out of them.

    Ben did get off easily. Is it because they couldn't risk his not having an acceptable reply to cover why he was disrespectful to the other women? I am sure they could have scripted something for him. I hated the Courtney teasers for 2 segments and then cutting to ads. I feel like she is the kind of woman who has spent her life being hurtful and then throwing out empty apologies when she gets confronted. You don't become a b**ch overnight. If you handle stress by being that way I am confident that at 28 years old it isn't the first time you have been stressed. There were some very orange women there last night.
    That was a great message! And I've had a terrible day, so thank you.I love random acts of kindness.Really, realy appreciated.Scott- RIP SDL<3

    IDK - I was watching Kacie B's expressions during the "final two" promo and she looked like she was still bothered. I think she still cares...

    Courtney is the sacrificial pawn. Fleiss is throwing her under the bus. These season came down to conflict and they didn't want the other bachelorettes to trash The Bach. Ben got the kid glove treatment merely by eliminating any time to explore his errors in judgment. I would like to have seen Emily or Kacie B or Nicki confront Ben on why he went skinny dipping. I would like Emily to force Ben to confront his arrogance when she was trying to warn him about Courtney. Or why he ignored the warnings of so many of the women (who did seem to be unwilling for give up any specifics) and picked Court. Clearly Little Ben was in charge and the other women were just wasting their time. After Puerto Rico it was all over but the crying. Game, Set, Match to Court.

    Emily - you go girl! You're smart, beautiful, clever and articulate. Wishing you extremely good luck in the future.

    Samantha - please go back on your meds......


    I was waiting for SOMEONE, ANYONE to ask Blakeley: Okay you are not a stripper. So what EXACTLY is a VIP Cocktail Waitress? There are youtube vids out there of Blakeley, quite intoxicated, giving a lap dance to a girl. So what IS a VIP cocktail waitress? Enquiring minds etc. etc..

    Ben didn't get much air time because they normally don't have an F2 girl there....Courtney clearly got what was supposed to be his screen time. Which is probably for the best since Ben is so dull. I've been waiting all season for the girls to confront him on the skinny dipping issue and that didn't happen. Disappointing.

    As for Courtney...ugh. She said it in her own words...she's only sorry because it's caused her family and friends humiliation. I didn't buy what she was selling because she's a model...this isn't the first time she's had to live with a bunch of other girls.

    Emily was cracking me up. That girl is so cute and funny and it's obvious the other girls all like her.
    I hate when the cops throw me in the back of the squad car ....like they didn’t hear me call shotgun.

    I agree. The only one who was still drinking the Kool-Aid was Nicki, which really surprised me. I guess she's not a smart as she seemed. None of the other girls really seemed upset at all, not even Kacie B or Emily. I think Nicki is just so infatuated with the idea of being in love, she refuses to let go. Craziness!

    Re: 3/5 Bachelor 16: WTA or WTN **West Coast Spoilers**

    This article was in the Los Angeles Times this morning -

    ****************************** *
    Are your ears still ringing? Because mine certainly are, after all of the high-pitched screeching and whining that went down on tonight's "Women Tell All" episode of "The Bachelor."

    There was so much talking over one another and name-calling and tear-shedding that it was difficult for me to make it through the entire two episodes. Even worse, I sat through a nine-hour-long day -- yes, really --during which the episode was filmed so I could bring you guys the behind-the-scenes dish. And frankly, I think some of it is far more interesting than what made it to air tonight.

    So, without further ado, here are five things you didn't see during Monday's episode:

    1. Chris Harrison almost passed out. When the show's host began the day, he told the crowd he wasn't feeling well and he apologized repeatedly for his raspy voice. It was evident he was eager to keep things moving along at a rapid pace, and seemed more annoyed than usual when the ladies began talking over one another. Then, moments after Courtney came on stage and began crying, Chris took a break. It was a perplexing time for him to depart the stage, considering Courtney had just begun to get choked up, and I assumed he'd want to milk the emotion. When he didn't return after an hour, everyone began scratching their heads -- and then, suddenly, show creator Mike Fleiss came backstage to tell a handful of journalists that Chris had fallen ill. "He almost fainted," Fleiss explained. "He had to lie down and get an IV with fluids." Like a true professional, Chris eventually made it back to the stage to finish up, albeit with a pallid appearance.

    2. A private conversation between Courtney and a show producer went public. During Chris’ temporary hiatus, one of the show’s producers went over to comfort Courtney, who was clearly very distraught after being attacked by numerous ladies. I was sitting backstage with a group of other journalists, watching the taping on a remote monitor. While Chris was gone, the camera and microphones were left on on-stage, and so the press was accidentally privvy to the intimate conversation. Courtney complained she felt like a deer in the headlights, and said she’d expected at least one of the women to come to her defense.

    “But I didn’t play with my hair once. Aren’t you proud?” she added.

    “Yes,” the producer replied. “That was good.”

    The staffer tried to distract Courtney by talking to her about the kind of cigarettes she smokes -- American Spirits, apparently -- and the model soon began to feel better.

    “I’m not feeling very emotional anymore,” she said, her tears dispersing. “You made me feel better. I appreciate it.”

    Then, she began to fret about coming off as too cold: “I don’t know if I can show that emotion again,” she fretted.

    3. Jamie over-shared. You know Jamie, the girl who awkwardly straddled Ben and gave him an instructional kissing lesson before being sent home this season? It was bad enough that she embarrassed herself on Monday’s episode by telling Ben that she’d be his sloppy seconds if things don’t work out with his final pick. But then she began sharing very personal details about her upbringing in an effort to explain her behavior this season, and things just got awkward. She revealed she grew up in an abusive home with guns and drinking, and later gained custody of her younger siblings. “I think you’re a fabulous guy, and I really wanted to get to know you,” she told a shell-shocked Ben. “But I just felt so much pressure to hide all of that. The whole kiss thing was me trying to grab your attention.” Yikes.

    4. Many of the women insinuated Ben only liked Courtney because she's a model. Samantha -- who, let’s face it, nobody even remembered before the reunion -- felt especially strong about this. When Jamie suggested that Ben’s eyes lit up any time Courtney came in, Samantha responded: “Um, yeah, because she was a model. Ben came out of this wanting to say he [slept with] a model, and that was it,” she concluded.

    In an interview following the taping -- posted below -- Emily basically said the same thing, only in a more polite fashion.

    “Do I think there was some draw because she was a model?” Emily mused. “I mean, there's no question. I think he's a man, and he has a penis, so that's how it's gonna go. Maybe he turned a few blind eyes. He looked away, and there she was on the cover of Fitness, and that's what he focused on.”

    5. Ben complained about his "Bachelor" duties. After completing a round of interviews with the media following the "Women Tell All" show, Ben exhaled and went over to vent to a group of show insiders. "One more of these [expletive] things and I'm done," he said, likely referring to the then-impending "After the Final Rose" taping. "I have so many better things to do with my life."

    Nice.
