    Six months if she is stubborn; Three months if she really has her head screwed on right.

    Did anyone see this interview?

    Web Exclusive: The Bachelorette Dishes - ABC News

    When they were asked about fights she basically said there was one where he was out and she couldn't get ahold of him and she admitted 'maybe it's me being needy'. I think there's already cracks in this relationship when it comes to trust - probably partly because of all the ED rumors.

    I predict their relationship is going to be trainwreck.

    Does cheeky or Blue Frog know if ED's circle of friends include the girlfriends? IE. are his friends also friends with these girls?
    I think the feeling is mutual. He also got worried when she was out 8 hours shopping. You can twist anything to make it what you want to hear. Obviously there are people on here that will NEVER be satisfied that they are happy and in love. They'll be walking down the aisle and some of you will still be saying "Ed just isn't into Jillian" "She's so thinking about Reid right now"

    ITA! I think it was both of them saying that they were just worried about the other one. My husband still does this and vice versa! Where were you I couldn't get a hold of you and I was worried!! Ya and we have been married 25 years!!

    Or how about this - ABC and Warners is putting together a DVD of the season and want to sell the episodes? I think there would be buyers.

    If he's not actually bored with her, why does he appear to be? I'm willing to believe that he's not, but he looks like he is.

    I originally thought the transition to their new site along with sponsorships expiring was the reason the Bachelorette content has been pulled; however, they've also pulled all of TB's content off of YouTube on the ABC Network Channel - while keeping plenty of "old vids" up for other shows.

    1) doesn't believe their version because they are exaggerated and coming from someone with an ax to grind
    2) Ed's "story" is the truth and he told her all of it when and as it happened.
    3) She is in love and trusts her man more than some bitter ex's and a bunch of media ho "boys" (jeremy and RS) with too much time on their hands.
    Amen!

    With the speculation of an upcoming story that would support the whole Ed girlfriendgate I again shake my head at how poorly handled this situation was from all sides. For whatever reason they decided to take the "bury your head in the sand" approach which has their butts in the air for a perfect bullseye. Yes I believe Jillian knows Ed's story. I believe she knew some of it before making her final choice. She knew some of it when she kept Ed over Reid at the F3 cut. I believe that did discuss the situation in the FS and that it was touched on at ATFR.

    Why they would choose to sweep it under the rug and not address it outright so they could set the tone of the big reveal just baffles me. BY not addressing it and giving "their side" of the story first it has left them venerable to more gossip, rumors, and stories coming out. They had the perfect chance to whitewash the whole subject, show everyone that Jillian knew and had forgiven if there was anything to forgive, and the issue was settled. Instead they didn’t address it which has left them venerable to continued stories. Now the media will be allowed to set the tone, and knowing the media, it won’t be as pretty.

    They can say it’s not anyone’s business all they want, but THEY are the ones that decided to sign up for their lives to be broadcast on national tv. They opened the door, and after the way things went down last season Jillian went into it full well knowing what a public lashing she could be setting herself up for. If you want your private life to stay private then you shouldn’t choose to live it on national tv (Hi, Mrs. Rosenthal---please tell Reid this!!!!!)

    The thought has crossed my mind that maybe this was the plan all along. TPTB have learned that the more people talk about the show (good or bad) the more people tune in. After knowing that Jillian’s final choice was Ed they could have easily downplayed the whole girlfriend drama this season. But they played it up. They kept in her saying that it would have been rude if someone came with a girlfriend, and about how upset she was that RC. So much so that they totally cut Tori’s visit and meeting the guys. They had plenty of alternative film to show us. But they kept harping on the girlfriend subject.

    The story that TPTB wanted to tell this season may have not ended with ATFR…
