    Re: Bachelorette 5 Thoughts and Comments

    Anyone pick up on Ed's shirts tonight matching what Jillian's description of her wedding would be like? Maybe we will get some additional "wedding plans" from the happy couple during the ATFR show, like a date for the wedding. I would really love to see/hear Tori's, Mom's and Grandma's views on Jillian's choice..........AFTER they have heard about Ed's "Chicago activities".

    Actually, I am sure I am correct, in that IF Ed's leave AND return part of the plan, for whatever reason, for example "scripted", Ed would have not been allowed to return home at all, and if he did, return home without a handler.

    I, too, am skeptical by nature and although it made sense to me, I wanted some sort of conformation as to how this situation would be handled by production.

    I originally posed the question to a knowledgeable poster at this board with a production source that I communicate with. Although I was first assured I would have my answer, I later received a PM that more or less blew me off.

    Well, I have a friend ... Someone I have always hesitated to bother with any questions concerning The Bachelor shows, but since the question conceptual, I decided to contact to get my answer.

    I made the call, said what I wanted to know. My friend found the question intriguing, and also interested in learning the answer, sent an email to her friend connected to The Bachelor franchise.

    The answer she received back was affirmative --- if Ed's leave and return planned by production, he would have had with him a handler.

    If you would like, I would be more than happy do dig up the email I received and post the exact content of the answer to the question that was forwarded to me. I actually covers the matter a bit more fully than I am doing so here.

    Let me know and I will.

    I think after the FINALE it's quite obvious that JILLIAN totally gave the Producer's their EDIT with the whole "E.D./VIAGRA" thing ...and the whole "my boyfriend's shooting blanks in the bedroom" over-n-over again EDIT.

    You can't help feeling bad for ED.

    I actually understand ED does Client Presentations and Meetings almost daily...presenting the MICROSOFT Brand. So this has got to have been super tough for him 2 handle.

    And because of the too obvious love-story between ED & JILL... I guess TP just thought...why not?...we'll just leak to a few longtime sluethers that ED's got a GF...maybe 2.

    I'm just saying...this guy is making $25K a month with Microsoft...so he must really love JILL something fierce...'cause ED sure didn't get 6 $$$ figures from TB.

    Best luck 2 u ED & JILLIAN!

    Reid is really ticked off about the whole thing in that video. Love how when they offered him a drink, he just took the whole bottle.

    They ply them with liqour all the time. One of the funniest lines ever was in Andrew Firestone's season where one of the girsl was so drunk and eating so much she said she'd be the fat girl at the reunion show.

    wonder if the reason Jillians comments seemed so harsh about Reid this past week is after seeing that departure video?

    Don't blame him one bit, putting it all out there for her after she begged him for it a week earlier and after she continued to tell him to trust her. I wish we know the exact bleeped out words he used to describe Ed, that would have been the absolute highlight of the season, for me at least.

    That's not what happened here, IMO. Take cheeky, for example. Her source in Chicago has nothing to do with the show. She's made that clear repeatedly. I believe she even said he's never even watched the show. And if I've read her posts right, Blue Frog is friends with one of these women. That's just two sources off the top of my head. There's no way I can see that production is behind this information.

    But they usually don't have liquor in minivan taxi's...how thoughtful of tptb!

    I actually feel better about the whole thing after seeing Reid in his diary...he knows the score...
